DESCRIPTION:

YG-Series

   The YG series dates back to the early centuries of galactic exploration.  Most were built-to-order specialty ships, constructed for specific purposes.  Many were transports and freighters, but some were exploration craft.  The modular design that marks all later Corellian ships began with the YG series.  Each ship was designed to be endlessly refitted and modified by a long string of owners.  Although the last YGs came off the production lines centuries ago, a very few are still functional, having been rebuilt and refurbished dozens of times.  None of these ships match their original specifications anymore, but they are still identifiable as stout Corellian vessels....for the most part.



GAME DESIGN NOTES:

Inspiration And Purpose

   After converting the Aeon Ranger and moving on to the other ships from A Legacy of Starships, I kept wondering about what was said in the Ranger's Description, about the ships being old and how none of them fit their original specs anymore.  Made me thing about, well, this, a ship entry where when buying it, you wouldn't know what you were going to get.  Like buying a used car.  It could go really well, or go really bad, or result in something in between.  After converting more ships from Legacy, I had the urge to give this a try, and voila.  I like the result, it's simple, potentially a lot of fun, and it also doubles as a way to drop ships into a game without having to look up stats for a specific ship when someone can't remember what book it's in.

   The picture shows the Aeon Ranger, but that ship's Description states that its rear engine section is that of a different ship entirely (a YG-5000).  This write-up is intended to represent YG-4210 ships, however it can represent the entire YG series of ships, and even go beyond this.  With a few changes, it could even be used to produce capital ships.

   GMs, players, i hope you enjoy using this in your games.

Missile Speed

   If you are using traditional Star Wars D6 rules, just ignore this, it's no big deal.  However, if you want your missile weapons to work more like other sci-fi franchises, and/or a little IRL, then use this optional rule: When fired, the missile does not stop at space range 7.  Instead, it keeps traveling, using this range as the missile's Space Speed (and relevant Atmosphere Speed).  In this case, since the missile is fired behind the ship to deter chasers from following, the chasing craft moves forward at its speed, while the missile moves back towards the chaser at its speed.  If another combat round follows, the missile keeps traveling in that direction at this speed (if it did not hit anything last round, like if the chaser was just out of range).  While this means missiles can be more useful, it also means moving targets like ships will have more time to figure out what to do against the incoming missile(s).
