Star Trek-Inspired Captains Game Revealed

The Last Frontier is more interesting than ever, and now Czech Games Edition (CGE) explores the cosmos with its own Star Trek-inspired board game titled Starship Captains. The new game is designed by Peter B. Hoffgaard and has players sitting in the captain’s chair of your very first star cruiser as you lead your crew on dangerous missions across the galaxy. You’ll promote and train your crew of cadets, ensigns, androids, and officers throughout your journey, and each will have special roles and abilities, though you’ll also need to upgrade your ship’s engine and boost your reputation with different factions as well.

Starship Captains is a game for 2 to 4 players and games last around 25 minutes depending on the number of players. It will retail for $59.95, and as you can see from the artwork below, the visuals capture the Trek vibes perfectly. The game will launch at Essen Spiel later this year and will be released in North America in the fourth quarter of this year. You can find the official description, box art, and all included components below.
