From the publisher's blurb:
Frontier Explorer issue 18 is now available. This issue is focused on spacecraft (we have four new ones) and optional rules for the Knight Hawks board game. In addition we have a variety of campaign background material along with the usual Jurak Hangna articles and comics.
This issue took a little bit longer to put together because I had an absolute crazy last four weeks including taking my end of program exam for my Masters of Library and Information Science degree (writing 3 research papers in a single week), and then my day job hit me with having to teach an average of eight classes a week for the last 3 weeks. And my wife was out of town for one of those weeks at a pair of astronomy and physics conferences. Like I said it's been a bit crazy.
In any case, the issue is out and I was quite happy with the mix of articles. I hope you enjoy it. The full article list is:
