The USS Constellation appears just outside the Galactic Barrier.. A group of aging mercenaries is in the area & must respond. These former United Star Fleet marines served under the command of Commodore Matt Deck this Constellation holds a very,very dangerous secret. An adventure for 5-7 PCs.
They're expecting a Planet Killer to come out of the barrier.. The library computer entry on the Planet Killer in the CD-ROM game Star Trek: Star Fleet Academy mentions a school of thought suggesting that the galactic energy barrier may have been constructed ages ago to keep such planet killers out of the galaxy.
The warriors need the PC's help
After fighting a running battle with a group of renegade androids the PCs have finally made it to the bridge where they find the ring master of this mad house. A member of the race that the Enterprise crew has fought before.
One of the PCs
Total body count 2 PCs from Neural parasites, 3 merc red shirts, & almost one Klingon NPC. The SWN system is very, very, lethal. Lessons learned for my Thursday night group.
This ship is still out there & will be causing more mayhem in the months to come in my Thursday night Stars Without Numbers game! More to come!
I've spent a good chunk of my weekend with the original run of Star Trek. Out of many of the vintage television shows its one of the easy ones to run with OD&D or any of its clones. Why? Because its iconic & very accessible to folks. Given its history & what not its easy to see who, what or where with the series.
My personal favorite system for trek is Goblinoid with a healthy mix of Terminal Space. The ideas presented in SWN are solid & because of my Thursday night crew this was the reason why I choose it for this weekend's game.
