I recommend Aliens: Bug Hunt as a source for 2300AD. Of course, most of the stories are geared towards a military theme (specifically, the Colonial Marines) but there is a lot that referees can mine regarding colonized space, corporate interests and interference, and dealing with highly dangerous species.

I ran a Polaris adventure using the Savage Worlds rules this past February at GenghisCon in Denver.

The heroes are the typical band of people living on the raggedy edge in a junker sub. The heroes meet representatives of the Cult of the Trident at Equinox. They are hired to covertly deliver a trio of engineers to an independent station near what used to be Lisbon, Portugal. Along they way, they have to recover vital equipment from a sunken sub while pirates attempt to waylay them.

I ran the adventure twice and had full tables both times. Everyone enjoyed the setting and the unique aspects of Polaris.

Finding a deck plan of a sub proved to be difficult. I was able to find a small boarding ship that filled in for us.

Firefight at Kilvasten Farm
The Midlands of England and the border country with Wales suffered at the hands of scores of small bands of Islamic State fighters that acted as scouts, scavengers, and death squads. These isolated cells operated independently under a charismatic leader and...
