Lightspeed: Cargo Manifest

Lightspeed: Cargo Manifest

ZIP File



The word evokes images of titanic gleaming vessels plying the interstellar void, bristling with deadly weaponry and protected by layers of energy shields, pushing back the veil of the unknown and exploring the Galaxy.

To most inhabitants of the 27th Century, at the height of the Interstellar Era, the reality of interstellar travel is much more mundane. Personal starships allow for weary commutes to the nearby Core World. Cargo starships carry raw materials and manufactured goods. Transport shuttles ferry passengers on regular routes. Grungy industrial starships exploit the untapped resources of interplanetary and interstellar space.

Commercial and personal starships come in all shapes, sizes, and functions. Included in this supplement are a variety of non-military starships ranging from family transports to luxury starliners to flesh out your Lightspeed universe.

Also included is a guide to the military starships of the semi-autonomous Royal Space Navy of Great Britain. Great Britain and Russia both enjoy special status within the European Union. In the past century, Great Britain and Russia each threatened to secede and become independent Galactic nations. Still feeling the sting of the secession of Brazil and the Core Wars that followed, the EU made special allowances to both powers. Today, in exchange for continued membership within the EU and special trade and regulatory concessions, both nations are allowed to maintain independent armed forces and interstellar governments.

Great Britain's Royal Space Navy draws upon the rich history and tradition of it's Terrestrial aquatic ancestor to build a space force that prides itself on its extensive lineage and history of excellence.

At present, Great Britain and the RSN are valued equal partners in the EU. The stability of that alliance relies on a prosperous economy and interdependent self-interests. Should the winds of political intrigue shift, Great Britain would sever the remaining ties with the EU and strike out on their own once and for all. This threat, and the specter of a new cycle of Core Wars that would result, hangs like a Sword of Damocles over the EU and, in turn, every major interstellar faction of the Galaxy.

Lightspeed: Cargo Manifest, by Gavin Dady and Christian Conkle, comes with 34 new starships for Lightspeed, the Fuzion-powered sci-fi RPG, ranging from the smallest work-pod to the largest super-starship.

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.
