Star Trek: Infinite Dynasty as the Federation - Spoilers - Finished Won!!!

Hello awesome folks! I hope that your day is going super mega well! Star Trek: Infinite is recently released game based on Stellaris. I just picked it up and it might be a good dynasty. I have watched some reviews and playthroughs that ignore the plot to avoid spoilers. So, here is my question - yes plot points or no plot points?

There are four playable factions here in ST:I. The Federation, Romulans, Klingons and Cardassians. I’m probably leaning towards The Federation, but they cannot declare war on anything. They are all about incorporating independent factions into the Federation. I have gone entire dynasties of Stellaris with DOWing since I love exploring and colonizing the game, so that won’t be an issue. This is set in the era of TNG. Basically the Federation is all about diplomacy, the Romulans about intrigue, the Klingons about combat and the Cardassians about power.

Here's info about the game from Paradox:

https://www.paradoxinteractive.com/games/star-trek-infinite/about


Please note that this game is just released two months ago, so there is no ST:I wiki yet. I am just doing this myself.

Changes from Stellaris:

The minerals and rare stuff is different
Your ships are crewed by officers you train and then keep in a pool. As officers die your ships will become harder to function.
Every faction has a Mission Tree like EU4.
The perks are much smaller options.
There is just one endgame crisis (The Borg) but it happens the entire game.
This is a story based game, not a game based game.
You start out with a huge empire not just one system.
Ships don’t have armor, but shields
You can create trade and turn it into alloys
It looks like the Federation can DOW Humiliation Wars only. You can reform under Section 31 in your Mission Tree to change that.
All ships have warp, gone are space lanes and defensible choke points. Which I loved by the by.
Every Faction has it’s own Tradition Tree
Every Faction starts with four planets that are colonized. For the Federation, this is the four founder homeworld (Humans, Vulcans, Tellarites, Andorians)


Points to Note about the Federation:


You have to build the Enterprise to do a bunch of the Mission Tree stuff knocked out.
In order to win as the Federation, you need to have brought in 12 smaller factions like the Betazeds.
As you bring in minor nations, the Federation permanently gains their Civic bonus; you get their Civics with other nations by occupancy them like the Cardassians with Bajor.
The Federation is the best science nation and exploration nation which were key parts of Stellaris
ASpec says to make nice with the Romulans for “Reasons “in his walkthrough



Points about the Game:


This is a flavor first game and many critics and fans are pointing out where flavor doesn’t work mechanically. Although there are some issues like Data dying of old age. Cloaks don’t seem to work but are in the game.

Sometimes there are quests, mission trees, and more that won’t be able to be finished due to stuff. One Federation reviewer mentions that they couldn’t do an early Borg mission since it was in Cardassian space and they didn’t have access to them no matter how nice they were, they couldn’t get them to open up borders.

Please note that the Cardassians and Klingons can only incorporate militarily, the Federation only dip, but Romulans both, and the first to 12 wins. The Romulans are obviously better than the other options for that win-con.

I’ve heard from critics about some release day bugs, but we are seven updates since, and the release day reviews were 57% mixed on Steam but last 30 days are 71%. Normally I wouldn’t touch a Paradox Grand Strategy this soon after release, but they are just publishing, it’s developed by Nimble Giant and then they used a later build of Stellaris to build up their nation so my hope is that it’s more polished than a normal Paradox Grand Strategy this soon after release.

Federation Traits and Abilities:


Cosmologist
- -25% Science Ship Build Speed, +33% Anomaly research speed
Pioneer – Colony Ship Build Cost -35%, Colony Development Speed - +25%
High Education - +1 Recruitable Scientists cap, +15% Pop Growth from Immigration
Diplomatic Expertise - +30 Opinion after First Contact protocols, +2 Envoy Approvals with Minor Powers.

Government Type:


Federated Democracy – Elections held every ten years, -25% Dip Influence Cost

The game starts in the year 2346 January 1st, about 20 years prior to TNG beginning.



Here’s a screen shot of the Map with us on the bottom. You can see Bajor between us and the Cardassians to our left, the Klingons to our right, the four planet Neutral Zone between us and the Romulans above us, and then the Betazeds below us in Beta Zeta. You can also see our resources like Deuterium to the left of our Energy Credits in the upper left corner and then the key Stellaris stat of Empire Spread and we have 90 of 115 so we are pretty close by.

I start Techs in three places:

Physics – Corrosion Beam – 57 months, gives us Cutting Beam
Society – Fast-Tracked Training – Takes 65 month, gives us +10% monthly Officer Training, and +10 Officers.
Engineering – Anti-Matter Recycling – We get Power Cores, and then it’ll take 57 months

Our four Planets:

Earth – Homeworld of Fed, in the Sol System, Class M Continental Planet, Planet Size 22, it has Research Laboratories, Starfleet Academy and Planetary Admin with space for two more. It has 2 available jobs we’ll grow into. I set my Governor Ship to improve basic workers here.

Andoria
– Andorian HW, in the Procyon System, Class M Arctic World, Planet Size 14, 2 Available Job, it has Planetary Admin and space for 4 more, 12 Energy, 9 Ag, 10 Industrial Districts

Vulcan
– Vulcan HW, Eridani System, Class M Arid World, 18 space, 2 open jobs, Planetary Admin here as well as space for 3 more. 8 Ag, 13 Indust, 5 Energy,

Tellar Prime
– Tellarite HW, Class M Alpine, in Cygni system, space for 22, 2 open jobs, 3 open building spots, and then Planetary Admin building. 15 Ag, 17 Industrial, 9 Energy districts


I need to designate my Andoria, Vulcan and Tellar Prime as key planets, so one should be mining, one agricultural and one energy our base three things to make from those. Who has the most of those three districts? The most Energy is Andoria with 12. The most Ag is Tellar Prime with 15 but they are also the most Industrial with 17. That means Vulcan will either be 13 Industrial which is my mid-state and Tellar Prime Ag or Ag with but 8 spots since they are Arid. So I make these planets the specialists of my Empire – Tellar Prime – Ag; Andoria – Energy; Vulcan – Mining

As you can see, I have two open planets in my area that no one has colonized:

Risa – Class M Gaia, World, in the Epsilon Ceti System, planet size 8 – anyone has a 100% suitably for Gaia world.

Denobula – In the Mantichoras System, Class M Tundra, size 7.We all have 80% suitability here.

Let’s turn to the Federation Mission Tree Early Game:



I have zoomed in on our First Mission “Where No One has Gone Before” which needs two Science Ships captained and 10 systems surveyed. I have one. Then that unlocks “Build the Enterprise” which needs massive 3400 Alloys and then “Understand the Unknown” which needs 5 Anomalies researched. As you can see, once we have Built the Enterprise we unlock a lot of missions that will give us Enterprise crews.

Now let’s turn to the mid-game Mission Tree:



Here you can see our branched and ahistorical choices like “Empowering Section 31.” Or you can
“Grow the Federation.”

Now here are the late game Missions:



As you can see, one is Bajoran Membership. You have to have incorporated Bajor and a bunch of other things like reducing unrest and getting it’s population up.

So, since my first Mission is to have two Science Ships crewed and exploring with a Captain, let’s star working on building one in Sol’s Spacedock One. A new Science Ship of the Russell Design will normally cost me 100 Alloys but with my cultures -25% cost it’s just 75 Alloys but I don’t have any. But I can trade to make it. I swap 400 energy which are credits for 75, and then order it made. It should take 48 days

I order my current Science Vessel and Captain to scout the four unknown systems between us, the Romulans and the Klingons.

I order my Construction Ship to start building two Mining Stations at 100 Minerals per in Sol for a 3 energy and 3 mineral set up. They have an upkeep of one Energy, and I’ll need to keep Minerals open for expansion, so I won’t dig too deep here yet.

So it looks like ships use Deuterium for their upkeep, and I’ll need to up that which is at +15 right now. There is a star nearby with 5 unmined in Ardana I’ll go ahead and do with the Construction ship since one energy into 5 of another resource seems like good math. It looks like Alloys are also used by Ships as upkeep too.

