Star Trek Adventures: Ends and Means


 Action, diplomacy and adventure on a world riven by factional strife

"STARDATE 48326.3,  our mission is to proceed to the Federation protectorate world of Tolen IV to help mediate a disagreement between two rival factions. 

"The government of Tolen IV wishes to remain under the Federation’s protection, with the hopes of joining as a member world later. Their opposition wishes for Tolen IV to withdraw itself from Federation protection to take its place in the galactic community on its own terms. Tolen IV is located near the Romulan Neutral Zone and, thus, is in a strategic location for Starfleet to monitor Romulan activity and is also rich in dilithium, tritanium, and trillium-D, so the mining rights of the planet’s surface are of great interest to the Tolen people and to their more powerful neighbours. 

"This will require all my crew's skills of tact, diplomacy and negotiation, if we're to come to a peaceful resolution which satisfies both factions, as well as the interests of Starfleet." 

This standalone 24 page PDF adventure by Troy Mepyans for the Star Trek Adventures RPG,  pitches your Starfleet crew into the middle of a tense negotiation between the rival factions of Tolen IV. 

Can you bring an end to the dispute before it spills over into civil war and how will you react when events take a turn for the worse, sending your crew tumbling into a world of intrigue, action and adventure?

Is it more suited for a one-shot/introductory adventure compared to the adventure included in the core book ? My game is tomorrow.

It's a one-shot adventure that can easily be included anywhere in an existing campaign.

I don't have my Stardate chart handy. What era is this set in, please?

The Next Generation, but it can be adapted to suit any era.

5 digit is TNG. 4 digit is TOS.

The game, however, doesn't make any serious changes between them, tho'.

The insignia on the cover should help too--the TOS and TNG arrowheads are a bit different. That being said, I'll make sure to include a note in the description which era the adventure is intended for. Like Samuel said, though, all the adventures we publish will include guidance on how to run the adventure for other eras of play.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
