The new character selection screen is easily the best UI change in STO. Makes your guys look super awesome. I want to watch all these shows. I can’t help but imagine these crews as characters.
I.K.S Amor has my newest, Klingon character, M’Korr, because I wanted a Klingon catmans. His Science Officer is the most enormous Gorn I could make, with a Thoughtful stance, so he’s basically Beast/Hank McCoy. And a sexy Orion lady Engineering Officer, of course.
USS Slavutych has Seusti, my first character, who I originally conceived as kind of an alien Disney Princess from a rare minor species. But she’s a Tactical Officer, so I guess she discovered some kind of strategic talent. She has her tough-as-nails Andorian veteran security chief to look out for her, and a Science Officer of her own rare species who once nurtured an unrequited infatuation with Seusti.
USS Cyclops is captained by Chloe, who I imagined as a big, bulky brick of an Engineering Officer, as tall and as broad-shouldered as I could make her.
RRW V’nitor has Neauna, my Romulan Science Officer, a researcher-turned-captain. The Romulan starting missions do a fantastic job of giving you a crew with their own characters and backstories, all intimately tied into your own, so I kept them all.
