Colonial Troopers: Knight Hawks
Massive starships and lightning-fast fighters are an iconic element of science fiction. This supplement offers a quick, simple system to resolve ship versus ship combat, and may also be used to resolve battles between ships and characters or even ships and monsters. These rules are in no way intended to be comprehensive, or necessarily realistic, but rather to facilitate imaginative abstraction of starship combat in the most fair and concise fashion possible. A combat could be run strictly in the imagination of the players without miniatures, but this rule set provides enough substance that a more strict tactical game could be run with tabletop figurines on a grid.
This book is designed as a general sourcebook for conducting space combat using the Original Edition rules. However it makes multiple references to the Colonial Troopers core rulebook. Mostly to the character classes. While that book is not absolutely required to use this sourcebook, it can expand its usefulness.
