What happens when someone who has never seen an episode of Star Trek sits down to play a Star Trek role-playing game?

The Plot Points gang sets out to discover the answer, joined by friend of show Ryan Smith and celebrity gamer Elyse Hobson. While a bone-deep geek, and award-winning Pathfinder player, Elyse has managed to live her entire life never having seen an episode of Star Trek! But that doesn't stop her from taking on the role of Commander Riker in "Border Dispute", an adventure for Modiphius Entertainment's Star Trek Adventures role-playing game.
