But that is just part of the fun to be had with the Orion. Because the Dacian is quite simplified.
In fact, why limit yourself to 1 fuel? If you build a proper calculator, your options become quite impressive.
For instance, suppose your MCRB with Mk8 and HP wants to tow an Annihilation he knows nothing about.
The lightest version of the Annihilation has no weapons and torps tubes, 1 fuel and no cargo: 961 mass
The heaviest version of the Annihilation has heavy blasters and gamma tubes, 320 fuel and 1260 cargo: 2650 mass
You can tow this Annihilation in any possible configuration with no risk between 2 - 64 ly, using 1 - 35 fuel.
Now what I'm wondering about, as this tactic does not work in PHost, does the 1 fuel Dacian trick work in PHost?
Guess I've got some tests to do
