Re: Ship design note: liquid hydrogen is not dense

Re: Are Multiple Medic Checks Allowed?

If there's a factor change, the medic either notices something new or remembers a more effective treatment.

Or a better medical practitioner takes an interest.

Re: Does the Scout come with weapons?

I believe the technical term would be demilitarized.

As regards to power budget deficits, that may lie more with the game designers and edition evolution.
