Strange new worlds
Exploration is Starfleet's primary mission. Starships venture into uncharted regions of space, searching for new lifeforms and new civilizations, in the bold hope of establishing friendly relations. One week, you may be orbiting Ligon II, for delicate negotiations. The next, you might find yourself making first contact with a sentient star. Who knows what tomorrow will bring? One thing is constant no matter where your duty takes you – you're always in for an adventure.
Planetary Adventures provides Narrators with five ready-to-run adventures for their Star Trek: The Next Generation series. Return to the weapon world of Minos to delve further into its mysteries.