So in order to Colonize I need 1300 Food and 97.5 Alloys.

Looks like we are guaranteeing the independence of the Betazeds.

I am ready to start moving forward with the game!

Jan 12 – I get a request from the Betazed Houses to set up an Embassy and we agree

Jan 28 – The Romulans are supporting the Independence of Bajor. I do so as well now that I have an ally

Feb 1 – The Event “The Ashes of Khitomer” happens. The brutal ambush by Romulans on the Klingon Khitomer happens. The relative peace of the last 50 years is shattered. How do I want to approach strangers?

I have two options:

1. Be Proactive- I will greet new civilizations with respect and warmth
2. Be Cautious – I will greet new civilizations with cautiousness.

These set my First Contact Policy I choose Proactive.

I unlock the USS Cerritos and 2nd Contact Protocols. I can send it to do Second Contact stuff and then it’s also a Science Ship. I send it to Beta Zeta to 2nd Contact the Betazeds

Feb 12 – Research Pact offered by Betazeds, I agree!

Feb 15 - I set up an Embassy with the Klingons

Mar 1 – Event – The Bottom of the Plot – Our spies are trying to figure out what happened in Khitomer so they are unavailable for a while.

Mar 12 – I accept a Commercial Pact option with the Betazed Houses

Mar 15 – Great news! The Klingons support Bajoran Independence too!

Mar 23- I set up an Embassy with the Romulans.

Sept 23 – Our Construction Ship arrives in Ardana

Dec 12 – My Science Ship called the USS Naweth City is ready. A new Scientist costs 1000 Energy and I have 941 so I swap 100 Food for 70 Energy. I send him to the area around Beta Zeta in the opposite direction

Mar 27, 2347 – My Construction Ship is done in Ardana I order it to Wolf 357 where my Science ship is researching with a planet to incorporate.

May 17 – We finish studying Wolf 357, and my ship heads to the next system. My Con Ship needs 100 Alloy and 86 influence, so instead I order it to the 4 Deuterium son of Bethel to start mining

Aug 2 – We finish surveying the next system over from Wolf 357 which is a Highway Node we have discovered, I order an investigation. We unlock the tech “Highway Fluctuations Scanner” and can enter Warp Highways

Nov 29 – We discover an anomaly in Dorasi next to the Romulans, this is difficult and will take me 226 days, but I do so.

Dec 5 – We have enough Unity to unlock my first Tradition! What do I want? Let’s look at my options:



You can see my Federation specific Traditions to the left, and then the six categories, each which is mutually exclusive to the one on the other side. I am zooming in on the Research one I like here, so I grab it!

My Mining Station is done, next I grab 3 Energy in 61 Cygni

Right now my spread is now 92/115

I have two diplomats Giovanni Johnson who I assign to make nice with the Romulans and Karth’ya Elan an Andorian to make nice with the Betazeds

It looks like we have open borders with just the Klingons

13 Feb, 2348 – We discover an anomaly in the system between us and Beta Zeta called Bredara at the planet there Gral this is a routine difficulty and should just take 76 days, I send my Scout Ship to research it.

22 Mar – Event – A Substantial Rumor – The Gral anomaly is done! The rumors of an Abandoned Laboratory on Bredara Iva are true! I have a few options, and I can choose to gain 100 Dilithium a rare mineral or this planet gets a new trait, and there are three habitable planets here, so giving one anew trait would be nice. Or getting a rare mineral you have to get in a system would be nice too. I do the trait and it gains the trait “Behemoic Ammonite Fossils”

27 Mar – Anomaly found in Bredara again, I start it, it’s also routine and takes 76 days

7 June - Construction done on 61 Cyngi, next is a 2 energy Mining Station in Risa that will net me one.

29 July – I now have enough food and alloys to send my first colonization fleet to Risa since it’s a Gaea world with 100 suitability and the Tellarites who are bad at war but great leaders are leading our expedition. That will raise my spread.

13 Aug – Event – Anomaly in Dorasi - Abundance of Life in our Galaxy – We have found so much life out there after the Vulcans contacted us. I can gain 1500 research or 500 energy credits. I like both, my energy right now is 785. I do research.

28 Aug – Event – Stellar Nursery – Anomaly in Bredara – The young age of the Star here as well as it; neighbors suggest this star here is a Stellar Nursery. I have two choices – gain 393 minerals or 2350 research. I have 942 minerals and make 39 monthly, so that’s fine and dandy and I use that for construction. I do the research here too.

My two Science Ship leaders gain a level.

16 Oct - I get a Migration Treaty from the Betazed Houses but I decline since it costs Flu to upkeep which I need to grab systems.

18 Nov – We finish surveying Dorasi! This system just has no resources or planets to bring in, but there is another anomaly here I move to start. This is next to the Klingon Empire

11 Dec – Contraction done in Risa, next I want to send my Ship to bring in Wolf 359 with it’s colonizable planet. But it’ll take 86 flu and I have 75, so I head there now to get ready for the future bring in.

5 Feb, 2349 – Reseach finished of Corrosion Beams and then Antimatter Recycling. Next for Physics is Subspace Probe Longs to give us Subspace Sensors and then it’ll take 29 months and then for Engineering it’s Mineral Ore Refining to let me build on planets Mineral Processing Facilities and then it’ll take 40 months

7 Apr – I accept from the Betazeds an offer for a Protection Pact that will help us both since it doesn’t take influence.

9 Apr – Event – Anomaly in Dorasi – Cryocapsule - We find a Cryocapsule in a frosted planet. Do I open it (gain 1560 research) or protect my crew and open carefully ( gain500 unity) – I choose the latter since unity gives me tradition. We get an event about finding a Cryolog and get 3135 research. Our science ship leaves Dorasi!

11 May – Our president gained a level.

6 June – Reseach done in Fast-Tracked Training, next is Interplanar Exploratory Programs which gives me another Envoy to send out and then unlocks the Prosperity Accords edict. This should be done in 34 months

I finish exploring Bredara next to the Beta Zeta HW and then it has three habitable planets including one Gaia, so after I finish Wolf 359, if there is nothing else in the final central place to bring in, it will be 2nd or 3rd on my expansion target queues.

Risa has started colonizing and we have 97 spread

29 July – Anomaly discovered in the Ka’Tula system next to us and the final of four in that area. I start research which should take 64 days

1 Sept – I have enough Unity for the 2nd tradition. What do I want here?

The next Research options are:


Empiricism -
Which gives me +2 science leader cap and then +25% survey of planets speed,

Scientific Enlightenment - Gives all Scientists of mine another trait. Every leader has just one trait.

Federation tradition:

Material Abundance
- From replicators gives me +20 spread for each captial building not on my HW

Pioneers – Which gives me +20 pop growth and +25 speed for building science and construction ships.

I like Material Abundance to increase my spread rate and then both Science traditions. Since Vulcans live another 100 years, hiring Vulcan scientists moving forward would make sense with that Empiricism. Let’s do Scientific Enlightenment.

20 Oct – Event - Anomaly in Ka’Tula – Planted Trap – Our crew discovered a great smelling forest on Ku’Tula IV they explore and are predatory in nature. I get 2350 research

I start expanding into the Wolf 359 System.

11 Jan, 3350 – Event – The Khitomer Report - We finish spying into what happened. Our agents found notes that suggest it was the House of Mogh that was involved. Do I want to turn them over to the Klingon Empire or no? If so, I gain +50 relations with the Klingons and gain 784 research, if not I gain 50 intel with the Klingons and then 371 unity. Either way I get a spy and end the Khitomer aftershock. I always love free unity, but I feel that the free sharing of knowledge is more Federation. And a boost of 50 reactions cannot be overlooked for free. Which do I want? I choose the former and share the logs

25 April – Wolf 359 incorporated into the Federation! Our growth rises to 100 out of 115. This has one 2 mineral station and the star is just one Deuterium so this was all about grabbing the colonizable world.

