Re: Solomani Confederation (Military)

Solomani Confederation: Astrography of the Rim Paragraph 1. It's in the neighbourhood. 2. The Rim Main - line of conflict, likely. 3. Probably, but again, I think economics in Traveller is likely wrong. 4. The Rimward Gap - convenient. 5. The Dingir Sparse - I'm not sure how it complicates naval op...

Re: Ship Design Philosophy

Starships: Lost in Space and Lifeboats 60. It is clear that in this case, having a low acceleration manoeuvre drive is far preferable to any souped up rocket. 61. A mitigating factor would be that if they don't need to refuel (before the monoshotter is basically burned out), is they aren't likely t...

Re: Ship Design Philosophy

Starships: Lost in Space and Lifeboats 50. Oops, forgot I deefficiencized energy requirement for monoshotters. 51. That means you need thirty nine power points for three hundred parsec tonnes. 52.

Re: Vacc suits for free?

Bring your own device (BYOD /ˌbiː waɪ oʊ ˈdiː/[1])—also called bring your own technology (BYOT), bring your own phone (BYOP), and bring your own personal computer (BYOPC)—refers to being allowed to use one's personally owned device, rather than being required to use an officially provided device.

Re: Ship Design Philosophy

Starships: Lost in Space and Lifeboats 20. One option would be having the drive in the ship's locker, and having two fifty tonne modular cutters. 21. Attach the two cutters together as catamarans, install the monoshot jump drive in one, pop out the module and replace it with a thirty tonne fuel tan...
