Most of us know that the captain of this ship is Brandon(aka Branflakes), but I would like to know more about the rest of her crew. For continuity's sake. Add more to the lore of the Avenger prototype. (I'm guessing that Brandon being the Avenger prototype's captain is indeed canon in STO...)

I'm wondering if he has any plans to maybe get him and his crew involved in the storyline somehow. Even 'canonize' a livestream somehow. I think this would be very cool. Also, maybe get a few other Cryptic employees that play STO involved in the canon as well as new ships we can identify them with come out.

Anyone else agree that this would be a neat idea?

Those aren't the U.S.S. Avenger NCC-97500. Those are ships that have different names that happen to be of the starship class that is named Avenger.

A great idea. It has been pleasant and enjoyable the few times I have encountered Devs ingame.

Chris Carter, Hall of Fame wide receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles and the Minnesota Vikings, said something today which I hope resonates with the Dev Team.

"I'm not just an athlete, I'm a fan!"

I'd like to see much more of the stories of your ships and crews and their adventures, guys.

Where does it say that Brandon is the canon captain of the Avenger?

It doesn't, which is the point of the thread. He does fly the U.S.S. Avenger on his in-game character though. (saw it in one of his live streams) And I was proposing the idea of making him a canon part of STO lore.

I see, so it's not much different than all those Enterprises with various spellings out there.

Why isn't it? He's part of the Cryptic team, so he should have the authority to take on the role if allowed. And the Enterprises have established captains. The Avenger as far as I know does not.

The way I see it, it's far different than "all those Enterprises with various spellings out there".

I don't think Devs/CMs should play lore characters as their regular characters.
They could, however, specifically create and impersonate them for Live RP Events.
There's a couple of CMs on EVE who do that regularly.
