Tachyon Squadron • Starfighter Academy


Draconis can’t depend on Tachyon Squadron forever; it needs its own fighters and its own pilots. That’s you! 

Two weeks ago you graduated from basic flight training. You know how to fly a starfighter, but now you’re standing at attention on the flight line in a run-down docking bay at the far end of Draconis Station, your flight suit still clean and your lieutenant’s bars still shiny, a canvas duffel bag of belongings at your feet, and a veteran pilot yelling at you about how she’s going to turn you into a finely honed weapon capable of defending your homeworld against all comers.

Starfighter Academy is a supplement for Tachyon Squadron. It requires Tachyon Squadron and Fate Core to play.
In this book you'll find:
  • A short campaign (4-5 sessions) for new recruits going through Starfighter Academy
  • Rules for creating a new Starfighter Trainee
  • NPCs to bring the Academy alive as well as guidelines for bringing characters from your Tachyon Squadron campaign into play
  • Rules for Emotional Consequences
  • Rules for bringing the Academy to life, including rival trainees, course challenges, and free time.
  • Rules for "hops"—training engagments where the trainees can show off what they've learned and jockey for position as best in class
  • Graduation!
Welcome to Starfighter Academy.

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.
