This year, First Edition turned twenty-five (25). Unfortunately, due to a confluence of unfortunate events, we didn't put out a product in celebration of that milestone. (But don't worry, there are still plans afoot to celebrate.) But while all this has been going on, I've been deep into planning for the game's future, and that future has been foremost on my mind lately. So today's question is turning that question to all of you.
Where do you want the game to be in five years?
Much like last week's question, this is very broad in scope by design. I want you to think of any and all aspects of 1E and imagine how you'd like them to be as we prepare to ring in 2025. Do you want to see more affiliations? Great - which ones, and when in the next five years? What rules do you hope are cleaned up, or gone, by then?
Or maybe you'd rather look at the meta level. What decks do you want to see winning big tournaments? Which ones do you want to be historical memories only? How about cards - are there cycles of cards you want created? How happy will you be if we've cracked Yesterday's Enterprise by then (or how angry if we haven't?)
I want to know where you see First Edition after another half-decade of the CC's guidance. Cards, decks, rules, organized play, it's all on the table. It's your dream world, share it with us. However you define it, we want to know where you want the game to be in five years?
There are a lot of celebratory holidays over the next week. I believe Hanukkah starts on Sunday, and Christmas is next Wednesday. Whether you celebrate anything this time of year or not, I hope it's a good week. Find time to be kind to others, and find time to play some Trek if you can.
See you next week.
