Captain's Log #45

Watermarked PDF

Things that happen once in a million years, those things are truly new wonders, unpredicted by scientists who thought they knew how the universe actually worked.

Join us for Captain’s Log #45 and see what happens in a “Race to Confrontation.” It is peacetime and four captains meet on a purely scientific mission to study a new stellar event. What could be simpler? What could possibly go wrong with four warlike captains who have faced combat too many times? Other stories focus on a Klingon police officer who is now a squire paladin and on Ketrick and his cat.

Captain's Log #45 includes fiction and information for all of our games including updates, new ships, information about the Kzintis, a history of the Seltorian ships, and new scenarios.

Star Fleet Battles: This game gains five new scenarios, information on mulakee, campaign updates to account for the Borak, Proposals Board, Ask Vanaxilth, Master Victory by Kerry Mullan, Nicozian Primer, Battlegroup and new ships (Q-ships, Kzinti police cutters, Tholian Home Galaxy ship variants, and Neo-Tholian Milky Way Galaxy variants).

Federation Commander: You will find two new scenarios and scout cruisers for the Federation, Kzintis, Vudar, and Tholians. Patrick Doyle wrote an article on drone tactics. There are also Command Notes by players.

Federation & Empire: This game has F&E Why, Tactical Notes, Q&A, and playtest materials for the Seltorians.

Starmada: Six ships are provided.

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.