Wolf 359 VI
– Class M Desert world, size 12, has 80% colonization rates from my people.

I have enough Alloys to bring Bredara into my nation but my influence is just 39. Any new mining or research posts to make? Andor has a 5 Research Sun I could spend 1 energy a month collecting, so I head there.

6 June – We finish surveying the star system to the bottom of Bajor called Valo. It has a Class D Volcano world with a huge 22 space but just 30% livability for our species.

3 Sept – We finish surveying Ka’Tula of the four systems next to us, it has no major mines or planets to colonize like Dorasi. I head south and will leave this to the Klingons or Romulans to expand into. I send my science ship near Beta Zeta for explorations.

9 Sept – Event – Our Place in the Universe – We are organic lifeforms which such limited lives to explore stuff. I choose to have us work together and we get for 10 years +20 speed of warping

23 Nov – Research Station finished in Andor, I send my ship to wait in Bredara! This one will cost 103 influence to bring in.

24 Dec – Event – Subspace Disturbance – A massive subspace disturbance is coming through the Neutral Zone. I have two options – Monitor (+2000 research) or welcome new life (+3000 unity!!). I choose the latter obviously.

1, Jan 3351 - I unlock a new Tradition! What do I want this time? I choose Procedural Rigor which was unlocked with Scientific Enlightenment which gives me +15 anomaly discovery and then +5% research speed.

2 Feb – Event – Memory Alpha – We have a protection movement formed by Prof. Eawood Mull who wants to start protection of our key library Memory Alpha from psychic attacks. I can participate and spend 100 energy and then unlock a Special Research Project called Mind Program or I can dismiss and gain 500 unity. I like both, new research options or boosted unity for my traditions. I participate, and have a fast chance to science for a year in Denobula, I send my science ship from surveying Micara over to research

23 Apr – We arrive and begin to research it

6 May – Research done on Subspace Probe Logs. Next is Shield Frequency Bypassing taking 83 months, which gives me a Shield Disrupter on ships. All of these were very long

22 June – We finish surveying Minorva left of Beta Zeta and with a Class N Scalding World that has a size 10 we cannot colonize right now.

12 July – Our science ship arrives in the Gemsa system. I can assign an envoy to bring about First Contact with the new species here. I assign Giovanni from making nice with the Romulans to this creature.

19 July – Event – How shall we Treat Them? – How do we treat new members of our society? With trust or suspicion I choose trust

Our Science Ship died

I order another built

12 Sept – Event – The Mirror Gazes Back – We were founded on the ideals of peace and understanding and in the post-Khitomer era what will be choose? We will not compromise – we gain 1500 unity, fear leads the way we gain 500 energy. I choose no compromise

I can unlock a new tradition – what do I want? I choose the next Science one! Looks like I just unlocked Science the first time, so I grab the one I showed you first.It looks like I need to unlock Progress to take the Federation traditions just like in Stellaris.

5 Dec – Risa is now our next colony! What do I want to build here? It has one free space, a Reassembled Transport Ship Shelter as it’s home and then one free job. I could make it an Ag world since that’s its biggest districts with 10 but can only build 7 due to it’s size. I choose Ag World here as well!

Refresh me about something:

Do you know it's the final of 4 in the area because you've surveyed the system otherwise and found no others? Or does it tell you "hey, there are four anamolies here" and this is the 4th one you've surveyed?

Hello! Sorry, that's poor wording on my part, this was the 4th System of the four central ones to be surveyed by us, not the 4th anomaly in that system.

1 Jan, 3352 - Risa finishing reminds me to check in on my other 4 planets. Anything need to build there? Do they still have open jobs or unemployed pops? Let’s check! Also, you don’t want to build early for planets just to build, you will take needed resources and then expensive upkeep. I also want to check and see if our new Science Ship is ready too! Also, do I have the stuff to start colonizing Wolf 359 VI? I would do it next since both are 80% but it’s bigger.

Non-Risa Planets:


Earth –
4 unemployed pops. I build here one Energy District at 300 minerals and two jobs and Replicator one per planet for 400 and two energy upkeep that makes two Artisan jobs that make a bunch of stuff in small doses. I also order for the next two people 500 for an Industrial District with 2 energy used and makes one Artisan and one person who turns minerals into alloys

Andoria
– Energy planet, 1 unemployed 2, I build here one Energy District two make two jobs

Tellar Prime
– Mining World, 1 unemployed, I order here a Mining District for two jobs at a cost of 300.

Vulcan – Ag World, 1 unemployed pop, I order here a Ag District for 300 and two farmers and then two energy upkeep.

That leaves me just 394 minerals

Science Ship
– Yes, the USS Montreal has been built, I spend 750 for a Scientist and order it to near Beta Zeta again.

Colony – I need 200 more food. I trade 260 energy for Food since I have more than 3k, and then I order a Colony Ship here. I send the Militarist Andorian since they are good in battles and it’s on the border.

5 June – We finish researching the Interplanetary Study Programs tech! Next is Recruitment Outreach Program which increases our level cap by 1 and Generals leader hirable cap by one and it’ll be done in around 34 months. I send my new Envoy named Aenella Malkren to make nice with the Romulans again.

18 June – Our research project for Memory Alpha called Mind Program is done and I gained 100 research and 500 unity

5 July – A Sensor Alert happens near Sol and that means that there are Spies there. I order my Construction Fleet in Bredara to start incorporating it.

6 August – We finish researching Mineral Ore Refining! Next is Shipyard Overhaul that will take just 38 months and then gives me -15% Ship Upkeep

18 Oct – We finish incorporating Bredara as my 2nd new system between us and Beta Zeta. It has three inhabitable planets and one Terraformable one later. I have a two mining place and 2 research place – not worth it right now.

Bredara:

Bredara Ia – This moon of my first planet is Class L Savanna world with just 50% habitability for my folks but a size of 10. It’s rich in Uranium and would be a great Energy World

Bredara IVa – Also a moon of a planet, this is Class L Arid world with a fat size of 15, also just 50% suitability. This has the Behemotic Fossils that would give Researchers here boosted research and unity.

Bredara VIIa
– This is also a moon with Class M Gaia, suitability of 100, and then size of 10. This is probably an Ag or Energy World with those boosts the same size

Bredara Va – Frozen world, Class K, size 10, could be terraformed.


Great addition! Next I send this Con Ship to Valo next door with the low habilility but big world that will cost 86 flu to bring in

3 Dec – Event – Incoming Transmission – From my Governor who wants to head to Risa a year after formation with the event of throwing an Inauguration Party here. I send him, what will I need to make this happen? I send my Governor Ship from Earth to here.

2 Feb, 3353 – We arrive at Risa and begin starting our new colony’s inauguration event!

It looks like we have just started Wolf 359 next!

3 Mar – Incoming Transmission - A promising young StarFleet officer named Alynna Nechayev arrives and we can recruit her for 300 unity instead of 1000 energy. I do so and she joins us. She is a 52 year old Admiral with the trait Sniper. I hand her my military navy in Sol.

15 May – I finish exploring the star system called Dorvan below Cardassia and left of Bajor with two low suitability Class L and Class D but it’s far away.

7 Sept – We finish exploring the system of Micara left of Valo, near us with two habitable planets one of which is a nicer Class M.

We finalize First Contact with the Naucisaans! They have three systems left of the Betazeds and below Valo and Micara, I send my Con Ship to Micara because I don’t want to lose a Class M to them expanding that way. That’s 103 influence to make work. I welcome them with open arms and gain 10 flu

25 Sept – Celebration in Risa done! I send him back to Sol to improve basic stuff. We gain 80 flu from this! I have a spread of 113. I send my Con Ship to bring in Micara

1 Nov – I have enough unity for my next Tradition and I unlock the Progress tradition of the Starfleet special stuff which gives me the ability to take the spread stuff later

I order Giovanni Johnson to make nice with Bajor.

