Bruce introduced Mike and Phil to this game set in the Star Trek Next Generation Universe. Mike quickly grabbed some Klingon War-like crew and a new ship and then set about attacking and destroying Phil’s ships every time a Battle occurred. Phil managed though to take a lead on VP’s thanks to having a more diplomatic crew and Bruce too pursued a less militaristic path. Bruce though relied heavily on certain characters who suffered some bad luck and were not able to help him at the right moment. Phil had some bad luck with his ship being attacked by star ships drawn as events which weakened him. Eventually though Phil was able to get a superfast ship and keep out of trouble more easily. Mike steadily accrued VP’s mainly it seemed through defeating any star ship foolish enough to attack him be it a shuttle, hospital ship or a raider vessel. Bruce benefited from VP’s when Phil and Mike mutually destroyed each others ships. Finally though Phil was able to take a convincing lead with a big 100VP event only he could match and then soon made it to the finish line to claim victory. A good game and certainly fun and challenging to play!
