I understand one needed a mighty big cannon and it tended to be a little hard on the starships.

OTOH I recall there being a variety of starship races in canon.

There would almost have to be an Iron Chef contest among the Vilani shugilii...

....true. And they can do neat stuff in low grav, what with the wings. And the invisibility. Not to mention telekinesis. Which is why the Droyne team has always won every sporting gold medal in the Imperium except for the blindfold underwater wrestling event.

Isn't this how a starship race would go:
"How many Gs does your ship have?"
"Six."
"Well, my ship only has five, so you win." [ ]

Hmmm. I'm not sure I like the thought of the likely mystery ingredient for that one.

Default The Decadel Games

At the start of my new Traveller CT campaign, the backdrop consisted of The Decadel Games. Think a combination of World Series, Stanley, Kentucky Derby with a bit of The Olympics thrown in and you have The Decadel Games. It is the Final Four of basically Space Rubgy. located in the asteroid belt in the 4th orbital of the Jewell system in the Spinward Marches. Held every ten years, it is likely THE sporting event of the Spinward Marches, with VIP spectators coming from around the sector (and beyond) to view it in person from the veiwing stand where they sit in a heavy monitor-rich easychair console, picking several of the many POV camshots available. Available camshots are from each player's helmet, various staged points, with Zoom and enhanced visions. It is a week of festivities leading up to the Championship Game on Holiday.

Haha, that would be awesome. I guess they'd wear something akin to battledress.
