Star Trek: Resurrection

This concept came to me the other day - it's a bit mixed at the moment, but I thought it was worthwhile posting:


It is the future ...

Starfleet returned to its exploratory roots after the end of the Dominion War and the fall of the Romulan Empire. Vast swathes of previously unexplored territory in the Alpha and Beta Quadrants have now been charted and a whole new generation of Starfleet officer, one which wasn't even born at the time of the Dominion War, are at the forefront of that exploration.

But with peace can come complacency. The United Federation of Planets believes itself secure and cannot comprehend a threat to its security so when a threat emerges, they are wholly unprepared to face it.

USS Enterprise NCC 1701 G is surveying a distant planet when it takes onboard data from an alien computer to analyse. A simple act that causes a chain of events - for in the data is a self-perpetuating program that transits into the ships mainframe, activating the replicators to emit a powerful airborn toxin that kills within seconds of inhalation and then the subspace network to perpetuate itself on every ship or station that is attached to the network and has a replicator.

Within an hour, ninety eight percent of the population of known space is dead with a few enclaves remaining on frontier worlds without replicators, shuttles without replicators and some crewmen in workpods and EVA suits.

The 47 passengers of a single passenger shuttle in Sector 001 is saved because at the time the virus strikes, her replicators are down after malfunctioning the previous day. The crew of 5 and her 42 passengers are unknowingly destined to become the last hope for a galaxy that has just collapsed -

In orbit of Earth, a prototype spaceship, the USS Calcutta NCC 80008 sits in drydock with several technicians working on her exterior hull wondering why their comm-links have just gone dead. When a passenger shuttle approaches the planet, the technicians are quick to open communications.

A passenger on the shuttle is a junior Starfleet officer, Lieutenant John Cameron, who was en-route to the planet Earth to join the crew of the Calcutta, now that junior officer is the most senior crewmember of the Calcutta left alive and the vessels nominal commander.

He must forge a true crew from a group consisting of mostly civilians and technicians, people who never expected to be manning a spaceship and never expected to be fighting for their lives.

Aided by the slender female commander of the passenger shuttle and the rugged senior-most technician, Cameron boards the Calcutta, sabotages the replicator system and exposes the ship to space by opening all of her airlocks.

With the ship prepared, this rag-tag bunch of survivors begin their journey to find others who have survived the cataclysm, find out how and why the cataclysm occured and face the truth that everyone they knew and loved may well be dead and their destinys may well lie where no one has gone before.

Re: Star Trek: Resurrection

It could work as a fan fic.

"Star Trek: The Continuing Mission"
"Resurrection"

August 5 2379

The Borg have splintered into two camps, the individualized "(New) Collective" & the regular Borg Collective. A New Borg King has taken the role of The Borg Collective's central processor / authority & brutally eviscerated the Queen from the Hive Mind, while others were struggling at Unimatrix Zero Zero One.

Pradix, a former Operative with the Obsiddian Order now heads-up a small splinter group of followers, consisting of four other beings. A tiny group consisting of a myriad of races across the Alpha & Beta Quadrants considered to be trouble-makers.

Pradix has seized the momentary opportunity to overthrow the Queen at all costs to himself & others. He's accomplished this using what the collective's accumulated from Lore, Data, & other contributions made by brief interactions with Seven of Nine & Voyager's crew, in addition to those lost before, during & after Wolf 359. Especially biotechnology gleened from Chal, the joint Klingon/Romulan 'fallout shelter' world from the TOS/TMP-era (in the Shatnerverse book "Debt Of Honor".)

Knowing the kinds of resources the Borg could bring to bear on organics, he takes the information from the Queen's central database & produces the self-perpetuating virus before deciding to join the few able souls distancing themselves from The Queen as the alt-future "Admiral" Janeway's virus goes to work.

Then Pradix & his group, link-up their own neural sub-group & momentarily open an emergency communications channel through the few remaining viable transwarp corridors between them & their objective. Everything's exploding, drones are waking-up, scared & fighting breaks out.

Pradix unleashes the replicator virus toward Utopia Planetia. The group boards a Queen's Sphere as the Cube it used-to belong to initiates self-destruct then they just sit & wait for tell-tale evidence of success or faillure.

