As regular readers will know I've become a bit of a fan/obsessive over Attack Wing.
Which made Friday's announcement from Wizkids somewhat worrying. At least initially.
It appears that in February 2016 the game manufacturer will be delivering us Star Trek: Frontiers, offering a whole new spin on the franchise through roleplay and strategy. According to the promo material that landed this weekend, it will offer something new with players beaming away teams to planet surfaces and getting a different game each time.
Apparently it's going to be a bit of a spin on Mage Knight which is not a game I'm familiar with in any way so for myself it'll be a great, unexplored experience to dive into. I suspect for those people who have played that game it's not going to be a big deal. The Venture Tile System is the piece which will probably be key in making this stand out from Attack Wing and is the element borrowed from Mage Knight. This means that every game is constructed effectively…
It is my hope this finds you well. I have not attempted a blog here yet and thought I would start by inviting you all to an event we have organized, taking place in one week. We have the honor of hosting Michael Jan Friedman Saturday July 25th at 4pm, Tir na Nog 5 Penn Plz, New York, NY 10001.
This is an informal gathering where we will break bread with Mr. Friedman, discuss his Star Trek and numerous other literary works, and Mr. Friedman will have copies of his work for sale, which he will sign for us.

Hey you all, hope you have been good and "trekking on"! So I am back, so is Pearadyne Labs. It's not so active anymore, but it works for me in my free time anyway. As always it's open to anyone who may like to play along! Anyway related to PL and Sic. I made "Dilithium", as close as one can get! "Dilithium-K". :)
after many, many, many months of crisis and poverty. We have a hell of a journey ahead
trying to re-connect with the 1,276 followers per wk that we lost…………..GOOD LUCK !
Winston de Lugo, or "Timothy" in COURT MARTIAL, Ep#15 of STAR TREK'S original series.
We're talking The Original Series here not movie refit and a model that I know Ben Robinson has seen as a real labour of love.
Painted out in the grey that fans will be familiar with from pictures of the original model currently undergoing restoration she is, as I expected, very plain. The models from the 1960's were indeed very simple and straightforward. Detail was minimal and hey, this is a show that won't go beyond the decade.... No need to get too technical.
All the weight with this one is in the saucer with the secondary hull and nacelles all in plastic. Just be warned that you might end up with some scratches on the…
June's Attack Wing expansions have arrived and after a week of getting to slam them through their paces, let's look at the results...
As usual there are three diverse ships to add/subtract/mix and match with your existing fleet(s) although how many of us have been gagging for the Bajoran scout ship Ratosha may well be the biggest mystery of the year.
Probably one of the first model versions of the vessel which could usually be found ferrying just about anybody from Bajor to Deep Space Nine, I can only think players will be wanting to buy a few of these to go alongside their Bajoran interceptor(s). A low squadron points starship (18), the Ratosha won't get you anywhere at pace but with your options for this faction fairly limited you're going to be stuck with very few other places to go. That low total does mean that an "average" 40 squadron points per ship is going to get you a tidy amount of upgrades which you might want to choose from the accompanying pack.
Options for captain come from the season two trilogy opener…
