This product is 26 pages covering the events from the year 5 comic series produced by IDW. The time frame is classic trek in the main timeline.
included is a new faction for the federation -the originalists. the product gives some details on the political views and movements in the federation at this time. The second faction is Aegis-a overmind being tied in to the charcter Gary 7 from a classic trek episode. To help understand and use Aegis I would recommend watching the episode with Gary 7.
Several new lifepaths are availaible:
Iotians-from classic trek episode where everything was based on the gnags of 20th century Chicago and what happened after that episode.
Tholians-also from a classic trek episode.
Gary 7 and Isis
Henry Mudd and celia
Starfleet admiral Konaxi
Surak of Vulcan
Several different Tholians
USS Thessus-not sure what class
couple of Tholian ships.
Overall I liked this supplement. I liked the updates on the Iotians and Tholians. I disliked Aegis. The idea of galactic overmind seems overused with star trek discovery. The Tholian info and ships are an excellent addition to the game. For these reasons I think this is worth five bucks for the Tholian, and Iotian information.
[4 of 5 Stars!]
