The goal of the ConFederation’s “Project Atlas” was to build a dropship for soldiers and mechs. The Meridian variant was the primary focus of the contract - a spherical “tail lander” designed to haul a lance of four massive combat mechs plus the personnel and supplies needed to maintain a forward base in support of the squad.

To recoup costs and expand market share two additional designs were spun off from Meridian and developed for the civilian sector. The first was the Europa-class freighter, which essentially emptied out the mech bays for cargo space and used the excess overhead to double up the pre-existing munitions deck for even more cargo.

The final variant - designated “Pangea” - filled the lower section of the spherical craft with cabins, suites, and dormitories for paying passengers. In both cases, the detachable upper dome section of the ship was left as is since it contained the control and support sections needed for every variant. All variants have cabins for six senior personnel and bunks for a dozen additional crew. The Pangea variant also adds beds for 46 passengers. All versions are at least lightly armed.

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.
