I noticed that in the fleet boxes, there's a miniature rulebook included now. Are the ships included in this? Or do you still need to buy the core rulebook ?
The answer is yes! The pocket rulebook does contain ships for the Federation, Klingons, and Romulans. I don't have the main rulebook so I can't compare the 2 though. It does look like you have everything you need in the pocket rulebook though.
