"Space…the final frontier,
These are the voyages of the Starship Enterprise.
Its five-year mission: to explore strange new
worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations,
to boldly go where no man has gone before."
In STAR TREK: The Role Playing Game, each player assumes the identity of a character in the STAR TREK universe. While controlling the actions of his character, the player leads him through one adventure after another, facing new challenges and unknown dangers. Each game is an ever-changing story as players solve near-impossible puzzles, complete dangerous missions, or simply battle to survive.
The game may be played by 3 or more people, age 12 to adult.
