	I've had the same number of ships that Lew reported (4), but the
tonnage was significantly down.  It was three Wasps vs. a Shrike.  Obviously,
the Shrike won.

	Actually, I did have one larger battle - it involved 5 'vessels'.
It occured near the end of the module "Heart of the Enemy", which I had
modified to my own ends.  The combat was a Shrike (the same as above), a
Nautiloid (yes, it was crewed by Illithids), a Mantis (scro), and a Man-O'War
(elves) PLUS a Primary Witchlight Marauder.
	The battle wasn't all that ugly tactical-wise.  The Shrike rammed the
Nautiloid and got locked.  The Mantis grappled the Man-O'War.  And the
renegade Mind Flayer in control of the Marauder just flew around making
every body really annoyed.
