*Alternative combat dice (8 new attack dice types to build futuristic and alien weapons, including toxin, web and disintegration)

*Squad traits (A skill system for an entire squad, for quick scenario building)

*Diceless recovery (A non-random method for recovering figures that are Down or Panicked)

*Skill challenges (A simple skill system for roleplay oriented scenarios)

Would any of these work with No End in Sight/No Stars in Sight?

WIth one or two exceptions, they are tied a little too closely to the FiveCore system.
You could adopt some of it, but I don't think it'd be worth the purchase price if you are purely an In Sight gamer.

Do any of these rules apply to Brigade Commander?

Cheers mate
Observation rules were actually intended for Brigade Commander, the Careful Aim mechanic could be applied (to represent prepared positions) and anything relating to the turn sequence.

The Wound and Skill options are more skirmish/role play oriented.

Hope that helps? Brigade Commander is a bit of a unique beast, so a bit more tinkering tends to be needed there.

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.
