How did Steel Song ships launch? A long long time ago, Steel Song definitely did have real ships. This was back in the exodus, where Steel Song were surprisingly quite powerful (for a clan). As with all clans, there was a supreme ruler, who was born into the role (A bit like 20th century monarchs). It just so happened that the Steel Song ruler of the time, Glurk XVII, aka Glurk the Stupid decided that it was very expensive to launch heavy starships into space. Glurk made a deal with an honorable syndicate (De Valtos) which went something like this:
Glurk the Stupid (GtS): "I'd like to discuss with you the possibility that we could rely on your ships to carry our ships into space so that we can save on fuel stuffs" De Valtos Industry Liaison (DeVIL): "Sure, we'd like to help you but your ships are very heavy, and we'd have to charge you for the sky-lifting. Maybe we could come up with something that is mutually beneficial" GtS: "Sure, what do you have in mind?" DeVIL: "Weeell, how about if you signed over all of your current ships, and we manufactured brand new starships for you in an incredibly light-weight and quick-to-manufacture material. We'd get compensation from recyclng your ships, and you'd get a brand new fleet" GtS: "Wow, that sounds great."
And thus, the De Valtos Sky Lift treaty was established. Steel Song ships were guaranteed transport from surface to space (and back again) in return trading in all of their old heavy outdated ships. Steel Song also benefited from a brand new, rapid-deployment fleet:
A win win really.

I'm killing every single De Valtos I see, I'll kill them all, and it won't make a difference because they have an infinite amount of ships, and I'll die eventually because I'm not the best at the game, but I'll destroy them, and destroy them, until I'm dead, then I'll get another captain to destroy them more, and eventually once that captain's greatest of ancestors finally destroys the last ship he can before getting bored of the De Valtos, HE'LL DESTROY MORE FOR THE CONFETTI OF HIS RETIREMENT PARTY, THEN GET BORED OF NOT DOING ANYTHING AND GO DESTROY MORE!
Or I'll join Javat.
There you go, Resistor. Now people won't mistake us!
