Blazing through the galaxy in a gleaming ship, our intrepid heroes desperately struggle to outrun the ruthless Scape Pirate Captain Zartok and his crew of celestial scallywags! While they manage a daring escape, the party finds themselves out of fuel and adrift in a sea of stars. With few options, the crew lands on a mysteriously quiet mining station to refuel and repair. But when a religiously passionate group of robots meets them at the airlock, the mystery begins! Where is the Human crew of the station? What is the enigmatic organism at war with the robots? Does the Mainframe really store the robot’s Digital Gods? Our heroes’ search for the truth has only begun, but they better hurry, for Captain Zartok is on their trail!

Sure, the robot stats are a little sparse, but so are all the NPC's. He simply gave them all equal treatment. But I see this as an opportunity for the GM to adjust the power level of the adventure, coming up with the skills and equipment to account for it. This also allows for some flavor adjustment. He provided a lot of room for referee creativity and as a result gives plenty of room to using it simply as a sandbox. I have never considered the maps and chits an essential part of the game. They are merely visual guides, not at all necessary to playing the game.

I don't think he wrote it to serve any serious contribution to canon, which seems clear when he gives special attention to describing the setting. There is no reference to any SF planet or villain races. I think he simply wrote something he wanted to write and sought to make it fun, incorporating the SF races in a different universe. He clearly didn't take himself too seriously. I think some people need to do it that way.

Not a bad adventure but not really what it claims to be. It says its a Star Frontiers adventure and has some of the pictures showing Dralasite, Vrusk and Yazirians. The NPCs stats are also given in SF form. There are some creatures given in SF form. But that is where it ends.

None of the background given matches any SF canon. Four out of the five NPCs are robots and they are not given in SF robot form. The NPCs are also only given a basic stat line with NO secondary stats and NO skills. Probably the worst is that there are no maps, deckplans or floorplans of any kind. One of the main features of SF was the combat system and the grid movement on paper with little chits. This is no where present and really needs to be for an adventure to be an SF adventure.

As a side note the Publishers claim this is to save the GM time by having an adventure ready. It kinda fails here to in that there are alot of suggestions on how to play the adventure but a real lack of details. Besides no maps, there...See more

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.
