I've always loved the starship deck plans for Traveller. My first exposure was to those included with the Snapshot game. To be able to tie our evening's adventure to a map added so much to my gaming experience. It was a real boost to the whole "theater of the mind" thing. I soon purchased GDW's Traders and Gunboats and High Guard and later found Azhanti High Lightning and Nic Week's plan for the Type H Hunter in White Dwarf #70. Those were real eye openers and inspiration which led me to design my own starships off and on for the next 30+ years.
But you can't always have a deck plan for everything. My own gaming experiences have been dampened by the need to stop and research this type of ship or that type of building. I was familiar with the concept of geomorphs from my D&D gaming. When I came across Dyson Logos' beautiful Moleskine geomorphs and Dave's Mapper website, it was enough inspiration for me to grab my own sketchbook and start drawing. Finally, three years later, I've got enough work cleaned up and illustrated to share with everyone. It is my hope that other gamers will find enough here to save them time, keep their games moving, and inspire their own creations. Happy Travelling!

What is a Geomorph?
Geomorphs are deck plan tiles designed such that any number of tiles can be combined in multiple ways to create large, interconnected deck plans. This book is a series of geomorph tiles with a science fiction theme. These geomorphs are not intended as a replacement for actual, well thought out ship designs, but rather as a referee time saving tool.
Movie Set: Think of the geomorphs as sets in a movie. You don't have to have a layout to the entire ship, just the areas where the action takes place. Remove or replace any geomorphs that don't make sense. Place them in a way that make sense to you.
Standards and Assumptions
Geomorphs are based on a 5' x 5' grid. Where mentioned, tonnage refers to displacement volume, not weight. One displacement ton (referred to as ton or dton) is equal to a volume 5' wide x 10' long x 10' high. Unless noted otherwise, the standard geomorph is one deck high.
