Okay, this is awesome, because during a summer session in college, I played a lot of the Star Trek: Starship Tactical Combat Simulator boardgame. My friend Bryce owned it and introduced it to us. After awhile, he enhanced the game with Hot Wheels Starship miniatures. He kept logs of our battles, and ships actually leveled up as we played.
Now, Wizkids is making a miniature game where you pit Starfleet against Klingons. Just like the game I played in college. Except now we can have all the proper miniatures to run battles.
I look forward to it. As Bryce reminded me, we had an awesome time whittling away the hot summer nights running combat simulations with starships.
