Missiles are *WAY* overpowered for enemies right now. It's far too easy to go from being decently well-off with a couple of ship upgrades to dead in a single encounter because the enemy ship has 2 shields and an infinite supply of missiles. If I don't have enough missiles to keep pounding their weap...
