I have several Star Trek fleets (20-30) ship each from a 3d printing company. Can anyone suggest a good set of rules for fleet actions?

Do you want to use all of those ships at once? Or is a dozen a side OK?

A Sky Full of Ships will easily let you fight large battles. Rules are available from Wargame Vault. IO group I setup is here. This is the link to stats for ships with Movie backgrounds. Bab6, Trek, etc.

Ideally I'd like to have all of the ships of each fleet on the table at once, but a dozen is okay if it provides a better game

You can do 20, 30 or more per side with ASFOS.

Starmada has a Starfleet Battles version.

A Call to Arms: Starfleet is designed specifically for Star Trek fleet on fleet games.

Captain Avatar: pretty confusing website. Lots of similar sounding titles and supplements: A Call to Arms: Star fleet, A call to Arms Starfleet 1.2, A Call to Arms Star fleet 1.2 Deluxe, A Call to Arms Star fleet book 2. What is it you'd want to play a relatively fast fleet action game?

Thanks for the suggestions—I now have 1 of each rule set and will try them out with my shapeways fleets. Thanks again!

Don't get A Call To Arms. Never buy anything with Mongoose involved. They don't seem to be able to get a rulebook straight. They are always incomplete and full of errors. Always takes one or two revisions and still aren't right. I have bought from them before and now have no respect for them.
