Star Trek III Starship Combat Game

The FASA Star Trek Roleplaying game established some really cool Trek mythology that was basically destroyed by TNG. While I enjoyed TNG, I was one of the people annoyed since I had been reading and playing with the FASA games for a few years by that point.

You could find these ads in comics in the 1980s. I would try and get my fellow comic book readers interested in a little Trek RPG by pointing these out, but they would never bite. Lots of dice were rolled alone.

    Lots of us were annoyed at TNG for ruining the FASA Trek continuity built up at that point.
    And lots of people still blame Roddenberry for having Paramount cancel FASA’s Trek license in 1988 as well.

    GMing FASA Trek from 1984 to about 88 were some of the happiest years I’ve ever had. Long Live FASA Trek!
