Description
Designed by Mike Elliot (Thunderstone) and Ethan Pasternak Star Trek Fleet Captains can be played one-on-one or in teams of two with one side taking the Federation and the other the Klingons. Players build their fleets and their resource deck-each side has 12 different ships. A versatile hex map allows for many different board set-ups that can accommodate all sorts of strategies.

The ship's Clix dials track power settings and damage throughout the game. Flexible systems allow captains to put all power to weapons, or if a ship is damaged another setting will send all available power to the shields.

The game includes 50 Galaxy location tiles, 200 Command cards (100 Federation, 100 Klingon), 50 Encounter cards, and 76 Mission cards. Each player gets to draw 40 Command cards when constructing a fleet, while the Encounter cards, which range from worm holes to new civilizations that players can explore.

Review by Binder.

1) What it is?
A game that represents very well the concept of Star Trek: lots of exploration and influence, but also a good fight when one is needed.

To Be Takei

This is a documentary about George Takei, which has surprisingly little Star Trek footage in it. Shatner, Nimoy, Nichols and Koenig are all on hand as talking heads, however. It DOES have quite a few clips of Takei in his other appearances, both pre and post Trek (and concurrent).

Most of the documentary is actually about his gay activism and his play about the Japanese interment camps (and his experiences that inspired it).

It was an interesting enough 90 minutes, though I would probably not bother to revisit it.

Star Trek: Fleet Captains was my favourite new game of the month last year and it's held up nicely. we've played a number of 6 player games and have had a lot of fun. There are some balance issues (no one wants to be the Romulans) and the space tiles are getting a little tired looking but I've had a lot of fun with this over the last year. Which is lucky, because it looks to me like it's going to be replaced by 2 games this year: Star Trek: Frontiers and Star Trek: Ascendancy.

As I predicted Skull has seen a fair number of games as a filler. It's not to everybody's tastes, but most people are willing to play a couple of rounds even if they don't like it, as it's so short. A winner.

Tsuro of the Seas - haven't played it again, haven't got any desire to.

I upgraded some of my ships with attack wing miniatures (mostly federation ships), leaving me with the unpainted ships that came with STFC. Just wanted to see if anyone would be interested in them

I have enjoyed teaching this game at DTC the past few years, but time to move on to other games. Someone please give this a good home.

This game often gets a run out at Knavecon. Romulan expansion will also be there. Very, very thematic, but also very luck driven. Great fun, if you area a star trek fan and you go into it with the right attitude.

2-3 players, time approx 45mins per player.

First time out in a while on this one. Seemed the federation was left alone as the Romulan and Klingons tried to out cloak each other. The federation were focused on science and influence and tried to stay away from the others. Not much for events but Allen was told by the Aldereans to leave immediately...must not like romulans.

RONAN'S NUMBER 8.

Ronan: Jolly fun! Three players (with one of the expansions) pushes players closer together and forces interaction. This is loads of silly, thematic fun.

Sean: Agreed. Players in the two player game could head off as Star Fleet and take a boring non-interactive route to victory but visiting planets and beaming people up and down.
I only left it out because I knew it would be included in Ronan's list.

This has a double whammy -- licensing and a box full of expensive plastic models made possible by economic conditions that aren't stable and are even changing now. I'm not sure ST:FC will be reprintable in 2020, let alone 2040. I think this entire kind of game will seem as quaint as games with hand carved wooden pieces seem now.

Sit beside the breakfast table Think about your troubles Pour yourself a cup of tea Then think about the bubbles
mbmbmbmbmb

I’m 55. I’ve one son, he’s 25. I was born & raised in Massachusetts, & live here now, but over the years I’ve lived in MA, NY, IA, CA, Madrid, Tunis, and Panama.

2) How many badges have you created?
I’ve created 322 so far. I earned this mb a few months back, but it just hasn’t been awarded to me yet.

3) Are you creating badges mostly for a specific interest group? How do you choose what badge you will create next?
I’m all over the map. Mostly I create badges I want, whatever comes to mind next. As a Trekkie I’ve found I’ve made a bunch for the various characters in those shows.

4) Which was your very first approved badge?
mb This was requested by my friend Jeff the person who introduced me to BGG, and was one of the two guys doing the podcast. He and Mark were part of my game group. Mark still is. Unfortunately we lost Jeff to cancer a few years ago. So the badge is a little bittersweet now. Gameopolis Podcast is no longer being made, but the old episodes are still available here on BGG.

Edit: It turns out I misremembered what my 1st badge approved was. I checked & it was actually this badge mb.

5) Which of your microbadges do you like most and why?
mb it represents what I enjoy most about board games; my friends.

6) Which of your microbadges took the most effort and/or time?
I’ll leave this unanswered since answering honestly would involve swearing about someone else.

7) Which of your microbadges sold the most? Do you have any idea why?
mb It’s a popular game.

8) Do you have a goal regarding badges?
mb

9) What tools do you use to create badges?
Gimp

10) Are you a professional graphic designer?
I was until I changed careers about 8 years ago. Still, microbadges are not close to what I used to do. I worked big; billboards, large in-store point of purchase displays and the like. My favorite was working in steel, plastic, & neon, designing signs. Since then I’m afraid I’ve gotten behind on the latest & greatest graphic software. I studied painting way back in college, and have recently gotten back into that.

11) If you had to give an advice to new microbadge designers, what would it be?
Eat lots of blueberries. They reduce risk of Alzheimer's disease, they're good for regulating your blood sugar, they're good antioxidants, and they're blue!

Bonus Round - for the ones that want to know or say more

12) Which badge's sales (good and bad) surprised you?
I made this mb for myself, & never figured I'd sell any. Presently 10 own it which is a surprise. I mean I'd already made this Ogden Nash fan badge mb & I expected folks would buy that before they'd buy the Hippo microbadge. When my son was little he had a board book with the Hippo poem & he'd have me read it to him over and over again. I must have read it to him a thousand times. So I made it for that personal memory.

I've always been surprised this mb hasn't sold more. I mean, it's Woody.

13) Who is your favorite microbadger?
Daniel
United States
Orange
California
flag msg tools
mbmbmbmbmb

He makes fantastic badges. He has the ability to critique and be supportive at the same time, that's a real skill. Basically, he's a good guy.

14) What is your favorite microbadge from other designers?
mb Daniel made it at my request; because the author, Shannon Appelcline of the Designers & Dragons books is an old friend of mine.

Other favs would be mb mb mb by Daniel, mb by Geert, mb by Julian, & mb by Barry

15) How long did it take you to get your mb and your currently highest designer badge?
I'm not really sure how long it took me to get the copper, I can't remember, probably a several months.

My 1st microbadge was approved Sept. 21st 2011 and I think I've completed the requirements for mb (hope to receive it soon), so that's 3 1/2 years.
