Sure we do - we've got to eat :)
BUT we're also quite happy for people to play FT with anything they want
in fact there are plenty of suggestions in the rules for making
scratchbuilt ships.
Have a look in a craft shop for all sorts of cheap glass/plastic beads
things; the plastic "spares" from Games Workshop also can be very useful
(yes, they are good for SOMETHING!!) - take a couple of the "domed"
shields, stick them back-to-back and put a couple of plastic 25mm
on the sides as "drives" - hey presto, instant Trek-shape ship!
