What is the point of designing a robot team that cheats by communicating
through sockets instead of normal messaging?  The bots will be playing a
different game than the humans.

Why don't you add some socket code in the server to give your bots more
information, while you're at it?  Or just give them 300 shields and hull,
and gonzo phasers.
