Federation & Empire: Strategic Operations 2022 Rulebook

Watermarked PDF

You Are Going to Need a Whole New Strategy!

Newly updated in 2022, Strategic Operations, an expansion for Federation & Empire, is all about new strategies and new capabilities. Expand your campaign with these new ships, rules, and systems.

Try out these new strategies! Diplomatic teams make treaties, create trade agreements, and maybe avert war. Engineers hasten construction. Survey ships allow you to search for interesting worlds and exploit their riches.

New ship types include those survey ships; small transports to move admirals, diplomats, and prime teams; hospital ships to help devastated planets recover and wounded people heal; sector bases, which are larger than battle stations but smaller than starbases; operational bases, which are mobile bases that can move after being set up; theater transports, which can move tug pods without tying up a valuable tug or light tactical transport; and special mission ships, including small transports, armed web tenders, more Klingon penal ships, variants of the Federation FFB and Klingon F6, more Romulan Kestrels, war dreadnoughts, and more.

Heavily revised in 2022, Rule 549 Auxiliaries and 550 Rule Unbreakable Groups update earlier editions.

Want to try out a new scenario? The huge scenario Maelstrom (675) covers a tumultuous period in the late General War when the front line swung back and forth and neither side could afford to lose. The scenario is divided into six sectors to allow you to play as big a game as you wish. Will the Alliance assume the offensive and drive the Coalition out of the Alliance’s territory? Or will with Coalition dig in and derail any alliance attempt at a counter-offensive?

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

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.
