// When ships are rendered unusable for continued occupancy, there is a spectrum of outcomes, from “oh systems and transponders reset. There she is again.”, to crew forced to abandon ship but the hull recoverable and refittabble, to “oh dear the wreck fell in a black hole and is irrecoverable”.
I appreciate the sentiment of going through bird names but we still have lots of raptors to get through; Peregrine, Kestrel, Merlin, Owl, Sparrowhawk, Gyrfalcon, Kite, Harrier, Buzzard, Vulture, Condor, Osprey, and one could make a case for using Raptor, Accipiter or Strix. 🙂
There is dfinitely a learning curve for fighters and carriers. I don’t mind others enjoying the challenge but it does not greatly appeal to me.
