The attack came without warning. Oh, we'd known for weeks that they would come, ever since the Organians disappeared, but there was no warning that it would be that day.

 

This 80-page 1991 edition moved the product further toward the current format. This issue is the only one that ever had a "theme" causing a hundred people to ask, every time we do another issue, what the new issues theme is. The story "Ghostlight" (about a Federation fighter squadron) came along with a Star Fleet Battles scenario and a "behind the scenes" write-up, in game terms, of what was going on. The idea was to show writers how to make game counters, rules, and hexes into exciting stories. This issue also included the first-ever "class history" article (about Federation carriers).

Also included for SFB were: eight more scenarios, four new carriers, an example of Federation escort storage, a lot of articles about the Doomsday rulebook with designer's notes on the changes made and why, proposals board, 900-point carrier group battle forces, and Ask Kommodore Ketrick rules questions. The SFB tactics section included the largest selection of term papers published to date, Victory at Origins 1988, and Flights vs. Fighters.

The Federation & Empire section included: new ships, Q&A, tactics notes, an example of carriers in combat, Kzinti carrier tactics, and the Four Powers War scenario.

The generic space map which came with the original issue is not included in the PDF copy.

This was scanned from the best available copy.

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.
