For anyone who has them both, what are the differences between the Main Rule Book, sold on its own, and the Pocket Rule Book included in each of the Fleet Boxes?

Thanks.

The PRB is a just enough rules to play with and get by. It is missing 3/4s of the Hardback Rule book. Granted there is not a lot more rules in the HRB.

You lose most of the history and setting fluff as well as Shuttle craft Operations which are almost nonexistent any way.

The PRB only comes with the Fleet List to match the box it was shipped with. One PRB has the Drone Users Feds, Klinks and Kzinti, the other is just the Plasma Races Gorn and Roms. Neither PRB has the Civilian list or the preview Orions and Tholians. The PRB is also missing the senerio, campaign and craft sections .

Very helpful.

Any updated ETA on the long awaited PDF version of the MRB?

After reading all 11 pages of discussion in the thread about fixes to ACTA, I understand why there's not answer to my previous question... Laughing

Not this year. That's not a promise for next year.
