- "A ship at sea is its own world. To be the captain of a ship is to be the unquestionable ruler of that world and requires all of the leadership skills of a prince or minister."
– Col. Corazon Santiago, "Leadership and the Sea"
The slow moving foils and transports developed under Doctrine: Flexibility provided an adequate early naval force. However, materials and manufacturing advances resulting from Industrial Automation make possible new classes of powerful ships developed as part of Doctrine: Initiative, which stresses the importance of global naval superiority.
