According to the base rules, there will be 11 factions planned. If you wanted to sleeve each faction in its own color, what would you go with? Let's assume Ultra Pro sleeves, despite me hating the Ultra Pro dot on them.


* Federation - Dark blue
* Klingon - Red
* Romulan - Green
* Dominion -
Borg - Black
Species 8472 -
Kazon -
Bajoran -
* Ferengi - Lime green
* Independents -
Mirror Universe -


With Reference cards and Mission cards in clear sleeves.

What do you think the missing factions should be listed as for colors? I'm not sure what to do for the Dominion, as there are many green logos at this point.

I picked the same colors, except:

Dominion: Purple

Ferengi: Bright Orange

Independents: Black (although they may become White, and use Black for Borg as you have done - might be a ways off)

Ferengi have their own logo:



Why'd you go with purple for the Dominion? I understand Bright orange for the Ferengi based on their ships.

I was looking at shiny sleeves for the Mirror universe. Yes, I'm a dork.

Purple for the Dominion based on the color of the Jem-Hadar ships.

Metallic gold for the Mirror Universe?

I have to wonder how that is going to work - a single faction for Mirror-Sisko, Mirror-Kirk, and Mirror-Worf?

Might not be a problem if they are captain / crew cards only - but would seem a little odd to lump them all together.

I've been using the firing arc color as a guide line.

So I also have Independents as Yellow (from the space station) and the Dominion as Purple (also it's one of the 4 colored bases for the month 3 tournament....which look to be the 4 main factions right now)



I`m also using white sleeves for reference cards and ship maneuver guides


If I was to guess for future faction colors

Borg - Grey (black would be problematic with the base color already being black.....possibly a dark grey while keeping a contrast to Black)
Mirror Universe - Silver

Purple is kind of the official color for dominion. just look at their firing arcs on their ship chits (and on every other faction for that matter).

Good call on the purple. I was going off of their icon, but doing it based on the firing arc is a good idea too.

I went with a yellow for Independents, since it matches the Independent icon's color.

This has been discussed here:

http://boardgamegeek.com/article/13447211#13447211


we're just waiting on Species 8472, Kazon and the mirror universe. We'll know the first 2 in 2014 wave 4 where they'll have a Kazon & Species 8472 ship.

It is a pity that Andrew Parks can't come on and spill the beans

And of the 4 we haven't seen yet (including the Bajoran's as we haven't seen their exact color to compare yet.) the only one we don't know when we will be seeing is first Mirror Universe ship (as Mike mentioned).......

March: LE Akorem/Bajoran Starship

April: Borg Sphere, Kazon Raider, Species 8472 BioShip.

With previews we might have them before then too.....

The Bajoran symbol is on the DS9 token, and it is orange. It would make sense to use that color for them, although we probably aren't going to get many ships for them I would think.

Would you sleeve the rules in a different color? Or just use clear there

Thanks for passing that link along. I actually messaged Andrew, and he's apparently not 100% sure himself, or at least that's his story.

Yes if they're double sided like the Elite Attack Die or the Scenarios. The Tribble rule card and the like would be in the respective color for that card.

If I had sleeved by color/faction, I'd definitely go the firing arc colors by faction. I gave up and am using clear pro-fit sleeves because I keep my collection in a monster binder. The Pro-Fits are a bit tight, and after sleeving I put a heavy book on the binder to flatten them all out.

I've been going by the colours that were used in the STNG CCG as that's where the icons for each race seem to come from (certainly it must be more than coincidental that independents are represented by the yellow globe).

The only difference I can see to date has been the amalgamation of the Cardassisns into the Dominion as in the CCG the Cardassians were Purple while the Dominion were Brown.

Personally I don't like the fact that the Cardassians aren't their own faction since they were around long before the Dominion turned up. However, for the purposes of STAW and it's focus on the Dominion War I've reluctantly gone with Brown.

The other colours from the CCG work out as follows:

Federation - Light Blue
Klingon - Red
Romulan - Green
Dominion - Brown (with Cardassian Purple)
Bajoran - Maroon
Ferengi - Orange
Independent - Yellow
Borg - Grey
Kazon - Rust (Reddish Brown)
Species 8472 - ?

Mirror Universe were the same colour as their standard counterparts but with a different icon.
