This is where we decide details of our ship.

Ship creation
So are there ideas what kind of ship do we want? What era are we playing?

So era will determine which ships are available to us. In STA there are "Enterprise Era", "TOS Era" and "TNG nad beyond era". Which one do you think you wish to play?

Re: Ship creation
That might be fun. A crew of Klingon privateers? That might be better TOS era.

Only marginal interest.  Not opposed to it, but...I mean, I guess if I want a promotion I just have to kill the guy ahead of me lol

At the end of the day, as I told the GM, story trumps all for me...if going Klingon is what the group wants, I can rp that, however, is there a book for running a Klingon game, or would we just assume the starfleet creation track would equal the klingon naval track??

I have seen a number of species that appeal to me that I can't, most likely play, as they are in other quadrants :)

Re: Ship creation
Or maybe an 'undercover insurgency' game ... where we play a Federation team going in undercover, to maybe rescue someone or such?

Sure ... but that might not be as easy as you think.  And the GM might have the caveat that if you fail, you make a new character ... or that character now gets an ongoing +1 against you as a for of social dominance and fear (which might count as for giving you orders, AND any future duels the two of you go into).

Well, depending on if the GM wants, we could do a variation of that.  Ex-Starfleet officers with a really old or really small ship...or maybe even an alien ship (ie, klingon, or other race).   We don't have to be evil per se, but perhaps, wrongfully accused of something and discharged.  or, are ship was destroyed, we survived and were blamed, but escaped in another ship...all sorts of options that would allow us to have gone through Starfleet training but not be a part of Starfleet.

I can say, that I don't really want a HUGE ship, I prefer something smaller.  I am looking at ships now trying to find something I like to give everyone an idea of what I am interested in.

Re: Ship creation
Example: Saber-class Federation ship, crew of around 40.

Re: Ship creation
I think before we decide on ship, we should figure out what we’re doing.

Are we space pirates, raiding ships and stealing their crew?
Are we cops or spies? Maybe cosmic bounty hunters tracking dangerous criminals.
We could be MI 6 type agents.
Terrorists
Smugglers
As Klingons we could be escapees from Rura Penthee who stole a ship. On the run from Klingon empire.

Just a few ideas.
