General questions/comments:

* Which movement system is used - Vector or Cinematic?

* How big are the gaming tables?

* "Measuring the distance between ships will be allowed after a ship
declared its intention to to fire, but not before." This is a rule I
personally find rather... strange (to use a non-offensive word) if you
assume modern tracking equipment; but it might be necessary to keep the
game time down <shrug>

Fleet Action-specific questions/comments:

* I note you copied Allan Goodall's human fleets straight off, warts
(or rather mis-spellings) and all <g> Take another look at the names of
the NAC CHs and the NSL BBs, will you?

* If Phalon fleets are used in the Fleet Action tournament, when and by
whom are the Pulser configurations determined?

* In the Phalon Carrier fleet, the Tuuloth-class Warrior is listed as a
"BC". While I agree that its NPV (and combat power) are closer to most
human BCs than to their CHs, its listed "Human Class Equivalent" in FB2
is "CH", not "BC".

* Should the abbreviation for "Phalon Conglomerate" really be identical
the one for "Politically Correct"..?

* The Kra'Vak Carrier fleet is worth 1514 points, not 1494. (The NPV
for the Do'San CVL given in FB2 is wrong; it should be 691 rather than
Replacing the Ka'Tak with a Lu'Dak reduces the fleet's value to 1479
points, which is more in line with the other fleets.

* Why don't the NSL or ESU have any Carrier fleet options in the Fleet
Action tournament? (Fleet composition for the NSL could be 1xCV, 1xCE,
1xCL, 2xDD, 2xFF, 4 standard fighter squadrons (1499 points); the ESU
fleet could be eg. 1xCVL, 1xVoroshilev CH, 1xCL, 2xVolga DH, 2xWarsaw
DD, 1xFF (1497 points).)
