Nexus #17

Watermarked PDF

The position given for the disabled ships was off their assigned patrol route. Too far off. The possibility of a trap occurred to him, but he could not afford to ignore the message. His Commander’s Oath demanded that he investigate.

It is 1987 and Nexus #17 has just been released. This issue focused on the Star Fleet Universe, Starfire, and Delta Force. Viceroys!, East Wind Rain, and Gazala, the Clash of Armor also have materials included.

Starfire starts with a Q&A section. There is an article for New Empires players that focuses on the large fleet battles and another that examines industrial economic levels. Then there is a pirate campaign against Khanate shipping and forces.

In the historical section, Viceroys! has an article on a different strategy and a scenario. East Wind Rain has a campaign. Gazala gains a scenario (or two scenarios if you consider the alternative victory condition presented).

Delta Force has a whole section dedicated to it. More weapons, munitions, and equipment are added to the arsenal. There is a hostage-rescue scenario.

The Star Fleet Universe section starts with information about the company. Stacy Brian Bartley has an article on how to kitbash a WYN fleet and a painting guide for that fleet. The Shipyard Report is also on WYN ships. There is advice from Uncle Ardak about drones. The two-page Academy article is a discussion of tactics in various situations. A page of Term Papers also is included along with guidelines for submitting them and information about how they are selected. The short story “Brothers” by Mark J. Kicmol focuses on an encounter between Lyrans and Hydrans and there is an accompanying scenario. There is also an article examining how ships take damage. Federation & Empire gets a scenario for the Second Federation-Kzinti War. Tactical Notes make their appearance as well.

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.
