Re: Airlocks and Landing Gear

That approach works if you treat the design as the whole being greater than the sum of of its parts.

Breaks when you deconstruct it, like giving one hundred and ten percent.

Re: Airlocks and Landing Gear

Tea Five has some options on landing gear; a tail sitter might have it integrated in it's rear fins, assuming it had any. Previously, I think the first airlock was free, and part of the bridge overhead, together with the ship's locker. I don't think that page twenty two mentions that either the volu...

Re: Is there a comprehensive 2nd ed Errata?

If it's the same interstellar lines, I'd see if I could get a discount for a multi ticket package.

It may be more of an issue of time than space, in terms of cost, not to mention that starship that can leapfrog five parsecs is inherently more expensive per tonne than a monojumper.
