Re: Star Ship Polaris

Re the sails and the fletchings, it's worth nothing that Polaris was an exploration vessel in its earlier days and the ship was likely making jumps out into uncharted space, so accuracy was probably a bigger concern than for ships that are travelling in well-charted and traveled space, so maybe those "sail" systems are more common for vessels of that function.
