The Deferi Feature Episode Series is a good choice I think.

*sneaks away*
Oi! Don't sneak away, watch and follow ;-) I'm going to need people's input for this lol.


So here's my main thoughts for new characters at the minute


T'Pell
A female Vulcan science officer, based roughly on the vulcan female in the character creator art work when you build a new science toon on the Fed side. She's a Federation idealist, still a great believe in the principles of exploration and seeking out new life and new civilizations. She's suffered in the past from Pa'nar Syndrome, causing her emotional controls to break down, she has received treatment since but it has left her open to exploring her emotions slightly more than most Vulcans.

Sarah White
Sarah is a Doctor by vocation, having initially trained with Starfleet Medical and served as a senior Doctor onboard the Enterprise-E. Although she'd never planned a career in the command track whilst serving on board the medical carrier Chicago the ship came under attack from a Klingon Bird of Prey which breached the bridge's hull in it's initial volley, and took out the ship's warp engines. As the highest ranking officer White took command of the vessel as it limped through the outskirts of Federation space. Upon arriving back at Deep Space K7 she was given permanent command of the ship and her crew.

Merl
A Caitian female who is equally adept as a field medic as she is a combat scientist. Part of a traditional large litter family on Cait she was the sole one to leave the planet for any length of time, dreaming of exploring the stars. She takes great pride in her ability to patch up her crewmates as they are injured on the battlefield. She can also manipulate the environment around her to catch her enemy off guard leaving them vulnerable to her more heavily armed colleagues.


Siyk
Siyk is a Rigellian male, an Engineer who has grown up playing in the engine rooms of Federation starships, from freighters through to the enormous Galaxy class cruisers. His parents, far from the spiritual people Rigelians are known for being were tech heads, living their lives always trying to squeeze every ounce of efficiency out of the ship. Siyk, whilst a master engineer, has recently become interested in his people's spiritual heritage and has started to explore this.

Three
A liberated Borg. Skilled in the art of immobilising and incapacitating his enemy through the use of engineering kits using the experience he retained from the collective. With little knowledge of his past he has decided to focus on his future and creating a galaxy where people can live safely.



Why these characters?


Simply put I have no female science officers, and no male engineers. Additionally these are all species I've not played before (with the exception of the Caitian who's always fun!) The caitian's feline instincts could be fun with the combination of science's perception boosting abilities and easy exposes, mixed with creative to make a nice healer.

Have just seen other people's responses - will read through them a bit more fully in the morning (it's late here!) keep 'em coming people. Mine are just my thoughts, nothing set in stone, though obvioiusly we'll be limited by what the character creator allows

Here's my suggestion:
Captain Serek: Vulcan male, middle aged (by Vulcan standards) with specialty as an engineer

I would say most likely Female. You have quite a few Male characters so going as female might give you a different perspective. Probably you female Vulcan Science officer if you are really into it or want to explore the vulcans. You have most of the other fun races already.

Here are my two Mains. Perhaps you would be interested in taking a similar approach?


My first character who is an idiot Trill Doctor. She is not very bright and cheated her way through Starfleet Medical. Likewise, I only used her with the Medic Kits but Leveled her without using any Skill Points. Once I had her at Max Level and played her for a while longer, I finally began to slowly give her the Skill Points under the guise that she happened to be the only viable candidate for Symbiote and was beginning to have its knowledge rub off on her.

***

My other Main Character is a Racist Engineer. Not just any Racist, but a Liberated Borg who hates Organics. I played her as mean and a general villain to Organic Races. She does not allow anyone on her crew that is one. There are only Borg, Holograms, Androids, and the like can be on her ship. She uses mechanical abilities such a Turrets, Mortars, and employs Combat Exocomps and Attack Hortas.

Um....huh?

Ok, so I let my wife make the final call!

The finalists were:

My Vulcan Science Officer
My Caitian Science Officer
We also played with some dual heritage characters, but they all felt a bit forced.


Ultimately we've come down with the Caitian Science officer - I'm a little dissapointed I don't get to play a new engineer, I really enjoyed my Trill, but it's all good! And kind of the point of this little experiment.


I'm going to roll a character up tonight (pictures to follow when the Gateway's back online)
The Vulcan science officer will be one of the initial bridge officers, and some of the other ideas here will round out the initial crew.

I'm going to start out in the NX Light Escort, I fancy the oberth, but to be honest this will probably be my last toonand I don't find the console to be that exciting that I'll use it in place of my red matter capacitor.

The first mission that she plays through will be the SS Azura 'Stranded in Space' mission. I always feel it's a good start to the war storyline and worthy of a play with any new character. I'll report back with the captain's logs in a few hours!

Not sure if you're soliciting input for Foundry missions to play, but there are a few Klingon-related missions I think you should consider; ajstoner's "Resolution" series, and alimac30's "City of the Polmar Ree."

I kind of am, but I'm not quite there yet




Anyone know if the Odyssey (fleet) uniforms clip on Caitian necks? I've been trying to find a uniform that doesn't, but to no success. ANy thoughts?

Completed my first mission last night. It's only stranded in space, but I got it all FRAPSed and just need to get it uploaded to Youtube, but as it's over 15 minutes it's proving tricky. Anyone got any advice? FRAPS produces huge files so it's taking forever
