Description

Boldly go where no one has gone before. In Star Trek: Ascendancy - a board game of exploration, expansion and conflict between the United Federation of Planets, the Klingon Empire, and the Romulan Star Empire - you control the great civilizations of the Galaxy, striking out from your home worlds to expand your influence and grow your civilization. Will you journey for peace and exploration, or will you travel the path of conquest and exploitation? Command starships, establish space lanes, construct starbases, and bring other systems under your banner. With more than 200 plastic miniatures and 30 star systems representing some of the Star Trek galaxy's most notable planets and locations, Star Trek: Ascendancy puts the fate of the galaxy in your hands.

The great unknown lies before you; with every turn is a new adventure as your ships explore new space systems, encounter new life forms and new civilizations, make wondrous discoveries, and face challenging obstacles, all drawn from the vast fifty year history of Star Trek. Will you brave the hazards of Rura Penthe to harvest vital resources, race to develop Sherman's Planet before your rivals stake their claim, or explore the mysteries of the Mutara Nebula on an ever-growing, adaptive map of the galaxy. With an infinite combination of planets and interstellar phenomena, no two games of Star Trek: Ascendancy will ever play the same!

Hours of fun - feels like Star Trek

Heard good things about this game from a podcast so I thought I'd give it a go. After the first game I was hooked! Game play is not complicated, in fact after 2 turns its really easy - the stratgey comes in planning ahead and making sure you protect your flanks.
Having a board that is creted during the game also makes for a deep strategic experience - I recommend finding your first few systems then colonising them to establish a strong empire - don't be tempted to send your lone ship out into the cosmos becuase your likely to lose them.
The game feels like being in Star Trek; it is weighed heavily towards exploration and cultural advancement. Combat is there and is easy to complete but trying to get a Military victory would be almost impossible.
After playing the first few games I quickly purchased the expansions - each one adding to the game except for the Borg expansion; that one literally changes the entire game.
Highly recommended but it is a long play game - no one will be winning this one within the first hour. Also recommend getting the Borg expansion straight up as it allows this game box to be played with only 1 or 2 players instead of the required 3
