Default GT Starships inspired by CT ships...

Hello Folks,
I thought I'd share a ship design inspired by the Adventure Class ships product put out by FASA some years back. Obviously, there is no one to one translation of the ship from FASA to GURPS due to the space acceleration being a function of mass in GURPS, but it seemed close enough to match the intent that I was happy with it. Feel free to modify it if so desired. This was created using the GMV software.

Also, it might be wise to create the Zhodani versions of weapons instead of using Imperial Standard weapons, but then again, why bother?



150-ton Chatl-class Zhodani Scout Leader(TL11)

The Chatl class leader scout is designed for personnel transfers (usually senior naval officers) as well as orders to where they are required. The upper deck contains avionics with a bridge and computer. The galley and wardroom is further aft. Near the stern of the ship are the airlock are the engineering areas, ship's locker, aft air lock to the port, The lower deck contains the staterooms with share a head. Consoles located in the staterooms allow remote operation of the sole turret. There is also a monoitor on the lower deck for engineering duties if necessary. Since this craft has two staterooms plus a bunk area, it is capable of carrying up to 2 senior officers in comfort, with the captain of the ship being bunked in the bunk room, or can carry a total of 1 senior officer plus 3 other members associated with the senior officer in the bunk area with the captain retaining his normal quarters.

Crew: 2: Pilot/Captain plus 1 rating to handle engineering and/or turret responsibilities.

This class of Escort Destroyer isn't based on anything, but designed for use with my Traveller Universe. It was a start towards detailing the Lunion Sub-sector navy at one point in time. The 20 dtons of unspecified small craft could be 2x 10dton fighters, maybe life boats, or what have you. The crew size is larger than it needs to be for the classic traveller universe, but I tend to go for redundancy for 24/7 operations etc. That I don't have any marines for this ship is an oversight on my part, but - as an early craft, might prove useful for someone in their own campaign.
