Captain's Log #13

Watermarked PDF

"Service in Star Fleet is two years of boredom and an hour of stark screaming terror."


Captain’s Log #13 compiles the best of the material from the old Nexus Magazine.


"The Glory of the Heroes" is about a Federation base that is overwhelmed by a Romulan attack.


Information (which is now the Communications section) includes Convention winners, Origins reports from 1984-1987, staff awards, Klingon battlecruisers, Why, proposals board, Kommodore Ketrick, Ten Classic Questions, Speeding up SFB, and how BPV works.


Scenarios include (SP1701) Carrier Escorts, (SP80) Attack!, and (SP222) Eradication.


The tactics section includes Term Papers, Frigate Squadrons, In the Heat of Battle, and Ask Uncle Ardak.


The Academy compiles the classroom sessions (the professor asks questions of cadets with names suspiciously like the guys on the BBS) including the first session, Spencer's Gambit, Captain K, Expanding Spheres, Plasmas, Cloaks, Drones, Andromedans, the Coalition Brotherhood Banquet, Sending Gerard Home (Orion Tactics), Webs, the ISC, Mid-Term Review, and The Tactics Board.


Federation & Empire includes Q&A, Tactical Notes, Combat Missions, The ISC in F&E (18 years before they finally got published in ISC War!), and two scenarios.


Captain’s Log #13 supports Star Fleet Battles and Federation & Empire.

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.
