Hello everybody. Some years ago (more than I like to admit) a friend of mine showed us an Star Trek card game that I really liked. The problem is that none of the Star Trek games here in the database seem to be the one I remember.
Each player used a deck with cards of the three factions (Federation, Klingon, Romulan), that included character cards and events. I think that the goal was to reach a destination card, avoiding the attacks of your enemies, but I don't remember.

Perhaps I'm talking about the Decipher CCG, but the card artwork is not as I remember it, I reckon that each card included the symbol of the faction. Besides, I don't remember dilemmas or missions.

Can you help me, friends? Does a game like this exist?

Thank you so much.

If you bought cards to add to your deck, it may have been one of the Bandai deck building games for Star Trek.

The decipher CCG had what you are describing. The main point of the game was to score 100 points. You could do this by completing missions and sometimes by attacking enemy ships (I believe this was introduced with he Borg). Each mission had a certain number of dilemmas that you had to pass by having personal with the rights skills, strength, intelligence, etc. this is the only Star Trek game I can think of that would have been out several years ago, but I could be wrong.

@herace: Thank you for adding me to the list. I hope it's useful.

@RichardU: Thank you for your contribution, but the game I'm talking about is way older. It's been perhaps 15 years since I played, hence the hazy description...

@jurney85: Thank you for the idea, I'll check again, just in case something clicks...

Definitely sounds like ST:CCG 1st edition. The original starter set had the Federation, Klingon and Romulan affiliations -

Keep in mind that there were two different "editions" of the ST CCG. The original edition ran for many years but eventually became rather unwieldy. Decipher rebooted the game with a new card design and modified rules. Some of the second edition cards were backwards compatible with the first edition.

No, attacking your opponent's ships was in the game from the start. There were restrictions in that the Federation couldn't attack except in retaliation (or they had a card that specifically allowed them to) and the Romulans couldn't attack other Romulan ships. Klingons could attack whoever they liked .

(Not taking joy in correcting you, just clarifying in case it stimulates the OP's memory a little).

There is a wealth of information on both the first and second edition of the Decipher Star Trek CCG at http://www.trekcc.org/.

Boxes of booster packs can be had dirt cheap as well.

Thanks, what I meant was that attacking ships didnt give the other player points, but that this was introduced with the Borg. Attacking was always a part of the game.

I just bought in eBay a combo box of starters and boosters of Decipher's Second Edition. Watching the images of the cards I remembered: The cards from my past had that square in the middle with each Character's abilities.

I really think this is it, now.

Thank you a lot, pals.
