Re: Her Imperial Majesty's Space Navy

HIMSN Shipyards: I'd expect their base shipyards to offer the whole range of native equipment, regardless of the TL of the system in which it's located. Possibly at a premium, of course. That should certainly apply to their HQ in interstellar space. Unless this is already the case?

<grumbles> I suppose I'd better install the OXP and take a look. Where is the version you're using?
HIM at Tetiri would either be ignorant or unconcerned.

Re: Her Imperial Majesty's Space Navy
