} Well, my idea was not to use them to replace actual spelljamming
} spacecraft. Of course they couldn't possibly survive for prolonged
} voyages... but during a single battle? Or to recon/patrol near the
} mothership? For flights less than an hour or so, they'd be ideal, with a
} respectable SR to boot.

 Uhm.  For a single battle?  Do you realize what you are saying?  Lets
continue with the griffin as an example...  the iny miny little griffin
would have to be trained all the way to his adulthood and then he shall be
able to go into that 'single battle', now it takes ages to train the thing,
lots of money to train it too, not to mention to feed and all, so all this
money and effort is thrown away 'during a single battle', nope, doesn't work
that way, I believe that there is a way around it, perhaps some magical
incantation to straighten up the odds, make it more possible, more likely,
that would certainly help, and _then_ the creatures could go along for some
short patrol-like mission.
