Hi, everybody, I'm looking for some feedback with a potential story idea, along with who (specifically which, if any, TV, film, or book characters) could serve on this ship. "In the aftermath of the Klingon Civil War ("Redemption, Part 2", TNG Season 5, Episode 1), Lieutenant Commander Data's performance as commanding officer of the Nebula-class U.S.S. Sutherland impresses the brass enough that they offer him command of the Sutherland permanently, along with a promotion to Captain." I'm interested in exploring what kinds of changes this would have on canon events - would Data having his own ship undertake certain kinds of missions? Would they have some of the adventures depicted in The Next Generation? And, of course, how would the Enterprise-D fare without its android second officer/another officer in his place? Also, which characters could serve aboard Captain Data's Sutherland? Could some of the Enterprise's personnel transfer? Please keep in mind that I'm not looking to take away Captain Picard's entire senior/named staff, so having Geordi, Worf, Deanna, Chief O'Brien, Lt. Barclay, and Nurse Ogawa all transfer to the Sutherland would be a no-go...one or two of them, maybe, but no more than that. How about some characters from the novels, or characters from DS9 or Voyager either before or instead of their tours aboard those series? Anyways, any and feedback would be appreciated! Thank you.
