Space, untimely

In the last post, on Traveller, I failed to mention the possible inspiration concept ships has up at the moment, in the form of spaceship environments. Take a look if you need a spark for anything space-based or even sci-fi.

Like what? Well, for space-based you could use the first part of the series on ships and spaceships here - 'A tall ship and a star' - as a launchpad; read through the comments for more ideas. The second part is still in the shipyard, but there's something related putting out shoots even as I type that should be out of the nursery in the next few hours.

While I'm here, I'll mention the current post over at Science In My Fiction, on the use of lasers. Apparently, space is the most feasible location if they have to be weapons.

I think a cross between a WWII sub and modern aircraft carrier would be a neat space ship idea.

Dystopian Wars has some interesting designs, and one of them might come close. Have you seen the Athena at Dei Greci? It's got that feel to it and was originally more carrier-like.