1 Jan, 3354 – Looks like I didn’t send my Governor Ship back, so I send it now.

2 Feb – Anomaly in the Norol System, I start, it should take around 64 days

21 Feb – Micara is ours! Our spread moves up to 116 one more than 115

Micara - I order a Mining Station at a 3 Energy place here.

Micara Planets:

Micara BIa
Around the 2nd star in this system is this moon. It’s a big Class L Ocean world with 15 size. It has a trait called Necleogenic Currents that makes my energy production here get +3 per tech, so that’s an Energy world. This has 50% habitability

Micara Va
– This moon around the first star is Class M, Arid, smaller 10 size, 80 habitability, it doesn’t have more than 7 districts of any type, none of which are base types, which are very small like 3 Energy and 4 Minerals.

Micara Va is next after the Gaia world over Denobula due to three bigger size.

4 April – Event – Chromatic Vortex – Norol Anomaly - We investigate a shuttle in orbit at Norol IIa, we come across a group of people on the shuttle guarding a dormant chromatic vortex. I have three options: Resupply the Vortex - I pay 1000 energy but gain 40 flu; Detain them for Study- I gain 1600 research; and Scan the Vortex from Far – I get 500 unity. I love the unity and flu gains, and I have 4.4k energy so I could spend it. Hmm. I need unity for the tradition that unlocks spread boosts and then flu to spread. I do the unity booster third option.

9 June – We find another anomaly in the Norol system, again rudimentary level and 55 days

25 July – Construction finished on Mining Station in Micara. To bring in Valo with the big rough 30% planet is 87 influence and I have 52. To bring in Dorvan with the two planets one 50% and one worse to the bottom of the Cardassians and left of Bajor and above Micara is 104. Valo is a race with the Naucisaans and Dorvan with the Cardassians. None are very eligible here. I send my ship to Dorvan since both scouts to it and Micara’s left have planets.

8 Aug – Event – Citizens Abuzz – Our citizens are all a-twitter after our first contact with the Naucisaans. We gain +5% research speed for five years

10 Aug – Event – Noral Anomaly – Failed Genesis – We find a prototype of the Genesis Torpedo here. I can choose to gain 500 food or unity, I choose the latter

17 Oct – I have two planets with unemployed people – Risa with 2 so I build here a an Ag District for 300 minerals, one energy two jobs since it’s an Ag world and Andoria with one unemployed person so I build here an Energy district for 300, two jobs since it’s my Energy world

6 Nov – Anomaly in Norol for a third time, I do it again, this time for 51 days

27 Dec - We finish our Society tech! Next is Simulator Holodecks which unlocks that. It should take around 65 months

12 Jan, 3355 – Event – Ride or Die – Norol Anomaly - The Senior Physicist on our vassal has called for our aid to research and discovers an unusual cloud mad of Matreon gas. I have two choices to research it for study to gain +2294 research or to bottle for sale for 500 credits. I choose research!

15 Feb – Anomaly detected in Kirama System which will take a longer 190 days to do, but I order it.

23 Feb – A fourth Anomaly in Norol for 51 days starts

6 Mar – Wolf 359 is settled!

Wolf 359 Prime –
Class M, Desert, 12 size, 1 open job, Reassembled Transport Ship Shelter, has a massive 11 Mining districts, but farmers here make 2 amenities instead of Food due to the Sandfire Deserts trait. I choose to make this a Mining World

I spend 1.3k food to colonize the Gaia world of Bredara VIIa – I send here Humans

30 Apr – Event – Norol Anomaly – Oh, Worms – We are scouting out the cave system on Norol, a group goes missing for a while, and then it seems like flesh-eating cave worms got to them and are harvesting a rare mineral called Tetryons. I have two options – Tag and Study them for 1500 research boost or harvest and get 300 Tetryons, I choose the latter.

6 Aug – We finish researching the Shipyard Overhaul! Next is Celestial-Holo Planning for 48 months with gives us -15% cost for both buildings and districts.

14 Aug – Event – The Zeitgeist Shifts – The mood after First Contact is shifting. I have two options: Continue to seek out new life and 50% chance of 500 unity or 1500 research, or Keep Vigilant and gain boosted ship speeds! I choose the first and gained research.

12 Sept – Event – Anomaly Kirama – Beneath the Wasteland - Humanoid life has been discovered in the tunnels of Kirama! They just have access to basic tech, and are pretty primitive. It looks like their civilization was destroyed long ago in a nuclear war. Do I want to contact them and spend 100 credits to initiate First Contact or hold with the prime directive and not and gain 1529 research from studying them. I choose to contact them since they were once advanced.

25 Sept – Norol is done surveying! It has three planets all of the Class D type, at 30%, is below the Cardassians and left of Dorvan.

I have finished the First Mission on the Tree called “Where No One has Gone Before” and I get for 10 years +20% anomaly discovery chance and -10% anomaly speed. I unlock Understand the Unknown and Build the Enterprise. The first needs for me to have investigated at least 5 anomalies and I have done 9. We finish this and gain 2500 research and 1500 unity. That unlocks First Contact and I need to have contacted 5 minor powers and we are at 2. For the Enterprise I need 3500 alloys and I have 620 and then spend them a lot for ships, colonizations and making new stations to bring in new systems.

I can purchase the next tradition, since I just opened Progress, this time I go the spread helping Material Abundance and now I need to start building on my non-HWs

12 Oct – Event – You Shall Be as Gods – In Kirama we contact, begin being worshipped as gods, and we have come across a tablet - and I have two options – inscribe, spend 200 Energy, or Do Not Dispel their illusions and gain 100 alloy, which I need to save up for the Enterprise. I translate the inscription.

13 Nov -Event – A Canticle for Who – We translate and these chips are edible and we have 500 food and 300 energy

7 Jan, 2356 – I order my Con Ship to bring in Dorvan! This costs 103 flu and I had 104. We have a campaign underway to elect a new president. This is the 10 year anniversary, want to see the maps?

Let’s start with a zoomed out picture:



Here, as you can see, are the new Naucisaans which are the Stellaris hirable Mercs. You can buy an Admiral or hire a fleet to fight for you or to Raid an enemy. You can see everyone here.

Next let’s do a zoomed in pic of my stuff.



Here you can see my stuff and then my discovered places, and my three new holdings. You can see that none of my planets are having unemployed dorks. You can see my stuff in the upper left corner, and then my expansion to the bottom in Bredara and Micara and up to Wolf 359. See that higher spread cap that rose from 115 to 175? You can also see my Colony Ship on the way to Bredara. Hope that helps!

I like my current President named T’Pragh since she is just 54 years old an Vulcan so she could rule for a while as a Vulcan and she is running for Scientific Advancement to give my scientists +5% research speed. There are three other candidates, two of which are running on Education Reform to give +50% leader EXP gain (my Governor Anders Nuzzo and Scientist Gral) which are Human and Tellarite respectively and one with Labor Reform to give me +5% Production called Catalina Okafor who is also Human and my Physics Research person. All are in the mid-20s. I also like Labor Reform so she’s my 2nd choice. The Election is to be held on April 1

21 Mar – Event – Early Terraformers – In Bredara – Early Terraforming equipment has been found in the Wastelands of Bredara I which is Class H Barren world which is uninhabitable, it was by a group of Clones. I have three options – Finish what they started – We get a special project called “Terraforming the Impossible”; the middle is Salvage the equipment and I gain a massive 500 Alloys! The last is to leave it be and this planet gains +3 Research to put a Research Station around. I like all three. I need Alloys bad to get 3500, and a free 500 here is massive. I also want to point out that my I planet is not one of the here colonizable but it’s the Moon around it, so that’s nice too. The long term best option is clearly getting a Terraformable Planet after the Special Project. I think the 500 Alloys could push me from 603 to more than 1100, and since I am only making 13/month, that’s years of Alloys and would roughly get me 1/3rd of the way there, and I could start swapping other things for it. I know it’s the short term play, but I need those Alloys, and then I can build the Enterprise-D and finish my Mission. And what happens if I finish my Mission and then need to finish Terraforming it and then it’s just a 30% world or a Terraformable World I can incorporate here, I don’t know for sure what would happen and I know what the Alloys would do for sure. So I do the Alloys since I am no worse off than I was.

