This section contains the rules for creating and playing the Federation, Romulan and Earth Starships of the 2150-2230 era. Rules will also be published for building Klingon Ships, and those of other races from the same period.
The Original FASA ship construction manual allows creation of ships from 2230 onwards. The modules available on site extend this back to 2150, and the Romulan War era. The site also contains FASA conversions of ships from that period sourced from the classic Star Trek Spaceflight Chronology, the superb Starfleet Museum website, the excellent Ex-Astris Scientia website, and also some ships built to conjectural FASA designs.

The FASA Star Trek Ship combat evolved through 3 editions to eventually produce the Star Trek Starship Tactical Combat Simulator. Although long out of print the system has recently been sold, in the aftermath of the collapse of FASA, and is due to be re-launched with a new non Star Trek setting. The original can still be obtained from eBay and numerous second hand game (or book) retailers and websites.
As a gaming system FASA split all vessels into one of 20 weight classes. This system did not affect gameplay, but did play a major part in Starship construction rules. The mass classes are as follows:
