What is Point Value?

The example ship control sheet in Example A4.01 has a PV:37 on it and the explanation says that it means that the ship has a Point Value of 37, but Sections A3, A4, A5 and H1.07 don't mention a Point Value, so what is it?

Ahhhh crap. I can't believe we are two revisions into SSF and we didn't remove that... it's a holdover from ULTRA, which is a holdover from GSF, which is a holdover from CLASSIC STARFIRE.

That was the "value" of the ship for the scenarios in CLASSIC STARFIRE. There have been several articles over the years trying to explain how to calculate PV, but honestly we don't use it anymore. It will go away in the next version (I just made the modification myself).

IIRC, PV was based on the cost of a unit ( can't get at my copies of 3rd/3rdR to give a more detailed answer)
Charles Rosenberg.

Alexei Timoshenko is the name of my protagonist in the fanfics, although I wish it could have been me.
