RedInTheMorning, that was my argument as well. There are players who want to play with the older versions, and it's nice to not have IP sitting around collecting dust. So I'm moving on doing something with it. We can't (yet) replace the old counters and maps, but I'm thinking about something else along similar lines.

Does this include the pre-Sky Marshall 2 version of 3rd edition?

(I still have my original ISF book, but not the tactical rules.)

Sadly, we don't have that in electronic format. I'd like to recreate it someday, but I'll need to get a scan of it and then modify it that way. It just takes longer.

scanning an image is fine - I got my copy of Star Fleet Battles Designers Edition for $10 and it's just a scan of the original game. Fine with me, solved the problem of trying to get a copy elsewhere.

The reason we spend a little more work is that the older versions have the original company's information all over them (in this case, Task Force Games). So we change the business information and write a new introduction for newer people who haven't been around as long as us :)

Plus, sometimes we find something that has to change. Here is one item we've found:

Scenario V of the First Interstellar War (B12.36) has four destroyers listed for the Terrans (Washington, Zhukov, Grant, and Guderian). These ships are not listed in the ship list for ISW1 and 2 (i.e., tier B). They are listed for the ISW3 as the Guderian-class DD. The design for this class in SF1 match the Cornwallis-class in SF2. Should we:

1. Add the ships to the Cornwallis-class list (My preference)
2. Duplicate the Guderian-class in ISW1.
3. Add the ships to some other class in ISW1.


Hmmmm. I'm thinking Dazrand is right and #1 is the better option. What do ya'll think?

There are also additional ships listed in the classes that aren't in the scenarios. I think that will be nice for people who want additional official ship names for scenarios of their own.

I would love to see the original versions re-released in PDF.

I also would like to get re-aquainted with the SF I, II, & III rules in PDF format. Count me in.

Now that you brought this to my attention, I seem to vaguely rembember that this was one of two or three problems that my friends and I had with SF I, but this was all 20+ years ago.

I would go ahead and add them back in as per your #1 option.