Thanks! I've never played any Trek RPG so I'm afraid I wouldn't know of any similarities.

Funny how your re-pitch just adds lots of fanwank from the Borg and the Shatnerverse. Anyway, no. We're not supposed to know where the computer virus has come from, who originated it and when we find out, it would be an original villain and have nothing to do with the Borg.

Re: Star Trek: Resurrection

tenmei, this idea is bad-ass. It rules!

Especially how the virus works. It takes technology the galaxy can't live without and turns it against everybody. Way to think outside the box!

nx1701g, which RPG have you seen it in?

Re: Star Trek: Resurrection

Here are some concepts for the main characters for the show AND for an episode:


Lieutenant JG Ben Cameron (Scott Michael Foster) was supposed to be the Helm Officer of the experimental vessel, USS Calcutta, unaware that his destiny was to command that same vessel in the aftermath of the pathogens unleashing. Cameron seems like the stereotypical boy racer, a fact compounded by the fact that he likes to party, drink and sleep around. But, what surprises people is the fact that he is the consumate professional on duty with a vast knowledge of starships of various races and how to pilot them. He shares sexual chemistry with the, much older, commander of the passenger shuttle he was travelling on when the pathogen struck and this chemistry is complicated when Cameron realises that she is the ideal (and, indeed, only) candidate to be his First Officer.

Captain Atia Milan (Julianna Margulies) is an Unjoined Trill and was the Captain of the passenger shuttle Prospero, a decades old passenger shuttle on the Earth-Vulcan run with continually malfunctioning replicators, when the pathogen was unleashed. Despite having a great deal more experience as a commander than Lieutenant Cameron, she is passed over for command of the Calcutta by virtue of the fact that Cameron is the senior most surviving officer of the vessels original crew. A woman disgruntled with Starfleet hierarchy after being drummed out of the fleet in the past for an event she remains tight lipped about, she is prone to reminding Cameron of her experience and offering advice when advice might not be wanted, this plays against the sexual chemistry that she and Cameron share which is complicated when he offers her (and, she accepts) the position of First Officer.

MCPO Selmak Julii (David Warner) is a recent centenarian and one of the Starfleet technicians assigned to the Skywalker Yards orbiting Earth that the passenger shuttle discovers upon approach to the Calcutta. Julii is a Bajoran and struggles to rectify the unleashing of the pathogen with his strong religious beliefs, with more experience under his belt than the rest of the survivors put together, he is often seen as both a warm grandfather and a spit and bailing wire, tough as nails engineer. He is the one to figure out how to sabotage the replicators and transporters and as the senior most technician (and the only person familiar with the Starfleet systems on the Calcutta) he is a natural choice to be denoted Chief of Engineering.


EPISODE CONCEPT


"The Joining"

Cameron struggles to find enough people to man the Calcutta and begins to implement training procedures for the civilian survivors onboard. A decision is made to head to the site of the Enterprise G to investigate the source of the outbreak - but, upon arrival, it is discovered the ship is an hour away from burning up in the atmosphere and bears no survivors. However, during one of the training procedures, a civilian finds faint lifesigns in the ships engineering decks and Milan makes a shocking discovery.

Trill Symbiotes are immune to the effects of the pathogen and the Chief of Engineering of the Enterprise was a newly joined Trill. Milan must decide if she's ready to make the sacrifices inherent to being Joined in order for the survivors to learn more about the source of the outbreak.

Re: Star Trek: Resurrection

I like it. However (and this is always the toughest question in this forum, IMO): why is it Star Trek? That is, why isn't this set in an original sci-fi universe, and what does Star Trek lend to it (other than a built-in viewer base and a pre-built universe) that makes it better?

Re: Star Trek: Resurrection

Well, you could ask that question of practically every series concept made in the forum, couldn't you. However, I think this series needs an established universe to helm itself in - it would help the audience to empathise with the characters and their situations if they knew what had been lost and what needed to be refound.

I think I edited my previous post with an episode concept before realising that you posted, by the way.

