Starfleets by Superior: old flier
I like the graphic design on the front of this circular: three emblematic fighter icons in staggered formation at the top, and just three words: Starfleets by Superior in a shadowed font at the bottom. Very clean and elegant.
When you open this publication up, it unfolds onto photographs of all five factions in the Starfleet Wars line, images that spurred me to get these ships and start this blog. The text here really sells the setting background and notes "the designs of each fleet have been influenced by the physical characteristics of the beings who conceived and built them...designs based on military, scientific and fantasy considerations." There's also an image of the SfW rulebook with information about the game.
MAATAC ground combat game and the company's short-lived periodical, Wargamers Forum. There's also a section about the Stardate: 3000 line of ship models, suitable for various games, with a parenthetical note that these minis "can also be used with Superior StarFleets."
Alnavco is still in business, and they have (almost) the same mailing address--except now they're at PO Box 10 instead of 9. Although they're out of the starship business, Alnavco still sells historical warship miniatures, so go check out their merchandise--no need to send off for a catalog!
