Default MGT Ship Designs

I would like to see stats (and pictures, oh yes precious..) for new ships designed with the MGT ship design system, either the basic system, or the new High Guard. I will attempt to gun something up myself.

Won't they NEED deckplans, too?
I thought that it was some sort of MGT rule that every ship must have a deckplan.

While deckplans would be cool, I ain't gonna shoot for the moon. Just some more designs would be nice.

I have an idea in the back of my head for a fleet of spacegoing...museums of Imperial History that visit new member worlds and other places to help educate the populace about the Imperium.

maybe something like in the riddick movies that the necromongers had. A ship that looks like a huge ornate museum on the outside and can make landings on a planet.

What a cool idea, allen!

Although, The insurance people might go crazy with that idea. Landing a museum would be cool as hell, but would have elements of risk.

risk in the landing procedure itself, and risk of the given planetary environment that it would land on (local wars, natural disasters, who knows.)

A museum ship that would stay on orbit, and use orbit to surface shuttles might be one way of cutting back on the chance of Imperial Art or Artefacts being destroyed in an accident or by intent.

That makes more sense, actually... the museum stays in orbit and the visitors are brought up in shuttles.

Hi,

This might be getting a little of on a tangent, but your post reminded me of something I read along time ago about a ship the UK used as part of their "Festival of Britain" after the Second World War. Looking on the internet it appears that this was meant kind of as a way to inspire the nation to look forward after the long and devastating war. Something like that might be suitable in a Traveller setting especially after either the 5th Frontier War or the Solomoni Rim War, etc.

Here are a couple Wikipedia links to the Festival and the ship, HMS Campania.

Regards

PF

I was told to take a look at this thread, and it is indeed the kind of thread
that can lure me back to this forum.

An excellent idea !

The Colonial Office of my setting's Solar Federation could use something like
this to strengthen the cohesion of the Federation, in a similar function as the
Hiver embassy ships, by showing the common cultural heritage of all the pla-
nets settled by humans.

I am very much looking forward to your design of a museum ship, and of
course to all the other interesting ship designs this thread may bring.
