So unless someone invented an android that can ingest food and have emotions and kept it a big secret it's safe to say he's a humanoid.

So I got real blazed after work and noticed a new Star Trek movie called Renegade. At first I thought it was some lame fan film then I looked into it and found it stars Chekov as an admiral, Tuvok shows up and the beloved Dr. Zimmerman is featured as well. The production value is above a few of the shows and movies and is honestly worth a watch. Your in for a treat.


Toke and enjoy TOS and Voyager references. Peace.

Deep Space Nine did Babylon 5 with better effects.
No fan project is gonna be the next TNG. At least not yet.

Star Trek Continues hits the nail right on the fucking head though. And unlike previous productions with perfect sets, horrible lighting/camera work and god awful actors, Star Trek Continues has a cast made up almost entirely of Funimation voice actors. So at least they can sell the audio while the costumes, sets, lighting, camera work and editing are all pitch-perfect.
New episode soon.

You might not be into it at first but as soon as you hear Jimmy Doohan's son do the voice, you'll be in. It's perfect. Also LOL Grant Imahara from mythbusters.

This thread can be about any and all Star Trek games but I mainly want to talk about an idea for a game I shared a while back on IRC.

This is a very ambitious idea (and will probably never see the light of day unless people more competent than me show initiative) but imagine a game on Wii U where everyone had a tablet controller. Each player would have a specific role like captain, executive officer, chief security officer, and chief engineer. It's a space rougelike where you fly through a virtual universe and randomly encounter strange anomalies, aliens, and planets. The goal is just to get the most "exploration points", maybe it could even be "return to your home planet at the other end of the galaxy." There'd still be a general "crew" but that'd mainly be a long term resource management minigame.

In between events, each player would have to complete a travel minigame and communicate information only they're privy to on their tablet, like the engineer would have to verbally tell the captain the status of the warp core and fix it, the executive officer telling the captain the happiness levels of the crew, and the chief security officer asking the captain to redirect power to weapons to blast aestroids out of the way. You'd have to work together doing different things and communicating effectively to succeed. It's like the android game Spaceteam. There's also stuff happening on the TV, which is like the bridge.

Once you hit an event all bets are off. Missions can take place on the ship, on a planet, or never even leave the bridge. Some missions you control your characters on the big screen simultaneously, some missions each player just uses their tablet. The chief security officer can get infected by a virus that turns him hostile. Now the other players have to find where he's hiding and take him out. The chief security officer has incentive to fight back because everyone also has some kind of "personal growth points" that make the game mildly competitive. Some missions are just dialogue trees that require all players to talk to each IRL to determine the best course of action. The captain still makes the final decision though. Obviously for misssion ideas, the actual shows are a goldmine. Some missions could even be like a rockband-type minigame for the purpose of "improving crew happiness." Some missions would involve half the team staying on the bridge and while the rest beamed down to retrieve a kidnapped crew member.

Basically it'd be like a cross between Space Engine, Spaceteam, and FTL plus story missions and a smidge of Mario Party (and a lot of Star Trek):
I tried to get my friends to play a prototype version where we fly around the galaxy using Space Engine on TV, play Spaceteam on our phones, and missions were just group talking to strangers in chatroulette or playing a mario party minigame. It wasn't great...but I still think the basic concept has potential.

Are any of you interested in working on this? I'm currently unemployed so I can afford to spend like 50% of my time on this. The main problem is that while I'm good at coming up with cool ideas, working out logistics, networking, and project management, I actually have no concrete skills like programming, art, and music. I already have music alledgedly covered by my RL friend (the guy who turned me on to Star Trek in the first place actually) but while the sound is certainly important it's far less crucial than the graphics and game programming. If there's interest I'll draw up a thorough game design document and we can go from there. Bear in mind that it'd be a lot of work and little pay. I certainly don't have the resources to hire anyone so it'd be a passion project until it hits the market years later. Maybe I'm just a cocky little bastard, but I think if this project gets real traction and we have a prototype to show them, Paramount Pictures would actually help us out (provided they get a cut of course). I think my idea would capture the feel of actually being on a Star Trek better than any of the existing games, even the MMOs.

I played puzzle pirates, it needed a java client. The system would work pretty well for a lot of stuff. Space combat would be a bit lame if the puzzles weren't cooler, if you don't have boarding the bnav has all the fun (the guy controlling the ship during battles). I used to be pretty good at the game but they added poker and also much like TNG at least that's all anyone did.

Also controlling characters in rules free multiplayer sounds like something you could do with SS13 and some tweaks.

A lot of servers run custom code and are fairly lag free. Gotta remember it's about the RP not who can smash a tool box into whose face first. I do recall there being versions that had the crew on a space ship, might have even been trek themed.

