0. Name. Star Trek: Odyssey

1. Core Sentence.Star Trek: Odyssey is about a crew of humans, posthumans (who needs a Vulcan when you can have a mentat on board?), and the occasional non-human on a five year mission during the early age of the Federation: to explore strange, new worlds; to seek out new life and new civilizations; and to boldly go where no man nor woman has gone before!

2. Who are the heroes? Players will construct two PCs each, one of them an officer and one of them a specialist in landing party encounters. Heroes include the Captain, Executive Officer, Science Officer, Ship's Surgeon, Chief Engineer, Weaponry Officer, Ship's Pilot, Communications Officer, Ship's Counselor, etc.

3. What do they do? Varies from episode to episode -- Think about what the heroes did in Classic Star Trek!

4. Threats, Conflicts, Villains: Threats might include strange space phenomena, hostile lifeforms, technological malfunctions, etc.

There is the "cold war" with the Klingon Empire and the stalemate with Romulan Star-Empire. Also, perhaps, there is a "cold war" with the Cylon Imperium or a stalemate with the Magog Swarm, depending on discussions with players.

Unlike Classic Star Trek, this campaign's Federation is not the only "good guy" galactic order. So in addition to competition with the fascist Klingons or imperialist Romulans for inducting new planets, the crew also competes with the Systems Commonwealth.

5. Inspirations: Classic Star Trek, of course. Also ST: Next Generation and the recent movie.

Bits and pieces from Andromeda, Battlestar: Galactica, Dune, and even Star Wars, and whatever else seems fun while adaptable to the spirit of the original series.

This is a "fresh start" campaign, so aspects of it remain open to negotiation once the full player roster has been determined.
