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.
This month at Continuing Mission is Mirror Universe May. I’m doing one last ship from the Core Rulebook that can be used in the dark alternate reality. The Terran Galaxy-class, as seen by the I.S.S. Enterprise-D.
While a Mirror Enterprise-D was featured in a few novels, the return to the Mirror Universe in Deep Space Nine rendered most of these earlier tales non-canon. A comic produced by IDW shows a very different Enterprise-D, which matches the universe described in later episodes. In this story, the Terran Empire still exists, having been reduced in size to a few systems around Earth. The Enterprise-D is their newest and most advanced warship.
As mentioned in the first Starship Sundays this month, I like the idea that some of the Terran Empire survives.(Or two or three competing regions that each claim to be the imperial inheritor). The players can take the role of iconic characters (as seen in The Next Generation Player Characters PDF) swapping a few values and playing through their missions to restore glory to the Terran Empire.
The Mirror Enterprise-D is recognisable as the Galaxy-X, a variant of the starship seen in the finale of The Next Generation episode 7×25-26 All Good Things… during the scenes set in 2395. The more advanced nature of the ship can be attributed to the boost in technology the Terran Empire received from the Defiant in the 2150s. While these modifications could be largely cosmetic, by assuming it’s the equivalent of the Prime Reality Galaxy-X this entry can also serve for that ship for campaigns set in the last years of the 24th Century (just swap out the Departments for those seen in the Core Rulebook).
