Welcome to Ten Forward Fridays, where a new playable species is presented for the Star Trek Adventures roleplaying game, filling in some gaps until official material can be released.
July’s theme is Star Trek Online, the MMORPG by Cryptic/ Perfect World. This week is is the Lukari, who were created for the Season 11: New Dawn.
The Lukari are a fun species, being a new, affable species that is just starting to venture out into space. There’s an innocence or naivety to the Lukari, as they’re less jaded by the wonders of the galaxy. As outsiders to galactic politics, the Lukari a great species for new players: they can be introduced to the galaxy and its various factions alongside the player. While many Lukari are still nervous about space travel, others are exceptionally curious and willing to work alongside Starfleet or the Klingon Defence Force. A campaign could easily focus on their entry into the Federation, the struggles of a planet trying to balance their traditional values with those of this new empire that is two-hundred years more advanced.
