"Captain, these are Romulans. They are without honor."

The Continuing Committee is pleased to present Engage, our fifth full First Edition virtual expansion, and the second set in The Next Generation block. This fifty-three (53) card set will be released online at www.trekcc.org on Friday, November 2, 2012. Like The Next Generation before it, Engage focuses on affiliations from Star Trek: The Next Generation and continues with many of the themes previously introduced there.

The start of a new Romulan conquest begins with Always a Chess Game. This new play engine for the Romulans will help them go on a trilithium raid or hunt down the Romulan underground. They also gain new allies, not just your typical Romulan engineers, but Jean-Luc Picard acting as an undercover agent. Now if only he had someone to mindmeld with...

The Federation, the Klingons, and the Ferengi all get something as well. Joret Dal is one additon to the Federation. Just be sure to keep him away from Miles if you want to prevent military escalation!

There are also some new conversion cards that will look familiar to the Second Edition players. In addition to the Antedean Assassins, there are several new missions. These will help add some variety to the spaceline in block format, as the new Romulan starter deck will to sealed block format.

I would like to thank everyone involved for their hard work in making Engage. A big thank you to the design team, our art staff, the rules committee, and play testers. Without them, none of this would be possible. If you'd like to thank the many dedicated, please consider making a donation via The Promenade. If you do, you can earn our newest donation badge:

Donations of any amount ensure that we can continue to provide you a top-notch website and customer support for years to come. And don't forget to look at our limited availability release kits for Engage as well!

I am very proud of the newest First Edition expansion and hope you enjoy it! Engage will be available for free digital download on Friday, November 2, 2012, and will be legal in all of The Continuing Committee's sanctioned events one week later on Friday, November 9, 2012.
