As Wedge noted, being able to make any ship into a suicide ship makes the Consortium even more sneaky, and keeps the enemy guessing.
However I would look more at the conversion to a suicide ship as being on a strategic level rather than the tactical level. After all, the modifications would be significant.
Oh yeah Wedge - could you please not mention Battlestar Galactica? Over here in Australia we've only just started Season 2, so I'd rather not know whats going to happen next, if thats cool. Thanks.
