Site Background

Welcome

This is  redesigned version of the site migrated to a WordPress.com platform. At present the old content is not available in full, but over coming weeks the previous content will be added back into the site along with some new material.

This site’s material  has been compiled by Steve Bacon, with generous assistance from Bryan Jecko and Lee Wood, and with suggestions and feedback from George Recker Jr, Steve Pugh, Terry Shannon and others at the FASA Star Trek Universe eGroup.


Our Mission

Was originally to recreate the missing chapters from Star Fleet’s past for the FASA Star Trek Ship Combat Tactical Simulator game, it has now expanded slightly to try to reconcile FASA’s Star Trek universe with the more mainstream Technical Fandom Star Trek Universe.

Please feel free to comment with any suggestions or feedback.


The Site

This site contains the rules for creating and playing the Federation (and Earth) Starships of the 2150-2230 era. The Original FASA ship construction manual allows creation of ships from 2230 onwards. The modules available on site extend this back to 2150, and the Romulan War era. The site also contains FASA conversions of ships from that period sourced from the classic Star Trek Spaceflight Chronology, the superb Starfleet Museum website, the excellent Ex-Astris Scientia website, and also some ships built to conjectural FASA designs.


The Game System

The FASA Star Trek Ship combat evolved through 3 editions to eventually produce the Star Trek Starship Tactical Combat Simulator. Although long out of print the system was sold a number of years ago, in the aftermath of the closurse of FASA, and was due to be re-launched with a new non Star Trek setting – however after a number of years this is still not available. The original can still be obtained from eBay and numerous second hand game (or book) retailers and websites.