Actually, I do. At least, I do to all the ones that I think are good enough that they deserve to be something other than ignored. There is, after all, nothing wrong with being an independent show, and I don't quite understand the fixation with creating the next Trek series specifically rather than simply making the next multi-jillion dollar sci-fi hit.

However, I think this series needs an established universe to helm itself in - it would help the audience to empathise with the characters and their situations if they knew what had been lost and what needed to be refound.
Doesn't this limit your audience to the Trek hardcore of about 2.1 million people? Everyone else either doesn't know the universe or hasn't watched it in so long that they won't emphasize with the setting.

I note the edited episode title and nod accordingly.

Re: Star Trek: Resurrection

It could limit the audience - but disagree it would limit it to the hardcore Trek viewers. I'm sure it could be done in its own universe, but I think it would benefit from beign in the Trek universe. Fans, the hardcore group you mention, would take from the fact that it's set in the Trek universe and empathise accordingly - and the group that you proclaim hasn't watched Trek wouldn't be any more likely to empathise with a show set in an original universe instead of the Trek universe given that, by your logic, they'd be about as familiar with each.


Another character concept and another episode concept:

Terra R.N. (To Be Cast) is a female Vulcan, a nurse with the United Earth Naval Patrol who was returning to Earth after travelling to Vulcan to be with her mate during Pon Farr. At only 23 and being one of a few Vulcans with blonde hair (she comes from the much cooler polar regions of the planet) she can occasionally be viewed as being too young (and is nicknamed 'Pixie' by some on the crew) which is compounded by the fact that she's never fully repressed her emotions. Terra becomes the defacto Medical Officer on the Calcutta* when the survivors arrive at the ship from the Prospero and with her skill set limited and the EMH program corrupted and the holographic interface destroyed (as it could be used to perpetuate the pathogen) she will often be found out of her depth.


EPISODE CONCEPT

"Never A Silver Lining"

(this episode takes place almost immediately after the end of 'The Joining')

Milan, hosting the Trys symbiote recovered from the Enterprise, sets up a bio-lab in the open shuttlebay in a runabout and recruits Terra to help her investigate the symbionts immunity to the pathogen soon make a breakthrough and come up with an anti-virus but realise that to generate the anti-virus in any sufficient quantity they would need to use the replicators which are now forbidden technology. Elsewhere, Cameron and Selmak finish an inventory of the foodstuffs that were onboard the Prospero and discover that even with rationing implemented, the Calcutta only has enough food to survive for another month - so they implement a hydroponics bay and begin to draw up a list of habitable planets that support flora and fauna whilst also not being inhabited.





* - name to be determined, it might change, any suggestions?

Sounds like another shot at VOY. Hey why not?

With the ship prepared, this rag-tag bunch of survivors begin their journey to find others who have survived the cataclysm
With a bit of BSG thrown in...

But make the captain an alien, preferably female. Someone named "Ben Cameron" is just way too expected.

Unless you get Ben Browder to play the role, then I support you 100%.

Scott Michael Foster looks bland, too young, and has an undistinguished resume on IMDB. I'd look for someone else as a lead.

Actually, the fact that he parties hard off duty but is a consummate professional on duty really does make him a stereotype, at least in dramatic terms. I'm not saying change the character's personality, but the way you've worded the relevant phrase you essentially said: "He's not a character from 'Top Gun,' but he is a character from 'Top Gun.'" See what I'm saying?

Really, it's okay to let him be that stereotype, so that you can see how much he grows up when confronted with a situation where the galaxy is crippled and he's forced to take command.

Captain Atia Milan (Julianna Margulies) is an Unjoined Trill and was the Captain of the passenger shuttle Prospero, a decades old passenger shuttle on the Earth-Vulcan run with continually malfunctioning replicators, when the pathogen was unleashed.

One question: Is Milan a Captain in Rank or in Title?

I ask this because there is (obviously) a difference, and if she's a Captain in rank, then it doesn't matter that she's not a member of the Calcutta's crew. She outranks Cameron, and as soon they step onto her decks together, she has every right to take command herself. That's just basic. He can ask as politely as he likes, but there's no way Milan is obligated to become Cameron's XO.

I only mention this because the way it's written here smacks of the type of fuzzy headedness about rank and chain of command I've come to HAAAAATE in canon and in fanfiction.

