Looks like a good crew. Which is the Captain? The Human or the Andorian? Red in next gen is leadership or is this original where red is the ones who die on away missions? Lol

Awesome work! This looks like a cool crew. I love that the captain isn't a human, for once! (Actually, I'm working on my own fan series with a female Andorian captain as well! Small galaxy I guess.)

I just don't understand why, after five or six series, we STILL can't have a non-human captain. Fantasy and superhero stories are packed with lead characters who aren't technically human, but who basically are "human" enough for the audience to relate to; I have no idea why a Vulcan or Andorian could be a captain on a "Star Trek" series for once.

I guess we have to do all the groups so no one feels left out before we get one of those aliens yuk yuk

....and it's not like the captain on "Enterprise" could be one of those not-yet-represented groups, because apparently having the FIRST Starfleet captain in space be female, non-white, or from a country other than the U.S. would just have been too radical.

Well canon dictates that before the federation the earth fleet would be captained by humans. That's the limitations of prequels

Okay. But there's still no reason the first captain couldn't have been Canadian, or Kenyan, or a woman.

That is very true. Don't get me wrong. I like Scott Bacula (Though I didn't enjoy Enterprise) but they could have been a bit more diverse with the cast for sure

Oh, they were one of the actual Federation founders? I'm afraid I haven't watched Enterprise (I've just been a fan of TOS for many years and have started on TNG now), so I didn't know that! That's cool. :thanks: And yes, then it's definitely a shame if they haven't been given much attention!

Well though not stated in the episode "Journey to Bael" The Human, Vulcans, Andorians and Tellerites make up the heart of the United Federation of Planets... and has been canon forever. Enterprise did it's best to show that as well.

Oh...yeah...will need to fix that. What ship are they on? What class?

KaijuDuke Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2017
Ack, well, this crew is meant to be active in a hypothetical/post Dominion War setting, so I'm currently leaning towards a Luna Class, a cool ship class that I think sadly only exists in the Star Trek novels that cover the post Dominion War era, and Star Trek Online. They seem pretty cool, they're science & deep space exploration vessels but pack a punch from what I can tell (you can refit them with a roll-bar or pod akin to the Miranda class, providing additional sensors or phaser banks etc), & are all named after moons in our solar system. That sounds about right for Captain August, he's meant to be a Dominion War vet who's relieved to finally be going back to exploratory work again, but still remembers all too well the horrors space can spit up in your face when you least expect it, so I can picture him using a Luna Class equipped with a roll-bar/weapons pod with extra firepower JUST in case he runs into unfriendly shape-shifters, borgs, or random space gods looking to dick around with him & his team.

It's a good ship. One of the few I like in TNG

So USS Callisto, Io, Phobos, Charon.....?
Reply
:iconkaijuduke:
KaijuDuke Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2017
That's good to hear, :D

As for the moon themed name, I have a few candidates, what do you think of...

1) The USS Despina, named after one of Neptune's moons (and the daughter of Demeter & Poseidon), name means "Lady" or "Mistress" in ancient Greek

2) The USS Thalassa, means "from the sea," named after a primeval spirit/goddess of the sea.

3) The USS Titania (sounds good but worry people will confuse it with Riker's ship, the Titan)

4) The USS Ariel, which sounds good, means "Lion of God," & I can imagine someone mistakingly believing it was named after the Little Mermaid rather than the moon of the same name XD

P.S. Callisto & Charon are already taken alas lol.

Alright, Despina it is, thanks man. I actually have an OC named Despina already, but she's not a star trek character or a spaceship, so I don't think it will be an issue XD
