I’d like to offer you all a fun new RP opportunity, for Metaverse and non-Metaverse UFS members alike: some sessions of the tabletop roleplaying game Star Trek Adventures.

Even if you’ve never played a tabletop game like Dungeons and Dragons before, it’s easy to pick up and start playing. It’s a rules-moderate, RP-heavy system designed to enable players and their Game Master to tell stories that feel just like a Star Trek episode. So, a lot less monster-slaying and a lot more “strange new worlds.”

I’ve been running STA weekly for over three years and 150+ sessions. I’d like to offer up a few one-shot sessions for 3-5 players each.

While I run my own plots in campaigns, there are some of the premade standalone adventures by the game’s publisher, Modiphius, that I like to use to introduce people to the game. All you’d need to do is show up, pick a character from a group already set up, and jump into the story! Sessions would run about 3 hours each, including a half hour or so of introduction to how to play.

Groups can play STA online for free. We’d be using Discord for text chat and a free web-based tabletop emulator called Roll20 for maps, character sheets, and dice-rolling.

I’m happy to run these a few times over the next couple months, for anyone who wants a taste of what STA’s about. From there, if there are people interested in an ongoing campaign, I’d want to consult with the Joint Chiefs about how a Roll20 ship might fit in with the UFS overall.

I’d like to offer up these dates and times, and I’d be open to others – so if you want to play and these times don’t work for you, just let me know. I’m also happy to answer any questions you might have!

I’m kaseido#1011 on Discord, kaseido.quandry@gmail.com, and Kassiequandrii Resident everywhere in UFS and in Second Life.

To sign up, just reply with the session you’d like to play in. You can sign up for more than one! Each session will cap at five people.

Oneshot One
Your Away Team needs to salvage an observation mission gone wrong on a planet on the verge of warp flight

Sunday July 24, 7-10 AM SLT or
Thursday July 28, 5:30-8:30 PM SLT


Oneshot Two
It’s the Kobayashi Maru, but with another Starfleet vessel deep in the Romulan Neutral Zone

Sunday August 7, 12:30-3:30 PM SLT or
Friday August 12, 11 AM-2PM SLT

Move along home! :ds9:

I'd love to have you, Tiron! Pick a time slot - or, if none of those work for you, give me some ideas of what might, and I'll put something together :)

Hey, this is coming together!

There's still plenty of room for anyone interested, and if you can't make these times, just let me know, and I'll do my best to work something out!

I'll keep a running count here for everyone's reference.

RL scheduling is the natural predator of RPGs! :D

If you ever do know a couple weeks out that you've got a time slot, I'll do my best to get a group together. I knew it was going to be really hard to find a time for everyone interested :)

Hey all!

It looks like we've got Star Trek Adventures game sessions that are going to run!

Thursday July 28, 5:30-8:30 PM SLT is going to happen. There's plenty of room if you'd like to come play: just reply here so I can send you some directions beforehand, but I can even work with last-minute folks if need be. Absolute newcomers are super welcome!

Also, if you'd like to play but can't make that time, just let me know when's good for you, and I'll do my best to get a group together.

Our first Star Trek Adventures demo session will run this Thursday evening (tomorrow night) at 5:30 PM SLT!

We've still got room for up to 3 more people, so if you'd like to play, just let me know here or on Discord before 3 PM SLT tomorrow (Thursday).

You don't need to buy or do anything, other than to set up a free Roll20 account, and I'll work you through all the steps. So if you'd like to try an online tabletop roleplaying game set in the Star Trek universe, come on down! :warbird:

Rich, Selina, and Franky are on a damaged Starfleet vessel inside the Neutral Zone, under the guns of a nervous Romulan Warbird commander! :warbird:

But don't worry, we'll bring them home -probably!



Our first demo Star Trek Adventures session went well, and we're going to pick up again next week to finish off the story.

We've got three people interested in a second session - which just needs final scheduling - but there's always room for more! I'm happy to run demos whenever we've got at least three players who can meet at a time that works. So if you'd like to give the system a try, just reply!
