    Game Mods 

  • ARPIA2, World of an Agency by Peter "Pace" Craddock and several members of ATMOS, the original Nova developers
    • Recommended by: StarSword
    • Synopsis: A "quasi-TC" mod for Nova (best explained as an unofficial Expansion Pack) that adds new factions, ships, outfits, and a long new branching storyline revolving around the exploits of the Anti-Raider and Pirate Intelligence Agency.
    • Pairing(s): Has a romance sideplot between the Player Character and another ARPIA agent.
    • Comments: This is a remake and expansion of Pace's earlier ARPIA plug-in. The new ships are somewhat broken with respect to the original scenario, but then Nova was never exactly well-balanced to begin with (*cough* Polaris Raven *cough*). It's nevertheless quite fun to play. The website also contains a free PDF novelization and additional literature.

  • Starfleet Adventures, formerly by Uncle Twitchy, now by Peter "Pace" Craddock (Link)
    • Recommended by: StarSword
    • Synopsis: Nova total conversion into a scenario based on Star Trek: The Original Series and the first six Star Trek movies. It places the player as a Federation Starfleet officer with a Wide Open Sandbox career, with wide-ranging missions including transport, diplomatic, humanitarian, and combat.
    • Comments: Huge open map, vastly different combat gameplay from Nova (see the work page).
