Resting comfortably in the constellation of Tauras in Earth`s familiar night sky, the Pleiades have long been an object of awe, worship, and inspiration. The Astrnomischen-Rechen Institute, a foundation pledged to extend the boundaries of human exploration and knowledge, recognizes their potential and has for years been in preparation for the long voyage to this fabled cache of stars. The vehicle for that mission has been carefully designed and purposefully crewed for the tenuous journey across uncharted stars: The Bayern. A scenario sourcebook for 2300AD, Bayern contains all of the background data needed to run an ongoing campaign of adventures based around the monumental voyage of this great craft. The important crew members are all detailed, as are the ship`s systems, including the computers and the extra vehicular craft used on the Bayern during the mission.
