Nexus #16

Watermarked PDF

“We’re here to look for pirates and Romulans and Gorns and anyone else who happens to show up! Our job is to stop them before they can get within detection range of you. Failing that, we have to destroy them before they can report back.”

It is 1987 and Nexus #16 has just been released. This issue focused on the Star Fleet Universe, Starfire, and Delta Force. History of the Second World War, Battlewagon, East Wind Rain, Viceroys!, and Godsfire also have materials included.

Starfire starts with a Q&A section. There is an article for New Empires players that focuses on the Barbarian Wars scenario. “Claw Raffaen’s Fear” by Robert Armstrong is a story and scenario in the New Empires setting.

In the historical section, History of the Second World War has orders of battle to add the Soviet Air Force and the German Luftwaffe to the game. Battlewagon adds information about the Soviet Navy. East Wind Rain has some guidelines for players as does Viceroys!.

In a category by itself, Godsfire has an overview with some strategies.

Delta Force has a whole section dedicated to it. The RPG-7 rocket launcher is added to the arsenal. An article to help players understand how terrorists and terrorism works is included. An article suggests that a new statistic of Recent Experience be added to characters as they continue on from mission to mission. Finally, there is a S.W.A.T. style scenario.

The Star Fleet Universe section starts with information about the company. The two-page Academy article is based on the Inter-Stellar Concordium. A page of Term Papers also is included. The short story “First and Future Shock” by Josh W. Spencer focuses on an encounter between the ISC and the Romulans and there is an accompanying scenario. The Shipyard Report is on ISC ships. Federation & Empire gets a scenario for the Hydran Expedition.  Finally, there is also the inevitable (at the time) collection of addenda.

Scanned image
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.
