Yes it is OOP, at least for the time being. It can be bought still, but I think it has been going for around $75-80. Cosmic Encounter while not the same type of gameplay at all, is a fun space themed game with different races, and still readily available.

Not sure if that qualifies, but I'd point towards Ad Astra.

Also note that the figurines are an add-on and are not included with the base game.

Just so you know. The figurines do not come with the base game. They are sold separately. I know it may be difficult to find a copy of Starfarers now, but not sure if Mayfair will do a reprint. Otherwise you could check out e-Bay or look at the one available for trade.

For trades you can scroll down the Starfarers page to the Statistics section. Then click on the number next to the "Users Trading", (currently 130). Many people willing to trade are also willing to sell their games.

As for other games with alien miniatures;

Battlestations (Sold separately) True aliens races not just humanoids with blue skin.
