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.

I think I SAW this in an old DRAGON magazine someone gave me!  That was YOU?!  You get around, man.

Nope, this piece is new and hasn't been published anywhere but DA. But it's possible you saw some of my work in Dragon. I think I did one or two assignments for them, but mostly my work appeared in GDW's Challenge magazine.

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! ;)

Egad - I have loved your art for years! (I've been an RPG designer and all that).

Great to see you here!
