Default Need deck plans for a large starship.

I'm sending my players to get eaten by monsters on an ice world with a Neptune-like crushing atmosphere while tracking a rescue beacon.

I need deck plans. Does anybody have any links to favorite lost starships to explore?

And there are *things* out there. At one point, a party member may lose footing and fall into a shadowed crevice, and these black leech-like "tubes" will attack to his hostile environment suit and start to eat their way in with acid, setting off the suit integrity alarm.

etc....

I just did a quick Google for "ocean liner deck plans" and "freighter deck plans", and found all sorts of stuff. The liner plans are mostly travel agent, promotional stuff, but some of the freighters show mechanical spaces, holds, etc.

for example:

Not a starship, but it's big! Hope this helps.

5000 ton Darwin class exploration ship. Pic's not that great, but I can get you better plus dig out the stats and key to the plans if you want.

I think there was a scenario like that with the AHL boxed set ... so you could use an AHL.

Or if you have the "King Richard" (either original print version by FASA, or it's on the Apocrypha I CDROM) that might serve your needs (probably better than an AHL).

How fast do you need it?

If uninterurpted, I can get one done by Saturday afternoon?
Ship card would be a day later?

Here's another one specifically for Traveller, a 5000 tonner:

And a 2000 tonner:

The parent site has all sorts of deckplan goodness:

Enjoy!

Yet another website, all Star Wars, but one of the capital ships might do:

Can you really make me a custom set of alien deck plans for a wrecked ship? That would be extra cool. I would need it by Sunday morning (the game is this Sunday at noon).

It should have breaks in the hull (and could be at an angle: suits have magnetized gloves and boots).

It should have some sub-vehicles that can be salvaged, including some nice ones and some crushed ones (from the landing).

It should have low berths with long dead passengers/crew in them.

That would be cool. Thanks in advance. Maybe we can submit the game to Far Trader magazine. I'll write you a log of how the game came out.
