Yep, fondly. A copy still resides on my desktop gaming PC and gets regular play from kith and kin. Comes with the Star Trek TOS cheesy sound effects. Warms my heart to hear it run . . . ;)

Sorry, Doug, my mistake. I was conflating different memories in my previous post; none of which relate to the cardboard game.

The PC game I mentioned is "Star Fleet - Birth of the Federation". It makes copious use of TOS sound effects . . . ;)


However, I fondly remember a long ago time watching Lou Zochi himself demonstrating a beta version of the "Star Fleet Battles" miniatures game in the Fort Hood recreation center. I wasn't a gamer yet back then and missed a chance to join in when it first began.

Anyone remember this one? It seems to be alive and well.

In my teens and 20's my group of friends and I played this game for hours. We jokingly called SFB, "Stupid F#$%ing Battles". At one point we set up a huge battle so long that it took 2 hours just to play the first turn. "All things moving 30 move now" the umpire would call out lol. I remember I used to play the Kzinti a lot with the drone launchers. Our criticism of this game was that they made the Federation too strong by borrowing technology from most of the other races. Fun game
