STO Spaceframes: Agents of Yesterday, Part 3

Alright! We’re at the end of our run of Agents of Yesterday, the time-displaced expansion for Star Trek Online. The first post in this mini-series just looked at starships of the 26th century and what options you had. The second post looked at eight different spaceframes that feature in the expansion, both 23rd century vessels and the 26th century versions they inspired. Today we’re going to look at one of the story’s most compelling details: time travel.

STO Spaceframes: Agents of Yesterday, Part 2

I’m back today with the next post in my Star Trek Online series, bringing you spaceframes from the game’s Agents of Yesterday. Last time I went over the rules for starships in the 26th century but today we’re going to be looking at some specific spaceframes from the expansion.

STO Spaceframes: Agents of Yesterday, Part 1

Back in 2016, Star Trek Online celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Star Trek franchise with the release of the “Agents of Yesterday” expansion. This involved a new faction (Starfleet in the 23rd century) but it was also connected to the Star Trek Online main plot through some time-traveling shenanigans. It might be messy to meld altogether from an RPG standpoint but we’re doing it all so here we go!

Collecting STO Spaceframes So Far

I’ve been really enjoying working on all the different ship types in Star Trek Online and bringing them into Star Trek Adventures. It’s a fun process to open up different options and to see where there are holes in official and fan-created spaceframes. The posts are scattered around slightly but here’s everything so far.

Happy Enterprise Day!

Today is January 17th, otherwise written as 17/01 (besides in the U.S.) which makes it the perfect day to celebrate the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701! This is a great tradition that I’m glad exists and to celebrate it I’ve come up with a set of new spaceframes from the era of the original Star Trek series.

Jester Dave has previously come up with a bunch to supplement the Constitution class and the Miranda class in the core rulebook. I gathered together his era-appropriate spaceframes in a single pdf for your convenience. Below that is a new pdf with six different spaceframes from the tumultuous Battle of the Binary Stars in the pilot of Star Trek: Discovery. These are the Cardenas class, the Engle class, the Hoover class, the Malachowski class, the Nimitz class, and the Shepard class. Use them for your TOS-era Star Trek Adventures game or as leftover spaceframes from a previous era. And give me feedback by all means!

STO Spaceframes: Pilot Escorts

We’re getting into the more complicated options for spaceframes in Star Trek Online in the spaceframe project. Starting at Tier 5 there are some advanced starship types that I have different rules for. Today I’m presenting rules for pilot escorts and would love some feedback. Post your ideas in the comments!

STO Spaceframes: Advanced Escorts and Assault Cruisers

There’s a lot of ground already covered with this spaceframe project but still so much to go! Eventually we’ll be getting into the more obscure Star Trek Online ship classes that will be unrecognizable to folks who have never played that game. But that’s not today. Today we’re looking at some classes from the shows and movies that have some exciting options!

STO Spaceframes: Federation Cruisers for Commanders

This one’s a little out of order because… Well, because I got a little mixed up. Anyways, we’re taking a step back from the Galaxy and Intrepid classes last time and looking at the Tier 3 ships for Commander-level characters. There are some classics in here so let’s dive right in!

STO Spaceframes: Galaxy and Intrepid Variants

I’m back today with more spaceframes inspired by Star Trek Online, these ones variants of two of the most iconic starship designs in the Star Trek universe: the Galaxy class from The Next Generation and the Intrepid class from Voyager. These are some impressive spaceframes already that have seen a lot of use in games that I’ve played in, but today I bring you some innovative variants for use in your Star Trek Adventures game!
