I saw this too.  I'm not too keen on the minis though.  They're characters from the various series.  What I'd like in a mini would be a more generic officers so I can play my character, not paramount's.

yeah, I'm hoping there's a 2nd wave of minis coming with generic starfleet, cardassians, breen, and a bunch of other minor aliens.

 

oh and borg! it is a bit weird that the borg box has no borg.

Man I loved FASA Trek. One of my favorite versions, warts and all. Still have the core set and a couple supplements, as well as the Ship Combat simulator. I keep looking on Ebay thinking about fleshing out the collection...

I loved the way the PCs ran the ship as a team - but the Engineer was always the one in the real worry seat. ::): (There were times when I was tempted to say things like 'Sorry Captain, I canna give you the power for the phasors! Every thing is going to *Rolls randomly* Shields! Wheee!'

 

But my favorite character was a starship captain based on Jack Nicholson.

Not getting the cube either, but definitely looking at the core rules and DEFINITELY looking at the minis! Probably going to buy over a couple months for the first release. It's gonna be expensive few months!

I was interested in this but the price point for the PDF or the book is just too rich for my blood.

This is the same company that is putting out the FallOut miniatures game later this year and I have the same concern about that.

I admit I'm a bit curious to see if that price drops. Two different companies have bombed badly with the Star Trek RPG license in recent years. I'd like to see someone do well with it, but they sure seem to be launching a hell of a lot all at once.

Silly question, but does anyone know of minis that could be used as decent bridge crew for between the end of the movies and start of TNG?

 

we have a set of the "away team" minis, but they kind of have the wrong mix of aliens for my party (and keep breaking if we look at them funny)

Hmm, post-movie? So no mini skirts on females? That rules out Matakishi or the old Mega Miniatures bridge crew (which is mia anyways; I thought it went to Armorcast, but can't find it on their site). If you want to go totally overboard with the mini skirts, of course, you could try Space Vixens from Mars (who also have some really nice not-Klingons, among other things, but not 'civilized' Federation staff afaik).

 

I think Victory Force has a range that's stylistically kind of between TOS and TNG, but never ever seen any of their figs live.

Victory Force miniatures, maybe.  I am not sure if that will work.

 

And, Arkady beat me to it!

So, super late to the party here, but if anyone wants to get an idea of how the game plays, check out Geek and Sundry's live play show Shield of Tomorrow which used this ruleset, it's pretty great.

Heroclix has had several Star Trek runs with minis with very poor paint jobs but decent sculpts.

      My crew of five drew an earliest hotel registration time of 2:00 this afternoon, which wasn't enough to score a room in a connected hotel.  It looks like we'll be out by the airport again this year, so that will place a premium on traveling light, and shopping responsibly. 
       
      Next task, decide whether we're driving, and how to configure two different miniature war-games for air travel.  Perhaps this is the year when Fat Dragon fold-flat buildings will cover the table...

      Huh usually I put one of these up sooner than this. Just been busy I guess.
      Who's all going?
      How did you fair in the hotel lottery?
       
       So Sunday was event registration.
      Did you get into the events you wanted?
       
      My group did fairly well at the hotel thing this year even though we had to split the group this year. both hotels are fairly close.
      I got into most of the events I wanted. had some issues with the priority system preventing me from getting into events because it conflicted with another event that I would only be going to if I hadn't gotten into an earlier time. Yet some how it did allow me to sign up for 2 Speed paints that conflicted with other events that I got into. (and I only realized one before paying)
      Also I just a bit ago remembered that I wanted to do a Frostgrave event but they are all sold out already.

      Hey I'm attempting something crazy for Gen con this year, and I need a little help. I am doing a diorama for the MHE painting competition, and the title for the piece is kind of an important part of it. Is it common or acceptable to have the title engraved to put on the base? If not, what is a good way to make the title known? This is something I've never done before so any advice (including general diorama advice would be appreciated. I wasn't planning on doing a WIP, just puting the picture up in Show off after Gen con assuming I get it done in time.

      When I decided to enter the Painting Excuses contest I thought about painting Kyrie as Little Red Riding Hood (Pingo made mention of it when she came out and the idea has been rattling in my head ever since). But as I prep-ed her, it occurred to me that it would take very little to turn her into a barbarian version of Princess Mononoke. I mean, wolf cape!
       
      So I filled out her skirt with green stuff and covered the wolf face with a round blob to make the mask. I ended up wishing I had had made the mask bigger though.
       
      I used the rosy skin triad on her, blackened brown, shield brown, ginger cookie... and some tan on her armour bits. I know I started with ginger cookie for the cloak, and ended with white, but I don't remember the in-between colour (painting journal, what's that? )
       
      And as usual, my camera washed out the work I did on the white. Honest to Sophie, there's actual shading and whatnot on that fur cloak
