“Artificially Intelligent robots should have rights. You can’t just stuff them in a crate and ship them like cargo. They are sophonts! They deserve to be seated as passengers!”—S4AIE Member

 Hammerhead Shuttle is a single level interior map of a space shuttle. The shuttle consists of a three person cockpit, two passenger seating rooms, ship cargo room, engine room, unisex single person bathroom, passenger entrance room, and navigation computer room with an interconnecting center hallway in two sections.

 Hammerhead Shuttle is intended for use in near to far-future science fiction games.

 Adventure hook for use with this map:

 Do Not Disturb: The group has been hired to fill the role of Space Marshals, guarding the cargo and passengers of the Hammerhead Shuttle.

This is a cover story for their actual mission, as they were hired to protect a special passenger, a female military AI robot that has been malfunctioning. Its friend or foe subroutines have become corrupted. The resulting corruption caused it to unleash a special weapon and resulted in the wounding of an allied human soldier. For the safety of everyone on board, the machine has been deactivated and placed in a containment crate. They are to escort the dormant robot to Planet Eliza where the group is to deliver the container to famed roboticist Professor Galvin Brand who will attempt to repair the robot’s fragmented AI core.

Halfway on the journey to Eliza, some of the passengers stand up and declare they are here on behalf of S4AIE—Sophonts for AI Equality—a group of robot sympathizers. They demand that the robot AI be removed from cargo storage, returned to consciousness, given a passenger seat, and be treated with the dignity of a thinking being. It is up to the Space Marshals to dissuade them out of this notion as giving into this demand could put the passengers and even the Hammerhead Shuttle itself in danger from the military robot’s weapons…

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.
