I'm trying to explode a spaceship into a couple of hundred pieces. Will I have to name every surface and give it it's own trajectory in layout or is there a simpler method?

You can check a pluging named C4 at this URL:

its free, and I played with it. Seems to work fine.
Good luck

Or you can upgrade to LW8 and take advantage of the Hardbody dynamics! ;)

You can see an example of the Hardbody Dynamics function that nlightuk mentioned here (http://www.newtek.com/products/lightwave/product/8/features.php#HardBodyDynamics) and here (ftp://ftp.newtek.com/multimedia/LW8Demos/HardFx_001.avi).
