Resistance is futile. Add this boxed set’s distinctiveness to your own collective.

That’s right friends, Star Trek Adventures, the upcoming Star Trek RPG from Modiphius (who have previously done Mutant Chronicles among others) is around the corner. And we’ve got a look at their upcoming collector’s edition–but it’s not just any boxed set. It’s a Borg Cube set. Inside you’ll find everything you need to boldly RPG where no one has RPG’d before.

As you can see here it comes with everything you could want. You get a “1701-D” Collectible Edition Core Rulebook, featuring the saucer section of the U.S.S. Enterprise-D, you’ll also get 4 sets of Star Trek Advenures miniatures, which is probably just about enough to represent a season’s worth of redshirts. You’ll find the Original Series Crew, the Next Generation Crew, and a set of Klingons and Romulans, but no word on which series Klingons we’ll see. I hold out faint hope for Original Series Klingons because they’re just so cool and stylish and have the best facial hair in the galaxy–but I’d put money on it being a ridged forehead extravaganza. You also get a foam tray to keep them in, sized perfectly for one of the drawers in the Cube.

What roleplaying game would be complete without its own dice, though. And the Borg Cube set has those in spades. Well, actually it has them in Command Red, Operations Gold, and Sciences Blue, as well all the custom tokens you’ll need to get your games going. Need something to play them on? The Cube provides, including “geomorphic deck tiles” which are there to create a map of your starship, a padd of character sheets and a big poster of the Alpha and Beta Quadrants of the galaxy.

Plus look at how it folds up nice and compact like that. I have to say this is one of the most on-theme collector’s sets I’ve ever seen. Definitely worth checking out. We here at BoLS are excited to see how the Star Trek RPG pans out. As I’ve said before this is the season of sci-fi, and Star Trek is about as sci-fi as you can get. Unless someone out there comes out with like a Rendezvous with Rama type game (which, I know I’d like to see–are you kidding me, hard sci-fi, first ecnounters? what’s not to love) this is some of the best sci-fi we’ll see all season.

There’s a special Borg sphere edition of the game–but that one just goes back in time and tries to sabotage the launch of Zephram Cochrane’s warp ship.
