I'm up for that.  Beth, you (and your second) build the fleet;
we'll take the single-arc version of whatever you build.  We can
rework the designs here or you can have some third party do it.

(mildly) I'm not a Rebel--I'm just in a Southerner in favor of
observing the constitutional precedence of State over Federal
government, and individuals over the State government.	Now, I
grant you that involves opposing the big-government monolithic
Federal doctrine instituted about 140 years ago--but I'm the one
who's acting in accordance with the Constitution, therefore if
anyone is rebelling against legitimate authority, it's the
Northern Aggressor government.	(Yeeeeeeee-haaa!)
