I spent Saturday evening and Sunday morning re-learning about matrices. I did some rudimentary analysis and modeling on the price points for Stars without Number starships. As a bonus I relearned a bit about Eigenvectors and Eigenvalues. And did some reading on Principal Component Analysis. If anyone is better versed at this, and would like to drop me a line, I’d love some further help.
Stripped of a spike-drive, the Owl-class Sentinel remains a versatile system ship or a compliment to a Carrier. With extended stores, its crew can spend longer in space. Combining its extended stores and emission dampers, the Owl can observe a hardened system entry-point without tipping its hand. If it chooses to break cover, its Fractal Impact Charge brings a dangerous punch.
