Description:

Asteroid!

Inspired by a GDW board game of the same name, this is a scenario using the Classic Traveller rules.

Capellus-112 is an asteroid research station owned by the Weymouth-Yamamoto corporation. Dr. Smyth, a bio-engineer of some notoriety was conducting AI research on this innocent rock. No contact with the Dr. has occurred in 5 weeks. The Orbital Mechanics department at Stanford reports that the station has been knocked off it’s normal orbit, and is now on a collision course with Earth.

A mission has been launched to intercept the asteroid and determine if it can be set back on course, or diverted to miss Earth-fall. The valuable research must be preserved, and W-Y corp needs to find out what happened before the government intervenes with a more destructive solution.

Your crack team must intercept the asteroid, determine if it’s orbit stabilizing thrusters can be brought online, and most importantly, determine what happened to Dr Suvik Smyth.
