The Star Fleet Battles: Captain's Edition Basic Set arrived on the doorstep today. My first impression is, "Wow! That's an awfully thick rulebook!" You could argue that many rulebooks are thick, but if you flip open a D & D rulebook or something from Games Workshop, a whole lot of the space is going to be filled with art and fluff text. Flipping through the Star Fleet Battles rulebook feels a bit like flipping through a calculator manual or the Federal Travel Regulations. There is a lot of stuff in those 238 pages. I can't comment on the game system itself as I haven't read the rules. I may have to wait until summer to get through it.
