Star Fleet Battles: Cadet Training Handbook

Watermarked PDF

Take a Seat in the Captain’s Chair! Explore the Challenge of Starship Command!


The Cadet Training Handbook places you in the command chair of the Federation starship Constellation where you will learn the skills of a starship commander in easy-to-manage steps. As you continue through the handbook, the mysteries of the Romulan cloaking device, Klingon disruptors, and other unique weapons will be made clear. You will have the opportunity to command ships from many empires as you enter the universe of Star Fleet Battles.


This PDF includes counters, charts, ship system displays (SSDs), and rules. Remember that starship commanders are not born, they are trained, and the training program begins now.

I had the original hardcopy version of this when it was first published. It's a great way to gently ease yourself into the juggernaut that was classic Star Fleet Battles. But more than that, if what you're interested in is replicating the sort of battles you'd see in the Original Series between Federation, Klingon and Romulan cruisers, the simplified Cadet Cruiser SSDs and streamlined introductory rules make for a great fun game in its own right. Well worth picking up and having a go, if only to see how game design has changed dramatically in the last thirty years.

Scanned image
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.
