"Fire at will, Commander!"

No sooner had Fleet Captain Frederic Antimony spoken these words, than a flash appeared on the viewscreen, and a half-dozen enemy starfighters disappeared from existence. Antimony's crew had learned long ago to anticipate their captain's moves, and almost before the order came down the Indefatigable's powerful laser batteries lashed out with frightening efficiency. A cheer erupted from the bridge crew.

Antimony wished he could share in their enthusiasm and optimism. He knew better than to underestimate his opponent; the battle had been joined, and until it was won, he could not allow himself even a moment's lapse in concentration. And yet, Antimony could not help feeling a little disappointed. He had expected more from his opponent; so far, she displayed little of the brilliance that had forced the Imperial Starmada into this climactic confrontation.

The Fleet Captain betrayed little of this introspection as he turned to relay a new set of orders to his subordinates. Just then, one of the communications officers let out a cry of alarm.

"Captain! Three enemy destroyers are de-cloaking in our starboard quarter!"

Antimony whirled and fixed his gaze on the screen, where the new antagonists were just now coming into view. So, he thought to himself, this will be interesting after all...

Finally, it's here! The long-awaited Starmada Compendium puts everything from the Starmada rulebook and first three expansions into one 176-page volume. All the weapons, equipment, and rules previously published for Starmadahave been dusted off, polished up, and re-arranged into one shockingly-complete book.

But that's not all! It has new stuff, too, like Interdictor Fields, Minesweepers, and guidelines for Solitaire Play!

Starmada is a cool space combat miniature game. It is a good system for playing out battles between capital ships and fighters in the void of space. The rules take a little while to get used to, but about halfway through your first game they should com [...]

If you want to try this game, buy this one. It's a great system that is big on Sci-Fi & Gaming Fun, but without the "Fluff". The graphics and such is a little low-rent, but it makes up for it for the rest. Check out their web [...]

Starmada is a relatively simple to play game with a good amount of diversity in ship equipment and weapons to satisfy most gamers. The action is fairly fast paced, but the multiple combat rolls (to hit, shield and damage) can slow things down. There [...]

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.