1 April – Gral is elected our new President!

Kirama System finished surveying! It’s up over the Naucisaans and left of Micara and has two Class M worlds one of which is Gaea. I need to hire a new Scientist for Gral’s Ship and I spend 1k energy for Andorian Viras Shrey’an for the USS Naweeth City.

Construction finished in Dorvan! It has 2 Mining station, 3 Deuterium Star, then those two low rent planets! I now have 127 spread

Dorvan:

Dorvan IV – Class D, 30% habitability, Tundra, size 8,7 Mining Districts are it’s biggest so it’s likely be a Mining World.

Dorvan V – Class L Continental World, size of 9, suitability at just 50%, it’s biggest of the core three is Ag but just at 4.

I order my Con Ship to Norol which has three bad worlds but just 86 flu to bring in

I buy 250 Alloys for 1417 Energy

I need jobs in Tellar Prime, Vulcan and Risa – I order there Ag District for Vulcan, Mining District for Tellar Prime and then for Risa also an Ag District

I have 1500 Food, enough for another Colony. I want to order it to Micara for my Gaea World but we lost that colonial trait with my new President gone and it’s now 2k Food and then a massive 200 Alloys instead

6 Aug – I get an Incoming Transmission from Governor about having a fun Wolf 359 Prime event there, and I send him from Sol to Wolf 359 to celebrate it’s one year anniversary.

Bredara has started colonizing

10 Aug – Anomaly in Astra Menta takes around 75 days

16 Oct – The Governor arrives at Wolf 359 Prime

I swap 777 Energy for another 250 Alloys.

10 Nov – Event – Astra Menta – Biopod – We find a biomedically sealed Biopod on Astra Menta Iva. What do I want to do with it? It looks like a Terraforming device! I have two options, both awesome! Open it and the world becomes inhabitable or send it home and gain the Terraforming tech! Either works here, but I choose the Terraforming Tech.

Terraforming costs 2k Energy, takes 10 years and updates a world to a better class. For example, I could Terraform Bredara Iva from Class L at 50% to Class M at 80, I could do Dorvan IV and move from Class D to Class L. I spend 2k to Terraform Dorvan V, but this will only take 1800 days.

1 Dec – Event – Their Roots run Deep – After 5 years, Risa’s old growth forests are mostly depleted. I can try to preserve the forest and spend 300 energy and gain 250 unity or not and lose 250 unity. I choose to protect them.

1 Apr, 3357 – Anomaly discovered in the Sikorn system, I will take 89 days off from his survey to research it.

29 Apr – We finish at Wolf 359 Prime and gain 80 flu! That’s enough for Norol and I spend 100 Alloys and 86 flu to bring it in.

1 June – I now have 2.2k Food with a buffer, so do I want to spend 150 Alloys and 2k food to set up a colony? I do so and send a Colony Ship to Micara Va, with Andorians on this border world with the Naucisaans.

To buy 250 Alloys is a massive 1677 energy, so this will take a while!

15 July – Event, Sikorn Anomaly – Eternal Eclipse – Overlapping eclipses keep Sikorn Iva perpetually in shadow. There are ancient glyphs carved into the side of them Mountain here. I can gain 50 Gravitons or this world gains +3 Mining station here. I choose the 50 rare stuff

24 July - I finish surveying Astra Menta – this has one Class L planet with 50% but it’s in the plasma starfield where ships take 50 damage entering. I won’t move here any time soon

4 Aug – Reseach done for Shield Frequency Bypassing. Next is Orbital Tracking Beams which gives us +10 research and mining from stations’ and it’ll take 60 months

16 Aug – Construction finished in Norol!

Norol - This has a 4 Energy Star which I move to make a Mining Station at, a 2 minerals planet, and then three bad planets, below the Cardassians, left of Dorvan

Norol Planets
:

Norol III – Class D, Savannah world, massive 22 size, 30% suitability, with a massive 10 Energy distracts this is a good Energy World.

Norol IIIa
– That planet’s smaller moon, smaller size 12, 30%, Class D Ocean, just 5 Ags to make this an Ag World.

Norol BIIa –The secondary star’s moon is also Class D moon with a size of 12, Savanna World, this also has the Behemotic Fossils and would be a good Research world

26 Sept - I finish surveying Silkorn below Cardassia and left of Norol with Class D and L worlds and then a Terraformable one too. There is a final Anomaly here to take a massive 223 days I start, This is also in the Plasma Starfield

10 Nov – Anomaly in the Mash’gar system, it will take 134 days

7 Dec – Construction finished in Norol. I order this ship to Kirama which will take 86 flu to bring in.

Event – Neural Root Network – On Risa, after guarding the Forest, we gain 1500 unity!

3 Jan, 3358 – I need to up my Alloy production to get to 3500 in order to build my Enterprise D. We are around 8 years before TNG began, and 12 years into the game and my Alloy production is per month is 17/month with 2 used for my ship upkeep. With recent Alloy boosts from events and pays, I have 1911. But I use them a lot, for making a Colony Ship at 150, or grabbing a new system with 100, or building ships like Science Ships. Also for Starbase upgrades and Starbase buildings and modules. You can turn Minerals into Alloys with an Industrialist District, and then just one job, and then you can build a Forge to cost 400, upkeep 2, and then make two of those jobs. They have a limit of 1/planet. So, this isn’t easy. I am making 47 Minerals and then I have 2k. My energy is making 98/month. I am fine by normal Stellaris standards. I have a few early planets and systems all over there. But I need to invest into Alloy production since it’s pricey to swap too with energy credits on the market, so I need to make it after all! Once I start opening up jobs in planets, I’ll start building Forges and Industrial Districts.

Can I set up a trade deal with the Romulans or Betazeds to get monthly Alloys for something like Food? I could trade monthly 30 food for 5 Alloys that’s not good. We are friendly with the Betazeds and cordial with the Romulans, by the by. I offer to establish an embassy with the Cardassians.

27 Jan – We set up an embassy with the Cardassians!

5 Apr – Event – Mash’gar Anomaly – Clones Ahoy! – After launching a lengthy investigation our scientists eventually located the shipwreck they were investigating and we find bodies all over of clones. I can loot them and gain 200 Alloys or take them home to research for 1500 research I choose the first!

9 May – Event – Sikorn Anomaly – Chaotic Space – The fracture in space we were investigating into a rupture into Chaotic Space roughly two light years across, I spend 100 energy to move closer.

Event – Chaotic Conundrum – We get closer and then our ship is rocked by energies as we close. We encounter a friendly thing in Chaotic space that saves our ship. I send them a thank-you-note and that opens up a special project called “Unknown Coordinates”

11 Oct – We finish the research of Celestial Holo-Planning! Next is Improved Matter-Energy Conversion to give me the building Replicator Halls for my planets. It’ll take 39 months

28 Oct – A new system appears on my charts. I send the Cerritos to survey it it’s near Valo

3 Nov – I start building the Kirama system.

Our colony in Micara begins

12 Nov – Andoria and Wolf 359 are down jobs so I build an Industrialist District in Wolf 359 and move it from Mining to Forge world, and then in Andoria I order a Forge.

I spend energy to buy 250 Alloys of 1519.

1 Jan, 3359 – We have enough Unity to adopt another tradition! What do I want to do? I could do :

Research:


Empiricism – Scientist leader cap +2,

Societal Studies - Spy level cap +2

Those are my last two, finishing those would give me my first Ascension perk!

Progress:

Democracy –
Opened up by my Material Abundance pick last time. This gives me +5% resources from jobs.

Pioneers - +5% pop growth, -25% colonizer, construction and research ship costs

I like Pioneers the most but I want to finish off Research too, and Empiricism would be great. I do Empiricism!

