WizKids Beams Star Trek Expeditions Into Stores This Week

Boldly go where no game has gone before! Well, that isn’t truly right. Let’s say you can boldly go where no game has gone in a while…

Coming from WizKids this week is Star Trek Expeditions.

From WizKids:

You take on the roles of Kirk, Spock, McCoy and Uhura responding to an invitation from the Nibian government to open discussions about the planet joining the United Federation of Planets. However, now that the Enterprise has arrived, you find the President of Nibia less happy to see you than the invitation suggested, and Mr. Spock has detected evidence that another starship may have recently been in orbit.

Lead your away teams made up of crew and resources from the Enterprise to solve the major story arcs plus key side missions before the Klingon Fleet arrives or the lone cloaked Klingon Battle cruiser in orbit destroys the Enterprise and her crew. Three difficulty levels, random side missions, player strategies and a unique branching mission tree ensure every game will be a unique memorable experience.

This product is designed as a non-collectible, non-blind, all-in-one-and-done game, but is built upon the “expandable” board game model meaning that down the line, new missions and Crew Members will be made available for folk to play other “episodes”!

Contents:

  • 6 Highly detailed, fully painted HeroClix miniatures
  • 14 Stardate cards
  • 42 Energize cards
  • 21 Captain’s Log cards
  • 25 Captain’s Log Supplemental cards
  • 15 Regular and 5 Major Discovery tokens
  • 4 Away team cards
  • 4 Turn order cards
  • 3 Custom dice
  • 1 Game board
  • 1 Score tracker

Wiz Kids makes some interesting titles and I’ll look forward to checking out Expeditions. My only concern is that Knizia’s track record of late hasn’t exactly been stellar…
