Man this would be funny if the irony wasn't so painful. :-)
Back in the day when I was designing a fleet and attendant doctrine I
was going by the "round up" rule for turns, so I did what I considered
the most logical thing to do, which was give all my ships an odd
thrust rating. When asked about it I said truthfully that I did it to
get the extra turn as my doctrine was designed for maneuverability,
and lots of short-range firepower at the expense of no long-range
firepower. I was then roundly criticized and castigated for being
"cheesy", etc, etc, etc. Not needing any further headaches I pretty
much shelved my FT plans and moved on to other things.
Ah well, such is life. :-)
