ENTER THE FINAL FRONTIER...
TAKE THE REALISM ONE STEP FURTHER...

Enhance the excitement of your Star Trek campaign with these highly detailed 1/3900-scale starships from FASA. STAR TREK : The Role - Playing Game space battles come to life. Take command of a Federation Starship, a Klingon Battle-Cruiser, a Romulan Bird of Prey, or any other ship models and do battle with your enemies and give your games that added dimension of realism. All ship models are designed for use with the Starship Combat Hex Grid. (blurb from a combination of a few back panel Starship packages)


Starship Miniatures ( 1/3900 Scale )
The first 22 Brass Master Miniatures Sculpted by Ab Mobasher
Produced in 1983, 1984,1985 by Ral Partha(FASA)
Produced in 1986 by Citadel Miniatures (GW: Games Workshop) for the U.K.
Produced in 1988 RAFM (of Canada) Produced them for the FASA Corporation.
Produced in 1988, 1991 Rawcliffe using the same mold bought from the FASA Corporation made pewter miniatures.
Produced in the mid to late 1990's Various manufactures made Resin versions of FASA ships, its unclear if they used the FASA molds or used the ships themselves to make new molds.

FASA received H. G. Wells Science Fiction Award for these miniatures.

"Winner of H. G. Wells Award.(Vehicle 1985) Scale;1/3950. 22 Brass masters sculptured by Ab Mobasher in early 80's. Licensed and manufactured by Fasa Corp. of Chicago under licensing agreement with Paramount Picture. Fasa no longer manufactures these miniatures." -Ab

In 1984(Origins 1985) FASA Star Trek Starships won Best Vehicular Miniatures Series of 1984.

In 1985(Origins 1986) FASA 1/3900 Starship Miniatures won Best Vehicular/Accessory Series of 1985. Presented to Ab Mobasher

In 1987(Origins 1988) FASA Star Trek Miniatures won Best Vehicular or Accessory Series of 1987. Presented to Randy Hoffa, and Steve Apolloni.
 



"I understand that there is about 4% shrinkage after each casting. Wish I knew that before making the miniatures because many of the thin sections had difficulty flowing in the spin casting molds. In that process, they make a set of second generation originals and from that, they make casting, therefore more shrinkage." -Ab

To figure out how long a 1/3900 scale ship is in inches, take the stated meter dimensions and move the decimal two places to the left. So a 685 meter long Enterprise-E is 6.85 inches long. That puts a Romulan Warbird out there at approximately 13.5 inches long.

Made of Lead. "They usually use Tin-Lead alloy in the ratio of 40%-60% for best flow rate and details." -Ab
Not painted or Assembled.
Included is a painting guide.(some)

Other Miniature Notes:

  • Gamescience in 1975 made plastic starship miniatures for the game SFB at 1/3788 scale.
  • Task Force Games made lead miniatures (Starline 2200 series) from the Gamescience mold for the game SFB at 1/3788 scale.

Game Rule Notes:
When using these mold injected starships on the actual map hex field it makes it difficult to actually allow the ships to position themselves in close proximity to each other and automatically limits some of the rules of play. The 1/3900 Scale starships are just to big physically to fit into one hex and players tend to omit the option to maneuver closer to a ship. A way around this is to use the cardboard counters when the option to "close in" is used.
Personally I think cardboard counters, flat or 3D essentially allows better play simply because the hex's on the map are too small for the miniatures, and If the hex's where large enough to accommodate the metal miniatures then the map would be to big for convenient use. Except for major events when groups have large convention space to play, a huge map would be feasible.

 


From Stardate Magazine #3
Star Fleet Command, I have recently purchased another of your fine starship models the USS Excelsior and find that it does not fit on the stand properly. The mounting hole in the ship is larger than the small post of the stand. When I place the ship on the stand it tips and tilts. What can I do to correct this?
FASA's Answer; On this model and several others we have enlarged the hole to correct an earlier problem of the small post on the stand breaking off. To make your Excelsior fit better, carefully snap off the small post of the stand by pressing it against a hard surface until it breaks off or by cutting it with a hobby knife. The hobby knife is the better method. I would also recommend that you super-glue the stand into the ship permanently. This will prevent the opening in the ship from enlarging with use and therefore making the fit loose.

