The Star Trek Roleplaying Game is a role-playing game (RPG) set in the Star Trek universe using the CODA System rules[1][2][3] and first published by Decipher, Inc. in 2002. When Decipher acquired the rights to create the RPG, they also acquired most of the gaming studio from Last Unicorn Games. However, the Decipher game system is dissimilar to the one that Last Unicorn published. Instead, the system is similar to Wizards of the Coast's d20 System but uses 2D6 to resolve actions.[1][3]

Materials[edit]

Books released for the game include:

  • Book 1: Star Trek Roleplaying Game Player's Guide (2002) - The bookcover, illustrated by Kieran Yanner, shows the various notable starship captains (see image at right).
  • Book 2: Star Trek Roleplaying Game Narrator's Guide (2002)
  • Book 3: Starfleet Operations Manual (2003)
  • Book 4: Starships (2003)
  • Book 5: Aliens (2003)
  • Book 6: Creatures (2003)
  • Supplement: Star Trek Narrator's Screen (2003)
  • Worlds (PDF only, 2005)
  • Mirror Universe: Through a Glass Darkly (PDF only, 2005)

Several more books were planned, including books based on Klingons, diplomats, and traders. Decipher was forced to close down their RPG studio before those books were published, so although they were written a couple years ago those books haven't been released. On November 12, 2007, Decipher CEO Warren Holland confirmed that the company would no longer be releasing any material concerning the Star Trek RPG.
