    Gorn Ship Recognition manual?

    Looks like someone cobbled together some house stats that emulates the old Fasa formatting and look. Not bad.

    I agree. I sorely miss the old FASA ST: RPG. Some of the happiest years of my life were GMIng this game in the mid-80s. One never forgets one's first love.

    John M. Ford died on the weekend

    Ford was the influential Star Trek novelist who defined the Klingons (and many fans) for FASA's Star Trek RPG.

    However, we can assume that either Capt. Decker can't count, or Khan Noonian Singh can't count.

    No, no longer an issue, but there was some supplanting. Which is ok, because as the owner, it is Paramount's right.
