Description Edit | History

Federation Space is a strategic-level science-fiction combat game set in the Star Trek universe from the original TV series. Players control an entire fleet of starships for one of eight different races of the Star Fleet universe in an attempt to destroy the fleets of their opponents. In addition to a general melee or "free for all", 26 different scenarios are provided that cover everything from a Klingon rebellion to the death of the Federation.

Tactical combat can be resolved using the simple system included or the more detailed Star Fleet Battles rules, if desired. This gives players the ability quickly resolve those conflicts that are unimportant or heavily weighted towards one side, and use the detailed Star Fleet Battles rules for engagements that are pivotal or very closely matched.

15 Lyran Space 2.0
Updated 01/21/2015. ***Added Strategy Notes and several new cards as well as some corrections to existing cards**** Rules are finalized and a Card Explanation section has been added covering every card in the game (rule clarifications/changes are also covered in a separate Errata file for easy reference). Lyran, Kzinti, Klingon, Federation, and Cardassian fleet organization charts are updated and corrected. Talerian/Tzenkethi and Tholian Fleet cards (see card explanations) are corrected. I recommend just downloading and remaking the cards to be certain you have the correct deck. Also includes counters for this Lyran Space variant.

7 Federation Space Organization sheets
The setup organization sheets are small and hard to read. This is my larger more readable version, with boxes to place the ships in to help sort them.

12 Federation Space Counters Database
List of all of the 2-sided counters originally included with Task Force Games' FEDERATION SPACE, including the values on both the front and rear of the counters (because the game is pretty much useless unless you know both). This document provides all the data you need to recreate lost FS counters. Version 1.1, 5/2011, by Robert Saint John. Updated to include new info and counter count.
