Modiphius unveils Borg Cube pre-order set for Star Trek Adventures
If you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, it’s probably an even worse idea to judge it by the box it came in. In the case of Modiphius’ spectacular Borg Cube Box Set for the upcoming Star Trek Adventures RPG, however, it does seem rather tempting.
The enormous set features a limited edition version of the core rulebook, all four sets of miniatures being produced for the game, three dice sets, a vast gamesmaster screen, a poster map of the Alpha and Beta Quadrants, game tokens, a pad of character sheets and – if that sounds like a lot of gear to fit on your shelves – a foam tray for storing the miniatures.
All those limited edition materials don’t come in cheap, however. The list price for the Borg Cube Box Set is a jaw-dropping £395, with US-based captains-in-waiting having to pay around US$550 once the cost of shipping is factored in.
Still, the bundle will virtually guarantee you get everything the system has to throw at you, as it will also include PDF versions of each of the upcoming game supplements Modiphius has also announced for the system. These include a guide to adventuring in the Beta Quadrant and three guides designed to expand character options.
Star Trek Adventures is slated for an August 2017 release.
