2300AD was a hard science fiction role playing game published by GDW. GDW were also behind Traveller, the oldest and most popular science fiction role playing game, and other titles such as Twilight:2000 and Dark Conspiracy. Sadly, GDW folded in 1996 due to financial problems, and their titles have been bought up by other companies. The rights to Traveller have reverted back to the original owner, Marc Miller, and it has been re published by Imperium Games. 2300AD has been purchased by Tantalus Inc. , a computer software company who wish to develop the background but who are not revealing if there will ever be a third edition of the actual game. ( Though they did start work on some computer based conversions of Star Cruiser a few years back ).

Andy Goddard's 2300AD pages
are simply excellent. He's got deck plans for a Kafer Cruiser and some 3D (!) deck plans for
the American "Kennedy" class, which simply have to be seen.
Unfortunately, Andy has decided to remove these pages for the time being after he
was offended by the attitude of some members of the 2300AD mailing list. Hopefully he will restore
them in the near future, or at least let someone else host them. At the moment, this
page muses about the future of 2300AD.
