I completely forgot we had all the fabrication modules!  Those are better than gold in this setting!  They don't have the power source to run them here though.

I'm using TNE rules for the equipment, so I can give you some idea of what power sources are available.

The fabricators are limited to TL-12, so here are the specs for some powerplants to run the entire fabricator setup:

The smallest possible fusion reactor weighs 40 tonnes and produces 20MW - and it uses superdense in its construction.

A fuel cell big enough to run all the fabricators masses 5.34 tonnes, and consumes about 170 gallons of liquid fuel per hour. This also covers turbine and reciprocating generators.

For solar panels, they would cover 40,000 square meters, and mass 240 tonnes.

Looks like we need less than 10MW.  That's not too bad but more than I think the locals can manage.

What TL is Egg?

Egg is TL-10. They are working up to TL-12 with legacy tech, though.

That puts it in context, thanks.

And our ship is TL-12 as well?

Yes, that was the standard in Imperial space. The higher TL stuff was from a few larger systems.

So smaller jump capable ships than 100 tons?

Also, is Jump 2 rare?

From Wanderer's database, and what is available at home, the Imperium had advanced to Jump 6 at their highest tech level (TL-15 in the game). Naval vessels, X-boats, fast passenger liners, and couriers were among those ships that could jump that far. So, they weren't altogether rare, but they were usually only for governments or corporations, since they couldn't carry much cargo for their displacement tonnage.

I'm using TNE rules, so it will allow for some really small jump-capable ships. This is the smallest one I could engineer at TL-15.

At TL-21, it's possible to make a jump-capable spacesuit with an antimatter power source. I don't know that I'd want to spend a week going potty in a spacesuit, but it's possible ;-)

I figured to get a smaller jump capable ship you were tweaking with the TNE rules.  I'm good with TNE as I love the setting.

I used the rules as they are, without my house rules. I posted the Excel workbook so you could play with it :-) I'm not that good with Excel, but I've had this workbook for years.

You need a spreadsheet to do any of the MT or TNE ship designs.

Ain't that right?

This makes it much easier. I'd started in on the rules for weapons bays, but I never use them, so I didn't finish it.

I'm a decent user but I'm not a macro-pivot table guy.

I can do some things with pivot tables and, as you can see, a little with lookups.

I can struggle through pivot tables using the Help functions well enough.  I just don't do it enough to get good.

Very nice renders of the two girls.  I like the vests in particular.

From overheard conversations, it's a traditional outfit for the area where the girls live. They said they had shoes, too, but they'd removed them before they went aboard the runabout.

I don't know if I posted this before, but the jump drives take ten minutes to recycle. Wanderer takes twenty minutes to transfer fuel from the cargo bay tanks to the main tanks for a second jump. The runabout takes fifteen minutes to refuel, since it's using a flexible hose connection.

So we're going to take at least 15 minutes to turn around a jump with everything going right.

Twenty, because Wanderer has to transfer fuel from the aux tanks for a second jump.

Gotcha!  We'll make sure to practice it with the crew until we have it down.
