2 pointsIt's worth keeping in mind that the Beta ships are literally just for the Beta. They are not the actual designs for the Third edition game. For example, the new Boridino class Battleship is not the same as the beta test commonwealth Battleship (it has a different profile, an integrated cryo generator and many more distinctions). Those units are just for beta testing and are intentionally generic (and almost bland) . You'll see many differences in the final units when the game comes out.
1 pointThat is exactly what I needed to read Stuart. Now if you could just condense the units lists as having that many bland units for all those factions when they're really not needed (as is why have eight factions with twenty ships each that are the same? Just have three factions or so?) But now we know.
