I'm guessing that a reason to not have Chiaki as the main is that there is only so much room in the universe. It can't handle a cold faced, glasses wearing, hime cut, tsundere, extremely large ham, HanaKana voiced, pirate queen. It is too much awesome for one universe to contain.

I wonder if the tales of the dark haired Pirate Captain will conflict with the stories of the red haired Pirate Captain...and some liner passangers (and perhaps crewmembers) will be dissapointed they got the Red headed one instead of the more over the top black haired one.

This sorta explains why Will Riker never went on to be a captain... especially after the Borg episodes.

In order to keep Chiaki more into the show, she'd have to go where Marika goes.

Riker eventually became captain of another ship, the USS Titan, at the end of ST: Nemesis; he even has his own novel series, too.

Novels can contain such things as it takes the camera to get the entirely of the awesomeness. I imagine the Miniskirt Space Pirates Light Novels can contain more Chiaki(-chan) than the TV screen can take.

Though there was an Episode with a real Captain Riker of the USS Enterprise when they had all the parallel universe Worfs around (as oppose to some future version or fake future versions of a possible Captain Riker).

Riker is awesome enough to still sparkle even when overshadowed by Picard. Though I'd question the direction for Star Trek Titan was to be a comedy. Will even called it 'The Rikers' in his proposal! That never saw the light of day, but with MoP mixing comedy with scifi, then you guys bringing up Riker... THE MEMORIES.

I totally agree that Chiaki-chan is a more enjoyable captain. But this is not her novel. Instead, she should get a Railgun-type spinoff and make that explode with parfait-powered goodness. Like how her OreImo manga is far better than Kirino.

Thing is: you know that issue of Riker becoming Captain came up within Season 4 of TNG. If not, earlier. At that point, it was obvious as to why he couldn't leave the Enterprise: it'd require him to leave the TNG cast or just end up as this... side character.

Oh my goodness. A full series on Chiaki would bring about many tears of joy.

Riker could be a good cross between Kirk and Picard.

I can't class Chiaki well enough yet for that (she's by the book and yet hammy enough (acting wise) to be a Picard I guess. Picard liked acting, though he was't a ham as I recall. Kirk was more action)....though I think Jenny might qualify in that role. Intelligent and Commanding, yet also with obvious humor and flair (see her response to the Lighning 11 and her thoughts leading up to that response). Only her inexperiance shows when the Lightning 11 shots at her and she reacts in the "eww how 20th century" way when Chiaki tells her they are using just their eyes and telescope rangefinders. She won't make that mistake again, I think.

Riker's only real problem was his last appearance....the final episode of Enterprise. That would have been a good episode....if it was a The Next Generation episode, or if it had been a two parter sliced with the episode it is framed within (about USS Pegasus). But it was not a good Enterprise episode because it focused on Riker....not the Enterprise and her crew. If it had been done in the 1990s as a TNG episode it would have been good as it would make you wonder what Captain Archer's speech was at the founding of the United Federation of Planets, and given a good chance of people wanting to see what happened back then...and start to a prequel series. But no....it was the end...of all those series, and was not very respectful to the show's own cast when the guest stars run away with the show.....but then that sort of stands to reason....Riker's awesome took over the show. (sorry) (and for what it is worth, the Fourth Season of Enterprise was awesome...especially the Mirrow Universe episodes....but it was far too late by then).


The hope is that Marika, Chiaki, and Jenny will have a long career and perhaps a sequal series. Because there has been a serious lack of space opera style sci-fi....from any coutry, in this decade.

I wouldn't mind MoP being turned into a computer game. Create your own ship, crew and legacy! Interact with the cast in their quest for booty and Loli!

In that case, it would be Commander Dolittle doing a neat voice endorsement of her favorite cafe all over again. Not to mention Chiaki being the most romanced crew member in the game.

even better if this sim was made by pre-EA Bioware.

Why not combine the two? A Space pirate dating sim! Scour the galaxy for loot while building your harem empire. Sounds like a winner to me.

Oh, and dibs on Dark Queen Chiaki-chan.

Combination sounds good
The better you are at space pirating, the more the girls like you, and thus the bigger your harem gets

Chiaki in a Railgun-type spinoff would be too awesome for this world. Although I would like to see the private adventures of Jenny and Lynn myself. I'm sure Lynn puts her skills to use in more than just the "illegal faking attendance" skill. And we'd then know for sure if Jenny also is building her own harem.

Oh yes. The pure win of that is so bright that I need to wear shades. Getting booty and unlocking harem achieivements. Yarrr!

Duly noted. Dibs on Jenny Dolittle

Although I wouldn't mind mahjogg mini-games as part of that dating sim. And we all know from Saki that the best mahjogg players go no-pan

Hmmm, I am anxious to see what a few of those images mean. At least one of them was very unexpected. Guess I'll have to wait another 9 hours to be able to see it.

Some pictures from yesterday and today Satelight's Tokyo International Anime Fair (TAF) booth and other companies. Pictures are from twitters (Satou, Mikako, Satelight) and 2ch. There were a Q&A session and also Komatsu Mikako's mini live.
