Crewman: "Captain! Two Yamato class battleships and six Tong class cruisers are approaching fast, they are not responding to our hails. I wonder who it is sir?

I think the real problem is fast pickets e-burning right into my 3 capital 8 cruiser / carrier death stack and thinking its a completely legitimate and good idea to ask me to turn on my transponder.

Like, what did they expect?

"Yes, I will totally turn on my transponder, mister puny weak fleet."

if you don’t fight them, then it will be a transponder off penalty of -3, rather than “oh *** the unidentified Yamato class battleship just fired on us, it’s a god dammned Jap invasion!”

Yeah, "annoy player into compliance" strategy in action. Definitely could live without that.
