Good morning (here anyway).

We are starting to see a bit of that happening here, but the solution
seems to be to spread it out.  If everything bigger than a light
cruiser has large amounts of PDS's and everything bigger than a cruiser
has an ADFC it works out the same.  I just lost 8 fighter groups and
had almost 40 SM's knocked out (I always stage fighters and SM's for
the same time) on one turn.  The only reason I survived to run away
was because I did manage to get enough fighters and SM's to take out
a CVL which had waited too long to launch.

That brings up a question.  Can you recover fighters while warming
up FTL drives?	IE, announce drive warmup, move fighters, move ship
live through turn, recover fighters, next turn 1/2 move and FTL out.

Roger (Who still thinks the absolute best weapons in the game are
       beams, it's just SM's are fun. :)
