I picked up the first 2 sourcebooks and will pick up the rest eventually
am a space combat game addict and must have everything that comes out,
I'm always looking for more, hint, hint ;)

Quad-S (Strategic Starship Skirmish System) is hex based.  Each race has
their own sourcebook and everything you need to play is in that
Each race is different with weapons, defensive systems, and movement
by race.  Some will use a simplified energy allocation, some don't deal
energy at all (like FT).  Each ship has a diagram similar to FT which
up a full page (but this could be reduced).  Screens can be alabative
FT2.5 armor or limit hits like screens.  It all depends on the race your
playing.  The author pushes fair play and no cheese.  There are no
construction system currently available.

Overall complexity is around FT to a bit more complex, depending on the
race.  Sourcebook quality is pretty good quality Desk top published with
color cover and b&w interior with a spiral binding.  Be the first one in
your area to buy a copy and get some price breaks.  If you get all the
sourcebooks it would get pricey (6x$15) but you don't need them all to

If anyone has specific questions, let me know,
