Space … The final frontier … Star Trek Catan combines the adventures of the legendary Starship Enterprise with those of the Settlers of Catan. The challenge is to settle a world that has never been settled before.
Star Trek Catan takes two well-known media properties and merges them into, well, into something that is 95% The Settlers of Catan glossed with Trek tropes and spiced with a Trek-themed version of a mini-expansion previously only available in German.
In Star Trek Catan, players start the game with two small Outposts at the intersection of three planets, with each planet supplying resources based on the result of a dice roll. Players collect and trade these resources in order to build Starships that connect regions in the galaxy, establish more Outposts and Starbases at new intersection points in order to increase resource acquisition, and acquire Development Cards that provide Victory Points or special abilities.
Star Trek Catan differs from the basic Settlers in one aspect: a set of Support Cards formerly available only in German as Catan Scenarios: Helpers of Catan. Each Support Card features a special ability and one of Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Sulu, Scott, Uhura, Chekov, Chapel, Rand, or Sarek. Some special abilities make basic actions better, while others break rules.
Star Trek Catan is recommended for 3-4 players, ages 8 and up, and takes approximately 75 minutes to play.
