Modiphius Entertainment is working on the first Star Trek roleplaying to be produced in more than a decade.

The move comes as the hit sci-fi franchise continues to celebrate its 50th anniversary around the globe with a slate of initiatives throughout the year.

The game, developed by the team behind other hit roleplaying titles such as Achtung! Cthulhu, Mutant Chronicles and Conan, will challenge players to shape a series of voyages and missions through the Star Trek Adventures living campaign playtest.

According to a release, ‘each player will experience the game differently based on the ship they are assigned to.’

Attendees at this year’s Gen Con in the US will also have the exclusive chance to choose their ship and claim a free Captain Kirk or Captain Picard miniature to use in the game.

European fans will be given the chance to get their own at this year’s Essen-Spiel in Germany this October.

The living campaign playtest will launch this autumn.

“Since I was a kid I dreamed of siting in the captain’s chair and boldly going on my own voyages,” said Modiphius Entertainment’s publishing director Chris Birch.

“With Star Trek Adventures we can all explore our own stories in the worlds of Captain Kirk, Picard, Sisko, Janeway, Archer and many others.”

Under license by CBS Consumer Products, Star Trek Adventures is slated for a summer 2017 launch.
