Brainstorming

If you have any ideas or things you'd love to see made, be it weapons, ship designs or just general questions so a FAQ section can be created if needed, please post away!

Oh wow, I can't believe i'm asking this but...Drone Connies, Yes Drones. Like in the Star Trek PS2 Game Shattered Universe, I want connies that are unmanned and have the War Machine brain thing like in TOS. Not as Evil though, just as support ships or something. Also I would like to see a Nomad weapon, the planet destroyer and also the original rock planet destroyer ship as well. Oh and the episode is "The Ultimate Computer" and the weapon is called the M5, so i'd like to see some Connies with that, maybe as units you have to repair or something but still.

Also for Good Star Trek Help, wikipedia is a good reference on things.

Intreging, could be done with a modified computer overide. I'd have to watch the episode again to get it. Its been ages n ages since I watched a TOS. TNG+ are my stronger suits lol but I'll research that out. Shattered Universe isnt strictly 'canon' as such anyway, but I'll look into it.

The Idea is that the eras until Nemesis are kept as close to the canon show as possible, so you feel as though you are playing in that era to enhance the gameplay performance and enjoyment of it all really. Thats our aim anyway. One of many as a Borg Queen would say

Yeah, i've been oogling at Wikipedia to look at Canon star trek TOS things, like ship information and ect. There's not really many episodes where you see the ship meeting another Federation ship, most of the ship designs are speculation so even if you have an uncanon design in there, it would still work out I think.

I was thinking the same thing, but keep the original view of the ship, but just add new parts to it, like the NX With Conny Engines and A Conny Saucer. Or the NX with a Reliant Style Engines and saucer, you know something of that sort.

I think they already have an updated version of the NX class... called the Akira. Just kidding :) I'd like to see a TOS version of the Reliant. It's entirely beleivable that they would have had the class then.

A good book for conjectural TOS ship designs is The Star Trek Star Fleet Technical Manual by Franz Joseph. I own a copy, but I have no idea where it is. If you can get your hands on one, it'd be a nice start for TOS ships.

Ooooo an updated NX-class, with Akira-class nacelles and a Galaxy-class deflector, lol. Oh Adam at Sci-Fi Meshes there are several TNG designed ships with NX-class textures that could be useful and not to mention many non-canon designs to fill up the bulk of the fleet in that Era. I suggest you look at Star Trek Schematics site for other designs as they are quite interesting. The sad thing is that in the series there were not many stations on-screen for ENT or TOS and for the different races in those Eras. But I have full confidence in you and your team to come up with awesome looking stations and ships for Future Tense 2! I can't wait for further information on the contents of the mod!

How about being able to refit the Enterprise G during the timeframe modulation. Perhaps have different refits for different timeframes and such.

Good look
