About Federation & Empire

Watermarked PDF

Have you ever wondered what Federation & Empire is all about? This booklet is designed to tell you more about the wide-ranging game that so many now enjoy. While you cannot play Federation & Empire with the information you will find here, you can make an informed choice about whether you would enjoy the game.


Here you will find an explanation of what the game entails and a map of the Alpha Octant of the Milky Way Galaxy (including the location of familiar empires such as the Federation, Klingons, Romulans, Gorns, Tholians, and Kzintis, along with less familiar empires such as the Inter-Stellar Concordium and Lyrans). The entire first chapter of the main rulebook is included. It has definitions, a sequence of play, and much more. You will also find a timeline of the Star Fleet Universe that covers the time of the General War. There is an article explaining what generally happens during a typical turn. Finally, to leave you smiling, there is a short humorous story about “The Order of the ‘F’ and the ‘E’” which you, too, could join.

It does a good job of explaining what the game is and does. Very good job on that. Sadly the game is even more complex than Star Fleet Battles. And nearly all about economics. And is of such a scale that whole fleets could just zip by each other in the [...]

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.
