Decipher Star Trek – Character Creation Challenge

Inspired by the recent Star Trek movie and a renewed interest in the franchise, I became interested in finding a system to run a Star Trek game. Unfortunately, just like the series, there is no current RPG. On the upside, you can pick up the defunct Decipher version very cheap at WholeSaleGaming, $35 for the full lot, a great deal, which is what I’ll be using today.

The original books character creation is a bit… undeveloped, so I’ll be using the steps I found on a great fansite.
