Now it hasn't been around for ages (Least in the UK)

Does anyone want to do a Star Trek RP

I don't know what era yet but the later it is the more I know and I like Voyager best, it depends on what people would like to play most.

Don't be nerdphobic you don't really need to know anything at all about Star Trek to join.

What ever we do characters will be roughly the same as will the plot.

The crew of a yet to be christened NCC 9347 have been selected and a crew minus captain, bridge crew and secondary personal who are at Joshua station orbiting Jupiter. The ship is the first of its class with several improvements over its predecessors. It is to be launched in a few standard days time to reach Joshua station seven hours from then.
The ship isn't on the scale of the Enterprise being smaller in size and armaments but faster and more up to date technology. The actions and events will be varied from battles to rescue missions to exploring new worlds to visiting old ones.

I would ask people to play two characters, one as a member of the bridge crew and one as a member of the normal crew on a first dibs basis for positions. Normal crew members so we can get an idea of scope, First officer position is going to be selected by me from the bridge crew if you want to play 1st officer put that at the end of your post as well as the era you would want to play.

Rank/ Position;

Name: Rayven Noble
Rank/Position: Commander/Security or Command
Species: Human
Gender: Female
Age: 30
Description: Slender with long dark hair she normally wears in an intricate braid. Has dark blue eyes that are sometimes too expressive, betraying her thoughts. despite this she usually has a cool head in desperate situations.

Personality: Calm and cool, she has a real knack for command positions. though many wonder why she has a tendancy to be reclusive. Her only real friend on the ship is the Chief Medical officer.

History:Rayven Entered Starfleet Acadamy in 2360. Graduated in 2368. Served as a science officer on an outpost for three years before serving as a lt.commander on the uss. Thunderchild during the borg battle in Sector 0.

(Would prefer First officer. :D IF not Chief of security would be fine.... Give me a couple of days for a secondary character.)

Ideally as with most threads three or four people are what we need to get this off the ground.

If I was to use those dates for a base it would would be about 2373 which works fine or me (I guess for you too Kaila) but I'd still think about changing it if people want to.

Name; Zara L. Naylor
Rank: Captain
Species; 65/96 Human 5/24 Klingon 11/96 Vulcan
Gender: Female
Age: 42
Description: Captain Naylor is tall 6'3" with soft ginger hair pony tailed or in a bun. She has pale skin and slightly visible forehead lines, and Vulcan ears but otherwise human exterior minus faint ridges along her back. Her eyes are a very dark green. She looks younger that she is due to her heritage being expected to live at least 150 years due to the dominance of Klingon genetics. She has both the characteristic three lungs, heart and about half the ribs of a Klingon but a mostly otherwise human anatomy.

Personality: A blend of logic, inquisitivity and bravery. Zara is normally a compassionate person putting her crew first before anything. She is controlled but can snap when wound up the wrong way for a period of time. She typically will weight up all the options for situation before acting.

History: Starting from the rank of ensign on a medical ship after two years was promoted lieutenant for her actions at Q'pactal colony during the insurrection. She was then stationed retrieval ship USS Newderry as a member of operations and three years later promoted to lieutenant commander after a ionic storm killed her predecessor and most of the crew. She then severed on several ships during her career before given command of Motoko Urisha monitoring station where she remained for seven years before being given her first ship command as capitan of USS Azreal a support ship running between ships in the field.

She was captain of the USS Swindon at the battle of 001 the ship losing it warp core and both pontoons and primary photon launchers but reaming in the battle to the end. It was scrapped when the vessel was recovered as the ship was already out of date. Some of the crew were reassigned including most of the officers, the crew were mostly given leave till the launch of a new ship.

I too will post my crewman in a few days....

5/9 Human 2/9 Vulcan 1/3 Klingon

Teaching maths this year so can't help myself, lol- this adds up to 10/9.
(It's driving me mad trying to figure out how 9ths would actually work for heritage, lol)

Would be kind of interested but am really busy at moment so will have to see- don't want to commit and then slow you down.

09/27/2007 9:02 AM


Thats me after 8 hours of learning maths with a melted brain working with out 9ths

Yeah that was a moment of blondness it should be 5/9 2/9 2/9

Join in later if you want to we still need one more person to join really

09/27/2007 11:05 AM

Surely should be

HK HH (to represent halves- so half Klingon parent plus full human parent leads to...)
HHHK HHHH (now 3 quarters human offspring plus full human..)
HHHHHHHK KKKKKKKK (so now 1 eighth Klingon offspring with full Klingon)
HHHHHHHKKKKKKKKK VVVVVVVVVVVVVVVV (7:9 H:K- can't believe I'm at 16ths, lol...)
HHHHHHHKKKKKKKKKVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, Which is Zara. So, counting up that's... H39/96ths K9/96ths and V48/96ths, so near enough 4:1:5, which means a bit more Vulcan than Human.

Oh my head hurts....

After all that I hope I find the time to work out some characters when I get back- it's been been quite a while since I've even seen Star Trek so I'll have to do a little revision homework :)

09/27/2007 11:58 AM

Uh.... ..... uh......

The science of genetics is coming back to me..... well I'm feeling pretty thick right now. It was meant to be a representation so she's partly Vulcan, party Klingon and mostly Human.

65/96 Human 20/96 Klingon 11/96 Vulcan

Thanks for all the effort you put into making it more real.

