After recently picking up a copy of this excellent game, I've been trying to source replacement engine rings to over come the brittle ship problem but neither Asmodee NA, Mayfair, nor Kosmos have these...does any one have a source or even a link to some designs for a 3d printed version at all?

Thanks in advance!

Wow, I was wondering when they would run out of those given that the game is now 17 years old. I thrifted Starfarers last October (2015) and managed to get four from Mayfair Games customer service, but I see you already hit them up.

3D printing would be an interesting way to go.

Mayfair replaced mine two years ago. Maybe they've run out..

I'm surprised they still had them as recently as that!

I second the suggestion about 3D printing replacements. Maybe ask them again for just one to use as a design template if they are out of full sets?

Yes! I got them printed off, the detail wasn't and I had to file down the rings to fit. I did this very very cheaply, so I think if I had access to a 3d printer myself, I would have spent more time on the sizing and checking the measurements. But they do the job!
