|Star Trek CCG 2nd Edition|
|Game/Set:||Star Trek CCG 2nd Edition|
2002 - present
Star Trek CCG 2nd Edition is a Collectible Card Game based on the TV series Star Trek. It is published by Decipher from 2002 - 2007 and The Continuing Committee since 2008. It is designed by Brad Defruiter and Evan Lorentz.
This game is a reinvention of the original Star Trek CCG. One major difference is the addition of a cost system to equipment, events, personnel, and ships. A card's cost is listed in the top left-hand corner of a card, directly preceding the card's title as a single digit number (currently anywhere from 0 to 9). A player receives seven 'counters' at the beginning of each turn; to play a card, the player must spend a number of counters equal to the cost of the card. Only interrupts (of the card types in a player's deck) do not have a cost and are treated as 0-cost.
Another major change in the gameplay of Second Edition is the new method of handling dilemmas. Instead of using First Edition's lengthy procedure of a 'seed phase', which could last upwards of 15 minutes, Second Edition employs an 'on-the-fly' method for constructing dilemma combinations. While First Edition attempts to sometimes literally represent instances from the Star Trek universe in the game, Second Edition focuses more on a consistency of gameplay as a priority over design consideration with regard to remaining faithful to the source material. Effects on cards sometimes lack the "Trek sense" that First Edition cards contain and can be purely conceptual, but are generally much more equitable when compared with other similarly costed effects.

The Continuing Committee era Virtual ExpansionsEdit
On 5 December 2007, Decipher announced that it would no longer be releasing new sets or officially supporting the game. A group of players came together and began work on The Continuing Committee (TCC). The name itself comes from the Romulan Continuing Committee, introduced in Deep Space 9, as the name was appropriate for the non-profit work being proposed. Since then, most of the game's faithful community has moved its activities to the new site and work has gone into producing "virtual sets" of cards to provide continuous new blood to the game.
The Continuing Committee continues the numbering sequence for its virtual expansion sets.

Although included in the total card count, the two cards from Living Witness are not playable as they were released as an April Fool's joke.
The Inheritance expansion set is an unnumbered set issued with the numbering sequence as part of the Virtual Promos set, thus it has no set number assigned. The card total for Virtual Promos does not include the card total for Inheritance.
