(written from a Production point of view)
Son'a Ambush is a board game published by Last Unicorn Games in 1998. It was included as a free insert with issue #46 (February 1999) of InQuest Gamer Magazine. It could be played as a solitaire game, or with two players with the second player controlling the Son'a side of the fight.
The game is a re-enactment of the Ba'ku exodus from their village seen in Star Trek: Insurrection. The crew of the USS Enterprise-E must escort a group of Ba'ku from their village to the safety of a cave in the mountains. To succeed, they must get at least one of the Ba'ku to the cave space on the game map while avoiding attacks from the Son'a soldiers and their drones. Game combat is resolved using a simplified version of the "Icon System" used for LUG's Star Trek: The Next Generation Role Playing Game.
