Star Trek Expanded Universe

"Vitality" (or Star Trek: Vitality, or "Vitality Remake") was the first spin-off of the third season for Star Trek: Phoenix-X and the first spin-off of the sixth season as a result of its rewrite. It utilized elements from Star Trek: Phoenix-X but focused on a different crew. The main characters used in Vitality were clones from canon productions. The fiction is not comedy, but drama, and is not yet complete.


The clones of Jean-Luc Picard, Miles O'Brien, Tuvok, Hoshi Sato, and Leonard McCoy are brought to life in the 36th century and are thrown into the middle of a galactic war with only the Starship Vitality to carry them.

Background information[]

  • Star Trek: Vitality was originally on forums until being backed up on a webpage.
  • The character of Jean-Luc Picard's clone was created before knowledge and release of Star Trek Nemesis in theaters. Nemesis featured Shinzon, another Picard clone.
  • "Vitality" utilizes some of the main elements from Star Trek: Phoenix-X Season 3, such as the omni'X and the Klokian. Lieutenant Amp was a direct character crossover; he appeared in Season 3 and departed the Phoenix-X, in the 24th century, at the end of that Season.
  • The omni-sphere is the same type of sphere Klokian used to capture Daniel in "Fight, Parts I, II & III."
  • In August 2014, Star Trek: Vitality was integrated into the Star Trek: Phoenix-X website and re-branded as Vitality. The original posting dates and chronological order of Vitality are an approximation.
  • Picard speaking about the Android War "several centuries ago" is a reference to Star Trek: Rise of the Machines where warring androids from the 30th century visit 21st century Earth.
  • Thorap mentions the "Federation-Alliance War of the 28th century" which is a reference to the RPG series Star Trek: 001.
  • Though not mentioned in story, several of the leaders of warring factions in Part 5 represent specifically mentioned factions in Part 4. Kloakk represents the Klokians, keeping in consistency with nomenclature of those species. Kloakk's claim that his species "lives" in the 39th century is a reference to "Fight, Part II" where the crew of the Phoenix-X time travel to fight the Klokian at their time traveling home world in that century. Since the entire world time travels, the existence of it in the 39th century is temporary.
  • Logiket represents the Hexens and is named in likeness of the Hexen starship Logitech from "Possible Regret".
  • Apoch represents the Nega'Jem and is named after the Nega'Jem starship Apocalypse seen in several Star Trek: Phoenix-X Season 2 episodes, starting with "The Nega'Jem, Part I".
  • Thorap represents the omni'X and is named in likeness of Throk, an omni'X from the 24th century, from Season 2, who first appears in "Avalon Battlefield, Part II". His species has not been specified.
