A Wandering Enterprise

And – for a break from the assorted Eclipse-build superheroes… it’s a somewhat silly godling from the Apex setting, where any entity with that gets a notable presence in humanities collective consciousness, and can claim a reasonably unique domain, may turn up…

The wormhole spun ever larger, the brighter flares absorbed into the ember-red filaments of entropic energy that spun out, devouring the nearby stars. Galactic death in slow motion, feeding into a churning void. Yet… there were subtle hints of a path through the whirling chaos, a way to reach the center and – perhaps – to stop the galactic decay.

And the Enterprise led the way, cutting short its five-year mission in search of renewal.

But the time-distortion of the vortex delayed things too much. By the time that the Enterprise erupted from unreality into the offices of Paramount Television on Apex, the original cast and crew were long gone – and six additional television series, thirteen feature films, and an endless stream of toys, books, and games had appeared, feeding the mythology at the expense of its stability.

So now the Enterprise has a NEW mission – to complete its old one, even if the tales must be told in animated form, and to spread the pure doctrine of Roddenberry.

(20) Physical Limitation: Shaped By Belief. Titans may be powerful in their fields, but they are limited to a single, and invariably fairly straightforward, domain. A Spirit of Invention makes gadgets and – possibly – provides grants and teaches. Similarly, the spirit of Memorial Day is a formidable soldier, has lots of weapons, and can operate military vehicles – but that’s about it . (Frequently, Fully)
(20) Mental Characteristic Maxima of 15 (-20 Points). People never really think that their “gods” are really much smarter, or more perceptive, or whatever, than they are – no matter what their theme is. The God of Knowledge may have a lot of knowledge skills, but he or she normally won’t actually be much smarter than the average person. If there’s any one thing that the Titans find annoying about their relationship with mortals… this may be it. (All the Time, Greatly)
(20) Psychological Limitation: Themed. Titans aren’t even CAPABLE of getting seriously off-theme. A war god won’t be negotiating, the healing goddess won’t be building gadgets, and the god of justice won’t be letting criminals go, no matter how necessary it may be (Common, Total)

OK, this is silly – but it actually fits the setting and I found the idea amusing – so why not?
