Blog has been updated with image and conditions surrounding Ziegler nebula. (Hat tip to T'neth for the image)

I'll be using that blog as a reference for a lot of stuff, and I'll try to remember to add links as I go. But worth bookmarking maybe, for visual reference....


Female Vulcan Ensign

And I'll pass the hat tip to NASA. Love getting my tax dollars worth out of Hubble Space Telescope images.

I think the politically correct term is disturbed researcher.

Edit: Yes, I went ahead and ad-libbed stuff about the ship's layout. Feel free to nix it if you want.

Nope, it's all great!

Exactly the purpose of what we're doing here. I have a general plot structure, with NPCs to come and whatnot, but backstories, world-building, ,etc... it's all awesome when everyone adds to it!

In general, as long as it is consistent with flavor, everyone should feel free to make up as much as they want to problem-solve and move the story forward. If I want to throw a wrench in for drama purposes, I will ("That jeffries tube is filled with poisonous plasma!") but so far everyone is doing an awesome job rolling things along in a fun and entertaining way....

Do shuttlecraft have airlocks?

OJO/T'NETH

An injured crewmen is almost conscious, at the end of the corridor... OJO, one of your trusted security mean is buzzing your communicator

T'NETH, you notice a subtle movement of the Aubrey... only you can feel it. As if it just lurched... backwards?

HERACLIO

You have decoded the mystery transmission. It is a hailing frequency like nothing you have ever seen. And the, there is a disturbance on the bridge... Commotion, but you are so focused on your earpiece, what's happening a few feet away seems... unimportant

DOCTOR

The injured crewmen are out cold, but your readings are... a power surge like nothing you've ever seen. Almost as if an energy WILLED them unconcious


Male Andorian Lieutenant jg

I certainly don't intend for Lt. Ojo's "service animal" to be a long-running dramatic secret, but it's fun for me if it's discovered naturally. However, Von Sturm would have had to know it since Ojo is part of the Aubrey's crew, and Dr. Callahan is certainly within his rights pulling Ojo's medical records to find out what's going on. If anyone has access to that information, feel free to send a private message to Andostre and I'll fill you in. If it comes out publicly in the Gameplay thread, even better.


m Human Captain

Assume Von Sturm has barely noticed. If he's mid-mission and it's not mechanical, he probably didn't even realize there was an alone marsupial aboard. If he noticed, he would likely just respond with a "hmm. so that's a thing" and not think about it unless it was in danger. He's a "big picture" kinda guy...

I like that it's coming out naturally...


Female Vulcan Ensign

Ah, yes. The logic of Trek. Arguing for splitting up the party and using 60s TV medicine in the same post.

I have out of character speculations about Ada'em's fuzzy parrot, but am waiting for a chatting around the command chair before the end credits moment for T'neth to voice her theories. She may speak earlier if the opportunity presents itself.


m Human Captain

I wanna give The Doctor and Heraclio a chance to choime in before we get much further... we're getting into act 2 fast and furious...


Female Vulcan Ensign

I'm still here. Holding to give Doc and Ojo a chance to respond to events as T'neth has been chewing up scenery recently.


m Human Captain

And the madness begins.


M Human

Oh hell yes.


m Human Captain

Blog is updated with half-assed image.


m Human Captain

T'Neth- looks like you have several options for regaining control of the ship. Or whatever you want to do. Give me something good.

Ojo- The action starts with you. Have fun!

Callahan- You are also in a first contact situation. remember that the shuttle is being pulled to the castle in space.

Koike- A few things; you notice that Gorchnik has knocked out Sokal with his chain. You are finally startled out of your romantic haze. Also,don't forget that the coded signal you were deciphering has been broken. I will giv eit to you when you get to it in-game.


Female Vulcan Ensign

I'm glad you see several options. Weighing a couple myself, so don't read that as a negative.


Male Andorian Lieutenant jg

Hey Kaspar,

I just sent you a PM with a quick question. FYI.


Male Andorian Lieutenant jg

Ha! This is the first time I've encountered this message board's profanity filter, I think.


m Human Captain

hahaha

It just occurred to me that in the past thirty seconds (show time) Ojo started firing blazing guns, swung his axe like a club, and then ran off cursing. He is like a madman!


