  1. I gotta go with the Sovereign Class. They can take a licking and keep on ticking while pounding on the bad guys.
  2. Hannibal is a soldier to his core, so political office is not something he would seek. He feels he will have a greater effect out in the black than cooped up in some plush office....blech....
  3. That is hard to believe...but you can't beat Defiant Class nose art....where would you put it on a Nova Class?
  4. Mirandas are playable as far as I know....Defiant Class not sure....
  5. I've got a real love for the Miranda Class. Lots of guns, multi mission capable and capable of just about anything. I like them so much when I do make Captain, I'm picking a Miranda Class as my ship...an updated one...with armor, regenerative shields and a bigger hangar bay. According to STO, Miranda production was restarted in 2406, so you never know...heh..heh..heh...maybe it started a little early...
  6. Although I did not submit one this time, I look forward to reading them. Hopefully next time, I will have the time to write one.
  7. Interesting treatment of terrorism by Star Trek. The good part is the writers of ST tried to show enough of both sides ...but, as it has been said, one mans' freedom fighter is another mans' terrorist. At the end of the day, it's all about how survives to write the narrative. Neutrality is a nice thing, but it's hard to remain that way once you see the unbiased truth from both sides, especially in regards to the Bajoran/Cardassians and the Maqui. Very interesting program, and would love to see what Part Two has to say.
  8. Hannibal would listen to just about anything, depending on his mood. Plus as a piano player he has been exposed to many different styles of music.
  9. Use every tactical trick known to Starfleet to get rid of the Borg once and for all. They keep coming, we keep shooting....
  10. I'd have to go with "Bones." If you read my wiki page, you will know why...
  11. Every year, this community gets better and better. Congrats to all the winners!
  12. The test is really seeing if you can deal with the impossible and the allegedly inevitable. One day, I'll have to back sim how Hannibal did on his test...he managed a draw...
  13. Everyone has made some good points, but I have to say the Marines are fraught with the most risk. Here is why: 1. Marines are fewer in number, and not all are stationed on starships or embassies. As a percentage, they would suffer the greatest number of casualties. 2. Marines come when all else has failed, which mean they come into a combat situation instantly. That requires a different set of skills and tactics that would be found with Security. Marines are taught to advance towards an enemy, hold territory, and break ships and beings. 3. Marines are not always warriors. They can fulfill many roles, such as Engineering, construction, winning hearts and minds. These roles can also place them at great risk. 4. In war, you need a force who can take the fight to the enemy, deliver as much punishment as possible, and achieve the objectives set out by Starfleet and the Federation, and the Marines are best suited for such operations, both long and short term conflicts. When you need to hold a planet, an embassy, or a starship, it's the Marines who get the call.
  14. Hannibal joined the Starfleet Marines just before the outbreak of the Dominion War...he couldn't wait for getting into the Academy. His parents, both starship captains, understood his decision. Long before he joined, his father had been teaching him many things about combat, so he was more than ready to assist in defending the Federation against the J'em Haddar. It took him awhile after the war to get around to being an officer, first in Starfleet, then back in the Marines. He is driven to protect his crew, his embassy,, his friends from harm, and he's really good at it...
  15. Hannibal likes the tactical side of things, so a Defiant or an uprated Miranda Class would suit him just fine....
  16. Everyone always focuses of the "heavies" but DS9 used the smaller craft quite well, and introduced fighters. We use them quite often at the Embassy, as well as runabouts and other smaller craft.. They can be quite useful in storytelling.
  17. Quentin does have his own style, but it should be interesting as to what he is going to come up with. At the end of the day, if Star Trek had not been done for the first time in 1965 and was starting out for the first time, most likely it would be sexier, grittier, more gruesome. It's all about the eyes on the product, with Rodenberrys' vision second.
  18. It would be very interesting to go back and see how what's left of the Federation is dealing with the Dominion, since my character fought in it and his parents were killed in it...
  19. Every incarnation of the Star Trek story since DS9 has been an "reimaginging", not staying true to what has already been established. Klingons eating humans? Really? Ships seemingly more advanced than the not yet on screen but mentioned Constitution Class? The series is darker, which to me is not the problem. DS9 was darker, but it stayed true to what preceded it, and added to it. Discovery does not add, just as the new movies did not add to the existing established canon. They could have done so much better.
