Best Star Trek Game Ever?

I’m a Star Trek geek, I admit it. Well, more accurately I’m a geek for the Original Series and the Animated Series. I have some love for Next Generation – though only towards the end, and after that, well, it kinda lost me. But I still love the Trek.

I’ve also been an RPG nerd for long enough that I’ve got a copy of the original printing of FASA’s Star Trek RPG. I never actually got to play it, though I did have a a campaign in mind for years. So I’m always on the lookout for a good Trek RPG with an eye towards maybe busting out those notes and running said campaign.

As most of you probably know, Goblinoid Games (makers of the fabulous Labyrinth Lord) recently acquired the rights to the “not quite Trek” Starships & Spacemen. And you’d be forgiven for having guessed that’s what this post is about. But it’s not.

Nope, this is all about a little Microlite 20-based gem I just found called Where No Man Has Gone Before.

I’m not going to do a review of WNMHGB – that’s not my shtick – I’m just here to point it out and tell you it’s cool. Don’t believe me? Check out the Red Shirt talent. And the optional lifepath style background generator, too!

Now let’s see if I can’t find a little time to knock out a few officers for the USS Daedalus. That’s my USS Daedalus (NCC 4365), which has nothing to do with any other USS Daedalus you might have heard of before, by the way.

    So what is the best Star Trek RPG?

    • For my money it really is “Where No Man Has Gone Before” – but my interests definitely lean towards a nice campy take on original & animated series original Trek. Your mileage may vary, of course 🙂
