Federation & Empire: Combined Operations 2021 Rulebook


Marines and Prime Teams and Combat!

Combined Operations has more rules for Federation & Empire. It is newly improved and updated, having gone through extensive review and discussion during Stratcon 2021. All rules questions from ADB, Inc.’s BBS and Captain’s Log issues have been addressed to provide the best experience for every empire.

This product includes many new concepts (stasis field generators, electronic warfare, light tactical transports, monitors, special units, and Marines), which enhance play value by providing players with new ways to destroy their enemies. New economic factors include commercial convoys, base stations, and PF storage depots. You can take the fight to the planet with ground combat, including special attack forces. Prime teams can help in combat or aid in capturing a ship, along with other abilities.

And there are scenarios galore! Koval’s Lightning has Klingons and the Federation facing off; Thunder over Kzintai has Kzintis, Lyrans, and Klingons; The Hydran Expedition has Hydrans trying to get to Federation territory without being stopped by the Klingons; The Wayward Wind explores what would have happened if the Coalition had attacked the Hydrans first, rather than the Kzintis; Reptilicon Revenged has Romulans and Gorns; Cold Front can be used as a training scenario with the experienced player commanding the Hydrans and newer players commanding the Coalition; Tholian Gambit has the Klingons facing the Tholians; The Late Kingdom explores what would have happened if the Hydrans had to start the General War by reconquering their territory.

You will need the Federation & Empire 2010 Rulebook and various countersheets to use this expansion.

So is this entire book going to be included in the upcoming all-in-one "Warbook" for Federation and Empire?

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.
