The Frontier Explorer presents
The Sathar! They have repeatedly invaded the Frontier and their deadly red ships have always remained a mystery. Rumors abound that top secret UPF files exist giving details on sathar ship interiors and details of the sathar culture and military. No UPF official has ever admitted to the existence of this information.
Now, The Frontier Explorer presents to citizens of the Frontier the deck plans of a sathar destroyer. These plans were recently declassified from Starfleet records and represent data obtained from an undetonated derelict ship found drifting since the First Sathar War. These plans reveal the true alienness of these creatures and underscore the terror that these ships should instill in all Frontier citizens.
The Sathar Destroyer Technical Manual is the first of the Frontier Explorer Presents series. The Frontier Explorer Presents series is our collection of special issues and will contain materials that doesn't fit in the magazine format or requires a speical presentation of its own.
This 30 page document contains complete maps and descriptions of the interior of the sathar destroyer, the most common sathar vessel found in the Star Frontiers game. It also includes information on the the philosophy of the ship's design and cultural elements about the sathar to allow game masters to develop similar plans for other ships. While the sathar are specific to Star Frontiers, this ship and deck plans can be easily adapated for use in other game systems.
In addition to the PDF with the ship descriptions, there are two map download files in the Hi-Res Downloads Maps section. These downloads include two sets of full scale maps. Both sets were produced at 100dpi and have a scale of 1 half inch (50 pixels) = 1 meter. The first set has a half inch square grid superimposed on it and is designed to be printed and used for tabletop play with miniatures or the counters provided in the Star Frontiers game. The second set is identical but has had the grid removed to be used with virtual tabletop game systems.
