FYI, some guy on Amazon is charging over $1000 for a copy of GURPS [T] Starships.

Why? when I think you can get a printed copy at lulu for like $40. Some people are sick when they think they can get away with price murder.
Some things not everything can be reprinted with lulu.com.


Oy. and when you have the pdf, I think you can make yourself a binder with the printed pages at home. It'll cost you a little in ink and paper but its yours and if Marc Miller or Steve Jackson don't mind sell it on Ebay/Amazon for $900 as newly assembled.


Heee,


Joe

You know, I hate to say it, but sometimes that's just a money-laundering scheme. Pay big bucks for something innocuous in order to transfer assets.

Leaves a bad taste on the tongue, The TRUTH does.

I once read that the three battleships in Supp 9 we're meant to resemble:
Tigress=Death Star
Plankwell=battlestar
Kokirakks=klingon battlecruiser

Interesting. I've always been of the opinion that the original Kzinti CV in Star Fleet Battles looks like the Galactica. All you have to do is connect the "paws" forward and aft with some vertical lines.

The Kzinti design ethic was established before BSG came out... The CS and FF form factor was retained from the Pocket Edition (1975) onward.
