“Captain’s Log, Stardate 306391.6. Q has abducted five captains from Starfleet and has transported us to a mysterious alternate dimension to play a game of wits and battle. We are all to try and prove who the best captain is by fulfilling three of his arbitrary goals— whoever does so first will receive the somewhat trivial title as ‘Q’s favorite captain.’ It is unclear what Q has in store for us, but one thing is sure: it most certainly won’t be easy.”
Play as Captains Kirk, Picard, Archer, Sisko, or Janeway in this incredibly unique take on the classic game of Risk. There are three game modes. Easy is essentially normal Risk for individuals who haven’t played before. 2-Player is a customized variant of Advanced for fewer players. Advanced is for veterans and is the heart of Star Trek Risk - features include the ability to choose crew members, each with special abilities; command tokens used to take actions, fulfilling three arbitrary goals given by the erratic space-jester Q to win the game; and preparing for his unpredictable events. These goals may entail taking over certain sectors of space, destroying alien species, or attacking opponents. Thrown into the mix are the aforementioned events: these shake things up by helping or hindering players (such as increasing a player’s attack power or limiting the number of moves they can make), or such randomness as spreading deadly Tribbles throughout the galaxy!
All components included are very high-quality, with 225 custom plastic starships and shuttles, a beautifully-illustrated Star Trek playing board, along with captain, crew member, and planet cards illustrated in a similar style to the TV shows. 14 Q’s Quest and 30 Q-Vent cards keep gameplay interesting and change objectives up every time, allowing for plenty of re-playability! For 2-5 players.