The following is a list of the official hull colors by race.

Federation: Off-white or a very light blue-gray (Equine Gray)
Klingon : Silver-grey or light steel
Romulan: Platinum or light gray-gold
Gorn: Light metallic green
Orion: Take your pick. Any colors will be correct.

All of these colors are available from the fine lines of paints by "The Armory" or "Genesis Gaming Products". A painting guide will be forthcoming in a future issue of STARDATE. (This article was never made, but some miniatures eventually did come with a painting guide, usually on the back panel of the packaging)

Books, Manuals, etc related to FASA STAR TREK

This material either totally incorporates and follows FASA Star Trek using the RPG or is material that was suggested or mentioned by the FASA ST Designers for background info or reference.

  • Mr. Scott's Guide To The Enterprise (1984, 1987 Revised) -Paramount License-
    Shane Johnson

    A tech manual for the TMP-STIII movie-era Enterprise. It contains detailed diagrams, and a thorough discussion of ship's systems. There are many photographs of the ship from the films, and many movie  pre-production sketches portrayed as prototype drawings by the ship contractors in the Trek world.

    Ties in fairly heavily with FASA's Star Trek RPG, using the same calendar (TOS in the 2190s and the films in the 2210s) and the names of companies supplying parts (such as warp nacelles).

    The book was written before/during STIV, and takes some early official concepts in a different direction than was later changed or established by "canon". An example would be mounting TransWarp Engines on the Enterprise-A. Something fans where expecting for the next movie but didn't happen....

    Trekplace - Shane Johnson Interview

     

  • The Final Reflection (1984) -Paramount License-
    John M. Ford

    This book actually was written at the same time of FASA's Sourcebook and information was shared between the two.

    (some of the background material given in the player's book is presented as excerpts from An Informal Guide to the Klingon Empire, by J. Ford and E. Tagore. This fictional book was published during the time of the Enterprise's five year mission, and was based on the findings of the 'Committe on the Klingon Estimate, a UFP study group. These excerpts are set off from the rest of the text)

    "The Final Reflection" and FASA introduced a Klingon naming convention based on service. Klingons were given different names when they were born but when they began their true service to the Empire, they changed their names. Those in the navy began with the K (Krenn, Kelly), those in the marines began with an M (Merzhan, Maltz) and those in administrative and support positions, scientists and the like, began with an A.

    The Klingon Genetic Fusion Theory is in FASA's authorized RPG material and in a number of STAR TREK novels, including the definitive Klingon work, "The Final Reflection" by John M. Ford.

    Paramount was pleased enough with Ford's "The Final Reflection" prior to distribution of the book, and had ask to have his unpublished notes submitted to Paramount so that future authors could work from them. Fantasimulations Associates also used these in the creation of this RPG supplement. Paramount accepted "The Final Reflection" as canon (something done with very, very few other novels) and encouraged FASA in there decision to base there view of the Klingon Empire on it as well as the series episodes. It was based solidly on accepted canon and Paramount's plans AT THAT TIME. (prior to TNG when Klingons and everything about there story from the beginning changed drastically)

    Among some of the material used in STIII are the manuscript by John M. Ford, The Final Reflection  and FASA's The Klingons Supplement.

 

  • Star Trek Concordance (1976, 1995 Revised)
    Bjo Trimble

    This book was used by FASA during the making of the RPG.

    The A-To-Z Guide to the Classic Original Television Series and Films

    More than 400 illustrations and covering all 79 episodes of the original series, the animated series and all six movies. A Lexicon, Star Trek vessels with their parts and sections, Astronomical References, an Actor cross-reference.

 

  • Spaceflight Chronology (1979)

Product Printing/Release Order

The idea of this particular list is to help sort out the relevance of RPG info in the books and to find revisions, since FASA indicated the latter printings and material are the correct information when certain areas of the RPG are redone, such as history, world information, corrected rules etc...

