With Alacrity!!!

Started listening to Starship Tempest to get me back into the swing of running a STA game myself that was on hiatus. Well, let me tell you: this show has me so excited to be running it again.

The cast does a fantastic job of keeping me fully entertained and there is some hilarious banter in there. If you love Star Trek and TTRPGS, you should give Starship Tempest a shot.

Nerdtastic Fun

A fun group of people telling great stories, full of references every Trekkie will love. Also… frickin’ hilarious with great sound design.

Not Your Granddad’s Star Trek

This is an enjoyable podcast, but I will warn those diving in looking for a Star Trek Adventures actual play podcast of two things!

The first: Not to say they don’t take the story seriously, but this is a humorous take on Star Trek. Recurring characters are joked about, along with some of the ridiculous star trek plots. Certain important characters are given silly nicknames. And, one of the funniest running gags that also takes you out of the story sometimes: The supporting cast are implied to be feral animals (as opposed to anthropomorphic animals).

The second: If you’re a rules nerd, there’s some stuff they get wrong, some stuff they forget, and some stuff they just ignore. If you’re looking to listen to someone else to get a complete understanding of STA, you’re in the wrong place.

Despite all that, this is a lovely podcast, it’s fun as heck. The storyline, especially once they hit actual arcs and consequences, is riveting. If Apple had .5 stars I’d probably rate it 4.5!

It’s just sometimes a little hard to get invested when you realize the Bajoran resistance subplot would be important to the pregenerated stat block they used for a supporting cast engineer, except that Bajoran engineer is actually just a floating moray eel.

Brace yourself for absurdity, but watch with alacrity!
