Subject: aCMO

You are correct - it does stand for assistant Chief Medical Officer.

Captain Blair is very hands-off; he's a delegator. If the job is done, and done correctly, he doesn't care how you do it - he trusts the departments to know their specialties better than he ever could.

So the question really is, will he work out with Doctor White?

It's not at all unusual for the counselor to be aCMO. However, it's also not at all unusual for the counselor to be attached to medical, but operate "outside" of it. Whichever way you guys (and your characters) prefer it is fine by me and the captain.

For the time being, it would be trivial to cut through the bindign chain that liks the two (thik similar to handcuffs). Of course, they will still have rings on each hnd tht will need to be removed, but that would give mobility.

There are another four passengers not affiliated with our game in the berth.

Subject: It's getting ugly...

With no time to do anything but react, Caise closes the ditance between himself and the would-be murderer with frightening speed. In less time than it takes for Burukt to squeeze the trigger, the emerald beam of the jedi's lightsaber strikes unerringly, knocking the rifle from the soldier's hands in a shower of sparks, and sending him crashing against the far bulkhead.

Even in his crumpled state, the treacherous bothan does not hesitate. In one smooth motion, he draws a blaster pistol and simultaneously keys his commlink. "I am attacked!" he shouts. "Shadoran has allied with the prisoners and a jedi! They seek to take back the ship! Backup needed at once!"

As he regains his feet, he begins firing madly!

Subject: a promotional effort

Stardate: 2366.10.19
USS Discovery, turbolift 2 - 0935

The hatch hissed open, revealing the interior of the lift. Noah stepped inside to be greeted by the familiar yellow-skinned visage of the engineer, N'doog.

"Mornin', Captaindude!" the catullan exclaimed.

Captain Blair returned the greeting and ordered the lift to the bridge with a grin. The engineer's... unique speech pattern never seemed to fail to invoke that response.

As the decks blurred by, Noah found himself strolling down memory lane once more...


Noah keyed the intercomm. "Blair to engineering. Mister N'doog, please report to my ready room."

=/= Engineering here! =/= The reply came. =/= Right on, Captaindude.. I'm on my way! =/=

The captain shook his head. Protocol had seemed so important in the past, but the engineer coming to visit seemed oblivious to it - and for some reason, it didn't matter one whit.

The Discovery was now three days out of the Gavin system, and Noah had had enough time to go through some of the records. Not long after the call, the door chime sounded. =/= Captaindude! You wanted to see me? =/=

"Come in," Noah replied, and the doorway hissed open, admitting the catuallan.

"Ensign," Blair began, "have a seat. I have been reviewing your service record. It would seem that all of your superior officers have been of the same opinion - you are an excellent engineer. Furthermore, you were invaluable to the mission on Gavin III; without your unique perspective, we might not have put togther the mystery of the molecular changes in our equipment. Quite simply, the mission may well have failed without your contributions."

The engineer seemed quite pleased by the positive words. "Whoa. Like thanks for the praising there Captaindude," came the reply. "Glad to be of service to the service if you catch my drift. You know, they sometimes say you got to think outside the box, but I figure that sometimes you got to leave the room entirely. Dig?"

Noah shook his head slightly in an effort to clear the effect that Bob's speech sometimes had on him. That the engineer was a genius could not be doubted, but sometimes, his comical manner of speaking could be so difficult to follow!

"The praise is well earned, ensign," Blair told him with a smile. "Although I will admit, it can be difficult for the rest of us to understand exactly what you are saying."

"Yeah, I get that a lot," Bob answered. "People need complicated and I like to keep it free and easy. But if I ainít calling you dude, then I ainít respectin you. Captaindude."

Noah supressed a chuckle while trying to imagine himself calling a superior officer "Captaindude" - and meaning it as a mark of respect.

"At any rate, Ensign N'doog, I called you here for a reason. I know that you have already been cited for your service on Gavin III, but I think that this would go well with it." With that, Noah produced a small, hollow pip and placed it on the desk in front of the ensign. "Computer, record. By the authority invested in me by the United Federation of Planets, I, Captain Noah Blair, hereby promote Ensign Bt... Btx... Ensign Bob N'doog to Lieutenant, Junior Grade."

If N'doog had taken offense (or even noticed) Noah's difficulty at pronunciation, he completely hid it.

"Hey! Another dot! Righteous! This is totally awesome, Captaindude. Tierís gonna freak! Just me cruising up that chain of command! Not that I want your job there, Captaindude. Unless they gave me a ship with no ray beamers and photon blaster thingies. But hey!" Bob pinned the pip on his lapel with a smile, "My Mom is gonna love this!"


The lift doors opened, ending Blair's reverie. He stepped onto the bridge, followed by Lieutenant N'doog, who took a now customary place at the engineering station.

Captaindude, reporting for duty! he mused with a grin.

Topic: Star Wars: The Tides of Fate
Subject: a turn for the interesting...

It doesn't take the TDF overlong to get the engines up and running again, though only at a reduced capacity. As a result, the flight to Tanaab takes close to three hours - a truly enjoyable time for those in the passenger berth. Captain Dulo himself is never brought into the berth, a fact that is not lost on anyone present.

Damanil's commlink crackles to life, though it is the brodcast channel, not anything directed at him. He learns that the Kul Kura has been placed into a holding position just outside of planetary orbit, and that the pssengers will now be offloaded. Indeed, as he listens to the traffic, most of the soldiers are offloaded, as well.

On the other side of the captive crew, Burukt casually stretches. The Bothan "soldier" knows that there may never be a better time; this fool of a human actually believed that he could force his way in on the Dulo bounty!

