Twid does Foundry missions on Star Trek Online
« on: August 29, 2013, 04:36:31 am »
So, people who play STO can make user generated missions. They are limited to 40 (48 if subscribed) missions. Assume 48. If I approach my limit, I will subscribe. But I'm looking for an overall story arc. STO takes place in 2409, btw.  (Voyager returns to Alpha Quadrant in 2378, Nemesis takes place in 2379, and Romulus is destroyed in 2387. The Romulan Republic is a recent thing, as an example)

Things I want to address:
The Federation is not the utopia you think it is.
You remember those random aliens that showed up in one episode? Well, they're back. I'm thinking First Federation, a newly warp capable Magna Roma (Roman Empire with 20th century technology as visited by Kirk), Humans were abducted by the Skaggarans and successfully rebelled as cowboys but were encountered by Archer's Enterprise, that sort of thing. Feel free to recommend more.
Risa is a Boring Planet to go to. So is Andoria. So is Vulcan. So is, for that matter, Earth. Let's change that.
A torn Romulan Republic- they want to be independent, but there is an undercurrent of reunification with Vulcan.
Federation Civil War in the future. Some sort of temporal displacement and holy shit, and what do we do when we get home, now that we know what will happen...

Oh, and remember that planet that Riker went to and had to have sex with the nurse to escape, and for once he was actually reluctant to have sex with an alien? Yeah, they were on the verge of warp capability. I'm thinking Riker's bastard kid there.... First contact sort of mission (we can reference but not show established Star Trek characters). Hey, my dad's an alien. Are you those aliens? If not, can you put me in touch?

Riker is a Goddamn sissy.

I will fuck those little grey big-headed bastards.  SOBER.

I am thinking of injecting a healthy does of Trek parody in there.

For example, I want to do one mission where, for some reason, you have to host a Kirk family reunion, and like 30% of the attendees are totally human, and 100% of them hit on you. Except for one Cardassian, who is Elim Garak's kid, since he's a crazy pansexual spy who happens to be there to get some from some Kirk.

I get the Kirk thing.

The rest means nothing to me.

Classic Star Trek or GTFO.

Elim Garak was a character on DS9. He was supposedly a (Cardassian) tailor civilian, but always with an (off the bat) hint that he was a Cardassian spy. Turned out that a) that assumption was correct. b) that no where near told his whole story.

But the best, best, best part, is that he was perhaps the closest character to get to Gene Roddenberry's promise of a gay character, which he promised and failed to deliver upon with Next Generation.

Let me see if I can find the link. The producers told the guy who played Garak to tone the sexuality down. He was trying to be progressive where Star Trek was stalling.

Well, here's one about Garak talking about the utopia that is the Federation, while I keep searching.

That's actually kind of brilliant.

Post TNG is not as friendly to the UFP. It's still friendly but here's another awesome bit:

Can't find a good clip, but here's the quote, also from DS9:

Quote from: Michael Eddington
The Federation's more insidious than the Borg. At least the Borg tell you they're going to assimilate you. The Federation assimilates entire races, and they don't even realize it..

Ok. Go from 1:20 up until about 3:08, where the commentator starts talking again and ruining the moment. Then fast forward to 4:00 and go on to 4:10. The guy who plays Garak flat out said that this was intended, on his part, to be a homosexual flirtation, where it wasn't scripted.

He and Quark were my two favorites.

Yep. There's more to him than that, and he comes out the hero often enough.

Also, when it was airing, I was unaware of that particular stereotype. I always figured he was supposed to be more of a stark contrast to the post-capitalist Federation, as were all Ferengi. I believe they were likened to Yankee traders when they were introduced.
