Spacecraft of the Solar System describes the interplanetary and orbital craft of Transhuman Space, from the mighty Angel-class Space Dominance Vehicles of the USAF to the swift Sunlance couriers used by Solar Express. Here you'll find:

  • An overview of the space forces of China, the European Union, and the United States, covering their history, tactics, equipment, and organization.
  • Details of commercial spacecraft operations, with corporate profiles of the major space lines, security procedures, cargo handling systems, and licensing requirements.
  • Over two dozen spacecraft designs, from reliable workhorses like the sleek Mercury laser-lift vehicle and the enormous Zhongguang deep space freighter, to state-of-the-art vessels such as the Nadezhda, a living "bioship."

The spacecraft statistics in this book are intended for use with the Transhuman Space core book. The background material can be adapted to any science fiction game.

GURPS Basic Set, Compendium I, and Transhuman Space are required to use this book in a GURPS campaign. GURPS Space and Bio-Tech are recommended. The ideas in Spacecraft of the Solar System can be used with any roleplaying system.
