I loved "Oasis", haven't received "At Empires End" yet (still stuck at the shipping Post Office), but I had to use the "SPRING" Promo. Just ordered "Void Station 57", "The Dark Star Incident", "Into Chaos" & "Deceit & Betrayal".
Cool. I wrote Deceit and Betrayal. Let me know how you like it!
I like the Star Trek style of the game, including using actor's names as crew members. But I do have a few questions that hopefully you can answer. (1) The UPF Frigate is a 64 point build? (2) Since it is UPF/Star Trek, why no shields, transporters or photon torpedoes? (3) How many loads of plattnerite does a standard UPF Frigate carry? Is it part of/stored in engineering or in the cargo section? (4) Is plattnerite the required fuel for Jump Travel by all ships?

It's been a while since I wrote it, but I'll try to answer your questions. Plattnerite is needed for Jumps. I don't recall how many jumps' worth a given ship may carry. As for the ship builds, like the 64 point UPF Frigate, I had written my own spaceship build and combat rules, but Bret and George went with their preexisting ship rules, and I haven't had a chance to read over what they did.
