The Gale Force Nine team have continued to preview some of the mechanics behind Star Trek Ascendancy – their new BIG board game coming this summer. Here they are exploring the Command Phase where you start to add to your faction…
As you can see you have plenty of interesting options open to you – as you might expect with a 4X game of this magnitude. One of the big things is to launch projects which allow you to develop advancements for your faction.
Additionally you can also build Starbases which are important for increasing the number of Command Tokens available to you. You ONLY have three of these throughout the game so you need to pick them carefully.
Of course you can also bring Fleets under your control using Starbases and your Command Phase. As you might imagine a game about space certainly requires ships in order to traverse the stars.
As you might already know the different factions within the game all have their own way of playing so you’ll play a very different game each time you take up their consoles.
I have to say this is probably the best looking game Gale Force Nine have made to date. We can’t wait to get our hands on a copy.
Which faction will you play?
