Vessel Compendium #1


Vessel Compendium 1: Adventurer Class

Deep in Carlisle space, the Indus transport "Drachma" has just disgorged its mining shuttle. Swift, silent, the small craft picks its way through the asteroid field, sweeping the rocks with neutrino streams as it searches for valuable ore deposits.
An anomolous reading skips over the sensor display.
The shuttle operator contacts the Drachma's captain; "Josko! You won't believe this, but I've just picked up a life form. Human! He's free-floating in the middle of the field. No constructs register. He's all alone."
" Out here? Alive!" comes the disbelieving voice of the captain. "The last Provincial vessel mining this strip shunted out eleven decadays ago." The transport's crew silently contemplates their alternatives. "Bring him in. We'll revive him in Sick Bay and find out what's going on."
Nestled within the space suit, an alien presence awakes. . .

Silently plying the trade routes and smuggler's lanes of endless space are unique vessels-the Adventurer Class. These privately owned merchant ships, yachts, and small freighters deliver goods far into the Backnet, seeking exotic ports of call. Whether factory models or field conversions, new craft or veterans, legally operating or dodging the authorities, Adventurer Class vessels typify the free wheeling spirits of rogues and princes all along the Frontier and deep within the unregulated sectors of the Imperium.

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.
