This would have to be one of my top games, however, the rolling of dice on some battles can drag on for some time. This can be extended out when the ships have several improved hulls.
Has anyone created a dice roller to simulate the battles? It may be too cumbersome but as usual I am surprised that others have already thought of and found elegant solutions to my issues.
There are some online simulators (one by user Vanish I believe), and if you run it for a single battle then it will give you results. Usually, I use it to calculate % win/loss for different builds when discussing things on BGG (this is done by running it for 1000+ simulations). It would work for a single simulation, but it takes longer to type in all of the information on ship builds than it would to actually roll the dice....
