What LB is not telling you is this all started with a $7 acquisition of SFB from the clearance table at or FLGS that he talked me into.  I'll make sure to direct my wife to him when she complains about yet another "stupid" game expenditure.   ;)

^ Just ignore him. He gets this way when I'm right.

That would depend on which one, but mostly we haunt the friendly local game store since they aren't !#$%^&*.

You have two?  I'd be happy with one that sells something with hexes and counters.

There is a fully sanctioned online version similar to VASSAL.  It's not free though.  We need GJK to get addicted to the game so he can develop a VASSAL mod for the it.  :P

He may need a couple of days to do it right - look at the list of ships: http://www.sfbonline.com/ships.jsp

Whoa!!  That's a lot of ships!  Federation Commander wouldn't be so bad to do though it doesn't look like.  I may grab a copy of the Klingon Border intro game set and if I do I'm sure I'd whip up a little VASSAL module for it.  The map would be easy to redraw at least!  ;)

Chatted with Shane - they can get the minis at our LGS. He's looking into getting the rules for Federation Commander from ADB. If not, I'll order it through Amazon.

Those minis look great! But man they are expensive.... :-[

I played SFB to death back in the days when I had no other resposibilities... have been looking at Fed Commander series with interest.
 Maybe if I get some minis and Fed Commander I can get my gaming group to come back to the game table..... just don't tell my wife the cost!!  :o

They do seem a bit pricey.

Try the ones from ADB. I think they're a bit more reasonable and the selection is broader: http://store.starfleetstore.com/merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=S&Category_Code=14
