From their announcement:
Blasters & Bulkheads utilizes the popular Goalsystem game engine to allow players to run Space Opera skirmish battles in a far-flung future. Build a crew of adventurers and ne'er do wells, or command akill-squad of Galactic Hegemony enforcers. Rules for combat, campaigns, character advancement and more allow for story-driven campaigns, and four pre-built scenarios allow players to jump right into the action. Written for both 15mm and 28mm miniatures, B&B requires only a handful of figures for each side. Complete character creation rules let players build exactly the type of fighters they want, and rules for the mysterious Essence allow for the existence of strange powers. Prime your blaster, draw your energy sword, and battle for the fate of the galaxy's future!
