A rules upgrade for 1889 that is essentially plug and play with existing 1889 materials.
Space 1889: is Frank Chadwick’s registered trademark for his roleplaying game of Victorian Era space-faring. Leagues of Adventure is the rpg of Victorian Adventure by Paul Wade-Williams. This article is presented under Fair Use and is intended to enhance the popularity of both works. Both Leagues of Adventure and Space 1889 are required to make full use of this article.

Being able to run existing adventures with a modern set of rules has been a long held desire of many.
The obvious choice is to convert to an existing thoroughly tested popular set of rules rather than creating a whole cloth. The ideal conversion would be able to use existing adventures and supplements with almost no work. The best approach would be conversion for smallest rules units (such as attributes, skills, etc) so that any existing rule can be translated. The Ubiquity system is well suited to this purpose because it has similar sets of attributes and skills to 1889 and these are assigned values within similar ranges. For the most part converting pre-existing NPCs and adventures should be just a matter of translating the names of the attributes and skills into the names used in Ubiquity.
