	I tried recreating that feel too...  Went so far as having
"landjammer" helms similar to the speeder bikes from Return of the Jedi. (:

	Though I didn't use to think so, I now believe it's better to
leave epic space battle to game systems more suited for the job.  I
noticed you mentioned Robotech three times.  Ever look into Rifts?  (I've
never played it, but it has a Robotech expansion.)

	Just a thought...

ps.  For anybody still following this thread, the Peddle Helms I was
refering to are actually Peddleships from The Heart of the Enemy.  The
peddle helms were my generalization of the mechanism.
