    I'd have to agree with that one. Best Star Trek adventure ever, and one of the all-around best RPG adventures as well. In fact, I wrote and illustrated a LUG/ICON adaptation for the adventure,...

    According to whois.net, it's a domain registered through GoDaddy. Dunno how ferociously they defend their customers' identities.

    Well, the composing of the new, improved "old" setting goes apace. Back in the first few years when I was converting my game to the ICON system, I wrote a conversion chart to redo FASA characters an...
  4. A new beginning OR Star Trek, a Space Odyssey

    Well, my long-running (2001-2020) campaign has come to an end. This is the campaign that began with Star Trek Relic, in the Dyson Sphere. Since then the characters, Lt. M'Rel and Ensigns Seth and...

    I've always maintained that the captain should be a PC. This means of course that the players should be able to work together without the captain bossing the other PC around just because he can,...

    Seems whoever came up with the stat block didn't bother to read the actual article. The article says that the average Dayen lives 75 years, but the stat block says "death by aging- 60-70 years." Why...

    Luckily, in Canada the Orville is still on Space, an extended basic cable channel. Like Discovery, we don't have to screw around with any shady fly-by-night subscription channels.

    I tend to agree. While Disco has gone out of its way to eliminate anyone connected to Star Trek and especially anyone who's a Star Trek fan, Seth MacFarlane is unabashedly a fan with a capital F. Not...

    The TNG Toolkit does indeed have a screen. All the basic information needed is duplicated with the biggest difference being the graphic style. Yes, you can use the TOS screen to run a TNG game.

    The latest episode, the one with the Union-Krill peace talks, was everything Trek stands for. I still love the show.

    I just logged in after several months absence. It's been confirmed by John Eaves in a now-deleted Facebook post that the new USS Enterprise had to abide by the strictures of Bad Reboot's license in...

    I'm not sure it would work the way envisioned. Against one starship, sure, but take one of the fleets from the Dominion War with a coordinated, timed simultaneous attack and ZAP! overloaded shields...

    Um, you didn't actually read the credits in the .PDF, which read:

    I recently tried to join a game on Roll20 and found it almost impossible to get into - very poorly set up and unintuitive. Also, it's done via live chat, so you have to be available when they want...

    I've done some calculations based on the cutaway image (same one Omega1967 presumably used) and rescaled the top view to the section, so based on a quick calculation, the ship's overall length is...

    I'm going to surprise everyone and agree with Waveman. Go forward - the next logical step is the 25th century. The 25th century uniforms already established in Voyager should be discarded, though,...

    Actually, the Discovery series is produced under the Bad Robot licence, so technically it's an offshoot of the movies. But yeah, the whole post-Viacom disintegration has completely screwed up the...

    It seems that CBS has a problem with lying to viewers. First it was that "Benedict Cumberbatch is not playing Khan". This was a flat-out lie. They should have gone with the vaguely misleading rumours...

    Or at least admit it's a different timeline. Embracing the multiverse and exploring the concept would go far to appease purists and neo-fans alike. Something similar to what Enterprise did with the...
