Centaurus Gate is a science fiction theme RPG based on a rebuild of WestEnd Game's Star Wars D6 RPG. While it is primarily inspired by Farscape, it also draws on many concepts presented in other shows such as Stargate. The game focuses on the adventures of a daring crew as they guide their starship into a galaxy far away to explore and exploit (a pioneer theme). Each player's character is a crew member of the starship in question, taking on one or more roles as crew. Blast off into a Science Adventure!

Here is the laundry list, with more notes below:
: The living breathing galaxy of wonder to be explored, the insanely beautiful backdrop for aliens and systems this game. Inverted a bit since Humans technology far exceeds the aliens, but they simply lack resources to fully use it.
: The Centaurus Gate itself, and the gate network that spans the countless worlds of the alien galaxy to be explored and possibly exploited. Inverted since the humans again are likely the most powerful, if they just had the resources they need.
: The pulp spirit of action and adventure for these other worldly exploration stories.

: The framework of what could have been an amazing system, given the tools and techniques of modern RPGs. If you look closely under all the layers of this system, you can see basic ideas from WEG d6 floating around.
