Today I’m here with another Star Trek Adventures review, this time looking at the new Utopia Planitia Starfleet Sourcebook full of everything you might need for starships in your campaign. While there’s already an excellent review (which I entirely agree with) on Continuing Mission, I wanted to give a little more detail. I’ve been looking forward to this for a while and, not to get ahead of myself, it’s well beyond my expectations.Continue reading “Utopia Planitia Review”
Klingon Empire Core Rulebook Review, Part 2
Back again with more Klingon action! I covered the first half of the book in Part 1, then a deep dive into Klingon Houses in a second post. We’re going to finish up the review today with a look at the equipment of Klingon characters, the GM’s side of things, and then some of the adventures in the book.Continue reading “Klingon Empire Core Rulebook Review, Part 2”
STO Spaceframes: Even More Science Vessels
We’re exploring strange new worlds and new civilizations today, as well as featuring a space whale that has nothing to do with Eclipse Phase! Today I’m looking at some of the flashiest, fanciest science vessels in Star Trek Online, some of which are fan-favorites from the extended Star Trek canon in books. Check them out and expand your game’s science capabilities!Continue reading “STO Spaceframes: Even More Science Vessels”
STO Spaceframes: Tier 5 Cruisers
Welcome back to another addition to our growing list of Star Trek Online spaceframes! I’ve got to keep up on this because they keep adding more ships, but today I’m going to talk about some spaceframes that have been around in the game for quite a while.Continue reading “STO Spaceframes: Tier 5 Cruisers”
STO Spaceframes: Agents of Yesterday, Part 3
Alright! We’re at the end of our run of Agents of Yesterday, the time-displaced expansion for Star Trek Online. The first post in this mini-series just looked at starships of the 26th century and what options you had. The second post looked at eight different spaceframes that feature in the expansion, both 23rd century vessels and the 26th century versions they inspired. Today we’re going to look at one of the story’s most compelling details: time travel.Continue reading “STO Spaceframes: Agents of Yesterday, Part 3”
STO Spaceframes: Agents of Yesterday, Part 2
I’m back today with the next post in my Star Trek Online series, bringing you spaceframes from the game’s Agents of Yesterday. Last time I went over the rules for starships in the 26th century but today we’re going to be looking at some specific spaceframes from the expansion.Continue reading “STO Spaceframes: Agents of Yesterday, Part 2”
STO Spaceframes: Agents of Yesterday, Part 1
Back in 2016, Star Trek Online celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Star Trek franchise with the release of the “Agents of Yesterday” expansion. This involved a new faction (Starfleet in the 23rd century) but it was also connected to the Star Trek Online main plot through some time-traveling shenanigans. It might be messy to meld altogether from an RPG standpoint but we’re doing it all so here we go!Continue reading “STO Spaceframes: Agents of Yesterday, Part 1”
Collecting STO Spaceframes So Far
I’ve been really enjoying working on all the different ship types in Star Trek Online and bringing them into Star Trek Adventures. It’s a fun process to open up different options and to see where there are holes in official and fan-created spaceframes. The posts are scattered around slightly but here’s everything so far.Continue reading “Collecting STO Spaceframes So Far”
Happy Enterprise Day!
Today is January 17th, otherwise written as 17/01 (besides in the U.S.) which makes it the perfect day to celebrate the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701! This is a great tradition that I’m glad exists and to celebrate it I’ve come up with a set of new spaceframes from the era of the original Star Trek series.
Jester Dave has previously come up with a bunch to supplement the Constitution class and the Miranda class in the core rulebook. I gathered together his era-appropriate spaceframes in a single pdf for your convenience. Below that is a new pdf with six different spaceframes from the tumultuous Battle of the Binary Stars in the pilot of Star Trek: Discovery. These are the Cardenas class, the Engle class, the Hoover class, the Malachowski class, the Nimitz class, and the Shepard class. Use them for your TOS-era Star Trek Adventures game or as leftover spaceframes from a previous era. And give me feedback by all means!
STO Spaceframes: Pilot Escorts
We’re getting into the more complicated options for spaceframes in Star Trek Online in the spaceframe project. Starting at Tier 5 there are some advanced starship types that I have different rules for. Today I’m presenting rules for pilot escorts and would love some feedback. Post your ideas in the comments!Continue reading “STO Spaceframes: Pilot Escorts”
