I always hear, well you get the ship as the Tholian, a ship you can't clone, nor rebuild, not to mention the costs involved with Keeping up webs to drain ships, the very fact that the Tholian normally has small fleet before limit as he has to work hard REAL hard on his economy for the long haul. So after ship limit ,as the Tholian spends a fortune to keep others out or keep them fenced in, he watchs others rack up PBP's, and they get all the ship builds, when he does go to war the Tholian has to use combo's to fight the big boys with his own ships, so even as he is getting PBP's, he is giving PBP's up to the others that have a head start, not to mention have you tried keeping fenced in Gorbies, Golems, Cubes? I think it is only right for the Tholian and the Pirate to get PBP's for the ships captured. Considering the expense, and lost ships, they lose while trying to capture ships, it is only fair for them to get PBP's.
hello? you already get a "free" ship - the one you captured. why hsould you get any pbps for it. then anyone should get pbps for capturing, but that is one of the big descisions you make when invading enemy territory: do i try to capture this q-tanker (maybe it has 120 fighters on board) or do i kill it off because i want the pbp and it probably is only a waste s1-hull
if i would get points for capturing i would capture any ship i stumble across - well i would try - and then recycle it afterwards, if it was crap. so i would get pbps twice - NICE!
and i really do not see the important ships a tholian or privateer could cleverly build with pbps, because i normally use them for smaller tactical ships somewhere near the front line or a ldsf when i just need one. why should i was a whole 20points on a gorbi? the priv only builds mbrs anyway... and you do not tow a captured ship all the way back to a base, do you? i would rather set up a new one fast
