    I'm not sure it would work the way envisioned. Against one starship, sure, but take one of the fleets from the Dominion War with a coordinated, timed simultaneous attack and ZAP! overloaded shields...

    Um, you didn't actually read the credits in the .PDF, which read:
    Planetary Phaser Batteries is a fan-written information sheet intended for use by Narrators running Star Trek role-playing...

    No idea who the writers would have been, but a partial list of announced projects was the Starfleet Marines Sourcebook, the Federation Civilians Sourcebook, the afore-mentioned Gorn Supplement and a...

    I recently tried to join a game on Roll20 and found it almost impossible to get into - very poorly set up and unintuitive. Also, it's done via live chat, so you have to be available when they want...

    I've done some calculations based on the cutaway image (same one Omega1967 presumably used) and rescaled the top view to the section, so based on a quick calculation, the ship's overall length is...

    I'm going to surprise everyone and agree with Waveman. Go forward - the next logical step is the 25th century. The 25th century uniforms already established in Voyager should be discarded, though,...

    Actually, the Discovery series is produced under the Bad Robot licence, so technically it's an offshoot of the movies. But yeah, the whole post-Viacom disintegration has completely screwed up the...

    It seems that CBS has a problem with lying to viewers. First it was that "Benedict Cumberbatch is not playing Khan". This was a flat-out lie. They should have gone with the vaguely misleading rumours...

    Or at least admit it's a different timeline. Embracing the multiverse and exploring the concept would go far to appease purists and neo-fans alike. Something similar to what Enterprise did with the...

    Please reduce the size of your images drastically. Any image posted on the web should be no more than about 1000 pixels high, unless they're intended to be printed out, and even then these are...

    I'm doing deckplans for this beastie in M20 scale (20 pixels = 1 metre), showing speculative deck layouts for both it and the smaller variant which was shown in matte paintings for the hangar...

    I can't see Schnaubelt, an admitted non-fan, coming up with it on his own. Since he originally wrote the Tech Manual for his daughter's fan club, I'll bet you dollars to donuts the notion came from...

    Just 'cause. Why do fanboys always insist their ships be humongous heavily armed battlewagons when "we come in peace (shoot to kill)"? 'Cause fanboys are Stoo-pid!

    The Centaurans entered Star Trek lore due to the line which referred to Zefram Cochrane as Cochrane of Alpha Centauri in TOS's Metamorphosis. Many took this to mean Cochrane was from Alpha Centauri....

    Got your message. Thank you very much. I'll let you know in a couple of days.

    You were, but you aren't any more. If you don't think the Sovvie should have saucer separation abilities, by all means don't use that capability in your game. Your Trek universe is YOUR Trek universe...

    Unfortunately, Steve did not have the full infotermation and got that detail wrong. The designer of the ship produced design sketches that say it could indeed separate. See:...

    Looked on the Roll20 site, can't find any Star Trek or FASA listings. Without a campaign description, I don't know if I want to play. A link would be helpful.

    The FASA license did not exactly expire... FASA issued the first (purple cover) version of the TNG book, just about the time that Viacom bought Paramount, and Viacom decided that they wanted to have...

    Why is a Hospital Ship so heavily armed? By tradition, Hospital Ships are unarmed. Protection is afforded by escort ships and, of course, the heaviest shields available. Frankly, most FASA ships are...

    So far as I can reconstruct, when WotC bought out LUG, before they found out that the license was non-transferable, they had the LUG team start work on a D20 Trek game. When Decipher got the Trek...
