Star Trek: Tactics is a series of multi-player or multi-team games which are produced by WizKids.

Star Trek: TacticsEdit

Star Trek: Tactics premiered at retail in February 2012 and includes thirty-three ships from the Federation and Klingon factions.

The starter kit and booster pack ships utilize the "Clix" system of game play and are compatible with WizKids' long-running series of "HeroClix" games. In the starter game, two or more players command multi-generational fleets of starships while representing either the Federation Starfleet or the Klingon Defense Force. The duration of a single game is estimated at sixty minutes.

The booster pack ships are sold in sealed "blind boxes" without printed information about which ship is inside, similar to the marketing model used by "gashapon" toy manufacturers in Japan. Unpainted versions of all of the ship molds from the first Star Trek: Tactics game were previously released in the Star Trek: Fleet Captains base game.

The company also released the Star Trek: Attack Wing game in August 2013. Apart from being mounted on different stands, many of its painted ships are identical to those sold with Tactics. However, Attack Wing's Federation ships do not have names or registry numbers painted onto their hulls and different molds were used for some Klingon ships.[1].

Star Trek: Tactics Organized Play KitEdit

The promotional Star Trek: Tactics Organized Play Kit was made available to retailers for tournament play in early 2012. Three copies of the Warship Voyager model and five copies of an additional double-sided map were included.

Notes: the D7-class and K't'inga-class Klingon ships share the same mold.
Wizkids originally slated the USS Montgolfier to be the non-canon Saber-class USS da Vinci from the "Starfleet Corps of Engineers" novels but licensing limitations prevented this. This is the first appearance of this name and registry, which was created in conjunction with CBS and is a reference to the Montgolfier brothers. [2] Its card lists the registry as NCC-40109 but NCC-94943 is printed on the ship's hull.

Star Trek: Tactics IIEdit

In January 2013, WizKids released a new game with thirty-six ships including vessels from the Vulcan, Ferengi, Cardassian, Dominion, Romulan, Breen, Klingon, and Federation factions.

Unpainted versions of the Romulan ship molds from the Star Trek: Tactics II game were previously released in the Star Trek: Fleet Captains expansion, and several of the other factions' ship molds were repeated from the earlier Star Trek: Tactics game.

For Tactics II and its subsequent iterations, many ship names were introduced specifically for the game or were appropriated from non-canonical Star Trek works, in consultation with CBS.

Star Trek: Tactics II Organized Play KitEdit

The promotional Star Trek: Tactics II Organized Play Kit was made available to retailers for tournament play in early 2013. Three copies of the Battleship Enterprise model and five copies of an additional double-sided map were included.

Notes: The IKS B'Moth uses a different mold than the D7-class/K't'inga-class ships from the first set. The bridge structure is improperly twisted by 90° so that the bridge dome is on the left side. The ship has less molded detail on the rear superstructure and warp nacelles.
On their cards, the IRW N'Ventnar is identified as Sela's Warbird and the Robinson is described as Sisko's attack ship. The Battleship Enterprise takes its name from a description of the ship in TNG's "Yesterday's Enterprise".

A number of ship molds have been repeated from earlier Star Trek: Tactics games.
