Can't believe they're actually buying more of those "Little Crappy Ships".

What a terrible waste of taxpayer money.

I think the program's just running on inertia right now. There were a few ships still under construction.

Seriously, someone needs to be Court-martialed over this ongoing boondoggle.

I think keel-hauling under a very poorly maintained vessel would be more appropriate, in order to keep that naval tradition alive.

Uh Oh! It just broke down & had to be towed back to the shipyard for repairs.

Is it just me, or does every single Freedom-class seem to have its own paint scheme?
