Stars & Lasers - The Ships That Never Were...

Watermarked PDF

The supplement is called “The Ships That Never Were” and in the supplement you will find ships that mostly never made it into battle, some never made it out of the designer’s head!!

I must state that anything found in this supplement should only be added to your games if both players agree, these are meant for those fun ‘what if’ type games.

Most of these ships never got past the planning stage and the ones that did failed because of one reason or another, maybe the technology limits meant the fancy new high-speed engines couldn't be made to work, perhaps the computers couldn't be integrated with the ship systems, or maybe the hull just wasn't strong enough to handle the extra mass... for one reason or another almost all of these ships never made it into service.

Weird ships like the ‘Drone’ Warships and their Transports, or the ‘Gyro’ Class Battlecruisers and the Heavy ‘Combat’ Freighters to name but a few.

Also included in this supplement are any special rules needed for you to use these ships in your games along with all their points costs and datasheets etc.

There are also three small scenarios supplied in the supplement to give you an idea as to the type of game you can have with these weird and wonderful ships, because some of the risks associated with using these ships these games can also be great on-the-edge-of-your-seat fun!!

This is the ships that never were…

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.
