I've been looking long and hard at the MT Ref Manual and realized that apart from a vague feeling of not really liking the feel of the starship combat system, I really don't understand how they work at all!

Now, if I should someday use a starship combat system, I'd like to know how this system actually works, so I can change it.

Some have already done so, but none of those are to my satisfaction either. So without further ado; the questions.

I've read at p.88 in the Ref Manual under the heading "Off". It mentions the hardpoint weapon listing and how it works. It says:

"ParticleAccel=000, MesonGun=000
Batt 111 111
Bear 111 111"

It then tells me that the first line (the zeroes) are listing the UCP value for the weapon - spinal mounts, bays and turrents.

Fair enough.

Now, what does the ones mean? I really don't understand the part about the batteries and the bearing. I get the idea, but not the notation. What does it mean that there is a "2" in the "Batt" line?

Any help appreciated. I'm not very good at rules.
