I had a bit more success converting S3 into the Star Wars RPG,  it was a
bit too _Hi-tech_ for my tastes in SJ,  and I think, judgeing from the
persoanl weapons available,  that the ships weaponry would have made it
easily ten times the power of the Spelljammer itself (and thus, a bit
unbalancing:)).  Still,  a great module on its own merits (and,  actually,
the only Gygax module I actually considered to be at all worthwhile)

"We look on the same stars,  the sky is common,  the same world surrounds
us.  What difference does it make by what pains each seeks the truth?  We
can not attain to so great a secret by one road..."

Victory from the Senate House" (392 AD)
