Nexus #15


For years, through hijackings and kidnappings and savage massacres, the West has been helpless before this bloody foe: the international terrorist. Until now. Now America has Delta Force.

It is 1986 and Nexus #15 has just been released. This issue focused on the Star Fleet Universe, Starfire, and Delta Force. Battlewagon, Duel for Kharkov, Counterstroke in France, East Wind Rain, and 4th Reich also have materials included.

Starfire has a Q&A section for players in the New Empires setting as well as an article of creating a hit-and-run group in that setting. Adding complexity to the New Empires setting are optional rules for planets and moons.

In the historical section, East Wind Rain has an article about its design concepts. Duel for Kharkov gains a new scenario based on the Soviet summer offensive in 1942. An article on Counterstroke in France presents variants for people playing that game. Battlewagon gains another scenario, this one for the Battle of Komandorski Islands in March, 1943. In a category by itself, 4th Reich adds rules so three people can play.

Delta Force is the new game being introduced by Task Force Games. It gains new weapons and equipment. It also gets a new scenario set in Canada.

The Star Fleet Universe section starts with information about the company. It includes a significant article on painting Tholian ships along with Tholian fleet emblems. The shipyard report focuses on Tholian ships. Federation & Empire is introduced. The two-page Academy article is based on Tholian webs and web casters. A page of Term Papers also is included. Rules for energy balance due to damage were introduced. Finally, there was also the inevitable (at the time) collection of addenda.

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.