This list currently is inaccurate, Although it provides the overall order it does not provide order within each year. Any Help with this list would be much appreciated - Its difficult to align these correctly.

How to help:

Copyright: Books are typically printed in the previous quarter from when there released. Say if they where printed in the 4th quarter of the year, they are normally copyrighted with the following year date. So if a book is released in the 1st quarter the book may have been printed in the previous years 4th quarter. But this isn't always the case.

Publication Date: This date would only show when the book was released. But it doesn't necessarily mean the book was printed before another book that may have been released latter, but in most cases this is true.

ISBN: These numbers usually can show the overall printing order of the products, but due to delays the ISBN number may have been obtained prior to the book being complete. Most ISBN searches don't have all the books listed and tend to show either a false release date or the last release date. So there not so reliable.

FASA Price: The last segment of the ISBN has the price of the book such as FASA1000 for $10. If you examine the initial release price and compare it with a later printing you may find the FASA price has risen indicating a new printing of the book.

In Book Text: Some of the books have text indicating a following product will be released after another. This is helpful information.

Catalogs/Order Forms: These are of importance to tracking printing order as well. But become less important the further the years progress and don't always show when a book was re-released.

Reprinting: Some of the books where reprinted and re-released, sometimes with some errors corrected or text added, in a few cases this has happened such as with the Starship Combat Games like the STCS which seen atleast two different versions without any indication or warning on the books that they have been revised. Atleast one known section of the STCS had text removed in latter prints, presumably by mistake.

Mag Reviews: Usually there the same month as when the book was published, perhaps a month after.

FASA Printng Schedule: The Best source, but this probably isn't available.

 



Unpublished Material

Here's a list of material mentioned by FASA (or other), either in a Mail Order Form, A Catalog or in one of the rulebooks. Some of this material was scrapped, unfinished, abandoned or wasn't approved by Paramount. This list now also includes magazine articles that never seen print or public publication.

2003 Star Trek Starship Combat Game - This was listed with the old STIIISCRPG game description, but pictured as above. Remember that FASA didn't use the new FASA logo until sometime in the last quarter of 1985.  Listed on a FASA April 1985 order form with an ISBN# = to the current STSTCS. This looks like a fluke in their order form because fasa was still selling there STIIISCRPG game, and its not listed again until several order forms/catalogs later. Listed in the FASA Fall 1986 catalog with cover art and title on cover with an ISBN# 0-931787-06-8.

Again just FAS2003 Star Trek Starship Combat Game was also listed on the order form for 89-90 with an ISBN# = to the current STSTCS. Again this is the STCS.

The Story of the Original Enterprise-D Blueprints - as told by Phil Broad of The Vault.
The Original Enterprise D Plans By Ed Whitefire
The ship was designed by Andy Probert who would also work with Ed Whitefire on the original set of interior plans for the "D", which are presented for the first time (2005) anywhere.

Phil Broad: "It was sometime during the first season of Next Generation's run on on TV that I mentioned in passing to Ed that "someone" should see about doing plans of the new Enterprise, like the old Franz Joseph deck plans of the ship from the original series. Ed replied "that gives me an idea" and the rest is history."

Ed contacted Paramount Studios and eventually came in contact with Star Trek Art Department staff member Andrew Probert who listened to his idea. Andrew thought it was good and they agreed that Ed should do the "official" plans for eventual publication. It would be up to Ed to not only create the drawings but to find a publisher as well. This would prove to be no small task, the drawings would take two 1/2 years of effort to design and draw and the search for publishers was not easy either. In the end the gaming publisher "FASA" was given the contract to publish and distribute the plans under their existing license with Paramount for Star Trek related products.

As Ed got going on the project some of his original pencil layouts would be displayed at the last "Equicon" science fiction convention held in Los Angeles and interest from the fans seemed reasonably high. After two years of effort and uncounted trips to the studio to confer with Andrew Probert, Rick Sternbach and Mike Okuda, the plans were finally ready for publishing. Ed had them duly copyrighted and all seemed well.

