STO Spaceframes: Tier 5 Cruisers

Welcome back to another addition to our growing list of Star Trek Online spaceframes! I’ve got to keep up on this because they keep adding more ships, but today I’m going to talk about some spaceframes that have been around in the game for quite a while.

Delta Quadrant Review, Part 2

I’m back with the second half of my Delta Quadrant sourcebook review. Last time I talked about the information chapter and the species of the Delta Quadrant. Today, I’m continuing with the starships and antagonists you’ll find there. Spoiler alert: there are a lot of threats here, and a lot of them are Borg.

Delta Quadrant Review, Part 1

Well, we’ve come full circle. What started with the Beta Quadrant and Alpha Quadrant, then continued more recently with the Gamma Quadrant. Now we’re at the final slice of the Milky Way Galaxy, the Delta Quadrant Sourcebook and what a finish. Folks, if you like Voyager and/or Borg then you are in for a treat. If you just want new ideas, fresh stats, and innovative mechanics then read on as well. Come for a ride and see just how far this thing goes.

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!
