Star Trek Adventure fans get ready for a little Lower Decks into your life.
Tabletop gaming is a growing market these days, and more and more board games designed for more advanced gamers are hitting the markets in bigger numbers. No longer reserved for your local game or hobby shop, huge tabletop games are making their way to places like Target and the like. Just about every media empire has a tabletop game these days.
Including but not limited to, Star Trek. Their game is called Star Trek Adventures, originally released in 2017, the game is a tabletop RPG and allows you to take command of various characters from across Trek, including Captains James Kirk, Jean-Luc Picard, Benjamin Sisko, Kathryne Janeway, and Jonathan Archer. As well as beloved second-in-command types like Spock, Will Riker, Kira Nerys, Chakotay, and T’Pol. Just about every major character from across the first five live-action shows can be used, including Nurse Chapel, Natasha Yar, Elim Garak, Seven of Nine, and Thy’lek Shran.
So it’s not surprising that the game is expanding once again to include the crew of Lower Decks. The game is including a digital-only expansion for Lower Decks fans that is available now.

You can order any of the Lower Decks items at Modiphius.net but be warned that if you purchase any of the figures you see, you’ll need a 3-D printer to print them out. They don’t sell stand-alone figures, so you’ll need to get a 3-D printer if you want to use actual miniatures or find them on a site like Miniaturemarket.com, where they’ll send you un-painted miniatures for a bit extra.
