In early editions of StarForce, certain values in this Scenario were
in error. These are corrected below.
[38.0] THE RESCUE MISSION
A Solitaire Game
Players have twelve Star Forces available to lift off 60 Population Points
(each Population Point represents a third of a million humans). A combined
set of two Decimal Randomizers is used to simulate the uncertain time of
nova. The actual
star in question is determined randomly at the start of the game. Players
win the situation by getting all the population safely off the planet.
[38.1] DETERMINING THE LOCATION OF THE ENDANGERED
Pick a chit from the Stellar Randomizer and read the top two-digit number.
Read that number as one of the hexes in the "2000" column of hexagons (the
same column that Sol and 70 Ophiuchi are in).
If the bottom number of the chit is positive trace a
clockwise orbit around Sol maintaining a constant hex distance from it (this
will describe a large hexagonal circle just like the rings of Zulu Limits
printed on the map). If the bottom number is negative. trace the orbit
counter-clockwise. The first tertiary star system that the orbit traces
through (in a two-dimensional sense) is the endangered system. If there is
no tertiary system in that orbit. pick another chit.
[38.2] INITIAL STARFORCE DEPLOYMENT
Four Star Forces at 202010 (Sol), two Star Forces at 2336/+ 17 (Sigma
Draconis), four Star Forces at the endangered star system. and two Star
Forces at the (undestroyed) tertiary system nearest to the endangered star
(in true, distance). If two stars are equally near. use the one which is
also nearest to Sol. All Star Forces are empty. All systems have StarGates
except the endangered star and those destroyed in the First Incursion (see
[38.5] VICTORY LEVELS
Victory is measured in terms of how many Population Points are saved (each
equaling one Victory Point;. A perfect score of 60 Victory Points is a
Decisive Victory over the situation; a score of 50 to 59 is a Substantive
Victory; 40 to 49 is a Marginal Victory. Less than 40 Points is a defeat. If
a Star Force is lost in the rescue attempt (either by Overshift results or
being incinerated) subtract three points from the score. Don't forget to
count as lost any Population Points on destroyed Star Forces at the time of
