100 Problems to Encounter on a Starship


This is a collection of 100 problems that could occur on board a starship. Most affect the vessel itself whilst others are related to the crew. They range from the annoying to the potentially dangerous, and could be used as a source of problems or adventure hooks or as side-effects for failed handling.

This PDF supports Adobe layers and the page backgrounds and images can be disabled to make printing easier.

Here are some sample results:

  • Potentially hazardous levels of static electricity build up in the ship's atmosphere.
  • Power systems across the ship experience fluctuations.
  • Radiation protection has failed and excessive radiation is leaking into some cabins.
  • Several space suits are damaged and unusable for space work until they are repaired.
  • Several spare parts that are needed are found to be broken.

One page is the front cover, one the front matter and one is ads.

It appears that you're producing new tables almost every day. 1.76 for random AI generated answers. huh?

None of these are AI generated. I won't touch AI. I've been making these tables for years, and I have systems for making them. I only release one day a week.

You realize, don't you, that Azukail Games has been putting these lists out on DriveThruRPG for almost a decade? AI hasn't been publicly available for nearly that long.

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.
