another, and seeing what happens. With each new consequence, the game begins to take shape." - Benjamin Sisko

Moving the timeline forwards from 2371 to when the Klingon's withdraw from the Khitomer Accords in 2372 the sourcebook also encompasses the next stage in the Star Trek Adventures living campaign.

We are all explorers driven to know what's over the horizon, what's beyond our own shores.

  • Eleven new alien species players can choose from during character generation, including Aurelians, Caitians, Edosians, and Ferengi.
  • A selection of alien starships from the Cardassian Union, the Ferengi Alliance, the Breen Confederacy, and the Tholian Assembly.
  • Guidance for the Gamemaster on running missions and continuing voyages in the Alpha Quadrant, along with a selection of plot components to help plan adventures and several new Non-Player Characters to enhance encounters.

With regards to wings in space, that may be more hindrance than asset aboard a cramped spaceship, not that Federation vessels are cramped.


I cannot begin to express my gratitude for Modiphius' new Star Trek Alpha Quadrant book. Let me start by saying a big =thank you= to TPTB for allowing the animated characters to be in the game. I was always of the oddball impression the the two seasons of ST:TAS are merelly the fourth and fifth years of Kirk's five year mission. BTW: David Gerrold thought that this was true, too.

The Aurelian species sound cool and I hope to see at least a mention of the major species: Andorian, Tellarite, and Vulcan character races.

The nicest thing about this may be something that they are not talking about. If they can use the Caitians, can the Kzinti be far behind? Another character we may see is Arex, who was an Edosian species with three arms and three legs.

Although ST:TAS did not film any more than the promised 25 episodes, the were not "cartoons" at all. Both Children and Adults could enjoy it, even though they were originally aired in the Saturaday morning cartoon slot.

Can't wait for this new book to hit the stands! I inow I will use it!
