STA – Shackleton Expanse – Character Updates (July 16, 2019)

Some updates on the ideas for Characters for the Campaign. Added some secondary characters.

Still discussing which ship to use, may go with the U.S.S. Bellerophon – an Intrepid Class Starship, similar to Voyager but may rename it.

The U.S.S. Thunderchild – an Akira Class Starship, mid way between the Galaxy Class and the Intrepid Class in size is still in the running.

Other suggestions are to use either the Nova class (like the USS Equinox in Voyager) or the Luna class (the ship class that Captain Riker commands). However, it looks like the first Luna class becomes active in 2372, and the campaign starts in 2371.

Star Trek Adventures – Planning Session (July 7, 2019)

The attendees were Brent (GM), Jamie, Trevor, and Terry

  • Titan’s Vault Games is a good location for everyone
  • The second Sunday of each month should work well because it doesn’t interfere with the RPG Alliance Con, Fall-Con or Christmas.
  • The second Sunday in October (13th) lands on the Thanksgiving long weekend. Should we move it? The following Sunday is the RPG Alliance Con, so if we do move, it would be to October 6.
  • The second Sunday in November (10th) is on the Remembrance Day long weekend. The Sundays before and after look okay.
  • Individual schedules will need to be checked before we decide if we want to move those two Sundays and to where.
