I was thinking of how often ships can escape your clutches, and then a long dawn out hunt begins. Why not make tracking beacons that you can put on ships and view their locations on the map. Of course, there would have to be a service or skill that would clear your ship of the beacon if you had one put on you, but its an idea. Also, Why not make a ship tha is pretty much a huge bomb with engines that you could ram into another ship and detonate for a few thousand points of damage...of course the pilot would autopod himself. I thought that frigates could make a comeback and stand a chance to larger vessels if you made a weapon system for them that multiplied in strength and range, depending on how many frigates were using the weapon together. So if you have one frigate it has 10km range for 100 damage, or 5 frigates get 50km range for 500 damage...just en example. This way a swarm of frigates could blow away much larger enemy vessels with the collective power of their array of focused weapons.
