So I no longer know what you're trying to say.
You wrote about how Spaceships fails to support the combat paradigm that motivates the Starhawk fighter existing.

There are plenty of ship writeups that, like the Starhawk, seem to belong to paradigms that the rules don't support or make any sort of effort to support.

My assertion is that Spaceships comprehensively fails to provide any kind of support for dealing with the whole alternate paradigms idea that people involved in writing the books, posters on the forum, and seemingly you in particular want it to.

Then you threw a dismissal at me about how I apparently hate Spaceships (which is somewhat true, but for completely different reasons) and I responded to that.
I don't know any 3e, so there is no chance that I am talking about 3e rules by accident.
