SLA Monthly (2012 01)

I know, I’m a day late.  Blame it on life, because that’s what actually happened.  :-)

Take a look at our spotlight sim for the month of May, the recently relaunched Starbase 27!

What’s the premise of the sim?

SB 27 is set 2 years after the Dominion War.  The Treaty of Trivas System is to be ratified by a newly formed Depata Council.  Empok Nor became StarBase 27.

Conquered Civilizations are looking to meter out vengeance on a weak Cardassian Military while Starfleet stops helping until the Cardassian Government ratifies the Trivas Treaty.  One Cardassian Liason Officer became StarBase 27’s Commander

One Starfleet Officer became a Cardassian’s XO.

Their mission:  to protect the Station, and Defend the Trivas System at all costs!

Star Base 27 is in this alone.
It’s a game of Tongo with the lives of the crew and civilians aboard the Station hanging in the balance.

What sets the sim apart?

It’s run by a Cardassian, it’s on a Cardassian Station in Cardassian territory with a half-Nausicaan XO and the rest mostly Star fleet crew. It’s on a station… so its unique in every way.

Why should I be interested in SB27?

It’s Action and character development.  Just show up.  Crew assignments will be given by preference on first come first serve at every sim.
No complicated application necessary to sim the ship.  Regular crew get preferential assignments.
There will be no R and R sims… If there will be no cancellations if there is 1 or 31 people in the chat there will be a sim.
Anything else we should know?
It’s run ‘old school’.  Fast-paced with tags to keep everyone straight about who is what position talking to whoever and action, action, action.
Come join the fun Sunday’s at 6pm EST

“All Alone In the Night, Well Kydd is Here as are Others” by Danae Tullaris
from February 26, 2007

Sitting at helm, tapping on her console. Is she working…? Mebbe.

I am stuck on the bridge with Kydd in command. We are all going to die. We are so dead. And what am I doing right now? I am mapping this strange place with the information pouring in from sensors. Still, Kydd is prattling on about something or another. I am trying, Goddess I am trying, to tune him out. My ears keep twitching. At least for him it gives the appearance that I am actually listening to him.

Right now, I just want to be off-duty and with John. He is sleeping right now. Watching him sleep puts a smile on my face. Of course, it also makes me just want to snuggle him. Little does he know that while he has been sleeping, I have been sneaking in and taking pictures. If he finds out, I am in for it! His gamma shift duty should be ending soon, thankfully. It will be nice to be back on the same schedule. But, I better get all my Kydd picking out of the way or I will be in trouble again.

It is rather fun to torment Kydd. I should tell him that he tastes like chicken. That would get his sheep. Sheep? Yeah, that sounds about right. Hmm, or maybe I should tell him he tastes like crap. Then again, I haven’t eaten crap so I wouldn’t know. Yes, definitely chicken without the feathers. That would just be weird if he had feathers. But, that does give me an idea. I wonder if I could put feathers on him? Probably. I would just have to sneak out the various powders and supplies, conjure up the formula, say the strange words of my ancestors (whomever they may be), and presto…instant chicken.

With my luck, I’d probably turn him into an ost-something-or-another. Too bad he has already been a flag. That was a neat trick. Flap, flap, flap in the breeze. Q is a genious for that one. Now, he can flap his wings. Maybe the drunk monkey would like a snack. Someone please give him back his spork.
