Space Opera: Seldon's Compendium of Starcraft 1

Watermarked PDF
$7.00

Seldon's Compendium of Starcraft presents a wide range of Starships. These vessels have been selected from among the most popular ships in common use in the space lanes at each tonnage they represent. A large number of shipyards are also represented by this selection. Naturally, with the wide range of ships shown, and with the size variations required to give the reader a clear picture of the types of craft employed by merchant shippers, no constant scale can be employed with all deck plans. For this reason, each deck plan is accompanied by a five meter scale bar for accurate scale with that particular deck plan.

As a matter of convention the following rules should be followed in reading the deck plans. First, deck number 1 is the top deck and the higher numbered decks are below that deck in numerical order (the highest numbered deck is the bottom deck). Decks can be alligned properly by lining up the hatchways and/or elevators to see how the decks fit together. All nomenclature on the plans is consistent and can be found in the key on this page.

It should be noted that areas designated as recs (recreational areas) include dining facilities and galleys. Such recs will vary in decor and exact layout with the ships within a given class as each shipping line will have unique specifications for such areas. Even two ships of the same class own'ed by the same StarShip Line will have different decor and cuisine in rec areas so as to have a unique character for each StarShip in the line.

The deck plans create a cross section of the ships from a plane running through the floor of each deck. Thus, any turrets on the sides of the ship that are on these planes will be shown, but turrets or hardpoints above the top deck or below the bottom deck will not be shown on the plans. Some weapons systems are only shown by the gunners' couches on the plans for these reasons and reference should be made to the Ship Stats to determine exact number of Primary and Secondary weapons systems.

This is why i really bought SO. The ships, although you can definitely tell they are dated in the design side of things are just too good to pass up. I use the designs provided in this and the other Seldon's supplements in my Traveller campaigns in just [...]

Space Opera was the very first RPG that I bought and it fell apart a long time ago. I love the psionic rules in this game and prefer to use them over other rules - they slot in very nicely. The spaceships in these books are not as nicely drawn as those [...]

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.
