Background[edit]

Starfleet Wars, a space battle game by Superior Models, Inc. featuring five races: Terrans, Entomalians, Avarians, Aquarians and Carnivorans. It was sold to Gamemasters in 1997, and then was off the market until Monday Knight Productions re-introduced it.[1] Introduced in 1978 and designed by Wayne Smith and Ron Spicer, Starfleet Wars was a dice-rolling simultaneous-action spaceship war game with miniature lead figures.[2]

The Opposing Forces[edit]

There are five different races, each with their own unique fleets of starships.[3]

  • Terran Transolar Federation Navy (TTFN) was manned by the human race
  • Entomolian Imperial Fleet (EIF) was made up of insects
  • Carnivorian Republic Star Forces (CRSF) were the race of big cats
  • Aquarian Alliance Stellar Forces (AASF) came from the seas, such as fish and sharks
  • Avarian United Worlds Navy (AUWN) flew in from the air as different types of birds

Miniatures[edit]

Lead figure miniatures of each ship in the five different fleets are available to supplement game play. These were made in 1:9600 scale with some latitude built in for the small fighters that would otherwise be to small to model.[4]

Current[edit]

Starfleet Wars was purchased by Monday Knight Productions, and re-released under the name Galactic Knights to avoid confusion with the Star Trek franchise.
