Thanks for enquiring, Hector. Ehsumrell1 and I are working on the new 'Picard Era' mod. This will supersede TRSE (The Romulan Star Empire) mod.
It's going quite well. Characters are the really big thing this time around and take alot of time to do.
I'm pretty much finished with the Federation characters, the largest number of characters of any faction with around 40. So that's a pretty large chunk of the work right there. Done a couple of minor races as well. I'm also using alot of 'Generic Characters' so as to avoid getting characters with the dreaded racial image. For example, Ensign Ricky will look very much like Lieutenant Erickson, but as long as they don't look like the President of the UFP, that should be ok.
Ship images are pretty much done also. The additional 'unused' shipset has been overhauled slightly. The ships in the Federation shipset are from the early era, so you'll have to go to the additional shipset to obtain the image for the Defiant, Voyager etc. The reason for this.....
....I'm trying to give the player the impression that you're playing through the Next Generation, DS9 and Voyager series, from start to finish. At the start, you'll only have access to ships from early in the series and will encounter characters that were around at that early time also. For example, no Admiral Janeway at the beginning.
There are currently 23 races and I think it'll stay that way for now. Priority is to get them all finished (characters mainly) and get the mod out there. Sorry, no Borg yet (only the ship image scaling is a problem), but there is a rather stretchy faced alien race that has been added.
Hope some of that made sense and whets your appetite. I'll have a preview up sometime soon, but as for a release date..... I'm unsure. Lots of things to do still.
Take care and happy trekking.
