I don't have PD20.

But, in GURPS PD 4E (not revised), it is in Chapter 8 The Star Fleet Universe, pg 163. It is just one page column. It should be in a similar location in PD20. It is after the spa ...

I do want to note that the original question is from three years ago, so I doubt the OP is going to see any of this.

Yup, that's a typo. It should be Turn Mode C.

I will note that this is correct on the ship cards published in Booster 91.

There seems to be two big problems with the Jindos:
1) They just aren't that popular, so there likely isn't sufficient sales forecast to justify putting them out. Particularly if it is done as a sing ...

They are purchased separately. ADB does not link purchase of a hard copy with the purchase of a PDF, so if you want the to Reference books in PDF, they are just separate purchases.

1) Yes, ADD boxes are destroyed by "drone" hits in Damage Allocation. Yes, the "last drone box" can be either one.

2) Even though that step isn't as clear as the phaser step, ye ...

Thank you, that helped a lot.

No, the ESGs will not interact.

Rule (5N2f), which covers ESG Interaction, specifically states that the two ESG-equipped ships need to be in the same or adjacent he ...

I can't visualize this. Can you give me specific hex numbers (they can be representative; their position on your actual map doesn't matter) so I can visualize the setup?

Well, (5M2j-1) specifically states that the shuttle must be launched with the power paid at the "time of launch". So, no, there is no way to pre-pay to convert a shuttle into a web anchor bu ...

The game really hasn't spiraled out of control, but things have been added to it over time. (Really, a game always has to get new stuff, or it will die.) The last product released was Gunboats Attack! ...
