Only the fourth Fighting Fantasy gamebook and already they're diversifying Not just into sci fi but a radically different approach all roundYou play as the starship captain but also have crew members from whom you have to select who accompanies you on away missions The ship itself also has stats There is provision for hand to hand combat phaser combat and ship to ship combat This makes it a very varied beastPleasingly there's less reliance on Luck rolls in this book instead focusing on dice rolls testing against the skill of your various specialists to determine success in endeavours This feels much appropriateIt's all very 'Star Trek' The transporter technology command structure and general feel of the alien planets and races all scream Kirk Co This of course is no bad thing at all The plot involves the ship plunging through a black hole into another universe then trying to find the co ordinates and interface details of another black hole so they can return home This involves visiting a lot of planets and interacting with a lot of alien races in an attempt to find the reuired data and there's a lot of false information and red herrings too This adds a lot of variety to the book but inevitably means that each encounter is relatively short before you need to rush off to the next It's almost like an entire season of 'Star Trek' condensed into a single episode It would have been nice if this wonderful introductory book could have spawned a few seuels with fewer but complex encountersAs these early gamebooks go this one is a toughie There's a lot of punishment to be taken most of it from decisions made rather than combat In fact there's less fighting in this than any other Fighting Fantasy title I've tried It's very difficult to find the reuired information and took me uite a number of attempts in fact I never got EITHER piece of reuired intel on the several occasions I first tried this book 25 years agoA uniue entry in the series and well worth a go especially the new App version from Tin Man Games with its beautiful presentation and lovely new artwork

Sucked through the nightmare of the Seltsian Void the starship Traveller emerges at the other side of. Four stars for concept but 1 for implementation There were a few times when the text was ambiguous Also i was actually able to remember some of the specific star trek episodes they were stealing from and the artwork isn't greatEdit Having now tried it a couple of times it is still pretty cool commanding your own starship crew and being able to beam down and fight space battles etc

Starship TravellerOu Will you be able to discover the way back to Earth from the alien peoples and planets you encounter. Brings something new to the table been the first Fighting Fantasy book to feature Sci Film with new stats looking after your crew and space shipbut the trouble is it is flawedthe true path to victory is boringwith no encounters whatsoeverin fact you don't even need to roll the dice once It is fun losing than winningworst book in the series so far
