Modiphius announced that they are going to be launching a playtest for a new Star Trek RPG and miniatures line at this year’s Gen Con. This is good news for Star Trek fans hungry for a new RPG, since the last one was launched in way back in 2002.
Star Trek Adventures will use the Modiphius 2d20 game system and this “news comes as Star Trek fans worldwide celebrate Star Trek’s 50th anniversary in 2016.”
“Fans of the legendary Star Trek television series’ and films will not only boldly go to the final frontier, but they will shape the voyages and missions through the Star Trek Adventures living campaign playtest. Each player will experience the game differently based on the ship they are assigned to and attendees of Gen Con will have the exclusive North American opportunity to choose their ship, as well as claim a free Captain Kirk or Captain Picard miniature, while supplies last, when they register for the playtest. Registration will take place daily at the Modiphius booth #2737 in the Gen Con exhibit hall August 4 – 7, 2016.”
Additional sing-ups will be available online in late August.
