As good as the Chiron! You guys keep on producing ships that I love. :D

While I already like these ships a lot...They would be so much more useful for me if you added a couple of pages converting them to Mongoose 2300AD and adding a small write to add them to that setting.

I'd pay a buck or two extra to have them done in a way suitable for 2300AD.

Hmm... We have pondered some sort of conversion document for other versions...
Maybe we'll do a three page document at some point, all three ships with the alternated stats...
However, isn't 2300 very different in ship design? Most of our ideas on the above were for T5... so how easily would it convert?

A lot of the ship components are the same, but you would have to replace the jump drive and weapon systems in particular. Then there's the artificial gravity need, would end up needing new deckplans...

With these smaller ships there is no need to worry about artificial gravity. 2300AD canon ships like the Thorez (200 dTon) [pgs. 228-230, 2300AD] make no use of artificial gravity. In the game's rules you just get a lower crew comfort rating, while in the setting universe I'd assume there would be exercise equipment on board and pharmaceuticals to prevent bone and muscle loss. Perhaps they'd even have DNA modifications similar to the Micro-G Space Adaptation [pg. 125, 2300AD].

To convert to 2300AD the weapons and FTL drive will need to be switched as previously mentioned. Also some reduction of the on board fuel may be needed as the 2300AD stutterwarp drive only requires power, not hydrogen. It may be possible to swap out the jump drive and drive fuel directly for a stutterwarp drive and an improved power plant. Those vessels with the ability to land and take off from a planet will need to retain enough fuel to do this.

I'll try to convert the first three and see what happens, but I'm not too familiar with the Mongoose system yet. If it turns out I'll post something. My comment was more in relation to upcoming products and their usefulness to me and other 2300AD fans.

We'll have a look in regards to the Chiron. That would be the simplest to do, as Garuda is modular and the Aegis has its miniature hangars, making them vaguely complex.
We would ask however that you don't post stats regarding these three ships, or any of their variants or sub craft. If you do really want to have a go, you are welcome to PM me though.
We do value your suggestions, and will definitely look into it.

We've just updated the Garuda with a brand new page, including the stats for two modules never included before! It's a free download for anyone who has already purchased the book. Get it here:

I picked up the pdf via DriveThruRPG and I have a quick question - I was looking through the modules section and noticed that there was no tonnage set aside for the concept of modularity (i.e. the ship itself does not lose any space in regards to having modules, and the modules themselves take up no space aside from the normal equipment tonnage).

Wouldn't/shouldn't there be some tonnage lost in order to accommodate modules?

Nope, you just pay extra to designate a % of the hull as modular. No tonnage is needed, though I can see your point.

Yeah, the rules don't cover that issue. I was just curious.
