Booster Zero

 

Who the Heck are These Guys?

Can we ask you to keep a secret? The designer and publisher of Federation Commander also created another game called Star Fleet Battles. That game has been in print for three decades and is the best-selling starship combat game of all time. It is also much more complicated than Federation Commander, although some people really like it despite its thousands of pages of rules. That game includes many space empires with different weapons and systems. Until the publication of future Federation Commander products such as Distant Kingdoms, these empires, ships, and weapons are not available to players of Federation Commander. To give you a preview of them (and help veterans of Star Fleet Battles transition to the new game system) we published Booster Zero with one ship and a few weapons from these empires.
