The Embattled Trek (Classic Reprint)


VintageCollection.pngPrecis Intermedia brings back this classic board/miniatures game. Originally published in 1977 by Wee Warriors, The Embattled Trek was created during an era without today's advanced software and print services, making indie publishers of the time truly special. 

From out of the black void, two silent fleets deploy. They meet in battle to decide their disputed rights to a small but important section of the galaxy. 

As a captain aboard one of the armed fighting ships of the Confederated Planetary Systems, you stand ready with your top scientists, engineers, and crew to meet the finest of a newly-contacted Empire. Facing an enemy with more-powerful weapons at short range, it is your task to use the best advantages of your individual ships to negate those of the Empire. 

The Embattled Trek represents tactical level play of ship-to-ship combat between the forces of two space powers. Due to the novel combat system using subtractive percentages, the game cannot be counted as won until the last of the enemy ships is destroyed or disabled. And simultaneous plotted movement provides a clean-playing, fast game, where one mistake can cost you your fleet. 

Two sizes of counters are provided to allow for hex-map play or use in tabletop gaming. Three-dimensional ships may also be used with these rules. 

This piece of gaming history is a must for collectors, old school gamers, and those looking for a fast-playing starship combat game. With the original on the extremely rare list, this classic reprint of The Embattled Trek has been remastered for a clean print, and is readily available at a low cost. 

Requires a set of percentile dice and a six-sided die.

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.
