DEAR LORD, this thing is fanfiction-y. It doesn't even try to hide it. I'm deleting at least the made-up excerpt from the made-up book.
In fact, I'm going to add a protest to the whole way the ship things have been written. This is an encyclopedia, not a collaborative strategy guide -- right now instead of trying to give objective information on the stats for each ship they're riddled with personal opinions about how well ships work, which encourages a very slangy, subjective style. I vote that we start overhauling the ship guides to actually focus on information and move the little piloting tips and ship-to-ship comparisons and discussions of how cool ships are to separate sections, if we have to keep them, or better yet tell people to take that sort of thing to the forums.
