Welcome to Starship Sunday, presenting a new spaceframe for the Star Trek Adventures roleplaying game, filling in some gaps until official material can be released.
Continuing Mirror Universe May, I’m adapting & tweaking a few classic ships from the Core Rulebook for play in the darker timeline of the alternate reality. This week is the I.S.S. Defiant.
The Mirror Defiant was built by Terram Rebels on the alternate reality version of Deep Space 9, still known as Terok Nor. In hindsight, this was a poor choice as the ship would be largely identical, literally being created using the same schematics as the one from the Prime Reality. (Something I didn’t consider until finishing up the entry. Oops.)
Ships in the Prime Universe should probably use the regular Defiant for missions, but campaigns set in the Mirror Universe could take place on a Terran made Defiant whose mission is fighting the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance and freeing various enslaved species. This is a fun idea being a story very much set in Star Trek, with familiar technology and aliens, but more freed of continuity and the Utopian ideals of Starfleet. Instead, it could be a game with more Star Wars undertones, as brave Rebels face off against an oppressive empire.
