Coner-class Trader


Derided by some as the ugliest and most unreliable ship ever made, the Coner (pronounced as “Connor”) is a common sight in both Earth Sector and Clement Sector.  Despite the many downsides of the ship, the Coner has a dedicated following of people such as the Coner Owners’ Association, who love the much maligned little ship.  The 200-tonne trader is an inexpensive option for many who are willing to put in the hard work and elbow grease to keep the little ship running.  These owners often have their ship colored in loud colors, modified from stem to stern, and with all manner of personalization both within and without. 

The Coner is often used as a “starter ship” and could easily be used by a Referee for a group of new players who need a ship with “character”.   Featuring deckplans by Independence Games’ Starship Guru Michael Johnson and art by fan-favorite Ian Stead, the Coner is presented with loving detail for a ship that is both beloved and hated throughout colonized space.

I've got a soft spot for these boxy little jobbies of a trade ship and they are well suited to the Space Western asthetic of the Independence Games product line. I love the design and feel of these boxy little adventurers ships. Ian Stead & Michael [...]

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.
