	Not that I'm aware of.  In fact, I think in the rules it states
that a "ton" is a measure of volume.  Personally I think it causes problems,
as your question shows.

	According to the rules, it would.

	Whatever you want it to be... (:

	Get better Armadas.  Or...

	Ever hear of Secondary Witchlight Marauder?  (:  :)

	Better yet, just have an "accidental fire".  Destroy their current
weapons and damage the ship just enough for all of their money to go to
repairs.  That way they won't be able to get any *new* weapons.

	Hope that helps...
