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: 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!

Spaceframes in the 26th Century

I’ve been working on spaceframes for Star Trek Adventures, specifically spaceframes inspired by the huge roster of ships available in Star Trek Online. Like my previous post about spaceframes in the 25th century, this is laying out some default rules for ships in the 26th century, a period later than the events of Star Trek Online but intruding on the Federation nonetheless.

STO Spaceframes: Federation Heavy and Tactical Escorts

I’m back today with more escorts for your Star Trek Adventures game, based on options in Star Trek Online. Today we cover some of the most iconic combat-oriented spaceframes in the game and these are some cool options for those of you who want to take a stand against the Borg or the Dominion. I also want to offer a special thanks to site fan Takeshi Yamato for all the advice and support in this project!

Spaceframes in the 25th Century

In writing spaceframes for Star Trek Adventures using the roster of ships from Star Trek Online, I’ve started to tackle advanced spaceframes from the 25th century. These starships include some advanced armaments and technological advances that are just plain better than those of the Next Generation era. Rather than tie up those advancements in valuable Starship Talents, these are the changes I recommend for spaceframes designed after 2400.

STO Spaceframes: Federation Escorts

Next up in the Star Trek Online material for Star Trek Adventures, I’m taking a look at the low-tier end of the escort category. Escorts are always a hard sell to Trek fans since combat is always seen as the last resort for Starfleet. I prefer to think of it in the opposite direction, though: other groups have ships built for combat, but the Federation has combat ships that can perform in a number of different situations.

Vulcan Philosophical Schools

The Vulcan species has been an important and beloved part of Star Trek since the very start and fans have delighted in seeing the species and culture grow. A great leap forward in this is the information in The Way of Kolinahr supplement from Last Unicorn Games. Personally, I love these schools and wanted to bring them into the present with Star Trek Adventures. If you feel the same way then read on and enjoy!

Tzenkethi Vessels

In the Alpha Quadrant Sourcebook, the information on the Tzenkethi Coalition is exciting and makes for a great alternative to the species that players might already be very familiar with. However, there aren’t any starships for use with the Coalition… so here are some that I’ve made!

Debt for Ferengi Characters

Continuing with my effort to expand your campaign options in Star Trek Adventures, I’m here today with a new mechanic for Ferengi characters! Sure they’re one of the goofiest species in Star Trek, sure they were a failed attempt at a nefarious enemy in The Next Generation, but if you watched Deep Space Nine and don’t have a soft spot for these big-eared weirdos then you’re dead inside.
