Captain's Log #21

Watermarked PDF

The love given and taken from those who faithfully serve to protect our way of life can be seen in the smiles of the children of that society. Only those who have sacrificed to such duty can truly appreciate the art they create. – Captain Huon Yung, Star Fleet.


Released in November 2000, this issue is chock full of good information for Star Fleet Battles and Federation & Empire.


HISTORY includes “The Art of Duty” by Tom Gondolfi, one of the Day of the Eagles stories told primarily from the viewpoint of the Federation. “Mutiny on the Harasser” by Howard Berkey is a story told from a Klingon point of view. An article on Romulan awards rounds out this section


COMMUNICATIONS continues as a department. This included conventions, tournaments, awards, After Action, Command the Future, Notes for Judges, Input Guide, Proposals Board, Why, Ten Questions, and Ask Ketrick. (Some of these were elements that moved to Database in later issues.)


VENUES include Star Fleet Warlord, Play by E-mail, SFB On-Line, and Star Fleet Command.


DATABASE remains the place for new SFB material, including articles on the Omega Sector, Shipyard Report, the Magellanic empires, Battle Force 600, Early Years ships, new stuff for Prime Directive, a developmental history of Hydran fighters, Brothers of the Anarchist, Starline 2400 miniatures, and an example of boarding party operations.


SCENARIOS include 10 new ones (SL183-SL192).


TACTICS include Victory at Origins 2000 by Paul Scott and nine pages of Term Papers.


FEDERATION & EMPIRE include news about the new F&E 2000 rulebook, Rules & Rulings, strategies for F&E2K, Q&A, and proposed new rules.


NEW SHIPS for SFB include Early Years Gorns, tugs and salvage ships, Kzinti and Lyran captured ships, and Omega tugs and pods – 17 ships in all.

Original electronic
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.
