PD One: Federation Sourcebook 1994


The original Prime Directive (called Prime Directive One by some) expanded its horizons with this sourcebook. New character types, new skills, more equipment, new species, and lots of information, especially about the Vulcans and their psionic skills and disciplines. There's even a rundown of the important crew members aboard the USS Agincourt in Y172. You will need a copy of the Prime Directive Rulebook if you want to play the game, but there's lots to be learned about the Star Fleet Universe by simply browsing.

I have just recently purchased the Prime Directive Federation sourcebook. I was surprised by how poor the scan was. I wonder if there is any pride in your work to put out a product that comes off so poorly done. The front cover was full of cracks on it [...]

This is a good book and it's nice to see it available on DriveThru, but... the quality of the file leaves a lot to be desired. While the preview is clear and easy to read, the actual file is very pixelated, which makes the text almost unreadable. Until [...]

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.
