        Actually, I have anohter question..would the various factions within the
feds and the Jions and the jupiter fleet and all that be considered as
something akin to private factions? also, since I am not really up to
snuff on the tech part, did these different factions develop exclusive use
stuff, aside from the obvious MA's and prototypes?
