If you could have the perfect mod designed for you, what would you like to see in it? Don't mention impossibilities unless you are unsure about their feasability. Lets stick to the Star Trek setting, though we could always mention other races within that world. Talk about things such as ships required, races, technologies, changes in epochs, weapons, new map items, all that sort of stuff.

I would like to see a home world mod as it has lots of ships and is one of my favourite games however most of the weapons would have to be pulse based as most of them where rail guns or something like that. The ion cannon frigate would be nice and a facility to manufacture motherships ,like the scafold orbiting karak in the first game. The mother ship could be like the one in the game but able to move slowly and have hyper space leading to such enjoyable pastimes as hunt the last mother ship .I would like to see how the mothership processing resources could be handled i supose youy could do it like the speciews 8472 transmuter :)

In an ideal world, the mod would include all 6 races from the ST:A2 universe plus 4 others. These others would include the Dominion/Breen (sigh...so many Dominion mods out there...oh well), the Orions (ah, now THERE'S something new), the Ferengi (yeah, they're not a major power but they do manage to be a thorn in the side of both the Federation and the Klingon Empire), and the DRUID sect (Disgruntled Races of the Universe Independent Dominion consisting of the neglected Andorians or Hirogen, the Remans, the Gorn, the Krenim, the Kazon, and the Tholians).
Every side would have a WMD (for the Federation and the Ferengi, this would stand for a Weapon of Mass Defense) that could affect all ship and station types except one (a special unit immune to all WMDs...probably a rare type of construction ship so no one WMD could destroy an entire side). For example, the Dominion would use some sort of Nova device (akin to the one they were going to use to destroy the Bajoran sun in ST: DS9 "By Inferno's Light"), the DRUID would use a time-erasure weapon (I have made such a weapon and may release it once I get the buildbutton just right), and the Ferengi would use a latinum-shield (a sensor-obscuring nebula that would allow the Ferengi to secretly build up a navy or simply get away from a bad situation...somewhat like the Fluidic Nebula used by Species 8472 Behemoth class vessels). The scariest WMD would belong to the Borg, who would utilize an Assimilation Wave (really just a fancy computer override with a ridiculously long control time and an even more ridiculous refire rate; I have created such a weapon and will post it once I get the buildbutton down pat).
The biggest problem I have seen with mods is lack of balance. In theory, the Sovereign class ship should be able to stand toe-to-toe with the Keldon class but usually, the Keldon prevails (why? better shields but equal weapons). To parry this, the Sovereign should carry heavier phasers (better weapons v. better shields makes for a more interesting and fair battle).
Now, I admit the DRUID concept is nothing new (heck, lots of mods use the Gorn and the Krenim, even the Kazon, but I have yet to see an Andorian vessel, more than six Reman vessel types, three Kazon ships, and only two Tholian vessels). Still, it would be nice to see someone other than the Federation make peace with multiple alien species and work together like the UN (yeah, and if the UN still functions, I am a Borg drone).
