Description Edit | History

Recovery

From the credits page:

ALIEN STAR is a magazine dedicated to Science Fiction Gaming.

This is the first issue of ALIEN STAR magazine with the new format. Our cover drawing by A. Hunter sets the scene for "Recovery", the first of the themes that will run through each issue.

Most, but not all, of the articles, plans and drawings in this issue are based around Salvage and/or Rescue Operations and are slanted towards "TRAVELLER" and other SF Role Playing Games.
