	I finnally got bored enough to type this; have fun.


First off 3 new hlm types I use:

		Super Helm
        Similar to a major helm, the super helm has a 3 lvl to 1 SR
drive ratio (DR).  The difference is that it can power ships of up to
200 tons.  The drawback is that each hull design requires a slightly
different version of the helm.  (Don't ask why, the Arcane didn't tell
me)  A super helm CAN be retrofitted to a different hull type, but takes
up 3d4 tons of cargo space.
		Price: 500,000 gp

		Hyper Helm
        A hyper helm is the most powerful helm currently available.  It
has a 4-1 DR.  It also is specific to each hull type, with retrofitting
being the same as for a super helm.  The hyper helm can power a ship up
to 300 tons.
		Price: 1 Mill. gp

		Psionic Helm
        This helm is similar in appearance to a series helm.  For every
active psionic helm linked on the ship 1 SR is provided.  Each active
helmsman must expend 20 PSP's per 6 hrs. of travel to power the helm.
If a helmsman leaves the helm, he is psycically drained (No psionic use)
for 2d4 rnds. These helms can be powered by anyone with psionic ability;
including wild talents and monsters.  Each extra helm on the ship over 2
takes up 1/2 ton of cargo space.
		Price: 100,000 gp per linked helm

NOTE:  These helms follow the standard 12 cont. use rules.

Here's an example of a ship using the hyper helm

		Behemoth
Built By:		Kragthoi
Used By:	Kragthoi
Tonnage:	300
HP:		300
Crew:		20/100 for Kragthoi  or 80/300 for M-sized
MC:		E (Rigged)
Landing
   Land:		No
   Water:	No
AR:		4 (Increased Thickness)
Saves:		Metal
Power Type:	Hyper Helm
SR:		As Helmsman
Standard Arms:	8 M. Cat., 8 M. Ball., 6 H. Cat., 6 H. Ball., 3 Bombards, 2 M. Jet., Blunt Ram
Cargo:		70 tons
Keel:		300'
Beam:		150'

        The Kragthoi build these ships to roam the Flow and Wildspace in
serch of prey to hunt.  They will chase down anything that runs, but if
approached peacefully will usually not attack.  The Behemoth has a large
top deck that can hold 3 ships of 20 tons or less to ferry hunting
parties to & from the surface.  The Behemoth is a virtual jungle of
vegetation, serving to replenish the air and feed the livestock.  Cargo
space is usually used to carry hunting trophies from the expidition.
	These hulls can only be bought in Kragthoi - controlled spheres for 3 to 4 mill. gp.

NOTE: The Kragthoi are my take on the Predetor from the movies.  I can post stats...
