Title: Healing Old Wounds (Ep. I)

Author:  Alenis Kendra

Faction: Federation

Level Requirement: None

There is an incoming message! A Bajoran scientist informs you that a state of emergency has been declared in Hathon. He is requesting that you leave to rendezvous with him on Bajor immediately. This mission will call for scientific, diplomatic and tactical skills, both in space and on the ground.

This mission is story oriented and is part of a series of episodes I am writing that revolve around the Bajoran people. This mission is perfect for fans of DS9, but can be enjoyed by anyone.


Also, this episode was reviewed by Hippiejohn in the last episode of The Foundry Roundtable, which you can view here!


A note from the author, Alenis Kendra:

Hi all!

I am fairly new to the STO community. Earlier last year, after only a few weeks of playing, I was seriously disappointed with the lack of Bajoran related content for low leveled players. In fact, I was discouraged enough to almost lose interest in the game. Then, I discovered The Foundry. It was like a whole new world had opened up to me! The vast potential for storytelling made me drool with anticipation! I hammered off my first version of this mission, not having a CLUE what I was doing. Unsurprisingly, it wasn’t very good.

Thankfully, instead of just writing me off, other Foundry authors made some very helpful suggestions. And now, after many more months of writing, tweaking things, and driving everyone on Starbase UGC’s chat completely bonkers, I have successfully re-released my mission!

So, I’d like to send a special thank you out into the galaxy to everyone who helped me, both on the STO Forums and here on Starbase UGC! In addition, I want to thank Kirkfat and Bazag for their fantastic video tutorials.


Healing Old Wounds


Two leaders of a Starfleet Academy funded archeological expedition have uncovered evidence of a previously undiscovered alien civilization on a Reunificationist colony world, but their inability to cooperate sends you on a mission of diplomacy. However, do more mysteries lie just below the surface?

This was technically the second Foundry mission I ever built, while the Foundry was still in beta on Tribble. I believe Filbones even reviewed the original version for StarbaseUGC here —

Unfortunately the Foundry was wiped on Tribble before I could port this mention in its entirity, so what remained was a handful of maps, costumes, and dilaogue boxes. I decided this was for the best — I would remake Monolith to be better than it ever was on Tribble, but it would take the Foundry to acquire some improvements … one of which was triggers, and another was only recently added — Tholian NPC Contacts.

While the original version featured a Vulcan and Tellarite archaeologist along with Romulan and Breen forces fighting over Preserver technology, I wanted to better explain the crystalline structures and place the mission more in line with “modern” story elements of Star Trek Online such as the Romulan Republic. To do this, I changed Saeril to be a Reunificationist colony world, and also replaced the Breen mob group with a different species. This also helped me explore two different A Plot and B plot ideas.

I hope they strike a cord with you and that you like the characters. Please play the mission and leave a review. ūüôā

Title: Relics
@handle: Kirkfat
Faction: Fed
Level: Any
Style: Diplomacy, with some action

Description: The Klingon Empire is occupying a planet for unknown reasons. You are sent to investigate. What you discover will alter your perception of the cosmos, its past, and its present.

This is an entry for STO’s foundry challenge #4.

Mission Title: Vulcan Love Slave #9

Faction: Federation, Any LVL

Description:¬† The death of a Starfleet Admiral at Prell’s Gentlemen’s Club requires an investigation.¬† What you discover may have far-reaching consequences for Federation law and the rights of many artificial life forms.

Author’s notes:¬† I made this mission a few months back, but I haven’t advertised it much.¬† I’m proud of it, so it’s sad that it’s one of my least played missions.¬† It was also an ambitious attempt to resolve lingering and unanswered cliff-hangers of Cryptic’s official “path to 2409.”¬† Because I’m now convinced that certain parts of the path will never be addressed or completed, I decided to do so myself.

I hope that you enjoy it.  Please leave feedback.  Thanks!

STO Foundry author Nagorak weighs in with his research about ship scaling for NPCs (non-player characters).

Using the STO Foundry, “I managed to determine the ship scaling for the Foundry ship groups up to five (5) players*. What I’ve discovered is that the NPC actors always remain the same type of ship, but which ships spawn varies depending on the number of players (and it’s not as simple as spawning in order of the actor list).”

“There is also some variation in hull strength (and maybe damage output) of the ships to further balance the groups. So, for example, one battleship may have more hull than another in that group or a different group. That difference in strength explains why there are some identical spawns with different actors. (For example, with the battleship group, you get a battleship and dreadnought both with 4 and 5 players, but the 5 player spawns are stronger.)”

“I believe the information is accurate, but I had to record a lot of different groups, so it’s not outside the realm of possibility that I made a mistake. If there is a mistake, then it will only be in the exact mix of ships at each player amount. The exact type of ship each actor is (which is the most important info) should be correct.”

Mission: The Needs of the Few


Faction: Federation

Level: All

Description:  A newly warp-capable species is in the process of applying to join the Federation.  You are tasked with exploring their world and making a recommendation to the Federation Council.

Author notes:¬† This is my second diplomacy mission.¬† There is no combat and plenty of reading involved.¬† In some ways, it is very similar to “The Return to Terra Nova,” as far as mission mechanics go.¬† However, my goal was to center the mission around a choice, which I was unable to do in “The Return to Terra Nova.”

This mission is also my most issue-oriented story, meant to generate heated debates about relevant social issues of the past, present, and future.  Please give it a try, and let me know what you think.

Also, please let me know if you spot typos.¬† I’m still polishing the text, and I need help.

The conclusion to the Unholy Alliances Triology. I have developed a teaser trailer to help encourage people to play the mission. It’s for Federation players level 41+.

Synopsis: We have obtained the algorithm to unlock the Claw database we recovered. It’s still being analyzed. However, we do know that the Claw is being supplied with designs for advanced holographic technology, while a holographic virus is granting artificial sentience to holograms all over the quadrant.

It originates from an mining facility in the Otha VIII planetary system.  Go to the Otha system in Eta Eridani to investigate and stop the Claw.

DESCRIPTION  : From the 23rd of December 2010 to 16 of January 2011,  the State of Queensland, Australia saw some of the worst flooding in its history. 60% of the state was flooded from this Natural Disaster.

This Foundry mission was based on some of the events that happened, but with Starfleet playing the role of the Australian Defence Force. For a better understanding of what happened during that time, I have linked a Youtube 7 part series on the floods.

I am pleased to announce that I have released the 4th episode of my Spawn of Medusa story Arc. This episode leads the build up into the series finale.

Story Leads off where Part III ends.¬†
