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."


United Planetary Federation
Background
"The United Planetary Federation consistes of twenty two planets from fourteen solar systems in the First Quadrant of the Milky Way Galaxy.  Members of the Federation are primarily humanoid, although Mandroids and a sprinkling of other minorities also hold Federation citizenship."

"Initial contact between the warring parties did not occur until SD 3012.5, when the ever-expanding frontiers of the Empire began encroaching on Federation territory.  Although the tactical supperiority of the Federation fleet exacted a deadly toll of the invaders, the overwhelming power of the vast Alien starfleets dealt several severe blows to the Federation forces during the first year of the war. By shear weight of numbers the Aliens were able to break through in several places, isolating and destroying four Federation task forces."

Design Philosophy - Tough slow ships
Average hulls, No Screens, Good Armor, Beam Batteries, Heavy Weapon is the Pulse Torpedo, carriers with fighters are common, good PDS coverage, low 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. 
INTRUDER IID class Scout

Kit# 9050
Mass

Ave Hull 4 (1/1/1/1)
1 mass armor
Thrust 6
1 PDS
1 Fire Con
1 Class 2 Beam Battery (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 scouts.

 
VIGILANTE IIIC class Interceptor

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.

 

 
PHANTOM class Assault Ship

Kit # 9052

Mass 30
NPV / CPV 102/81

2 Class 2 Beam Batteries (F/FP/AP, F/FS/AS)
1 Pulse Torpedo (FP/F/FS)

 

The assault ships are the largest of the class and are best suited for attack.  They are quite capable of destroying a capital ship and are extremely dangerous when organized in wolf packs.  they are not as nible as the smaller scouts and interceptors and are thus, vulnerable to attacks by them.

The Federation space tug is intended to move disabbled capital ships from system to system, these tugs can also be used to transport up to 3 pursuit ships to other systems or battle if needed.  The CYGNUS class only has minimal defensive weaponry and would not fare well against a destroyer or larger ship.

 

AURIGA class Fleet Support Ship

Kit #9082

Mass 118
NPV / CPV 379/397
Weak Hull 28 (7/7/7/7) 24%

Thrust 3 (max tug capacity)

Tug FTL (Capacity 120)
4 PDS
2 Fire Cons
2 Class 2 Beam Batteries (F/FP/AP, F/FS/AS)
5 Docking Points

 

The AURIGA is intended to transport the Federation's sublight pursuit ships from system to system and even into battle though this ship is not intended to battle it out with capitial ships.  The intent is that this support ship would bring the smaller craft to the battle and then withdraw to a safe distance and return post battle to support and transport the remaining pursuit ships.  It is designed to be able to defend itself but not stand toe to toe with an alien cruiser or even a small pack of alien pursuit ships.

 

The AURIGA class can carry 4 but not 5 PHANTOM assaut ships.  It can carry 1 PHANTOM and 4 VIGILANTE scouts or any other combination of pursuit ships under 120 mass total.
