Thanks for sharing.

I like the general concept, and the use of playing cards is interesting.

Seems to me there should be some hull points too though, as well as perhaps other systems in order to make life a little more interesting and to add some drama to games, e.g. life support is out, sensors or fire control are disabled, crew casualties, etc.

Still, it seems like a great starting point for quick games.
