Description:

When the JSS Dauntless vanished in the middle of system tests during its maiden voyage, no one knew what had happened. A radical theory by one of the test scientists resulted in a hasty refit of the JSS Endeavor, Dauntless's sister ship, which was still under construction. Now the crew of the Endeavor are about the test whether this theory is true or not. Will they suffer the same fate as the Dauntless, or will they discover a way to open the galaxy for exploration?

Discovery is the first novel by author Tom Stephens. Set in an alternate universe, it chronicles the challenges and trials associated with the accidental discovery of faster than light travel and humanity's first interstellar journey.

There's a really good story in DISCOVERY, but it seems it was rushed to press far too soon. It reads very much like a first draft; the characters are little more than ciphers, the dialogue is very weak, and the action sequences aren't very well fleshed [...]

This is a good, but not great story. I think the problem may be that one needs to be more knowledgeable about the universe in which it is set than I am. Nonetheless, I read it through and enjoyed what I read. [...]

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.
