In Star Trek: Captain’s Chair, each captain has their own unique strategy. Go head-to-head, or play solo to find out who truly deserves the captain’s chair.

Star Trek: Captain’s Chair is an upcoming game from WizKids. You’ll step into the shoes of an iconic captin from across the Star Trek galaxy and history. Manage your resources while you command ships and away teams and carefully maintain alliances along the way.

The game is designed by David Turczi and Nigel Buckle, designers of Voidfall and the Imperium Series. With designers like that the helm, you know there’s a great game to be had here.

Each of the six captains have a unique and asymmetric deck of cards each themed to that captain’s strengths and personality, allies and assets. And with that comes a unique strategy that will unfold different based not only on what cards you have available, but what cards your opponent plays as well.

Choose from:

  • Jean-Luc Picard
  • Benjamin Sisko
  • Michael Burnham
  • Koloth, The Dahar Master
  • Sela
  • Thy’lek Shran

In true Star Trek fashion, aggression will not will every game. You’ll need diplomacy, exploration, and science to be a true leader. Each captain excels at different aspects, of course. So, find out which suits you best, and practice while playing solo in order to crush your enemies in head-to-head play.
