Download or read book The Starfleet Survival Guide written by David Mack and published by Simon and Schuster. This book was released on 2012-09-18 with total page 192 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Standard issue for all Starfleet Officers, this vital tool for space survival covers everything from space suit leaks and hotwiring a tri-corder to hostile alien encounters. Paying particular attention to the importance of initiative in situations where available technology is malfunctioning, The Survival Guide is broadly divided into the following sections: understanding alien technology; dealing with alien wildlife; modifying federation technology; and encountering temporal anomalies. There is information on essential Federation emergency equipment, and various extreme escape and survival scenarios are accompanied by actual accounts by legendary Starfleet heroes of their own dramatic improvisations. The whole is illustrated throughout with explanatory black & white line art illustrations, easy to follow in a crisis -- especially valuable when a reader is stranded on a downed shuttlecraft with only a com-badge and a self-sealing stem-bolt.
