Star Trek: Daedalus by JamieTakahashi Star Trek: Daedalus by JamieTakahashi
Star Trek: Daedalus
My proposal for another Star Trek series. It would follow the USS Daedalus and the Federation through the Romulan War era, one of the great unexplored chapters in Trek history. One of the defining factors of the show would be that everything is lit much more realistically (but not so realistically that the ship is completely black in deep space).

Of course, the other series suggestion is Star Trek: Avenger, but that's a totally different story...

In any case, the picture of Earth is real and the Daedalus model was made by me.

Fantastic art work it looks professional quality. This looks like it could be a screen shot from the title sequence. Perhaps Paramount should hire you.

I admit, it's a real stock photo of the Earth I used, but I did want it to have that title sequence feel. I'm glad you like it though haha God knows I wish they'd hire me to be part of the next series (whenever that comes along), though I'd rather act in it

Daedalus class is a favorite of mine! I also love the Olympia class... (or class of that ship from TNG).

I know I'd watch!

As for what I'd want a next Trek series to be about... Captain Sulu and the Excelsior!

Haha that would definitely be interesting. They really should go and do something about the lost era.

P.S. Not that i hated Enterprise, but in my eyes I think that it failed to deliver the same quality as TNG & DS9

Realistically speaking it's fine on going backwards and finding out what lead to the events of the 24th century, but I think that Enterprise was the last straw.

When there are plenty of good story's to be told after Star Trek Nemesis, from all three 24th century shows points of view (just to name a few):
1: Like what is Will Riker's command on board the Titan like?
2: How will Picard adjust to his new senior Staff?
3: What happens to Voyager and all of her miscellaneous crew members?
4: Are the Borg gone, or were they just dealt a crippling blow? (Endgame)
5: Life aboard DS9 and the possibility of Sisko Returning from the Prophets?
6: The Alpha Quadrant post Dominion War?
7: The re-exploration of the Gamma Quadrant?
8: Section 31 and its future?
9: The Federations expansion with regards to the Temporal Accords?
10: Peace With the Romulans & Sela's whereabouts?
11: Martok's Reign as Chancellor?
12: More about the El-Aurian's?
the list goes on and on!

I agree that maybe it's time for Star Trek to look forward again and find out what happened after the events of the Dominion war and Nemesis. You brought many good questions that were left unanswered and would make great stories for a new Star Trek TV series. It would also be cool if Paramount would various TV mini-series to help fill in the gaps in the Trek universe like early Federation Pre-TOS, post TOS to pre TMP, post TMP era to pre TNG. I also like to know what the hell the Romulans were doing during the TMP era, and what did the Federation do to thwart their plans? The Klingons got most of the attention but I think the Romulans are equally compelling as a foe in their own right.

Those are plenty of interesting points, but for the first two, remember, Enterprise started in 2001 and Nemesis was in 2002. Also, a followup on Voyager would likely be quite bland because it would follow that the crew broke up and went on to different assignments. Case in point: Admiral Janeway. And the El-Aurians are almost all dead anyway so there's nothing much there. I agree that there are a lot of possibilities, but I still like Enterprise for what it is, and most of the historical "incongruities" can be explained away. Others, like the Borg and the Ferengi, have to be taken with a grain of salt and tossed over the shoulder.

I always thought Daedalus was a class of ships. I have heard of a Sovereign class starship given that name (non-canon source), but they named a Deadalus class ship was named that too?

JamieTakahashi Featured By Owner May 15, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, the USS Daedalus was the first Daedalus Class starship. The class name is derived from the name of the first ship of the class. Besides, they reuse names all the time so there's nothing that says a Sovereign can't be called USS Daedalus ^_^

I agree that missing out the Earth-Romulan War really pulled Enterprise down. (Not that I like war, but I like visual effects, but that's not relevant. >_>;) I do think that Star Trek: Enterprise had a promising note towards the end of season 4. I like the last few episodes. Well, save for "These Are The Voyages".

It seems to me Star Trek: Enterprise got canceled just as the show was really starting to get interesting which is a shame. People often forget that TNG and DS9 both didn't really get good until their 3rd seasons.

Sounds like a sweet series premise. I remember when Enterprise was first announced that they would cover that war... but I was left with untended desires...

Well, I don't fault the series for that...I'd just blame Brannon and Braga. They were idiots. When the new person took over, he showed promise of putting the show in the right direction. Season 5 would have been so good...

Raveninskyprime Featured By Owner May 13, 2008
Yeah, I would have to agree with you there. Season 5 would have put the series on the right track; but hey, at least there is still a film coming out next year (Here's hoping it's good!)

Yeah, I just hope it doesn't screw with continuity too much. The redesign of the Enterprise is going to mess things up enough as it is...

In my eye it's a reboot, kinda like how Batman Begins re-wrote a lot of stuff I'm sure this Star Trek film will do the same... I'm learning to just deal with it as it comes. If it's fun, it's fun... if it sucks... that's the end of Star Trek.

I wish they would do that part of Star Trek history. Lots of room to explore and fill in. Oh sure, so there wouldn't be an Enterprise...wait...DS9 and Voyager already blazed that trail.

Get with it Paramount!

I'm not really a fan of the Deadalus class ship design either, but a show in this era would make a great excuse for these [link] [link] and [link] to appear which to me look really cool.
