It's not the most beautiful set of starship deckplans out there, but it is usable, and the price is right.

Brief review: A perfectly adequate battle map for the price.

Detailed review: The cover image is the only other art in this pack. Details like landing gear or escape pods are not present. In fact, while the escape pods are mentioned, they are not mapped out, and there appears to be no way to get to them.

There are brief stats that look like stats from the Cortex system; I'm not very familiar with that system, so I'm just making a guess. There are some minor disconnects between the text. At one point, the ship lists a crew of 2, with single berths, and a passenger cabin with double occupancy. But that double occupancy berth is listed as "Captain's Quarters." Plus, the map places this berth very close to the cockpit/bridge of the ship.

The cargo capacity is listed as 50 tons, but the cargo area of the base model is only about 400 square feet (or about the size of a 2-car garage!). Obviously, this ship is designed for small cargo! Especially since cargo has to traverse an "L" shaped path in order to be loaded. There's also a map for a VIP passenger variant, where a luxurious suite replaces much of the cargo area. Finally, there is a passenger/medical transport floorplan with 4 additional passenger berths and a small medical bay.

The ship would be quite cramped, as is appropriate for such a vessel. Living on the Hornet would be like living in an RV or a sailboat: you can call it home if you have to, but it'll always be a treat to get out and stretch your legs. Especially with all the berths filled.

In conclusion, while there are certainly more elaborate ship plans out there, this does what it's supposed to do. There are a few quirks, but it will work just fine as a starter home for your space-faring PCs.
