Nexus #9


“A Klingon warship is not something that fights an enemy, but something that happens to an enemy.” – Commander Mizia, DSF

It is 1984 and Nexus #9 has just been released, with an additional eight pages more than the last issue. This issue focused on the Star Fleet Universe and also on Starfire.

There is a list of Klingon ship names. An excellent article on painting battle stations is included. There is also a list of Federation frigate variations and war cruiser conversions for many empires. Origins 1984 had its report. There are the previews of then-forthcoming titles and of course, the Academy.  Term papers and “Why” showed up in this issue. There is a story and scenario by Michael Bennett. Finally, there was also the inevitable (at the time) collection of errata.

Starfire has a good number of articles. The boxed set had just been released and there is an article that explored the changes. The third part of a series of articles on incidents from the first interstellar war shows up. Carrier rules that are new to Basic Starfire are published. Of particular interest is a one-page short story by David Weber. A series of scenarios by Mike Baker look exciting. There is also an interesting pair of articles on the Ophiuchi Association. The Starfire section winds up with an article on painting minis.

Finally there is a preview of the boxed game Musketeers and new torpedo rules for Battlewagon.

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.
