    My all time favorite Foundry Mission so far has got to be "The Spirits of Ramok Nor".
    I'm into Star Trek for the emotion. The emotion of people who put their lives on the line for planets they've never set foot on, for people they've never met. This grand future of the Federation where humanity is a wondrous force (most of the time).
    So anything that explores those feelings, those emotions, deep character plots, is wonderful for me. The whole reason DS9 is one of my favorite of the series is because it had some very moving, very emotional episodes that got you thinking about the thoughts of another person, their hopes and dreams, the reasons they did what they did. No one in that show was ever totally bad, not even Gul Dukat, and it was great to see the show explain to you why.

    Spirits of Ramok Nor is as good as some of DS9's best episodes, and it feels like one of them too. It explores the occupation and the wellspring of emotion and feeling behind it, and it does so in a fashion very reminiscent of the best writing of Star Trek.

    Since this thread has been re-ignited, I'll give the politically-correct answer that there are MANY Foundry missions which count as my favorite.

    One mission which gets overlooked, imho, is "Evangeline" by Etherghost.

    I LOVE this mission!

    I didn't play "Evangeline" until after I crafted my first Foundry mission. Interestingly, our styles are somewhat similar. Story-driven, dialog-infused Trek goodness about characters, their situations, overcoming difficulty and adversity in a scenario where NO other friendly starships are going to warp in and help save you.

    The mission design is stellar.

    More information: http://starbaseugc.com/index.php/ugcmissions/federation/evangeline/

    Like most Foundry authors, I'd like to think my missions will eventually get more gameplay and better recognition. I hope missions, like "Evangeline", are enjoyed for a long, long time, too.

    Gonna add on to this for great justice.


    Going Viral by Pi-3Orionis for the K.D.F.

    This is a really fun and solid mission with great feel to it's flow and dialog. Should get a lot more plays and probably better than third in the contest it was involved in. But, that's just my opinion.

    Heck I'll post mine - they need some love too :P

    They are my two part episode, "Treasure of Argelius II"

    It /they are intended as a sequel to the official Cryptic (Klingon front) mission, "Treasure Trading Station".

    I wish we know who said this...

    But I have to agree. "The Spirits of Ramok Nor" is probably the best Foundry mission out there.

    I have a Cardassian captain that I played the mission with...and I literally almost cried, experiencing his emotions at the whole thing: the grief, shame, and utter helplessness to do more to undo his people's past.

    Just finished "Predetermined Coincidences" by Dewey001 and wanted to extoll it's virtues. Combines action and a good storyline with familiar elements from a couple of Trek flicks. Great mission deserving of Spotlight status. Make it so!

    i played Krios Falling a few weeks ago, before it became a spotlight; it was indeed very awesome, if a bit too lengthy for my tastes

    I just wanted to let everybody know that with the kind permission of DenizenVI, I have written and posted an adaptation of his excellent mission, "Conjoined."

    For the lone Devidian serving in Starfleet, the discovery awaiting in the Gameptis system had a very special resonance indeed.

    For the moment, I cannot post my favorite 5 as I only have a ONE favorite SERIES! The series is call ST: Odyssey by dariuskoronikov. This series starts with the trilogy: The Olympus Trilogy and lasts the span of 40 episodes total (including the three of the trilogy itself). This series actually gave me the final inspiration to write my own series (which is still in the works right now), and I have had communications with dariuskoronikov, who has given me his permission to use his series' characters in my own series (with a few provisoes, of course). I will let you know what the status of the series is when I am super-close to publishing the first episode (which may be a while)!

    "Relics" by Kirkfat, for good use of the interaction between religion and Trek-level science, good use of map-altering triggers (which ought to be a given, seeing as it comes from the guy who wrote most of the tutorials on them), inadvertent* TRIBBLE flirting between my captain and an NPC (which just made me laugh), and brilliant use of lampshade hanging. I liked it so much I wrote a page for it on TV Tropes.

    "One Too Many" by XR-377, for hilarious parody of many a Foundry and Star Trek Online standby and another inadvertent TRIBBLE (accounted for in a dialog option this time!).

    "In the Shadow of MIDAS, Part 1" by thegreendragoon1. Good call back to late Voyager, good dialog writing and map design, and bonus points for prompt and gracious response to me pointing out a plot hole.

    The "Dark Alliance" series by skydawnknight, particularly "Dark Alliance 2: Black Spiral". The allusions to a noodle incident involving my PC and Saria were very intriguing, and the various side interactions in the Aurora lounge were hilarious. Also, good use of reskinned mobs throughout and good dialog.

    * "Inadvertent" due to the Foundry lacking gender-operated dialog tags.

    Has to be 'The Atlas Affair' by Nagorak. Which is also part one of a three parts series, and they're honestly quite good.

    Basically, you are investigating pirate affairs in whichever sector it takes place in (Don't quite remember the exact details). Once you've discovered who the pirates are you have to stop them. But something goes wrong. *uh-oh...*

    It has a great story, and whichever choices you make effects the end-game. It's amazingly done, and it is, in my opinion, the best foundry mission out there.

    Only had a chance to play a few(as I'm still working my way through the main storyline), but 'First Cause, then Effect' was very enjoyable.... :)
    When in doubt...Gravity Well TO THE FACE!! :D

    City of the Polmar Ree by Alimac

    All time favorite.
    Sometimes I think something else has become my favorite, then I replay Polmar Ree and realize I was mistaken.
    City of the Polmar Ree gets me right in the feels. Every time, even though by now I know exactly what's coming.

    Very few missions have an ability to do that.

    The Infinite Realities series by Captain Revo. 6-part story involving the mirror universe and another alternate reality where the Borg won in TNG: "The Best of Both Worlds" and the rest of the AQ powers united to fight back. Also ties in story bits from Deep Space Nine.

    I'm throwing a shout out here for "Malleus Maleficarum" by Dewey001.

    It's a really good mission that has a low amount of plays, but, I know he recently just submitted it for spotlighting so with luck and attention there is a chance it gets out there to the wider world!

    Add "Forget Me Not" by Sovereign77x to the list. I rated that one 4.5 out of 5 and recommended he give it a few touch-ups and submit it for spotlighting.
