Star Trek expanded

More Star Trek...

My last Star Trek post dealt with some of the crew of the USS Valkyrie NCC-113399 . I had some of the officers or key officers of the ship but not all. In this crew there are 40 officers and 210 other crew. I finished making all the officers.(I am not doing the 210 other crew. Hey, in Star Trek shows, they only ever show the officers anyway). The crew is all female. They are on a special mission from the female president of the federation to bring a lasting peace to the galaxy. The officers are diverse. There are 25 humans, of which 13 are women of colour. There are 15 alien species officers of which 3 are Andorian, 3 are Vulcan, 2 are Trill, 2 are Orion, 1 is Klingon, 1 is Charon, 1 is Bajoran, 1 is Caitian, and 1 is Wintabon (a made up name of Jaylah's species). (Did you know the writers of Star Trek: Beyond created Jaylah based on Jennifer Lawrence's character in the movie "Winter's Bone"? Thus Jaylah from J-Law. Which is why I call her a Wintabon, from Winter's Bone.)

The story is simple...

It takes place sometime around the end of Next Generation time line. For the purists, I apologize in advance for changing some established character story lines. Most of mine are original characters but some are rehashed and altered. My uniforms will also resemble the Original series because they were always my favourite uniforms.

So in my version, the United Federation of planets has elected a female chairwoman. Coincidentally, the top ranking admiral in Starfleet is also a woman. They decide to launch an all female Star ship as the new face of Starfleet, bringing back the old uniforms too. The ship is commanded by hard nosed Captain Maggie O'Conner from Ireland.

They launch the USS Valkyrie, recommissioned NC-113399 (I know there was one before but it was retired). The new ship is sent on a mission to gather the top female leaders throughout the galaxy in an attempt to overthrow all the male run systems. The belief is that women will be better suited to maintain peace throughout the galaxy. Lt Cmdr Jadzia Dax is the coordinator of the multi species representatives.

While most of the female representatives are reluctant at first, they see the Valkyrie's crew in action, capturing a Borg drone thanks to the special weapon, SLt Warona, a Cheron with telekinetic abilities.

When the galaxy has been feminized, will long lasting peace be attainable?
The top Starfleet scientist believes she can find a way to pacify the Borg by creating a Queen Bee. That turns many heads and soon female ambassadors take notice.
