The Shipyard

Almost anyone that travels between worlds dreams of owning their own transportation. A lucky few (in comparison) can afford to do so. Shipyards are where those few make their dreams into reality.

The Freelance Traveller shipyard is where you can find descriptions and specifications (and eventually deck plans and interior pictures, we hope) for starships and spaceships for all sorts of missions. Ultimately, as we receive additional contributions (from you, our readers), all incarnations of Traveller will be supported.

Freelance Traveller is also proud to be able to offer, free for you to download, the BITS publication 101 Starships, Seventh Edition. This document, authored by Rob Prior, contains descriptions and design worksheets for a wide range of spaceships and starships suitable for use with GURPS Traveller. Freelance Traveller has, with permission, selected a number of designs from this collection to start off this section. Additional designs from 101 Starships may be added as time permits, but we encourage you to download the PDF document to enjoy the entire set immediately.

In addition to the designs from 101 Starships listed above, you can find more GURPS Traveller designs here at Freelance Traveller's shipyard.

We aren't neglecting Classic Traveller, MegaTraveller, Traveller: The New Era, Marc Miller's Traveller (T4), Traveller20, or Mongoose Traveller designs either.

The following designs don't appear to fit into any of our other classifications, or are supplied in for multiple rule sets:

Carriers, Cruisers, and Cans
Ken Pick has done a series of variant ship designs around his Beyond Book 2 rules extensions.
