Greetings Fellow Jammers, If I'm not totally senile (a point that can be debated later - if I remember), the armada in Space Lairs seems to have a lot more weapons than the basic design. I don't have the books in front of me, but I seem to recall an inordinant number of ballitstae and catapults, so many that the weapons crew requirements would sorely tax the normal crew limit of 100. This would tend to suggest that the citadel from Space Lairs is either a space station, or is the citadel from a new, larger than 100 ton armada varient, developed to assure the continued dominance of the true rulers of all space, the elves (sing along with me - Elfin elfin uber alles, elfin uber all the spheres!). I see 2 easy ways to power a 150-200 ton vessel (and wasn't there a hint somewhere that the elves were working on an even larger set of ships? If so, the Super Armada is but a prototype to test some of the new technology.). One is to use 2 helms in tandem, like the zoo ship. The other would involve an upgraded major helm (soon to be available at your local Arcane dealership - financing available at very competitive rates).
