Now, I know people are interested in Star Trek. This is a loose rp based on the book Genesis Wave. Basically, it was about the genesis project that was the center of Star trek 2 except this time someone reconfigured it to carried on a massive wave that moves at more than light speed and destroys (reconfigures) everything in its path.

Your role will be stop the evil from gaining on your home planet. In order to do this, you'll have to work together with other players. The setting is the tng era.

Profile template _
Personality and looks:

Name: 8 of 5 (previously called Javin Andora)
Species: Borg (Bajoran)
Age: 34
Specialties: warp field technician / borg specialist
Personality and looks: well, he's borg
History: Javin was previously a borg specialist who examined the borg devasted colonies. Unfortunately, much like Anita's (7 of 9) father, he was assimulated into the collective. Although he is a borg, his subconscious tells him to protect his race and civilization as well as feel for the galactic well-being of many races. He continues to have conflicts within himself. It is interesting to see how his conflict manifest itself when the genisis wave prepares to destroy his homeworld.

Perhaps you should post this in the "RP interest ideas forum" to see whether more people would be interested to play.

Do you have a ship configuration in mind, how many crew will be on board, etc?

04/13/2006 4:16 PM

Well... i didn't want to put anything more in that forum... i've already flooded it with 3 of the same thing.

as for ship configuration.. we could have some type of science vessel and then as we rp, we can switch onto a larger vessel ... (for example, our ship gets run over with a loss of all hands except the bridge officers who are all beamed over into the enterprise-d) i think a large part of why we like ST is because of exploring the environment. for example, we could have a minirpg in the holodeck, or tackling a romulan vessel - all before the genesis wave arrives. i haven't read the archives on how previous star trek rps were done, htough

but one thing i think would be really helpful is the existence of antagonists. for example, we could allow some enemies that would introduce themselves and foil plans. for example, the ferengis, the borg, the genesis parasite, or a subspace monster that prevents us from attaining warp speed.

as for the beginning vessel, it could be a nova class (in voy: equinox) science vessel, lightly armored, lightly weaponed, slow speeds. 200 crewmen at max.

Also possible would be a norway class or a remodelled akira. Both are low on crewsize. ;)

I might jump in on this, if you wouldn't mind having a cameloid on board? :D

04/14/2006 6:06 PM

well, i guess that'd be fine...

as for a cameloid, like to one in star trek 6 or like odo?

04/16/2006 1:41 AM

The one in 6, not a founder.

04/16/2006 3:00 PM

The one in 6, not a founder.

well, I'm just going to start anyway! asap ... pretty soon... ;-)

04/17/2006 3:28 AM

Ok, Lreth, I might be able to get a few people aboard, so you just give this thing a good start. ;)

04/19/2006 10:43 AM

hey, how about you start it?

Hey, this is your rp, the honor is entirely yours.

If I may place a comment though, the name of your character, you may wish to revise it to 5 of 8? The first number indicates the designation in the group among the borg, the second the number of 'units' in the group. ;)

04/19/2006 4:50 PM

well, i did start it... but you didn't respond to it. I saw you log in.

Apparently it was too detailed.

5 of 8 is a good idea but I'm just thinking of dropping the whole character altogether and go with a starfleet ensign... I have no idea how to get him to interact with whatever character you'll make.

Name: D'Yanir Sharr
Species: Cameloid
Age: Hard to determine, but the starfleet record states 143 years.
Specialties: Command, Away team specialist.
Personality and looks: Difficult to say, but her preferred state seems to be a female, looking to be around her early thirties, long raven hair and a cream colored skin.
History: D'Yanir went through the academy as one of the first of her race. First mission was as a security officer on board the USS Lexington. Transferred to Nova class USS Uxbridge, serving as a junior command officer at the rank of lieutenant. Recommendation for outstanding service and promoted to lieutenant commander.

D'Yanir is currently on leave for several months, visiting her homeworld.

This might make it a little easier for you. :)
I hadn't noticed that you had made a first post, sorry.

Ok, caught the opening post and read it, will post soon. :)

Nice start, Lreth.

04/23/2006 1:39 PM

:P, looks like it'll just be us two, unless some others will join. you can introduce yourself anyway you want. if it's just us two, then we both can be threadmasters and tell the story however we choose.

04/23/2006 7:38 PM

Caelin, I just want you to know that I am not going to quit. I will not allow my first Star Trek rp to go down into the drain, therefore I will keep at it until I finish it like a novel.

04/23/2006 7:39 PM

I hope you do the same.

04/24/2006 9:47 AM

Don't worry. I'll ask Kalia and a few others to peek in here too. ;)

Been too long since I had a game of this genre, so I won't let up. I'll have a post up soon, I promise.

04/27/2006 3:30 PM


as you can see, I deleted that remark about how women focused too much on relationship

anyway... my new post is up and you can join any time... or you can end the holosimulation in any way you want...

Whoa! I was kinda hoping you'd come in with your 50 meter starship and help me out but... alright ...!

05/01/2006 12:27 AM

I can rewrite if you want. ;)

05/01/2006 12:33 PM

It's okay!

05/01/2006 12:55 PM

Oh, if you want to go deep into the details of our ship, I found a neat website even better than the wikipedia version of the nova class. Here it is:


Also, how do you plan on joining our vessel? Starfleet normally doesn't allow passengers on starships unless its official business. Or does it?

Oh, and I was wrong about the weapons. Apparently we have 11 phasor arrays and 3 photon torpedo launchers.. hmm

05/03/2006 4:13 PM

Well, I'm going to write one about the genesis wave... what do you want our assignments to be? I could say the romulans are invading, but then that would force us out of the genesis wave focus. Whatever you want, too, I guess. reply!!

05/05/2006 2:05 PM

Let's stick with the genesis wave, the ship going to earth to examine what happened, etc?
