Description[edit]

Welcome aboard the King Richard, pride of the PEL fleet. After you pass through the security checks at the star port, you exit your shuttle and meet your steward. The friendly faces of the crew members only add to the excitement as you realise that you are aboard the most luxurious vessel in Imperial space.

Action Aboard contains the discussion and descriptions of many interesting people who will be found aboard the ship, and a very extensive list of possible situations in which the vessel may find itself. these are given to maximize the variability in which referees might make use of the liner. Some of these will be fleshed out completely, while others will only be discussed in outline form, permitting referees to personalize these actions.
