Looking forward to the coming Battlestations supplement that puts the game in the Star Fleet Battles setting. BS, Trek style, good stuff. What others you think would work in this style?

Personally, an ideal one that comes to mind is Farscape. Ships with personality, colorful crew and lots of emphasis on ship board as well as ship to ship action, this would go great with this game.

+1!

Farscape has the perfect atmosphere for this.

Paranoia Would fight well, a ship with a physiologically disturbed computer.

Serenity/Firefly is one I'm toying around with.

For that - I think you would need more roleplaying and social interaction rules than are current within the game.

I'm going to try introducing this game in a new game group by this comparison! (but with the Chtuloidean flavour of "DOiDS")

Heck I've been considering using the Battlestations system for anything even remotely sci-fi related when you take into consideration that size doesn't really matter. I keep thinking "wow, I could do that in Battlestations!"

Star Wars: Clone Wars (add Warp-Rings as something you can buy for Fighters)
Transformers (Just re-tool the racial abilities)
Gundam (treat Gundams as Fighters)
