Watermarked PDF + Softcover, Standard Color Book

You've learned how to defeat your enemies on the distant borders of The Empire, commanded powerful warships and fighter wings in battle, and lived to tell your tales in the officer's lounge. But none of your accomplishments would have been possible were it not for a plethora of supporting troops, supply tenders, repair vessels, and starbases along your route to the enemy's front door. Time to give them their due.

Task Force Zeta Volume Two: Fleet Auxiliaries brings these forces and more to your tabletop space battles. This volume includes:

  • Numerous optional rules, including boarding combat, ramming attacks, combat/long-range scouts, docking, towing, explosions, shipboard fires, and more!
  • New classes of vessels, including starbases and ground installations, transport ships and shuttles, Exosuit and Mecha-based fighter squadrons, and Oversized vessels that have no theoretical limit in their size and capacities during their construction.
  • Six new weapon characteristics that expand the capabilities of existing weapons classes, Unconventional Weapons to conduct specific forms of electronic attacks against the enemy, mine warfare rules, and Organic ship hulls to represent bio-mechanoid ships.
  • 29 new and expanded systems that can be added to ships of any size, including teleporters, tractors beams, grappling hooks, troop, cargo, and passenger bays, deployment systems for troop transports, and more. A number of new systems are geared towards preparing your vessels for campaign-style gaming.
  • Rules for interacting with planetary bodies, wormholes, jumpgates, and combat in hyperspace (which is always a risky undertaking).
  • Construction section additions that allow players to create ships using all of the new options, keeping Task Force Zeta at the forefront of space combat games with the largest number of possibilities for unit creation.
  • 50 new pre-designed vessels, including a selection of ships from two original forces - the Omani Imperium and the Rikai'ishi'i Empire.
  • Six new tactical scenarios that include pirate attacks against convoys and Q-ships, weapons testbeds, salvage operations, starbase assaults, and more!
  • Complete rules for running a tactical campaign game, including a fully-developed campaign scenario with attendant map. A blank star sector map for creating your own campaign game set-ups is also included.
  • A section devoted to Joint Strike Operations, allowing players to run planetary invasion scenarios by combining Task Force Zeta with our popular Strike Legion tactical game series, and a complete Joint Strike Operations scenario featuring the Omani vs. the Rikai'ishi'i in space and on the ground. New Strike Legion Data Cards to represent a portion of these forces are also included.
  • A secondary download containing the basic background information, Data Cards, and ground unit formations for the Omani and Rikai'ishi'i from Strike Legion: Skunk Works.

Note: Task Force Zeta Volume Two: Fleet Auxiliaries is not a complete game. You must own a copy of Task Force Zeta Volume One: Ships of the Line to use the materials contained herein. Players wishing to use the enclosed Joint Strike Operations rules must own (at minimum) the Strike Legion Main Rulebook.

Files Update 4 Feb. 2012: Editable blank PDF Data Cards are now included as a separate download.

Found some confusing bits in the Joint Strike Operations appendix regarding Spinal Mounts:

Both the description of Mass Drivers (page 61) and the "AoE and Avoidance Adjustment Table" (page 65) seem to imply that Spinal Mounts are a Characteristic added to a weapon type, when it is actually its own distinct weapon type.

The first one can probably be ignored, and in fact be used in the second instance to fill in the blanks (treating the Spinal Mount as a Gauss weapon to get the adjustments).

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.
