Saucer Separation creates two vessels each with a Scale one lower than the base starship. Can each component then support small craft by the usual rules?
Example: A Galaxy-class (Scale 6) can support 5 points of small craft when the saucer is joined. When it separates, each of the two components can support 4 points of small craft, for a total of 8 points of small craft. If the Galaxy-class selected Extensive Shuttlebays, both of these values (joined and separated) are doubled. Even more odd is that it can somehow carry 4 runabouts when separated (2 per section) but only two when joined.
By the wording of the Saucer Separation, since both sections have all Talents, a ship with Saucer Separation can also magically clone a Captain’s Yacht too.
