Sapphire Star Tournament

Sapphire Star Tournament is a paid single elimination tournament with 16 slots. After the signup period is closed the judge will create the match ups/brackets. This will be announced both in the Star Fleet Universe Discussion Board Topic "Star Fleet Universe Discussion Board: Star Fleet Battles: Star Fleet Battles Online: Sapphire Series Tournaments" and an Email will be send with the initial match ups.

To sign up, go to Sapphire Star Tournament Signup Page and then go to Star Fleet Orders - Sapphire Star Tournament Registration

There is a $10 registration fee. Until that fee is paid you are not considered part of the tournament.

All $160 will be distributed as prizes. There are $10 prizes for 5th-8th place, so if you win one game you get your money back; keep playing to win more. You can take cash or use triple the value of the prize in merchandise or PDF credit. (If used for credit, this must all be used in one order within 30 days of the award. You do not have to use matching cash in redeeming the prize, but will have to pay cash or use prize cash for the shipping costs. Tripled prize credit cannot be used for Shapeways, Starmada, ACTASF, Starline 2500, or SFBOL due to those contracts.) Prize notifications will be distributed within five business days of the conclusion of the final game. The winner is encouraged to write an article on his tactics for Captain’s Log (for which he will be paid $50) but is not required to do so.


  1. All correspondence should be copied to judge Steve Petrick
  2. All correspondence to Judge (or on which Judge is copied) should have a header/subject of Sapphire Star Tournament. If it doesn't, then it does not qualify as having been sent - even if the Judge replies to it.
  3. When matched with an opponent for that round you have 72 hours to agree to a time to play. The first round game must be completed within 3 weeks. After the first round all subsequent rounds must to completed within 2 weeks from the start of the round.
  4. If the game cannot be completed, you must agree to a schedule to resume the game at the time the session ends, and must finish within the deadline. Any game not completed on time (or if both players request it) will be adjudicated and, if the game is inconclusive, the judge reserves the right to declare both players lost and fill the spot with a wild card.
  5. If someone drops out, disappears, or just won't schedule his game and there is time to put a wild card player into his place, we will do this if we can find one. If not, it will count as a forfeit and the other player will win and advance. There will be no forfeits in the final game, even if we have to find a wild card player (or have two players fight for the wild card spot) and start the two-week clock over again. Wild cards for the second and third rounds (and possibly the first round) will come from those who did not advance from those rounds.
