Money, money, money, money, moooooneeeeeeeey!
Mooooooooooooneeeeeeeeeey!
That’s basically the Ferengi national anthem. For them, it’s all about what they can make money off of and how can they get it as cheaply and easily as possible. And that’s just what they’ll do in order to expand their reach in Star Trek: Ascendancy when their expansion set comes out. It’s that set which we get a look at today.

It’s cool, though. Gamers, on the whole, are pretty cool people, especially guys like Peter over at Gale Force Nine.
