The Stardate: 3000 line of miniatures is produced by Valiant Enterprises Ltd. who have been producing these and other gaming and display miniatures since the 1970's and these starship miniatures are still available. 
This line of starships were never tied to a specific game system but pictures of the miniatures were used for the counters of the old game Alpha Omega.

"Warfare on the Milky Way
The bitter struggle between the outnumbered forces of the United Planetary Federation and those of the Alien Star Empire began with the Alien Invasion of Federation territory in SD 3021.7 and has lasted eight long years.  No end is yet in sight."


Alien Star Empire
Background
"The Alien Star Empire is the largest and most formidable alien force that inhabitants of the Federation have ever encountered.  Although the Empire is nominally a Confederation, it is in fact ruled by the Zanthorians.  Over a period of many years they have extended their borders beyond the limits of the Zanthor star system to the point where they now control the better part of the third quadrant of the Milky Way.  The military forces at their disposal are vast and while the Zanthorians themselves are essentially humanoid, their ships are manned by a crew from all corners of their Empire, encompassing at lease a dozen distinctly different types of beings."

Design Philosophy - Screened nimble graser ships
Weak-average hulls, Screens on all ships, No armor, Grasers as the only weapons and are fewer in number and all firing foreward, carriers with fighters are just starting to be used, weak PDS coverage, advanced drives with average thrust.

 

 
The pursuit ships (scouts, intercepters, and assault ships) are designed to fulfill roles similar  to those performed by aircraft, submarines , and patrol craft in a modern naval fleet. They are the only craft in the STARDATE: 3000 series capable of landing or operating in an atmosphere. Their range is short compared to capital ships, which means they operate in waves from their tenders or return frequently to a mother ship for refueling. 
BANSHEE class Scout

Kit# 9053

NPV / CPV 85 / 68
Weak Hull 7 (2/1/1/1) 23%
Adv Drive 6
FTL
1 Fire Con
1 PDS
Level 1 Screens
1 Class 1 Graser (FP/F/FS)

 

The scouts are the smallest of the pursuit ships and are designed to form a flexible screen around the task force as it moves through space, with the dual task of seeking out enemy and warning of any sudden enemy approach.  Their offensive weaponry is limited being designed more to eliminate enemy scouts than to destroy or disable capital ships.


VAMPIRE class Interceptor

Kit # 9054

The interceptors are the general purpose craft of the fleet.  They can be used in small groups to intercept and destroy marauding enemy scouts, or in larger groups attack capital ships.  They can also be used effectively as long range scouts.

Those rumors of Alien carriers mention a massive Attack Carrier is being developed that would bring waves of fighters with it.

 

 

JEFARIE class Space Tug

Kit #9080

Mass 130

This alien space tug is intended to move disabbled capital ships from system to system, these tugs can also be used to transport up to 2 Pursuit Ships to other systems or battle if needed. 

 

 

 

 
POLLUX class Fleet Support Ship

Kit #9083

Mass 100
NPV / CPV 358/358
Average Hull 27 (7/7/7/6) 27%
Adv Thrust 4 (empty)
Adv Thrust 2 (max tug capacity)

Tug FTL (Capacity 100)
2 Fire Controls

3 PDS
Level 1 Screens

3 Class 1 Grasers (FP/F/FS, F/FP/AP, F/FS/AS)
4 Docking Points

 

The role of the POLLUX is different than the Federation's fleet support ship.  Alien pursuit ships do have their own FTL so there is no need to transport them from system to system.  Alien pursuit ships are intended for short endurance missions so when the mission needs to be extended, the POLLUX is there to keep those ships and crew suplied and ready for battle.  The POLLUX can dock and transport pursuit ships to other systems if needed but that is not the primary purpose.
