Yayyy.

On my Destroyer submission --- please leave out all the FE stuff for the SFman if you will (the extra deckplan on the destoyer page and the alternate gun profile on the gunnery deck graphic, as well as the stats on the techs/specs page) as it is still subject to change...and I just edited the crew quarters/gunnery deck to add a laundry room. That should be final. For now. LOL

I tossed in another submission...although it's not themed to this issue. You can always stuff it into #12 later though. I'll hunt down any other KH stuff I might have to offer in the meantime.

Ah, I think I have the perfect thing...just submitted it.

P.S. do you still have my "Theseus/Minotaur System Brief" submission from a few issues ago? It was never used and this could be a decent place to insert it.

We have Theseus and it should be in this issue.

Any Word on Issue 11's appearance?

Also, does anyone know where I can get a copy of Issue 8? The link on the site leads to a "page not found" message.

Issue 11 is almost done, I'm just waiting on an article from w00t (or a decision not to include it) and we could use some classified ads.

I'll put a copy of issue 8 online later today in an alternate location and post a link.

Did you get the photograph I did on Battle rage?
I might not be a dralasite, vrusk or yazirian but I do play one in Star Frontiers!

Is it too late to make a correction on a submission?

Parriah made an extensive list over at the SF.org forum of all the UPF ship names, he gathered them from all the official TSR published material and the various fanzines (Dragon, Polyhedron, etc) alike. Among this list is Minotaur's militia, which would essentially edit that section of the Theseus system brief to read as follows:

"correction of my submission" wrote:
Overhead are the wheels in the sky, also known as Androgeus Station (a fortified space station) and the Daedalus Shipyards (a Class: II Starship Construction Center comprised of three type:6 stations). Minotaur's Defensive Ships are berthed in Androgeus, including a destroyer (MDS Republic), a frigate (MDS Heroic), four assault scouts (MDS Dragonfly, Gnat, Mosquito, and Wasp) along with six squadrons of fighters. Their militia is the largest and most respected in the Frontier.



The original submission was:

Overhead are the wheels in the sky, also known as Androgeus Station (a fortified space station) and the Daedalus Shipyards (a Class: II Starship Construction Center comprised of three type:6 stations). Minotaur's Defensive Ships are berthed in Androgeus, including a destroyer (MDS Ares), a frigate (MDS Apollo), four assault scouts (MDS Battle Axe, Spear, Flail, and War Hammer) along with six squadrons of fighters. Their militia is the largest and most respected in the Frontier."

The Republic and Wasp are duplicate names, the Republic is the Inner Rach militia destroyer and the Wasp is a Clarion scout...but with different designations it really shouldn't be an issue (MDS Wasp versus CMS Wasp).

No, it's not too late.  I was thinking about grabbing that list as well.  I'll grab it and work it in and update the Theseus article as well.

Okay one more edit for the Theseus brief...Parriah listed a station as well so I'm throwing that in.

"hopefully the final edited version" wrote:
Overhead are the wheels in the sky, also known as Androgeus Station (a fortified space station) and the Daedalus Shipyards (a Class: II Starship Construction Center comprised of three type:6 stations). A third smaller civilian station also orbits the moon, dubbed Minotaur Station (size 4 station). Minotaur's Defensive Ships are berthed in Androgeus, including a destroyer (MDS Republic), a frigate (MDS Heroic), four assault scouts (MDS Dragonfly, Gnat, Mosquito, and Wasp) along with six squadrons of fighters. Their militia is the largest and most respected in the Frontier.


Seeing as the shipyard wouldn't change, and how neghboring Clarion has Fortress Redoubt and the civilian Clarion Station, I went with adding a smaller station for the published "Minotaur Station" rather than renaming the militarized station.
