Re: Prime Directive...

It isn't likely to be possible to design a Star Fleet Universe starship using the standard Traveller rules, and I'm pretty sure that ADB responded to this effect on one of the earlier PD Traveller threads. There are very different concepts. An SFU ship actually carries a very small number of weapons...

Re: Prime Directive...

It's worth browsing one or other of the existing PD products - D20 or GURPS just to see what they contain in this regard. There's a lot of stuff that doesn't get re-written from PD product line to product line. All the SFU "fluff" remains the same, the only thing unique to each PD product line are t...

Re: Prime Directive...

There's a text thumbnail sketch of various ships in each of the PD products. Only a paragraph or so, but enough to give an overview of the ship and function. There are published resources on the ADB site which lists all the Federation ship names. You wouldn't find deckplans or the ship displays used...

Re: Primeval returns

I thought the Canadian series had already been cancelled? Lasted until the end of season one, and then the plug got pulled on it.

Re: T5 so when is it going to be on sale

If you want to discuss the latest design innovations in Honda cars, then the best place to talk about them would obviously be somewhere like your local Ford dealership.

It would be really defensive of Ford if they wondered why you didn't go to a Honda showroom.

Re: Prime Directive...

If there is an adventure in the Traveller PD book, I expect to see a deckplan, too. That's just the way it is. At the very least there needs to be an example ship being built in the ship building chapter (showing deckplans of it in the process). There will be a ship building chapter, right? :) I'm ...

Re: Prime Directive...

I don't remember there being deck plans in the original LBBs. They came later, with the publication of suppelments and adventures.

Re: Prime Directive...

I really don't understand why ADB have developed this obsession with deck plans to the extent that it delays a publication. Why can't they put out Traveller PD, and THEN publish a supplement with deck plans for those who really want them? That way the whole deck plan issue doesn't keep dragging out ...

Re: Prime Directive...

Our opening book of the series has the Prime Trader in it (a ship that could easily be crewed by a bunch of retired people off to seek their fortunes) -- and most folks seem to want The Ship from Their Favorite Empire. That's part of the problem. Some of these empires don't even have the basic ship...

Re: Prime Directive...

I'm not too sure where ADB picked up the idea that deck plans were required. Nobody in their right mind is going to want to know every location on a Connie or a D7 - or any other ship - when it comes to roleplaying. And we were never supplied with detailed deckplans when watching the source TV shows...

Re: Future Traveller - Testing the Waters

Yeah, 15mm. There are hundreds of tie-in offerings in 15mm, it is THE sci-fi scale, and has had a massive resurgence over the last few years.

Re: Map Packs

Seems a waste of time as a pdf map pack. I'm not going to print it myself from a pdf, so simply wouldn't buy the product at all in that format.

Re: Official / Unofficial Chthonian Stars for Mongoose Trave

Wrote to Wildfire last month asking them about availability of a print of POD copy. As yet they haven't bothered to answer. I guess it's time to give up on Wildfire for good.

Re: Frigate & Battle Frigate Models

That's how the ADB ships are cast, and they sometimes distort. Separate pieces usually produce better/cleaner castings.
