I'll start working on maps in a place holder project and generating ideas based on the opening Story (or stories).

I might have to play around with the costume editor to see if it is possible to customize Borg drones at all, though I suspect it will not be.

Using the example for the moment:

The klingons lauch an offensive into Cardassian space. After sending a couple spheres to investigate, they begin assimilating an abandoned mining facitility with the intention of opening a new conduit into the Alpha Quadrant behind the distraction of the klingon offensive. Part way into the construction a damage Klingon ship happens upon the base looking to salvage parts to repair themselves and get back into the fight.

Could be played from the Klingon side looking for a lost ship or from the Federation side poking their nose into the conflict only to find more than they expected.


These are my first thoughts upon seeing the example story.

So lets see...

What we know about the Undine


Species 8472 (Undine) Facts:


* "First contact" took place in 2373/4 with the U.S.S. Voyager
* They have 5 sexes or more (think i'll try to avoid this)
* Fluidic space is in or boarders the beta quadrant (Voy: Unimatrix Zero)
* They were attacked in their space by an unknown faction from the milky way galaxy (Iconions)
* They hunt the Gekli for sport
* There is a religious cult called "Children of Fluidic Light" who see the Undine as gods.
* They can now be assimialted
* They communicate telepathically
* They've lost contact with a Terrasphere in the gamma w/e sector block (Terradome)
* The outpost that had the Iconion gate was attacked by the Federation/Klingon omega force (A light in the Dark)

And this is exactly right.

Because we are limited to only two playable factions, one would write the borg storyline in the third person just as you described, as seen from the perspective of the faction the player finds himself in, namely UFP or Klingon.

But the story will still be told about what the Borg do, in this instance.

These are awesome ideas. You've given me some ideas here for where the KDF story will start on Always wanted to do a Klingon mission around the Undine

Do you know of any movies or series covering this - Is "A light in the Dark" one of the episodes?

If you read the MYRIAD BOOKS, they describe the Fluidic Space as being another Dimension WITHOUT various timelines and are now dying out because when one Undine leaves, a hundred if not thousand variants will return and they would have to compete for food stuffs.
I thought it would be cool if Fluidic Space was a Dimension 'wedged' between us and the Mirror Universe and their very exsistence is a by-product of the Q Continuums Construction!? PSYCHE lol

Also, I dont think that the Fluidic Space is in or borders the Beta Quadrent, I think the Borg simply have scouts across the whole Galaxy monitoring for new rifts or Undine Beachheads... perhaps the Borg have detected one such beach head in the Alpha Quadrent, hence their increased attacks!? PSYCHE lol
...They could be the ones behind the Cardi Invasion!? Where is the real Chancellor?
ATTENTION: UNDINE SPACE & TKON GROUND SETS ALL THE WAY DEVS!.. Q-TRIBBLE, MAYBE!?.. EJECT WARP CORE ABILITY LIKE LAYING A SUPER-MINE, HELL YES!!!.. SPACE HIPPIES FROM TOS PLAYING MUSIC IN OUR FLEET STARBASE, NO, JUST, NO... CAIT & RA'KHOLN ADVENTURE ZONE, YES

yeah I read that too... bot for the life of me I cant remember where I read it.

The Undine dont have alternate realities... so when they recalled the undine they got undine from hundreds of realituies returning home... there was something about a torress generator stoping this if i remember correctly.

What would be interesting to see is how the potential Borg author responds should he/ she choose to follow the Undine arc.

Quite and interesting story potential there. And if I remember correctly there is an assimilated Undine costume.
