I heard that the initial printing includes the three base factions PLUS the Ferengi. Is this true or eroneous?

Thanks in advance.

Sounds like a lie to me.

Ferengi are the second expansion. I feel confident saying there is no chance they are in the base box.

Perhaps in future years, the game will become so popular that it has a new edition with different/more factions in the base box. But for now it's Federation, Klingons and Romulans.

Thanks. I haven't seen any hint of the game at my FLGS yet. So I had no idea. BTW, if Ferngi is the second expansion, what's the first? Dominion?

Yeah, I'm curious where you heard that.

The base comes with just the 3.
Cardassians are the first expansions
Ferengi are the second expansion

There are 9 planned for next year.
They have mentioned that Borg and Dominion will possibly be NPCs. The Andorians have been the only other species mentioned as an example of what they could bring out.

I think it was on a podcast...can't remember which one. They were talking about how it sucked it was only 3-players and then it went on to discussing a possible 4th faction attached to the base game as a first printing promo. That sort of thing is not unheard of to try and drive sales of the first printing (Cryptozoic does that a lot). But I just wanted to confirm in case I ordered online.

The 1st printing promo is a set of 15 extra TOS based discovery cards.

I dunno... if anyone thinks that perhaps, taking a look at the GF9 website might provide an answer to this question, one would find this:

Quote:
Gale Force Nine is pleased to announce the summer release of Star Trek™: Ascendancy, the strategy board game of exploration, expansion and conflict between the United Federation of Planets, the Klingon Empire, and the Romulan Star Empire. The competition for supremacy widens later this year with introduction of two expansion sets, the Cardassian Union and Ferengi Alliance.

there is also a card in a set that says "the tholians may ignore this card" so i would assume the tholians are one of the 9 next year.

Oh cool, I had heard that there was a mention of Tholians on one of the cards but I didn't know it was this clear!

i was very glad to see it. i think the tholians would be a pretty cool addition to the game.
