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.
