FUTURE ARMADA
Deluxe Starship Designs

CYGNUS
Science Vessel

In the post war era there is a drive to explore new systems and expand the ConFederation while at the same time keeping watch for new or recurring dangers. Towards this end, the scout service commissioned a number of vessels to be outfit for long range exploration and reconnaissance. Cygnus is one of the first such vessels. Based on the standard disc shaped hull of the Orbis line, this model adds a pair of large nacelles to accommodate advanced sensor systems and long range FTL drives. The main hull section boasts the addition of a bio sciences lab and upgrades to the medical and engineering areas to allow them to serve as specialized laboratories as well. There are cabins and bunks on board for up to sixteen crew and passengers.

The Orbis-class is a common hull design by Aves Engineering that has been modified and scaled to serve as everything from gunships to passenger liners. Cygnus, presented here, is a variant (Orbis-6) produced for the ConFederation Scout Service as a long range science vessel. A gunship variant, Aquila (with additional bunks for a dedicated marine presence), is also provided as are two versions of the Novemere-class shuttle typically carried by each ship.

The .zip file contains the following:

  • Overview
    • 19 page PDF file detailing the ship, interior areas, and crew.
    • Open Game License stats provided for the vessel and crew.
  • Map Book
    • Full-color 43 page PDF file containing complete interior maps.
    • Includes miniature-scale maps for tactical combat.
    • Broken into pages for easy printing.
  • Printer friendly, black and white version of the map book.
  • Miniature-scale composite maps of the ship interior.
    • Four poster-sized, 24x36 inch, 150 dpi, color JPEG images.
    • One pair for the science vessel and one pair for the gunship.
  • Art directory with rendered images of both versions of the ship and shuttle.

Sample documents and bonus art are available at 0-hr.com.

Like all of the Future Armada ships, these ships are meant to be useful to game masters and players alike. Story, stats, and maps are all easily separated. Keep what you like & change what want, it's up to you.

As part of my ongoing series of scenarios that involve fighting arctic Nazis, there's the inevitable battle on a flying saucer. In this case, the saucer has been secretly supplied by the Greys to the Karotechia (from the Delta Green role-playing game) [...]

This is a solid buy for a ship that will hopefully be the focus of your campaign, or at least figure prominently for several adventures. The PDF download comes with (1) book with the stats, history, explanations for the Cygnus Science Vessel shown [...]

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.
