Just picked this up and it looks pretty great, can't wait to play it. However, I'm a little bummed that what appears to be the in-box card trough, really isn't one. It is slightly too narrow to hold the cards once sleeved, and you can't stack them vertically or else the lid can't close. The box is too shallow. Has anyone come up with creative storage solutions for this game's components?

I have this and the expansion in the box, along with the expansion box, all sleeved. I have 4 tuck boxes that hold all the cards. Everything fits snugly and the lid closes flush.

I just stick all the cards in a couple ultra-pro plastic deck boxes. They fit in the original box with the components just fine. It's not fancy, but it gets the job done. The box is too small for upright cards and dividers, and you always use all the cards anyway, so I don't see a reason to do something more complicated like you would for Dominion or Lord of the Rings.

Ah, perfect! I hadn't thought of this. Yes, I was assuming I'd use the small area for cards, but multiple small deck boxes in the large area makes total sense. Thanks!

Edit: Question. Are those deck boxes 80 or 100 card sized? I want to make sure the ones I order fit aren't too big to close the lid.

The tuck boxes are what came with the Ultra Pro's back in the '90s blush. About 65 cards fit in each box (60 cards was the legal size of Star Wars Customizable Card Game decks). It is possible 80 card boxes might fit, but it would be really close.

Mine fit in the box when sleeved. I put them in horizontally and have them at an 80 degree angle or so.

This is basically what I have as well. It's pretty easy to make.

I have two Ultra-Pro "pro-sized" deck boxes and one regular sized. The planets and scenarios fit in the regular box. The role cards fit in one of the pro boxes, and the techs and politics fit in the other. Each type of cards has a cardstock planet or fleet tech or start player in between. These three boxes fit on their side in the base game box, with room for the role cards mat and bits in baggies on the other side. Rule sheet fits over all of them. The base box is a bit thicker than normal from the pro-sized deck boxes but that's it.

No joke, I took a pair of pliers and compressed the divider as much as possible to make sure it would accommodate the sleeved cards, then I put in a piece of cardboard bent into a triangle to hold all the cards at an angle so they limbo beneath the lid line of the box.
