Welcome to Space Station Zero, a miniatures-agnostic tabletop wargame where you and your friends explore the hidden depths of the ancient station to uncover its darkest secrets... and perhaps survive. Designed to play solo, co-op, or as an adversarial skirmish game, Space Station Zero is created by Adam Loper and Vincent Venturella for 1-4 players.

From the book: "In the heart of deepest space – millions of light years from the nearest system, star, or planet – resides an improbable structure, floating in the silent darkness. Massive and ancient beyond imagination, it sleeps… waiting for wayward travelers to find their new home."

Use any sci-fi miniatures you'd like to explore the massive and mysterious space station you and your crew have found yourselves in after an unsuccessful hyperspace jump. Enjoy a deep campaign system with a branching mission structure and overcome all challenges - and learn the truth of Space Station Zero.

I really like many aspects of this game but the cover mechanic is really bad:
For characters without armor the cover provides just ~17% of average damage reduction (from 0.5 to 0.42 per die).
For characters with 4+ armor the cover provides ~20% damage reduction (from 0.42 to 0.33 per die).
For characters with 6+ armor the cover provides ~25% damage reduction (from 0.33 to 0.25 per die).

1. It's WAY to low to promote tactical gameplay! For comparison - in Five Parsecs the reduction is 67% (within 6") or 50% (within weapon range).
2. The whole "armor vs cover curve" is backwards. If you have no armor it's not worth to use the cover. If you have power armor then using cover makes more sense.

Cover increases your dodging probability by 1/12 flat, irrespective of your armour type. Which I think should be the way to think about it, and use of conditional probability is misleading. Also why should cover be less good for me if I am wearing power armour?

The cover decrease the chance that the hit die will be considered a hit - sure.
But from the expected damage viewpoint it works as I described above.

The cover shouldn't be worse if you are wearing the power armour, but it also shouldn't be better. Currently it works better if you have heavy armour.

If 100 shots come your way, being in cover saves approx 8 of them, irrespective of what armour you are wearing. Armour+cover is only better than no armour+cover in relative sense.

I just got my book in the mail (already downloaded the PDF), and it looks excellent. I recently picked up starter kits for Warcaster Neo-Mechanika, and I'm wondering if you have plans to include rules to use the warjacks (or other big automatons) as part of the crew.

Having a digital version with all the bookmarks, or the PDF being unlocked so that I can add my own; either would be nice.

The physical print is great! Only took a week to get it delivered in Canada, which is fast for PoD.

Just a bit of feedback. As I replied to Dana M's comment, the PDF lacks a proper, granular outline that would allow readers to quickly navigate the PDF.

Instead of the 4 included items in the very barebones outline (currently I only see: cover_digital, SSZ_v2_digital, SSZ_crew_roster and backcover_digital, the PDF could be reworked to have a proper outline with an item per chapter, and especially useful, one index item per challenge!

In such a short PDF this isn't such a big deal, but it would still be useful for those who purchased the PDF and not the print book.

Seconding this.
Please add more thorough bookmarks to the PDF, it would make it so much easily usable. Bookmark editing is locked so I can't even add my own in my PDF reader.

My wife and I are about to start up Challenge 1 and were confused by the victory conditions. It mentions that it ends when all enemies are defeated, but if you don't roll the enemies on the list do you just have to clear the other hazards? I'm assuming the challenge doesn't just end if there are no enemies from the start.

The wording is perhaps unclear, but the authors have clarified in the game's facebook group: the challenge ends when all the *hazards* (not enemies) have been defeated. So if you get no enemies at all, you still have to defeat the hazards, e.g. the poison gas leak and the live conduits. If it doesn't make sense that a hazard must be defeated, e.g. the collapsing floor, then that's not part of the victory condition.

The elite crew is missing numbers for the Combat and Reaction stats. The spots are completely blank. If these are missing in the hard copy, and there's errata by the time that the book comes out in the mail, then I will just add them in.

I see that the watermarked PDF and the black and white book were the same price. Would it be possible to update my current order to include the PDF? I didn't realize that was an option at the time.

For the life of me I can’t figure out what the Damage stat box is used for on the team roster. Any help would be appreciated. I’m sure I am just missing something obvious.

Shield drones, absorb damage 1-4 now if hit with 6 damage what happens, 2 gets through? This is once per turn, (or Cumulative), and how does one destroy a shielded drone or is it just a forever item that once per turn can deflect up to 4 damage?

ps just bought out FLGS of D12s, lol (They are getting more in LOL)

(also bought a Tau Pathfinder team (40k)for Armored SHIPPING crew and a Necron Warriors box ( 40k), for some adversaries),
EVERYONE WINS!!!!!

Thanks again Adam and VV

Shield drones only activate if the total damage is 4 or less, so a damage 5+ attack it would not activate. Once per turn (so all activations) it can reduce a damage 4 or less attack to 0.

Armour, it is barley touched in one example (armor value 4 and dice 2, 3, 6, etc, 2 and 3 don't count), not in its own heading or in combat sequence, so a armor value of say (6) means that only dice with a value of 7 or higher count correct?
(or is it 6 and above) Edge, Armored Suits (6) Thanks for an awesome Game Atom and VV

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.
