In the fall of 2020, Modiphius Entertainment announced that we had secured the rights to create Star Trek Adventures material for both Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: Picard. We immediately started to develop product plans to support these two series along with all the legacy series we already had available to us. Due to development schedules, the Player’s Guide and Gamemaster’s Guide were the first two products we produced that contained content related to these two series.
I’m very excited to announce that the first crew pack for Star Trek: Discovery is now available, detailing the key characters from the landmark first season, including Michael Burnham, Captain Lorca, Emperor Philippa Georgiou, Ensign Sylvia Tilly, and more. The crew pack includes a species sheet for Kelpiens, so that you can create player characters like Commander Saru, a ship sheet for Discovery herself, and, as an experiment, a selection of supporting characters to round out the pool of characters your players may wish to use in your campaigns and missions.
In the coming months, we’ll publish additional crew packs for Discovery season 2 and 3, as well as a crew pack for Star Trek: Picard. The characters are presented in different stages of their careers, and show how their game statistics can change gradually over the course of a season of play (or even a shift of 900+ years!). I hope you enjoy playing with these character packs as much as the writers and I did developing them.
Thanks to writers Jessie Earl, Michael Dismuke, Al Spader, and Aaron Pollyea for their efforts on this crew pack, and special thanks to Joseph Rousseau and the Star Trek Timelines team for the use of their art.
Thanks for reading this article, and thank you for your interest and support of Star Trek Adventures! Keep frequencies open for news about additional STA products in the coming months. Live long and prosper!
