A quick blog post to get feedback on our upcoming Star Trek opening credits monologue, and also on the name of our Star Trek campaign.

First, a bit of context on what I’m aiming for in the campaign.

We’re currently doing a Season 1 which is a prequal series of planet-of-the-week adventures using pregens. We’re aboard the U.S.S. Darius.

Later, maybe mid-year, we’ll move on to Season 2. We’ll do joint character creation using the full rules. Anyone who was in love with their pregen can ‘upgrade’ them into a long-term PC. 1st Thursdays will be the Star Trek main campaign with these characters. I’ll call this the ‘Alpha’ campaign. Then, we’ll additionally have opportunistic games which I’ll call ‘Omega’ missions that will feature below decks characters on your ship, or possibly characters on other starships in the sector. We’ll have 2-3 starships in Starfleet attached to Starbase 47 (also known as Vanguard). So focus will be on main crew and campaign but we’ll have other organized-play style games in the same universe. A PC in an Omega game (sidequest game) could be featured in an Alpha game as an NPC. If Omega game characters fail in a mission and are captured, the next Alpha game could be to save them.

The setting is the Taurus Reach, which is also called the Rimward Frontier. We include the names of the starship (the U.S.S. Darius and others to come) in each opening monologue, and if we switch to an Omega game with a different starship, then we have a different opening that references _that_ starship.

Or, we could just reference Starfleet having operations in the area.

Here are some examples. Happy to entertain other takes on what we should say on the opening.

For reference: Star Trek The Next Generation Opening Credits Monologue

“Space… The final frontier…
These are the voyages of the Starship Enterprise.
Its continuing mission:
To explore strange new worlds…
To seek out new life and new civilizations…
To boldly go where no one has gone before!”

Here’s some possibilities for us.

Star Trek Adventures Concept 1 (Campaign Name: ‘Star Trek Darius’):

“Space… The final frontier…
These are the voyages of the Starship Darius.
Its continuing mission:

Star Trek Adventures Candidate 2 (Campaign Name: ‘Star Trek Taurus Reach’):

“Space… The final frontier…
These are the chronicles of Starfleet in the Taurus Reach.
Our continuing mission:
To explore strange new worlds…
To seek out new life and new civilizations…
To boldly go where no one has gone before!”

Star Trek Adventures Candidate 3 (Campaign Name: ‘Star Trek Rimward Frontier’ or ‘Star Trek Frontier’; maybe Season 2’s ship is named the U.S.S. Frontier):

“Space… The final frontier…
These are the tales of Starfleet in the Rimward Frontier.
Our continuing mission:
To explore strange new worlds…
To seek out new life and new civilizations…
To boldly go where no one has gone before!”

Star Trek Adventures Candidate 4 (Campaign Name: ‘Star Trek Vanguard’):

“Space… The final frontier…
These are the tales of Starfleet in the vanguard of Federation space.
Our continuing mission:
To explore strange new worlds…
To seek out new life and new civilizations…
To boldly go where no one has gone before!”
