Star Trek
Five-Year Mission
Mayfair Games
Newly released from Mayfair Games is Star Trek: Five-Year Mission, a cooperative game for 3 to 7 crew mates.

Red Alert! Red Alert! All Trekkie’s to your battle stations.  Our 5-year mission aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise is ready to begin.

This cooperative game features numerous obstacles to overcome for you and your crew mates.  One time play Spock, Bones, or Capt Kirk on board the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 from the original series.  Then in the next game flip over the character cards and play Worf, Counselor Troi, Data, or Giordi on board the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D from the Star Trek: The Next Generation series.

Make it so.
