What would you have done?

I often find myself day-dreaming to plots that I would like to have seen on Enterprise.

I do this to relieve stress. I scribble down things: plots, encounters, characters, etc.

I also like to hear what other fans would like to have seen done on the show. So tell me, what would you have done?

Re: What would you have done?

If Enterprise did the Romulan War, then how many ships would like be employed?

Would they only be NX class ships?

I like to imagine the scenario with four or so NX class ships, along with a joint Vulcan-Andorian fleet.

Having fewer ships, in my opinion, adds a nice level of direness to the situation, which makes the eventual victory all the sweeter.

The rescue (or attempted rescue) of the "real" ECS Kobayashi Maru. The thing that inspired the famous unwinable test seen in Wrath of Khan and Star Trek. The only problem is how they manage to survive... it'd have to be something pretty special.

I had never thought of that -- that is genius.

You've got my head in a buzz, trying to come up different ideas for how that could have happened.

I liked the idea of bringing Commander Shran aboard Enterprise full time.

Re: What would you have done?

^ Agreed. That would actually have happened, if the show had made it to a fifth season. I always wondered what role Shran would have fulfilled. Leader of the ship's MACOS, maybe?

Interesting thought really....
It's always called the Earth-Romulan War, but Earth had only a handfull of actual starship by then, according to ENT. So how could they fight of fleets of Romulans? With the help of the Coalition according to ENT. But, it wouldn't really be the Earth-Romulan War then, would it? More like the Coalition-Romulan War.

Earth had lots of ships that could go Warp one and they had a staggering amount of ships that were sub light. The Closer the Romulans got to earth the more Earthican Forces it would have to deal with.

Re: What would you have done?

This sounds insignificant, but I would like to see them flesh out the role of Commodore more.

I've only heard it referenced a couple of times in all of Star Trek, and would like to see the ranks actual function.

Something between a Captain and an Admiral, and has executive powers in times of crisis, able to command a Starship over the Captain, if the situation calls for it?

Leading the MACOs seems likely.

I can't see him sharing any duties with Reed.

Re: What would you have done?

The M.A.C.O.'s at some point would have been difficultly assimilated into Starfleet.

If they weren't assimilated, then the Romulans got in a lucky shot and killed almost all of M.A.C.O.s in one shot, and it seemed daunting to rebuild them from nothing... Or they could have defected?

Where did they go?

Re: What would you have done?

I would have had difficulty working with Shran becoming Archers underling. His experience and knowledge was too great. Otoh I could see him as a strategic attache or special envoy. What I would like to see is the formation of a coalition fleet which would include Shran.

I might still call it an Earth-Romulus war if the primary theater were around earth space and other powers were inconsistent in their support. Indeed it seemed that the Romulans had become aware that Earth was the primary threat to their plans.