It was at this point that fate intervened when it was learned that FASA had let their license with Paramount expire and they could no longer publish the plans. Ed began to cast about for a new publishing house and it was during this process that he learned that Rick Sternbach had agreed to the Pocket Book offer to produce plans of the ship. Ed now had to watch as all his work was cast aside so someone else could publish the "official" plans. There proved to be little that Ed could do to stop the other project as by this time his friend Andrew Probert had left the Star Trek Art Department.

The new plans seemed to borrow heavily from Ed's work yet did not incorporate many of the design features that the ship's original designer Andrew Probert had intended. Only Ed's drawings do that.

Now, after more than ten years, Ed has agreed to make his plans available for free via the "Vault". For the first time this gives fans a chance to see the "Enterprise D" as it's original designer intended. The copies posted do not do justice to the level of detail found in his full size originals but they are generously provided by him to you, free of charge here on the internet.

Original Plans Available Here:

For those of you who would like to obtain printed copies of his full size sheets, Ed has also agreed to sell custom drawing tubes which will feature a free full size copy of his plans. These plans consist of 13 sheets, 22x34 inches in size. The purchase price of Ed's drawing tubes will be $35 including shipping and handling and may be ordered by contacting Ed Whitefire at this e-mail address. Ed is still accepting checks and money orders for these drawing tubes. (As of December 17, 2010 Ed said he's back online and selling these prints.)

------- Enemy Contact: Bridge Alert - (never made)  This may have been the "Command and Control" Rules intended to be made as a separate product, or perhaps as a slightly different spin on said rules. Here's the lengthy description:
This role-play supplement was designed to accompany these rules, giving a full system for role-playing starship combat. It takes a completely different approach to starship combat than the Starship Combat Game(STIII) described above. Like other role-playing situations, this system does not use counters, mapboard, or panels; instead, it helps the gamemaster describe the starship combat, concentrating on the characters' skills and telling a story.
  In this system, the player characters behave as they did in the TV show. They maneuver the ship, arm and fire the weapons, raise and lower the shields, use sensors and communications, and react just as they would do on the bridge of the Enterprise. They choose the maneuvers that will allow the to close with the enemy or hold him at bay, evade his fire, or even flank him. They decide how to power the ship, and they choose the weapons to arm and fire, the shields to power, and the sensors information they want to get from the enemy. To help them, the players have simulated computer displays giving starship data, and graphic representations of the sensors displays that show the relative positions of each ship.
  The game system helps the gamemaster judge the effects of the players' maneuver choices, and it gives a detailed system for determining weapon hits, damage location, and damage effects. The gamemaster then presents these effects to the players as though they were sensors data. Full information is provided on how the various bridge officers use their skills, with the effects of each Skill Roll detailed.
  This supplement allows starship combat to be played like the other parts of a role-play session - with words. The action takes place in the players' imaginations. Its' main advantages are that it is very quick to learn, and it does not take long to play. Like all role-play combat, the action can be fast and furious, the excitement great. Mentioned in the Second Edition Rule Book - Game Operations Manual pg41, Fasa product #2001

 

---- Starship Combat Book - (never made) One can only assume it was to be some sort of supplement to the STCS since the time of the article was around May of 1989. This was listed in the magazine; G.M. V1N9 May 1989 issue labeled as "Watch out for...look out for..."

Stardate Manuscript "The Wanderers" (unpublished) - FASA ST adventure called "The Wanderers". An adventure that was intended for publishing in Stardate Magazine - not a bonafide FASA corp adventure.

Space Gamer / Fantasy Gamer #89 - Mentioned in Space Gamer #88 March/April 1990 that "Star Trek RPG" is coming next issue. I don't think this issue was ever printed.

 

Project notes that never saw print - On an old web site of Guy W. McLimore he announced that ".... in the future will appear some of our notes for projects that never saw print, including the Star Trek adventures produced by Guy and Greg as RPGA tournaments." - Guy W. McLimore. The author is now looking for these articles.

