Anyone remember this? As a kid I would watch TNG whilst doing homework - because it was on at 6pm, every bloody day. I don't even really like star trek, but I remember quite enjoying this. It felt like playing an actual episode. 

 

A quick nostalgia buzz whilst watching discovery and here I am with this:

I've never actually played this one. Is it the Decipher one? Their Star Wars game was pretty good back in the day, but I wasn't really prepared to get into another CCG at that point in my life.

 

Is this any good? I had a quick look on Youtube for a playthrough or a rules explanation, but the only thing of substance I could find was 480p and had a guy calling the game "Star Trek Cards", and he was terrible.

Yep, it's the decipher one.

 

It's a bizarre game, you lay out a row of planets (etc) each of which is a mission. And you seed dilemmas under each. Then you play ships and crew at outposts until you can man a ship and send it along the spaceline undertaking the missions.

 

As a kid I played it at the same time as MtG, and it wasn't nearly as good, but it felt like you were actually playing the show. I've agreed to play it again next time me and my old school friend meet up, so I'll let you know more then.

I had that! 

 

I loved Star Trek - think I just bought the starter set thinking it was Coooooolllll

 

And then just looked at the cards with no one else to play with and not spending anymore money

We had some of these when I was a kid. Money and distance from the town with the shop that sold it meant that I was cobbling together ramshackle crews to satisfy the requirements of my favourite ships. Anyway, Ars Cardboard did an article on it last month:

If sealed cards are going cheap on eBay I might get some for nostaliga's sake.
