    Your quest to find an old Black Hole where two cosmoses meetMay lead to planet Culematter, where PCs rule the streets That s Population Controllers, not Politically CorrectOr Personal Computer, just in case you haven t checked.You may also come to Cliba where the Rain Lord pimps the weather Or a planet where the young rule, and the old are kept on tethers.Scavengers, Macommonians and the Ganzig ConfederationAll ensure your journey homewards won t be short of complications.

    An Adventure into Deep Space12 June 2012 This is the forth Fighting Fantasy book and the first set in a science fiction setting While not the only science fiction adventure that was released, they did tend to be few and far between the next one is Space Assassin, book 12, though there is a horror one, but that doesn t count I must admit that this book was one of the harder ones, and I never managed to finish it when I was a teenager, and this time I had to resort to searching up hints on the An Adventure into Deep Space12 June 2012 This is the forth Fighting Fantasy book and the first set in a science fiction setting While not the only science fiction adventure that was released, they did tend to be few and far between the next one is Space Assassin, book 12, though there is a horror one, but that doesn t count I must admit that this book was one of the harder ones, and I never managed to finish it when I was a teenager, and this time I had to resort to searching up hints on the internet to finish it Starship Traveller is somewhatcomplicated than the others as it has three sets of combat rules one for starships, one for phasers, and one for hand to hand It is also a book in which you don t necessarily play one character, but rather play the captain of a spaceship, and as such you have a number of other characters under your control In all intents and purposes, your character is the captain and everybody else pretty much follows your orders I noted that some have suggested that in designing this book Steve Jackson leaned towards the Traveller roleplaying game, an RPG that is set in the distant future using an interstellar background However, other than the name and the setting, there is no indication in this book that it is the Traveller universe In fact, pretty much all of the book is set in a parallel universe, from which escape is your goal What this book reminded me of though was Star Trek In fact the book seems to be a choose your own Star Trek adventure with dice Having been sitting down recently watching all of the Deep Space Nine episodes I could not help but overlay all of the characters in Deep Space Nine with the major characters of this book, and as such whenever they mentioned the science officer I would think of Dax, and whenever they mentioned the security chief, I would think of Odo Unfortunately the security chief in this book does not have Odo s shapeshifting powers image error This book runslike Citadel of Chaos than the other books in that your travels could take you anywhere, it really comes down to which system or planet you chose to visit If you go one path you could miss some very important information However, the really tricky aspect of this book is that you must locate some co ordinates, and you do not realise it until the end of the book that the path you took is the incorrect path However, I can tell you this, the two co ordinates that you need are both found closer to the end of the adventure than the beginning One can be found at the end of a maze, the other by following the children as opposed to the adults

    Four stars for concept, but 1 for implementation There were a few times when the text was ambiguous Also i was actually able to remember some of the specific star trek episodes they were stealing from and the artwork isn t great.Edit Having now tried it a couple of times it is still pretty cool commanding your own starship crew and being able to beam down and fight space battles etc.

    I m looking at my old, light blue copy of Starship Traveller, reminiscing on the hours of torture it took to actually get close to the completed campaign To this day, I have never actually honestly beaten the game This is by far my favourite Jackson game it lives in my backpack with my pencil case and dice bag This game is great fun because instead of being a lone warrior, you have a medical officer, a science officer, spaceship battle, the works The combat is intense and, at times, palpa I m looking at my old, light blue copy of Starship Traveller, reminiscing on the hours of torture it took to actually get close to the completed campaign To this day, I have never actually honestly beaten the game This is by far my favourite Jackson game it lives in my backpack with my pencil case and dice bag This game is great fun because instead of being a lone warrior, you have a medical officer, a science officer, spaceship battle, the works The combat is intense and, at times, palpably unrelenting Searching the Universe for a solid power source to get you home has never been so frustrating A fantastic read and a lifelong investment 5 outta 5

    Only the fourth Fighting Fantasy gamebook, and already they re diversifying Not just into sci fi, but a radically different approach all round.You play as the starship captain, but also have crew members, from whom you have to select who accompanies you on away missions The ship itself also has stats There is provision for hand to hand combat, phaser combat and ship to ship combat This makes it a very varied beast.Pleasingly, there s less reliance on Luck rolls in this book, instead focusing Only the fourth Fighting Fantasy gamebook, and already they re diversifying Not just into sci fi, but a radically different approach all round.You play as the starship captain, but also have crew members, from whom you have to select who accompanies you on away missions The ship itself also has stats There is provision for hand to hand combat, phaser combat and ship to ship combat This makes it a very varied beast.Pleasingly, there s less reliance on Luck rolls in this book, instead focusing on dice rolls testing against the skill of your various specialists to determine success in endeavours This feels muchappropriate.It s all very Star Trek The transporter technology, command structure and general feel of the alien planets and races all scream Kirk Co This, of course, is no bad thing at all The plot involves the ship plunging through a black hole into another universe, then trying to find the co ordinates and interface details of another black hole so they can return home This involves visiting a lot of planets and interacting with a lot of alien races in an attempt to find the required data and there s a lot of false information and red herrings too This adds a lot of variety to the book, but inevitably means that each encounter is relatively short before you need to rush off to the next It s almost like an entire season of Star Trek condensed into a single episode It would have been nice if this wonderful introductory book could have spawned a few sequels with fewer butcomplex encounters.As these early gamebooks go, this one is a toughie There s a lot of punishment to be taken, most of it from decisions made rather than combat In fact, there s less fighting in this than any other Fighting Fantasy title I ve tried It s very difficult to find the required information and took me quite a number of attempts in fact, I never got EITHER piece of required intel on the several occasions I first tried this book 25 years ago.A unique entry in the series and well worth a go, especially the new App version from Tin Man Games, with its beautiful presentation and lovely new artwork

    This is the first SF book in the FF series and from reading this one j can understand why they didn t sell that well I ve never been a SF fan in any way I was the only kid at school who didn t like Star Wars but I was still looking forward to this as a bit of something different The biggest difference up front is that the rules of combat are not given until you first get into a fight Also, you are I charge of a unit rather than just yourself.Interestingly, even thought his is the 4th book I This is the first SF book in the FF series and from reading this one j can understand why they didn t sell that well I ve never been a SF fan in any way I was the only kid at school who didn t like Star Wars but I was still looking forward to this as a bit of something different The biggest difference up front is that the rules of combat are not given until you first get into a fight Also, you are I charge of a unit rather than just yourself.Interestingly, even thought his is the 4th book I the series, on FF1 kept to only the core FF stats In this one you have stats for your ship as well as your unit.The story of the book is reminiscent of a Star Trek episode and I found it below average overall.I died when I entered a black hole at the wrong angle and I can t see me revisiting this one any time soon

    This gamebook is a love poem to Star Trek As such, it involves exploration of exotic planets and encounters with strange alien species in the pursuit of the correct coordinates that will let the character and his starship find the way back home.It s very naive, and somewhat refreshing, a little bit like watching a very old science fiction movie, but considering the other gamebooks written by Steve Jackson, I have to say that this is probably his least interesting All the others I ve read Hous This gamebook is a love poem to Star Trek As such, it involves exploration of exotic planets and encounters with strange alien species in the pursuit of the correct coordinates that will let the character and his starship find the way back home.It s very naive, and somewhat refreshing, a little bit like watching a very old science fiction movie, but considering the other gamebooks written by Steve Jackson, I have to say that this is probably his least interesting All the others I ve read House of Hell, Creature of Havoc, the Sorcery series, Appointment with F.E.A.R are just that much better than this one Which is still better than any Ian Livingstone gamebook anyways Worth a try, all in all
