OK, since I feel like I’m going a bit crazy with Corona panic, I’ve to try to take my mind off things and focus on something more pleasant instead.
Rewatching select episodes of DS9 and reading through the excellent Gamma Quadrant Sourcebook, I suddenly had an idea for a campaign: The player characters are inmates of Internment Camp 522, an asteroid orbiting the gas giant Kendi VI in the Kendi system on the far side of Dominion space. The characters are either survivors of one of the many battles against the Dominion that were taken prisoners, or they were replaced by Changeling infiltrators in the Alpha Quadrant and kept alive for unknown reasons. This setup has the beautiful advantage that the players can basically play whatever character they want - military, civilians, Starfleet, Klingons, Cardassians, and even Breen!
Their mission sounds deceptivly simple: Capture the monthly supply ship and use it to cross Dominion space until they get to the Bajoran Wormhole, while evading the Jem’Hadar, Drai assassins and the wrath of the Founders!
One episode I’d like to run involves the pc’s coming across a derelict Borg vessel - just because I always wanted to see a grudge match between the Jem’Hadar and some Borg drones! Also, what do you think, how would a Changeling react to an injection of Borg nanites?
So, what do you say about this campaign premise? Interesting, or not?
