Star Trek: The Fallen Star Q&A

Let me just open this up with a placeholder of a post for editing...

*drools*

Ah! I have those... Haven't looked at them in a while but, yeah, I love me some deckplans. Aaaaaaand the Steamrunner class is one of my favorite Federation designs.

I need to come up with a character or three for my department.

Stadate?

I am a bit confused. People have been posting birthdates as 23XX, and the opening post says that the Stardate is 2634.XX.XX.

Is this simply a case of a misplaced number? If so, I need to and change my character's birthdate.

 

Thanks

The opening post has a typo.  The date is 2364, aka right around the end of season one/start of season two of Star Trek: the Next Generation.

A matter of clarification

On the link I posted above, it makes a Steamrunner class ship look almost like an aircraft carrier, with 10 Peregrine Class fighters on Deck 6, along with a Runnabout and a large smattering of Type 11, 9, 7, and 6 shuttles.  While over here it doesn't mention anything about a flight deck.  I was curious on how the Hexatris is outfitted.  Either or is fine with the Engineer, would make the Flight Control officer have a little more duty of all the shuttles and fighters are flying around though.  Just curious.

Personally...

... I don't think that a Steamrunner with a standard crew compliment could support 10 fighters along with the various shuttles and such. There would have to be concessions made in other departments to make it work (paring down Science to a minimum, ditching labs in favor of expanded flight ops and personnel, etc). That might work for a patrol/escort situation, of course, but I think the Hexatris is more in the role of support and science platforms. I'd imagine she's more in line with one of the ACTD layouts.

Edit: From what I can tell, that spot on deck 6 where the fighters are housed in the deckplans you posted would be where cargo bay 2 is located on a standard Steamrunner.

Fair enough

I don't know anything about actual military, seems like 10 pilots could easily be supported by the other 200+ crewmembers.  But I think you're right, it would totally change the mission.

Thank you! Was very confusing!

Much appreciated.

Well that's embarrassing

I could have sworn I had the correct date when I typed that

A few bits of information

First thing, Silent Pluto is not orbiting Pluto

The name is more in regards to the station's remote location relatively close to the edge of the galaxy in the typhon (I think that's the name... I'll check the map later...) region.

Secondly, engineering and science is significantly larger on the Hexatris than typical steamrunner vessels. It's fighter allocation is probably reduced to 2/3, maybe even half normal capacity for the additional labs, one of which being an engineering lab for making adjustments to prototype shuttles and equipment (good to do small scale tests before increasing scale after all)

Once I check what we're at in terms of the roster, we might be good to get started and if so I'll see if I can kick us off this weekend.

Hooray!

I'll do my best to get Nizrri's roster entry closer to finished in the next day or so. A good deal of the "crucial" information is there, of course, but I've got some history and such to work on.

Wow you went all out! I figured with 200+ people on the ship is bring in NPC's as I needed them. How did you figure out how many to make? How many officers, etc.
