PD One: Prime Directive Core Book 1993

Watermarked PDF

The original Prime Directive core rulebook, sometimes called PD1, lets you roleplay in the Star Fleet Universe. Using its own game engine, you could be a member of a Prime Team, the elite of the Star Fleet Operations Corps. This core rulebook codified the many species found in the Star Fleet Universe, listed equipment which can be adapted to most gaming systems, has adventures to run, and includes the Black Eagles Prime Team stationed on the Saratoga. If you are up for a different, well-tested game system, try this!

Prime Directive is a good game to play adventures based on the original Star Trek series. This is not based around The Next Gen or the series that followed. What you get is a interesting and effective system for running games in the Star Fleet Battle [...]

After an initial reading, I am really quite impressed by the mechanics and feel of this game. I am quite surprised that the publisher did not maintain this version of Prime Directive in addition to the d20, Gurps, and Traveller versions. There is much [...]

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.
