I am working on a sequel to a DOff mission myself. There is a cluster DOff mission Establish Listening post in..... My DOff mission is The Rolor Nebula Incident, where the True Way discovers your listening post and kidnaps your crew, and threatens to execute them. Starfleet sends you in to get your people before the deadline.

Didn't you know? "Military intelligence" is always a contradiction in terms.

I'll have to check out the suggested ones. If anyone sees a doff mission that really needs making into a foundry mission, post it up and after my current project I think I may take a bash at it.

I have to say, a lot of the Klingon ones look interesting to do.

Might be fun to find out what kind of terraforming units the Romulans are building with chroniton torpedo plans...

Agreed.

Fellow STO Foundry authors, please consider tagging mission titles (based of DOff mission concepts) as:

DOff mission: (mission name)


That key naming convention might help players to find those missions.

Good idea.
Duty Officer Assignment: might be better though, simply because that's what Onlyslightlybent already put in the titles of his/her two. Unless Onlyslightlybent's around at the moment and willing to change those two.

I've sometimes thought that a simple "Entertain Foreign Dignitaries" would be a good starting point. The dignitaries could be whoever/whatever you like, well-known Star Trek races with baggage or some unknown aliens you made up yourself; you could send any combination of interesting DOffs you like - a Gorn, the Orion Hologram (you DO need an Entertainer for that and she's an Entertainer...), the Breen chap, Dr. Sibak... and it could go wrong in any number of ways, from serious to slapstick - cultural misunderstandings, accidental poisoning, non-accidental poisoning, really badly timed outbreak of space-madness... Infinite screw-ups in infinite combinations

Unfortunately the character limit on mission titles (32 chars, IIRC) is way too short to support titles named directly after most DOff assignments.

For the same reason, to conserve characters maybe the tag should just be [DOff], in the same vein as the [Rom] tag used by some authors to identify missions designed for Romulan Republic toons (e.g. my getting-close-to-completion [Rom] Valley of the Shadow III).

The KDF spotlight "Grapok in the General's Lung" is, if you catch the hints, half of the plot revolves around the fallout from a "Host Black Market Contacts" DOFF spectacular-critical failure.
