Hark back to the days of  Battlestar Galactica, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, and Space 1999 with Vintage Space. Back when villains were cruel, heroes were dashing, robots made silly sound effects, and they all had feathered hair.

Vintage Space is nearly a retroclone of one of the most influential RPGs of that era- the one that used d100 and had players portraying fleet officers exploring the ultimate frontier. This game is more than a clone, though. It distills the essence of the original rules in order to make play go faster. In that sense, it’s more of a spiritual successor.

The tone of this game is optimistic, with violence always portrayed as the least-desirable outcome of any situation. We’re eager to explore this universe with you, and we have many adventures getting set up to share.

So after looking through the book, I never came across a skill base list (or is it the ones in the role section only?), Korrin's I'm guessing are Space Orcs or something, it was never described, a list of example passions would be great for PCs as well, a Star Corp ranking system maybe and there was no character sheet designed. Not to nit pick, but yah, it would be nice to see some improvements.

Why in Pulse weapons, is the (normal) Rifle the only one that has no Stun?

On page 7 it's said that there's a character sheet at the back of the book, but I don't see one in the document. Is there a link to get one, and by chance would it be form-fillable?

so it's not a d100-based System but a d20-based system?

Right. Streamlined for equivalent probabilities, but with fewer dice rolls.

The description compares it to an old system that used D100.... Are you saying it is similar to ICE Spacemaster?

More like a certain FASA game. It uses a d20 now, tho.

Do you mean Star Trek? I'm sorry but not all of us are old enough to remember RPGs from the late 70s/early 80s so your veiled references to whatever system you've retrocloned aren't very helpful in determining whether or not to buy this.

Yeah. It's usually just called FASA Trek.

As a publisher with his own retro-clone of a long out-or-print game, I can tell you that Drivethru is really sensitive about violating trademarks, so us retro-clone producers are not allowed to straight up say what we're retro-cloning or they might take our product down. I had to be very indirect in all my language in order for DTRPG to approve it.

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.
