In the early days of the Traveller RPG, several small game companies partnered up with GDW, creating a wealth of 3rd party accessories and adventures.

FASA back then was one of those companies. Better known today for Shadowrun (1989) and Battletech (1984), FASA was a small company in 1982.

FASA was surprisingly productive for Traveller (RPG Reference site link), though those accessories are all fairly obscure today.

I’ve got sets 1 and 2 of the Adventure Class Ships series in the shop. Let’s see what’s inside those boxes.

Get all FASA Traveller on FFE’s CD-ROM compilation, in the shop: Traveller Apocrypha-1: FASA and Gamelords

PDFs and image files. Deckplans sheets on the disk are 5100×6600 resolution JPGs. That should be sufficient to create full-size prints at a print shop.

DriveThruRPG has low-res PDFs of the sets: Volume 1 ~ Volume 2
