I purchased the POD softcover and have to say I was extreme;y pleased with what I got. The scan was crisp and high quality and really took me back flipping through all the old artwork.

Although the game shows it's age a bit it's not as bad as some sci-fi games/books/movies in that more than 30 years after initial publication none of the componenets feel out of place. I'm not typically a huge fan of percentile based systems but I also have to say that in my five sessions so far the game plays smoothly nd isn't bogged down by the trend that percentile games seem to have of starting characters being...sub-optimal.

I really enjoyed this trip down memory lane and can probably see more Star Frontiers in my future.

Overall I think this is a good product but an imperfect reproduction.

My copy of the color hardcover was unfortunately dinged on one corner in shipping.

The cover art is not as sharp as the original product box.

Also, the page alignment is slightly off in my copy, with much of the top margin exceeded by the text for the rule books, and at the bottom for the volturnus module. On a couple of pages the text actually touches the top or bottom edge.

Text is clear and readable with a slight exception for black text printed over a gray fill. In those areas the text appears a little grainy. However, this is likely just the normal result of printing new copies from a scanned image.

The color maps are stitched into the book so you can't just remove them for gameplay.

The hardcover color reprint includes all of the content from the original Alpha Dawn boxed set.
