"why not develop modularity for the resource savings instead of having to build more ships?"

Then by your logic EVERYBODY should have modular ships in the REAL universe.

No, I was righ ...

That works for the standard universe, but why not develop modularity for the resource savings instead of having to build more ships? They live in a resource poor region, so why not decide to make the ...

I don't see the new Romulan ships that far out of bounds for a Paravian based warp gain.

While the new ships were certainly influenced by the Klingons, the modular concept is one of the hallmarks ...

I thought he said he was writing it in pencil next year. Shocked
Then they'd have to transcribe it to ink. Embarassed
From there it would have to be typed onto a computer. Razz

Going smaller than 1/4 scale might make the model look far too odd next to the normal ships that are supposed to dock inside it.

Going larger than 1/4 scale would make measuring ranges odd, as by ...

I've never seen a demo program that could match what people could make simply working at a real job. Some sound close to minimum wage, but they tend to have strings attached, and rarely account for t ...

Jean's new toy looks rather interesting for a Fralli ship.

Are there any plans to put out an SFB SSD for the ship for more target practice for exciting SFB action?

GURPS light is probably one of the nicest ways to try out an RPG I've seen.

You get all of the core game rules and mechanics, and get to decide how well they fit for your group, without having to ...

That got me thinking about the last Traveller character I created. The history rolls were so far out there I decided the most appropriate name was Kirk T Jameson.

History rolls can be a fun tool ...

I can't tell whether you are saying Traveller has levels or not. Traveller does not do levels in any way. It is a pure skill based system, modified by attributes. Traveller has no levels.
My fault fo ...

I prefer GURPS. While it has a reputation for being an engineer's rule system, it isn't that difficult, especially with the more streamlined 4th edition.

It carries the advantage of being skill ...

I've always enjoy playing Klingons with the weak rear shields, as it makes them more of a challenge.

That issue, though, didn't really exist by the time of the General War. The B refit started Y1 ...

Which would fit, but would also mean most of the ships would qualify for the rule.

Looking at the two I noted, the Klingon D7B is 30 fore and 22 everywhere else, and the Federation CA is 30 fore, ...

That becomes a GM's call, then. When I run GURPS, I make sure people know what is allowed or not. I had one player who brouht in a combat knife using other GURPS books for the tech to our Prime Dire ...
