Just an excellent deck building with some extra mechanics. Very solid Star Trek atmosphere. The biggest surprise of this year. The only downside is a weird 80's style rule book - not intuitive at all, no examples. Eventually you find out that you can find everything in the rules, they are just quite badly written.

I played the demo of this game at the 2011 Las Vegas Star Trek convention and knew I would buy it as soon as it was released. After dozens of plays, it is one of my favorite games! I like the Klingon Civil War scenario. It is more balanced and a little faster paced than exploration. The deck building works well and the Star Trek theme really comes out.

So simple and so fun. My wife hates Star Trek, but has played this at least a dozen times with me in the last two months. So simple my eight year old can and does play. Combined with the Next Phase edition, this is my favorite game right now!

This is the personal favorite in my list of deck-building games, slightly in front of Thunderstone; right now my wife and I can´t stop playing it; 3 different scenarios, which play completely different; cool ways to handle the cards and tweak your deck perfectly; we played 10+ games now and believe me, you´ll get a good feeling for adjusting the chaos you feel, when you play the game for the first few times; not to forget: WE DON´T ARE TREKKIES, BUT LOVE TO SEE THE NEXT GENERATION TV SERIES; take my rating down, if you don´t like that ...

This will likely go up. I love Star Trek, and this game makes me feel like I'm playing the tv show. I like that it has three different scenario types to play, and the characters and card interactions make for a fun time! Even in one game that went rather long, I never felt like it went -too- long. That says a lot!

FUN !! A decent deck-builder with a Star Trek TNG theme, and I think it's FUN !! As for the thematic illogic of why Federation is attacking Federation in the standard scenario, I am treating it as a Starfleet sparring exercise.

Med-good for 2 players.

I needed something to satisfy my crave to play the old STNG:CCG, and this does it. I hope more expansions come.

Warning: Rulebook is confusing. The 2.0 rules are a little better.

This is my favorite solitaire/cooperative game. The competitive games, meh ... but the solo/coop game is genius!

*****************************************************

Played my first learning game tonight. I will wait until I play a few more games before I rank it. I like the deck building as you go mechanism and the ability to "thin" your deck as you go as well to concentrate the better cards you have acquired along the way. The rules are a little sparse, but I was able to figure out most of my questions through logic. 10-13-2011

Played my first Borg game last night. We also played a competitive game as well as sort of a learning game for the other party. The Borg cooperative game was a lot of fun. It took us a while because we could not upgrade our ships. By a while I mean 3 hours. I think this is easily overcome by starting each player with a random 25 point ship in addition to the special ability starting ship each player normally receives. I would like to see more co-op scenarios for this game. If the designers don't deliver, maybe we'll see some fan based content.

I played a couple of solo games last weekend using some ideas from the forum section. There is some real potential there too. 10-20-2011 AM

I increased my rating a tiny bit because the homebrew solo rules I have been messing with have been giving good solo play results. I posted them in the forum. 10-20-2011 PM

We played another Borg scenario with two players. Once again this was a lot of fun. I may be branded a heretic, but I think I like this particular scenario better than the LOTR deck building game. I continue to play with the solo rules for the standard game and recently played a solo game of the Borg scenario too. All good times! 12-23-11

I'm just a sucker for deck building games and here is another really good one.

Improve your starship's bridge to capture a bigger & better spaceship in order to defeat outer space enemies and the other players.

Like other games in the genre, player's start with the same base hand, buy and upgrade. There is also an explore Outer Space similar to Resident Evil's explore the Mansion. and the available buys are similar to Ascension's where a variety of singular cards are for purchase . A mix of the genre, yet feels new and refreshing.

A good amount of interaction. Some card text, but not overwhelming. A co-op version we didn't play looks interesting. Hopefully it plays fast because players can die and leave the game. Like Resident Evil there is also a Team version.

Interesting death penalty--junk up your hand with lowly
ensigns.

Some are enthralled with the strong theme. It's immaterial to me--the mechanics of play are all I care about. There is a logical fighting mechanic where the ship with the most speed strikes first.

The box: Obviously designed for many future expansions. Although we are adults playing, cards bend easily--one of them during shuffling! I was forced to sleeve--the fit in the box is snug. Very disappointed there are NO badly needed indexes.

All who played the game liked it. Can't wait to play this again--soon--and it is going to get a lot of play!

Deck Building Games--My order

Star Trek (After 1 play, on top--new sweetheart for the moment)
Resident Evil (I love this game, but harder to get to the table than Nightfall, Ascension, Quarriors!, or Puzzle Strike).
Nightfall (Easy to get to the table. Not enamored with the Martial Law Expansion)
Puzzle Strike (Every time I play this, I enjoy it more than I think I will.)
Dominion (this tumbles with the expansions)
Thunderstone (I like this game, but hard to get to the table.)
Ascension (Others bring it to the table frequently)
Quarriors! (Others like this one better than I)
Heroes of Graxia (Going to sell)

(Have yet to play A Few Acres of Snow or Eminent Domain.)

