Ops Manual

posted Jul 10, 2018 16:25:44 by SteveHanson
Join Starfleet’s miracle workers or its steadfast defenders with The Operations Division supplemental rulebook for Star Trek Adventures, this November. Leading the writing team is Chris McCarver (Marvel Cinematic Universe Guidebook) alongside Andrew Peregrine (Dr. Who: Adventures in Time and Space, Firefly Roleplaying Game), Jack Geiger (Scarred Lands, A Song of Ice and Fire RPG), John Snead Blue Rose, Eclipse Phase, Mindjammer), and Sam Webb (Star Trek Adventures).

Players can expect new choices for their security and engineering officers, as well as detailed background information on the Starfleet Corps of Engineers, Starfleet Intelligence, and even the elusive Section 31. The supplemental rulebook also expands the equipment available to Starfleet personnel, with new rules on their inclusion in the game. Gamemasters also have their choice of new resources for running operations-focused missions, and a new selection of named NPCs, as well as engineering and security archetypes, including Luther Sloan, Leah Brahms, and MACO soldiers. Miniatures fans will be in for a treat, with the Red Alert rules for miniatures combat using a streamlined version of the 2d20 system, developed by prolific wargame designer Mark Latham, and Sam Webb, line developer for Star Trek Adventures.

The hardcover supplement is priced at £24.99/$34.99 USD, available to pre-order in September from Modiphius.net and your friendly local gaming store, then shipping to customers and stores in November.

Fans who purchased the PDF Collection on Modiphius.net or DriveThruRPG.com will be able to enjoy a PDF copy of the book as soon as the pre-order begins, and pre-order customers will receive a PDF copy as soon as they order their hardcover copy.

Those eager for more can expect The Sciences Division supplemental rulebook to follow in friendly local gaming stores in January, followed by the Alpha, Gamma and Delta Quadrant sourcebooks throughout 2019.

Star Trek Adventures uses the Modiphius 2d20 game system, designed by Jay Little (Star Wars: Edge of the Empire, X-Wing Miniatures Game) and developed by Nathan Dowdell (Black Crusade, Only War, Mutant Chronicles 3rd Edition, Conan: Adventures in an Age Undreamed Of, Infinity The Roleplaying Game). Star Trek Adventures, under license from CBS Consumer Products, has had an incredible reception from critics and fans alike, and the core range is still available from both Modiphius.net and friendly local gaming stores. To create the first new Star Trek RPG in more than a decade, Modiphius brought an all-star development team together, comprised of veteran Star Trek artists and authors, world-class game designers, and brand new gaming talent

Great news! I do have one question: It mentions the red alert rules, those won't be in the book, will they? It seems like a waste of space since those have already been released for free.

The free version was, like, version 0.8. They're a beta, if I recall correctly. The version in the book will at least be 1.0, I'm guessing, maybe 1.1 even. You'd have to ask Nathan, since he wrote them, IIRC.

Think of the free Red Alert rules as a beta test and sneak peek of what you'll find in the Ops book.

Yay, but I'm a bit disappointed that the rest of the Quadrant books have been pushed back till next year. I was looking forward to the Alpha Quadrant book.

I was looking forward to the Alpha Quadrant sourcebook myself. So I'm curious why it was pushed back.

BTW any chance of a dominion war sourcebook down the line too? with the 2371 start date I imagine plenty of people are going to get involved in that

Dominion War will likely be covered in the Gamma Q book rather than a separate supplement.

it's not mentioned. will the Ops book give us rules for designing starships?

also can we expect a similar deal to the command book with a fleshing out of division related focuses, new talents, and new starships?

New focuses and talents; no new starships. Command and the core contain pretty much every canon Federation spaceframe and the quadrant books will handle most of the other non-Starfleet spaceframes.

Do share a list of spaceframes you'd like to see.

So no new spaceframes, but will we finally get the ability to design our own from scratch?

Chayenne Class as sucessor of the Constellation Class
and out of couriosity
Challanger Class
Prometeus Class

Blake, sorry, the ops book will not have specific rules on designing starships. It will still have the other options asked about for characters, just like the command book

Will there are new Carrer-Events, which I missed in the Command Book?

No new spaceframes? What about the Intrepid and Ganges from Enterprise? The Ptolemy and Saladin classes, mentioned in the Command book? The Archer and Conestoga classes, mentioned in two of the Living Campaign adventures? Or the Cheyenne and other classes, seen in the wreckage of Wolf 359?
