Each time has been a different facet, I guess.

I suppose my view of a campaign includes a strong element of
economics; insofar as I can tell, the "pseudo-campaign" y'all
are running do not.  That is, it sounds like you can pretty much
design any ship of any size you like and bring it to the table,
without having to pay attention to things like R&D costs, scale
efficiency, logistics, getting the fleet from point A to point
B, and so forth.  If you described more detail, I didn't see it
(which is not to say you didn't send it--I get 100-200 messages
daily and I tend to skim).

This is _not_ to say that "bring 5000 points of any description
to the board" wouldn't be interesting--it would be a useful
venue to experiment with--I just don't think of that as a
campaign.  Perhaps you have a URL with the rules where I could
read them all in one chunk and get the complete picture?
