Well here's my stroy for Armada III. I am planning to give it to Viacom so they can see if they create the actual game. Tll me what you think of it: The Borg have returned but with a new plan to Assimilate the Alpha Quardrant in another time, The 23rd century. The Borg havce always failed Assimilating the 24th century and wishes to Assimilate the 23rd century to gain control of the future. Captain of the U.S.S.Premonition Captain Thadius Dimi finds out about their plans and immediately tells Captain Jean-Luc Picard about their plans. Since U.S.S.Voyager has returned home from the Delta Quardrant that gives the Federation a chance to destroy the borg witl all of their strength. Qith the U.S.S.Premonition being the only way to save the past and alert the legendary Captain James T. Kirk they also must bring their allies the Klingons and Romulans to help the Federation. For the Klingon Empire the Dominion has returned to bring them down but Chancellor Martok will fight to the death to defeat the Jem'Hadar and the Domonion. For the Romulans Admiral sela must also fight one of their enemies the Remans from destrying the Star Empire. Once the Klingons and Romulans are finish fighting their enemies they will assist the Federation. But how far will the borg go to have it their way? How far will they do to assimilate the Alpha Quardrant? To destroy the borg from Assimilating captain James T. Kirk and Assimilating the Alpha Quardrant in the 23rd century Captain Jean-Luc Picard must "Boldly go where no one has gone before" I have decided that the Beginning of my stroy should be the movie Star Trek Nemesis. You will command the new improved Enterprise-E and command the Romulan ships and even ram the Enterprise into the Scimitar. I looked over the textures of Armada II some of them I wasen't really impressed. This time it should be like this for Armada III: New Nemesis textures on the Enterprise-E and Sovereign Class. When ships go to warp the engines will light up bright like they are really going to warp. U.S.S.Voyager and the Intrepid class ships now have folding Nacelles when they go to warp. Sovereigns are the most powerful ships in the Federation. The warp effects are more realictic just like that to the real Star Trek. Bigger ships move slower just like real big Trek ships do. You now have the Ability to fire Phasers only Torpedoes only or both. You also have the Ability to select your ship or ships' warp or impulse speed. These are the Federation ships: Prometheus,Nova,Excelsior,Excelsior (refit),Norway,Miranda, and many more. You now have more Cinematic views 1st person,2nd person, and 3rd person and full as well. You now have a zoom view in which can zoom into ships that are incoming into your base. Borg cubes are much much bigger and much harder to take down than before. There will be the Armada1, Armada II background music including a whole new list of music for all of the races. Races will include, Federation,Klingon,Romulan,Borg,Cardassian,Species 8472, Dominion, and Reman. Single-player races to play will include: Federation,Klingon,Romulan, and Borg. 50 Missions throughout the entire game. More multiplayer modes as well. So guys that's my concept I really like it and tell me your opinion.
That sound good, but remember that there are no plans to make an armada III. Trust me, I have asked activision about this issue.
Sounds good. I've come up with better. Let me dig out all my old work, or write something new. In the mean time, there is this post.
Why not build on the 3D elements of Armada II? Taking note on what was done right, in Homeworld, and Homeworld 2.
Then add the ability to customize Fleet formations in 3D. Allowing for multiple point manipulation, to specify exactly where a ship should be, at any given time, during a manuever. Then add the ability to name, and save formations. Viola, advanced tactical strategy, in 3D. The chance for clever tactics, and manuevers seen in the movies. Heck, we may even be able to make movies with this feature.
Next comes the story line. I would rather tie into Shatner's,and Judith & Garfield Reeves Stevens' books. The Return of Kirk, and Mirror universe Saga ones. Captain's blood is not bad, and happens after Nemesis. Kirk marries a half Romulan, half klingon, and has a son. The Remans think it is their king, and seek to kidnap the child. Then they have got to deal with Kirk, and whatever ship he gets a hold of.
I will fill you in on the entire series.
1st. Kirk "dies" when the Enterprise-B is damaged by an energy ribbon. Later it is found out that he only dissapeared in time, and then died again on Veridian 3 during an incident with the same energy ribbon.
