Ships of the Fleet Volume 1: JC


Ships of the Jovian Confederation(tm) is a Silhouette(tm) sourcebook for Dream Pod 9's exciting Jovian Chronicles(tm) science fiction game. This manual covers three common warships of the Jovian Armed Forces ( a destroyer, a patrol carrier and a supply tender ) with precise and detailed texts, backed by extensive illustrations and schematics.

Each ship is thoroughly detailed with full deck plans and layout diagrams. All main locations, such as the bridge, habitation modules, hangars, cargo bays and engineering room are described from both a roleplaying and technical standpoint. In-character texts and comprehensive listing show the crew and its daily tasks, taking the reader onboard the vessels as they defend the territory of the Confederation.

Within these covers you will find:

  • Extensive information and game statistics for the Jovian Alexander-class destroyer, Forge-class patrol carrier and Gagarin-class fleet tender;
  • Complete ship schematics, including deck plans and internal layout;
  • Maintenance schedules, repair times and emergency procedures for all important systems;
  • Tactical combat tips, including Jovian ship tactics.

I consider this book an invaluable resource for anyone interested in running a hard science fiction campaign (it's an in-system, no faster-than-light travel setting). The material presented is highly detailed and useful, and had a surprising degree of [...]

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.
