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.
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.

including both Original Series and TNG-era versions.
