So, when I started playing this game about 6-7 months ago...I started kicking around the idea/head canon of dropping anime characters into this setting and it's been bouncing around my brain for weeks now.

So, here is what I have in my head.

Quote:
Premise: Q2 has decided to bring a little chaos to an already chaotic start to the 25th Century and so reaches across the infinite possibilities of reality and existence to draw together the strangest assortment of recruits and ship officers the Alpha and Beta Quadrants have ever seen.

May mercy be had on anyone and anything stupid enough to be in their path...
Anime & Characters I've been considering throwing in.

Quote:
Sailor Moon, The Sailor Senshi, Luna, Diana, and Artemis (Bijusho Senshi Sailor Moon)

Sousuke Sagara, Kaname Chidori, Teletha Testarossa (Full Metal Panic)

Hikaru, Umi, and Fuu (Magic Knight Rayearth)

Riot Force 6 / Special Duty Section 6 (Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha)

Lina Inverse & Company (Slayers)

Hibiki, Dita, Jura, Meia (Vandread, complete with their machines)

Rushuna Tendou (Grenadier)

Eclair and Lumiere (Kiddy Grade)

KOS-MOS (Xenosaga...with a complete weapons loadout)
I got a few others in mind but figured to just test the water if this would be a welcome idea? Feedback please!

I cannot read the phrase "head canon" without thinking about Gunther Hermann's sadly unfulfilled lifelong dream.

Otherwise, I will simply say that the idea of a bunch of anime characters (some of which I like in the context of their own shows) running around in Trek is not one I find terribly exciting. Sober, serious-minded Trek seems a poor match for the screaming, juvenile sensibilities of most anime.

That could get weird considering I've been naming my ships after them. >.<

If these ideas can be confined to a single mission on the fleet starbase holodeck, that would be cool.

Perhaps something else could be done with this idea: Have a fan convention within Star Trek Online. Open up Utopia Planetia, have multiple contests running with prizes offered by the Devs, prominent fleets, rich kids, etc., and have this awesome 3-day social event running where people can dress up their character as members of other shows, anime, etc.

I.... I.... I honestly don't know what to think.

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

In response, I present to you this gem of the Internet mid - late 90's.

I saw you in that thread and loved it as at the time I had a Cruiser I named USS Raising Heart.

First...this would actually follow the group from Vega Colony throughout to the current season.

Otherwise I love the other idea. ^_^ Anime Con in STO!

It's okay. ^_^ I expected this reaction.

An anime-styled Trek series = yes, I'm on board with that.






Random anime characters appearing in the Trek universe (especially Sailor Moon type "stuff") for the sake of having a random anime character orgy in the Trek universe = Hell no. WTF?

I always thought the cast of FMP could fit into Trek myself. Hell I named one of my cruisers the Tuatha de Danaan.

LOL at Grenadier. I didn't know anyone else even saw that series. Any time I bring it up people are always like "Wtf anime is that??" Not sure if Rushuna would completely fit...but her ideals do line up with the Federation. Might be workable.

I love Slayers to death, but I'm not sure how well they would work in Trek. Although I do admit to wanting to Dragon Slave Hakeev right in his stupid face. >.>;;

Kiddy Grade could fit well I'd say. Also Eclair in a Starfleet uniform? Yesplz.

KOS-MOS would work, similarities to Data and all that jazz. The android part, not the flying death machine part lol.

I'm a sucker for cross overs though. Would be interested to see what you come up with for sure.

LOL, there is a Trek manga.

Also, as I noted in my response it has been done well before. Second, there is another series that is a character orgy; especially in the 3rd Entry which could have it's climax chapters entitled (and quoted from the fanfic itself) "Super Robot Wars: Spaceship Edition" as nearly EVERYONE shows up to defend the Multiverse from General Thrawn's experiment in Interdimensional Engines gone horribly awry.


EDIT: Also aware that there is a server outage somewhat so let's consider this time to get more feedback! ^_^
