Judgement Day

Suggested Price $3.00

This is a pay what you wish adventure for Cepheus Engine.

The Sonora sector has become a tense place in recent days. Hostilities between the Olonsean Empire and the Ilsunsi Directorate seem imminent. Everyone is on edge as the two sides build up their militaries. Small skirmishes between fleets have already taken place but open war has yet to be declared by the two sides.

Recently a shocking discovery has taken place regarding the nearby unexplored sector. Scientists have found that a wide swath of space appears to be completely cleared of planets on the edge of the Sonora sector. Some rubble and asteroids remain in that space but no planets at all. There are reports, however, which contradict these discoveries. Some of these reports claim that this area was once heavily populated. How could it not be populated so suddenly?

There is another even more disturbing report coming from the border. A strange asteroid like object appears to be moving through space on it’s own power. It has been reported to have changed directions several times so it is clear that it is not just some rogue asteroid. This asteroid has been reported to have been in the vicinity of a world known to be just on the border with the Sonora sector which can no longer be found!

Now it is believed that this asteroid like object has headed into the Sonora sector and towards heavily populated systems.

Scientist John Santos has a theory. He believes that this asteroid is actually a space craft. He does not believe that it is a manned ship because it appears to be destroying worlds without much discrimination between them. Only a machine would do something like that in his opinion. He thinks that this craft is some kind of alien weapon gone crazy. And he wants to put a stop to it before it kills millions of people in the Sonora sector.

Recently a number of war ships from different factions in the sector have tried to destroy the asteroid and have failed. Most of these ships were destroyed but a couple managed to escape to tell the tales. Massive fleets are gearing up to go meet the thing head on. Santos does not believe that these fleets will be any more successful at the task.

He offers a substantial sum for a dangerous mission. Visit the asteroid planet killer in a small craft and place a new prototype bomb where it can do the most good.

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.
