Life From Lifelessness Arrives June 11th

by Charlie Plaine, Chairman

14th May 2010

"Let me show you something... that'll make you feel young as when the world was new." - Carol Marcus

We are proud and thrilled to announce that the first, full virtual expansion for First Edition will be released on Friday, June 11th. Life From Lifelessness will be a full, fifty-four (54) card virtual expansion, and will be available for free download from The Continuing Committee's website on the date of its release!

As would be expected, the bulk of the cards in each of The Continuing Committee's First Edition virtual expansions will be new and will bring new characters, ships and moments from the Star Trek universe into the game. However, each of our First Edition virtual expansions will also contain conversion cards, new versions of backwards-compatible cards, adjusted for First Edition game play and on First Edition templates!

Life From Lifelessness is designed to refresh First Edition and bring new opportunities to the game, no matter what you like to play. It provides players with new weapons to use against some of the most powerful decks in today's game, and new tools for those decks that people love, but that need a little bit of help.

Most importantly, Life From Lifelessness is meant to inspire your creativity and give all of the First Edition players something exciting and new to use in their decks and their games. The entire world of First Edition cannot and should not be reinvented with just one expansion, but this is an important step on the quest to restore First Edition to where it should be: fun, balanced, and full of Star Trek flavor.

Over the next few weeks, we'll not only roll out spoilers, strategy articles and discussions about Life From Lifelessness, but we'll be sharing some of our plans for updating the game's framework, and our goals and strategies for bringing First Edition back to a healthy, stable, and extremely fun game!

On Monday, we'll launch our brand new First Edition Card List, featuring the first visual spoilers from Life From Lifelessness, a new interface, and tons of improved features! Every weekday from then until release day on Friday, June 11th, you'll see a new spoiler on the website!

Every Friday will feature a new article or strategy discussion on the main site, giving you detailed information about some of the cards in this landmark virtual expansion, or a behind-the-scenes look at how the expansion was developed.

In the meantime, you can participate in our Designer Q&A on the Boldly Going forum, talk about the cards and your ideas on our Gameplay (1E) forum, or stop by The Promenade and request a Life From Lifelessness release kit or tournament prize kit, so you can plan a pre-release or release event and get some Alternate-Image Porthos cards for your event!

But what would an expansion announcement be without a spoiler? We'll have our graphical spoilers ready for you on Monday, but here's a little taste of something that Life From Lifelessness has to offer all of the First Edition players:

Life From Lifelessness ushers in a new era of fun, excitement, and community for First Edition. You'll be able to download your copy, completely free, from this website on Friday, June 11th, 2010. In the meantime, stay tuned, sound off, and enjoy the glorious return of the edition that started it all, First Edition!