04 Feb – Anomaly discovered in the Mash’gar system with a length of 89 I do

13 Feb – Kirama brought in!

Kirama System – 2 energy Star, 3 Mineral planet, stations ordered for both and two Class K Terraformable planets.

These are doable now:


Kirama IIa –
Class M Gaia world, 100% suitability, size 14, 8 energy districts likely an Energy world,

Kirama Va –
Also a Class M Gaia world Moon, with 100%, size 13, 7 energy, probably that too!

Kirama Via – Class D Arid, 30%, size 14, not great districts, best is Food at 5.

Two Gaias in one system? This was a must have!

28 Feb – I order Forges in Earth.

6 April – Bredara Prime is ready to go!

Bredara Prime
– Class M Gaia, 10 size, 1 open job, 1 open spot, has 8 Ag and 7 Energy so could be either! I choose Energy World.

12 May – Event – Mash’gar Anomaly – Peace Out – A weapon of mass destruction is found in our areas, but we would need to find out more about it and issue a special research project or we can bring it home with boosted tech. I choose to start the project and we begin

21 Sept – Anomaly found in the system called Boxer our Cerritos is surveying, I order this done for 120 days.

27 Sept – Construction finished in Kirama for those two mining stations. Next is the 3 Deuterium Star of Dorvan.

1 Nov – Survery finished in Mash’gar – this is in the same nasty cloud as Sikorn and Astra Menta – but it has a Class M planet.

11 Dec – I have 2.5k food and I send a Colony Ship to Kirama IIa an Andorian led mission. I have 2507 Alloys after that.

29 Jan, 3360 – Event – Boxer Anomaly – I Always Feel Like – At first the Cerritos couldn’t find evidence of flora on Boxer IIa but during our two day mission we found out that we were trapped by boxlike trees that contained us and fed us info. I get 1657 research

28 Mar – Construction finished in Dorvan sun. Next is Boxer where we are still surveying

11 June – Boxer and Exor surveyed. Boxer is in my place and was the new system we detected a few years ago. It has a Class L 50% planet and then loads of resources to exploit including the rare Gravitons. It costs 86 flu to bring it in. Exor is below Cardassia, has nothing and is on the far side of the nasty section of space here.

11 Nov - I spend 1555 Energy to buy 250 Alloys – my Minerals have dropped to making 26 monthly and Alloys rose to 31. I have 3142 Alloys now

2 Jan, 3361 – Colony built in Micara!

Micara Prime - Class M Arid world, 80%, one open job, size 10, one open space, I need more Minerals and that’s our biggest one at 5, so I make this a Mining World.

9 Feb – Event – Make Peace – Our experts were on the verge of a massive pre-warp artifact, but then it collapsed into gas. It appears this was not a weapon of mass destruction but a peace making artifact. We get a massive 6629 research!

25 Feb – We agree to a Non-Aggression pact with the Romulans

6 April – We begin colonizing Kirama Prime.

25 April – We finish studying a star system called Walor the last one in the gas cloud

The Cardassians brought Exor into their Empire

6 June – Research finished called Simulator Holodecks. Next is Ergonomic Writing Implements which gives me +20 Admin capacity – it should take around 33 months

12 August – I begin to incorporate Boxer with my Construction Ship.

6 Nov – Research also done in Improved Anti-Matter Conversion. Next is Intrepid Schematics that unlocks that vessel for 73 months.

16 Nov – Dorvan V’s Terraforming is done and its now a Class M. Next will be Boxer once it’s brought in size it’s size 25.

25 Nov – Boxer is ours!

Boxer System
– Has 10 Gravitons/month, has stations of 13 Energy, 10 Minerals, 10 Research, I order them all built.

Boxer Prime –
Class L, 50% suitability, 25 size, Arid World, has not great numbers of key 3. I spend 2k Energy to Terraform it for 1800 days.

1 Jan, 3362 – I have 3430 Alloys.

8 Jan – Survey done for Ramirian System, below where Cardassia went in Exor, has one Class L planet. There is a Pre-Warp Civ here. I could grab it and set up an observation outpost. It’s very far away though.

I order built in Vulcan a Research Labs, Wolf 359 Mining District and Earth too.

2 April – First Contact in the Mayara System! I welcome hospitably and gain 1000 unity. I send Giovanni Johnson from Bajor to help.

I have 3528 Alloys to build the Enterprise D but I’ll wait a bit to build it up.

1 May – Survey done in Vet’Tara, left of Beta Zeta, below the Naucisaans with a Class M world.

5 June – We finish research with Orbital Tractor Beams and next for 26 months is Artificial Gravity Surveys which increase research from Stations by 10%.

I order built in Risa an Ag World an Ag District and then in Bredara Prime an Energy District

12 July – Event – Recruit Spock – A promising officer named Spock has been suggested for Promotion, and it would take 500 unity, so I hire him. He is 132 and a Scientist and level 5. I have too many Scientists and fire my Andorian Level 2 Society Researcher.

9 August – We finish surveying Mayara. It has a colony of another race

5 Nov – With more than 3.7k Alloys, I finish my Build the Enterprise-D mission since we can have some left over in reserve. That unlocks:

Event – Space, the Final Frontier- The Enterprise-D captained by Jean-Luc Picard is now ours!

Now, in order to recruit the staff I need to:

Troi
- 3 Successful Dip missions my Enterprise

La Forge
-Research one Anomaly by Enterprise

Data – 5 systems surveyed by Enterprise

Worf – 3 battles won by Enterprise

Crusher
– Succeed in one Systems in Hazard event

Here he is:


Jean-Luc Picard – Age 47, Commanding Enterprise, Admiral, and we have two now.

I send them to survey a system next to us, actually, it doesn’t have it’s 210 officers. How do I give them to it?

Since I have 257 Alloys left, I spend 150 to set up a Class M Gaia planet in Kirama and I send them Humans

2 Dec – It seems like by hanging out the Starbase it’s gaining Officers each month

11 Jan, 3363 – Event – Arid Aqueduct – Our colony on Micara Prime has discovered a dried up Aqueduct with an enormous statue. It’s on rocky ground so it’s hard to get to. We arrive and find living beads of matter. I have two options, investigate and get 915 reteach and unlock a project called “Aqueduct Beads” or gather the beads and get 1497 minerals. I do the latter.

We finish surveying the Dep’reth system, near the cloudy mass. It’s busy with Class M and L planets to colonize.

4 Feb – Event – Heating Up – To increase the success of Terraforming Boxer Prime we could deploy mirrors. I don’t have the Nanites it would take so I don’t deploy them.

13 Mar – Anomaly discovered in Terana Iva and I order us to dispatch to it for 89 days.

9 April – Survey done of Tiba system below Naucisaans and left of Vet’tara.

14 April – The Enterprise has all 210 officers a strength of 648 and I order it to survey now.

26 June – Anomaly Event Terana – Holodimension – We discover a rift in a Holodeck that leads to a new dimension. What do I want to do? Alert the Captain - +500 Unity. Enter - +1961 research. I choose the Unity boost

9 July – Event – Portal of the Prophets - We study the Holodimension after contacting the Captain and it seems like the pocket dimension is believed by the Bajorans to be their Temple. I can let them know and get 20 flu and +100 relations, or Build a Temple and gain 2000 unity. I need that unity, but I think letting them know makes more Federation sense.

Construction done in Boxer, next is Valo I order my Ship there

Kirama Prime – Class M Gaia world, size 14, 100%, one open spot, with 8 Energy Districts I name this an Energy World.

I have gained enough Unity to finish the Research Tradition! This will unlock an Ascension perk! What do I want?

Functioning Bureaucracy - +100 Admin Capacity aka Spread Fighting and -25% District cost

Spirit of the Times
- +10% research and -33% researcher upkeep

Efficient Consumption
- -20% Ship, Building and District upkeep

Bred for Command -
+2 leader level cap, ruler pop improvement +25%.

