Share This Post

Modiphius Entertainment Ltd. will publish a second edition of its award-winning Star Trek roleplaying game, Star Trek Adventures, later this year with a new core rulebook and a series of game expansions to follow.

The British publisher continues to enjoy a strong licensing relationship with Paramount Consumer Products, adding Star Trek: Strange New Worlds and Star Trek: Prodigy to the license, allowing it to produce game material for both series alongside the rest of the franchise.

A new core rulebook will premiere at Gen Con 2024, and a new starter set will be released in the fall. The core rulebook will allow players to create original characters and starships, immersing themselves in Star Trek stories of their own making. The second edition of the popular RPG will build on and refine the rules from the first edition, and is compatible with first edition supplements and expansions.

The second edition of the game opens up the possibility for players to step outside the Starfleet-focused gameplay and tell stories with the well-known species of the Star Trek universe, including the Klingon and Romulan Empires, in addition to others present across the franchise. With the addition of Strange New Worlds to the license, the new edition will feature art themed around the popular new series.

Speaking about the team’s work, project manager Jim Johnson said: “Phase two of Star Trek Adventures is giving us the opportunity to refine the award-winning ruleset, taking advantage of all we’ve learned and published for the game and for the 2d20 System over the last seven years. And, since Star Trek presented a diverse setting from the very beginning, I felt it important the core rulebook present a more diverse spread of character possibilities beyond just the Federation. You’ll see a selection of fully playable non-Federation species in the core, expanding your group’s gameplay possibilities right from the start.”

Modiphius has had the strongest-supported licensed Star Trek tabletop roleplaying game to date, with seven years of titles giving fans extensive coverage of the source material and gameplay options. A solo-play version of Star Trek Adventures entitled Captain’s Log released in 2023 and was an immediate hit with fans and retailers alike, giving players without a group or a gamemaster the ability to create Star Trek stories about their own original characters.

Chris Birch, Modiphius founder and chief creative officer said, “You can see it in people’s eyes when they talk about their Star Trek Adventures games, that this RPG is really bringing something quite special to the table. Seven years ago we set out to tell a new story in the Star Trek universe, and to bring us all together to explore strange new worlds. So whether you’re a new crew coming to the table or old friends, I think you’ll find the second edition of Star Trek Adventures will be the beginning of your own five-year mission with all the wonder that entails.”
