    [Star Trek Adventures] Bridge Station and Ship Damage Reference sheets

    Our group has found these sheets I made to be pretty helpful so I thought I'd post links here as well in case anyone could use them. I've made a BUNCH of reference sheets to help with ship combat in terms of what each bridge role can do in their turn. I've also made sheets to keep track of...

    Star Trek novels - what to read?

    I haven't read one in years, and there's such a massive variety out there that I don't know what is and isn't worth reading. I especially want to read about Starfleet at war, and if there's any war books set in the TOS era, great (like, a non-Discovery perspective on the war with the Klingons)...

    Wherein I talk about Star Trek: Discovery

    I was not here during the first season run of Star Trek: Discovery, referred to as Disco moving forward. As such I did not get to participate in those initial discussions but never-the-less, I have opinions on the subject. And it is these and my personal impresssion of the series that I would...

    [Stars Without Number] Star Trek?

    I have wanted to run an original series style Star Trek game for awhile and one thing that keeps coming up is Stars Without Number. Would running such a game be possible? I did some Googling to see if anyone had done such a conversion but haven't found anything yet.

    [Star Trek] Further Picard Details

    More details for the setup for the Picard spin off in THR (......Spoiler Space.......) . . . . . . . . So dealing with the fall out from the destruction of Romulus? You know what? I'm totally here for that. There was a lot of build up for conflict between Romulans and the Federation in Next...

    Building my religion

    Have any GM's out there ever tried to build an in-game religion from scratch? I am considering writing and running a campaign centered on the FASA STTRPG Romulans supplement. In this version, iron age equivilant Vulcans were transplanted onto a new homeworld by a super advanced alien race...

    [Star Trek Adventures] Ship choice

    My IRL gaming group is having fun with the Tutorial adventure and I think they will want an actual ship when we get to Nadenda station. We are playing in the default 2371 timeframe, so it could potentially be an Akira, a Galaxy, an elderly Miranda or its Nebula successor, or a brand new...

    How do Star Trek RPGs give players enough to do?

    How do Star Trek RPGs manage to capture the captain/crew dynamic without it being dull for characters like Chekov and Uhura? In other words, the captain gives orders and the subsidiary characters follow the orders. Doesn't that make for somewhat one sided roleplaying? Especially in the bridge...

    [Star Trek] The Most "*This* is TNG" Episodes?

    Back in the old [VLTP] Star Trek - Skip original? thread, I postulated an "Essential TOS" episode list - a way to express to the uninitiated what made TOS what it was and what it became, in as few episodes as possible. The trick is to capture the iconic ideas, style, tone, and character...

    Star Trek Adventures Resources for the table and online

    We have a couple of STA games running right now, one of them mine, and I keep finding cool resources, so I thought I would share them here. These are particularly handy for STA as the rule-book tends to spread the information around a bit. Please add ones I have missed. There is a particularly...

    [Star Trek Adventures] Adventure Seeds!

    I'm trying to get my GMing mojo back, and I thought a good way might be to come up with some good seeds for STA games. Then I thought while I was at it I should post them here in Open, where people could chime in, offer critiques, or post concepts of their own. Anyway, here goes with the first...

    Star Trek Intergalactic

    Welcome to Star Trek Intergalactic. The premise is simple: Run through Star Trek Voyager. The plot is mostly the same, some of the bridge crew has been moved around and the players have created their own characters to take charge of the bridge. Each episode is an entire episode of Voyager. The...

    What's good in Trek fiction?

    I decided, not long ago, to jump into Star Trek novels. After reviewing the "timeline" I picked the Destiny trilogy due to its apparent importance. Amazon had the combined trilogy for $75. Screw that, Kindle edition for ten bucks. It's quite enjoyable so far, I'm about 40% of the way...

    🎨 Creative [Star Trek] Science Ship Adventures?

    I am going to be running a Star Trek Adventures game and am hoping to get a few mission/adventure nuggets from the community. The ship is a small Nova-Class Science & Survey ship whose primary mission is Planetary Survey within the Shackleton Expanse (The base setting for the STA game), in...

    Can a godlike character function as more than a plot device?

    As context, I’m GMing a Star Trek Adventures campaign, and I’m pondering how to do a Q episode. I’d really like Q to function as more than a way to put the players/ship into a bizarre situation they’d be unlikely to encounter otherwise. So often, these nigh-omnipotent tricksters are just plot...

    The Final Frontier: Star Trek theme, classical music and sampling

    This CBC Music video is from 2013, but I only found about it several months ago. I don't know if it has been posted here before, but it's so good it deserves to be reposted. I like everything about it: the topic, the way they shot it, the credits. Everything. I won't spoil it for you, in case...
