Alright. Digressing from my previous thread, I'd like to see what kind of stuff we could work on collectively. I'd like a list (from A-wing to Z-95 Headhunter) of Star Wars vehicles... and don't leave anything out!

Let us see what the combinded Gearhead might of the Traveller Veterans can produce. It doesn't matter the system (though CT is always nice and easy for me to understand)... just do it!

Oh, and I forgot to mention. Don't be afraid to fudge the rules a little (or a lot) include a hyperdrive for small craft, cut the fuel size, downsize those overly large computers! Make up shields! Lets get it down on paper, and argue about it later

I'd like to see the Star Destroyers, the original ones from the first three.

Vehicles or Starships?
Movie or Book (or Both)?
Including the Essential Vehicle guides and Incredible cross sections?
Which Version of Traveller?

If you had access to some Star Wars d20 material you could look at it as a baseline to work from for converting it to Traveller T20.

Everything
Movies or Books, it don't matter
Go ahead and use whatever source you like
any version is fine, but CT is easiest to convert (for anyone who wants to) from what I understand

I posted this in the other Star Wars thread in the Lone Star but it's relevant here too...

As a point of interest, a couple of years ago I started building 1:1 scale block models of various vehicles in Studio MAX and using it to get pretty accurate calculations. These are the Star Wars results:

X-Wing Fighter 12.9m 36.43cuM 2.7dtons
TIE Fighter 6.3m 23.52cuM 1.74dtons
Millenium Falcon 26.7m 863.48cuM 63.96dtons
Slave1 21.5m 432.18cuM 32.01dtons
Rebel Transport 90m 17,876cuM 1324.1dtons
Star Destroyer 1604m 69.18milcuM 5.1mil dtons
DeathStar II 160,000m 17,088bilcuM 1265.8 Bil dtons
Tyderium Shuttle 20m 594.10cuM 44dtons
Cloud City 16000m 306,322.3milcuM 22,690.5 mil dtons

1 DTon = 13.5 cuM
1 Billion = 1,000,000,000,000
1 Trillion = 1,000,000,000,000,000,000

I still have many SW ships/vehicles on my list to do that I haven't gotten round to yet. Any requests?