The red-haired man seems preoccupied with something over the commlink; having grown tired of the inane chatter, Burukt had already muted his. He grins wolfishly and aims his blaster rifle at the man's back. An "accidental" discharge at point blank range cannot miss, and the unfortunate use of deadly force to quell the "rebellion" of the passengers will remove any would-be witnesses.

No eye in the room processes what is about to happen, but one individual "sees" the furry finger close around the rifle's trigger. Caise is seated nearest to the bothan, and has a moment to react before the red-hired soldier is shot in the back.

USS Discovery, NCC-71847

Please note: this is a closed game; only approved members may post here. If you wish to join, please see the related recruitment thread for the game.

In an effort to promote the flow of the game, I am moving time ahead several months. My first couple of posts will cover the summary of the last mission and the crew turnover. From there, we will get into the new mission.

Stardate: 2366.10.18
USS Discovery, captain's quarters - 2225

Noah yawned as he closed the cover of the book and placed it on the nearby table. Many of his colleagues considered him a bit quiant for his preference of printed books to the various electronic methods of data delivery, but he found it to be as his mother had told him as a boy - the imagination provided a much more vivid setting for the writer's words, and there was just something that felt right with the tactile feedback of a book in his hands, something that no holovid or PADD could hope to provide.

Tonight's reading had brought him to the close of one of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classics, and for some reason, one of the great Inspector Holmes' quotes lingered in Noah's consciousness. "...when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth..."

Captain Blair found his thoughts tangenting off of the Holmes quote, down a related path, back to his first days board the Discovery. To the Gavin III mission, and the minor political outcry that had arisen from the Discovery's findings there. Indeed, the AWAY team - and, for that matter, much of the Discovery complement as a whole - had eliminated the impossible, until they had finally uncovered the truth.

The last Noah had heard, the colony's governor was awaiting her trial for violation of the Prime Directive, as well as for a host of lesser charges (including the attempted murder of her own husband). Several of her key advisors had turned against her when the truth was finally revealed, which, combined with the findings of Gavison and MacTavish, had sealed her legal fate. Of course, the logistical nightmare that had followed - the evacuation of all personnel and removal of as much Federation property as possible from the planet - had been much, much worse.

Noah poured himself a small dose of cognac from the bottle that Tuvar had given him so many months ago. As he savored the liquid, he couldn't help but smile slightly. At least the natives had cooperated when they realized that the Federation personnel were leaving - though the captain would have given almost anything to have been there the first time one of the racoolemurs had "spoken" to Mac!

How he wished he had been there himself for the discovery of a new sentient species! It was a small comfort that Talda had been on that AWAY team, and the young man held a similar passion for xenobiology. His reports had been enthusiastic and thorough, so Blair could not, in good conscience, feel too slighted. To this day, none of the Federation scientists had figured out how exactly the creatures manipulated that odd energy field on Gavin III in order to sabotage the colonists' technology. If not for ensign N'doog's "outside the box" pespective, they might never have figured out what was changing the molecular makeup of the equipment, and that had, in turn, helped to unlock the "whys" of the mystery.

In retrospect, it wasn't overly complicated. The Federation survey team had overlooked the fact that the racoolemurs were, in fact, quite intelligent - and at least somewhat telepathic, to boot, it would seem. In addition, they possessed an innate ability to manipulate that odd additional energy field in order to bring about physical changes to their enviroment.

At first, they had avoided the colonists, hoping that they would go away. When it became clear that they would not, and that the intruders intended on expanding across the planet, the natives took nonviolent - but very effective - measures to convince the colonists to leave.

The governor had been suspicious, and her husband had managed to obtain proof of the racoolemurs' intelligence. She silenced him and covered up the evidence, but the Discovery personnel had learned the truth, anyway.

Terminating the colony and placing the governor under arrest had been the right thing to do, but it hadn't been pleasant; at the time, it was even a bit intimidating to the new captain. Now, though, it was all a memory.

Noah shook his head ruefully and drained the glass. Tomorrow would be a new day... who knew what it might hold?

Subject: Star Trek: Discovery - the relaunch

Currently, all department head positions have been filled. However, you are always welcome to apply as a regular member - officer or enlisted - in any department.

After a lot of consideration and soul searching, I have decided to relaunch Star Trek: Discovery. I am well aware that we will have to recast some roles - for instance, we are losing the ultra-talented Alacrity, but with my full blessing - he will be brining back a fantastic game of his own, and does not wish to take away from both by not devoting enough time to either.

FYI, the Discovery is a Galaxy Class vessel, set in 2366 (approx season 3 of TNG). This is pre-dominion war, pre-borg.

To cover the player turnover and the gap since we last played, I will advance game time significantly - probaby to the tune of six to nine months. I will do a post to cover the old mission, however, to that you can have closure as to what happened.

Returning payers, please post your interest here!

So! The long and the short of it is that I'm looking for dedicated players. Know that Trek is free form, but not ruleless - I (and the command staff) tend to set the stage with major plot points; you are free to play your character however you wish (within reason). Need to create some NPC crewmembers to help your department? Great! Be our guest!

You must be able to post no less than weekly... Ideally, you'll post more often that that. Knwledge of trek is a good idea, though you need not be a sick fanboy to play.

Please understand that this is a wrting intensive game. Posts like "Engineer Steve acknowledges his orders and goes about maintenance duties." will not cut it. SHORT posts tend to be three paragraphs; typical posts can be much longer, depending on what is going on. Ideally, you'll be able to carry some of the story yourself; if no one is posting anything for your character to do, take some initiative and set your own scene!

Be prepared to create a rather extensive character background, including service history and such (see
for examples). I'll of course be glad to help you if you need it, but if its too much trouble to create a living character history, you probably would not enjoy the game itself.

So, what are you waiting for? Apply today!
