Will this expansion include a set of plastic Starbases? For players with the original set in the base game, it would be unfortunate if there were no Cardassian or Ferengi bases in these expansions.

So far haven't heard anything about it. Preorder deals tend to be only for the initial launch or a product and is usually done to spend the remaining budget. It is very rare that a expansion would have a similar deal. As for Cardassian and Ferengi Star Bases of course there will be but it would be the same picture as on the star base tokens for the starting 3.

That being said I would say it would be nice to have a Nor (Deep Space 9) Star Base or a Ferengi Trading Post plastic miniatures to go with the three we have. If they are not being provided by GF9 maybe Shapeways would take some special orders.

There has been talk that if the prototypes sold well, GF9 would make plastic Star Bases in the faction colors. Nothing has been stated yet.

Just an Update, but GF9 is selling all the star bases in packs of 3 along with the escalation packages for all races. I think it is $12 US for a pack of 3 for a single race.

goo My FLGS has the Escalation Packs, but not the Star Bases. Are they plastic or resin? Are they only being sold direct from GF9?

Such a deal. 15 plastic starbases for the low low price of $60 plus shipping. Or basically what you'd spend at Coolstuff for the base game. Can you feel the GF9 love yet!

Not knowing how many of the "secondary product" Star Bases they are making, I've just preordered those of the two expansion races directly from GF9--even though I'm going to patronize my FLGS by getting the Borg expansion itself there!

Uncolored resin pieces still feel like prototypes to me, and I don't know that they'll be made in sufficient quantity until they appear in colored plastic down the line.
