Star Trek: Catan, the latest game in The Settlers of Catan series of board games will be released this fall exclusively through Target stores. Outside the US, Mayfair has selected exclusive distributors.
Designed by Catan creator Klaus Teuger, players explore and develop worlds necessary for the expansion and survival of the Federation using character cards featuring ten TOS characters. Available characters are Captain Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Uhura, Sulu, Checkov, Scotty, Chapel, Rand and Sarek. Each character has two special powers that the holder can use on their turn.
Star Trek: Catan replaces the resource cards with dilithium, titanium, food, oxygen and water. Cities and villages are replaced with large and small space stations. The robber is replaced with a Klingon Bird of Prey. Roads are swapped for Constitution class star ships. Instead of having hexes the Star Trek: Catan board has planets packed together in a tight group.
Star Trek: Catan is being previewed at Gen Con as you read this.
