5/13/2005 - Stellar Wars is back.  I received the follwing email from Rusty Gronewold of TCG:

Just want to drop you a line to let you know that "Stellar Fire" is now back for those individuals looking for a space combat game. Yes we were off line for a long time but I have found the time to make this game available for to those who interested a new system.


7/1/2001 - The following information was posted by Mel Beard from TCG on the TCG yahoo.groups mailing list with the title, "TCG closes doors":

Hello all,

I'm informing all of you that TCG is closing. TCG will remain as a paper company but I will not pursue new or old products As TCG.  I will be closing down this e-group with in the next week.

I am forming a new company called Force XXI Miniatures and is owned by me. Most of the products was brought too and sold through TCG by Force XXI miniatures.

The only rule set that I will continue to pursue at this time is Stellar Conflicts and Uprisings, the 15mm Sci fi miniatures game.You are all invited to join my new e-group called Force XXI Miniatures.

Why am I closing TCG doors?

In September 2000, a publisher called Mormaer publications in New York contacted me wanting to publish TCG products.  I discussed things over with my partner and we decided to go with it.  The Publisher supposedly made a separated company called SGD (Strategic Game Design), drew up a contract and gained rights to TCG products.

Sense November 2000 I have been out of contact with this publisher. numerous attempts to reestablish relations with this publisher has gone un answered. Registered mail has been sent requesting all material be sent back to me and the contract nullified which is with legal representation on my side.

Sense communication has been broken by this publisher. I consider the contract with TCG null and void and am currently seeking legal action against this publisher for breach of contract on many things.

I wish to continue in the game industry and have taken my company Force XXI in to full production.

Again your all welcome to join Force XXI's E-group were discussion will happen.

Thank you for hanging in with TCG and I wish you all luck.

Mel Beard
