Ferengi Alliance System Discs

Each Player Expansion for Star Trek: Ascendancy adds ten new System Discs for players to explore and exploit. One of those new worlds is Ferenginar, the Home World for the Ferengi civilization, but there also are nine other worlds and phenomena to explore. Of course, the Player Expansion also comes with everything else players need to add these new System Discs to the game, including more Space Lanes and Resource Nodes.

Cardassian Union Exploration Cards

One of the most exciting things a Player Expansion adds to Star Trek: Ascendancy is a new sense of adventure and discovery in the form of new Exploration Cards. The Cardassian Union Player Expansion adds ten new cards to the deck, introducing new challenges for civilizations as they explore the Galaxy. The Cardassians are an aggressive people; their hunger for vital resources puts them in conflict with species across the quadrant. That aggressiveness theme carries through to the new Exploration Cards in the form of "Confrontations".

If the Confrontation occurs in the early days of a civilization’s expansion, it could lead to a long and fruitful peace or decades of interstellar war. If a Confrontatio ...
