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.

What happened before departure from Earth.

With the command to mothball the shipyards on Phobos & Deimos above Mars while the Boadicea Merchant Company relocates assets to the Spinward Marches, came the proposal of marriage from Baroness Farin Julia Saxon-Tesla. Baron Jetson immediately accepts and outfits the Baroness with another Courier/Escort, the HMS Eightfold Way.

Only enough crewmen are hired to operate the vessel at a basic level since the vessel will synchronize Jump Drives and computers with the MS Ataraxis II.
Extensive use of droids will be pioneered with this mission.
A recruitment incentive is offered (unofficially) of chip implants for the human component of the crew to allow for greater control of automated equipment.
