Star Fleet Battles - Module C6: Lost Empires

Star Fleet Battles - Module C6: Lost Empires hit the presses on Monday. It's shipping to distributors this week, and will go out for mail orders from the 30th. (A larger version of the cover art is shown here.)

C6 looks at a series of "what-if" timelines, in which the Paravians and Carnivons (a pair of SFU-native species introduced to the Early Years in Module Y1) managed to survive into the "modern" era in the Alpha Octant. Historically, both species became extinct in "our" corner of the galaxy (as portrayed in the SFU); but a group of Paravians would later become a power in the Omega Octant, while rumours abound of a "last command" of Carnivon exiles who may, perhaps, have made it as far as the distant Sargasso Storm region.

But in C6, a series of "pre-war" and "wartime" hulls is being presented for both empires, intended for use in alternate timelines (or simulator exercises) in which one or both empires managed to stake a claim in the Alpha Octant for the long haul.

In addition to the Paravian map preview shown last year, a new file shows what the two alternate histories done up for the Carnivons turn out like. (The top map shows a Carnivon realm which had managed to unite and survive long enough to last into the modern era, and includes planets which were depopulated by the Lyrans and Kzintis in the "standard" timeline. The bottom map shows a quantum reality in which two Carnivon Hordes fled into the WYN Cluster, and went on to use it as a launchpad for a fresh round of conquest in Y178, taking advantage of their neighbours' mutual exhaustion in the General War.)

Also, there are sketches done by Adam Turner which show his visions of what a Carnivon and a Paravian would look like. (Adam also sketched his take on a SFU Gorn, and made a welcome point to include traces of the genetic link between that species and their Paravian cousins/nemeses, as it exists in the Star Fleet Universe.)

Re: Star Fleet Battles - Module C6: Lost Empires

On Thursday evening, this week's Star Fleet Universe On Call podcast welcomed Steve Cole, Steve Petrick, and Jean Sexton into the conversation, where much was discussed regarding Module C6, what else may or may not be in the works for ADB, and how much pranking seems to be going on down in Amarillo.

If you want to hear it, it's episode 264 (26 September 2013) at this link.

Re: Star Fleet Battles - Module C6: Lost Empires

A preview file for SFB Module C6 has gone up on DriveThruRPG, including sample SSDs (a war cruiser apiece) for both the Paravians and Carnivons.

For those who may have seen the earlier "raiding" Paravians done for Captain's Log #28, these Paravians have been altered significantly, as these ships are intended for line combat rather than work as raiding ships. (The Paravian CW shown here has no cargo or Non-Weapon Option boxes, and doesn't have the side warp engine issue that affected the CL28 Paravian ships.)

Re: Star Fleet Battles - Module C6: Lost Empires

My own copy showed up in the post yesterday, along with a few other files:



That's large print editions of Captain's Log #46, #47, and #48, as well as a Starline 2500 series Romulan SparrowHawk.

While C6 covers the SFB side of things, CL48 comes with a preview of both "lost empires" for Federation Commander, as well as a Paravian scenario for Federation and Empire (based on the "what-if" setup from Mapsheet P.)
