In middle school in the mid-eighties, I discovered Star Fleet Battles and FASA’s Star Trek: The Role Playing Game and got hooked on role-playing games. I loved the Starship Construction Manual and build several spaceframes. Since my love for Star Trek began when I only had seventy-nine episodes, and two movies I also grew to love the novels with the first one I bought being The Abode of Life. In my mind, the novels have always been canon and I love the Jim Johnson theory that canon is interpreted by the individual and not the collective. I’ve been influenced the most by A.C. Crispin, Peter David, David Mack, and Dayton Ward.
I was an early adaptor of Star Trek Adventures discovering it during play testing and then buying it when it was published. For me, I think Jim Johnson and his team have captured the true spirit of Star Trek just like FASA did. I also appreciate that Modiphius has faith in the game and continues to add modules based on the new properties that Paramount has been producing.
I was working on developing a campaign for a TOS-era adventure and wanted to have a Watchtower Class Starbase so upon asking and discovering one had not been developed I put this together this past weekend.
It’s great to be part of this Star Trek Adventures community and look forward to seeing how others develop this starbase into their adventures.
