**NOTE** Skybox no longer has any employees who worked on the CCG line on staff. They were sorry to mention that they have no samples. checklists or information to offer. If there are answers you need beyond the info in the below page, LMK and we will see what we can do to help you get the info you need!
This game features the original series and crew. There will be booster
packs(15 cards) and starter decks(65 cards). The starter deck will
be a game playable by themselves and will include Kirk, Spock, McCoy
and the Enterprise. The initial set will include 308 cards and will
have 4 levels of rarity, common, uncommon, rare and very rare. There
will be crew cards, challenge cards, effect cards and wild cards.
Two or more players can play. The goal is to complete missions which
are made up of elements found in episodes from the series. You can
use elements from several different episodes, but if an actual episode(and
it's unique elements) is recreated, a bonus is earned. The first player
to compile 25 mission points wins OR if the Enterprise is destroyed
in the course of the game, the person with the most points win.
ALIEN ENCOUNTERS WAS NEVER RELEASED
A sell sheet for Alien Encounters, the CCG that never was...;) (Thanks, William!)
Skybox has a sense of humor!!! See Inquest issue Jan 1996 with Kirk and Spock on the cover. Inside is an article in "Trek cards we will never see" Shortly after the announcement that F/S would hold the TOS license Inquest published a list of cards they thought should be produced. The article show fake CCG cards with these titles:
I find it terribly funny that not only did they USE some of these suggestions, but gave Inquest the exclusive Shirtless Kirk card. Congrats to Inquest for injecting some humor into the hobby and to Skybox for not taking itself so seriously!! (Thanks, K!!)
Immortalized in a card game!!!
Occasionally, in need of a crew card, they came across images of crewman who were never given names or identified in any way. Not ones to miss taking advantage of a situation, Steve Domzalski, lead game designer, Ron Perazza and Karen Greene, F/S employees became Lieutenant Steve Domzalski, Lieutenant Ron Perazza and Yeoman Karen Greene. Cheryl Thomas, Thom Parham and Chip Carter, Viacom/Paramount employees became Nurse Cheryl Thomas Lt Chip Carter and Lt Thom Parham
