To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the airing of the first Star Trek episode, we're going to play some Star Trek games... and watch some Classic Trek!
Star Trek: Panic
Star Trek Panic is a cooperative light strategy game based on Castle Panic that challenges players to defend the U.S.S. Enterprise from enemy attacks.
In addition, the game features mission cards that have unique challenges based on the original Star Trek series as well as character cards so that players can assume the roles of Star Trek icons like Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock.
Star Trek: Five Year Mission
Star Trek: Five-Year Mission is a cooperative dice placement game for 3-7 players who take the roles of crew members of either the USS Enterprise (from the original Star Trek series) or the USS Enterprise-D (from Star Trek: The Next Generation). Each crew member has a different ability and the crew’s abilities differ for each crew.
In these roles, players try to cooperatively solve a series of blue (easy), yellow (medium) and red (difficult) alerts to score points, attempting one of 6 different difficulty levels to win before failing five such alerts, or the Enterprise being destroyed. Players must deal with injuries which lock dice out of play, ship damage that can force players to attempt harder alerts, urgent events that must be completed in 3 minutes, the prime directive, as well as yellow and red alerts that force additional alerts cards to come into play pushing you closer to failing.
Star Trek: The Deckbuilding Game
In Star Trek Deck Building Game: The Original Series, players take on the role of Captain of a salvaged Starship. They will search for new allies such as Kirk, Spock, and other famous Characters, and Explore space to complete Missions and overcome Events.
The game features two separate scenarios of play:
Explorations [Free For All]: Explore Space to complete Missions and Encounter Events. Infection Explorations [Free For All]: Take on some of the most dangerous and lethal Infections, Diseases, and Viruses in the universe while completing difficult Missions and Events. Do you have what it takes to keep your crew alive?
Star Trek [Deck Building Game]: The Original Series features new Basic Character Effects that can be transferred to any of the other Star Trek [Deck Building Game]s for a new experience; the new "Handheld" keyword, which is found on some Maneuvers that need a Character to hold them to be used; and new Draft Mission cards that give players a set of hidden Missions that only they can complete from the start of the game.
