I was updating a reference for Issue 15 and read a bit of "For a Fistfull of Credits" Dragon #112. All this talk of 'What is SF cannon' and I see David Zeb Cook submitted thought computers, cloning, memory recording and more. Kinda outside the scope of what most of us like about SF.

Anyway, got inspired to draw his vehicle. I submitted it for Issue 16 if we lack gear, otherwise I could throw it in #17.

It is expected that with the passage of time new innovations in technology and invention would come into the game setting universe. Memory recording doesnt sound too far of a jump from the hypno learning centers that are already in the game. I think Fusion power should seriously be considered as another plausable innovation. I hope that one day gravity technology will be accepted by the community if applied in a conservative and balanced fashion. I dont think we should abandon the Vertical deck configurations with the introduction of artificial gravity but it could make longer trips more endurable and get rid of the need of those awful velcro boots.

I agree on the gravity - conservative and balanced. I read some of the SW Darkstryder campaign and they could manipulate gravity on a ship down to the room, hallway, maint tube level. Too fantasic for me. 

I'm watching Aeon Flux and it appears you can swallow a "communication pill" and receive a message. I'm going to type it up in the Ultimate Equipment Guide

sure until the grav field generator takes a hit in combat.

I might not be a dralasite, vrusk or yazirian but I do play one in Star Frontiers!
