There's an Idea...
the cruiser icons could represent scout or patrol fleets,
the dreadnought Icons would represent a battle line
squadron, and the carrier icon could represent fleet
auxiliary craft (transports, and tenders, etc...) we could
use the icons upside down to play in a double blind mode...

the other thing I thought of doing is to discard the TI
rules and use the space hexes to make a sector map for an
operational level Campaign.  In this mode, you can assign
the hexes in any way you wish to represent the worlds
available in you sector.  Then assign a fixed number of
ships (perhaps from the tuffleyverse) ignore R&D for the
purposes of this campaign and go at each other.

hope this get those creative juices flowing
