Hmmm.  Interesting idea.  Only saves you 20% of the mass though, since
S'V drives are a flat 10%.  So not that much better than a war ship.
Now, a 1200 mass sumer S'V ship scares the willies out of me, even if
it had drives.	Class 8 beams or 9 beams?  200 dice at under 12"?
(based on a hull 5x the size of a Vas'Sa'Rosh)
