I'm making a mission where the player revisits a planet first visited in ENT. I want to make the player read Archer's starlogs about the original mission while en route to the planet.
I'm planning on using a ship costume in the dialog boxes, rather than recreating a likeness of Archer. However, much of the dialogue that follows is from the character of Archer, and it's made up by me.
I'm sorry guys, however, my statement there is incorrect. I've been informed that we're not allowing the appearance of characters from the shows in The Foundry. Likeness/copyright issues make this very difficult to allow, and we need to go with the, "Reference is ok, physical appearance is not ok," in order to comply with the rules we're being given.
I'm sorry to have mislead you all, and I'll go back and edit that post so I don't confuse anyone else.
I'd be very curious what would be made of my mission. I have an alternate timeline ship turn up.
There's a reference to Worf dying, to Data getting disassembled, to Picard being a lowly astrometrics guy like he was in "Tapestry." In my mind, that's the very definition of what the EULA is enabling us to do. None of the characters show up but you get references from NEW characters about characters in the IP.
I went heavy on that for this outing but wthout some of that, I'd dispute whether it's even a Star Trek mission. I mean, I have one coming up where people talk about World War III and the guy who was a brutal fascist on Earth in the years prior to First Contact. (The guy showed up on TOS and Enterprise.) I'm not using that character but I have some humans who left earth in cryogenic stasis (ala Khan) to get away from that. Surely I can reference that the guy existed and have somebody quote him.
