Star Trek: Attack Wing is a multi-player table game set within the Star Trek "universe". It is produced by WizKids and premiered at retail in August 2013.

Players assume the roles of commanders who customize, upgrade and assign famous crew members to their starship fleets. Players and their fleets then compete against each other in various combat and exploration scenarios during the game.

These fleets are drawn from factions such as the Borg, the Dominion and the Federation. Each fleet has its special statistics, abilities and maneuvers displayed on separate "HeroClix Combat Dials". For its gaming mechanics, a unique version of the "FlightPath maneuver system" is used, under license from Fantasy Flight Games. [1]

Many of the game's painted starship miniatures are very similar to those produced for the Star Trek: Tactics game but Attack Wing's Federation ships do not have names or registries painted onto their hulls, allowing them to represent more than one vessel of the same class. A number of the ships feature new paint schemes or are molded from translucent plastic. Unpainted versions of some of the miniatures were also released earlier in the Star Trek: Fleet Captains game and subsequently in the Star Trek: Frontiers game, the latter in a scaled-down form.

Attack Wing introduced a number of canon starship designs that had never been produced for the public as licensed miniatures. Some starships have names and registries taken from non-canon sources including Star Trek novels and the Star Trek Customizable Card Game.

Additional gaming scenarios, unique starships and a space station are playable on maps distributed through a series of Organized Play Program tournaments. [2]
