    I'm spit-balling here, but who would be up for creating a shared fan fic universe? A bunch of stories, independent initially but crossing over from time to time?

    Sounds interesting. What do you have in mind exactly? (timeframe, etc.)

    Possibly the Dominion War, the early stages, building up to Operation Return.

    Not committing, but put me down as intrigued.

    Love the idea! It reminds me of how Robert Asprin's Thieve's World came to be. However, I think there's already a ton of stuff written and shown The Dominion War. I would suggest setting it in the missing era of either Enterprise-B or Enterprise-C.

    Enterprise-B era would be good. According to the lore, the B was a thorn to the Romulans, and also discovered the Cardassians and Bajorans. A ship with a fair few years of service and a mysterious disappearance.

    Another option, if you want time frame to be during a war, you could use the Federation-Cardassian War which was a few years before TNG/Far Point.

    It could be something that we lead into, building upon the Enterprise-B era material.

    I also think considering at wars like the Federation-Tzenkethi War, the war with the Talarians, or even the Sheliak in the 23rd century if you wanted to do a big crossover series around a war. That being said, there isn't much out there either about the wider Klingon-Federation War in "Errand of Mercy." And then perhaps the granddaddy of them all, the Earth-Romulan War.

    It could be an exploration series, or about a small conflict, or a mixture of elements. Imagine how the Marvel Cinematic Universe wove various strands together.

    I'd have to say maybe. I would be more interested in doing something during the Earth-Romulan War/Early Federation era or the TOS era.

    ^ I'd be tempted by that as well, after I read "Starfleet: Year One" the era and idea of building the Federation enticed me, plus I've always fancied trying out a Daedalus-Class ship.

    It could span multiple times, if we wanted it to.

    I'm just going to say it: Temporal Cold War (ducking now).

    Well, I can say with my hand on my heart that it wouldn't be my first choice!

    Might not be a bad way to tie the stories together, actually...

    I'm not against the idea. It doesn't need to be my desires, this is open to what anyone thinks.
