Basic Outline[edit source]

NPCinfo template[edit source]

Use the {{NPCinfo}} template to create the NPC info box. See the template page for detailed instructions. Example usage:

{{NPCinfo
| rank = Rank
| image = Name of Headshot Image.png
| faction = Starfleet/Klingon/Romulan/Cardassian/Borg/etc.
| location = Where This NPS Can Be Found
| race = NPC's Race
| profession = Primary Job of NPC (e.g. Mission giver, Personal Equipment Vendor)
}}
rank 
The exact rank of this NPC, capitalized (e.g. "Lieutenant Commander"). If the NPC is not in Starfleet or the Klingon Defense Force, use "Civilian" or any other applicable title. NPCs will be categorized by their rank.
image 
The image of this NPC's headshot, as seen during conversation. If a headshot is not available, any decent screen capture of the NPC will be suitable.
faction 
Either Starfleet or Klingon. Determines the color of the box behind the NPC's name, as well as the logo used. Federation and Vulcan are also possible choices, although not recommended.
location 
The location of this NPC. Examples include Earth Spacedock and Deepspace K7. NPCs will be categorized by their location.
race 
The race the NPC belongs to. NPCs will be categorized by their race.
profession
The exact profession of the NPC. Examples include Mission giver, Kit Vendor, Personal Equipment Vendor, Starship Vendor, and Vendor (for generalized vendors, like those Ferengi on every space station).

Description[edit source]

A description of the NPC must begin with the following format:

Rank In-Game Name is a Race Faction Profession officer...

...or something to that effect. The following rules must apply:

  1. The in-game name must be in bold.
  2. The NPC's race, faction, profession, and any other relevant information must be specified and linked.

Details[edit source]

If the NPC gives the player any specialized information, it should be listed here. For example, any information that Commander Balt (from Earth Spacedock) tells the player would go in this section of his page, with each possible question as a sub-section heading.

History[edit source]

Any relevant history of the NPC goes here, including information taken from the Path to 2409 or text from the bottom of loading screens.

Store[edit source]

A list of all items sold by the NPC would go here, using the store templates: Template:storeheader to start the store list, Template:storeitem to list all items in the store and Template:storefooter to finish the list.

Example: The following code

{{storeheader}}
{{storeitem|Phaser Beam Array|Mk I|[CrtH]|Uncommon|3,000 {{EC}}}}
{{storeitem|Phaser Beam Array|Mk II|2x[CrtH]|Rare|5,000 {{EC}}}}
{{storeitem|Phaser Beam Array|Mk III|3x[CrtH]|Legendary|7,000 {{EC}}}}
{{storefooter}}

produces:

Icon Name Price
Phaser Beam Array Mk I icon.png
Uncommon icon.png
[Phaser Beam Array Mk I [CrtH]] 3,000 Energy credit icon.png
Phaser Beam Array Mk II icon.png
Rare icon.png
[Phaser Beam Array Mk II 2x[CrtH]] 5,000 Energy credit icon.png
Phaser Beam Array Mk III icon.png
Legendary icon.png
[Phaser Beam Array Mk III 3x[CrtH]] 7,000 Energy credit icon.png

Missions given[edit source]

If this NPC gives the player any missions, they are to be listed here in bulleted format, using the {{Mission}} template.

Patrol[edit source]

Any Patrol missions would be listed in bulleted format here.

Secure[edit source]

Any Secure missions would be listed in bulleted format here.

Missions encountered[edit source]

If this NPC is otherwise encountered or seen in any missions, list them here in bulleted format using the Mission template again. Followed by the mission name, shortly describe the NPC's role in the mission.

Notes[edit source]

Any random, miscellaneous, or background information would go here, again in bulleted list format.
