Traveller Book 2 Starships - Marc Miller

Solid starship and navigation rules with creation and crewing guidelines. With tables, that would be good for solo exploration type play a la Elite. Also financing. Also vector movement and combat...which has fiddliness that will be no fun some of the time. Lucky the gravity well got me and made that missile miss! Some 1970s amusement to be had...basic level 1 ship computer can run two programs at a time! Then you have to switch them out. Plus, it is one ton. Also, a ship must use 5 tons for mail. In the future, letter writers abound. Pre-PC tech, advancing not. And small craft usually have computers not at all. Going to go through lots of space pens and pencils there presumably. 3.5 out of 5
