Notes (2018)[edit]

  1. EXTERNAL LINK: Trav Spacecraft Design SRD
  2. EXTERNAL LINK: How do you lock your ship? Includes MWM response.
  3. EXTERNAL LINK: I wonder if Flex Seal works on Starships?
  4. EXTERNAL LINK: How Long Do Starships Last?
  5. EXTERNAL LINK: A bit of an aesthetics question... In Traveller and other SF, what do you think makes a ship design iconic?
  6. EXTERNAL LINK: "There's no stealth in space"
  7. EXTERNAL LINK: On a recent post I offered my view that in reference to the standardized ship types, "type" refers to the ship's general layout and "class" is how it manifests at specific tech levels.
  8. EXTERNAL LINK: Every class of starship has a Craft Type Code assigned to them.
  9. EXTERNAL LINK: What is the difference between type and class in starship schemes used for Traveller?

Update (2017)[edit]

Probably, this page will need some tweaking to bring it up to date. Ship missions in particular have settled a bit into their final categories with T5.

Yes. Agreed. No one has taken on the project yet though.
