Dawning Star: Operation Quick Launch - Lee Hammock

A d20 science fiction based on the d20 Future SRD which I haven't read - referencing tech levels from there a la Traveller. In the mid 23rd century a big dark thing threats to destroy the Earth, so colony ship time. And First Contact time...leading to a frontier settlement. So all solid...on the planet this references, Eos, there are also native primitive aliens to go along with the advanced flavour met in space leading to a variety of story possibilities. Colony ship had 180,000 Hit Points apparently. So you can have a 7th level Lawman if you fancy that sort of game, or a 5th level engineer fixing the rarer Mecha, or a pilot, etc. Quite solid and serious but definitely overly verbose. 3 out of 5
