From publisher blurb:

Hello Explorers!

Welcome to issue 27 of the Frontier Explorer. Our new author in this issue is Jerry Boucher, who also drew the absolutely amazing cover image for the issue. The cover is a callback, albeit from the sathar side, of the classic Elmore painting that graces the cover of the original rules. His article looks at the construction and use of the sathar weapons.

In addition to Jerry’s article, we have the continuation of the Thing’s That Go Boom series with a look at the demolitions skill and the various explosives available in the Frontier. We also continue our support for Traveller with an adventure for that game system that has its roots in a sample adventure in the Star Frontiers rules.

We round out the issue with a visit by Jurak Hangna to Lossend for a safari, information on remote weapons systems, some vruskian melee weapons, a look at Spacefleet’s organization, paper minis for the core four PC races, and our usual comics.

The full article list is:

  • Reorganizing Space Fleet
  • Sathar Weapons
  • Things that go Boom Part 3: Expanding the Demolitions Skill
  • Jurak’s Timeon Safari Grazelle Hunt
  • The Hepplewhite Disaster
  • Titian Rising: 2299 #20
  • How Does It Work? Remote Weapon Systems
  • Brass Balls for a Vrusk
  • Things that go Boom! Part 4: More Explosives in the Frontier
  • Player Character Color Minis
  • Escape Run #5
