Uses in A Space Based Game 

The unstocked Dungeon Map came in handy last night for a quick set of alien ruins on an uncharted alien planet.  The spells might be adapted quite easily to an alien wizard and were actually quite useful for the NPC I used.
The five new magic items were nice for some loot for a change of pace and gave the PCs a bit of a dilemma. Should we keep this stuff or pawn it? They didn't get all of them only two but they're not sure quite yet what's good and what's junk.
he Screams from Jedder's Hole is a solid S&W adventure but not really useful as a space based adventure. However as a standard OD&D style adventure it has some really solid potential. 
The NPC Party of Halfling Adventurers were recycled into a crew of space based adventurers which really threw the party. They weren't expecting a group of halflings to be a problem set of adventurers.
 The article on 
animals as retainers got me thinking about alien animals as retainers and NPCs and is pretty interesting.
The best thing about this magazine was the price tag. Free is always good.
Three stars on this little download for usefulness
