What do you think paint, them with the faction colors or paint them a generic gray? If they are gray, if a star base is taken over by a rival player it won't still reflect the previous owner's faction colors.
Probably look better with faction colors.

On another thread someone mentioned that GF9 will apparently be releasing colored starbase sets for the factions. If true, this does leave open the question as to how to mark a captured starbase. Tokens? I don't think this problem goes away if all starbases are gray- you would still have to mark it somehow to indicate ownership by a rival faction.

ownership of a starbase is shown by the ownership of the system it is in ie the control node on the planet.

Oh, are there figures for the starbases? That's great news! I don't have the game yet, and from reading the downloadable rulebook I had gathered that the starbases are represented by tokens. Are the sculpts of the base game's figures faction-specific?

I think that it does make sense to have faction-specific sculpts and colors, even given that the starbases will be changing faction throughout the game. There's a whole Star Trek TV show that's all about a Cardassian starbase that got "culturally hegemonized" by the Federation, after all!

the base game comes with tokens, at gencon you could get minis and GF9 plans to release starbase minis as an expansion.