 

Thorns of a Silicon Rose - by Michael Todd. It was made for the FASA Star Trek game and was to be included in the Challenge #78 magazine, but that issue(#78) was never published. The author is now looking for this article. He can only assume its packed away in storage. If he runs across the actual manuscript he'll let us know. Heres his description:
It used the TNG continuity and featured the Enterprise with a few crew members such as Worf and Riker being mentioned by name. The Enterprise picked up a scientist from one of the deep space stations, DS7 if memory serves, to deliver her from the planet she had been doing research on to a starfleet science vessel. This scientist had discovered on this outer rim planet a silicon-based lifeform, simplistic, unitelligent, it could communicate in rudimentary terms via emitted light with other members of its spieces that it existed in a colony-like relationship with. Well, the sample of this lifeform escapes its container and finds it way into the Enterprise's computer system where it begins to replicate. The organism while not intelligent by itself, when working in series with millions of others like itself it formed a group consciousness that was sentient. The problem was this scientist couldn't see the bigger picture, since this colony organism covered most of the surface of this planet, she could only see only small part of it.
While the organism spreads through the system various malfunctions occur. I think I had a list (or maybe a table) or possible malfunctions. I do remember something involving the holodeck going haywire and a roboting maintenance arm going crazy in the hydroponic gardens. So eventually the cause of the problem is found and it is discovered that this lifeform is sentient and first contact has to be made then and there in order to coax the organism out of the enterprise's systems so it could be returned to its homeworld.
Meanwhile, in keeping with TNG's typical dual plotline structure, the scientist would be renewing a romantic relationship with one of the pcs while all this is going on. I can't remember what the backstory was on this, if there was much of one. The rather silly title of the adventure refers to this romance and the fact that the silicon lifeform vaguely resembled a crystalline flower.

 

Far & Away Magazine #3 (unpublished) -  unknown FASA article(s). Number Three was finished & with Pacific Rim but it never came out. I still have a copy of it, though..." -Dale Kemper

 

Rumored Completed Manuals: There was rumored back in 1990-91 that FASA actually finished 3 or 4 products and sent them to Paramount for approval. 2103 ST:TNG USS Enterprise Blueprints, 2228 Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, 2229 Star Trek: The Next Generation - 2nd and 3rd Year Sourcebook, and the fourth manual is unknown, there may have been only the three.

 

Its also said that FASA had more miniatures for RAFM to do. Paramount had gotten the Enterprise-D -- which separated! -- and the Ferengi Marauder, and they were working out the (scaling issues) of the Romulan Warbird when the license got pulled.

 

About manuscripts and FASA Trek material: Apparently the mechanics of the FASA star trek game where sold to an individual that was apparently going to re-release star trek as a different game theme, its been atleast a decade since this was first brought to light, with no new game. Apparently he poses the unfinished works of the FASA star trek team, but the extent of what the FASA Star Trek team has completed is unknown. Heres some info from and about Eric Smith:

-Eric Smith, Marketing Director for FASA Corporation  4-11-2001 "I have obtained from FASA Corp. the license to the Game Mechanics for the old ST: Tactical game and the entire line of products associated with ST including the RPG. While I cannot use the Star Trek name as that and the information contained in are the property of Paramount. The Game Mechanics are the property of FASA Corp. I plan to relaunch the system in a space based universe and look forward to doing so in the next year or so." 

-FASA Marketing Director Joins Lone Wolf Development  3-28-2001
March 27, 2001 - Lone Wolf Development announces today that Eric J. Smith joins the company as Director of Sales and Marketing. Eric has served as Marketing Director for FASA Corporation over the past year and previously ran Ariston Productions, a marketing, convention, and consulting service to the gaming industry for more than a decade.

Eric is currently managing the closing of operations at FASA Corporation and will be working in a part-time capacity for Lone Wolf Development while that effort completes. Eric will take over day-to-day duties as Director of Sales and Marketing in April.
