Are you a Trekkie? Do you love the board game Settlers of Catan? Kosmos has announced the German release of Star Trek Catan for March of 2012. It will retail for about 37 euros or about $48. Kosmos hasn’t announced when Star Trek Catan will be released in the U.S. Star Trek Catan is based on the popular board game Settlers of Catan.
Star Trek Catan replaces the resource cards of sheep, wheat ore brick and wood with dilithium, titanium, food, oxygen and water. Cities and villages are replaced with large and small space stations, the robber with a Klingon Bird of Prey and roads with Constitution class star ships.
The one new element in Star Trek Catan is a set of character cards featuring Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Sulu, Scott, Uhura, Checkov, Chapel, Rand and Sarek. Each card has two special powers that the holder can use on his turn, such as a forced trade.
The board itself has been altered slightly. The hexagonal biomes are replaced with entire planets giving the board a crowded look.
This will be the first time Kosmos has produced a franchised Catan game and it looks like it will be a great success.
We will post a link when the Star Trek Catan becomes available. If you are interested in space based Catan games then check out Starfarers of Catan.
