3rd Edition Revised Book

Tactical Fleet Combat in Deep Space



The Terran battleship emerged from the warp point, spanning light-years in the blink of an eye. A vast of gleaming high-tech alloys, the loving work of thousands of hands, the warship shimmered within the protective bubble of its shields. Within two minutes, a swarm of self-propelled mines, and a barrage of fire that built gradually as the defending forces recovered from their surprise, tore the battleship into a million tiny shreds, leaving the surviving crew scattered amidst the debris.

It was going to be a long day for the Terran fleet.

In this updated and expanded edition of the classic game STARFIRE, players lead great space fleets through a "future history" in which interstellar superpowers clash in huge and bloody wars. Races featured in this set include the relatively peaceful Terran Federation, and the war-like Khanate of Orion, along with smaller empires such as the Empire of Gormus, the Ophiuchi Association, and the Rigelian Protectorate.

The unique STARFIRE game system allows you to design your own ships, fitting out your fleet with ships personalized to your style of play. The swift-resolution D10-only system gives you the power to maneuver large fleets without sacrificing quickness of play.

Deploy your fleet...the universe is yours!

You've fought it out, ship to ship, and won; but you do also have what it takes to command a FLEET, or with IMPERIAL STARFIRE, what it takes to run an empire! Can you adapt or will your race slip back into the universal goo?

First Contact

Expansion Set #1

"The Fourth Interstellar War had been a difficult time for all, with both the Rigellian and Arachnid menaces confronting the Grand Alliance. If only we had been able to communicate with the Arachnids, t might have been a different story to tell, but that is behind us now. In what should have been a time of strengthening alliances and reconstruction, we found ourselves confronted with two new players in the Galactic Arena. This is their story."

-Excerpt from galley proofs of "Darkness and Light" by Angus Podgorny, Terran Archivist


First Contact - Starfire Expansion Set #1 introduces two new races to the Starfire Universe, and includes background material, ship control sheets, and scenarios which will allow you to introduce them into your Starfire game.

The Vestrii - The appearance of the Vestrii in local space sent shock waves through the Admiralties of all the major Navies. Even taking into account the tech advances achieved during the Fourth Interstellar War, the Vestrii were further advanced and everyone realized that the enigmatic newcomers had much to offer.

The Corsairs of Tangri - The entire nature of the Tangri reflects their society's obsessive raid-oriented philosophy. Their Horde Fleet will surely make them a worthy adversary.
