From Starfleetgames

STARLINE 2500
Our new joint venture deal with Mongoose includes a provision that they are going to replace (over a period of a couple of years) every existing Starline 2400 ship with a new computer-generated design. (We call this Starline 2500, but they plan to market it under another brand yet to be selected.) The first ships will appear in late 2011, and ships will then follow every month or two. This will include some entirely new ships. It may also, from time to time, including special limited-production (minor variant) ships available only for a short time, or as part of special offers.

This is truly exciting news. New production ships will be fancier, and those in the vocal and vociferous minority who constantly complained that our ships were “not good enough for the modern market” will get his wish. Everyone who has an extensive collection can keep it, or perhaps slowly replace it with new designs. (The existing 2400 line could be used for Early Years if you want, or the new 2500 designs could be used for X-ships.)

These ships will be done in resin using 1-3125 scale.

Pro's and Cons as I see them;

- (Pro) I get to field a fleet of Constitution class starships against a fleet of Klingon D7 ships using a game system I like and understand.
- (Pro) A new range of Star Trek influenced minis in resin produced to a high standard of detail (apparently).
- (Pro/Con) An established Star Trek influenced universe to game in with a vast range of potential scenarios and campaign ideas already in place.
- (Pro) An associated version of Prime Directive RPG for the Traveller ruleset which might be interesting.
- (Pro) Support for both from ADB and Mongoose.
- (Pro) I know someone with a load of SFB miniatures
- (Pro) Steve Cole from ADB is nobody's fool and will be pretty sure Mongoose's plans are viable
- (Pro/Con) A guaranteed flood of stuff to get as both Mongoose and ADB like the high volume approach.
- (Con) It's not Trek, not really
- (Con) It's Mongoose, nuff said.
- (Con) I'll have to start visiting the Mongoose forum again.
- (Con) Probably can't really afford the buy in but will anyway.
- (Con) The SFB universe has good things about it but also a load of really dumb stuff.

Anyway, interesting times. The way I see it, i'm in for a rulebook, a Federation fleet and a Traveller Prime Directive rulebook. Then we'll see. Looking forward to the ride Very Happy

Oooooo - I am moistening up already - Kleenex Please!

I really can't see any cons to be honest, apart from it being a Mongoose project - Sign me up!

Talking of which, when are we going to play that Trek ACTA type game? Chilli?

I'm glad you're interested, D. I look forward to wiping the leer of your non-bumpy foreheaded Klingon face :-)

As far as Russ' Trek game goes, working on it at the moment. Look for a subspace message from Fleet Command soon.

The Prime Directive states that I should not rise to that, you smelly, greasy Klingon %*&*!%, and your mother was a Kzinti!
