    I tend to agree that even though it modifies a lot of skills it is probably within the intention of the designers.

    So do you all think that the Ops EP skills are included in those modified...
  2. "Cross Trained" Professional Ability - what skills does it modify?

    The Operations Manual presents the "Cross-Trained" skill under the Ops profession. It says:

    I'm not a tough guy or anything, but I've done jiu-jitsu and judo for several years and even though there are competition rules the skills are more than useful in a real combat situation. I was...

    Athletics as a combat skill

    The DS9 book shows both Sisko and Dax as having wrestling as a specialization under Athletics. That would lead me to believe you could use Athletics to simulate a grappling skill in combat. Does...

    I figured that someone would point out the nature of the mission (understaffed, chasing the Maquis) as a disqualifying factor. That's totally reasonable, but it would still stand to reason that a...

    I know this topic is nearly dead, but I'm still churning through Voyager and an episode shed some light. There's an episode late in the 5th season where 7of9 is considering crewman to go on her...

    Got mine too. The sample characters seem very "rules-lite" to me. I'd really like to see the character generation rules expecially going beyond starting cadets to see what the characters look like...

    Space Science Specializations

    Two quick questions about potential adjustments/interpretations to the Space Science skill.

    1 - With respect to Navigations and such, does it make sense to have specializations in both...

    As a side note, I'm working my way through Voyager season 3 and there almost always seems to be a red-shirted command officer at Mission Ops. Not sure what that really means, unless a red-shirted...

    I can see the value of the Code disadvantage when it comes to a more concrete way of adjudicating renown. If Kirk goes against the rules he doesn't suffer, but Picard would because his respect is...