During the clean up process, Kirk's body mysteriously dissapeared. It turns out that the romulans have formed an alliance with the Borg, and plan on assimilating the Federation using Kirk as weapon. Borg Technology regenerates Kirk's body, and replaces rotted parts with Borg technology. All to make Kirk appear human. After a battle with the Enterprise, Kirk resists the Borg implants, and helps Picard in an attack on what is believe to be the Borg Homeworld. Now it turns out that the Borg implants are eating Kirk alive, and he will not last long. When they reach the Borg Planet, they find a "Self Destruct" button. As luck would have it, there is not enough time to beam out, and pull the trigger. So somebody has to remain behind. Kirk knocks Picard unconcious, and activates the transporter reciever. Next he throws the switch, and the world explodes. Kirk dies again...
Actually, no. The switch activates an emergency Mass World transported, and wisks Kirk, and most of the borg off-world. It turns out that there are countless Free Borg on this world. No Borg implants, and Kirk finds he is no longer a Borg either. It appears that the world pulls in Borg transporter signals, and cleans the Borg components through some machine. Not all survive. This same transporter can send Kirk back home. Where Kirk decides to become invisble, he did die 3 times, after all. lol... He retires to a world in the Klingon, and Romulan neutral zones. A remote backwater, once thought to be a fountain of youth. Which, unlike the Baku world, turned out to be a fake. The long life, and good health was a result of genetic engineering. Using Romulan, and Klingon DNA. It was classified at the highest security levels of each empire. This were the Chal, the "Children of Heaven" (Ashes of Eden, by William Shatner), or more accurately, a species designed to survive an all out war with Earthers. Suddenly a strange plague affects the entire Alpha Quandrant. Klingons, Romulans, and the Entire Federation are at risk of becoming extinct. Kirk just happens on a miracle cure, leaves from Chal. Then Kirk finds out it is a direct attack, which almost killed his girlfriend. He sets out to kill the dude behind this, and uncovers a plot tied to Kirk's own childhood. It turns out Vulcans (& somebody else) are trying to purge the galaxy of any "weak" people. "Only the strong will survive." Sarek, Spocks's Father was a member of this group, and partially responsible for the death of countless numbers on Kirk's homeworld, when Kirk was only a child. Sarek left a message for Kirk, and Spock. "Avenge Me"... So they set out on the Enterpise-E, to save the Galaxy, again. The Enterprise crew decided to never again believe that Kirk was dead, even if they did see it for themselves.
Then Kirk retired again, to Chal. He decided to get married, and start a family, and his journey through the stars ended... So concludes the beginning, which has little meaning for Armada III, but the next few sections do.
Or not... (See a pattern?) Just before the actual wedding, his fiance begged him to get out and "find" himself. Kirk had removed all technology from their home, and refused to touch a phaser ever again. Instead he insisted on pulling a stump out of the ground by hand (literally), and pulling his back out in the process. Everybody thought that those three deaths, must have messed up his head, he was crazy Captain Kirk. Meanwhile there was a new threat on the horizon. An former enemy was preparing for an attack. This enemy, long feared, was presumed to be dead. Though the threat remained, it was still a risk. All occurences were highly classified, and everybody was told to shut up... I am having trouble remembering it all, here... Then Voyager returns home from the Delta Quadrant (this was while Voyager was still on air). The first to spot it, is the crew of the starship Enterprise (now 1701-E). It has suffered heavy damage, and Janeway is dead. They bring the survivors on board, only to have them attempt to take over the ship. Somehow they succeeded in getting everybody beemed to Voyager's brigs. !? Ok... Then they can't figure out how to get the Enterprise's engines to start, or its weapons, or shields. Geordie, and Data gain access to Voyager's Systems, activate the EMH, get free, and transfer control of the ship to Picard. It is almost exactly like Voyager, having been replicated, and programmed using stolen code. So since it is a Federation vessel, and a supership, Picard has the advantage over his own unshielded, underpowered (at the time) vessel. So Picard switches things around, and finds out what is going on. This Paris, is a slave of the Klingon, and Cardassian Empire (no "S"). He came through the looking glass, and apparently they can now bring ships through. Picard sends a report to Starfleet, and the Federation prepares for war...
