We at Continuing Mission are saddened to learn that Walter Milani-Müller, an enthusiastic GM, a German translator for Star Trek Adventures, and a familiar and friendly voice on the STA Facebook group, had passed away last week.
We became friends when I was working with him on the opening sequence for his campaign, Star Trek: Persephone. While we were designing the 3D model of his favourite ship, the U.S.S. Persephone (a class that he had invented decades ago), he took great attention and joy to the look and feel of the ship, and I helped him realize his vision of what the opening sequence to his campaign would be. We put up the trailer and his spaceframe for the Persephone-class, and he was thrilled to see his idea come to life. He had also just finished first edits on a fantastic STA module for the Community Campaigns. Walter loved Star Trek and the game, and we will miss him dearly as part of our gaming community.
More information about Walter’s life can be found at DOCMA:
In remembrance, we give you his beloved ship: the U.S.S. Persephone (NX-63109), which we had originally planned for release in the fall. Maybe there’s a place for a cameo or starring role in your campaign for Walter’s contribution to the community, a way for us to pay tribute to his memory.
Farewell, my friend.
My forum just finished a tribute collection of models inspired by Walter;
“2020 ends with a sad but fond farewell to our friend and fellow artist Shep; aka Walter Milani-Muller. Shep was inspiring, energetic, and prolific both in his creations and in praising the works of his fellow artists.
This Forum Hoard is inspired by and dedicated to Shep who has, “Boldly gone before”.
Bless you Shep, you are missed.”
