Squadron Strike: Axanar, the Four Years War

Squadron Strike: Axanar, the Four Years War

Watermarked PDF



The dawn of a human-led, multispecies civilization was an era of exploration, of seeking out new life and new civilizations. Of boldly going where no one had gone before.

Captains like Garth, Alexander and Travis charted new worlds by the score, leading scientific and diplomatic missions to the edge of explored space. Following the examples of Magellan, Shackleton, and Lewis and Clark, they were scientists and idealists, dedicated to peaceful first contact whenever possible.

It was inevitable that they would run into a hostile power. Under the command of Kharn the Undying, the Empire saw humanity’s peaceful ambitions as a mockery of its own greatness, its constant need to expand to maintain its cultural vitality.

Unprepared for hostile first contact, the human-led explorers and their underarmed fleet soon faced their greatest peril: an invasion orchestrated by a military genius.

Four years of warfare, ending in the Battle of Axanar, shaped everything that followed.

Is this product stand-alone or do you need Squadron Strike?

This product contains a setting book, ship displays and box minis. You will need at least the rulebook. To play in 3d on the tabletop you will need a set of "tilt blocks" and the AVID and RALT cards. The latter two can be replaced by the AVID assistant software which is available on the web and as a smartphone app.

I guess you could as Paramount very, very nicely :( I belive that they are out there but I don't know a current home and I probably shouldn't say here if I did. You could also try asking on the Ad Adstra Facebook group.

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.
