FIRST LOOK: WizKids' Star Trek: Attack Wing
Do you want to play a game? A war game, perhaps? Come September, WizKids/NECA will launch the six-month-long Dominion War Storyline Organized Play Event for its upcoming Star Trek HeroClix miniatures game, Star Trek: Attack Wing. WizKids has been sprinkling details about the game since the spring and just last week revealed the Grand Prize: Deep Space 9, a miniature that will measure approximately 12” in diameter by 10” in height and will include its own unique crew, tech and weapons upgrade cards and game tokens
Here’s a synopsis of the game and details about how fans can participate, direct from WizKids:
In The Dominion War, the Alpha Quadrant is in a time of struggle and chaos. The Jem’Hadar and the Breen Confederacy have established a presence for themselves in the Alpha Quadrant, and with the help of their recent allies, the Cardassian Union, they plan to conquer everything in their path. This engagement proves to be the most devastating ever fought in the Alpha Quadrant.
In the Storyline Organized Play program, stores carrying Star Trek: Attack Wing will host tournaments for players to challenge each other for dominance of the Alpha Quadrant. Players will collect a participation prize each month as well as compete for a new playable ship that will only be offered via the Organized Play events. The player with the best record over the six-month event will be bestowed the title of Fleet Admiral and awarded a special grand prize at the end of the program.
