This book sets up the basics of Star Trek: The Role Playing Game, including rules, character creation, and basic background information about the Star Trek universe.
This book includes three detailed game scenarios: "Ghosts of Conscience," "Again, Troublesome Tribbles," and "In the Presence of My Enemies."
Ghosts of Conscience
Stardate 7662.4 / Reference Stardate 2/1104:[Notes 1] The U.S.S. Enterprise is ordered to assist and recover vital data from the U.S.S. Hood NCC-1703, which has become trapped in a spatial interphase.
Again, Troublesome Tribbles
Stardate Unknown / Reference Stardate 2/1109:[Notes 1] The U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 is ordered to close Genetics Research Station 17 on the planet Aleph III, near the Klingon Neutral Zone, and to retrieve all personnel and data. Once there, the crew discovers Cyrano Jones, Tribbles, and a Klingon raiding force led by Captian Koloth.
In the Presence of My Enemies
Stardate Unknown / Reference Stardate 2/1202:[Notes 1] Federation Ambassador Carlos Luis Rivera, a senior diplomat, is called in to help persuade the Lorealyn system to join the Federation. Lying within the Klingon Neutral Zone, the system possesses important crystal deposits that could be valuable for experiments in transwarp propulsion. The Mission class courier U.S.S. Magnan NCC-13843 transports the ambassador, but is intercepted by a Klingon D-7 class cruiser. Ambassador Rivera and his party are taken aboard the cruiser, where they are temporarily imprisoned.
Ship Recognition Handbook
This edition included three new books that replaced the original Basic Rulebook: the "Cadet's Orientation Sourcebook," the "Star Fleet Officer's Manual," and the "Game Operations Manual." The Deluxe Game box set also included the "Adventure Book" and "Deck Plan Book" from the First Edition. A Basic Game box set featured only the three new books. See: Basic Game (FASA-2004)
- The Reference Stardate system was established in the second edition of Star Trek: The Role Playing Game, although the Adventure Book was not changed for that edition. The Reference Stardates for those adventures were given in the "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home Sourcebook Update," published in 1986.
