Living Starship is the over-arching umbrella title for the science fiction side of our Living Saga setting. It includes: 

RANKaree - a casual card game of set collection featuring the rank isignia of the Living Starhsip Fleet
Starship Preludes -  a lightweight, resource management and dice game that trains cadets to become crew members for the Adventures board game 
Starship Adventures - a stand-alone board game of starship crew managment and missions. There will be an expansion pack that turns the game into an ongoing, campaign-style heritage game where the exploits of your crew will shape the face of the galaxy that will be unlike anyone else’s version.

And then... you can combine components from each of those three games into a FOURTH game - Rise to Command - which can be played with the crew that you trained in Preludes but BEFORE you assign them to your ship in Adventures. This game represents the the work experience each of your crew has in their Fleet careers and moves them up the ranks from Ensigns and Privates and determines who will be the captain.

Layman Kingsford and his team have labored to create a fictional universe full of compelling races of people, unique and engaging characters, frightening and indecipherable alien invaders and a plot line that will unfold in unforeseen ways to illuminate mysteries and answer questions that have been lurking for thousands of years in the Citadel galaxy.

Living Starship is an ongoing and evolving story, the details of which will be provided by the fans who contribute to the writing of the story.  Every time the game is played, new chapters will be undertaken.  The choices made by the players and the results of their games will determine the exact outcome of each episode.  Not even we, the creators, know exactly how things will transpire - that’s why we call this a Living Starship game.
