Yes, once again I have been yammering into a microphone while someone records it so that other people can listen to it.
I don’t get it, either.
This time, I was invited to sit down with hosts Elijah and Kenna from the Priority One Podcast to talk about Star Trek Adventures, the new tabletop role playing game coming soon from Modiphius Entertainment. While I was asked to talk about the storyline I helped develop with the able assistance of friend and fellow Trek nerd Scott Pearson, and how such writing differs from what I might do for other projects like–for example–a novel, a good bit of the discussion focused on the game itself, including its mechanics, rules, and so on.
Fortunately for everyone involved, game designer Nathan Dowdell was with me, fielding with ease every question the hosts threw at him. Nathan is heading up the game’s development team and it’s obvious that a lot of thought and effort has gone into creating the rules that will drive the game while at the same time appealing to hard core fans as well as gamers who might only have a casual interest in Star Trek. From what I’ve read and observed so far, he definitely knows Trek as well as game design, and I’m confident Star Trek Adventures is in good hands.
Our interview with Elijah and Kenna is but one portion of this latest episode of Priority One, which also includes a look back at Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country on the occasion of the film’s 25th anniversary, and the latest news and rumors from the development of the next Star Trek movie as well as next year’s new TV series, Star Trek: Discovery, and updates for the Star Trek Online game. The result?
Many thanks to Elijah, Kenna, and the Priority One team for having us on their show, and to Nathan for joining me to provide all sorts of juicy details about the game.
