# 1 Klingon PVE Missions
10-15-2010, 03:40 PM
Just wanted to start a thread in here to see what you guys might want to see in the way of KDF PVE missions...

If you could make the perfect KDF mission, what would you make?

I would have a mission where you needed to use your cloak to sneak past a large enemy fleet or defense and take out strategic facilities, then get out of there with out being detected. Some sabotage and reconnaissance mission to really play to the strength of the cloak would be cool.

1) Gorn Orion And Nausicain Planets FUNCTIONAL or not
2) Do something with that whole Felknr storyline. Don't you dare leave us hanging.
3) Have at least SOME story about either Gorn, Orion or Nausicain resistance to KDF rule. SOmeone has to be mad.
4) Many storylines about a stalemate developing with the romulans (you kind of have to start to do that if you ever want to have a romulan faction because the kdf should be able to roll right over them).

These are good ideas, it would be nice to see some mission that include Gorn, Nausicaan, Orion, and Lethean locales. Maybe these are colonies, outposts, military stations etc. It would be good for immersion to beam down to a planet/station and have it populated primarily by one kind of KDF race (kind of like Defera).

i have this HUGE idea in my head:


you walk up to those 2 story tellers outside of the big hall on Quonos and they tell you pretty much the story of "The path to 2409" or that STO Book you guys made, just from a pure Klingon perspective, and while they tell you the Story you actually get to PLAY it. As in imagining it or as a Flashback kind of thing.

This would give the answers to why there even is a War between Fed's and KDF (i know when the game came out that was one of the most asked questions by my friends) and also give you the unique perspective of the Klingon side of things.

Also the reason why Gorn, Orions and Nausicans are part of the KDF now... (i believe the Gorn homeworld was invaded or something? havent realy all the info yet, if i would ever do this myself with UGC i have a lot of reading to do first ^^ ).


...of course Klingons are known to exegerate in their Storytelling which means more enemies to kill ^^

I have a few.

One mission could have the KDF PCs raid a Romulan operation (perhaps in Gamma Orionis, since we know they have ships skulking there) to obtain/steal thier research on anti-Undine medication in preparation to an impeding Anti-Undine offensive.

Then Klingons PCs could be put in charge of that anti-Undine mission where they discover a locale where the people the Undine have been replacing are emprisoned. So, the KDF PCs go in and spring those people out; at the same time perhaps identifying amongst the prisoners people that should not be prisoners, thus hinting at the identies of Undine infiltrators.

And amongst those is Akira Sulu! The Sulu in the STF wasn't Sulu, but actually Undine imposter Sulu! Meaning that there could be a way to bring him back to Earth Spacedock (because shoving Sulu out into an STF and replacing him with that nobody Commander Winters was the Worst. Idea. Ever. Please fix it).

What could follow up next could be a mission based off Akira Sulu's successful escape from KDF imprisonment due to Section 31 operatives springing him out to learn what intel he might have on the Undine. The KDF PCs could follow after them and end up confronting a squadron lead by U.S.S. Kirk serving as their main antagonist while Franklin Drake and his subodinates successfully spirit Sulu away - it doesn't end up being a victory for the KDF PCs there, but it's not like B'vat hasn't done the same to Fed PCs, and KDF PCs being confronted by Security Chief Miral Paris could be interesting.

Another perhaps idea worthy of pursuit would be to have the KDF PCs investigate on one of the of the highly-placed Undine infiltrators they identified from amongst the prisoners and attempt to oust him from his position of power, perhaps with the assistance of the genuine article at thier side.

I also think it would be nice to see more thematically themed mission putting weight on the new disparity between the races comprising the KDF. Perhaps PCs could interact with Nausicaans as the latter work to do piracy to disrupt the Federation's supply lines. Perhaps the PCs could also interact with the Orions, their smuggling runs and slavery rings to showcase thier interaction with that race furthermore (we've never seen Melanie Di'an either - might be nice to have that figure manifest actively) and there's of course also the matter of the Gorn and how they're coping with their new status alongside the Klingon and their royalty answering to another power - any friction could help create stories along those lines.

Also, the Fed missions on the Romulan front ended with the Swords of Sharien being revealed as Borgified Mogai Escorts - an offshoot story of the Borg-modified Star Trek 2009 Narada. After the big incident the klingons (Worf included) had with the Narada it seems doubtful that the Klingons would go and leave such an issue alone (and I also highly doubt the Romulans research in the matter is over, especially with one of the Season 2 missions in Gamma Orionis featuring them - and the Iconians at the very end).

That's all for now. Besides, I want to keep some of my ideas for when the UGC can come out. However, only you, Gozer, have the power to help Sulu return to Admiral Quinn's office! (I'm dead serious)

The carriers don't cloak, and likely neither will all of the Gorn/Naussican/Orion ships, so making stealth-mandatory missions probably wouldn't work.

Great ideas Dakota and Staran. I especially like Staran's #3. Some great RP potential there for G, O, or N KDF players who may have to go up against their own kind.

As for a reply to Gozer...

I myself am new to the KDF, four characters with various Lt. Cmdr ranks, so I haven't played through all the missions that exist yet (but my understanding is that there aren't many anyway... ) so I hope I don't step on what's already there, but here goes...

1) Playing a Klingon... I don't know much about the KDF. I mean I'm mostly familiar with TOS and early TNG/DS9 and what's been in the movies. I have to admit I'm ignorant to the Glorious Klingon History. So I guess I would like missions that explored being a Klingon.

2) A mission that explains why do TNG Klings have skull ridges, but TOS ones do not?

3) Visit/Explore the Klingon Ice Prison Planet (the name escapes me). Maybe there's an fugitive we have to re-capture. Maybe there was some sort of local overthrow of the guards and we have to return order with an iron fist. The later would give opportunity/excuse to fight against many various races all in one mission including named games races, and generic "aliens".

4) Fed spies have captured some new Klingon cloak tech and you've got to stop them and get it back!

5) Help/Defend KDF Scientists doing Glommer Research, that leads to player being able to breed Glommers.

6) Mission Arc: New Planet. Have a planet on the outskirts of the Klingon Space, it can be an old/small Fed or Romulan colony, or make up a new race. Our Captain gets involved with the "assimilation" of this planet into the Klingon Empire. You can start the story line at several points: either at the beginning where we're actually part of the initial fighting to overthrow whatever local government/defenses are there; perhaps in the middle where the system has already been annexed and you just have to go down and "Explain" things to the locals, or clean-up - The already in place KDF garrison needs some assistance with this one town...

More than anything I want to see PvE missions against the Romulans. There is nothing that will get you in to Sto-vo-kor better than dying gloriously against those Romulan back stabbers!

In addition I would love to see any missions the flesh out the developments that lead to War between the Gorn and Klingons and eventually the Federation and the Klingons. If I get more time I will post more in depth on both of these.
