The Science Fiction Assocation (SFA) was a sim club that was founded in 1997 by David Coit and Sknt as an offshoot of the Alliance Simulation Group (ASG).  The club closed its doors after a year of general success.  The leadership simply moved on, and realized that most of their members would sim elsewhere. Most members of the SFA revive their participation in the ASG while others join the small but upstart Allied Sim Association (ASA).
