Star Trek Theme.
Module for the Warp Empires system.
You must use the Warp Empires system to play this game.
Six-sided dice are needed in this scenario.
Over half the territories are empty space.
Revenue generating spaces are planetary systems.
Other territory types include:
Supernovas: No entry possible.
Nebulas: Ships must stop upon entering.
Worm Holes: Allow instant transport to other Worm Holes.
You win if you control over 60% of the systems on the map.
Each player picks a race:
United Federation of Planets
Romulan Star Empire
Each player starts with a Homesystem with 10 random units.
UNITS & ACTION DECK
Players share a common Action deck and unit chit pile.
Include an exploration phase after movement phase.
When entering an unexplored system for the first time roll three six sided
dice to determine The presence of Resources, Minor Races, and Enigmas.
1D6 Resources: Revenue:
1-2 Poor 1
3-4 Moderate 2
5-6 Rich 3
1D6 Minor Race: Revenue:
1-3 No Minor Race -
4 Primitive Race +1
5 Modern Race +2
6 Advanced Race +3
1-4 No Enigma
Include an Enigma phase after exploration phase.
If the planet has an Enigma roll 1D6.
Add +1 to the Enigma roll if the stack contains a Command ship or Science Vessel.
On a roll of 5 the Enigma is solved.
On a roll of 1-4 the Enigma causes unintended consequences. Roll 1D6 to see what they are:
1-3 The Exploring stack is destroyed.
4-5 The Exploring stack must retreat.
6 Roll again plus if there was a Minor Race Present, it is destroyed.
A system cannot be controlled by diplomacy or conquest if it has an unresolved Enigma.
If the stack is destroyed the Enigma remains and must be faced again.
If the Enigma is solved, it goes away forever.
Include a Diplomacy phase after Enigma phase.
If the newly explored planet has a Minor Race roll 1D6.
On a roll of 6 or better, the race willingly joins your empire.
If you roll a 1-2 the race will never join your empire through diplomacy.
The Federation and Ferengi players get +1 to the Diplomacy roll.
The Federation cannot conquer newly discovered Minor races, they can only use diplomacy.
If a diplomacy attempt fails, you can try again next turn.
Each system generates revenue equal to its:
Resource type + Minor Race Type.
If the system has no minor race, you must first build a colony.
Terraformed Systems generate +1 Income.
Homesystems generate 10 Revenue points per turn.
Cardassians generate an extra point of revenue from Minor Races due to their
oppressive rule of The subjugated race
Borg generate an extra point of revenue from Minor Races due to their
assimilation of manpower.
Ferengi generate one less point of revenue from Minor Races because their
control is based strictly on trade.
Units must start at your Homeworld, a Starbase, or a planet with a Shipyard.
You may build colonies and shipyards and Terraform on
systems other than your Homesystem at will.
A system can have a maximum of 1 colony and 1 shipyard and 1 Terraform.
A Minor Race Planet cannot be Terraformed.
A system must first have a colony to have a functioning shipyard or to Terraform.
A Starbase may be built in a non-system space adjacent to a system you control.
Opposing stacks in the same space do not have to attack each
other if they both declare that they are on Diplomatic missions.
If the Borg win a battle (engagement) they get to keep and control (assimilate) half
the enemy casualties.
Treat Leaders like other units with respect to casualties.
Players may attempt to conquer minor races.
The Minor Race will generate 1D6 x 1D6 Force in its defense.
When attacking a colony or Minor Race controlled by an enemy the defender will
get +10 Force. (Garrisons, Planetary Defenses)
When attacking a Homesystem controlled by an enemy the defender will get +20 Force.
Klingons get +5 Force when battling at a system.
Units in Battle adjacent to a friendly Starbase get +5 Force.

WARP EMPIRES RULESET
Generic ruleset for a series of empire building/conquest games.
The map depicts an irregular, interlocked set of territories.
Use chits to represent control markers.
Use chits to represent units.
Units include Leaders & non-leader units.
Players share an action deck.
In some games, each player will have their own action deck.
The action deck cards allow you to move your units.
Most Leader units will be in play.
Others will be mixed into the unit chit pile.
Each player will start with several non-leader units in play.
Starting points of units will be determined by the scenario.
Players take turns. Each turn has 7 phases:
First discard any cards you don't want.
Each player draws 5 action cards.
Max hand size = 7. Discard excess cards.
If the deck runs out, shuffle the discard and draw from it.
Use Action cards to move stacks or units in stacks.
A Fast unit can move 1-3 spaces.
A Medium speed unit can move 1-2 spaces.
A Slow unit can move 1 space.
Units can move into but not through opposing stacks.
Fortifications cannot move (Move = 0).
Your opponent can only look at the top unit of your stacks
When two opposing stacks occupy the same territory there will be a battle.
Each unit has a force value.
Add up the total Force values for each side.
Players may play action cards to increase their force value.
If one stack has a Leader and the other does not, the stack with the
leader gets an additional 5 Force.
The side with the highest force value wins.
The losing stack must retreat one space.
The losing stack loses half of its units. The winner picks the first
unit lost, the loser picks the remainder.
Fortification units in the losing stack are destroyed automatically.
The winning stack loses units with a force equal to at least half the force
total lost by the losing stack. The winner decides which units are lost.
Destroyed units are returned to their chit pile.
Captured leaders are set aside and not returned to the chit pile.
After a battle both sides replenish their hands to 7 cards.
Gain revenue points for every revenue generating territory you control.
Draw 5 random units from the unit chit pile.
Purchase units. A units cost is equal to its Force value.
If you purchased all the drawn units, draw another 1D6 random units.
Revenue may be saved from turn to turn.
Discard unpurchased units back to your unit chit pile.
Units start in any revenue generating territory you control.
Number of Units that automatically receive upkeep = 5 x total Revenue.
Discard excess units.
Example: You generate 10 revenue points per turn...
You may have up to 50 units.
Place a control marker on every revenue generating
territory occupied by one of your units.
Only one control marker per space.
