The sold hundreds of copies at Gencon and had hundreds stacked up at the end of the convention. Has there been any update as to when the game will be available at distributors and retailers. I've pre-ordered it and really want to see it before my Labor Day game day. Anybody that has information please respond.

Yes, two weeks ago, the publisher tweeted that the current date was looking to be late September. I guess it's possible that the date slips again, but I believe that's the most current word we have from GF9 directly.

Technically as long as it's before Sep 22, it would still be summer.


Yeah, there appears to have been a delay for the base game, as the original estimate was August. I'm not sure if the delay affects the expansions or not, but the GF9 store still lists the expansions to be out in October.

Thank you all for this info- I was about to try and contact CSI since they list August and I've had it pre-ordered for some time...

pretty frustating, since the guys i talked to @ the GF9 booth @ GenCon said both the base game & first expansion were sitting at the dock waiting to clear customs before going to distributors.

It escapes me how the base game can be stacked up for customs inspection when they had "hundreds" at GenCon, unless the publisher paid air freight to get a first wave in time for the con, and the rest came by container.

Since this seems to be the case, I hope both the base game and Cardassian expansion reach distributors simultaneously.

It would be a nice gesture for GF9 to also offer the 3D starbases for retail orders in view of the delay, but that would surprise me.

If that's the case in USA, I am wondering when will the game be available in UK/Europe? Any info? So far online shops use late September 2016 as the prediction date.

i expect the european release date to be the same as for US, they likely ship to both simultaneously.

Yeah, I was told it would be out in a "week or two" when I asked at Gencon. That, and the general negative reaction when I asked how it was with 2p, convinced me not to purchase on the spot despite being a massive Star Trek fanboy.

So will the expansions drop at the same time? Any ETA on them?
