Star Trek: Attack Wing is a tactical space combat miniatures game that uses the Heroclix system and features prepainted ships from the Star Trek Universe. Wizkids has licensed the FlightPath maneuver system from Fantasy Flight Games, to create a unique game of exploration and combat between all the well known (and even some less well known) star ships from the Star Trek Universe!

Showing that Wizkids has a fantastic line up in store for fans of tactical combat games and fans of the Star Trek universe alike! Ships in Star Trek: Attack Wing will have their own unique captains, crew upgrades, the ability to divert power to other systems (a Star Trek cannon staple), multiple firing arcs, and even rules for epic 3 player battles! Of course no game in the Star Trek universe would be complete with Cloaking Devices and a storyline involving… The Dominion!
WizKids Games will release their new Star Trek: Attack Wing miniatures game at the GenCon gaming convention in Indianapolis, IN (August 15—18). To commemorate the release of Star Trek: Attack Wing, WizKids Games will offer attendees a limited promotional Captain Card of Khan Singh. This card and its corresponding game tokens will allow players to assign Khan Singh as the captain of one of their Star Trek: Attack Wing ships. This “Khan Exclusive” will be included with the purchase of Star Trek: Attack Wing products at the WizKids Games booth and will also be available as part of the prize package for players who participate in Star Trek: Attack Wing mini-tournaments being run throughout the convention. Did we fail to mention there are at least 4 factions ready to go…?
That’s not all though, this September, WizKids will bring storyline based Organized Play to Star Trek: Attack Wing through a six-month event series centered on The Dominion War! Every month, Star Trek: Attack Wing players will be recreating the major battles in the struggle between the Federation and the Dominion.
Participating stores will be offering competitive and participation prizes throughout the event. According to the GTM article “Each month, a new Resource will become available for players to add to their squad. “Operation Return” will provide an ELITE ATTACK DIE as a participation prize. This die provides the extra power that could mean the difference between victory and destruction.”
