Star Trek on the Tabletop


Recommended Posts

My love for Trek is closely followed by my love for tabletop role playing games, so I thought I would share my resources and maybe turn folks on to yet ANOTHER way that they can enjoy Star Trek.

"Far Trek" is a TTRPG based on the Original Series.
Based on Mike Berkeley's "Where No Man Has Gone Before" (more on that one in another thread) with a little bit of Fate and Microlite thrown in, all you need to play is a copy of the free PDF, and some six sided dice.

Checking the "Far Trek" website, the author, C. R. Brandon hasn't posted in over two years, but the file(s) are still available.
When I first discovered Far Trek about 4 or 5 years ago, it paid to follow him on social media or get his blog on your RSS feed, because he would have, for lack of a better word, popup sales, where you could actually purchase (at cost) a dead trees nice little paperback of Far Trek.  I have two, but I am mad that I didn't get the animated series cover edition.  The interior of all the books were the same, only the cover changed.

It was wonderful.

Go over to the right hand side of the page, click on the Far Trek edition with the animated series cover, and hey presto! You have about a dozen files to download and start playing Star Trek on your dining room table tonight.

The core rule book is less than 150 pages, is easy to read and understand.  
If you are looking for a fast and easy way to get into Star Trek RPGing, then this might just be your huckleberry.

But I can hear you now, "Bill, ain't nobody got time for all that!"

As someone who loves his RPG's easy peasy, I understand! I hear you!

So, I'm going to give you "Lasers and Feelings".


Throw in some new names, a new ship, spend 20 minutes brainstorming with your fellow players, create the universe, drink something tasty, eat something with cheese on it, and you are playing Star Trek, baby!

But, let's say that you have more brain power than Denebian Slime Devil, but less than your average Talosian, and want something between one page and 150 pages.  Bill has got the hook up for you!

It's the previously mentioned "Where No Man Has Gone Before", another high camp, TOS based, free RPG.

It's got core rules, or you can download the fancy pants illustrated core rules, a supplement, a life path generator to help your lazy [...] cadet get through academy, or even a quick start pocket mod.

It's all there for the downloading!
Grab your dice and get to gaming!