I like all of those, but really Spirit and Bureaucracy to increase research and Admin Capacity. My spread right now is 160 of 175 so grabbing the first would really let me keep expanding for a while! Yeah, I do the Functioning Bureaucracy

16 Aug – I upgrade my fleet

3 Sept - We finish the Admin Capacity tech called Ergonomic Writing Implements. What is next? Biomedical Research that unlocks Biomedical Clincs in 25 months

9 Nov – We finish surveying the system called Kaz Daraan left of Tiba, south of Naucisaans and with nothing of interest

1 Jan, 3364 – We are 18 years in, 2 before TNG era, and hopefully bringing in the Enterprise will get me started.

I have enough Flu to bring in Valo which is 86, but it’s just one planet with a 30% and there is a Class M in the system being explored by the Enterprise D, so I head there. It’s called Draygo.

It looks like my Energy Consumption has dropped massively, so I need to up that expect me to add more Energy Districts to planets. I am making just 11 now. Are there any Class M worlds that I could turn into Energy Worlds with my next colony? Dorvan V has just 3 Energy Districts and Denobula 3 too. I am still getting ready to start colonizing Kirama Va and that has 7 Districts, so I’ll do that with it.

7 Mar – Research done with Artificial Gravity Stations. What’s next is Plasma Turbines that increases Energy from Mining Stations by +10% and that will take just 23 months

15 Apr – We finish surveying Draygo! It has a Class M planet. I spend 86 flu and 100 Alloys to bring it in

We are setting up Kerama Secundus too by the by

6 Aug – Draygo is ours! Draygo System has no mines or anything else.

Draygo IV – Class M, Continental world, size 18, 80%, nothing of core three high, best is 6 Ag. Big though

13 Nov – Our Governor Ship arrives in Kerama Prime!!!

I order a Colonization Ship to Draygo IV! It’s led by Humans that make better Energy from jobs.

19 Jan, 3365 – New thing in First Contact – we have established them with the Talarian Republic! We gain 1600 unity. We offer them a gift of 400 credits and raise relations by 40.

I send my envoy from First Contact to make nice with them.

28 Mar – Event – Recruit Luther Sloan – I have a mission to hire Luther Sloan now. He is the Section 51 guy from DS9. It would cost 300 unity. I do it!

Luther Sloan
– Level 3 Spy, age 39

I have a few unemployed pops. I order in Wolf 359 Industrial District, Micara Prime Mining District and Kirama Prime two Energys.

3 May – Beta Penthe is explored, it has a 2 Dilithium Crystal maker, so it’s a key mineral I order my Con Ship over.

5 June – System called Kristor near Talarian Republic is finished!

14 July – Tech done called Biomedical Facilities. Next is Adaptive Test for 28 months that increase Scientist level by 1.

17 July – Message from our Governor over at Kirama Prime. They have built up the infrastructure here and we gain 80 flu.

Is that enough for Beta Penthe which is 103? Yup! I start bringing it in

2 Oct – Anomaly in the system of Alila which I start for 96 days

4 Nov – Beta Penthe brought in! I start mining the Dilithium Crystals.

1 Jan, 2366 - 20 years in! Let’s look at some maps!

Here’s a zoomed out map:




You can see the expanding four big boys, our new stuff in the left flank, the two new systems just brought in on the right, the Enterprise scouting, and more as well as the new Talarian Republic

Now let’s zoom in:



This is just us. You can see our techs and such and low Energy Credit gains in the upper left which I need to work on. Nice, right? I hope so as well

1 Jan, 2376 – Thirty Years Later!!! Who wants maps?

Here’s a zoomed out one:



You can see all of the new ones we discovered over in Cardassian space. We and the Cardassians are near the Talarian Republic.

How about a zoomed in one of just us?



I got you! You can see my three grabs near the Talarians and then us in the south a bit here and there too. Next is Beta Leetor with a Class M planet.

Enjoy!

It’s been 40 years!



Here’s my zoomed out map with us brining in the Betazeds and Talarians and then you can see the three new minors one far away the Bolians.

Now let’s turn to a zoomed in map:




Here’s the left side and you can see the Tanugan too zoomed in here with my new additions in the region




Here’s the right side zoomed in for you as far as Rixudex!

Nice!

1 Jan, 2388 – Do I want to hire a new Governor since mine is President now? They do have certain projects that only they can do that will give me 80 flu and I have that tradition that boosts them. I have space for three Governors, they cost 500 energy and 150 Alloys, come with a ship like Spies and then you can assign them the ability to build things at one planet. I hire 49 year old Tellarite Grav.

I need to wait to pull my new envoy to Seldex contact First Contact from the Iyaaran but I have to wait a year before that happens.

5 Jan – Research done in Improved Dilithium Mining and next is Nanite Filtration System to make Nanite making buildings on my planets for 19 months and done Spacefaring Recruitment for Military Records +1 Admiral level cap and recruitable Admirals for 11 months

1 Jan, 2390 - How much flu to bring in the open minor internal systems of Valo and Castra? Valo has one Class D 30% world and that’s it. OO Raskae Majoris was 103 with three planets despite none being Class M. Hopefully I can bring them in cheaply. Valo is 86 and Castra 103 with nothing in it. Wow, that’s not happening.

13 Mar – Event – Romulan Supernova – The Romulan sun went supernova!

Advanced Warp Nacelles tech is done, next is Mineral Safety Refining for 13 months for unlocking the building called Mineral Refinery Complex

25 Mar - Survey done for Choren system which has no planets and is near the Anarchy

12 April -Since Risa has overcrowding, I spend 336 to build a City District here to give me +5 housing and then two Clerks that make trade and then it has an upkeep of 2 Energy. I also order one at Sepux Ia, Ag District at Mayara Ia and Mining at Vet’tara Secundus and Energy at Kardex Prime and Tiba Secundus and Mining one at Terana Secundus

13 May – First Contact – we find a new race in the system called Emrana, we are almost done with the first one, once finished I’ll send him here – it’s next to Choren and near me

23 June – Peace with Cardassians and Romulans

29 June – We have established relations with the Farian Syndicate near the Bolians on the far side of the galaxy. I send him to make first contact with Emrana

6 Aug – Research done for Tricorders and next is Impermeable Compounds which unlocks the upgrade captial building called Star Capital for 26 months.

7 Sept – I order an upgraded captial on Dorvan Prime;Ag District on Sepux III; Energy on Astra Menta Prime; Ag on Mayara Prime

I have enough unity for my next tradition! What do I want? I can unlock four options and as a reminder they are in diametrically opposed things, so by taking Research I stopped taking Development.

Here are my two options:


Defense vs. Conquest –
Defense has things like Soldiers providing unity or more HP for Starbases. Conquest has things like better fire rate, evasion, and damage in battles

Commerce vs. Welfare – Commerce has things like Specialist give trade value and improved mining and food production. Welfare has things like +50% planetary build speed, amenities usage -10% and upkeep from jobs -15%.

Both Commerce and Welfare feel economic and similar, but I feel like a nation that cannot declare most wars should likely grab Defense, and either Commence or Welfare would work. The first two Commerce includes one free District in every new colony. There’s a Welfare one that increases planet stability by +5 later which I love, I wish the Welfare tree were more about making folks happy, but since both are here I’ll grab Welfare now which unlocks the tree.

7 Oct – Research done in Plasma Site Cleaning, next is Dilithium Crystal Chambers for 14 months to unlock Warp Components

An unidentified fleet is heading to Coridan next to Sol, I order my fleet there to meet it

1 Jan, 2386 – 50 years in!!

Let’s take some pics!!!

Here’s a zoomed out map:




I haven’t dip annexed any new minors but you can see loads of Minors like the one by the Bolians, the Iyaarans, the two below me the Farians and Hupyrian and then the one right next to us the Tanugan. We are dip annexing the Boslic Anarchy right now

Now let’s zoom in!




Here is my left flank! Since we didn’t add any flu from events and they all were high flu system’s, I only added four, all here, 00 Raskae Majoris and then the three in a line from Mar’zek to Bekom.