Meanwhile Kirk visits Earth, to appease his wife, meets Scotty, and the crew of the Bozeman (its a displaced time travelers convention.). Then gets kidnapped by a Female half-syborg Vulcan, and Red Haired Human. Taken to the moon, on a hidden underground base. The Ladies apparently blamed Kirk for all their misery in life, and really wanted to kill him. Kirk can accept that a vulcan might be old enough to have lived through Kirk's missions, but that does not explain what he did to the human, or why they restrained from killing him. Although, given the convention, she may not be from this time. They take Kirk through a transporter, donned spacesuits, and beamed to the surface of the moon. He looked at earth, and it was dark, night side... Then he looked closer, there were no lights from most of the cities, except for a few red lights it seemed like while he was underground, earth had been attacked. Daylight was approaching, and it revealed a worse tale. Those weren't cities, they were volcanoes. The lakes were brown, dry. Earth looked dead, it was no longer a blue marble, but an ugly shade of brown. There was no life left at all. He looked at the two women, who were closely looking at his response. Then they told him, HE did this... James Tiberius Kirk. The Emperor... Kirk had just stepped through The Looking Glass. They wanted Kirk to temporarily take over the Empire, and stabilize the Mirror Universe. These two women were not acting alone, if they had been, Kirk would have been dead, again. They wanted to use Kirk to get them more technology. Now that they know what the Defiant was capable of, they wanted more. Kirk had few reasons not to. He no longer cared about the Federation, and wanted to just go home. Somebody else could save the Galaxy, he'd done it enough times already. He did find out who the Red Haired Human was. The Mirror Universe counterpart for Captain Kathryn Janeway, of the Federation Starship Voyager MIA. The guy behined the plot to kidnap Kirk. An old friend, Commander Spock, of the I.S.S Enterprise. Now at the rank of Intendant, and near death...
Okay,... So Kirk is not dead, Has a fiance', and is now wrapped up in a war between universes. Not only that, but Janeway, and Paris have mirror universe counterparts. Then the Mirror Universe now has the ability to take ships through the "Looking Glass". Both sides are preparing for war. Let the game begin.
In this book series, it is explained that for the most part, the two Federations are close mirrors of each other. Throughout most of their history, they were identical. Untill one moment in time. Picard told Zephram Cochrane about the Borg, and he had a choice to make. Star Trek: First Contact was the beginning of the Evil Empire. It no longer fits correctly, after Star Trek: Enterprise, but with a few tweaks, it still works.
Jesus, that's one helluva post.
The Borg can never again be used, as the only surviving Borgs are those made independent during Unimatrix Zero. All other Borg were destroyed by Janeway's virus thingy!
Monster_userSpoiler: Show[/QUOTE] That, indeed does soung good! Also: [QUOTE=Jaren]The Borg can never again be used, as the only surviving Borgs are those made independent during Unimatrix Zero. All other Borg were destroyed by Janeway's virus thingy!Ally with the Vulcans, and hope for the best, or try to change things. By ensuring that only the stong survive. They were prepared when a Borg vessel arrived in the Alpha quadrant, and they captured it. They then developed powerfull technology to destroy the Borg at Wolf 359. Partially assisted by advanced tech from the real Federation. Then the real Kirk showed up, and changed things. Spock pushed Tiberius into power, to position himself as the second most powerfull figure. Spock then took over the empire, and abolished all weapons. Dumb move, The slaves, Klingons, Romulans, Cardassians, etc, all rose up, and took arms. They wanted revenge, and the Empire was defenseless. The Klingons, and Cardassians took over, and Earth, and Vulcan were destroyed during the ensuing war. That brings us to the present.
Not all the Borg were killed, only some of them! (The Borg work in like pacts, like for example you have Lions, who own teritory, if one dies, they don't all die) - Only one of these 'pacts' died!

It wouldn't matter. Its not been proven that theres only one queen so its open for alot of speculation.
The question that has to be asked is "why did the borg queen not die in best of both worlds" as we know she was there because of her conversation with picard, and lets also remember the rather strange quote "you think in such 3 dimensional terms" (Borg Queen) Keeping that in mind, there is plenty of scope for the borg to come back.....
True Paul, but then why include the borg in any capacity?? You could simply have scripted and random events including random borg intrusions, for multiplayer and skirmish.
