1. Columbia class used 2 landing bays (5000t each for all small craft). No
additional crew or resources are needed. These bays can be used for cargo if

2. Meson spinal has been supstituted for Dual Turbo Laser spinal mount.

3. Fuel Home Rules:
Fuel Purification on battlestars can choose to produce Superfuel (double jump
fuel). The cost of the Purification system is doubled. Time to purify fuel is
doubled. Purification System Maintenance is doubled. Crew is doubled.
(1062t, 22 crew, 10,612.5Mcr)

4. Dual Spinal Mount Home Rules:
A Dual Spinal Mount Weapons Carriage has been integrated into the hull.
- The carriage is the size of 2 spinal mounts but requires the appropriate
amount of hardpoints (aka structural supports) connected to the ship hull and
the weapons.
- Only 1 spinal mount can be fired in a turn but they can alternate.
- Each spinal mount has a seperate crew.
- Energy Points are only provided to fire 1 at a time in this design.
- The cost is equivalent to 1/2 of an enclosed spinal mount weapon.
- Damage against the spinal mounts should be randomly rolled between
carriage, weapon 1 and weapon 2.
- Firing Both near simultaneously: (where there is a will, there is a way)
-          Should energy be diverted to fire both, a roll must be made on the
internal ship damage table. This is a result of the structural damage to the ship.

A referee can return to core rule ideology by converting the 2nd spinal mount
and carriage to resources (3000t cargo, 11 crew, 20 hardpoints, 200Mcr).
