The Future Armada series are still the best ship plans available. Beautifully rendered and full of character. Well worth the money!

As part of my ongoing series of scenarios that involve fighting arctic Nazis, there's the inevitable battle on a flying saucer. In this case, the saucer has been secretly supplied by the Greys to the Karotechia (from the Delta Green role-playing game) after Majestic-12's relationship with them began to fail. And oh yeah, the ship is piloted by an Austrian undead cannibal who looks a lot like Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Where was I? Right, I need a flying saucer deck plan. You'd be surprised how hard it is to find such a thing. Surely modern characters get abducted by aliens and have to fight their way out? Anybody? No?

A search for "UFO deck plans" or "UFO battle maps" yielded nothing. So I had to scan through the deck plans visually until I found this little gem. Don't let the detachable nacelles on either side fool you, the Cygnus is a flying saucer.

Don't let the title "Science Vessel" fool you either. Oh sure, Greys would use a science ship to vivisect cows and random citizens, but if you're planning to use this ship as part of an alien invasion there's a militarized version called the Aquila that will do nicely.

In addition to two different customizable deck plans, there are accompanying plans for a shuttle (both in the bay and empty), black-and-white versions for easier printing, and plenty of color art of the various ships. The real kicker is that D20 Modern stats are provided, and since I seem to be one of the few game masters still hosting a game, it feels like Wolfe made this just for me.

This is a solid buy for a ship that will hopefully be the focus of your campaign, or at least figure prominently for several adventures.

The PDF download comes with (1) book with the stats, history, explanations for the Cygnus Science Vessel shown on the cover, the Aquila (a lesser version of the Cygnus) and a shuttlecraft; (2) a set of color maps for the ships; (3) a set of B&W maps for the ships. There's also a folder with art depicting the Cygnus and the Aquila.

I like the redundancy of maps, which are clearly presented and annotated at a smaller scale in the main book to give an idea where everything is (especially important for the Cygnus, which is the biggest ship); and at a larger scale in the color and B&W versions.

I've picked up another Future Armada product before this one and, having seen the continuing quality of work, would buy the rest as well as soon as I can get started running my campaign!
