Posted Image Layout

When I'm not hosting and playing games in the Mafia and Wargames Forum, I also build things.

Posted Image

Some of you who played in Suburbia Mystery might notice that the layout is different, because I just revamped the city and changed it. I've recently started to take a shine to the new Alien Conquest theme, so I added a small ADU Base. However, you'll see it in the upcoming story....

Behind the grocery store, in downtown Lexington...

"Captain's log, stardate Unknown. Myself, Mr. Spock, Doctor McCoy, Mr. Scott, and Ensign Rogers have beamed down to old Earth after being caught in a time warp. While our engines are being worked on, we've decided to investigate and gather data on this time period."

"We'll split into two teams. Mr. Spock and Mr. Scott, find data in the town library...Myself, Doctor McCoy, and Ensign Rogers will look around the city."

Posted Image

"I've fashioned up a machine that will locate this library." Mr. Scott said.

"Excellent. Signal when you've finished." Kirk said.

Posted Image

"Don't you think carrying around that phaser is a bit...revealing Mr. Spock?"

"Not particularly, Mr. Scott. This time period was particularly violent. It will ensure our safety."

"What's going on over there, Mr. Spock?"

Posted Image

"Excuse me, sir. Might I enquirer as to what's occurring?"

"There's a prisoner transport. It's a serious deal, so I suggest you stand back for your own safety."

"Fascinating." Spock said.

Posted Image

"Look at this old port." Kirk said.

"Amazing that people lived like this. It's amazing that these people ever got civilized." McCoy said.

Posted Image

"I tell you, Jim. This is a dangerous spot."

"Look out!" someone called.

DEAD REDSHIRTS - ONE

"Ensign Rogers!" Kirk said calmly. "I knew his father."

Posted Image

"He's dead, Jim." McCoy said.

"Take his phaser. We wouldn't want it to get into the wrong hands."

Posted Image

"Kirk to Enterprise."

"Enterprise, Lieutenant Uhura here." the response came.

"Uhura, inform security that we have one casualty. Have them send down another security officer."

"Understood, Captain."

Posted Image

"He should be beaming down here." Kirk said.

Posted Image

"Ensign Ryan, reporting as ordered sir."

"Damnit Jim, I'm a doctor not a soldier."

"Give him the phaser then Bones."

Posted Image

"Let's keep going."

Posted Image

"Mr Spock, moving to the other side of the blockade isn't going to help."

"Quite true, Mr. Scott, but we might be able to ask them to let us through."

Posted Image

"Excuse me, sir and ma'am. Might we enter this building?"

Posted Image

"I'm sorry." Deputy Chief Scott said. "We can't let you through yet."

Posted Image

"Mr Spock. this is telling me that what we're looking for is in there."

"We must get through."

Posted Image

"Excuse me sir, what is this facility?"

"Don't you know? This is the Alien Defense Unit Headquarters."

Posted Image

"We're training just in case of an incident. You're free to look around."

Posted Image

"Excuse me, sir. There is a giant bug behind you."

Posted Image

"What?!"

Mr. Spock used his Vulcan neck-pinch.

Posted Image

"We should be good for the next few minutes, let's go."

Posted Image

"Excellent maneuver, Mr. Spock."

Posted Image

"Look at this old truck." McCoy said.

"Indeed, it's very interesting." Kirk said.

Posted Image

"What on Earth is that?" McCoy asked.

"Phasers!" Kirk said.

Both the alien and Ensign Ryan disappeared!

DEAD REDSHIRTS - TWO


Posted Image

"Ensign Ryan...I knew his uncle, a dear friend of mine."

Posted Image

"Kirk to Enterprise."

"Enterprise, Lieutenant Uhura here."

"Ensign Ryan has been killed in the line of duty. I recommend him for commendations."

"I'll get Security to send someone else down."

"Put Mr. Chekov on the line, please."

Posted Image

"Chekov here, sir."

"Mr. Chekov, what's the situation with the engines?"

Posted Image

DEAD REDSHIRTS - THREE


"We're almost finished sir. Everything is clearing up and the vwessel is almost ready for movement."

Posted Image

"Put Lieutenant Uhura back on."

"Uhura here, sir."

"Where is that security officer?"

"I don't understand, Security informed me he should be here."

Posted Image

"Strange, please send down another."

Posted Image

"Lieutenant Rowe, reporting sir."

"Aren't you a bit too pretty to be working in Security?"

The Lieutenant giggled.

Posted Image

"He's a very sound sleeper, Mr. Spock."

"That is not logical. He isn't making noise, Mr. Scott."

"It was an expression...never mind, Mr. Spock."

Posted Image

"We must find the Captain."

Posted Image

"Look at this beautiful farm, Lieutenant. I'd love to settle down here."

"It's very pretty, Captain."

Posted Image

"Hey you! Get off my land!"

The farmer raised his ax menacingly.

Posted Image

Kirk shot his phaser into the air to scare the farmer.

"Jim, no!" McCoy yelled.

Posted Image

The horse whined loudly.

"Aieeee!" The Lieutenant screamed.

Posted Image

She was trampled by the horse.

DEAD REDSHIRTS - FOUR


Posted Image

"She's dead, Jim."

"No....no..." Kirk said slowly.

"Let's go, Jim. Mr. Spock just gave the signal."

Posted Image

"We have to get back to the beamdown point." Kirk said.

Posted Image

"What's his problem?" McCoy asked.

"We've got to get him to the hospital. His kidney is failing."

"Here." McCoy said, fishing into his pouch. "Take this."

He shoved a pill into his mouth.

"Come on, bones." Kirk said.

Posted Image

"Who was that?"

"You know..." the patient said.

Posted Image

"I'm feeling much better!"

Posted Image

"Enterprise, beam up immediately." Spock said.

I made the Spock ears out of the Series 3 elf ears. If you'd like to see any other pictures of the city, let me know. I think I covered most everything.

That was an excellent read :classic: And I usually don't like reading photo stories.
4 dead redshirts... no wonder Lego produces that many police sets, Lexington a very dangerous place to live in. But at least Bones saved the kidney guy.

Great!  :grin:

Just wondering what's the maximum number of dead redshirts on one ST episode – wasn't that 4, too?

I'm not entirely sure, but I think it was either four or five. Thanks for the compliments everyone!

Very cool, entertaining...and deadly story. Could you post a picture from the opposite end of the first shot? Basically, another overhead view of your city.

Your character is in their somewhere, I think. I know I placed all the characters from Suburbia (even some from Red Scare) into the city.

Lovely stuff, Bob!  The Suburbia mystery game setting had a great feel to it and the Star Trek exploits show off the city nicely :classic:

Hey Bob, I followed the link in your signature to this thread I missed when you first posted... Ah, the memories! :cry_happy: I'm glad to notice that Deputy Chief Scott is still standing duty!

It's great to see more of Lexington, a city of drama and mystery! Plus, I'm a long time Trek fan so I enjoyed the story. Reminds me of ST:IV and many installments from the original series visiting "alternate Earths". Thanks!

Thanks, and sorry for the rather delayed reply.

Most of the Original Series of Star Trek either involved encountering a planet "very similar to Earth" or saving the ship because it was under attack by a mysterious entity. But, I love the Original Series the best.
