Starship Encounters - Space Wreckage

You come across a ship, floating in space, its crew long deceased and frozen at their stations...

This is an optional list I came up with from seeing a revival of the old Terran Trade Authority books - specifically the Space Wrecks book. A 1,000 year old Imperium should have some debris flying around, I'd think.

This list is just an idea generator - a phrase to give an image or concept of the Space Wreckage. The details should be filled in or modified by the Referee for their own game setting. If you even want more details - it could be used for just background 'fluff'. You could use some of these 'on World' as an Encounter, as well.

If 'Distress' is rolled on a random Starship Encounters check, the Referee can roll 2d6. On a result of '12' (or more often in a Frontier or Post-War area), roll d66 on the Space Wreckage table below, or just choose from the list.
