According to the news, Antonin Yelchin, the actor that played Pavel Chekov in the Trek reboot movies, died unexpectedly today.
He was perfect for that role, and will be missed. Godspeed.
Extra sad and strange because I’ve been working on a Star Trek fan supplement for the Stars Without Number OSR sci-fi RPG. Seeing what an awesome job White Star (affiliate link: http://goo.gl/xW80hJ) does as an OSR Star Wars make me really want some OSR Trek action. There have been some other, pretty cool OSR Trek games (like Starships and Spacement, affiliate link: http://goo.gl/On49kk) and this Black Hack version by the awesome Mike Evans (https://goo.gl/iybQrf), but I like something just a little crunchier. And since it looks like Traveller Prime Directive isn’t coming out until the 24th Century, you might give this a glance.
And you can see my Star Treks Without Number supplement in this Google Drive folder:

I’ve got complete character and ship creation rules, a variety of equipment, a bunch of bad guys, and several characters from Deep Space Nine statted out. If you like it, shoot me an email and let me know!
