Commercial Courier by Rob-Caswell Commercial Courier by Rob-Caswell
Well here's something that's as big a surprise to me as to you: a new Traveller starship from me! OK, so it's not REALLY new. The design, that is. I created this back in '89 but it's only been a sketchbook doodle 'til now. I figured I'd do it up proper (read: digitally) and submit it to the Traveller Group's "Old Ship is New" challenge.

I figured that the Traveller universe's megacorps wouldn't let themselves be a slave to speed of the Imperial X-Boat network for informational needs. They'd have their own courier network shuttling news and supplies between their interstellar facilities. And that's how this ship's concept was born.

Actually there'd be a plethora of different courier lines aligned along commercial, financial and military lines. Not to mention diplomatic corps and ?????

Thanks! I tend to go for "sleek and simple"... even when I'm trying not to! ;)

Hey! Write to me at paul@purehubris.com

Great to see you.
albedo ended up torpedoed due to the comicbook artist going to an odd place. ah well. "Lace and Steel" has just been picked up by a new companuy, though. (and I've written novels for the new Gammaworld release, as well as a ton of D&D stuff).
- I'm still getting games books out. Castles andCrusades is a blast!
I'm still out there, a full time novelist and screenwriter. I have some SF stuff I'd LOVE to involve you with!

Ack - such a blast to find you here! Do drop me an email soon!