Edit: So far this game does take longer than the other deck building games. If playing with newbies, best to reduce the win points required, to 250 or 300.

This is my first deck building game so I have little reference to compare it to popular titles like Dominion. I am biased because I like Trek but this game is pretty good on mechanics and challenge. It also has three different scenarios, free-for-all exploration where you accumulate points.

The theme for the most part makes sense as you acquire specific characters and abilities in your deck, but don't expect some sort of simulation quality to the theme, you will often have characters from different factions in your deck and certain Starship maneuvers have to be acquired (Shields, Warp Speed, Sensor Scans, Transporters) there's also the fact that your flagship is upgraded by persuading the other ship to join you through your diplomatic abilities.

On the whole it works, the game's pace could be improved a bit, but I'm sure this is due mostly to lack of gaming experience on the participants. Familiarity with the rules and the deck will speed up play, but the learning curve is likely less harsh than say Race for the Galaxy (Where it's absolutely vital to know what kind of high scoring cards you can combine your other cards with).

Surprisingly deep and immerseive deck-building game set in the TNG universe. Excellent use of variable missions, powers, and mechanics.

Tough to get your deck boot-strapped, but there is a lot of content here and a well thought out execution. Art style is wonderful, and the game does great work with the overall license and feel.

The multiplayer co-op vs the Borg is awesome

Love this game! I have played this game for hours, and it never gets old. I did however have to edit the rules a bit to keep it fair and interesting. I didn't like how the Federation could not attack first, nor that you could not mix your decks without a treaty. Modifying this greatly improved game play for me.

This is actually a pretty neat DBG; there is a ton of variety thanks to the bajillion different cards and the different scenarios, there is space combat between the deck and the other players, you can upgrade your ship and crew, and there are a bunch of different currency that thematically make the game interesting (diplomacy, attack, shields, speed).

Some of the screencaps for the cards are of poor resolution though, and the way the starbase cards are laid out, there's a lot of randomness that makes it hard to use any sort of real strategy. Still, it's a pretty neat game if you like Star Trek and/or deck builders.

Great light deck building game, that is a lot of fun when you take into account the luck factors and just enjoy the theme and game. The mechanics are well done, although the luck of the draw in upgrading your flagship seems to be a problem.

I've played 6 times now, and enjoy it more and more with each play. Still have yet to try the Borg and Klingon decks. Looking forward to future expansions.

Like everyone says, a mix of Dominion, Thunderstone, Nightfall, and Ascension as far as deckbuilding. But, what I like about this one is the themed scenarios that you can play outside of just the Exploration (basic competitive) mode. The co-op Borg Invasion scenario is pretty tense while the team-based Klingon Civil War adds the co-op/competitive edge. The Exploration mode does leave a little to be desired in that the Space Deck (random encournters) is a bit limited with the variety of Events and there is no bonus or penalty for mixing factions/ships (ex. Federation personnel serving about a Ferengi ship with Romulan characters). Exploration is just a mechanical game rather than a Star Trek TNG themed one...

I wish I could give this game a higher rating, but the game mechanics are not as tight as they should be. The theme is great, and should be enjoyed by Star Trek TNG fans, but there are better mechanistic deckbuilders out there.

This feels like it should be higher than a 7.5 but that's where it falls on the bgg scale for me. I'll go for long spurts playing this game and long spurts ignoring it. The battles are clunky and there's still something missing but I can't put my finger on it. Also, thematically it's all over the place. But still, a great deckbuilding game.

I like the game and would like to play it a bit more. It adds some cool stuff to the Dominion-style deckbuilder and feels a heck of a lot more thematic, especially for the TNG geek in me. It could probably have used just a tad more streamlining and playtesting, but I'm hesitant to be too critical after one play. I may have to buy the Original Series game when it comes out.

I don't care - I like this game! I would play more often, but it does have a problem of whoever gets a starship first is most likely the winner. And it can go long. But it's Star Trek! And deck-building! And it's not a horrible Star Trek game! I would like to play the variants at some point.

This feels a lot like a themed version of Dominion, except with the added mechanic of space battles. The battles themselves are pretty simple (they're just state comparison > lower stats lose).

There are a few ways to play this game, and we've only tried the 2 player competitive version.

We definitely bought this game for the theme (we play while watching TNG). It's fun for us, but I don't think non-TNG fans will be very happy with their purchase.

Pro -

- fun mechanics. similar to Dominion in flow/thinking (aka youll catch on quick) but with combat, events and missions.
- tons of varied cards to build your deck unicity that keeps things interesting.
- Great theme.
- 3 different games types for co-op (Borg), versus (Exploration), team play (Klingon Civil War)
- quick action and not much down time once everyone is on the same page
- really high replay value, for me (not super into them), for a DBG

Con (Huge) -

- horrid literature for learning the game. so many important facets of the game arent explained specifically or exampled. online tutorials are a must.
