Re: Does a Cheyenne fit in a Bison?

So, @_ArthurDallas_, just because I'm stupid and needs to be spoonfed everything; is the USCSS Miranda on your diviant art page a Model CM-88G Bison?

Re: Ship-jacking; how to enter a Bison-G in space (externally docked to space station)

In ALIEN, Kane's body is ejected from a lock between the main fuselage and the engines. Oh, that's a good point! Thanks :) I wonder... IIRC, there are some indication (early script/storyboard?) that an airlock scene was planned involving the stalking Xeno in some way; I can't remember the details. ...

Ship-jacking; how to enter a Bison-G in space (externally docked to space station)

Hey all, :) I need some help figuring out the logistics and practicalities of penetrating a Bison ship, through an EVA operation, while the ship is docked to a space station. I’m a bit dumb when it comes to tech and such, and I haven’t read any of the tech manuals and blue print books either, so… he...

Re: Starship STL speeds

Thanks guys. Great insights. I should have clarified that this is explicitly STL for two reasons: 1)The ship currently has no hyperdrive (the Bison took a lot of damage in a recent terrorist attack, and the hyperengine is being overhauled back at dock); 2)The CMs hitching a ride are doing a quick pa...

Starship STL speeds

Hey all,

It might've been stated somewhere clear as day but I can't find it... How fast does starship travel out of FTL? How long does it take, say... a Conestoga or Bison at STL through a starship? An AUs traveled speed would be cool :)

Awesome if someone can help an idiot out with this.

Re: Stats for Fire Axes (and other melee weapons)

Considering unarmed attacks, I think it is more realistic if hitting someone with your bare fists does non lethal damage. If someone gets broken, he is just unconscious and no need for a roll on the critical injury table. Yeah, further limiting unarmed attacks by adding a non-lethal quality might b...

Re: Stats for Fire Axes (and other melee weapons)

Right, I just noticed the foraging table from Hope's Last Day which lists a couple of the items I requested... So, here goes (with commentary) FIRE AXE: +0, DMG 2 (i.e., same as a Knife; I would think that this should also have Armor Piercing) HEAVY TOOL aka. Big-ass Wrench: +1, DMG 1 (i.e. the same...

Stats for Fire Axes (and other melee weapons)

Hey all, There are some melee ("close combat") weapons in the rulebook, but no expansions of the list in the Colonial Marines Manual (that I can find). I would like to see some stats for more mundane weapons that unfortunate civilians might reach for in a time of crisis. In particular, I need stats ...

Re: What's next (after Colonial Marines Manual)?

Again, those are very good ideas, Bengt :)

I'd also like some more discussion on interstellar politics and factions, in particular the UPP and other "nations". This could possibly be covered in a corporation sourcebook, though.
