The traditional game rules of Monopoly state that the object of the game is to become the wealthiest player through buying, renting and selling property. In this edition, the basic Monopoly rules still apply in the 24th century but the special rules included in this edition will help you understand how technology has changed over 400 years. Instead of collecting properties, you are creating alliances with other worlds for their technologies and knowledge of the Universe.

A real collector's edition. The starfield game board with wormhole was designed to allow players to connect to other future game boards. Each special edition game board was to represent a different galaxy quadrant. Captain's log and Starfleet orders cards reward penalise and direct players on their galaxy mission. Gold pressed latinum bar currency replaces original Monopoly money. Besides bartering, gold pressed latinum is the most common system of exchange in the 24th Century.
Every copy has a unique collector number. This was to be the first in a series of Monopoly Star Trek editions to be issued. Each new game was to represent a different quadrant of the galaxy: Alpha, Beta, Delta and Gamma. (This game represents the Alpha quadrant).
The only subsequent linking edition actually produced was the Star Trek Next Generation Limited Edition in the year 2000 which featured the beta quadrant. With the release of the Star Trek Limited Edition, players were able to play both Star Trek Monopoly games simultaneously. As crewmembers from Star Trek: The Next Generation or from the original Star Trek series, Monopoly game players were then able to travel between the Alpha and Beta quadrants of the Star Trek galaxy via a wormhole, located in both game board centres near ‘GO.’. Players then had the opportunity to double their alliances and travels to compete for the chance to ‘own everything’ in both quadrants.
