You and your crewmates man the battlestations of a working starship, moving around on the module layout to maneuver your ship on the hex map. You turn the ship in the Helm, you pump for power back in the Engines. Experience simultaneous ship-to-ship combat and boarding action!
Amazing adventures await you...
Assault a starbase or have a showdown with an enemy ship or solve problems like unraveling the mystery of the ghost ship or escaping a nest of wormholes. Missions are designed to play in a single evening with no preparation, but your heroic adventures will last for lifetimes as continuing characters (and their clones) brave the dangers of darkest space!
Battlestations is a character-based adventure game of simultaneous ship-to-ship and boarding combat in space. Players work together against the forces controlled by the referee. Battlestations can be played as one-off missions or as part of an ongoing campaign. Youll track characters positions on the spaceship layouts and the ships positions on the hex map. The action in Battlestations is literally character driven. If you want the ship to turn or speed up, a character has to take an action to make is so. If you want the ships guns to fire at an enemy ship, a character has to take an action to fire the guns.
