# 1 Idea to Improve Risa System
04-17-2010, 10:42 AM
Well I went to Risa and apart from a nice view and walking around there is nothing to do!

So what should cryptic do so they can make it interesting?

  • a Ktarian mini game (maybe exclusive for Risa) (as seen in the TNG episode "The Game")
  • a vendor and a tailor who sell unique items (like special food and bath clothing we can wear on Risa)
  • some NPC's with quests which took place on Risa
  • Horga'hn's (very important! and nooo dont even think about the C-Store again... ) these wood statue's are literally THE symbol for Risa (would be very nice, if we could buy them at a Risa vendor as a souvenir, to put them on a Display after our vacation)
  • for a little more recognition / optical detail: put the Risa Logo (created by Geoffrey Mandel) on some things (first showed in the VOY episode "Inside Man" on a towel, then as a color version in the Star Trek: Star Charts)
  • make the Risa System more canon, it needs two suns like in this picture, and two moons
  • maybe T-Shirts that have slogans/ Horga'hn logos on them from Risa for casual clothing
  • If User Generated Content is possible in the future, then make it accessible on Risa (the planet known for its freedom, creativity, and relaxation)
  • put in some civilian ships in the orbit of Risa, so that it looks more visited
  • if the game engine and dev time support it, maybe add activites like surfing, fishing, boating, scuba diving, a dancing mini game, or frisbee
  • a buff (maybe called: rested) we get, for staying a certain time (maybe 30 minutes) on the planet, as an example: that buff could give us a little bonus on our health regeneration for one or two hours
  • the commoditie broker Melangogg could sell Weather Control Systems too (which are very popular on Risa)

How to make Risa more visited?

I been advocating for sometime that Risa as well as other worlds like Vulcan and Andoria have mission / quest NPCs there and giving out missions. That would get people to travel there more, than just roleplaying.

Second, more zones within Risa than just the island beach resort. Perhaps and old style MMO Dungeon, with rare drops. After all, there were natives on Risa before it became a resort planet, and surely there is more of their past yet to be revealed.

When Captain Picard went to Risa he ended up getting caught up in having to save reality as we know it. That is what the game lacks, it's too predictable, you go to risa and theres nothing there to do, ya it looks nice, but aside from that, nothing.

ok - so how about constructive feedback and ideas instead?

Well most of my ideas wouldnt pass the PG13 game ratings, after all Risa is supposed to be an adult vacation planet... But even something simple like put a couple NPC quest givers, or make it a breadcrumb waypoint on a longer mission thread.

If they put minigames into STO - instead of press F 5 times - then I would love to see an episode about "The Game" from the ST:NG episode of the same name.

i would imagine that most of the ideas that anyone has floating round in their noggin would be adult in theme as mentioned above. A lot of these Non mission zones seem to be geared towards RP but i would imagine even an RP'er would have trouble occupying their time doing anything other then CYber Sunbathing. Perhaps they could have some quests to do with the weather control system being sabotaged by a disgruntled Klingon getting jealous about his trill mate fllirting with people or something?

quest providers, crafting, BO trainer, games,...anything.


Risa, Vulcan, Andoria....etc.


I'm just hoping there are plans soon to include stuff. I'm sure there is, it's just in the huge list that they are working on already.

Risa needs naked women/men/other...but I guess the 24th Century is just as sexually hung up as we are

Would be good to see nudity in an MMO as just another option for mature players. Of course we would have to ride the wave of MMO streakers for years

Risa is Star Trek's version of Las Vegas. So why not have each mini-game developed be playable in a "casino" setting just beyond the beach? This would bring some things to do when on Risa. A mission could be placed there as well, but for general visiting, Risa could be the place to go to relax and play a game of Dabo, Tr-dimensional chess, etc. Do some gambling with your credits!

Nude women or adult-themed stuff won't happen. This is a game for all ages. If a holodeck is brought into the game as requested, maybe there could also be a holodeck to play out Dixon Hill scenarios or something.
