2017 is a great time to be a live if you are a fan of sci-fi tabletop role playing games, and doubly so if you are a fan of Star Trek. Modiphius Entertainment released Star Trek Adventures at Gen Con 2017, and we stopped by their booth to chat with Chris Birch about the game, some of its features, and the last year of play-tests that led up to the final release of the core book.
In addition to the core book, Modiphius has quite a few supplemental books coming in the near future. The core book also includes rules for a miniatures game, so there is more on offer here than just the Star Trek Adventures RPG. Modiphius also has a living campaign going with a series of adventures planned to drop every few months. Based on the outcome of the adventures, and the feedback from the players who participate in the campaign, those upcoming adventures will be written to include events and outcomes from the players themselves, so if you actively participate you may see your actions or name become a permanent part of the story.
If you want to nab a copy of the Star Trek Adventures book, or sign up for the upcoming adventures head over to Modiphius’ website where you can get the hardbound book for $58.99, or grab a copy on pdf for only $15.99. Modiphius is also offering a range of miniatures, and custom dice to go with the game, some special editions of the book, and for the truly dedicated there is a massive Borg Cube collector’s set available for about $500.
