Actual Play – Star Trek pitch session (11/18/2012)

GM: Leonard Balsera
Players: Eric Fattig, Rick Kesweder, and Sean Nittner

We jammed for a few hours combining elements of TOS, TNG, and DS9 and came up with our own pitch for a Star Trek game. It’s a more desperate world than most Star Trek shows and it’s one where the 5 year mission is really clear. We’ll be on the Enterprise, Starfleet’s flagship, trekking around the universe because god damn it, the Federation needs us to. Here’s the pitch:

“In the space opera show Star Trek, the characters are members of a multi-species coalition called Starfleet and crew members of its flagship, the USS Enterprise. They explore space and evaluate the benefit of the intergalactic phenomena and species they encounter, in the hopes of strengthening the United Federation of Planets in their struggle against the older, more advanced Romulan Empire. Rated PG-13 for violence, suggestive situations, and some strong language.”

We’re making a new Star Trek, one of our own vision, as though none of the shows ever existed. We’re charting unknown territory. I can’t wait!

  1. “Our five-year mission, to explore strange new worlds, act like colonialist bastards, and hope everyone buys the justification.”

    Hey, at least our show is upfront about it… 🙂

    1. Hey Morgan. We’re home brewing it. Damn, I’d love to have you in a game but we’re capped at 3. Next time though, if you’re up for online games, you’re on my list!
