Star Fleet Battles Commander's Edition Update #2

Watermarked PDF

Update #1 simply brought the Rev. 0 of Commander's Edition of Star Fleet Battles up to Rev. 1. Update #2 adds substantially to the core rulebook. Ground combat, boarding parties, more weapons, more ships (and names for them), the introduction of the Lyran Democratic Republic, scenarios, and the Bargantine Campaign are all in this update.


D16 Advanced Boarding Parties: Conduct a boarding assault against an enemy starship with this unique intra-ship combat system.


D22 Energy Balance Due to Damage: An ultra-realistic system for assessing the effects of power lost due to battle damage during the turn.


FD10-15: Advanced modular drone construction, Swordfish drones fire phasers at their target, armored drones survive target defenses, Spearfish drones penetrate enemy shields.


FP8-10: Plasma bolts allow a direct-fire option for plasma torpedoes, Type-D torpedoes can be carried by fighters, special racks allow ships to fire Type-Ds for point defense.


Ships: All of the ship data from SSD Books #7, #8, and #9, plus the ships from Supplement #3, plus the ships published in the addenda (in addition to a special compilation of all of the addenda). Also included are three dozen totally new ships never before published. As a special bonus, a complete list of ship names is also included.


Lyran Democratic Republic: A Star Fleet Battles minor empire, the LDR is a neutral power at the junction of the Klingon, Lyran, and Hydran empires.


Scenarios: The 21 Nexus scenarios, which have been completely updated and reformatted.


The Bargantine Campaign: Just after the General War, the former Klingon Satrapy Bargantina attempted to recover the Landfalk planetary system from the Hydrans. The resulting campaign saw the deadly Exodrones fired against Hydran Harriers.


SSDs: Eight SSD sheets from important Star Fleet Battles starships, including three totally new ships never seen before.


Abbreviations: A completely updated edition of Annex #5, listing the abbreviations used in the Star Fleet Battles rules system.


Revisions: The bulk of this material was previously published in various issues of Nexus magazine and Captain's Log. This edition has been completely revised and updated and includes all addenda previously published and a considerable amount of totally new material. Update #2 is more than just a compilation of old material; it is an important new Star Fleet Battles module.


Note: This product adds new play situations, background material, rules, and starships for the Star Fleet Battles game system. You must have Star Fleet Battles Volume I to use this material. Some material in this product also requires other SFB volumes and products.

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.
