Game board and pieces

The Star Trek: The Next Generation Commemorative Chess Set was a standard chess game set produced by The Franklin Mint in 1995, shortly after the last episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation aired and before Star Trek Generations hit theaters.

Additionally, the pieces for this set were painted, fitted onto gold- or silver-plated discs, and set on large round crystal bases.


The pieces were as follows:
