I really enjoy the Mission Briefs! “001 Growing Pains” was very cool (and made me want to play in the ENT era) and “002 Disasters” gave me a devilish grin thinking of all the evil obstacles I will throw at my players once I incorporate these into my games.
Yet one thing made me wonder: Mission 01.80 “The Void” involves some Nausicaans – but refers, for stats, to the Jem’Hadar. Are there no stats for Nausicaans in STA?
Spoiler: There are, but not in the Core Rulebook. It seems that Modiphius has a policy of “only refer to Core Rules” in the Mission Briefs, which is simply decent. Indeed, the Core Rules should be everything one needs to be able to use free material. Thanks, keep that up!
Yet, since one or the other owns additional material: Stats for Nausicaan NPCs (both Minor and Notable) can be found in the Alpha Quadrant supplement. And while I’m adamant that Modiphius should keep their policy of “only refer to Core Rules” in Mission Briefs, I think that some additional (advertising) information (“Use xyz NPC for this NPC or find stats in the abc supplement.”) wouldn’t hurt.
