If you are using Zozer Games's Orbital low-tech setting - or just have a need for a relatively primitive exploration/survey craft for use in-system - this is a nice, well-presented one to have to hand.

The product begins with some explanatory notes giving the rationale for the design's development within the Orbital setting, and this is followed by the description of a 'walk through' which brings the vessel to life in one's mind's eye as if one was watching a TV documentary about it. Given the low-tech level, by Traveller standards, of this craft, it is easy to visualise and indeed could almost be built today. It's certainly easy to imagine.

The actual deckplans, produced in standard Traveller style, show clearly how the whole thing hangs together and presents the craft ready for play.

The product rounds off with several variant forms - for anything from a small attack craft to a cargo ship or a rescue vehicle - and gives an example crew. These are fully-developed NPCs, so if you decide that your characters are going to encounter one of these craft rather than be running it, the crew is ready-made for you.

As already mentioned, this low-tech design is customised for the Orbital setting. If you are not using it, you might still find a use for this... perhaps if your characters encounter a system that has only developed to this level of technology, or if it is a poor system that doesn't have the resources to use more sophisticated craft in-system.