Here is my right flank where I haven’t moved anywhere. You can see a nice zoom in of the region.

Ready for another 50 years?

Beam Aboard
- Gain 10k research
Beam Aboard in Force - +80 flu
Beam Aboard and Contact them in Peace - +10k unity

So, this isn't sucking me in to want to play the Star Trek variant... I'm not seeing much more story than a normal Stellaris game... how is it playing?

Clarifying... your story is as good as always... I just mean it doesn't seem the Star Trek "theme" is changing the feel much...

Many of the events are Star Trek not Stellaris, and have that theme, but i hear ya. I'll give my full thoughts after finishing, but it feels like a similar Stellaris in a few ways, so for folks that like Star Trek looking for an intro into grand strategy or games like this has a lot to do. For example, we had the detailed Crystalline Entity and Borg event chains.

1 Jan, 2404 - I order built: Earth – Upgraded Forge; Vulcan – City District; Wolf 359 – Industrial District; Kirama Prime – Energy District; Draygo Prime - Research Labs; Dorvan Prime – Mining District; Astra Menta Prime – Ag District and Tiba Prime too; Vet’tara - Upgraded Capital; Tiba Tribus too; Mar’zek Prime – Energy District; Bekom Secundus – Ag District

By now in Stellaris I’d have sinks for things like Alloys such as Megastructures and artificial planets, I wonder if I can unlock those like turning gas giants into habitable structures or Dyson Spheres or Ring Worlds. Remember that Alloys, Deuterium, and Minerals and Energy obviously are upkeep and rare minerals too.

4 Feb – We settle a new world!

Meneri Prime
– Class M, 80%, size 24 Tundra, all core three Districts are 3 or 4. Cryogenic Lakes trait. I name this an Energy World

24 Mar – Event - The Borg – Our encounter with the Borg has unsettled Starfleet. A council convened and believes we should observe carefully the Borg before engaging them militarily. I get a special project called “The Official”– Lasts for 1800 days, takes 30 days, I start researching

Oh, the Enterprise is back from MIA status

7 Apr – Research done for Particle Funnel I, next is Antimatter Injectors for 3 months and then it gives my ships Warp Components.

Survey done for the Lotor System with a Class M world near Iyaaran.

2 May – Event – Dormant Hivemind – Our Borg survey is done, Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the Enterprise is selected to run the mission. We have come across a downed Borg Ship.

I have four options:

1. Keep an Eye on the Ship - +10000 research
2. Make a Deep Study of the Weapons System – We gain +10% ship fire rate
3. Study their Anatomy- We get +5% pop growth
4. Strip it of its’ Resources – I gain 2k Alloys

All of these will start the “Contacting the Borg” special project. I like the boosts to fire rate for battle with the Borg. I choose #2.

Contacting the Borg – 1800 days, Jean-Luc Picard heads to Meneri and starts the Special Project

Research done for Deuterium Mining Protocols, next is Twin-Engine Retrofit which unlocks Thrusters for 10 months

First Contact in Irsh’ven system. I pull my making nice Envoy from Tanugan to break contact.

20 Aug – Research done in two things! Advanced Terraforming is first and next is Diplomatic Posture to make the Consulate building for 6 months and Antimatter Injectors and next is Lightning Transfers giving me +10% energy from stations for 19 months.

We finished surveying the system of Erela Duraan with a bunch of Class D 30% worlds near us in Turul

26 Sept – Saveb system also surveyed with nothing major near the Iyaarans

We got a new world!

Kristor Prime – Class M, massive 26 size, 80%, Arctic, I name this an Energy World. One open spot and job

Irsr’ven are another group of Naucisaans and we finish first contact, I send my envoy back to the Tanugans

1 Jan, 2405 – I order built: Earth - Upgraded Forges again; Andoria – Energy District; Bredara Prime – Upgraded Research Labs; Micara Prime – Subspace Tetryon Collider; Dep’reth and Terana Prime City Disticts; Beta Leetor Prime – Mining District; Talaria - Upgraded labs; Vet’tara Secundus -Dilithium Plant; Kardex Prime – Upgraded Capital; Tiba Tribus- Energy District; Bredara Secundus - Upgraded captial; Endra Prime – Energy District; and Weneb and Bekom and Sepux Prime too;

9 Jan - Two researches done! They are Twin-Engine Retrofit and Diplomatic Postures. Next are Heavy Scanner for 8 months to improve research speed +5%, and Standardized Excelsior Blueprints to reduce cost by 25% and improve fire speed by 5%, for 13 months

25 Feb - I order a Colony Ship to Denobula’s small Class M planet led by Humans

I terraform Minorva’s Volcanic Class N into a D in 2483 days

18 Apr – I send Jean-Luc from surveying to research Meneri

7 July – Research done for Heavy Scanner next is Environment Condition to improve suitability on planets by 5% and it’ll take 6 months

We have enough Unity for our next Tradition; I have two options in Welfare – Efficiency Mass Transit to improve planetary build speed by 50% or Standards of Living to improve +5 stability – that’s what I go for

2 Aug – Borg Event – Hivemind Alerted – After hailing them, we receive a coded message that says “Resistance is Futile”. For 5 years we get +25% Shields.

Event – Assimilation – Swirling ash and volleys of phaser fire have transformed the halls of the Enterprise after a boarding party arrives from the Borg. They capture Jean-Luc Picard. I prepare a rescue party and lose 50 officers.

17 Aug – Event – Reclamation – A recon mission is underway with the Borg Ship led by our head of security. We find him and he has been assimilated. We beam him back to the Enterprise. We gain 2k unity.

24 Aug – Event – Emancipation – Jean Luc has been under a successful surgery and down and just woke up. Only one of his organs was intact. We study the cybernetic implants and gain 10k research

7 Oct – Survey done in the Daniir system below the Hupyrian with nothing

We have absorbed the Boslic Anarchy! Five systems, all with Starbases

Boslic Anarchy:

Shived II – Next to Rixudex, Class L alpine with 50%, 11 distecits of mining make this a Mining World for me, size of 25

Veldon System –
below Shived System – has two Class L 2 planets with 50% but aren’t settled:

Veldon VIA – Tundra, size 10, Mugato Mountains to make Farmers better Ag district of 3, I terraform it

Veldon VIIA
-Continental, size 13, no traits

Kran’tara System – Has one Class D 30% world and nothing else, right of Veldon

N’dara System – Has one colonized world, one Class L,one class D, and two Class N volcanic, upper right of Kran’tara

N’dara IIa -
Colonized, Class L, Savannah, 50%,size 17, Rama Plains for Clerks, and then three open spots, two open jobs, I make this a Food World

N’dara IIb
– Class L, 50%, size 10, Tundra

Boslia –
Home system with their HW. Far up corner of their area.

Boslic
– Their capital, Class M, 100%, 16 size, two open spots, one open job, Desert word

They have two navies of 20 size each.

I send my extra two envoys to make nice with the Hupyrians and ask the Tanuagns for accessions

5 Nov – Research done in two things – Lightning Transfers and Standaardized Excelsior Schematics, next is Emitter Matrices for 16 months to give my ships Phaser Batteries and Antimatter Payloads for 9 months to give them what’s on the tin

The Tanugans have agreed to join us, I send my extra envoy!

Oh, and their civic we gained was Under Your Nose which gives me massive unity boost for successful spy missions

6 Dec – Research done for Environment Conditioning; next is Planetary Simulations to give me +10 suitability for planets for a year

60 Year Review!

Let’s take some pics and such!!

Let’s start with a zoomed out map:



Here’s everything from our absorbing of the Boslic Anarchy to the discovery of the 2nd Naucisaan faction in the far left.

Let’s zoom in a bit to my left flank:




Here’s our left flank again, and you can see our two additions in the area in the last ten years called Siba and Kristor.

Let's turn to my right flank:



Here’s my much improved right flank with the five Boslic systems showing for your purposes as well as the many to my lower flank like Meneri and Turul.
