I've been thinking about doing something like The Seige of AR-558 from DS9, which was about the reality of war. If you've ever played one of my missions, you'll probably know that I don't like to do combat missions. It's mostly because, besides my stories not needing lots of combat, if you do it wrong, the mission becomes a boring grinder.

With all these wars Cryptic started and forgot about, I figured why not show that they still exist. I'm thinking maybe Voth, since they're pretty recent but still put aside for Undine. And they have guns to shoot, compared to Tholians and Undine.

Something that I've looked at from time to time (don't have the patience ever to see any of it through)...are the writing generators that Seventh Sanctum has - and - putting a Trek spin on them.
Willard the Rat, Klingon, Sci (60), U.S.S. Tong Vey, Geneva Command Battlecruiser (FT6), Inner Circle
Meena, Ferasan, Tac (60), I.K.S. vagh SuD bas, B'rel Retrofit Bird-of-Prey (T5U), Ho'ragh
[WIP] No-Fleet, T5U B'rel Retrofit Build

I just put a new mission into production, which I'm calling The Forgotten Battle:

Far away from the front lines of the most recent conflict, the wars rage on. The stories of victories and sacrifices in the Dyson Sphere and Fluidic Space will forever be told, but what about the battles that no one will remember?

And it's finished.

Congrats!

When I was working in the foundry I was working on an intertwining FED/KDF serie where momentarily only 2 of 6 are published (both fed). Why not create two missions where you actually play both sides of the same story?

*Allergic reaction* I don't play KDF. :O

Edit: Since this one is finished, I need more new ideas! Fuel my insatiable need to build missions!

Well, let's see. One thing that I've always pondered in Star Trek is the "Where are they now?" angle. There's dozens of races we see once and never again. Some of which were a lot more interesting than others. One of my personal favorites was Isabella's race. It seems like the sort of race Starfleet would want to keep in touch with. Did they? That race had a very unusual way of interacting with humanoids....
HAIL HYDRA!

I made a few foundry missions myself a while ago, however, the latest idea I've had has gone nowhere.

Quite simply: making a Dyson Sphere map.

Do you think you'd be able to somehow create a mission taking place inside a Dyson Sphere?

I have had a couple ideas of how a story could work where the Dyson Sphere wouldn't have to look exactly like in game, but I never really got it to work up to the standard I would want to see, and I don't want to take the time it takes to make it look right. I tried making one that had been assimilated by the Borg, where the "ground" was a whole lot of Borg cube objects, but the object limit got in the way of it working well enough.

Another idea was where the Breen found one without anyone knowing a totally redid it's environment, making it habitable to Breen without those refridgeration suits.

Or perhaps one with the Dominion building a Dyson Sphere of their own? After all, the Gamma Quadrant as a whole must have the resources. The Dyson Sphere built by the Dominion wouldn't be filled with Dyson tech, but it'd be an interesting object to base a story on.

Just a few ideas...

You think you're safe while you're at warp captain?

Indeed I did, thanks for mentioning it. I have an idea I may not get around to. A story based on the glitch where randomly generated officers speak to you instead of your bridge crew. Perhaps it could be reviewed that the unknown bridge officer is infact all in the players head. A projection by an alien power or something. Y'know like the inner light or one of those wired voyager episodes.
Play more STO Foundry! (You can thank me later.)
