A recent Beta Test group snippet:
[Dec 29, 2016] The Starship Simulator has made good progress in the previous months… We’re ready for a few groups of 6-8 to go through some beta-testing. If you have a group of this size, send a request email to firstname.lastname@example.org for further information. Some pictures will be posted shortly…
Your crew of 4-10 must command a Starship along part of its epic journey through the cosmos… Just like watching the crew of the Enterprise on Star Trek. Your group will be saying things like “MORE POWER TO SHIELDS!” , “FULL SPEED AHEAD!” , “Science, scan that object” and “Communications, request departure from space dock”.
This is a team-based, entertainment activity that can work with as few as 4 players, works best with 6 to 8 players, but can actually seat 10 people (no more).