09/27/2007 1:20 PM

First time I've been thanked for my anal-ness/obsessive-compulsiveness, lol.
But I've seen the effort you put into your characters so figured you'd want to be accurate :)

Description: Joseph is 6'4", his dark brown hair goes down just to the top of his ear. He has hazel eyes that seem to penetrate anyone he stares at for a long period of time. Is well built, and toned. The only part of him that appears Vulcan are his ears, as they do come to the classic Vulcan point.

Personality: Joseph is generally very calm, collected and logical, however he sometimes does become angry, thanks to his human side. He is highly intellectual and loves a challenge. He is very social, however he also does like his alone time with a good book, whether it be fictional or factual. In general he is an easy going guy who gets along with everyone. He does tend to become stoic if someone challenges his belief's and does fall back on many of the Vulcan traditions his father taught him.

History: Joseph began at the academy in 2362 and graduated 2367. After his graduation he became an ensign aboard the star ship U.S.S. Saiden. After a few years aboard he gained the rank of Lieutenant and was transfered to the U.S.S. Imperia. He served there as an assistant to the chief of operations. He served on that post until the chief of operations was killed in a fire fight with a Borg Sphere. Upon the death, Lieutenant Hadrian was give a field promotion to the rank of Lieutenant Commander and took over the job of Chief Operations Officer. When Captain Miller retired from the Imperia to teach at the Academy, Hadrian put in for the Captains position. When he did not receive it he asked for a transfer, and finally got it.

(If Kalia takes First Officer I would like to take Chief of Security ;p if thats alright with you.)

Eventually he worked his way into Starfleet and became a cook aboard many star ships. He had an argument with a captain on his last posting and requested a transfer. He knows thousands of drinks and types of food just from memory.

The characters fine just it would be on deck 3 or 4 not 10 if that was what the bar/crew function room was named.

Ship statistics

N.C.C. 93471 U.S.S. COLUMBUS

Swiss Class

* Type: Explorer
* Production Base: ASDB Integration Section, Spacedock 3, Earth
* Accommodation: 275 officers and crew; 1000 personal evacuation limit
* Power Plant: Two 1,200+ Cochrane warp cores feeding two nacelles and temporal buffer; two impulse systems
* Length: 390.76 meters
* Mass: 694,000 metric tons
* 17 decks
* Performance: Warp 10.17 for 15 hours cruise at 9.5
* Armament: 5 type-10 phaser emitters; 4 type-8 Pulse phasers; three photon torpedo launchers
* Defenses: Multi-adaptive, Metaphasic, Immersion and Deflector Shields

The Columbus is similar to the Intrepid class (voyager) but with a more rounded front and wider engineering section to incorporate two warp cores. The ship is also 90 meters longer with the nacelles raised above the ship rather than under. The ship is the first full produced federation vessel capable of above warp 10 under it's own power.

Is that ok with everybody?

09/28/2007 11:35 AM

Sounds good to me. Just tell me what deck you want the bar area to be in and I will change it.

PS: I think I still have the star trek rendering program stuck on my old CPU somewhere, I will see if I can dig it up and create your ship in living color.

09/28/2007 2:47 PM

Deck 3 is about right

I was looking at a rendering program but I don't have the money and can't find a demo or free ware version.

09/28/2007 3:02 PM

What is the program called? I used to have the Star Trek Ship creator but its not where I thought it was...

09/29/2007 8:31 AM

Apparently star trek starship creator warp 2

I'm getting Escape velocity on torrent (Circa 1996) and see if that works

I'll put up the thread later today but I have a beast of a headache right now

09/29/2007 1:10 PM

Nanuk could you put in a character sheet even if you don't want to join right now it would be harder to add you later...

Posting now

09/30/2007 3:27 PM

So what positions are we going with?

10/01/2007 5:49 AM

Nanuk could you put in a character sheet even if you don't want to join right now it would be harder to add you later...

Was away at Longleat for the weekend, just back, and [i]very[/i] sleep deprived, but I'll try my best to get something up soon

(and I haven't forgotten about Forsaken, Kalia ;))

10/01/2007 8:51 AM

At the moment the crew stands as

Captain: Zara L. Naylor
First officer: Rayven Noble (But if she doesn't post in the next few days that may change)
Chief of Security: Joseph Hadrian
Comms officer:
Medical officer:
Science officer:
Helms man:
Engineering officer:
Ships Counselor:

So Nanuk gets a pop as choosing hers then everyone can make up a npc or I can, BTW the thread is up and running so we can use that from now on


10/01/2007 9:07 AM

I'll most likely go Medical or Science, as I don't have enough technospeak to pull off Engineering, lol. But you let me know which it'd be more useful for what you have in mind and I can tailor it to that.

10/01/2007 10:58 AM

Either is fine but traditionally the medical officer gets more to do than the science officer other than Spock.

Really its up to you both would be useful as I plan on doing very varied sets of missions

10/01/2007 5:30 PM

*Evil Grin* I'll usurp 1st officer if I can haha! :)

10/03/2007 11:53 AM

I found out a buddy of mine had ST Ship Creator 1 and 2 so I'm going to run by his house tonight and grab it from him, I'll work on your ship when I get home from work.

10/03/2007 12:30 PM

Uh I did fine them in the end, most places just call it starship creator.

It's not really that good, I have got almost the ship but you can't change parts other than the ones they give you. For some reason Gmax wont work any more on my laptop so I'll have to fine away around that.
