    Yep, I'm very happy with the way the plans came out and hope others enjoy using them in their games. The Ranger class is one of my favourite FASA designs.

    That seems like a really high crew compliment for a ship that size and with that mission—is the figure from the FASA books?

    Yep, it is. Look at Deck 2 and you can see that it has enough bunk space for the crew in double cabins.

    And, with all due respect and praise to Owen, it is a well designed set of plans and an inspired reimaging of the FASA design - IMHO an ideal small ship.

    With a reasonable crew compliment and two (very jammed in) shuttlecratft, it can be used as anything from a true scout exploration of "strange new worlds", to a courier, to a police cutter, to ( as I am using) a customs cutter, picketing the Rigel system, and conducting customs inspections and safety checks on UFP registered merchants.

    The FASA Orions supplement says that StarFleet ships are (as you would expect) kept to very strict flight paths in Rigel Space. And so I imagine the ship kept in orbit around Rigel II (the one planet in that system they are permitted to orbit) while Inspection Teams in the two shuttles range around the system conducting the actual inspections. With the mothership ranging further afield should there be a need.

    For this the Ranger is perfect.

    Hey everyone. First post. New to the forums here.

    Now that that's out of the way, I would like to share what I'm doing for my "One Small Ship" campaign I'm running. Has anybody here read the Star Trek Vanguard or Seekers novels? They feature a tiny Archer-class scout ship called the USS Sagittarius. In my campaign, my crew are also flying an Archer-class scout ship called the USS Artemis. It has a crew complement of 14 with tight living conditions, not heavily armed, but very fast and stealthy. This feels perfect for TOS-era campaigns.

    You could try playing on an Oberth class scout. That´s the class seen in Star Trek II which was blown up by the Klingons. It has a crew of 20.

    There´s also an Oberth class surveyor seen in TNG with a crew of 80. You´ll find it´s statistics in the TNG-LUG-book and also in the SRM1.

    I think most of the statistics can be used unchanged for the smaller version.

    Playing on the smaller version is also great because there are some excellent deckplans available, made by Owen E. Oulten.
    Maybe someone else knows where you can download them.
