Play • 1 hr
In our fifteenth episode we have on the show Wella Lasola & Bill Chinn, the developers behind the 1999 Star Trek game, Birth Of The Federation. This episode holds a special place for Jean, the Strategy Wargamer, as it is his all time favorite game. We spend the episode diving back to the development days of this legendary game that stood the test of time, and discovery some interesting design decisions. We also discuss the challenges the team faced developing a Star Trek 4X Strategy game with only The Next Generation license. We round up the interview discussing the possibility of a sequel and getting the old team back together again.

*We apologize for the poor audio quality, we had a corruption in one of our audio files.
