Not Starfleet Battles, but Starfleet Wars:
This starship combat game actually came out before SFB in the late 1970s. It had a pretty stratightforward set of rules, and a line of miniatures for five different factions: Terran, Avarian, Aquarian, Entomalian, and Carnivoran. They used to run advertisements in gaming publications, including The Dragon:
As the name of my blog indicates, I'm a big fan of the game. (Here's the first part of the Starfleet Wars review I wrote.) I've played this game several times, even ran a game at a local convention. Did/does anyone else play Starfleet Wars or have those minis?
Huh. Not only have I never played it, I don't think I'd ever heard of it before today. :-O
