No worries, Bob. Everyone knows that frying pans are the most destructive weapon ever created ;)

Even the shortest range CWIS mounts should be able to handle a few speedboats, no?

Never mind when the lasers and rail guns are widely deployed...

CWIS mounts have had this very software upgrade for well over a decade.  all ships also have quite a few .50 mounts now.  its not like we just started cruising in the Persian Gulf last week.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

They'll be quite sad to find out after putting so much time into that giant fiberglass movie prop.

For all East Coast Grogs, this could be a lot of fun.

Thank you, Stagger.  For me, Grogheads is like an old country store.  People come in with their stuff, leave with some stuff, but everyone sits around the crackerbarrel sharing yarns,

That is the ugliest flucking thing I've ever seen afloat, except for the Merrimac and the bodies Star dumps into the swamps behind his house.

Which of course means it must be one of the deadliest.

First we're going to have to figure out how make them levitate. Then we can make 'em all purty.
