What DO I Know About Datafiles? One of Logan’s Playmates (Omega Red)

May still tweak a few things, especially if I end up with

What Do I Know About Datafiles? Chuck’s Big Brother (AKA Juggernaut)

This is the Juggernaut datafile that I threw together the other afternoon on the Margaret Weis Production forums.  I polished it up a bit, and I figured I’d throw this up on the old blog just for the heck of it.
