STAR FLEET BATTLES
The Classic Game of Space CombatStar Fleet Battles is the flagship of the Star Fleet Universe. It is a game of ship-vs-ship combat in the 23rd century. When playing Star Fleet Battles, YOU take command of a starship, squadron, or even an entire fleet of the Federation, the Klingon Empire, or the Romulan Star Empire ... plus over a dozen other empires, each with their own unique style of combat, starships, weapons, technology, and culture.
Out-Shoot, Out-Think, and Out-Fly your opponent in a deep-space dogfight!The Star Fleet Battles game system is based on four principles:
Star Fleet Battles is often maligned for its vast rulebook (400 pages of rules, plus hundreds of pages of charts, tables, ship descriptions,and scenarios). This isn't really fair. Starships can do a lot of things, and the rules cover them all: maneuver, combat, tractors, transporters, cloaks, docking, phasers, space amoebas, planets, asteroids, disruptors, warp engines, ion storms, impulse engines, probes, planet killers, mines, Tholian webs, and more. But the rules are well-organized and you don't have to learn more than a few pages on the first day, and never have to learn more of the game system than you want to. The product line is presented in modules, which you can add when you need a new challenge.
Star Fleet Battles has extensive support via www.StarFleetGames.com, our discussion board, our tournament system, on-line gaming, Starline 2400 pewter miniatures, play-by-Email, and the most accessible designer in the industry. Star Fleet Battles was honored by the Origins Awards in 2006, inducting the game into the prestigious Hall of Fame. New modules appear every year.
