I haven't picked mine up yet, but my FLGS - in some ways, the canonical FLGS (The Compleat Strategist in NYC) - called me today to let me know that they just got Starports and Merchant and Cruisers in. I'll be picking them up later this week. Shiny! I'm near the KofP Compleat Strategist. That means...

Has anyone in the States bought on at a FLGS? Ny store have not received either Starport or Merchants & Cruisers. I known myself and another Trav fan or two was waiting.

I finished reading this one. This is one of the most inventive concepts. I hope this type of gaming and characters are planned for other strategic games.

It's lots of movable modules connected by internal teleporters. A deck plan would require something akin to a sliding tile puzzle.... An external image would be nice, though. Hmm... past traveller experiences mean I am quite concerned. The appearance of any you-know-what in association with an AI s...

I know my FLGS manager and I would be interested.

In terms of history around 2000, keep the Twilight War. Either original Soviets or extremist Russian nationalists work.

19 Hey man, that is trippin' :D If it is 1968, what is going on with the space program? Orbital flights and Apollo space program are under way. Ground based radar and telescope are watching the skies during missions, even though it is a pretty damn big sky back then (or now). Also, you could have d...

I love the Gateway sourcebook. Except for some stats in the adventure it was not rules set heavy. It had a very good mix of.Imperial territory, pocket empires, and non-aligned. Also it has four sectors. :D

My read is those programs are stored and ran from the main computer not from the individual crewstations. What I'm referring to see having the program skills stored and ran locally. You're not dealing with a client/server situation regarding crew workstations as the stations are reconfigurable for ...

It does??? :? That's new to me. My understanding was you needed someone or something to operate a crewstation. Fire control/gunner, Astrogator, Damage control/repair can all be done with the right computer programs & equip without a person holding that position.. My read is those programs are store...

One scheme for AI onboard a starship is not the big central ship's brain, but distributed small AI modules at workstations and substations. Each unit is programmed for that assigned job. They can either keep watch or assist the crewman. That already exists in MGT without AI. It does??? :? That's ne...

The content yes. The actual printed book not I.
Excuse me as I wipe the envious drool from my keyboard.

When all your ships look sleek and angular with a red light strip oscillating back and forth to a continuous "whew-whew" sound effect and the computer insists on calling the Captain "Michael Knight," you'll remember my warnings ... The real concern is when it forgets its cover and acknowledges an o...

Let us not forget the mad, regent steward that does not recognize the rightful heir to the Imperial Throne.

(Cue in a civil war instigated by the Ancient.)
