So you want to crew a starship?

Never give up, never surrender! Yes, at the Festival this year, there not one but two opportunities for you and your brave crew to boldly go.

Combining two sets of the game, 20 crew will face off in the black; two starships and two fighters per side. Crew take on various roles/stations: engineer, weapons, shields, captain and frantically roll dice, readying torpedoes, powering scanners and shields and trying to out-manoeuvre the opposition. What could possibly go wrong? And while each game only lasts around 30-45 minutes, you’ll definitely need to sit down afterwards…

And if that isn’t enough for you, by Grabthar’s Hammer, we have more!

The UK Starship Bridge Simulator crew will be running a full starship bridge, with interactive bridge stations throughout the weekend. Master your stations, battle aliens and save the galaxy!
