Dangerous Interplanar Space Hulks For Your Old School Space Opera


From out of the depths of hyper dimensional cosmic reality  come these 
dangerous passengers of the twilight worlds 
Random Interplanar Space Hulk Encounters 1d10 
  1. A 2 mile long spinning structure of alien steel & girders. The reactor is still leaking as it enters normal space. There are several energy signatures aboard & some very odd life form readings. There are 2 hit point robotic parasites aboard feeding. There might be valuable relics aboard 
  2. A 200 yard former war ship that was decommissioned centuries ago exits unreality & moves into sensor range. The weapon systems are still aboard. The engines barely function but there are organic readings aboard. 1d10 zombies are aboard. 
  3. 1d10 mechanical  space locust husks each 1 mile long appears! From the instrument readings they're dead. The metallic content of their bodies is very valuable. There are however some very odd life form readings coming from them!
  4. An asteroid exits hyper dimensional reality & begins to enter a far orbit. Sensors indicate a 'Space Termite' Hive Ship! The ship is 24 miles long & full of millions of the 2 hit dice monsters! They're might be incredibly valuable cargo aboard though. 
  5. A converted world battle station slowly spins just outside of normal space time & just seems to be waiting for something. The psychic turbulence around it is astounding. There are 3 separate clouds of wrecked ships. Strangely there are metallic shapes that float within the cloud what could they be? 
  6. A Sargonite Gateway Ship spins it's way through several realities at the same time! The beast of a ship over 5 miles long will enter your universe for only 1d4 hours. Do you dare to get on to it & investigate? Who knows where its been & what it has picked  up.   A sensor sweep will indicate that the gate mechanism is still active!
  7. A Dresenian're Plague Ship filled to the brim with over 5 million plague victims exits hyper dimensional reality. The ship is hot & her reactor is leaking. The stasis pods are still functioning but for how long? The plague could spread if a person was exposed. There is no known cure!
  8. The wreckage of an unknown war fleet has been reduced down to a drifting cloud of artifacts. The cloud is moving under its own power who knows what is powering it. What might be found inside?
  9. A comet conceils a deadly secret within. There is an unknown ship within her running on very little power. It is full of life forms & keeps pace with the comet. The ship is 3 miles in length & is powered by an unknown drive
