Captain's Log #17


The General War was the largest and longest conflict ever fought in the Milky Way Galaxy. Volumes have been written on every aspect of the war; this brief outline is intended as a general guide for further research into the subject.


When this 96-page issue was published in June of 1995, nobody knew that Task Force was in deep trouble and would soon be reduced to a very dim light before going completely dark. The format of the time was 96 pages "plus something" and the something in this issue was a sheet of extra tournament counters.


HISTORY includes “A Brief History of the General War,” as well as information about the Galactic Intelligence Agency’s awards, Seltorian rank structure, and the Star Fleet report on Kumerian's Red Fleet.


DATABASE (which became the commo section in later issues) includes conventions, rated aces, Input Guide, Why, Proposals Board, Kommodore Ketrick, After Action Review, Command the Future, several rules examples, Battle Force 500, a scenario workshop, Ten Questions, humor, and a play aid for planetary invasions.


UNIVERSE (which later became venues) includes Arcturians in Prime Directive, new missions for Star Fleet Missions, an article on miniatures, reports on Star Fleet Warlord, and background on artist Dan Carroll.


SCENARIOS includes 10 new ones (SL157-166.)


TACTICS includes information about terrain, information about mine warfare, Term Papers, Victory at Origins 94, and Ask Uncle Ardak.


FEDERATION & EMPIRE includes Q&A, Tactical Notes, a Federation play aid card, the original F&E combat system, Seltorians in F&E, and a scenario about the Eastern Theater.


New ships include fast cruisers for the Federation and Klingons, heavy destroyers for the Kzintis and Lyrans, six cadet ships, and Federation squadrons for new strike carrier group and a new light cruiser squadron.


A special feature was the supplemental tournament countersheet; an image of it is included with the PDF.

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.
