Captain's Log #28


“Is this a deception or have the Tholians really created such a monster?”

Released in April, 2004, this Stellar Shadows issue (the information is fun, but not historically accurate) supports Star Fleet Battles, Federation & Empire, Star Fleet Battle Force, and Prime Directive, albeit through the lens of Stellar Shadows. From an alternate timeline come the Paravians who destroyed the Gorns and made war on the Romulans, Federation, and Inter-Stellar Concordium.

If you thought the Paravians made the Early Years dangerous, just wait until you see what their new ships can do to the General War. A full range of ships from dreadnought to frigate rampage across the galaxy, returning to the huge mothership only to deposit their loot and reload for further battle.

History includes “Step into My Parlour,” by Loren Knight. Do the Tholians have a battleship or is it smoke and mirrors? Commander Korgan, accused of cowardice, must uncover the truth in order to save his career, and even his very life. A lost Federation memo exposes the real cause of the General War and the law of unintended consequences. And check out the history of these Federation destroyers!

Fifty new ships include bomber barges, Federation multi-engine warships, gunfighter frigates, the four-engine Klingon BC8 dreadnought, Romulan assault cruiser, Gorn base buster and destroyer-dreadnought, Tholian conversions for a D7 and C8, WYN conversions of just about every lost frigate that they could get their hands on as well as conversions of lost Andromedan ships, and Seltorian penal ships.

Workshop of the Mad Scientists includes these concepts: plasmatron, accelerated plasma, plasma launch while cloaked, plasma-B (125 points!), armored fighters, Gorn modular bombers, and warp gearshift.

GURPS Prime Directive discovers the deadly tribble launcher! How much havoc could tribbles wreak when lobbed amongst Klingons?

Star Fleet Battle Force suggests you play a no-limit, Klingon Hold ’em game. Go all in with a pair of dreadnoughts as the High Energy Turn card doubles your drone strike.

Federation & Empire gets all the data it needs from this issue and Stellar Shadows #1.

And of course, there is more in each section than we have space to list.

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.