It's better if she's a captain in title only and LTJG or Ensign herself, so that the concept makes more sense.

MCPO Selmak Julii (David Warner) is a recent centenarian and one of the Starfleet technicians assigned to the Skywalker Yards orbiting Earth that the passenger shuttle discovers upon approach to the Calcutta. Julii is a Bajoran and struggles to rectify the unleashing of the pathogen with his strong religious beliefs, with more experience under his belt than the rest of the survivors put together, he is often seen as both a warm grandfather and a spit and bailing wire, tough as nails engineer. He is the one to figure out how to sabotage the replicators and transporters and as the senior most technician (and the only person familiar with the Starfleet systems on the Calcutta) he is a natural choice to be denoted Chief of Engineering.
Another miswording here (I think). It makes it seem like Julii was the guy that set it off. If that's your intention, fine. If not, you may want to reword it so it doesn't sound like he's trying to justify the attack on the basis of Bajoran orthodoxy.

Oh, and it's okay to call him Chief Engineer. The problem here isn't the title. It's when people think the title means you can call an officer "Chief". (Something else I HAAATE!)

Nothing wrong with this at all.

As to your casting choices, if you take my advice about Milan, Julianna Margulies will either be too old or have to be playing the Captain. David Warner's okay, but overused IMHO. I know nothing about Scott Michael Foster so I can't comment.

Heh - the name actually came from combining Ben Browder and Cameron Mitchell.

Scott Michael Foster looks bland, too young, and has an undistinguished resume on IMDB. I'd look for someone else as a lead.
I've seen him in Quaterlife and Greek, both of which I enjoy. He's got the skills to play a commander - especially a conflicted commander who finds himself completely out of his depth like Cameron is supposed to be.

Actually, the fact that he parties hard off duty but is a consummate professional on duty really does make him a stereotype, at least in dramatic terms. I'm not saying change the character's personality, but the way you've worded the relevant phrase you essentially said: "He's not a character from 'Top Gun,' but he is a character from 'Top Gun.'"

I borrowed some of the wording from wikipedia's description of the character of Cappy from Greek, whom Scott Michael Foster portrays. I wanted a Starfleet-esque version of Cappy which would mean toning down some of his wilder elements, though.

One question: Is Milan a Captain in Rank or in Title?

I ask this because there is (obviously) a difference, and if she's a Captain in rank, then it doesn't matter that she's not a member of the Calcutta's crew. She outranks Cameron, and as soon they step onto her decks together, she has every right to take command herself. That's just basic.

It's better if she's a captain in title only and LTJG or Ensign herself, so that the concept makes more sense.
Milan is a Captain in title only - she's actually supposed to be a civilian, kinda the same way Becka Valentine was a Captain, of the Eureka Maru, but the XO of the Andromeda under Captain Hunt.

Another miswording here (I think). It makes it seem like Julii was the guy that set it off. If that's your intention, fine. If not, you may want to reword it so it doesn't sound like he's trying to justify the attack on the basis of Bajoran orthodoxy.

Oh, and it's okay to call him Chief Engineer. The problem here isn't the title. It's when people think the title means you can call an officer "Chief". (Something else I HAAATE!)
Yup, it's just miswording. Selmak had nothing to do with the outbreak itself, he's just struggling to rectify his belief in the Prophets and can't really understand why they would allow something such as the outbreak to decimate the known universe.

As to your casting choices, if you take my advice about Milan, Julianna Margulies will either be too old or have to be playing the Captain. David Warner's okay, but overused IMHO. I know nothing about Scott Michael Foster so I can't comment.
Heh, the CO being younger and the XO being older is something that I've enjoyed toying with in the past - and something that I think could work. Here, the CO is barely a few years out of the Academy with virtually no real experience - yet he's the senior most surviving officer on the ship - and he's thrown together with an experienced spacefarer who isn't a member of Starfleet who, by her experience as commander of a civilian passenger shuttle and her experience in general spacefaring, is the best choice for First Officer.

I am open to candidates to play Cameron - but I do want to keep him as young as I can whilst still giving him some experience and allowing him to be one of the vessels senior officers.
