Mission 9: Cold Case (OOC Thread)

Tue Mar 29, 2016 4:41 am

All right, we're thinking ahead on the command staff.

Mission Eight will be titled Cold Case and will feature Vike, our old nemesis from Mission One.

In this mission, Vike will be trying to sell a stolen cloaking device to the Breen. Our job is to meet up with Vike, impersonate the Breen, and acquire the cloaking device ourselves.

Of course, we will probably need some gadgets, and our costume designers will be working overtime, so any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Perhaps some sort of holo-emitters that allow us to disguise the Portland as a Breen ship? Or some other gadget?

Maybe an interesting twist might be that the Portland needs to make contact with a party that has a Breen ship, but they themselves are not Breen. Such as Ferengi, or a pirate group, or some other dubious band?

Sounds like a plan. Maybe Kent can help us with that, he speaks Ferengi.

It addresses the issue of, "Using technology to solve all problems," something that Voyager leveraged a bit too much IMHO.

I mean, it would be hilarity if a Federation-sponsored Pakled scientist showed up and demonstrated his hacked-together technology for ship holographic disguise, only for it to fail miserably and for the crew to fall back to plan B, which is obtaining the Breen ship.

I do like the notion of finding a Breen freighter. The Ferengi have no doubt acquired a few. It might even make sense to have the Portland stay in refit over Trill and man the Breen ship with our thirty best officers as well as Jena, Marcus, Novia and Thosk. Because of the Breen suits and voice modulators we may well be able to get away with quite a bit depending on how well our computer folks can forge travel permissions and the like.

Okay, then it's settled. We're using a Breen ship for this mission.

What kind of ship (a Chel'Grett cruiser, or just a freighter?) and do we want to go through a lot of effort to steal it, or simply have it be given to us by Starfleet Intelligence to get on with the mission?

Perhaps that would be a good mini mission during mission 7?

This is an excellent opportunity to bring in Arthur! Since his "theft" of the navigational data regarding the Yridian ship which stole top secret data from a Federation outpost, I've had plans to have him reveal or make use of that information to investigate further... and find a connection with the Breen. Plot-permitting, of course, perhaps he'll have some leverage to hold over Starfleet Intelligence to get their cooperation? Maybe end up infiltrating and taking control of a Breen ship during his search? He'll have to follow some leads, but it could be relevant! :)
