Greetings Programs! The Foundry Roundtable is starting another community mission series, this time based in the 26th Century. We have lots of 26th Century ships to play with and we're going to take them to another galaxy.
We're still firming up the details, but the basic setup will be this:
In the 26th Century, a natural disaster involving the sun threatens the entire solar system. Starfleet scientists come up with a plan to protect Earth from the effects of the disaster, but something goes wrong, and the whole planet is flung across the universe to somewhere in the Centaurus A galaxy. It's exact location in that galaxy is unknown. The Enterprise J, equipped with a special hyperwarp engine, will lead a task force of Federation ships, plus the Klingon and Romulan 26th Century flagships, in search of Earth.
The Roundtable will be developing a short into mission, and once our task force arrives in Sagittarius, we will turn the story over to the community! Who knows what adventures await us in a new galaxy? Right after the next season downtime, we will hold a mission building challenge for this anthology. We also hope to create an ending mission once we have a library of great adventures in Centaurus.
In the mean time, we need community input on:
- What year should the series take place in?
- Characters! We need some. We'll need four or five officers from each of the Starfleet, Romulan and Klingon Flagships. Please suggest some characters in this thread. Either characters who will reasonably still be serving more than a century from the STO timeframe, or make up some brand new characters. We are developing 26th Century uniforms (with an eye towards outfits players can wear) so all we need are head designs. If we get a lot of suggestions, we may hold some polls to determine who gets to go on the task force.
- The Enterprise J has a captain in STO lore, a new female Dax host which we plan to use. However, we need a first name for her. Please suggest some names!
We hope to have good participation in this like we had for the Iconian and AEI series. We think there's a lot of fun to be had with the 26th Century. How are relations between the Feds, Klingons and Romulans? How are these races different from 2410? What kinds of strange things will they find in a foreign galaxy?
