0-hr: Talarion



Years ago, Project Quicksilver developed the Mercury prototype as part of a Human/Cyntek joint venture to blend the best technologies of both nations. The result was an elegant ship with impressive abilities, but one within which most human crew were not comfortable. Recently the engineers of the New Albion Shipyards were given the task of “humanizing” the design. Capitalizing on the lessons learned with the prototype, they rebuilt the craft using purely Terran technologies and redesigned the interior along the lines of more standard ConFederation ships.

The endeavor to rework the Mercury prototype was dubbed “Project Hermes” and the result is the Talarion-class of starships (named for the winged sandals worn by the god). With a focus on technology and ample science facilities, this class of ship is well suited for research and exploration duties. She is decently armed and very well shielded, but combat is not the goal. With her advanced computer system, the Talarion-class is typically operated by a crew of four, though there are bunks for up to eight spread over half a dozen cabins.

The Talarion package contains four highly detailed, layered PDF files:

• Main Book
   o 10 page PDF file detailing the ship and interior areas.
   o Contains 3D rendered scenes as well as orthographic views of the ships.
   o Includes system independent statistics designed for easy adaption to your game of choice.
   o Background, art, and text are on different layers for custom display and printing.

• Map Pages
   o 15 page PDF file containing complete interior maps and instructions for assembly.
   o Miniature-scale maps for tactical combat with an optional 1 inch = 5 ft grid.
   o Divided into pages for easy printing in full color or printer-friendly black and white.
   o Selectable layers include: grid, black & white version, and optional objects.

• Uncut Map Images
   o A single page PDF files containing a 23x31 inch image of the complete deckplans.
   o elect either a light or dark background (for printing or projection/display).
   o Includes layers for grid, black & white version, optional cargo, and background choice.

Starfinder stats, demo documents, and art are available free at

The first in the “Refit” series of Armada Codex, Talarion is a redesign of the Mercury prototype first presented in issue #8 of Future Armada. As with all issues of the Codex, this product is designed to give you a ready-made ship to drop into your setting and rules of choice - lending depth and detail to your campaign. When it’s time to play, zero hour is ready!

Note: A PDF reader capable of displaying layers is required in order to fully use these documents. The Adobe Reader is a good, free, option.

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.
