And another RPG bundle - Star Trek Adventures

This is the latest RPG to take its inspiration from the Star Trek universe - I initially thought it was the third or fourth but I was very wrong: this is the eighth! See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Star_Trek_games#Role-playing_games

"This all-new Star Trek Adventures Bundle presents the Star Trek Adventures RPG line from Modiphius Entertainment. Using the 2d20 rules system seen in Mutant Chronicles, Conan: Adventures in an Age Undreamed Of, and the Infinity RPG, the Star Trek Adventures license covers the Original Series, Next Generation, Deep Space 9, Voyager, and Enterprise, as well as all the original and Next Generation films, but not the new reimagined films by JJ Abrams. In Star Trek Adventures the ability to solve problems, deal with moral dilemmas, unearth ancient mysteries, and conduct diplomacy is just as important as being able to command a ship in action or lead an Away Team under fire.

We provide each ebook complete in .PDF (Portable Document Format). Like all Bundle of Holding titles, these books have NO DRM (Digital Restrictions Management), and our customers are entitled to move them freely among all their devices.

Ten percent of each purchase (after gateway fees) goes to the charity designated by Modiphius Entertainment owner Chris Birch, Vision Rescue.

The total retail value of the titles in this offer is US$155. Customers who pay just US$19.95 get all seven titles in our Player Collection (retail value $80) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including the complete 374-page Star Trek Adventures core rulebook (retail price $20), plus the free Quickstart rules and character sheets; three Starfleet division books (Command Division, Operations Division, and Sciences Division, retail $15 apiece, total $45); and three sets of pregenerated characters (retail $5 apiece) drawn from the TV shows: The Original Series, The Next Generation, and Deep Space 9.

Those who pay more than the threshold (average) price, which is set at $39.95 to start, also get our entire Gamemaster Collection with seven more supplements and missions worth an additional $75, including the Beta Quadrant Sourcebook (retail $15), the mission collection These Are the Voyages Volume 1 (retail $15), the introductory campaign A Star Beyond the Stars (retail $10), three shorter adventures (Ends and Means, Call Back Yesterday, and Remnants, retail $5 apiece), and the GM Screen & Player References (retail $20).

I'm not familiar with this system, but having had a quick look I think it's a reasonable version of the Star Trek universe, as good as any of the others that have gone before it. The only problem I have with it is that it was fairly obviously designed as a printed product, not to be read off a screen, and there are coloured backgrounds to some pages that make them a bit difficult to read on anything hand-held, and expensive to print if you need any of the material at your games table. You're getting a lot for your money, and I think I can recommend it.
