LOVE IT!  Timelines Dev Diary: Telling the Story

Especially Jessica TNG trick or treating!  I can’t wait to get my little blue-eyed girls in science uniforms… if I can ever get them out of Frozen Elsa dresses. grin

Lots of information in there.  We can start putting to rest some of the questions we’ve been wondering about.

-Start as a captain.  Not as an ensign at the academy.
-The game will start as Federation only.  No playing as Klingons or Romulans.

Also a hint of paths we can take in how we take command such if those are the exact titles.

*Combat Veteran
*Scientist

Great preview! Thanks, Jessica! I love the writing in GoTA. Plenty of wit, and the NPCs are each well-drawn. Each choice in each adventure has its own storyline, and it’s hard to imagine what kind of work goes into fleshing out all these alternate narratives. Major props to all those who do this work, and to DB for making sure it’s done well. Really looking forward to this game.

As far as ‘research materials,’ the devs may want to check out an interactive fiction group called alt.starfleet.rpg at http://boi.alt-starfleet-rpg.com/Main_Page I wrote on several ships over a course of 5 years there and there was some truly creative stuff. Some ships have better writers than others, but the archives are a gold mine for trek fiction fans.

Lastly, the photos of Jessica’s Halloween cosplay are AWESOME and now I’m trying to figure out if one of the GoTA sworn sword profiles is her…. ?? Inquiring minds want to know….

Again, thanks for a great post.
