Prime Directive is a good game to play adventures based on the original Star Trek series. This is not based around The Next Gen or the series that followed. What you get is a interesting and effective system for running games in the Star Fleet Battles universe, which feels more like original Trek. The character gen is based on a points system. You pick your race and which of the six branches you want to be. This gives you your stats, as well as beginning skills. Points are then spent to buy more skills, and increase stats.
The actual game system is fairly unique. Each skill gives the player a number of D6s to roll. The target number is based on what they call a tricode. Made up of three numbers indicating a minimum, moderate or complete success. This system sounds complicated at first, but is actually very easy once you get used to it, and is very effective at building the right feel for the game.
It is a pity the designers did not continue with this version. As the system is good and effective and it helps give you the right feel for the universe. If you want a game that allows you to play in the same sort of universe as James T Kirk and co this is it.

I am really disappointed with this product it may be a really cool system and setting but I will never know because the scan is so illegible that i can't read it. this is a do not buy its not worth the 10 bucks for some thing that can't be used.

We sent Wesley the original scan of the book. It is readable on our computers; we don\'t know what happened on his end with the download, but we hope that this solved the problem. We\'re sorry that this problem happened for Wesley. We try to note when a book is scanned. Our company is old enough that our earlier products were typeset and those old files are lost. Our newer products are PDFed from the files we use to print on demand.

After an initial reading, I am really quite impressed by the mechanics and feel of this game. I am quite surprised that the publisher did not maintain this version of Prime Directive in addition to the d20, Gurps, and Traveller versions. There is much to be said for this unique RPG. Be warned though....and it bears repeating....this is NOT Trek as it currently stands. It is Trek as it might have evolved based on the original series. And frankly, I like the Starfleet universe better anyway as it seems more consistent.
