RPG a Day 2019 – Engage

I’ve never played a Star Trek role-playing game, but I’m hoping to change that with Modiphius Entertainment’s Star Trek Adventures (Amazon).

The core rule book is a hefty but engaging tome. It’s packed full of the lore of Star Trek and it’s far too easy to get lost in it as you read. One of my goals for the summer is to read through the game mechanics, roll up a few characters, and pitch a one-shot (or maybe a double-shot) to my gaming group. If they like it, I’d love to run a short campaign consisting of 3-6 episodes set in timeframe of the Original Series movies. Based on our informal polling, that seems to be the time period our group’s most interested in.

2022 Update: I still haven’t run Star Trek, but I have even more Trek books than I had in 2019 thanks to a Humble Bundle a few years back. With Star Trek’s continued resurgence (thanks to Picard, Discovery, Strange New Worlds, The Lower Decks, and Prodigy) I’m still interested in running or playing in a game.
