That means the presentation of the Early Years could be as two eras, one mini-era at the expense of the other, or some bizarre mashup. I don't know which is best, really, though I lean toward the "two separate eras" type idea.


I am not in the production process. I'd think you would see the designs and how they play under FC. With the simplified rules of FC is it really that big a difference between W and Y, or can you just split the difference.

So, I guess W-ships would only have a max baseline of 8, and Y ships a max baseline of 16?

Oh, the two designs play well enough with each other. That isn't the problem.

The problem is that there are just too darn many of them. Smile Trying to get all of both series into a single Briefing with 72 ships means loads of compromises if all are put into a single volume. And they must be spanned across two volumes, the W/Y split seems the most reasonable.

And, yes, those baseline speeds are correct (among other rules).
