Star Trek Role-Playing Links

     For my own personal reference, I am keeping track of other attempts at Star Trek roleplaying which I should probably pay attention to in making my own game.


Tabletop Roleplaying

Decipher's Star Trek RPG
The current official licensed Star Trek RPG, released in 2002. It is very similar to the prior game released by Last Unicorn Games, having many of the same authors.
 
Last Unicorn Games' Star Trek RPG
The previous licensed Star Trek RPG, relased in 1999. It used the ICON system -- a "best roll" dice pool system where you roll a number of d6's equal to attribute (1-6), keeping the best and adding skill (1-6) vs difficulty.
S. John Ross' Untaken Treks
Steve Kenson's Lost Episodes
William Hostman's LUG-Trek Fan Page
 
Steve Jackson Games' GURPS
There is an official GURPS Prime Directive book (released in 2002), along with many unofficial adaptations:
GURPS Star Trek (by Collin Condray)
GURPS Star Trek (by m0riarty)
GURPS Star Trek (by Jonathan Willis)
GURPS Star Trek (by "Mr. B")
GURPS Star Trek (by Captain Nemo)
 
Rob Bruce has put together a Trek Hero document, but I am not considering his take canonical.
Trek HERO (by Rob Bruce)
An adaptation of Star Trek for the HERO System, 5th edition, including both Original Series and TNG-era versions.