Male Human Ship's Doctor

He is Andorian. :)


Male Andorian Lieutenant jg

I'll take "Andorian madman" as a compliment! Thanks, I'm having a lot of fun with him!


m Human Captain

Ojo and Tneth.... Don't move for a few posts- we need to catch up in the bridge and shuttle... You guys are about five minutes forward at the moment- I want everyone synchs for the next bit...


m Human Captain

The blog has been updated.

And again, if anyone has any images, bio information, etc, they want me or Joe to post, please let me know.


Female Vulcan Ensign

Still waiting for synchage.


m Human Captain

Sorry- slammed at work. Will get everything rolling again ASAP!!!


Female Vulcan Ensign

No worries, I was thinking you were probably waiting for a post from Heraclio.

Speaking of being slammed, I'll be traveling the first two weeks in January. I should have internet access, but can't vouch for the reliability. I'll get a reminder up when I'm closer to my departure date.


m Human Captain

Sorry for the delay, guys- home for the holidays. Back now, so I should be available to keep things moving for a while.

Heraclio- you're lagging behind, hombre!

BTW, the name of this episode is "CASTLE OF THE SPACE MAGES".


Male Human Ship's Doctor

Yay, the captain's back!


m Human Captain

Learning some 3 D modeling, so I did some work visualizing our junker ship. As you can see, it is a few years out of date- next to other Constitution Class ships she is clearly past her prime.

But the old girl has some tricks left in her!


m Human Captain

OJO AND T'NETH

Feel free to communicate with each other. All ship's functions are normal, but you are the only two people on the ship.

Ojo- please role pley your creature as well, if needed. He is with the crew in the "dungeon".

V ery cool!


Female Vulcan Ensign

Sorry if I'm not posting frequently for the next week or so, I'm visiting Disney World. I intend to check the boards, but don't know how much time I'll have for posting.


Male Human Ship's Doctor

Sorry I haven't been around for a while, just got out of the hospital. Caught RSV, a respiratory infection that's only dangerous to premature babies and people with compromised immune systems. Thank the gods I'm not a preemie or compromised... Oops, I am. Compromised, that is, not a preemie. I take immune suppression drugs so I don't reject the heart that some really nice family in Maine let me have when their son stopped needing it. :( Had a really high fever but I'm doing better now. I'll try to get caught up on my all PBPs.


m Human Captain

Let's take a few days and just do some general, slow roleplay. Character building stuff.

Between, Heraclio in the dungeon, T'Neth and Ojo alone on the Aubrey, and The Doctor and the Captain exploring, this is a nice chance to slow down for a stretch.

When everyone is back to full health and back from vacation and ready to waste time at their jobs again, we can get back into the serious action!

;)


M Human (multi-ethnic) Rogue Charlatan 6

Same here. Working on getting your info up now, Doc.

Aw, dang. I probably don't need to say this, but put your health first. PBPs can wait. No worries on this end.


m Human Captain

Are we getting ready to storm into the climax?

Heraclio? Are you still with us?


M Human

Yes. Been working on some flashback weirdness.


Male Andorian Lieutenant jg

Ok, here's an awesome and weird question: Has the future as envisioned by people in the 1960s evolved past the point where computer systems use "profiles" or accounts? Does the concept of login IDs and passwords still apply?


m Human Captain

Yes.

In the TOS world, officers have different levels of access and use security codes and double-blinds to access certain files and information.


m Human Captain

OjO- I like where you're going with this!

T'Neth- you have all sorts of energy readings... assume a spike and then a plateau when the Hyperzephyrians came aboard, then another spike when the crew vanished.

The odd thing.... There is no originating point for the energy.... just general atmospheric surges throughout the nebula and environs. As if you were enveloped by the energy.

The same energy signatures now exist in the Center of the nebula, where the castle is.


m Human Captain

OJO-

Nothing of note on Gorchnik's station... if anything, it is particularly UN-used... elements left in the off position, etc.


M Human

Captain's in the midst of con season, so posting has gotten slower, but we're still here.
