Re: Ship Design Philosophy

That's always been the distinctive difference between Imperial and Rebel fighters; Vader's was probably retconned to explain how he managed to get away from Yavin. That and shields.

Star Wars is basically fantasy, but I still find the Hey Wing too small for what it's supposed to be capable of.

Re: Crew requirement figures (High Guard rules vs. designs)

Ironically, in large engine compartments you can reduce the numbers of engineers.

For smaller starships, the threshold seems to be thirty five tonnes, which you could give some leeway: below that, the engines probably could look after themselves in the short term.

Re: Solomani Confederation (Military)

I don't disagree with that, I'm just trying to rationalize the facts as presented.

Defensive leagues, something that wouldn't be permitted in the Imperium, do have the resources to build up sizable numbers, in rather more sizable volumes.

Re: Crew requirement figures (High Guard rules vs. designs)

The real issue is fatigue, proper maintenance, and keeping an eye on that everything is running correctly, whether instruments or human resources. In the short term, you can short change crew requirements with little or no penalty; medium term someone is going to have to do overtime to catch up, and...

Re: Sanak: Inurin System

Technological level eight is fusion capable, so they have enough energy; I'd say that what's vital is a manufacturing base to build and maintain those power plants. Besides telephone sanitizers and hairdressers, you'd have to hope that the other two thirds of the colonists were specifically picked f...

Re: Hazards of frontier refuelling

If you want to succeed you should strike out on new paths, rather than travel the worn paths of accepted success.

It's why formulas have brackets, and are clear about addition/subtraction and multiplication/division.
