WizKids, maker of quality board games and miniatures, is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Star Trek: Frontiers. Designed by Andrew Parks, Star Trek: Frontiers puts a new spin on the bestselling board game Mage Knight, by Vlaada Chvátil.
“Like the Mage Knight board game, Star Trek: Frontiers allows players to explore areas that are new and different each time they play. I can’t wait for Star Trek fans to start commanding their Federation and Klingon ships as they encounter Romulan Warbirds, send carefully chosen away teams down to unknown planets, and challenge the might of the Borg,” said Frontiers game designer, Andrew Parks.
“The Star Trek universe opens up a huge variety of thematic options for a designer, and I specifically hope fans of Star Trek will enjoy the work that Andrew has done to bring the system to the world of Star Trek,” said Vlaada Chvátil, creator of the original Mage Knight.
Similar to Mage Knight, in Star Trek: Frontiers, players will follow multiple scenarios leading them on a journey into the unknown. They will earn Experience Points and further their Reputation as a Captain while commanding their Ship, recruiting new Crew Members and encountering some of the undiscovered mysteries of space.
The Star Trek: Frontiers board game features both competitive and cooperative scenarios and is designed for 1 to 4 players. Solo game scenarios are also included at the end of the Full Rulebook.

I am a huge fan of games designed by Vlaada, this is heading towards the must buy category very quickly, this coming from a none Star Trek fan! It doesn’t hurt that Andrew Parks knocked it out of the park with Core Worlds (best space deck builder PERIOD).
