Space.  It seems to go on forever.

But then you reach the end, drop off whatever you were doing, and head back home to pick up the next job.

Starlight Express is a sci-fi adventure seed generator for delivery adventures about taking things from point A to point B.  It is designed to quickly and easily fill in the blanks in the following sentences:

You have been hired by [employer] to [pick up/deliver] [cargo] [to/from]
[destination]. Along the way, [unexpected event]! But watch out; [thing you
weren’t told]

With only a quick bit of work on the tables, Starlight Express can generate one of over 1.5 million unique adventure permutations!  Here's a few seeds generated with it, to give you a taste.

You have been hired by a government official to pick up a businessperson in a rush from an uninhabited asteroid.  Along the way, you get caught in a meteor shower; evade the rocks!  But watch out; the businessperson can't legally enter your home port.

You have been hired by a noble, royal, or other upper-class elite to check out the map to a natural hyperspace lane they found.  Your destination is a volcanic planet.  Along the way, pirates attack you, trying to steal the map!  But watch out; someone else with claim to the map (legitimate or not) is chasing you.

Look at all the possible adventure built into these seeds; what are you waiting for?  Take a trip with the Starlight Express!

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.
