Don't need a low berth.

Re: Is genetic material universal?

All life on Earth uses nucleic acids to transmit information. Nucleic acids are long chains of individual units called nucleotides. When chained together, they create molecules known as deoxyribonucleic acid, DNA, or ribonucleic acid, RNA. Those molecules carry information through generations of a s...

Re: Open Spacecraft Flown With Vacc Suit?

Two issues with this..1) solar flares, and 2) micro-meteoroid impacts. Both can easily be dealt with by high tech-based early warning systems and knowledge of the local star system.

Re: Hazards of frontier refuelling

Ships taking part in gas giant skimming will also need to take into account the radiation in said gas giant's magnetic field. However, this isn't that difficult to do, as an article on the Popular Science website discusses (see following link). www.popsci.com/how-juno-spacecraft-will-survive-jupiter...

Re: Advise to give a friend. Please

Once the weapon's capabilities are noted by the wielder's enemies, they'll figure out someway of getting past them. Taking at look at the weapon's individual effects, how about an ambush of about 30 goblinoids wielding heavy crossbows and backed up by 6-10 evil spellcasters? Flight: negated by cross...

In that case, welcome back! You might be mixing point defense with distributed arrays in your memory. that's the only component with a minimum ship size that comes to mind.
Thank you! And regarding my mixing in arrays, quite likely.

Re: Point Defence Battery Limitations

There isn't any ship size limit for Point Defence Batteries. Most stuff doesn't have any hull size limit, if you can fit it on the existing hull go ahead. Distributed Arrays which require a lot of surface area on the hull are limited to ships of 5,000 or more tons. Thank you for your connfirmation....

Never seen such a limitation on Point Defense Battery, just that it requires a hard point.
Thanks for the reply. I wasn't sure if the limitation was part of some past errata. Sounds like I just didn't remember correctly. Good!

Point Defence Battery Limitations

Are Point Defence Batteries limited to 3000+ ton ships only?

I seem to recall such a limitation but looking at HG 2e on page 33 (pg 34 in my copy of the pdf file), I don't see it. Is this limitation stated somewhere else or am I just misremembering?

Re: Ship repairs - do many hands make light work?

To gain a benefit from extra hands the helpers would have to be qualified to do the job. If that is the case then at minimum the person rolling the skill check would receive a Boon. If a Traveller has help, such as good tools, competent aids or other beneficial circumstances, he receives a Boon. CR...

Jeff,

No apologies needed. You made all the right decisions. The magazine will persevere and come out next when you are able to do so.

Work on your family first. It's far more important.

Take care.
Amen to this.

I don’t have the book but doesn’t the Theeve Cluster supplement discuss black market weapons/upgrades/exotic toys?

If not that would be a cool Referee’s Briefing.

Almost makes you wonder there wouldn't be very harsh penalties for civilian craft to be sporting PAs considering how nasty they are. I'm sure they have a unique signature that screams "Shoot me'.

Re: Particle beam radiation damage

And don't forget that radiation is the gift that keeps on giving. Not much point in boarding a ship that's heavily irradiated by multiple PA hits. That radiation doesn't just go away instantly. It keeps spreading its effects to anyone who get close enough to its radiating source.
