About the adventure

The Kobayashi Maru is the most important test for those in Starfleet who seek to enter the command division and pursue a prized career as a Starfleet captain. This test introduces cadets to a no-win scenario, something that will often happen while in the field. Many a Starfleet captain will have to face difficult challenges, sometimes ones that have no correct solution. Come and try your hand at the famous test for Starfleet officers. How will you fare when put in an impossible situation? This games takes place during Star Trek: The Original Series era. It uses the Modiphius 2d20 system, that I will explain at the start of the adventure. There will be choice of five pregenerated characters - two humans, two Vulcans and a Tellarite.
