Hang on–we’re getting a subspace transmission. It says that you’ve risen through the ranks of Starfleet and sworn to obey the Prime Directive. Hey, good for you! It says you’ve been assigned to a shiny new starship. Your mission? “To explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations.” Sweet! We’re skipping over a bunch of technical jargon, but it sounds like you’re in for a thrilling intergalactic cruise with some of the Federation’s best and brightest. There’s just one problem: it says here that not everyone on the final frontier shares your belief in science, equality, and not being killed by hostile lifeforms. Too bad! Well, with a heavy sense of duty (and only a hint of glee) we are going to recommend that you carry this officially-licensed phaser for protection as you boldly blaze a trail into darkness (and beyond). We hope you’ll be able to leave the setting on ‘stun,’ but you can rest assured that the sights and sounds of the particle beam will let you hold your own in a scrap.
