Apparently a first edition. Slightly mildewy.

Has anyone created a Starship Combat cheat sheet yet?

THANK YOU, HOMOPHOBIA
Apparently the same sex kiss on p.155 was Just Too Much for one KS backer, who walked his copy right over to Mayhem Collectibles in Ames, IA, and sold it to the store. So I got it for 20% off and in brand new condition.

I had a great time running Star Trek Adventures last night at The Source, for our monthly Saturday Night Space Opera event. We had five adults (including two dads!), and three kids at the table, for a total of eight players plus yours truly, the GM. (Here, you see +Erik MORNES helping with Lifepath generation for our two Betazoid PCs.

People were good natured about Lifepath generation, but I would never do that again with a table with eight players (everyone had a copy of the chargen chapter, but still!).

The fan produced reference materials for players and GMs were very helpful, and helped me build a custom GM screen.

Overall the Momentum/Threat point mechanics were nowhere near as confusing and whirly as I feared they might be. Next time around (because there will be a next time - I'll be running 3 more sessions in October alone), I'll call for a bit fewer rolls.

THERE ARE BOTH "CREATION SCIENCE" TYPES AND ENVIRONMENTALISTS IN THE HOTEL. What should I do? Release the Kraken? Thaw out the prions in the hotel room fridge?

DIFFICULTIES! We all have them, but today I have a mechanics question! I gather that difficulties in the range of 1 to 3 are fairly common, but how high should a GM go? About 5? Did I miss it: is there a table or a section for GMs that gives general guidance on setting difficulties?
