STT Originals: Pitch Thread

Ben's comments on the recent Timelines Talks show included a request for pitches for new crew original to Timelines. These would be along the lines of Aviator Yar, Prince Bashir, etc.- crew that never appeared in Star Trek. To be a hit with players, they should have an excellent character concept, excellent art, and a decent blend of stats.

With those in mind, here are some suggestions:

-Protomorphosis Saru: a de-evolved version of the Discovery officer, reflecting the unusual stages of development of his species.

-Jazz Combo Kim: a version of Harry Kim if he had become a professional jazz clarinetist instead of a Starfleet officer (he was in the Julliard Youth Symphony, after all!).

-Tal Shiar Garak: what if, instead of forming a secret armada of ships with the Obsidian Order in 2371, the Tal Shiar and Obsidian Order merged? Fan favorite Garak becomes an even more fearsome spy when backed by TWO insidious secret police organizations!

-Emergency Hologram Lore: what if Soong, rather than Zimmerman, were the eccentric genius behind the EMH program?

-Apollo Program Archer: if Archer had access to the Enterprise-D's holodeck, would he have reenacted humanity's early space exploration successes?

    Gangster McCoy - what if he instead of Spock or Kirk got dressed up in an Iotian suit?

    Klingon Bashir - what if Julian joined Odo and Sisko to uncover the Klingon Changeling?

    TOS Uniform Tilly - what if she didn’t join Michael on the trip to the future and got assigned to the Enterprise?

    Admiral Chekov - he wouldn’t be nearly as old as McCoy in the 2360s (to the point where a current photo of Walter Koenig would work) and could look pretty darn good in a TNG S1/S2 admiral’s uniform.

    Psi-Cop Chekov has been suggested. I would absolutely go all out for Evil Chekhov. That would be great.

    All in the tradition of Prince Bashir and Chaplin Odo...

    Officer Kirk - Shatner during his TJ Hooker years

    Professor Picard - Professor X

    Quantum Archer - Archer as a temporal agent (kinda already exists with Humanoid Figure)

    Undead Burnham - Burnham as a zombie

    Psi-Cop Chekov - A telepathic version of Chekov

    Principal Quark - Quark as a school administrator rather than a bartender

    Bartender Jadzia

    Sisko “for hire”

    Oh my! Psy-Cop Chekov. Please and thank you!

    In that vein, would it be too much to ask for Star Trek meets Gargoyles cards?

  • We already have a STT Originals Quark, but what about a Quark in a Starfleet uniform?

    Just extending my thoughts with some potential traits...
  • To quote myself...
    I really want to see Prime Timeline Lorca. But... I'll either have to wait to see if they put him in an episode or the show goes off the air without him making an appearance.

    <A year and a half later...>

    Ben mentioned they haven't made a Timelines Original in a while. I happened to remember a certain one that I would like to see. For the record, I don't care if he looks like some Russian general or has long blonde hair with a thin wooden stick for no apparent reason or whatever else he might look like. :)

    In addition to Prime Lorca...

    Prisoner Janeway, from Orange is the New Black

    Librarian Odo, from The Librarians

    Guardian Number One, from The Librarians

    Barrister Scotty, from Loaded Weapon 1

    Crime Boss Kirk, also from Loaded Weapon 1

    Informant Guinan, also from Loaded Weapon 1

    Young Amanda Grayson, from Not Another Teen Movie

    Reading Advocate Geordie, from Reading Rainbow

    Temporal Agent Kurros, from Seinfeld (ok, this is a HUGE stretch)

    Investigator Archer, from NCIS New Orleans

    Alien Controlled Noonien Soong, Brent Spiner from Independence Day

    Board Game Enthusiast Wesley Crusher, from TableTop

    Marine Biologist Seven of Nine, from Psych

    Security Guard O'Brien, from a different episode of Psych

    Early 21st Century Humanity Observer Q2, from almost every episode of Psych (there's got to be a way to shorten that name)

    King Picard, from Robin Hood: Men in Tights

    Reading Rainbow La Forge is brilliant.

    That and unlike most things on this list (which I am 100% on board for all of them) WRG would most likely not need to worry about getting reading rainbow rights.

    My pitch would be for NASA Janeway, with the card art in the style of the 1980s blue astronaut uniforms. I imagine the NASA name and logo would be impossible to get the rights to use for a game like this, but a girl can dream...!

    220px-ChristaMcAuliffe.jpg

    Perhaps any NASA logos could be artfully covered with tools, scientific apparatus, or the like?

    Other ideas inspired by non-Trek roles:

    Resistance Leader T’Pol (Stargate SG-1)

    Detective O’Brien (Law Abiding Citizen)

    Lounge Singer Kirk (pick any 1970s talk/variety show)

    WWII Pilot Scotty (real life)

    Dr. Quark (Invisible Man)

    Diner Owner Jadzia (Becker)

    Desert Comber Tuvok (Spaceballs)

    Hacker Tuvok (SeaQuest DSV)

    Prisoner Neelix (Bad Santa)

    Lawyers Kirk and Odo (Boston Legal)

    Vampire Tucker (inspired by Stargate Atlantis)

    Therapist Worf (Castle)

    Mercenary Barclay (The A-Team)

    Teacher Seven (Boston Commons)

    I can't believe I forgot Mercenary Barclay!

    I had no idea that was Tim Russ in Spaceballs. I would absolutely LOVE to see one of those uniforms is the game as some devious human civilization.

    I forgot Terri Hatcher was in Becker. Put the Trill spots on her and that would be brilliant. :)

    Plenty of actual Canon Crew that will never get made. The 3 Timelines Talks hosts all want non-canon crew. I know it's hard to believe, but MANY other players don't want any non-canon crew. Just sayin'

    Many players didn't want Discovery or TAS, either. Lots of players do what crew for whom devs could not obtain the rights. That's just the way things go. There hasn't been a non-canon crew in a long while. It was brought up. Some folks want another non-canon crew. We may and may not get it. But this is where we can pitch ideas and dream. :)

    Love TAS / Disco and I'd love if WRG invested in Lower Decks for the future too (rather WRG make that occur). If it appeared on-screen in Trek I'm all about it.

    You guys can also pitch ideas for made-up ships too :)

  • As much as I would *love* to see a WWII biplane kicking the snot out of a Klingon warbird in arena, I think one reason some people want more STT originals is that, recently, it feels like WRG is scrapping the bottom of the barrel, character wise. Yes, there are a lot of cannon cards we'd all like to see, but there are also a lot of reasons they may never be seen. An original card, on the other hand, probably does not face as much restrictions to exist. And, thus, can give us interesting, colorful characters we would not see otherwise.

    As much as I would very much like a 'Charlie X' card, I'd settle for a 'Charles X' (professor x) card if it was at all possible. :blush:

  • It's always interesting when an actor appears on star trek as several characters. We get one crew in the game and not the others.

    That's pretty awesome. I would love to see something that came from a player make it into the game. I mean, if they could make a card from one of those pictures you've posted with Trek actors and keep you in as "background art" I would be all for it. Hell... I'd probably risk Tuesday packs for the first player to make it into the game. :)

    Academy Instructor Uhura (her future posting before ST6 intervened) could be interesting too.
