Captain's Log #25


The drones slammed home, detonating the Hood into a spectacular antimatter fireball.


Released in November 2002, this issue supports Star Fleet Battles, Federation & Empire, Star Fleet Battle Force, Star Fleet Warlord, and Prime Directive and includes two stories.


HISTORY includes “Return of the Hood” by Dale McKee, in which we find out if the saucer section of the badly damaged Hood can make it back to the Federation. “First Encounter” by Kenneth Jones documents the first recording sighting of the Andromedans. Articles on the Klingon Blue Fleet and the Hydran Pegasus-class ships complete the section.


COMMUNICATIONS continues as a department. This includes service awards, 10 questions, after-action reports, why, humor, ask Admiral Growler, Starline 2400 miniatures, and a guide to painting the Lyran County symbols.


VENUES include Star Fleet Warlord, Star Fleet Command, Galactic Conquest, Play by Email, and SFB Online.


DATABASE remains the place for new SFB material, Battle Group 800, Shipyard Report, new playtest rules and cards for Star Fleet Battle Force, information about GURPS Prime Directive including an article about the Federation and some of the species that live within it, information about Klingon fighters and how to use gunboats in a campaign, and Brothers of the Anarchist.


SCENARIOS include six new ones (SL211-SL216).


TACTICS include Patrol Victory at Origins by Tom Carroll, an article on Souldra tactics, and five pages of Term Papers.


The FEDERATION & EMPIRE section includes Q&A, a scenario, and playtest information about ISC Wars.


The NEW SHIPS for SFB section has 16 new ships including four Hydran Pegasus variants; division control ships (Federation, Klingon, Kzinti, Hydran, ISC, and Seltorian);  Kzinti improved survey cruiser; Seltorian light tactical transport; and Neo-Tholian heavy command cruiser, medium cruiser, heavy destroyer, and heavy frigate.

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.
