Wasn't that the multi-player battle where each player had one specific 
other player as his objective (until that target had been destroyed when

they switched to the next victim, etc.)? As I recall part of the reason
your success was that the player that was supposed to go after you got 
nailed by the player chasing *him* early in the battle, and your next 
would-be nemesis was way out of position to catch you... or was that 
another battle?

I wouldn't take Fleet Book-standard ships against *any* custom-built
in FB1 or FB2 Vector...
