Future Armada: Drake

ZIP File

Deluxe Starship Designs

Exploration Vessel

Drake is one of three Seraphim-class frigates built by the Terra Novan Theocracy. Captured just prior to launch at the New Albion Shipyards, the ConFederation repurposed these ships for reconnaissance and exploration. Originally built to fullfill a variety of roles, including escort and troop insertion duties, the versatile craft has hangar space for half a dozen fighters and a huge cargo bay originally intended to carry troops and hover tanks.

At 292 feet long, this PL-7 frigate carries a crew of 18 and a complement of six Sparrowhawk-class fighters. Though only lightly armed as a vessel of exploration, statistics and story for a more heavily armed "pirate" configurations are also included. Exploration, reconnaissance, journeys to distant stars - Drake is designed to fill these roles and more.

The .zip file contains the following:

  • Overview
    • 18 page PDF file detailing the ship, interior areas, and crew.
    • Open Game License stats provided for the vessel and crew, as well as the fighter craft and a 'pirate' configuration.
  • Map Book
    • Full-color 22 page PDF file containing complete interior maps.
    • Includes miniature-scale maps for tactical combat.
    • Broken into pages for easy printing.
  • Printer friendly, black and white version of the map book.
  • Miniature-scale composite maps of the ship interior.
    • A 24x60 inch, 150 dpi, color JPEG image of the main deck.
    • A 20x28 inch, 150 dpi, color JPEG image of the other three decks.
  • "Bonus Art" directory with half a dozen rendered images of the frigate and fighters.

Sample documents and bonus art are available at

Like all of the Future Armada ships, Drake is meant to be useful to game masters and players alike. Story, stats, and maps are all easily separated so you can keep what you like and change what you want. If you yearn to explore the uncharted regions of your campaign, Drake can take you there!

UPDATED REVIEW: I've since discovered that the oversized print images are located in the "Art" folder included in the file package. It is nice to know that these oversized print images were actually included with the product. However, I think the [...]

Nice Artwork and very functional. Printing, cutting and posting the design on cardboard was a quick task. The pages lined up very well. We have played on this layout twice already and both experiences were enhanced by the artwork. The background and infor [...]

The best ship deck plans ever, and for five bucks you get a very nice escort or 'pocket' carrier. Very, very nice. I do wish they could include the hangers empty, as there are other uses for a ship like this, but that's just a suggestion. You simply [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
