So I'm scoping out the Free Wargames Rules home page for possible replacements to DinoWARS! This site is chock full of mini's rules! Some of them look promising for my needs. Useful or not, I like the look of some of the stuff on this guy's page.

It occurred to me last night that Lou Zocchi's Alien Space might be useful for designing more SFBM ships. Alien Space is a relative to Star Fleet Battle Manual that is not set in the Trek universe. I know it contains campaign rules, something missing from SFBM. I believe it also has a ship construction system. The expanded & revised edition of SFBM give notes on using both games together, so maybe I can get some guidance from Alien Space for building stats for FASA and SFB figures.

This is so weird. I just found a copy of Alien Space Battle Manual at Half price books, and saw that it was similar to SFBM, and picked it up. I have a very old mimeographed copy of SFBM ( I think some pages are missing, too.) that I found at a garage sale back in the eighties, in the bottom of the free bin. ( sorry, long story short, played it a few times with my friends, then forgot about it for a decade or two. ) I just decided to do a quick google search for it, and ran across your blog. Too cool! Is there anywhere that SFBM is available anymore? I'd like to get a new copy, as mine was partially damaged in a basement flood.
