This is my first post on the forum. Yay!
Anywho… I am not sure if it was posted/brought up on the previous incarnation of the forum, but I was hoping for some clarification. I recently got the core rulebook (this past Christmas to be exact), and I have been looking and finding several alternate character creators to the official app. The official app allows you to create ships of the line like the Akira throughout the three timeframes, but looking at the small craft section in the core book it is unclear.
Do you simply take what is listed for the small craft, or do you go through the entirety of the creation process for Starships. (Picking the spaceframe, then mission profile, etc.) I am merely curious what was intended as far as this is concerned as I am attempting to decide which way to go with my game once I start GMing for my group (hopefully) within the next few months. I would like to play the game myself, but as I am the only one currently with the core book I will probably be running it until the group is comfortable enough for someone to take over to allow me to focus on playing it.
