Storyline Book 5: Distant Shores

Watermarked PDF

"I wept as I read the most recent transmissions, now several weeks old, that the Black Talon team had sent us from Atlantis. Peaceful water, stretching from the sand to infinity. I never thought I would get to see it one day. In a strange twist of Fate, the greed and arrogance of the New Earth Commonwealth may well re-ignite the fire that drove us forward, drove us to soar among the stars. Once this conflict is over -- and I've come to believe we will win, for the freedom of societies across the Gate network -- perhaps I will be able to visit those distant shores myself…"

-- Nicosa Renault

Following in the steps of the original Black Talon team, Terranovan raiders lend a helping hand to their Liberati allies so far across interstellar space. The CEF continues to deploy new and improved technology built in the occupied factories of Caprice, testing it in brutal reprisal attacks in the Helios system. Meanwhile, the Black Talon continues its exploration mission, seeking out allies for the war efforts among long cut-off colony worlds. Unfortunately, the Terranovans soon realize they are not the only ones seeking reinforcement among the far-away stars…

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.
