Note: For the examples of spacecraft design posted on this blog, I mostly use 2ed. Mongoose Traveller rules, but some examples using 1ed. rules will persist until they can be upgraded.

Look at the side column for variant rules I use in my campaign.

Jenny's 30dt module, docked at Station 12, Epsilon Eridani system.

30dt Module




Home Sweet Home, "Morrison Cottage"
This fairly new module (1 year old) was purchased from the owner of Station 12, an anonymous eccentric Billionaire operating the station near the midway point between Eridanii Prime and Asteroid Ring Alpha. In exchange for the occasional small package shipment directly to the station owner's suite, Jennifer is not charged docking fees for her module. Once her equity loan is paid off, she plans to remodel the module for small scale manufacturing. This module has become her primary home since she has moved her personal effects from the town-home at down port. She hopes to rent out the condo while traveling to the outer system and other systems for business. A droid, "George", is kept on staff at the module to provide valet and cooking services while she is in port, and otherwise George provides routine maintenance on the module and security services. Jenny also allows her droid to participate in self education projects while she is away.

Jennifer has recently retired from the planetary COACC of Eridanii-Prime. After a year of preparation, she has just moved to the outer system to set up a transport business. She has a new place to live, a new 10 ton launch to begin her spacecraft fleet, and a few toys all paid for. Through creative financing and to get out from system-binding financial entanglements, she has paid everything off by taking out an equity loan. These payments are starting to get worrisome to her since the business is still not up and running yet, and those monthly payments are steep. You'll never find a more motivated pilot for the small package trade than Jenny Morrison.....

This starship is set up for J-2 operations, but can be flown without the external load for J-4 or reduced external load for J-3 with loads requiring their own supply of system power. J-1 operations are also possible, but will require a self-powered payload module (900dt) and a re-configuring of on-board cargo docking clamp area.

Spacecraft design, Mongoose 2ed. + house rules, Hull.

For my Traveller campaigns, the primary rules currently in use are from High Guard in Mongoose Traveller second edition. These rules are great for fleshing out a Traveller universe where gravity manipulation has been fully developed. However, what if the focus on adventure was to a lower technology boondocks where replacement and repair of high-tech items is difficult?

I wanted to develop a campaign similar in flavor to 2300AD, Hostile (see Cepheus Engine, et al.), High Colonies, Orbital, and Serenity/Firefly with a dash of Cowboy Bebop; any reliable gravitic artifacts beside basic lifter/inertial gravity compensators will be rare. The rules as written (RAW) do not much cover spacecraft design for pre-gravitic craft, so with a nod toward Traveller T5 (always mined for style, mechanics, etc., however Mark Miller is wrong on the goofy lettered drives and such...), and some consulting with the old Traveller New Era "Fire, Fusion, & Steel", I here present some rules for a more gritty, somewhat realistic yet easy to abstract away from if necessary to the flow of play. I will put this in a side-bar eventually and this may go through some edits as I figure this out.


Chassis of vessel:

Configuration is the first consideration of design, and High Guard, 2ed. has expanded this somewhat, but I going full T5 with a nod to 2300AD on this. The vessel can be configured as follows (each category gives name followed by limitations and comment):

C Cluster [1G limit, Atm=no, Skim=no, Land=no, An accumulation of compartments.]
     Cost=0.01Mcr./dt.

B Braced [3G limit, Atm=no, Skim=no, Land=no, A cluster braced for higher acceleration.]
     Cost=0.02Mcr./dt.

U Unstreamlined [9G limit, Atm=no, Skim=yes, Land=no (yes if Atm=0-1), an enclosure whose protrusions produce drag.] For vessels under 100dt in size, and if the vessel is to be able to land on a surface with Atm 0-1, it will require that a landing suspension be specified.
     Additional requirements=(if installed) 10% hull volume, 1.0Mcr./dt, Atm=N/A.
     Cost=0.02Mcr./dt.

S Streamlined [9G limit, Atm=yes, Skim=yes, Land=yes, an enclosure with cowlings and fairings to decrease drag.] Note that Aerofins can be added to this configuration per the standard rules with the stated benefits and costs.
     Additional Requirements=(if installed) 5% hull volume, 0.1Mcr./dt, Atm=DM+2.
     Cost=0.03Mcr./dt.

A Airframe (winged streamlined) [9G limit, Atm=yes, Skim=yes, Land=yes, a winged enclosure with better performance in atmosphere.] This configuration is purposely designed with built-in Aerofins and control surfaces to provide lift in atmosphere.
     Additional Requirements=5% hull volume, 0.1Mcr./dt, Atm=DM+2*.
     Cost=0.04Mcr./dt.

L Lifting body (airframe) [9G limit, Atm=yes, Skim=yes, Land=yes, an enclosure with lifting surfaces with better performance in atmosphere.] This configuration is purposely designed with built-in Aerofins and control surfaces to provide lift in atmosphere. Typically used with non-gravitic powered vessels.
     Additional Requirements=10% hull volume, 0.1Mcr./dt, Atm=DM+3*.
     Cost=0.04Mcr./dt.

H Hybrid Lifting body [9G limit, Atm=yes, Skim=yes, Land=yes, an enclosure where the body of the vessel is the lifting surface with highest speed performance in atmosphere.] This configuration is a purposely designed lifting body with variable control surfaces to provide lift in atmosphere. Typically used with non-gravitic powered vessels.
     Additional Requirements=10% hull volume, 0.1Mcr./dt, Atm=DM+4*.
     Cost=0.05Mcr./dt.

*Other conditions apply in landing times and lift-off times (q.v.)


Special Note for Non-gravitic Hulls:
     If a hull is built without gravitic lifters and inertial compensators, the basic ship system power requirements are reduced to 5% of hull volume in energy points (EP).

100dt Shuttle short range (2300ad style)

This vessel is designed with some house rule modifications to Mongoose High Guard second edition. I was in the process of retrofitting some of the concepts from Mongoose's 2300AD to the new second edition rules until I realized that Mongoose will be reissuing 2300AD later this year, so further designs of lower tech. spacecraft may wait until I take a look at the book (hopefully it will be compatible with Tr2ed.).

100dt Shuttle, Cargo*

*Note: The 100dt & 90dt Standard Cargo Shuttles are exactly like the 95dt Cargo Shuttle shown above except proportionally larger or smaller. This vessel is indistinguishable from the newer shuttles which have much longer range. Very commonly encountered at spaceports and the like. Many used ships of this type are available for sale or lease. This vessel can easily be converted into a tanker shuttle by flooding the cargo area with L-Hyd. (unpurified).
