I'm honored to have my mission featured! Thanks to everyone playing it! I know it's not perfect, but I sure enjoyed creating it.

Might want to move those enemies a little further away to avoid that.
I've tinkered around with this quite a bit... I realized that if I moved them any further away it would break up the pace of the mission, and it seemed to drag... I have had this problem on occasion, but for now I left it so it doesn't keep the player down and so it leaves them with a sense of urgency. It's a bummer that it removes the player from continuity for a few seconds on occasion, but I plan to keep tinkering with it when I have the time to get it just right.

I've actually been considering doing this mission from the Klingon perspective... I think it could be interesting to see how the Klingons may be dealing with this situation.

It is absolutely an homage...
I'm a big Trek nerd as many of us are, and I was recently watching some interviews on one of the Star Trek movies I recently bought and rewatched on bluray. They were talking about the TOS episode "Balance of Terror" and how Gene Roddenberry was trying to get the feel of submarine warfare. It inspired me. The USS Dallas isn't the only reference to THFRO in there, if you look hard enough!

Anyways, thanks for playing it! And big thanks to Cryptic for featuring it!

P.S. I loved the trailer, who do I need to thank for that?! It was really cool to see, and the one you guys did for the last spotlight was pretty epic also.

Cute mission, I liked it, specially the new Jupiter uniforms as Admeowral's tunics.

NX-01 in the Trailer destroying a Negh'Var.

//edit:

starts kinda slow-ish but the end is worth it!

Nice mission, if a little heavy on the exposition side.
After that it has a nice pace, and not too much filler-fluff flying.
Nice mix of space and ground combat too, with a nice big ending.
Good stuff.

Two nitpicks: "At least we learned some something" <-- extra "some", was in one of the texts on the bridge of the Exeter.
And the other one is quite common, the missing comma before the adress of the player.
"I owe you one Captain Jalax" is not the same as "I owe you one, Captain Jalax"
But like I said, those are nitpicks, and not too detriment to the overall enjoyment of the episode.

But I have to admit, I have yet to get into the foundry, so my talk is cheap indeed.
At any rate, Seancy8512, I'm looking forward to playing more foundry missions by you!

Thank you! People were telling me I had some grammar mistakes and such in there, but it's a daunting task to go through and find them. I always try to proof-read - I'm a writer by trade - but the Foundry doesn't make it easy because you have to go through it dialog box by dialog box. Even so, I'll still miss some from time to time.

If it's cool with you I'd like to friend you and anyone else that wouldn't mind playing through some of my missions, to help with those mistakes. I have about 3 missions I'm working on now, and about 3 more on the back burner. I hope to have the first of the three published into the foundry by Friday.

Thanks again!

I played this mission a few weeks ago. It was a lot of fun. I believe I left a comment on my review refering to the Dak Duj as the I.K.S. Red October or something. Too bad the Klingons don't have a typhoon ship class.

Great adaptation, but some changes to the title and the name of the U.S.S. Dallas might make the story more a mystery til the end. The entire mission I could anticipate what was next, with the klingon crew singing in russian proudly in my head.
My hat is off to you sir!

All you have to do is write out your text in a word editor and then copy/paste it into the boxes when your done. That will help you find mistakes

That's exactly what I did. However, there were still a few mistakes that got past me...

Such as the "we did learn some something from it"...

Silly little mistakes... But annoying none the less.


I plan on spending some time in the Foundry tonight, so I'll fix those mistakes. My next mission will be published sometime tomorrow evening or Sat morning. I'll make sure to post on this thread once it's up with the mission name.
