Shawn, just wanted you to know the old merchant ship is in use.

####

We found Captain Ian sitting on a ramp type thing in the middle of the woods. There were two metal plates propped up by old logs. He sat under one and the other was right beside him.

“Whoa.” Forest Rat said. It sounded like she was in chapel.

I wasn’t sure why a set of metal plates was out here and what Captain Ian was doing sitting on one. It looked like the things had been here for years. He seemed to think it was as natural as anything. I thought any place to park my rear and rest looked good to me.

“That’s so cool.” Forest said in that same reverent voice.

“Is this for real, sir?” Lost said. She sounded like Forest.

My brain finally kicked in. The shadows were off and weeds were climbing all over the place. The metal plates weren’t just stuck out in the middle of no where.

Captain Ian was sitting in the cargo bay loading ramp of a star ship.

Exactly. My players at the table did a similar thing when I showed them that ship in alien overgrown cornfields. The crew were skeletons by then.

When I was a poor high schooler I went to an Upward Bound summer session. Found a gaming group that was playing Traveller and spent the next several months dreaming of fixing up an old star ship and travelling the galaxy like Han Solo.

In the story Ian got this old non-usable ship as a gift and he's dreamed of fixing her up. He can buy a new ship but the old girl of his dreams needs a lot of love. The kids are his students and he's going to teach them about being merchants.

When I was 14 or 15, I always thought about what it would be like to be Zefram Cochrane, piecing together a cockpit/sleep-pod on an FTL drive.

Stuff like that builds space federations. More drama.

I was thought I was being more realistic by wamting to be Harry Broderick when I grew up. What did I know? I was still in grammer school.

Went with the feel of the old ship and the layout of the MgT 1st Ed Far Trader. Ian is finally going to fix the old girl up. That also explains rear cargo doors.

Once I finish my ship, the two openings in the back will make more sense. The cargo door with freight lifter/ramp will be on the bottom.
