This is one deck that Capt. Picard hasn’t been on.
A new card game based on “Star Trek: The Next Generation” is beaming into stores this summer, CBS Consumer Products and toy company Bandai America told Hero Complex.
Among the 300 playing cards joining Jean-Luc in the deck are Locutus, a Borg cube and, of course, the U.S.S. Enterprise.
The deck-building game will allow players to construct their decks while they play. Each player starts off as a captain of a small starship with a crew and basic weaponry. Throughout the game, players can choose to promote diplomacy or conquer civilizations.
Hero Complex readers get a sneak peak at some of the cards (above), and they look pretty spiffy. Though competitive gamers might want to remember Picard’s advice in the third season of TNG: “Being first at any cost is not always the point.”
