With automatic delivery I hadn't noticed that I now had the March/April and May/June issues already on my iPhone!
I seem to remember reading a Larry Niven short story about the start of the wars. It was about a human exploration ship encountered by the Kzinti. The Kzinti were going to destroy the unarmed ship and the crew, and Earth in general, were pacifists. One was not as pacifistic and used the ships photon drive to destroy the Kzinti ship. This was sometime in the mid to late '70s.
