Also, are the races fixed, or is there room to add more?
There's LOTS of room to add more.
Basic premise was that the 'Federation stand in' (forget the name) was attacked by damaging the 'Gate Network' which was a series of jump gates (similiar to those in Babylon 5). Space Fleet Omega was actually a fleet, the last/newest in a string of colonial fleets along the path of colonization.
The SFO group decided to investigate the cause of it's loss of contact, and the pseudepigraphal "pilot" was concerned with events at the begining of the conflict. The 'Series' is about the adventures of the fleet (largely, the OFS 'Endeavour', though other ships are frequently involved) when they try to investigate the cause of the gate systems's crash and their journey back home to help end the war they find themelves in.
The Yahoo group is here...
The bad guys are called Kalamarians (for reasons that are obvious to those that have seen my sketches)
, there are also some eventual allies called the Tharbarians, a group called the Nerfertitians, and I know *I* had plans for doing the usual Aliens that pop up throughout the show's run.
SFO was unable to use the gates, due to the machinations of the Kalamarians, so they had to go through the various star systems on the way home using 'standard FTL', an older and rather slower method. They followed the old 'caravan routes' that still exist (and are used for 'local traffic'). Standard FTL is sort of a slower version of 'warp drive' from the various Trek series.
Races along the routes still had to be filled in, GOBS of rooms for them...
