Starships & Spacemen 2e

Selected Option:

Boldly explore the galaxy in search of alien civilizations! You take the role of a Military Officer, Technical Officer, Science Officer, or Enlisted Man in the Galactic Confederation. Travel in a starship under your command, on missions of first contact, rescue, exploration, and more in a galaxy full of hostile aliens. Try to maintain the tenuous truce with the militaristic Zangid, and fight the Videni who may look like your Tauran allies, but do not adhere to a philosophy of peace and logic.

Design alien humanoids with either "original series" or "next generation" sensibilites, or blend the two approaches! There are 100 forehead shapes that may be randomly rolled when a new alien race is encountered.

This book contains:

Eight player races

Three main classes, with several subclasses

Rules for spaceships and exploration

many alien creatures

...and more!

I would like to see a slimmed down version closer to white box 0ed

This is a very good game, so don't get me wrong when I say this. But there are some errors in the this edition that have not been fixed since 2013. There is an errata document I believe available on the website. I wish they would fix this because there isn't any other light Star Trek type of game out there. Other games are grim and serious space, or focus on other TV shows or Movies (such as Dare the Stars - 1950s comic books, White Star - star wars, or Warp Star - British Sci Fi, other games have too much Soviet Union vs USA in them, and Space 1889 is another time...).

I saw on the Goblinoid Game forums that there are a few errata for this product. Does the print version have the fixed errata or does it still contain the mistakes?

As far as I can tell, and I ordered a copy last year, the errata is still not fixed.

There is a new book coming out written by Paul Kidd that's an adventure/sandbox for the game called the "Lucanii Drift"

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.
