100 Forgotten Sci-Fi Cargoes


Any spaceport, space station or even spaceship with a cargo hold that's been around for some time can accumulate lost and forgotten cargoes tucked into the nooks and crannies. These could be cargoes where, for one reason or another, the original recipient never came for them, or perhaps they were mislabelled and then misplaced. They may have been there for months, years or even decades, and if the place is sufficiently large enough, these cargoes could be sizeable themselves. This supplement has 100 such cargoes for characters to find. Some are junk, some are valuable, some are odd and some are dangerous.

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

Here are some sample results:

  • Container inside which is a single, high-end luxury personal ground transport. The vehicle looks to be completely new.
  • Container inside which is a single, one-person escape pod. The escape pod has clearly been used, even from an outside inspection. If it is opened, long-dried blood stains the interior.
  • Container of 200 sealed cylindrical metal cans. Not one can has a label on it. If opened, they prove to contain fish that smells as if it has been rotting for years.
  • Container of boxes, inside which are clothes that are now seriously out of fashion.
  • Container of children's toys, each shaped like an old-fashioned flying saucer. Each toy can be controlled with a remote; no remotes are stored with the saucers.

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

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.
