After looking on ebay, I saw the one below, there are several others available but this was the cheapest, at £27 with free P+P I though t it was a steal.
The mat comes rolled up in a long tube like bag, which is a very nice touch, although the stitching is stronger than the material, which rips easily, so I just discovered. The Mat is of a rubber design and is awesome (Que Lego people singing "Every thing is awesome"). I think this mat is going to make a big difference to our games, not only is it easy to carry, just roll it up and put it in its bag, the rubber grips the table and does not slip. The visual impact of this mat on our games is going to make it look a whole lot better. One slight down side is that the plastic bases of our ships can slide easily on the printed surface.

Having now got the Star trek bug, I have now expanded my fleet with a few OP prize ships, one of them being Bok's Marauder. So I decided to do a Enterprise Vs Bok game.
|Boks marauder chasing the Enterprise.|
As the movement dials were placed Bok used the thought control and adjusted Enterprises coarse, turning it towards the table edge, with Bok moving a slow ahead.
|Enterprise running out of space , Literally.|
Bok would need to do a reverse course next turn but unfortunately for him, Enterprise fives its aft phasers getting 4 hits, 2 of which are critical, Bok's helms man tries in vain to avoid the phaser fire, but the ship is vaporized in one hit.
|Ops... With 4 hits Boks marauder vaporizes.|
Star Trek Attack Wing: DS9 game.
|DS9 in Cardassian hands, escorted by Cardassian ships takes on the might of the Federation and Romulan empire.|
|I bet he can't get the dice to land like that again.|
|Cardassian ships about to be obliterated.|
|DS9 explodes due to a combined barage from 3 ships, who then go on to blow each other up.|
