Hello Everybody :cya: A fan based thread here. I haven't put this with my Zero Hour Thread, because in a sense it is an external matter. The topic of this thread (as you can very well see by the thread title) is that of the map-playable species within. What I've currently got for map species are as follows:

  • Bajoran
  • Borg
  • Breen
  • Dominion
  • Ferengi
  • Karemman
  • Son'a
  • Talarian
  • Tholian

I'm still deciding upon the Son'a. If I include them, it'll only be the one ship, but I have yet to reach a decision on that. The Son'a aren't heard about at least until Insurrection. It has been said by some that they are mentioned in DS9, though I don't remember it.

Spoiler: Show

Nevertheless, as the project is based around late TNG / early DS9, the Son'a aren't really going to be in involvement. Should I not pop it in to the project, then I'll be releasing it as a separate ship within the week.

There are others that we didn't see, or don't know much about. The Breen for example aren't seen until the later stages of DS9 (excluding one episode with Kira & Dukat), they are however mentioned in TNG. We also know that the Tholians are still around, due to their mention in DS9 (and I'm sure somewhere in TNG). The Bajoran & Dominion speak for themselves really. The Bajoran are in more or less every episode of DS9, with the Dominion popping in throughout season 4 & 5, and then large scale into season 6 & 7. The Karemman Included! The Borg speak for themselves. They are the Borg :borg: - In addition, I know there are people who think a Trek modification should have the Borg in it, and this project will, just not in the first release (aside from a single Cube). I have a lot of ideas for the Borg which I need to work with before I release them with anything. Now, as fans of Star Trek, and fans of Armada II, what would you like to see in addition to the Map Species already mentioned? Please bare in mind the setting of the storyline for the modification, and within Trek. I don't really want replies such as "Well, I'd really like to see an Imperial Star Destroyer", because that just isn't going to happen ;) Trek Species only, and those that fit in with the time-line please.

Sounds Good I Think You Missed Star Fleet Out And I Would Like To See The Andorians As Well (On The Feds Side)

By "Map Species" I do mean those not playable... Starfleet and the Federation are going to be one of the "playable" species. They aren't listed here for obvious reasons. The Andorians would be Incorporated into the Federation as of Enterprise / TOS. Even if they still use their own ships (which I'm sure they do), I have nothing to go on for making them.

Yeah, there's a mention near the end of DS9(and stated in Insurrection) that the Son'a produced ketracel-white for the Dominion... but if it's only one ship, might as well throw them in with the Dominion. And unless you've got a number of ships for the Karemma, I'd throw them in with the Dominion as well. With the era you're using the Breen are a bit tricky... in TNG they're refrenced as using biological ships... presumably something quite different from the design seen near the end of DS9, so that's a bit tricky to fit in, but it's entirely up to you. I always liked the Tamarian/T'lani ship which is late TNG/early DS9 respectively... For something different you could always add the Crystalline entity or Q which are already available on a2files. If you can find the necessary files for the Gorn ships from SFC2 that would be pretty cool to see too.

There isn't a "fleet" for them as such, thus the Son'a & Karemma will be seperate should I choose to include them.

Aye, though the Breen could have developed new ships? Or they were organic, we just didn't get a close enough look to them. Remember, there is still a lot we don't know about the Breen.

:lol: thanks for the idea, but I don't want any "God-like" stuff. :) [quote=elevatormusic]If you can find the necessary files for the Gorn ships from SFC2 that would be pretty cool to see too.

I'll look into it ;)

I'd love to see a full race mod for the Sheliak, since they seemed so scary and then they never came back. Or maybe we could find out where those creepy neck-parasite aliens in "Conspiracy" came from. Then again, you could always do something neat with a previously established race who suddenly and unexpectedly shows up wielding KILLER starships. Like the Talarians. Or maybe the Hirogen make a long, long trip to hunt the deadliest game of all: Klingons! But I've always secretly harboured a hope that someone would one day do right and have it turn out that whatever species Morn (from DS9) happened to be proved to be the ULTIMATE intergalactic powerhouse! :D

Read the DS9 Relaunch books... But the Hirogen might be cool to see, and I'm fairly certain there's a Hirogen ship available for download somewhere... The Orions might be interesting to see as well...

There are an Hirogen ship for SFC3 which is low polly, I am planning on including it in my Delta Quadrant Alliance race for my personal mod.

But the storyline is an Alpha/Beta Quadrant one isn't it Ash?

I also though the Dominion were going to be a playable race, at least in the instant action/multiplayer?

Anyway for Alpha/Beta species you have list the major players that people would most likely like to see. Though the Orion are an interesting concept.

They'd require too much work.

MajestBut the storyline is an Alpha/Beta Quadrant one isn't it Ash?[/quote][/quote]Aye, aside from the Borg, Dominion & Karemman, I'm trying to keep this in the Alpha Quadrant. All those Delta Quadrant races are for someone else to try :) [quote=elevatormusic]The Orions might be interesting to see as well...
The problem with the Orions being we have no TNG / DS9 looking ships or stations for them. [quote=Majest]I also though the Dominion were going to be a playable race, at least in the instant action/multiplayer?
The Dominion, along with the Breen and Borg are "planned" for extension races in future releases. Whether I go ahead with them or not depends upon how well I get on with them. The Borg I'll do for definate, as said above:[quote=Moi]In addition, I know there are people who think a Trek modification should have the Borg in it, and this project will, just not in the first release (aside from a single Cube). I have a lot of ideas for the Borg which I need to work with before I release them with anything.

I guess thats it then, aside from the Gorn and maybe Orion if I can find them some stuff. Does anyone know if the Hydrian & Lyrian are actually canon? [COLOR=red]PS: The Image above is now fixed. :)[/COLOR]
