Bah, too many good choices. Initially picked 10, so I had to make some hard choices.
Tunneler: A lot of interesting potential here on both sides. I don't think it needs to transport any other ship types. I think the limitation will hit the AI hard too, since we often can keep any AI ships out of our systems. But not always.
Powerslave: Personal favorite. It should attrition what it eats though, just so it can't get powered up and stay at max forever.
Cleanser: So I have a slight soft-spot for Paladins. Mainly killing them, but that's a story for another time. Anyway, thematically very interesting and the reason I picked it. I'd like to see it bring a buff or minor repair to the table for when no zombies are present.
Vengence Fighter: Seems really interesting on either side. Their deaths can save you in a bad situation, especially if you can just keep cranking them out (MRD maybe)...but man could a wave of them hurt.
Hydra Flame Thrower: I like the guy who suggested this one. Trustworthy fellow.
Sniper Laser Pod: Can't help it, I really want to use them to as a "click-to-remove target" ship. Seems a really good surgical answer to a lot of problems.
EW Starship: Pretty interesting, I'd probably go for a negative attack boost on the enemy. It could just apply a damage reduction to allied ships near it (negative attack boost for all incoming dmg on them). But its a starship, and just less interesting than some of the other ships. Just a touch too passive for my taste.
Mass TP Ship: Good idea, needs a little fleshing out. I can see potential, but I think it's one of those ships players would use a ton better than the AI, and there were other picks that would be really strong on both sides.
Zenith Battle Ship: Potential to be nasty, but a little bland, and I'm not sure how important FF-immunity is on something that is slow and doesn't target structures much. Just not enough mobile units with shields really.
PCJ: This submitter is on a roll, but he got beat out by other more interesting stuff. Better luck next time.
