I think the technical combat captain could learn a lot from this book and that the information is practical enough to take away knowledge that will potentially help commanders in STO.
I know I complain about the 'State of affairs' with ST games a lot but this is really a nice step.
Now I just hope we see a re-release of OP so we can all load and play in an easy manner and bone up on some combat before STO.
I recommend it to everyone.
Anyway good stuff all around, I just ordered my 'printed version, but you can download it at a reduced cost. LULU's books are printed well and are quality products and I use them to sell my own book and artwork on.
It's how I think STO should distribute manuals and leave it up to the customer to decide if they want a printed copy or downloadable copy...or none at all and will rely on 'in-game' or online documentation.
