Star Trek: Shiawassee

Star Trek: Shiawassee is a science fiction campaign set in the Star Trek Universe after the end of the Dominion War. It uses the ICON rules system, published as the Star Trek, Star Trek The Next Generation, and Star Trek Deep Space Nine role playing games published by Last Unicorn Games. All characters play the roles of the crew of the Danube Class Runabout, the U.S.S. Shiawassee. The Shiawassee is assigned to a small base in the Dyson Sphere (from the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "Relics") that is often cut off from the vast resources of the Federation and Starfleet.

A word about Star Trek role playing game systems

Star Trek has been published under different game systems through the years. In the eighties, it was published by FASA. The ICON rules were first published in 1998 by Last Unicorn Games (LUG) as the Star Trek The Next Generation Role playing Game. Although Last Unicorn Games was bought out by Wizards of the Coast in 2000, ICON still enjoys popularity, and has some excellent support on the web. Decipher also published a version of the Star Trek Role Playing Game using a system called CODA (also used in its Lord of the Rings role playing game).

I choose to use the ICON rules. It is a D6 based rules system, with easy to grasp mechanics and a cinematic feel to it. Copies of the Core rule books for Star Trek, Star Trek The Next Generation, and Star Trek Deep Space Nine role playing games published by Last Unicorn Games can still be found in used game stores and on Ebay.

Star Trek: Shiawassee 01 Series Premiere: The Vanished

While en route to their new base of operations on the frontier, the crew of the Danube Class Runabout, the U.S.S. Shiawasee, must investigate the enigma of Federation Deepspace Research Facility 39, a special scientific research station that has gone inexplicably silent, its staff and crew mysteriously vanished.

A Star Trek Adventure for 4 - 6 players. Characters can be made before the game, or pregenerated characters will be provided as well. I will be available an hour before the game starts, for a character generation workshop.
