Hello Folks,
I've a question for you and I thought I'd see how well this topic takes off here

In the beginning, there was the big bang - and it was good. It was so good, that man and Aslan and others all had to emulate it with many other bangs - perhaps not as big, but just as satisfying perhaps.

Ok, enough of that claptrap right? The idea here is to say that here and now (in the fictional universe of Traveller - requires that there be some sort of continuity with the past of the Traveller Universe, right? Whether we're talking about Mileu Zero or the Virus or the Rebellion or any of the Traveller time periods, each of those "periods" had to have a foundation of a past to build off of. I'll bet, that right now, you're all wondering when I will get to my point, assuming I have one. The point is simple actually...

What were the ships like prior to the "present" (whatever milieu you want to say is the present)? In other words, lets say that the Planwell is one of the hottest Dreadnaughts going in today's Universe? What was the dreadnaught like before the Planwell class Dreadnaught? What are the TL 14 ships like that were the predecesors of the current TL 15 ships? What were the TL 13 ships like? The TL 12's?

Per the history of the Imperium, the Sylean Confederation was the seed of the 3rd Imperium. What were the ships like for that time period? As each successive tech level was approached, and then introduced - what were the "new hottest ships" of the time? Fighting Ships of the Shattered Imperium attempted to answer this question, but it did so in decidedly generic aspects. Has anyone ever really tried to "document" what the evolution of ships were from the early years of the Sylean's transformation into the current crop of ships extant within the Third Imperium?
