Unfortunately, my K-T6 tug is in 1/4000 scale, and I now play the 1/3125 scale.

If I want to haul Klingon pods around, I have to use one of my K-D5 war cruisers as a K-D5H light tactical transport.

At least I have a F-TUG for my Feds.

The Klingons have many ways to fry a cat. I prefer to use an L7 Fast Battlecruiser!!

It is in the UK.

I've printed out the SFB Cadet counter sheet, from the SFC freebee SFB Cadet game files, and using a glue stick, stuck them onto plastic counters. These replace the cardstock ones, that I fabricated a few months ago, on shirt backing card.

Wiz Kids (Star Trek Attack Wing) 1/3250 scale NX class frigates (unpainted) are available on E-bay. I ordered one a few days ago, which arrived today.

For SFB, count phase cannons as Ph3 that cannon be charged, instead drawing power straight from impulse power.  Phase cannon, powered from battery, have Ph3 hit score divided in half and with fraction rounded up.

Torpedoes count as speed 1 drones, with an explosive value of 4.

Polarised hull plating counts as 1 shield box plus any power reinforcing it.

I've just added a Mongoose Orion salvage cruiser O-SC & a pair of Orion light raiders O-LR to my 1/3250 scale models line up. Both are in the SSD Sheet Book #1, which I have.

nice you got a cartel picked out or are toy going to paint them up as freebooters so you can have more varied loadouts?

I haven't decided yet, what to paint them.

Obviously, they show up, post battle, to pick over any wrecks & crippled star ships, like Crows or Vultures. Could make for an interesting SFB or SFC scenario.

Just acquired some more ships, via a 3D model company, that sells on Etsy:

1 x Neptune class (Warp Delta) frigate (ENT era).
1 x Daedalus class light cruiser.
1 x Romulan destroyer (as seen on ENT).

I already have 1 x NX class exploration frigate, made by Whizz Kids.

With some adjustments & additions, to the SFB rules, it should be possible to fight a Romulan War battle.

I've looked around, but found none suitable. I'll probably create my own, based on ENT observations.

In the show:

Disrupters are comparable to TOS versions but are weaker. A Disrupter 1 is compatible.
Plasma cannons draw directly from a ship's plasma grid.
Phase cannons are directly powered from the Impulse reactors and can be overloaded. There is no banked charge.
Missiles (Spatial & Photonic) are basically sub light drones.
Photon torpedoes are only slightly better than the missiles but can be fired at warp speeds & sustain a warp field, briefly.
Shields are obviously not brilliant, maybe 5 boxes for basic shields.
EM polarised hull plating is just SFB armour that can be reinforced with power & can be repaired by Damage Control, like shields.

You could look into the ships in Y1 and Y2
