Starcadians, report in!

<…> Our transmission… seems to be.. f..ailing! A derelict… cargo ship drifted towards… inside, they found… everywhere… I repeat: An invasion is headed your way! <…>

When a derelict cargo ship appeared on the radars, everyone thought that the day was saved - fresh new tacos were being delivered! But soon we all realized that the ship wasn’t responding to the hails, was careening towards Krier Station and wasn’t slowing down. It had to be hauled into a stop, and inside Starcadians found a surprising new threat: a race of swarming aliens quickly dubbed ‘Zeniths’ that moved efficiently and mercilessly. At least having an all-new threat should unify all Starcadians against it. Right? I mean the Crews would stop their quarreling over this, right? RIGHT?

For $25, the Kickstarter Exclusive Zenith Invasion Enemy Set Optional Buy brings a new group of hungry alien enemies that can be added to any Starcadia Quest Scenario, further increasing the range of available enemies for backers!

The Zenith Invasion Enemy Set comes with:

  • 4 Zenith Grubs
  • 4 Zenith Drones
  • 2 Zenith Guards
  • 1 Zenith Queen
  • 4 Monster cards

How about we study our new enemies a bit closer?

Grubs are the initial stage in the Zenith evolution process, and as such, they don't attack Heroes are much as follow them around, infesting the place. They do however deal Wounds to Heroes when they get too Close (they love hugging!) and well, when THAT happens, they tend to evolve to their next stage, and are replaced by Zenith Drones!

Being the quadruped evolution stage of the mighty Zenith race, Drones are viciously fast, moving 5 Spaces per activation, which combines nicely with a strong Melee attack. Worse yet, Drones are the first (but not last) stage of Zeniths where their blood is caustic to other races, making them deal damage to Close Characters when they die - ouch!

Zenith Guards may not be the most numerous of the Zeniths, but these Officers bring an amazing combination of a thick defensive carapace, deadly sharp claws and an irritating habit of surprising Heroes. They have the same caustic blood as Guards, but to make matter worse, when they deal Wounds to Heroes, they also Daze them!

The Zenith Queen is a creature feared everywhere. She does not hold back to simply control her minions - no - she enjoys entering the thick of the fight and wreak havoc among her enemies (and subjects!). She may be the slowest of all the Zeniths, but as a protective mother, she gets activated whenever her Troopers are. Add that to a whopping Melee attack and an extra caustic blood and you have a real Tyrant in your Space Station. Game over, man!

    2. Rand Chua TL on

      Since there are aliens look alike minis. Possible to create and give us something like the Movie Alien 1, 2, 3 series campaign for Zenith Invasion Enemy Set, please?

      Pro

      A lot fans of Aliens would love it.

      A lot of gamers would love it.

      A lot of nerds would love it.

      It would increase backers wanting it.

      It would up the sales.

      Now I want to play Chibi-Space Hulk! Zenith aliens instead of Genestealers (I would need 2 boxes) and the terminators replaced by bunch of SQ heroes...

    6. Akira on

      these are awesome, but how do they and the trooper/darth add-ons integrate into the game? is it a matter of subbing them in for other aliens? will there be a campaign or rules for how to add?

    7. Glenn Low on

      YES!!!! now a predator HERO and CMON you have my all-in pledge lol

    8. Two ball cane on

      so Cool....lots of bag guys now. Keep unifying different sci-fi universes, you could take this farther than infinity ! Bugs like these though take the cake, love it.

    12. Marko on

      I have a question regarding this add-on and monster add-on in general. You have your trooper, officer and villain.
      Is there a villain in every scenario? Is villain always Throne - since there is no campaign with monster pack add-ons, or can it be random?
      My main question is, how much will I be able to use these monsters in campaign?

      I'm hoping for a Predator type hero now.

      Also, I wonder if these KS Exclusive add-ons would have gone to retail 3 or 4 years ago. Earlier KS from CMON had a ton of add-ons you could get later, but it seems like most of them are KSE now.

    17. Daniel Legault on

      I keep jamming my wallet into my monitor and it isn't doing anything!

    18. Enrique Aguilar on

      @Nicholas E. Kelsch : yes, I would buy them too, but they look alike a famous IP that CMON makes them KSE only.

    19. Melina Webber on

      Incredible!!! Now we're talking. So excited for this; an insta-buy for me. Agreed that some scenarios would be good, but what I'd really like to see is some feedback from the Collaborators on whether or not playing with multiples of sets like this (and THORNETROOPERS) is possible if we want to amp up the chaos! XD

      My wallet blames every one of you asking for this over the campaign and we finally get it as an add on at the end. Take my money damnit!!!

    23. Josef Hanzl on

      It will cost lots of money, this SQ...at least they could add come heroes to this Villain boxes...Hudson and Vasquez here and some Leia and R2D2 to Startr...the other one...

      Daniel Dobson on

      Why no scenario to go with them? They sure look great though

    25. Nicholas E. Kelsch on

      Every single add-on is something which if asked: "If this was available at retail today, would I buy it?" I would answer 'YES' to.

    26. Joe Crane on

      Please give me Hicks!

      I'm throwing the credit card in the screen, but it doesn't working...

    30. Alex on

      The pop culture references in this campaign are knocking it out of the park for me! Best KS Exclusives out of all the CMON campaigns so far me. Would love the chance to play Johnny Jet as a hero against Zeniths!

      Holy crap, this is exactly what I would have wanted if I wanted an alien expansion. And I wanted one.

    34. Leberschnitzel on

      @theo c: Ripley is a stretch goal already.

    35. Alex on

      This is a dream come true! Too much to hope for a Predator stretch goal? Maybe as a hero and a baddie so you can get extra value out of the one mold? Would love some terminators too, and a cpl Hicks and Vasquez while I'm being greedy :)
