Interesting idea.

I would suggest making it similar to an ADFC (mass 2, cost 8). The
represents the command communications relay.

One other thing that it could do is to allow a group of ships within 6"
the ship with a Command Bridge to move as a unit when using cinematic
movement. By this, I mean if the squadron has 4 ships plus the ship with
CB, movement orders are written for the command ship and the rest of the
ship follow, but stay in formation (i.e. if ship A is 2" ahead and 1"
of the command ship, it will still be 3" ahead and 2" left of the
ship after they make a 3 point turn to the starboard.

	  /  /--------C
	 A  /
	  C	       A and C represent starting and ending
		       points. @ indicates where A would have
		       normally ended up.
