New Star Trek RPG Is Coming: Star Trek AdventuresJuly 27th, 2016
Fans have been hungry for a new Star Trek RPG for a long time now, so this should be some good news. Modiphius Entertainment has announced that a new RPG called Star Trek Adventures is currently in development. This will be the first new Trek RPG in almost 15 years.
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). Modiphius is also sculpting an accompanying Star Trek miniature figure line, the first to be produced in 17 years. Resin and metal 32mm-scale hobby figures will feature classic Star Trek characters and crews, boarding parties and away teams. Geomorphic tile maps of burning Federation ships, mysterious colonies and embattled Klingon cruisers will set the scene for dramatic new voyages in the Final Frontier.
Sounds like my kind of game. I know a lot of people who have been waiting for something like this. There will also be a new miniature line that will release around the same time.
For those interested, there will be a play test starting in early September. Registration for the play test will take place daily at the Modiphius booth #2737 in the Gen Con exhibit hall August 4 – 7, 2016 (and on the Modiphius website through the middle of August). Gen Con Participants get their choice of ship for the game along with a free Kirk or Picard miniature. I can’t wait to play this one.
