U.S.S. Sentinel for the FASA Star Trek Combat game

Just another quick update.  I saw Star Trek Beyond this past weekend and the run up to the movie has resparked some gaming interest in the universe as well.  I busted out my Star Trek FASA game rules and books to crunch some stats and was researching the various utilities for the game online.  In that search, I came across a master model builder and talented artist named Bill Krause who came up with both schematic images as well as a incredible custom physical model ship build for his U.S.S. Sentinel design and was hooked!

I've always been more of a Next Gen person but since diving back into Star Trek earlier this year I've found myself more drawn to the earlier series (both chronologically like TOS as well as in universe like ENT).   Bill's Sentinel design (along with the much smaller Archer class scout pictured docking with it in a WIP album pic) take those classic asthetics and bring them a bit further into the modern era without losing that retro charm.  I asked Bill if I could use his image for a FASA ship workup and he graciously agreed.  One of the resources I found online was the excellent fasaststcs website which also had some jpg templates for use with the classic FASA game, one of which I used as the background for the sheet below.

Using the above, I created the below background and stats for use with the classic FASA game.   To get the full sized picture suitable for printing, right click and open the image in a new window.  Enjoy!

Note: The sheet above was updated after initial publication to include the refit design variant as well as incorporate extra information from the Starfleet Dynamics deck plans.
