Default The Free Trader Benefit

Okay, I know the CT basic text like the back of my hand: First benefit gives you the ship with a 40 year mortgage; subsequent benefits get you 10 years of the mortgage paid off.

Now, supposing you roll the benefit twice. That's 10 years your ship's been in service. Wouldn't it be armed? Wouldn't the computer's program set be more robust? I don't see a ship surviving ten years of service, OTU or otherwise without packing some kind of heat.

Those ten years of payments add up to eighteen and a half million credits and change.

Do you think it would be reasonable to allow a PC to cash some of that in for ship's weapons and programming?

For that matter, if you totaled up the down payment and those ten years payments and deliver them as cash, you get just short of 26mcr. Might it be reasonable to allow that as an architect's fee & down payment on a better ship?

How have you-all handled this? Speaking as a longtime solitaire player and GM who has occasionally had RL players, but not nearly enough to run into this problem short of just giving them a brace of pulse lasers...

I await all agog.
