    Not in the list, but my favorite manual was Star Trek: Klingon Academy on PC, that thing was more of a book than a manual, with detailed specs on every ship in the game.

    Hard to tell its size from the pic, but its massive. It's available for download at http://www.replacementdocs.com/download.php?view.7827 and look at that, its a 30 MB download. HUGE.

    I'm surprised that the Elite manual didn't make it in there. I liked the novella (not sure if they count) and the manual was great even having depth in that they talked about stuff that wasn't even in the game, like generation ships.

    The Lords of Midnight was another great manual.

    Always loved Microprose for their documentation. I played a lot of F19 Stealth Fighter and that game is almost useless without the maps and keyboard overlay.
