Star Trek Adventures Strange New Worlds

Modiphius Entertainment has announced more information about the upcoming Star Trek Adventures roleplaying game supplement releases, as well as news of its development team. 

The second compendium of missions Strange New Worlds is available online from the 24th of October 2019, and hitting friendly local game store shelves in November 2019. This adventure supplement contains nine missions exploring the strangest and most challenging missions on dangerous planets and weird environments. Strange New Worlds follows on from the huge success of the first adventure compendium These Are the Voyages, and provides fans with missions from the Enterprise, Original Series, and Next Generation eras. Some incredible writing talent was recruited, from well-known Star Trek fiction writers such as Christopher L. Bennett (The Captain’s Oath, Greater Than the Sum), to roleplaying game luminaries like Jason Bulmahn (Pathfinder 2nd Edition).

This book brings the Star Trek Adventures timeline up to 2379 and provides players and gamemasters with information on locations, species, starships, and NPCs in the Delta Quadrant, for use in their continuing missions.
