With this year being the 50th Anniversary of one of the biggest Sci Fi series in history, Star Trek, it’s no surprise that we’re seeing a resurgence in Star Trek games. But what we haven’t seen in a while is a Star Trek RPG – until now. Modiphius Entertainment is excited to announce their development of Star Trek Adventures, the first new Star Trek RPG in more than a decade.
“Since I was a kid, I dreamed of sitting in the Captain’s chair and boldly going on my own voyages,” says Modiphius Entertainment’s Publishing Director Chris Birch. “With Star Trek Adventures we can all explore our own stories in the worlds of Captain Kirk, Picard, Sisko, Janeway, Archer and many others.”
What Can We Look Forward Too?
Star Trek Adventures will use the Modiphius 2d20 game system (Mutant Chronicles, Infinity, Conan, John Carter of Mars) designed by Jay Little (Star Wars: Edge of the Empire, X-Wing Miniatures Game). They are also sculpting an entire Star Trek Miniatures line to go along with this endeavor, which is the first in seventeen years!
Models will include 32mm resin and metal classic Star Trek characters and crews, boarding parties and away teams. There’s even talk of geomorphic tile maps of burning Federation ships, mysterious colonies and embattled Klingon cruisers to set the scene and offer dramatic new voyages for the players to explore.
If all of this wasn’t exciting enough, the attendees at Gen Con are in for a real treat as they will be offered the first opportunity to sign up as playtesters to participate in shaping the game in a live campaign playtest.
Each player will experience the game differently based upon the ship they are assigned, and Gen Con attendees will be allowed the extra honor of choosing their ship as well as receiving a free model of either Captain Kirk or Captain Picard when they register.
Additional signups will be managed online in late August and attendees at Essen-Spiel in Germany in October and Dragonmeet in the UK will be offered the same awesome opportunity as Gen Con- choice of ship and a free mini.
Are you looking forward to this Star Trek from Modiphius?
