(written from a Production point of view)
Star Trek Catan is a three- or four-player board game set during Star Trek's Original Series era. An adaptation of the publisher's renowned The Settlers of Catan, the game was created by designer Klaus Teuber, produced by Catan GmbH for Kosmos (Franckh-Kosmos Verlags-GmbH & Co.), and premiered at retail in February 2012.
The game's English translation was released in August 2012 by Mayfair Games, the US licensee for all of the Catan games, and was distributed principally through Target stores in North America. An expansion map set was also released a year later.
Star Trek Catan base gameEdit
- From the publisher's website
- On behalf of the Federation, you explore space with your starships and build outposts and starbases near valuable planets. There you extract important resources such as the coveted dilithium. But the Federation has also sent out other expeditions.
- Therefore, you have to be wary of competitors - and of the Klingons, who want to give the players a hard time. With the aid of Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock, however, keeping the opponents in check and outperforming competitors should be an easy task.
