Default Re: [Spaceships] Paying more for better system?

I think there is room in the design system for more advanced components, even at TL8 or TL9. A TL covers a long time, and a design that is state of the art in 2020 is not going to be state of the art in 2050.

Fine and Very Fine components help smooth the transition between TLs: a TL9 Fine (efficient) fusion torch doesn't have nearly the performance of a TL 10 fusion torch, but it begins to bridge the gap.
