     I don't necessarily dislike the idea/concept, BUT what if a 
'K' frigate with 4 X type 1s and 2 scatterguns flosts up to your 
heavy cruiser sometime.   what if he picks up 16 dice that hit 
on a 2 or better, what if you take 13 hits, just what kind
of damage multiplier are you considering?  Also consider the 
other frigate comes in next turn.

Providing all with a wet blanket is sometimes ones lot in life.

Bye for now,
