  1. I'd love a Starfleet Core of Engineer's ship/series. I loved the books/stories and would love to see that stuff on screen. I'd also love to see something spin off from the future setting of Discovery. I love the fun new tech stuff I'd love to see a show about the 15th generation of the Enterprise or something.
  2. The crew of the Juneau find themselves in New York, 1969, living normal lives unaware that anything is wrong, until the world starts shaking. It's been fun watching people flesh out their alter egos. This post from @Elijah Deckett is a good example of every reacting the confusing situation presented to us, without the normal structures of a Starfleet crew. ((Train, En Route to New York, July 11th, 1969)) Deckett was taking a few days off work and decided to head into the 'Big City' for some R&R, hoping that maybe a day walking around, shopping and people watching would
  3. Thank you both for putting in the work on this. You two did great. ~Patrick
  4. Is there any coordination of the world building to provide a common direction and to prevent contradictions? Does the Wiki team handle this or do they just handle the technical aspects of the wiki? ~Patrick
  5. Yeah, this is one of those things that always bugged me a bit, or at least it did once I was old enough to view these kinds of thing with a bit more of an analytical eye. It makes sense from a production and writing standpoint, but it results in what feels like a lack of depth to the world. Think of your friends and family. How many are fans of 17th and 18th century culture? Sure, we have more disposable income with leads to more popular culture items to consume than they did 300-400 years ago, but as we move towards a post scarcity culture, and then add in countless other cultures pro
  6. Yeah, I'd have to go with either Cardassian or Romulan. Mostly because they are fairly close to a Federation standard already. They'd need to weed out the blatant corruption and or dictatorial trends, but I think they already feel comfortable with the basic concepts. ~Patrick
  7. We play by e-mail. Each ship/station has a google groups list (two actually, one for IC posts and one for OOC chats) that we use to play. ~Patrick
  8. As with Jalana, it depends on the character with me. My Trill doesn't follow any religions (I swear I'm not copying you @Jalana). My Secondary follows the Kerelian faith. Of my PNPCs my Marine at the Embassy is Catholic, and my Betazed follows the Betazed faiths. So far it's a back ground thing for my Kerelian and my Betazoid, I haven't found a good method for bringing it to the fore yet, I really don't want to force it. ~Patrick
  9. This is a hard question and I'm not sure I have a good answer to this. All of those options are designed as antagonists for the Protagonist, The Federation. Each of those species, ideally, occupy a specific kid of role. The Ferengi sit as an opposite on the economic scale of the Federation. The Klingons serve as a violent mirror to the Federations, supposed, pacifism. Romulans are the Machiavellian mirror to the Federation's White Knight, while the Cardassians are the mirror for Starfleet specifically. The Breen are a mysterious enemy, and the Tholians are the personification of Alien.
  10. @Sal Taybrim It's Risa, so yeah, probably. ~Patrick
  11. Well you should have gone to your 5 year last year. Now you just have to take a plain old vacation. ~Patrick
  12. @Brayden Jorey What year did Brayden graduate, he can always make the excuse to go back for the reunion. ~Patrick
  13. Yep, back home to visit family on Trill. Some time with family in the country is always welcome. Most of my PNPCs would probably take the resort. ~Patrick
  14. For a Mobile Station kind of ship I would want a good 50 to 100 decks. The Chariot class only has 19. I'd want the ship to just feel massive. Maybe some of the lower decks could be a kind of docking extension allowing other ships to dock directly with the Mobile Station. I'm not sure. For game purposes there would need to be some definite trade offs so it was just able to do everything. ~Patrick
  15. Oh yeah, if it was a full time ship you'd need everyone. I would feel obligated to let prospective crew know that mission types will be skewed in a specific direction so no one felt stuck. For the Science and Engineer only, I more meant if say My posting at the Embassy wanted to do something out of the box we could run a mission where everyone draws up a new SNPC, as we have a standalone mission on a different ship to better run a mission type that we wouldn't normally really run. In that case, for a single mission I could see encouraging most people to draw up a specific type of charac
  16. That would also be an interesting ship type to have. Some kind of cut down Olympic class ship to get things started while the regular hospital ship are still in transit. Game wise I wonder what a specialize ship would be like. Limiting mission type would lead to some sense of repetition, and would limit your crew choices. I wonder if a crew could do a "Everyone make an SCE or Science SNPC, we're doing a spin off mission this go round" kind of thing from time to time.
  17. For the game, I've been ruminating on the idea of designing something that would fit in as both Base and Ship. A Large ship that can serve as a mobile outpost of sorts. It could go into a sector that doesn't have much Starfleet presence and set up shop. It could serve as a diplomatic and exploration hub, but also be mobile enough that it could change location to suit the continuing story needs of the crew. Maybe build in a sort of embedded defiant class ship that can break off and be the mission ship for the Larger hub ship (Like the Thor is for the Embassy). Make the big ship low com
  18. Oh the Klingons, how I have such conflicted feelings about you. As far at the poll goes, use our status as Friend to do what we can to convince them to change their more troubling ways. I've always had issues with the Klingons, they feel too one note to me. I've never been able to figure them out or find any way to connect with them personally. ~Patrick
  19. I would love a Star Trek crossed with West Wing show (So while not Starfleet, it would be focusing on the Federation Council and government). I think a Ground Facility would be interesting but they'd need to find a way to give them agency when everyone can come and go as they want. While not a ground facility I think maybe setting it at UP might be neat. ~Patrick
  20. Picking one, I'd pick the mek'leth. That said, I have complicated opinions (surprise surprise). Based on the fact that most any melee weapon used in the Star Trek universe is most likely needed to be used on a ship, you're going to want something shorter that a full length weapon like the lirpa, and the ahn-woon would need space to be able to use properly, something a narrow corridor or a jefferies tube might not allow. I'd want something I could carry on my that could be sheathed and out of the way 99% of the time, which limits the list down to the shorter side, daggers and knife varia
  21. For those who may have been following my decent down rabbit holes, I have posted the document to the Species Guild forum group looking for comments and critiques. If you have a chance and are interested take a look. ~Patrick
  22. I am now actively researching how terrioir is described, how different varieties of grapes are classified, and how wine is made. Once this is done, I'll move on to spirits, probably starting with gins as I know the least about those. Even if this is never actually approved for use in game, I now must see this through. I may be lost. ~Patrick
  23. Oh lord, this is a rabbit hole I could get lost down. If no one hears from me in a week send help.
  24. Yeah, I think my general rule of thumb with names is if I replaced the Species (Bajoran, Bolian, Trill) with Terran, would it make any sense. In the OP example of a Bollian Soufflé, if I told the replicator Terran Souffle would that be enough information to get an answer (in this case I would bet not, unless the replicators work on a default setting that allows them to dispense some generic option when given a generic request. But Terran Souffle wouldn't let the replicator know if I meant sweet or savory, and any number of options below that). The Spring Wine example. If I ordered Terr
