Metagame: Traveller5 ACS and HMS Herald.

So, one of the many projects I am working on is the HMS Herald Class Starships book. Yeah, like a for real Supplement for Traveller5. Right now I have the basics that were originally used for a Citizen's of the Imperium Private Traveller5 Forum play by post.

Now that I am doing something for real, I am wondering if I am missing anything now while I do the port over from the OTU over to the Permatic Imperium. So here is a nice teaser shot of my lovely starship and the outline as it stands. If you think I am missing something or something should be cut this is your time to say so. Otherwise, I am going to assume that it is pretty much on target and run with it. Okay, I plan on running with it anyway, but right now without further modifications.

And now the outline.
