Pride and Pageantry
by SlothfulDragon

Synopsis: A beauty pageant is plagued by an undiscovered assailant and it's up to you to figure out who they are and why they're there.

Story > 4 / 5
Whole thing is a vendetta against tribbles? Awesome.
Was hoping I could see a final map with the winners of the pageant!
Maybe name the Klingon leader, give him a reason to hate tribbles so much. He just ended up being a nameless Klingon guy to me.

Look&Feel > 2 / 5
I went around Right on Risa and basically had to traverse the entire map in order to get to all the objectives. This could have been avoided by guiding the player a bit more, perhaps having more to do in between the waypoints. This is by far the worst aspect of this mission and made a lot of it painful.
The NPC on wander on the bridge had a few too many nodes, ended up on the captain's chair, etc. Tone that down some.
Rather organized vacationers on the Risean benches. Make it more organic there?
Liked the writing of the characters on Risa

Technical > 2.5 / 5
Shuttlecraft in cave floaks slightly.
Otherwise pretty standard stuff here.

Difficulty > 3 / 5
Fun, slightly tough battle at the mouth of the cave.

Overall Rating > 3 stars / 5
Interesting pageant assassination storyline doesn't take itself too seriously and is a fun romp, but is heavy affected by having to traverse the entire expanse of Risa's surface multiple times.
