Cadet Training Handbook Cadet Training Manual

The Cadet Training Manual and Cadet Training Handbook were done as a way to get players into the complicated Star Fleet Battles game system. Generally speaking, the idea was to create "half size ships" which would in theory be easier and faster to play. (For beginners, they are, but veterans report they take the same time to play as bigger ships since the time goes into "planning and thinking" not into counting boxes).

While these products are out of print, they are available as free downloads; see the links below. Given our Print on Demand equipment, the only thing stopping us from returning this product to print is time to do it. (There are just so many ideas and only a finite amount of time).

The half-scale cadet ships live on as the Fleet Scale ships of Federation Commander. Over 100 fleet scale ships (usable as cadet SSDs) are available as free downloads in the Commander's Circle.
