Ah, don'tpanic, PLEASE post a battle report . . . solely of course, so that we can get a feeling for how a scenario might play out (such as valiant Klingons whomping on those "goody two shoe" Federation wusses).

Movie era was always my favorite b/c of the impact Star Trek II had on me as a kid. It also happens to be the era for which I have the most miniatures, so that is what we were playing.
No reason that whenever these come out you couldn't design original series ships with them. Question is, how much interest is there going to be in playing original series ship against movie era ships?
Reason for that being, if nobody is ever going to do crossovers, you could probably get away with using the same stats for both, since it will all be internally consistent. If you want to mix time periods, then you have to have rules that reflect the tech advance between the two. Got some ideas on that already, but not sure if its worth pursuing, at the expense of other projects.
I don't think mixing periods works very well for Trek, at least in other rules. I prefer to normalize each period against the relevant Enterprise. But there are interesting differences between TOS and Enterprise tech.
