From launches to liners, from system defense boats to dreadnoughts, a starfaring campaign requires ships ... and GURPS Traveller: Starships gives them to you! In addition to rules for designing and rating your own starships (at both TL-9 and TL-10), this book contains over 35 pre-designed craft, ranging from 10-ton fighters to 500,000-ton dreadnoughts, described in detail and ready for use in a campaign.

GURPS Traveller: Starships also details the "View from the Deck" ... the experience of being aboard a starship. Passengers and pursers, bridge crews and black gang, owners and deckhands... they're all here.

Charters and salvage operations are included, spiced up with encounters, adventure seeds and a cast of NPC owners, masters and crew.

Whether your campaign involves a single surplus scout or a fleet of dozens of warships, GURPS Traveller: Starships has everything you need!
