Star Trek: Attack Wing is a multiplayer game set within the Star Trek "universe". It is produced by WizKids and was first released to retail in August, 2013.

Players assume the roles of commanders who can customize, upgrade, and assign famous crew members to their fleets from the Dominion, Federation, Klingon, and Romulan factions. Fleets have their special statistics, abilities, and unique maneuvers displayed on separate "HeroClix Combat Dials". Alongside these modified dials, the game utilizes the "FlightPath maneuver system" for its gaming mechanics, under license from Fantasy Flight Games.[2]

Additional gaming scenarios from the Dominion Wars will be playable on space maps distributed through an Organized Play Program.[3]

The game's painted ship molds are identical to those utilized in the Star Trek: Tactics games, although the Federation faction ships in Attack Wing do not have names or registries painted onto their hulls. Unpainted versions of some of the ship molds were also previously released in the Star Trek: Fleet Captains game.

A unique promotional Khan Singh Captain card was released exclusively at the Gen Con gaming convention in August 2013.[4]
