Here's the Game Masters web page aimed at retailers that this distributor had back in the day. I find the info on gamer demographics interesting:
The typical Starfleet Wars customer is a white male between ages 35 and 45, works in a technical field, earns an above-average income, and owns a computer. The customer will first acquire all ships within one of the five Starfleet Wars empires, then acquire a second or third empire's fleet. The median first-time Starfleet Wars order has been $133. Over 79% of these orders included one galactic dreadnought-2 (GD2) or super galactic dreadnought (SGD). Follow-on orders are common. The Terran ships sell best, followed by the Carnivorans and Entomalians.It's also notable that Game Masters sold the models in what it called "kitted" and "finished" form. Kitted means it's your typical wargaming mini that needs basing and painting. "Finished miniatures are polished and mounted on heavy sculptured bases ..." For those of you wondering, there are still some of these "finished" Starfleet Wars models for sale by another company (along with 100mm figures of the five SfW species).
