    Herolab - What would you like to see in an UNOFFICIAL dataset?

    Hello all!

    As a fan of both Star Trek Adventures and Herolab (HL going forward), I asked and was given permission to do a UNOFFICIAL dataset for folks to use. As a developer (in my day job as well as messing around in HL) I know what I would like to see, but I would like to know what you, the potential user, would like to see as well. What's essential, what's ok to have, or what you don't want. I would like to know it all.

    A few of caveats:
    1) I am a programmer as my day job with sometimes hectic schedules.
    2) Family life takes precedent to development time (and with wife and three teens in house, that can be just as hectic as work life. )
    3) I'm doing this as an opportunity to give back to the gaming community for way too many years of enjoyment.
    4) Users would need, as per HL, access to the Authoring Kit in order to run the dataset in full (non-demo) mode.

    My current plan is to tackle thing in this order:
    1) Main Character Lifepath - I'm not sure if HL would support the random chart rolls, so it would be up to the user to simply roll on a table (perhaps with the built-in roller) and select the resulting option.
    2) Supporting Characters
    3) Starships
    4) Milestone character advancement

    Please let me know your thoughts, interest, etc..

    Thanks!
    Thomas C.

    Bit more progress...
    Name: USS Reliant, NCC-1864
    Ship Class: Miranda Class

    Scale: 4
    Power: 10
    Shields: 11
    Resistance: 4
    Systems: Comm 9, Computers 9, Engines 10, Sensors 9, Structure 11, Weapons 11
    Departments: Command 0, Conn 0, Engineering 0, Medicine 0, Science 0, Security 0

    Overview: During the mid to late 2260s the Federation saw increasing tensions with the Klingon Empire and many analysts thought that war was inevitable with QonoS. The design of the Miranda class began as a dual-purpose patrol and combat vessel designed specifically to counter Klingon designs, specifically recent refits of the D7 battle cruiser. A combined team of designers from Starfleet Tactical and the Starfleet Advanced Technologies Group began co-opting and adjusting technologies and systems from the upcoming Constitution class refit, producing a heavily armed attack vessel just as peace broke out between the Federation and the Empire in 2267. Production of six spaceframes occurred before further manufacturing was halted while a complete redesign was undertaken. In 2272, the Miranda development group had beaten the sword into a plowshare by redesigning nearly 70% of the internal volume of the starship, attempting to make the vessel into a science and survey ship. The result was a highly adaptable starship that continues to be in use nearly one hundred years since its introduction.
