Introducing Skunkworks next fleet book ‘Fortress Command' by William Stec! A year in the making, this huge book provides you with SSDs and rule suggestions for space stations ranging from Deep Space Surveillance Satellites, to civilian refueling stations to the huge Star Fortresses used to protect the most strategically important planets. Some of these stations are formidable enough to take on an entire fleet!

Also included are SSDs and rules for bases constructed on planetary surfaces as well as expanded rules for Ortillery. Finally your assault ships will have use for these critically important weapons when attacking planetary targets.

This is the Beta release and we encourage everyone to submit input and play-test reports.

Any and all comments welcome!

I was the author, and Jim Klein was the co-author. Hopefully you guys will like it.

Really enjoyed thumbing through it! Great job.

Unrelated question – was there ever a Klingon fleet book?

Thanks. It was a ton of work. Hopefully it'll help spark some more life into an older game.

Klingons fleet book: I don't think anyone has done one, though I have seem people post SSDs on the Facebook group on occasion.

I did do a "Threat Guide" for my convention games using Full Thrust Lite with some changes, which is kind of a fleet book.

Always nice to see the Full Thrustiverse grow.
Thanks for the supplement the hard work in making this is appreciated.

Cool, thanks for putting this together. Just downloaded it and will give it a proper read later today.
I can't image how much work goes into stuff like this, since I've never actually finished any of the many projects like this that I've started. So again, thanks!

So did anyone else get a chance to look the fleet book over? Impressions or play test results?

We are not worthy. *hangs head low*

Okay, did look it over and thought 'there must be a few holes to fill, but I can't find 'em yet.'

Without actual playtest, did seem proper spectrum to choose.

Play test… *sigh*

Oh, that thanks thing. What they said…

Anyone ever get a chance to try out any of the units from this fleet book?
