This is a reprint from a scan of an original. It has all of the original material (except for some advertising inside the cover for products no longer available). We are making it available for fans who want to have the complete collection. The bound version has a black and white cardstock cover. The unbound version is just pages. Due to the layout, it is not practical to hole punch this item.

This 1990 issue introduced the new Doomsday Edition of SFB. The issue grew to 80 pages. Included were two fiction stories:

  • "Escape From the Holdfast" described a Klingon effort to slip into Tholian space and steal an entire ship (along with the secret of web technology).
  • "The Battle of Olsen's Reach" told the tale of the moment when the Federation tried to surrender and a mistake by a young ensign caused the General War to drag on for another decade.

Included are:

  • nine new SFB scenarios
  • the Federation FFB and DW
  • Q&A
  • an introduction to Doomsday
  • an example of tractor auctions

  • Just Say No
  • Battleforce 2000
