Brayden Jorey Posted December 7, 2014 Share Posted December 7, 2014 Greetings and Salutations All,I would like to start a discussion on our (Federation, 118 Fleet) relationship with the other major powers (Klingon, Romulan, etc.). Why, you might ask? I have recently moved into Starfleet Intelligence and would like to keep up to date on the political climate. Besides that, the galaxy politics of the Star Trek has always been my favourite part of Trek. Getting a clear picture on this is tougher than one might think!For example, I have recently moved the Embassy on Duronis II/USS Thunder-A just outside of Federation space nestled between the Romulans and the Zalkonians. In this region (simming with the Thunderites), it became clear that the Romulans are most often portrayed as antagonists and villains. On the opposite side of Federation space in the Ithassa Region where I simmed on the Tiger, until its decommissioning, the Romulans were most often portrayed more often as uneasy allies who needed protection from the Klingons and a lot of help rebuilding and relocating following the Hobus supernova disaster.This is not to say that one ship (simming group) is right and the other wrong, but rather, that many different aspects of the fragmenting former Romulan Empire are being explored by different ships. Romuans act differently in different parts of the galaxy - this makes sense to me. However, the different dynamics ship to ship makes it somewhat difficult to get an idea of the 'big picture' of Federation politics.So here are a few questions:1. What does the political landscape look like in your part of the universe from the perspective of your respective ship?2. Would you find it useful to have an area on the wiki (in either the form of text or graphic) that you could get a quick sense of current relations between the Federation and the other powers? I'm also thinking a few quick bullet points (added by a member from each ship) of any recent events involving the other factions.3. Does knowing what is happening in the rest of the galaxy (on other ships) really matter to you?No matter what your answers and opinions are, I would love to hear them!Regards, 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
