Which defunct sci-fi game would you like to see make a comeback via a Kickstarter?

nukesnipe05 Nov 2016 8:39 p.m. PST

Rivets. With minis. ;-)

Well off the top of my head I would say 'supremacy' but I'm not sure if that's really sci-fi enough plus it already got successfully kickstarted at least a year ago.

War Monkey05 Nov 2016 8:54 p.m. PST

Renegade Legion

I don't know if you would call it defunct but I sure would like to see it come back to the main stream

Grizzly7105 Nov 2016 8:54 p.m. PST

Renegade Legion (Interceptor, Centurion)
Star Frontiers

War Monkey05 Nov 2016 8:57 p.m. PST

See great minds do think alike Grizzly and I post at the same time 8:54 PM wink

I second Star Frontier!

KJdidit05 Nov 2016 9:26 p.m. PST

Renegade Legion Centurion and Interceptor would get my cash in a heartbeat, as would new versions of Confrontation and Rag'Narok (official, not the Confrontation Evo rules released by the Italians) based on the v3 rules, with new metal minis.

Weasel05 Nov 2016 9:47 p.m. PST

Oh hey, a thread about Rogue Trader? How pleasant. ;)

zircher05 Nov 2016 10:05 p.m. PST

Nice to see all the love for Renegade Legion.

tnjrp05 Nov 2016 10:06 p.m. PST

Can't think of any that I used to play that was so fantastic it would absolutely need to be resurrected. Starship Troopers might have the best potential but it might be difficult to run to everyone's satisfaction. Especially since there would likely be incentive to do it as a miniatures board game ATM as they are the bees knees of the KS world.

There is also of course Defiance which is not strictly any more defunct than years ago but arguably it's never been "funct" either so I suppose it counts. It's unlikely the game would catch on but if reasonably good quality miniatures from the art/concepts for the backstory armies could be produced for cheap (at least relative to perceived quality) they'd likely have enough cross-game appeal for modest returns.

My vote also goes to Star Frontiers and Renegade Legion but I'd also love an updated Fasa Star Trek game with minis for all their designs and updated rules.

daler240D06 Nov 2016 2:28 a.m. PST

I always thought Metamorphosis Alpha had a lot of potential.

GonerGonerGoner06 Nov 2016 2:43 a.m. PST

Chitin minigame. I always wanted that to be fleshed out.

Random Die Roll Supporting Member of TMP06 Nov 2016 3:27 a.m. PST

Star Frontiers
Renegade Legion

R Lee S06 Nov 2016 9:02 a.m. PST


Cullen06 Nov 2016 10:26 a.m. PST

I'll second a FASA Star Trek update.

I'd also like to see "The Creature That Ate Sheboygan" (on New Sheboygan perhaps, in the outer colonies, etc etc).

Cheers! RC

Weasel06 Nov 2016 10:37 a.m. PST

Side vote for Vor Into the Maelstrom, though the brand seems to be cursed.

JLA10506 Nov 2016 11:08 a.m. PST

Another vote for Renegade Legion/Centurion and Interceptor.

GhostofRebeccaBlack06 Nov 2016 11:40 a.m. PST

I want StarGrunt III.

Tomorrow's War is good but it lacks some of SG's details.

Gear Pilot06 Nov 2016 1:03 p.m. PST

Leviathan/Renegade Legion/Interceptor – especially Leviathan with actual miniatures


Personal logo Dentatus Sponsoring Member of TMP Fezian06 Nov 2016 2:31 p.m. PST

Another vote for VOR – Into the Maelstrom. I have good memories of that game.

Zargon06 Nov 2016 5:12 p.m. PST

I eleventysecond Star Frontiers (28 mm miniature skirmish with the original cool fluff but rules given a osprey reboot) Leviathan using plastic kit ships and Full Thrust rules specially for them, Renegade in 10-15 mm scale using new streamline of Star Grunt for battle group sized games (Star Grunt III?). I'd be happy if they don't destroy the backgrounds too much either.
I'd be pretty broke after that.
Rouge Trader? I'd just like updated book with modem rules for the older figures as well as the new oh and new ROBOTs for 40kiverce. By then I'd have no money for the year regarding gaming.

TheBeast Supporting Member of TMP06 Nov 2016 5:39 p.m. PST

Gear Pilot: Thanks! I was afraid there was no love for the not-Star Destroyers I so love. ;->=

I agree that FT is probably the most malleable, but wish I could have gotten into Spartan's fleet game more. I think it has real potential for mass quantities of masses.

And THAT would be a good game of Leviathan…


chironex06 Nov 2016 6:03 p.m. PST

I don't see anything as needed, but Aeronautica Imperialis perhaps, and Buggybash.

Generalstoner4906 Nov 2016 8:10 p.m. PST

Renegade Legion.

zircher06 Nov 2016 8:21 p.m. PST

@daler240D, MA has been in development for a stupid long time, but I still get regular updates.

Lion in the Stars06 Nov 2016 11:41 p.m. PST

Renegade Legion/Centurion/Interceptor/etc Would probably have to do a simplified damage model for today's gamers (I'm rather partial to the HGBlitz system).

Legions of Steel would probably be really popular, as it was a Miniatures Board Game much like Space Hulk (but with killer robots instead of killer xenomorphs).

chuck05 Fezian07 Nov 2016 9:33 a.m. PST

Space Crusade/Advanced Space Crusade

Covert Walrus07 Nov 2016 12:50 p.m. PST

Rivets and Chitin, definitely.

Personal logo javelin98 Supporting Member of TMP07 Nov 2016 1:49 p.m. PST

Striker II, with an official line of 15mm minis.

Coelacanth193809 Nov 2016 12:36 a.m. PST

Chitin with miniatures and maybe a few new units.

(Major Disaster)11 Nov 2016 11:30 p.m. PST

A new Star Trek The Role-Playing Game, with an updated Star Trek Starship Combat Simulator with a complete line of character miniatures and starship miniatures – the entire game needs to be set in the Original Universe, not the J.J. Abrams cesspool.
