Shooting Stars is a neat and basic set of space war rules. Presentation is concise and basic (black on white) with simple illustrations and the odd picture or two. The rules themselves are concisely presented, and whilst the TACTICAL combat rules are nothing completely new, the RACE variant rules are a new and enjoyable twist on what is a standard sci-fi trope, and a great deal of enjoyment can be had simply by creating your race, with all its variations from the 'standard' rules, and designing their ships using the very simple design system.
In game play, ships are played via Full Thrust/SFB type ship displays, but compared to these two other games (especially SFB) they are very much more basic.
There are multiple races provided in the rulebook, along with ship diagrams for their ships.
Simple, quick, neat & works OK. Great Racial rules!
