[Bri] I don't care for this. You are adding mass to the ship without
to adjust engines, screens, etc. based on ship mass.
I would, however, allow Sa'Vasku to start with drone groups generated in
womb if the mass is marked off before the game.

[Bri] Again, you are adding mass without adjusting engines, screens,
based on ship mass.
