GF9 has recently announced two new expansions for the “Star Trek: Away Missions” board game, shifting its focus to the Original Series. This marks a notable change from the game’s previous expansions, which were based on “The Next Generation” series.
“Star Trek: Away Missions,” a tactical, miniature-based board game, allows players to lead Away Teams through various missions. With the introduction of these new expansions, players will now be able to engage with characters and elements from the Original Series.
The new expansions introduce teams led by Captain Kirk and Commander Scotty. Each expansion brings unique gameplay elements to “Star Trek: Away Missions.” The Captain Kirk expansion features characters such as First Officer Spock, Dr. Leonard ‘Bones’ McCoy, and Ensign Pavel Chekov. The Commander Scotty expansion includes Communications Officer Uhura, Lieutenant Sulu, and Lieutenant Leslie.
A key feature of these expansions is the introduction of the “beam away” ability, adding a new layer to the game’s strategy. This update is expected to offer players new ways to interact with the game and enhance their playing experience.
With these expansions, “Star Trek: Away Missions” now offers a total of eight distinct Away Teams, each with its own playstyle and characteristics. These additions are poised to attract both long-time fans of the series and new players to the game.
The expansions are scheduled for release in March, expanding the universe of “Star Trek: Away Missions” and providing more options for player engagement.