Either way the system is deep with all the sciences. Perfect for trek RP with the right skin job. USS Nanotrans NCC 1301

>There are already cyborgs in and out of military service living among us.

In some ways we will mirror trek, indeed sci fi has been the first step to inventing and discovering new ways to do things. In other ways we may have already surpassed trek. The long range telescopes in orbit attest to this as we have mapped a lot of the systems around us with out having to fly around a sector to chart it.

A thought on my mind was that: Gene Roddenberry set the tone for a show about diversity, discovery and discipline. Little did he know that his ideas on how to make a quick buck set our quantum matrix on a new course that included F.T.L travel sooner than we were supposed to discover it by accident.

We were driven by the desire to be like the show that we see on TV enough that our collective consciousnesses goes out of its way to make it a reality eventually (i.e Law of Attraction) also known as a self-fulfilling prophesy

There's were already literary works with themes of humanism and modernism back then, and he translated them onto television.

As for prophesy, I not so sure, as society could possibly get derailed by post-modernism and anti-humanism. All the trigger-warning and safe spaces are giving rise to a warped definition of diversity and inclusivity.

I liked Spock's Brain. Campy yes, silly yes. Nimoy hated it, yes. But it had charm, and was 10 times better than trash like "Turnabout Intruder", even if that episode didn't have the bitter note of being the last TOS ep.

I also liked how they described the women as "The Givers of Pain, and Delight", that was clever, and Spock's "Brain in a Box" experience was interesting to imagine as well.

Actual ethanol does add to the taste and smell of alcoholic drinks. If it didn't people would have never come up with the idea of cocktails to cover up the taste of liquor.

It's not just alcohol either. It's mentioned a few times that some people can taste the difference between replicated food and conventionally produced fruits, vegetables, and meats.

It's not enough for most people to really notice a difference but it indicates that replicators aren't quite perfect in reproducing flavor profiles of food.

I've always assumed that synthehol was mostly there to imitate the taste, smell, and burn of actual ethanol, without the intoxicating effects.

Actually that one is sort of covered. All life was designed to come out fairly similar to not be alone, I imagine having similar protein chirality/immune systems would have also been addressed by the advanced aliens who planned that we'd all have humanoid forms. Now how they could plan life to such a degree at a billion years distance is a far bigger question that comes under endless Deus Ex Machina and Mcguffins.

So from my understanding you can be using warp drive but still be going at sub luminal velocities. And correct me if im wrong on this, it's possible to go lower than warp one but still be using it for propulsion to just move crazy fast bust slower than ligh right?

What is the lowest possible known threshold given in warp factors one could could say you are traveling at warp speed.

>I imagine people like the Klingons just steamroll any species they find in their space

I always had to question the nature of the Federation's alliance with them. You have to assume that the Klingons would still be forcibly conquering planets somewhere out there. And doing so in ways that would make the Federation none too happy.

It's probably only a defensive alliance in the treaty. The call-to-arms would only apply if either one was attacked. They can't call the other one in for conquest.

Fair enough answer. But then at what point do you decide whats good cannon and bad cannon?

I don't see why the warp field can't be maintained at sub luminous speed.

You mean how finely do we split the hairs? I don't know and I'm not *that* obsessive about it. But some of the shit that's found its way into canon should be easily jettisoned without an argument, like the Threshold goofiness.

I remember on a few ship scanner read outs the ships engaging in combat but at high velocity and interweaving between one another. So you could travel fast and turn quite quickly and in a small space.

What's the level of my autism?
Every time I watch a good star trek episode, it feels like I know each one of them personally, empathy levels go up and I can feel all their joys and grieves quite deeply. Like overdriving my emotional chip. Other tv shows or movies don't get me that much.

I guess, if you really think about it, Data is the creepiest thing ever. There's no telling what he'll do next, yet everyone trusts him completely. It's bizarre... and you just have to roll with it.

But some people also empathize with Barclay, which I find almost as odd. So I dunno.

There's times where i agree completey. Data has taken over the ship numerous times, assaulted crew on several occasions, etc. His strength is like a superpower...you'd think they would have created a dampening system to lower his strength until needed. The same way you don't see crew members running around with a high power phaser rifle slung over their shoulder at all times, they only grab them when they need them or are instructed to by a superior officer.

Data is a holdover from the first season of TNG, where technology is near-magical to the crew of the ship - the computer is beyond most of them, and can produce wonders they can't comprehend.

Same deal with Data. Technology seems to befuddle the residents of the future.

She can't read ferengi emotions either, and it's established that that's only because their brains work too differently from the majority of humanoid species.
