As I wait as the Alternity 2017 RPG game comes together (core rule, starships and equipment supplements) I am already looking for ideas for what miniatures, gaming accessories and online resources I want to use when I run my first Alternity RPG Protostar campaign; this is just a partial list and suggestions are welcomed.

For this list I tried mainly to stay away from well known IPs like Star Wars, Star Trek, Warhammer 40K and other tabletop miniatures lines, focusing more on general purpose use where possible.

I will also be adding links for Sci-Fi campaign/world building articles and online resources soon.

Maps & Tiles:
Paizo’s Starfinder Flip-Map line
Paizo's Pathfinder Flip-Map line

Starships:
0-hr Starship Miniatures
Shapeways Starships Miniatures

Miniatures; Pawns/Tokens:
Paizo’s Starfinder Pawns
ArcKnight's Flat Plastic Miniatures

Miniatures; Plastic/Metal:
Reaper Bones
Reaper Chronoscope Sci-Fi
Shapeways Sci-Fi

Boardgames:
Nemesis
Zombiecide Invader

Terrain/Scenery:
(TBD)

VTT Support, Roll20:
(TBD)

VTT Support, Fantasy Grounds:
(TBD)

Alternity or Star Frontiers? My opinion is we will see before a transition playtesting, the settin of Spelljammer, and maybe some fans asking some ideas from transhumanism sci-fi because they have read "Eclipse Phase" with its rules about egos, morphos and forked.

I don't understand your question, can you rephrase?

When I say Alternity I am referring to the new Sci-Fi RPG in development by Sasquatch Game Studio (I notice the link in my OP is not working, let me update that.)

Star Frontiers is a WOTC/TSR Sci-Fi game out of production and is currently available on Drivethrurpg. Two separate things.
 

Maybe we will see a mash-up, a mixture of the background from the two titles, but with the name of "Star Frontiers".

I have said we will see Spelljammer like the middle step between the both franchises to test lot of things for the d20 system, like the ultra-tech.

Updated OP to include the full line of products from ArkKnight, I especially like their Flat Plastic Miniatures as I have participated in both
of their Kickstarter's and I am very happy with the minis I received. They complement my existing D&D and Pathfinder minis (tokens,pawns, pre-painted) nicely.

Spelljammer is not a science fiction setting, its 100% fantasy in space.
