Star Trek: Frontiers

Church of Vlaada

Huh…a licensed reimplementation of Vlaada Chvátil’s Mage Knight: the Board Game. Which, yeah, also a license. Kind of forgot that. But aaaaanyway! MK:tBG is IMO the best thing he ever designed. So I’m definitely curious. 

This isn’t his design, it looks like, but I’m sure he’s consulting.

  1. It’s not bad! I can kind of imagine each captain being a different race/culture: Federation, Klingon, Romulan, whatever. Space is space, so you’re probably making contact to earn points. Probably the particular subtypes of location map to broad ST-type challenges, like space anomalies or Borg facilities or whatever. No idea what the final “cities” will look like. 

    Hopefully it’s not a shoot-em-up implementation, which to my mind is the great sin that pretty much every Star Trek game ever falls into. I don’t think Roddenberry really envisioned a shoot-em-up future. Lots of Cold War staredowns with Russkies Klingons and Red China Romulans, though. But I’m kind of old fashioned that way.
