I'm interested, but I have a few questions:
1) Is a picture required. Finding a fitting image for my characters is often a bit of a headache, especially when restricted to real people. I can try to find one if I need to, but I'm wondering if a description would suffice?
2) Are there any established political situations we should be aware of or are we making it up as we go along? Like... are the Klingons and Federation on good terms, or at war, or what? What about the Romulans? Has Starfleet encountered the Borg yet?
