>I would suggest that FTL drives not be compatible with each other to a
large extent - perhaps they take up more than the "standard" 10%, so
having one is necessary but having two makes your ship too weak to fight
effectively. Otherwise, when the FTL Guys take over the Wormhole Empire,
they're suddenly _everywhere_...

Concur, except I was thinking of the other way around.	The Slow FTL
(Tier 2) have one set of equipment and can go anywhere; the Fast FTL
(Tier 1) can have one set of gear and go quickly to a limited set of
destinations, or the other set of gear and have no speed advantage over
Tier 1, or both sets of gear but at the mass penalty.

If there are no mass limts on Wormhole jumps, the Tier 1 guys will adopt
battleriders (with slow FTL) and tenders (with jump drive only).
