Star Trek: Starship Tactical Combat Simulator was a game published by FASA Corporation in the 1980s. It was a board wargame, set in the Star Trek universe, utilizing ten-sided dice and counters to simulate tactical combat. It came into being as the combat system in the Star Trek role-playing game published by FASA, as the space combat portion of the game. Later, it was published as a separate game, still usable by players within the RPG game.
It went through several incarnations before FASA lost its licensing for the Star Trek(c) materials. The first incarnation dealt with the duels between the USS Reliant and USS Enterprise boxed combat games. The second incarnation was the rules specific board game for the Second Edition Rules of the Role Playing game which dealt with larger fleet overview and more personalized ship combat rules. The third and final installment was the Star Trek III Combat Simulator which was a cleaned up rules supplement and contained basically the same rules and counters as in the second installment.
