Starship regular maintenance seems like overkill

So, I was looking at the starship regular maintenance information on page 179. It says that every week a roll has to be made or you have a minor component failure. It specifically says if your crew is in hypersleep you need an android to take care of it.  At first I was like "cool, it adds backgroun...

Re: Campaign idea: Alien: Voyager

Actually, I mentioned the gravity drive twice in my first paragraph in my first post. The book actually mentions both weight and mass in the same sentence leaving it vague what it actually means. And for roleplaying purposes your average person isn't going to do physics calculations let's be honest....

Re: XX121 Damage on Androids

Dave really thought this out! I was basically going to go with "If it's a one-hit kill on a human, it's the same on a synth, otherwise, they just take the damage of the attack."

Re: What is the max. number of base dice you can roll?

I thought there was a max of 10 but I must have misremembered.

Re: Campaign idea: Alien: Voyager

I see our disconnect. The Gravity drive isn't affected by someone being awake. The book says the following: "Gravity drives are finely calibrated and weight sensitive-any unaccounted for mass aboard a starship utilizing the system risks severe course deviation." The way I interpreted this statement ...

Re: What is the max. number of base dice you can roll?

They have the same limit except they don't get stress dice. So an android, at best, will get 10 base dice. So, if they have strength 8 and 5 heavy machinery, 3 dice are just lost and they roll 10 dice.

Re: Trying to make sense of "Xenomorphs"

Ok, first off about the Xenomorph bit. The reference materials and the EU have "fixed" this a bit by referring to it as Xenomorph 1121 officially, IE in company documents and such. Marines and everyday people tend to call them anything from monsters to bugs to xenomorphs. I think that works honestly...

Re: ALIEN Isolation Crafting

I'd probably make it a talent you pick up. It'd use heavy machinery or cometech depending on what you were trying to build. Like others suggested you'd make a supply roll to see if you use up your components. Done this way it's probably a talent most useful to Roughnecks but that makes sense as that...

Re: Campaign idea: Alien: Voyager

Niot that actual campaign title but the idea came to me while reading about the gravity drives. It said that if the weight of the ship is off that it risks "severe course deviation." I had a thought "what if a stowaway got on an exploration vessel equipped with a gravity drive?" To be honest, I'd b...
