Omega 99 – Peregrine Transport Spacecraft – Traveller/Cepheus Engine

peregrineI’m continuing to play around with the Traveller/Cepheus Engine setting Omega 99. This is the one-sheet setting Michael Brown put out that is clearly inspired by the old 70s’ TV show Space 1999. I made a character sheet for Omega 99 in a previous post.

I’ve designed, as accurately as I could, the Peregrine transports that Moonbase Omega uses. These are the game equivalents to the Eagle spacecraft in the TV show.

Sources

For reference I used the following sources:

Moonbase Alpha Technical Notebook: Published by Starlog in 1977, this contains blueprints and designs for all of the fictional tech from the show.

The Catacombs: A super detailed fan site for Space 1999.

I’ve made a PDF version that can be used as a handout for players – Omega99_Peregrine (PDF)

Peregrine Transports

Peregrine-Class 50-ton cutters are Moonbase Omega’s main defense and exploration vehicle. There are usually 15 Peregrines ready for missions at all times. They do not have jump drives, but can be ferried by Omega’s one Edari vessel to other systems to carry out missions.

Moonbase Omega has the capability to repair and even manufacture new Peregrines as needed.
