You were asked – TMP link

Not the show the spaceship miniatures game. Would you support its return? Same rulebook, or new rules? Rulebook only, or the minis? Which scale? Same minis, or new minis?

18% said "not my cup of tea"
16% said "yes, updated/new rules and the old minis"
14% said "none of these/no opinion"

(Roughly 40% said some form of 'yes'.)

I still have loads of models for the game, but never really cared for the rules.
An update would be good!

I don't know anything about the rules, so can't comment if they are any good or not, but I would love to see the minis re-released.

Well not much of a game player but I liked the figures to paint, hard to get now, I would like some new figures to be updated(not that the old ones were bad)

As was pointed out in the comments for the poll, there were several rule sets. I'd say the Call to Arms version was about the most popular, comments-to-come of 'BUT I LIKED..' not withstanding.

I rather liked the Fleet Action ships as the other size seemed better for the paint and enjoy.

I was impressed that the first RPG ship rules in Earthforce Soucebook was favorably mentioned. I recall some thinking it was the best version of Full Thrust. ;->=

As was pointed out, Agents of Gaming still has stock produced before losing the license, and a number of ships show fairly regularly on eBay.
