I don't know if that helps any.
It does help! :-) It looks like I'm going to have some time over Thanksgiving break to work on this project. Could you by any chance give me a list of all the characters names that you used? I just replayed your mission and shot a bunch of staged clips to use.

Right now, the only way that people will see that trailer is if they click this link. I didn't make it searchable, because I wanted to wait and see if you like it, first. By the way, this is a very short teaser trailer. I could also do a longer one with voice overs, but it will probably be closer to Christmas by the time I'd finish it.

Holy mackerel, that is awesome! I especially liked the characters you picked for the various scenes. Any chance of a higher-res version?

Well, let's see. The major NPCs are:
-- Admiral Amnell Kree, the joined Trill in charge of the Starfleet reprisal operation. You used her for "Are you up to the task?"
-- Captain Bronok Zell, her Cardassian flag captain.
-- Supervising Agent Grell, a senior Section 31 operative. He's the Ferengi in black in "no one is as they seem".
-- Mera Theel, an Orion matron who is really an undercover Starfleet Intelligence petty officer.
-- Master Chief Operations Specialist Peter Wiggin, the sensors officer on your ship (camera-shy).
-- Ensign Arak Esplin, communications officer on your ship (also camera-shy).

The other named NPCs are:
-- Captain Jerek Enya, the Bajoran Militia officer in the foreground of "... and our very way of life hangs in the balance..."
-- Varus Jolin, the guy in the cage in the "The innocent are suffering" bit, and his Romulan wife Saeihr (camera-shy).
-- Lieutenant, Junior Grade Jin-Soo Park, the conn officer on your ship (camera-shy).
-- Dalsh Kong, the Breen admiral guarding the mining operation shown in the "... becomes a chase that spans the quadrant." bit.
-- And of course my avatar Vice Admiral Kanril Eleya has a Creator Cameo as "The Dungeon Master".

Looks awesome. I've added it to the OP.

Patched to 1.2.1 to fix issues introduced in the 1.2 patch along with a couple dating errors I discovered.

Starswordc, I have an idea I'd like to propose to you. Could I please have your handle so I can message you? Thanks! :-) Or, if you prefer, we could chat on Starbase UGC. I will be on there a lot this week.

My in-game handle is starswordc, same as my username here. Not going to be on much for the next little while 'cause it's finals week IRL.

Patched to 1.2.1.1 to fix a couple minor costume color issues and a missing dialog option. Barring something crazy happening, this is probably the final build until I get part 2 finished and can add it to the mission end dialog.

I just want to thank everyone who's reviewed my mission in the past few days, including lincolninspace. I'm now up to 28 reviews at last count.

Part II is coming along. It's roughly half to two-thirds done. I'm using a few tricks I've learned by observation, such as avoiding a map transition after one objective by turning off a whole star system and turning on a warp effect, then turning on another star system. Due to use of reskinned Terran Empire mobs in a couple of spots it'll have a minimum level of 31.
