Boldly go where no gamer has been before – become a playtester for the new Trek RPG!

Modiphius Entertainment has released missions for the Star Trek Adventures™ living campaign playtest. Help develop the first official Star Trek RPG in more than a decade by joining more than 5,000 players – join the campaign!

via Modiphius:

The playtest gives fans of the legendary television series and films the opportunity to contribute to the development of the game; to sit in the captain’s chair, seek out new life and new civilizations, give all they’ve got to a warp core breach, or explore their own adventures in the Star Trek universe.

The living campaign begins with playtest missions and will continue with the release of the core rulebook in the summer of 2017. The living campaign takes place in the Shackleton Expanse, an area of space vastly unexplored by both the Federation and the Klingons. Starbase 364, Narendra Station, named after the battle of Narendra III where the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-C was destroyed, serves as the keep on the borderlands for excursions out into the frontier of space.

As the crews of the U.S.S. Venture, U.S.S. Bellerophon, U.S.S. Thunderchild, explore strange anomalies and discover new life while uncovering an ancient civilization and mysterious technologies, those aboard the U.S.S. Lexington will shape historical events for those very ships.

Assignments are still open for Captains and Officers to take their place aboard the bridge and make Star Trek gaming history. Further, local game shops organizing an in-store playtest group will receive starbase status with pre-order promotions for the game’s retail release.

Star Trek Adventures will use the Modiphius 2d20 game system (Mutant ChroniclesInfinityConanJohn Carter of Mars) designed by Jay Little (Star Wars: Edge of the EmpireX-Wing Miniatures Game). Modiphius is also sculpting an accompanying Star Trek miniature figure line, the first to be produced in 17 years. Resin 32mm-heroic 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.

Star Trek Adventures is due out Summer of 2017 – all playtesters will be listed in the rulebook’s manifest.

    I’m confused, when is the game set?
    The first image is TOS, but the blurb suggests something set after the Enterprise-C and the second image shows a Galaxy class, which is consistent with the blurb at least.

      As it is using the 2D20 system, I guess that actual details are not hyper critical to the setting; so it can be used to play any era of Trek. Everything from First Contact, through until the Tribbles devour the Galaxy.

      Going by their work on Mutant Chronicles I imagine the base game will be time period generic and or with a minor focus on the original series.

      They’ll then do books for specific locations, and meta plots covering specific periods. Possibly including the alternate history era that was created for the new movies.

  • Gideon Ernesto

    Very curious whether they will make that Summer 2017 core book release. While working in a rather well protected IP. At least they have some writers with IP experience.

    For Infinity they announced in 2014 a Spring 2015 core book release. They then rolled that core book into Fall 2015 Kickstarter. That was to deliver the PDF in December 2015. By now that is a year late, and looks like it will take quite some time still.
    Doing everything they “sold” in the KS will take many years to come.

    So this Star Treck 2D20 is going to be the test whether they can actually keep their commitments in a well protected IP.
    And the question how they funded this project is of course very interesting, given how many KS projects Modiphius has still not fully delivered. One has to hope that they can financially stomach all this.

  • georgelabour

    Since I’m still waiting for them to carry through on the Infinity RPG I think I’ll sit this one out

    Still they’ve done an adequate job with Mutant Chronicles, and their crossover supplement for Interface Zero was neat so I have high hopes for this.

    • TheWanderingJewels

      Well there is a Infinity RPG on drivethru…would that be it?

      • georgelabour

        That would be the quickstart ruless which are basically the core rules for the 2d20 engine they use, and not much in the way of setting material.
