Star Trek Mirror Universe game: Gauging Interest

Hey all.

Who would be interested in a Star Trek game set in the Mirror Universe?

For the Trekkers among us, you know of which I speak. For the non-Trekkers, several of the Trek series had episodes that took place in the Mirror Universe, a dark reflection of the peace-and-goodwill regular Trek universe. In the Mirror Universe, the Federation is the Terran Empire. Rather than being driven by the notions of peaceful contact and exploring the galaxy, in the Mirror Universe the driving forces are greed, ambition, and the desire to conquer and subjugate new races and worlds.

I am envisioning this game as a chance for you to let out your inner naughty person. Just as our previous Trek games at the Inn have had people playing the denizens of the Federation, embodying its noblest and best values, so this game will let you play a member of the Empire, and give you the opportunity to be a bad guy. Maybe you'll want to take a well-established and known Trek character of yours and make his/her Mirror Universe counterpart. Maybe you'll want to make a new character that you can be eeee-vil with, leaving the virtue of your existing character intact.

Either way, or if you have another idea, I am just gauging interest for now, seeing how many might want to climb aboard.

So comment away, and let's see if this is something we can run with.

Thanks!

-Duncan

I'm interested!

I'd be delighted to join!

I've always wanted to play a game like this, Star Trek style, being a big fan of TNG and TOS; however, I know virtually nothing of the other series beyond their basic premise and cast, putting me at a disadvantage with the mirror universe. Still, I am more than willing to scour Memory Alpha to get the grit on it all. I am also willing to download the appropriate PDFs; which ones would I need?

That, and is Star Trek RPG similar to any of DnD, WoD, or True20? Sorry if it feels like I'm babbling- but I hope this guages more interest!

No rulebooks :)

I-Binary, this would be a freeform game. Pure storytelling. You'd come up with a character, bio, background, any info you feel is relevant. But there would be no stats or numbers to crunch. I'd unfold the overarching story, reveal the main plot points as we go, and you would respond as your character, filling in your own bits of the story as we go. It's a very organic form of gaming; the tales that the characters tell grow the story as much as the main points that I'd come up with.

Check out the free-form section of the forum for some examples.

Woooww

That sounds like a lot of fun. Alrighty, I'm on board. I'll check back for updates on things such as timeline- actually, I'll need a sample of our timeline for my research and character creation. Hope it's no trouble!

Ooo- freeform gaming, here we go!

O' Captain, my captain...

... I'd be happy to join your crew... or stow away on your ship with the intent of hijacking it and, with the help of the ship's awesome weaponry and your mutinous crew, capture a quadrant of my own and install myself as The Exalted Emperor Eolicus; Grand Poobah and Chief Warmonger of the Wicki-Woo-Woo!!!!!

MUUUUWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

Or... you know.... I could play an engineer or sump'n....

****INFO LINKS****

Here are some links if you need or want to read up on Trek's Mirror Universe, sometimes called The Looking Glass.

Memory Alpha
Memory Beta
Wikipedia
(Ok, sue me, I forgot how to make them an actual clickable link. Go forth and copy/paste. )

Don't worry about following the canon timeline. We're going to have a fun adventure without the almighty "keeping it canon". If we stray, lightning bolts from above shall not strike us.


Made them links for you - Alacrity

question...

So are we going to be crewing a large starship, or are we going to be on a smaller ship, or something else?

Thanks!

...for the assist, Alacrity!

Padre, I had this idea yesterday-hehe. I'm giving it a few days to see how many are interested before I begin actual story construction. I have a vague idea, but wanted to see how much interest gets generated before I put on the thinking cap and start cranking out verbage.

Cool :)

Would be glad to have you, Astrid. In the episodes, the doctors have also been the "torture specialists". Some of them work to squeeze the maximum amount of agony out of disciplinary devices while still keeping the subject alive.
