Sounds very, very promising - I for one can't wait to see it as follow-up supplement to TRE. (pity that will take a bit longer... ;-] but worth the wait I think)

Has anyone here actually built there minis using parts from Mongoose? I do it all the time - did it back in the days of AoG, and never stopped. But then, actually I started long before that... when I was still playing Battletech, and tinkering with those minis... and in just about every miniature g...

Exactly. And that's why I like to convert my gun- or turret-less ships with extra guns/turrets. But of course I'd prefer if Mongoose made a bit more in this regard. Though of course you can also have too much turret... as in case of the Nova, though there it's more a case of "too big turret". BtW, m...

and should ship stats more closely resemble weapon mounts that we do see Sigh. Oh, those were the good old days, when I had B5W to play and every gun had its individual icon on the SCS, and on many ships the SCS and miniature matched (and on those where that was not the case I could make them match...

You know I could see some of the Dilgar survivors being recruited by the Drahk. They would make good Shadow servants. ...though only as long as the Shadows were around to keep them in line - serving the Drakh would not go well with their pride... Yees, I did a whole "Neo-Dilgar" BG for my campaign...

Well, I too hope we'll get a lot more civilians - but then I like to combine CtA and the RPG, and for that lots of small civilians (shuttles, small transports and non-human freighters) are more important then yet another Narn dreadnought... As for stats - sure, they will need them. From the lowliest...

In that case: remember that everything in B5 has consequences. Take this advice to heart. Nothing spoils the mood like a GM disallowing players doing things, even stupid things. Let him do it, make sure he has ample warning, and if he persists... let him deal with the consequences of his choice. Bt...

1) Why exactly are the bridge and especially the captain's quarters in the zero-g part of the ship? Because a commanding officer needs to be close at hand at all times in case of an emergency.

Actually, check the .pdf section on the main RPG site. I don't own the book personally, but I believe the Athena Strain takes place on a liner, and the pdf section has both deck plans and a deck layout. I don't know how accurate it is for all star liners, or if it's what you're looking for, but it ...

Well...

I'd buy that for a bunch of euros. Of course, that'd be a project which ou...

A Skylark plan can be found in "Signs and Portents 15", "Rise of the Lightbringer" article. And yes, both ships are canon since they were both on screen in the show (though the name "Skylark" is a fan invention). But I have written it before, Mongoose needs to do a lot more ship plans - best in real...
