Just to be clear, what I mean for this project is the discussion and sharing of non-Frontier/UPF settings that use the basic rules of Star Frontiers.  A homebrew campaign, adaptions of movie or TV settings (such as Star Trek, Star Wars, Firefly, Battlestar Galactica), other games (such as Traveller, Star*Drive, StarCraft), or even literary sources (such as Starship Troopers, the Alan Dean Foster Humanx/Flinx books, Orson Scott Card's Ender series, David Weber's Honor Harrington books).  Anything from the whole of the setting to special rules developed for use in such a setting.  As an example, I will be sharing much of my Starhunter campaign, which uses the SF rules, and some elements from the SF universe, but is a different place and a differen setting from the Frontier.  Any and all discussion is welcome.
Long live the Frontier!

Great idea for a project, Gargoyle. I've had a couple homebrew setting ideas for the SF rules and this will be the perfect place to put them.

People should know that there's a difference between house rules and homebrew settings. I have the House Rules wiki and you have Vistas. Together those projects cover the gammut of flexibility.

I certainly hope so!  I'd seen the House Rules project; the intent here is for the actual campaign/setting.  Hopefully, as more material comes on, people will link as appropriate.  For instance, rules on my new races I'll add to the Races of the Frontier project, new creatures on the Compendium of Creatures, new equipment on... um.... is there a project for that?  Anyway, thanks for the comment!
Long live the Frontier!
