Re: What Kinds of Characters?

For some reason I always liked the Nebula, Akira and Saladin classes.

Musing about possible Treks, I thought about a fun way to combine exposition and character by having a ship with a skeleton crew deliver some officers to a remote outpost (replacing those who'll come back with them). When they arrive, a Lieutenant at the Outpost bursts out laughing, asking about the ship's class. Turns out this is the very last Galaxy-class cruiser ever made, on her very last voyage. One of the arriving officers feels indignant, that this other person doesn't give such an old, worthy vessel her due--setting up conflicts for the future. At the same time of course we'd now know the story is taking place about a century or so after TNG. Which goes to show geek trivia has its uses!
