This chart shows what you would need to have a Seafarers type of expansion after buying a second ST Catan base game to use for parts and after first building a base game 5/6 player extension (or not).

For a Seafarers type of expansion you need to replace 2 Gold hexes with 2 new planets and you would need 19 space hexes. You would also need 60 spaceship replacements. For this I would use the Starships as boats replacements and come up with a new road replacement for the base game. (I was thinking a good possibility would be shuttle craft or communications beacons. A possible source of parts would be a 10 army piece from an old Risk game (wooden ) or a newer (pre soldier, cannon, mounted) 10 or 1 army piece from Risk (Plastic). I envision the wooden one would be shuttle craft or the plastic would be a communications beacon.

Needed for ST Seafarers:
50 Catan chits (replacement) This could be anything from actual catan chits to little beads, coins or buttons. 18 VP chits come with the Federation map set...
19 Space Hexes available from here:
2 Gold Hex replacements
2 Asteroid Field Hexes could be replaced by Black Holes available at the above link. (You would only be 1 short if not making a 5/6 player extension for the base game as well)
10 space ports these are available here: (note: the file has only 9 harbours. You will have to print one more.)
1 Romulan Warbird a possible source of a Romulan Warbirds is here: .
Rules: You will have to use Seafarers rules and “translate them”.

Seafarers 5/6 player extention:
2 harbours: 1 3to1 and 1 food
7 space hexes
2 Gold Hex replacement
1 Asteroid Field Hex
35 Catan chits

Note: for the gold hex replacement(s) you could use the Purple or Red planet hex from here:
