This is, I think, the reason some of us want some sort of morale rule.
In the
absence of a campaign setting, the "force commander" will fight each
ship to
the death. In reality, he might do that. Or, he might have his head
handed to
him on a platter for destroying valuable assets after it was clear that
he had
no hope of winning. 

Players will send vessels to their doom if they are losing a scenario
there is still a tiny sliver of a chance of salvaging a win. "Real life"
commanders can't do that.

Morale rules, which would be optional, help simulate the "big picture".
