Default Jump: Plates and Bubbles and Grids - thoughts

Been a little busy, but decided it was time to show up for a bit...

Dalthor's Yacht, the Threedie, has a jump grid built into the hull. He knows that plates can work as a temporary patch if the grid is damaged. See T5.09, page 291, under "Jump Plate (repair plates)"

IMTU any ship with a grid can choose to disconnect (so to speak) the grid, and generate a jump bubble instead. Essentially, there is a cut-out switch that allows a choice between the two. I do require the selection before jump instantiation -- you can't change your mind once you start the jump process.

Does T5 allow this? I haven't found anything to support or prevent that, but thought I'd ask.

Next, WHERE ARE THE COSTS associated with Grids and Plates? I didn't have any luck finding those numbers, and somebody wanted to pick up some plates...

Many thanks!
