Hey guys! I'm lurking your game. I'll make comments if that's OK. If you'd rather I stay in the shadows, just let me know.
Even with the hyperdrive sled, the options available for interceptors at CL 6 are a bit scary. Very low HP, very weak weapons. That could be fun to RP, but it could also be dangerous. I'm not sure you want to go there, but you may want to consider letting players start with a higher CL ship (maybe 7 or even 8) with one or more downgrades: maybe the droid socket is non functional, maybe one of the weapons systems was removed, maybe a special debilitating template.
Just a thought.
