Topic: Star Trek: the Edge of Duty Recruitment
Subject: ops


Chief of Operations is a bridge crew character - one of the main characters in the game.

Have you ever watched Star Trek: the Next Generation? Commander Data was the Ops Chief of the Enterprise.

Operations is responsible for ship status, for coordinating with engineering, science, and tactical. They handle most communications, they make sure the ship is supplied... heck, the Ops Chief is nominally in charge of the cafeteria. lol

I may also toss out another reddit LFG post. It reeled in our Chief Science Officer, after all...

We need an Ops chief pretty bad. We can roll with an NPC, but I prefer a breathing person.

I've had one Innmate PM me some casual interest, but they have so far resisted my active recruitment. :/

Shucks, Roger. Thanks!

I'm trying to do some sitewide updates to get things to integrate a little better. I plan to swap out the popups there at some point, as they can get in the way of the links.

All in good time, I suppose.

Last night, I updated security on another half dozen scripts. I know that nobody sees that, but it's necessary work to be done to modernize the site and make it more scalable.

As I look, the only thing I see is that you have to be logged in. You should be able to add a character if you are logged in.

And, FWIW, I've added Duncan's guy to the roster.

Sorry, I'm drawing a blank. I will admit that I never watched a ton of DS9, though.

You're not talking about the Ferrengi, are you? Short guys, big ears and noses?

Topic: Star Trek: the Edge of Duty Recruitment
Subject: not yet...


Deep Space Nine is still under Cardassian control in 2365 (our game time). The station was built in 2346, which would make it too new for your character to have been born aboard it... but regardless, it does not come under Federation control until 2369.

You can, however, choose to be from any one of a huge number of Federation starbases. You don't have to go with a canon item, either; feel free to say something like "born on Starbase 212", and nobody will blink an eye.

Subject: you're missing 'em


Head to the Q&A thread for this game, and check the link to the Trek Tools (or grab it from the Armory dropdown in the main menu).

Choose USS Peregrine, go to roster; you can directly add your character there if you like - and you can just stub it in to start with, then edit later.

If you want to see some sample characters, instead pick the USS Discovery from the Trek tools and go to that roster. All characters are clickable.

Hi there, Dox!

First off, welcome to the Inn. Second, you need to come up with a basic concept. A name, a physical description, your character's personality, etc. I can help you put together a full bio/service record, and you'll be good to go.

Feel free to shoot me a PM, and we'll go from there.

I copied the character over from Discovery, and made the rank adjustment. Congrats, you have the most complete character on the roster page right now!

Posted on 2016-02-23 at 15:49:01.

Topic: Star Trek: the Edge of Duty Recruitment
Subject: yep


You can indeed use her. Like I said, this is three years earlier than Discovery; we bump her rank down from Lt. Commander to Lieutenant, and Bob's your uncle. Same character is fine.

You'll probably need to create new NPCs for your department (if you care to do so). Note that Lana is the only medical officer aboard the Peregrine. I have the CMO, three nurses, two medical techs, one medical specialist, one medical yeoman - that's the grand sum of the medical department.

It's a little ship.

Lana?

You know, I don't see why that wouldn't work. Lana was a Lt. Commander in Discovery, which was set in 2368. In 2365 (current time for this game), she could have been the CMO on the much smaller Peregrine, holding the rank of Lieutenant.

Works for me.

And we'd love to have you.

Check the first page of this thread for the open spots. come up with a general concept and send it to me, we can flesh it out later.

Topic: Star Trek: the Edge of Duty Q&A
Subject: Crew compliment and roster


I've updated the crew compliment document. Since I've decided that we're going to be using the Saber -P variant (patrol), we'll have reduced science and diplomatic capabilities, which are offset by increased combat capabilities and security personnel. As such, I've added one tactical office and four enlisteds to our compliment.

*****************************************

Edit: I have hijacked this spot to post the standing duty roster, by character. Shifts are divided into alpha, beta, and gamma - roughly corresponding to day shift, evening shift, and night shift.

Please understand that there can certainly be variations on this - a couple of people swap shifts, somebody gets a rare bridge shift, somebody gets an extra off day, etc. However, it should be really useful to help people figure out where they should be on a given day. Obviously, seniority grants a more stable, favorable schedule - fewer late night shifts, fewer rotating shifts (i.e. alpha one day, gamma another). I have tried to keep people on ROUGHLY the same shift wherever possible, and when that isn't possible, I try to keep shifts one step off (i.e. alpha to beta, but not to gamma).

NOTE: the first day of our game (2365.02.07) is a Sunday!

If you have issues or want to adjust this, just let me know, and I'll see what I can do.

Standard shifts are eight hours long, and flow as follows:
Alpha: 0700-1500
Beta: 1500-2300
Gamma: 2300-0700

A responsible officer should expect to be at their duty station a good fifteen minutes before the shift starts, so as to get report and be up to speed.

Medical shifts are twelve hours long, and instead take the following schedule:
Alpha: 0700-1900
Beta: 1900-0700

Typically medical shifts are referred to as "Sickbay Alpha, Sickbay Beta" so as to avoid confusion.

I'll be more than happy to help you out.

Things to start with: what does your character look like? What's his name? What's his personality like? What are his interests, aspirations? Why is he in Starfleet?

Let's get the critical stuff first, then we can fill out service record and such.

Subject: CTO


The Chief Tactical Officer spot is available. The XO will be a title, not necessarily a spot; with only fifteen officers and sixty total crew, we can't really spare an XO who isn't doing some other duty.

What I would like is a full concept from you, and from there, we'll talk about chain of command.

Subject: on timeline such...


This game will begin in early 2365, which roughly coincides with season two of Star Trek: the Next Generation. The Borg attack and the Battle of Wolf 359 is two plus years in the future.

To avoid a long, drawn out process where we spend weeks on posts dedicated to each main character meeting the other main characters, please assume that - unless you clear it with me first - all characters will have been on board the Peregrine for a minimum of a couple of months. If you would prefer that your character has been here longer, that would be fine.

Commander Drake has been the CO of the Peregrine for about six months now, and by and large, the tour has been uneventful.
