I'd rather do Captain Proton as an episode. I've pitched it before, we could do it all in B&W.

YES! I agree completely!

If you gave us Evil Robot combat pets as a mission reward...

Yeah. That would be just awesome.

You could also do a whole series of holodeck missions; "[Player name], Secret Agent", Captain Proton, and similar stuff. Maybe a good Dixon Hill, and maybe a little Shakespeare? Because Captain Picard has great taste.

Also, if we had a Dr. Chaotica laugh emote...

Will we ever see a set of episodes again, or has that become ancient history now?

I always hoped you could add little holodeck adventures like Captain Proton or Dixon Hill. It wouldn't even need to be big stories, just a little distraction.

I would looooovvvveee to get a series of holodeck 'missions' For one, it would be something that is entirely optional and can be accessed from either a location with a holodeck (like say your ship or SFA, heck even Bajor). For another, this could have its assets added to the foundry. Can you imagine the fun that could come from that?

Also imagine if you will a dixon hill set being used as a potential PvP map, street to street fighting (ok fine it would be ray guns in a 50's enviroment, but still)

And I completely proposed the 'noir' filter before. Just imagine playing a mission in B&W or even a Sepia tone.

CAPTAIN PROTON TO THE RESCUE!

Although I hate the oldskool scifi from the 50s and 60s, since it was still horribly primitive in those days, Tom Paris as Capt. Proton was quite entertaining. If they make such a one off episode it just HAS to have Chaotica in it as the bad guy. Remember he would be back.

While I'd love to see captain proton stuff I'd generally rather see some of the BASIC canon stuff in the game first... like the First Contact phaser rifles, or generally the phaser weapons from the late Tng era... (without blue stuff, correctly shaped and mark XI-XII^^)

No, it would have to be a pretty substantial thing. Think of all of the assets that would have to be made for it. If we're investing that much into something, it would have to be a big deal. Something like an event, or a big part of a season release.

Doing other Holodeck adventures would be equally expensive. Think about Dixon Hill, or Sherlock Holmes. There is almost nothing in the game that could be reused in such a mission. That's the problem.

Which sadly means we probably wont get it. I suppose we could see a FE where the holodeck goes wrong as that is a standard Trek story but it does not fit the current story being told and its not like you are every likely to build a season around a holodeck mishap.

Maybe that kind of thing should be built into events, like the winter or summer one? Instead of it all being Q, its going into a holodeck instead. Then it can be built up over time?
