This classic issue from 1986 includes:
- The fiction story Where Wisdom Fails. (It
fails when your ship meets an enemy vessel with a new and unknown weapon, in
this case, the Hydran hellbore.)
- The Consolidated Addenda for SFB.
- Two classic "captured and converted" ships (OK6 Conquest and TK5 Exile) made their first appearances.
- Eighteen term papers (can you believe that many fit on one page? Modern term papers are so detailed that they come three or four to a page.)
- A revised rules cross-reference.
- Scenarios SL84 through SL87.
- And Campaign U3, "The Hunt for Berol Turquoise."
