        Correct me if I am worng on this one, I seam to remember somewhere
that when the Helm is active the air inside the ships envelope is at the
normal presure and tempreture for the person on the helm?  I think maybe it
was one of the novels.  The planet they were on was to cold so they
activated the helm so the temp on the ship was warmer.  Anyone else remember
this?

        Maybe a way to specilize with one type of ship then takeing a
penality in all others.  Perhaps going even futher with Spec. into 1 ship
<personal ship> then normal for all ships of that type and a larger penality
on all other ships.
        "Ok, So this tub lists to the left a bit.  I compensate for it!!"
        Same guy in another ship "HOW THE &*#^@ WAS I TO KNOW YA WERE NOT TO
PULL TO THE RIGHT THAT HARD!!!"

        Cheese again, I am only going to beable to finish a few tonight.
I'll read more when I can see strait with a few hours of sleep.  Take care all.
