STAR TREK: ASCENDANCY (Gale Force 9, 3 players, ages 14 and up, 180 minutes; $100)
The 50th anniversary of the original Star Trek television series has garnered a great deal of attention – and spawned a lot of games to mark the event. One of the most ambitious comes from the design team of Sean Sweigart and Aaron Dill. This new game takes full advantage of the Star Trek mantra “to boldly go where no one has gone before” as players seek to explore the far reaches of outer space and make First Contact with the other races that populate the Star Trek Universe. This is Star Trek: Ascendancy.
