Spaceship Compendium

Watermarked PDF

Swinging his high-intensity spotlight to illuminate the smooth section of wall they'd been sent to investigate, Marten opened a channel. "Here we are. Looks like some vacuum welding... See the marks on the plate? Fused particulates."

Hemming's lamp joined in as she pulled her Gear to a stop. She raised her eyebrows when she saw the faint marks Marten gestured at. "Doesn't look too serious," she stated. "Will something that minor really affect the Gatedrive?"

The translucent image of Marten's weathered face in her cockpit smiled. "Don't let Di Smit hear you ask that. This is her baby -- this is one of the biggest particle beam cannons ever built. It's almost 300 meters long and 60 wide. This is the hand of God, Hemming. It let humans walk clear across the universe in the blink of an eye. It might be the single most important invention in history... It's why we're out here," Marten glanced towards the entrance, towards distant Terra Nova, adding, "and it's why we're out here. Never take it for granted."

Terra Nova has a relatively small space fleet for a sovereign world in command of its own fate. Nevertheless, in recent times, the personnel and vehicles of this fleet have been called upon to embark on one of the most pivotal, important tasks in the strife-rich history of the human race. Spaceship Compendium I: Terra Nova takes a look at these people, their ships and some of the infrastructure that supports them.

This sourcebook includes:

  • A detailed look at one of Terra Nova's Gateships, the UMFGS Laban Emuros;
  • Spacecraft for both military and civilian operations;
  • Terranovan launch facilities, including an Aurora-class landship mobile launch facility;
  • Detailed deckplans and maps of several ships and facilities;
  • Sample campaign seeds;
  • New equipment and NPCs;

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
