Maybe. Color is expensive, and you either pay a dollar a page for short runs or you pay tens of thousands of dollars for thousands of copies. I don't see us selling thouands of copies of a $125 middle years book.

At some point, we might be able to offer very expensive short runs of color stuff, or sell color PDFs and let you go pay Kinkos a fortune to print and laminate them.


Would those color PDF's be e-mailed directly to Kinkos or would I receive them myself? Since I have a color laser, it's really cheap for me to print out color ships for my own use.

The DDM is something somebody talked me into, the theory being it was the original first DD and that the DD-FJ was a "ready for war refit" that didn't work out as well as hoped and then the DD+ refit came along making it a viable ship.

The MidYear ships are being done on the computer in color (even if Briefing #2 is in black and white) so selling them later as color (print or PDF) won't be any more than an administrative decision. We won't have to do B&W cards over again.

One day, then.. color middle years. I'm signed up for those, however they become available.

Meanwhile, Briefing 2 will have to do.

BTW, both the DDM and the base DD will likely be included in Booster 91, so you can then choose which version you want to fly. Smile

Booster 91 has the DD-FJ, the DDM, DDL, and DDG.

Steve, this is a bit off topic, but while on the subject of the 90-series boosters, you did ask us to remind you about the Freighters booster.

So, consider yourself reminded Wink

Cool beans! The DDG has always been one of my favorite ships.

It will be fun to have "real" ship cards for the "lollipop" destroyer finally. I'm looking forward to this one.

Is the classic Tug also going to be in here (since it's all FJ ships)? If so, will it be one-pod only (like the LTT) or will it have a two-pod card?

The tug is in there. It is set up for "zero, one, or two pods".

About the FJ booster, which I would like to get, will we be seeing the 1" counters for those as well?

Looking forward to getting the Briefing.

I'm wrestling with the counter issue.

What I want to do is to print a sheet of counters and punch them out and put them into boosters 91-95.

Nobody around here likes that. too much hand labor.

Possibility is to include the entire sheet in 91 (raising cost to cover that) or perhaps in Hydran Attack.

Problem is next sheet publication is June, so no booster 91-95 until then if we go with the "punch them out and put them in each booster" idea.

Don't even mention "sell the boosters now and the sheet by mail order later" idea. Minimum print run is 1000 and maximum mail order sale is 200, so we'd lose money, a lot of money. If we cannot move the sheet into the stores, we cannot print it.

Well I always prefer to cut the counters out myself anyway - I'd never expect you guys to do that for me, much as I appreciate what you're trying to offer.

Also don't forget Booster 90 - Freighters! That's two reminders now... Wink
