Boldly go where no one has gone before. A board game of exploration, expansion and conflict between the United Federation of Planets, the Klingon Empire, and the Romulan Star Empire. You control the great civilizations of the Galaxy, striking from your home to expand your influence and grow your civilization. Command starships, establish space lanes, construct starbases, and bring other systems under your banner. With more than 200 plastic miniatures and 30 star systems representing some of the Star Trek galaxy’s most notable planets and locations, Star Trek Ascendancy puts the fate of the galaxy in your hands.
In Star Trek Ascendancy you are slowly building up the map the way each player wants it in order to win the game for you. Each player chooses a group, they are unique to each culture and have pluses and minuses. Each culture gains extra culture tokens for doing something specific while having a downside. The Federation player gains culture for discovering new cultures and phenomenon but cannot invade other cultures. There are two ways to win: eliminate 2 other players and keep your home world or reach 5 ascendancy using culture. Keeping with the 4x themes: explore, expand, exploit, and exterminate….
The great unknown lies before you; with every turn is a new adventure as your ships explore new space systems, encounter new life forms and new civilizations. Make wondrous discoveries, and face challenging obstacles, all drawn from the vast fifty year history of Star Trek. Will you brave the hazards of Rura Penthe to harvest vital resources, race to develop Sherman’s Planet before your rivals stake their claim, or explore the mysteries of the Mutara Nebula on an ever-growing, adaptive map of the galaxy. With an infinite combination of planets and interstellar phenomena, no two games of Star Trek: Ascendancy will ever play the same!
Will you journey for peace and exploration, or will you travel the path of conquest and exploitation? This game can be played with 3 players aged 14 or older with an estimated playing time of 90-180 minutes. Available here.
