At a time when Earth faces severe food shortages and recurring threats from outer space, the Interplanet Space Fleet (ISF) plays a vital role in the defence and sustainability of the planet, while at the same time maintaining our quest to explore and expand into the Solar System.
Much of this activity has centred around the ISF’s most distinguished officer, Colonel Dan Dare. He and his associates – Albert Fitzwilliam Digby, Professor Jocelyn Peabody,
Hank Hogan and others – have encountered and successfully thwarted numerous attacks by alien races and individuals, including the infamous Mekon and the Treens from
The ISF continues to play a large part in Earth’s defence network, and has commissioned Haynes to produce this Space Fleet Operations Manual for its personnel, cadets and those interested in the part it has played from our first steps into space to the exploration of the solar system and beyond.
The SPACE FLEET OPERATIONS MANUAL features:
· A personal introduction by the Controller of Space Fleet, Dan Dare.
· A history of spaceflight, propulsion systems and our first steps to the Moon and Mars.
· Fully detailed and comprehensively annotated cutaway drawings of the principal ISF spaceships, space stations and installations, along with many of the alien craft that Space Fleet has encountered to date, by renowned cutaway artist Graham Bleathman.
· Profiles of ISF personnel, and the aliens they have faced over the years.
· Space Fleet history: a guide to ISF’s missions and Dan Dare’s adventures.
Based on the classic Dan Dare comic strip that appeared in Eagle magazine during the 1950s and 1960s, this Haynes Manual is fully authorised by the Dan Dare Corporation Limited.
