Topic: A Star Trek Question
Subject: *nods*

I can see there being a regulation against displaying holy symbols, etc, whilst in uniform. There's historical precedence for that, I think... always been regulations as to what is and isn't appropriate when in uniform/on duty. Off duty and out of uniform, though, I don't think there's really any way for that to be completely quashed... or even regulated.

Topic: A Star Trek Question
Subject: Hmmmm....

...don't know that I've ever actually seen that statement before and, honestly, I don't know that I've ever seen/heard any supporting evidence in any of the Trek series of films that indicates that this is, in fact, the case.

I seem to recall various scenes throughout the franchise in which one person or the other was observing what might be considered religious customs... The wedding of Lwaxana Troi, for example, in which the wedding party and guests were all supposed to be nude (due to cultural/religious customs, I assume) is one example...

I don't know, dude... that statement and the concept of the UFP being a 'utopian' type of society just kind of rub up against one another in a really uncomfortable fashion. I can see Starfleet saying "don't ram your own religious views down the throats of others" but I can't get behind the idea that they'd out and out forbid their ranks from staying true to their faith.

Just my two bits... I could be wrong.

Also, if Starfleet did put the kibosh on it's rank-and-filers observing their religious devotions, why were there so many scenes in which they did the "burial at sea" bit, loading the fallen into flag draped coffins/torpedo casings and launching them out into space (or the Genesis planet, in Spock's case)?

Subject: Did I say cozy?

I meant 'packed in like sardines'.

40 already exceeds a series 3 Firefly's official passenger capacity of 18 by more than 100%... crank it up to 100+ souls coming aboard and we're chock full o' nuts!

Of course, "passenger capacity" as used above infers that that's the max for available sleeping areas, life support/air scrubbers not becoming overwhelmed, etc... short term, I'm sure that there's space for us to 'spread them out' a bit but.... wow.... just... WOW!!!

Topic: Voyages of the Rocinante - Firefly RPG QnA
Subject: Yup...

...40 panicky somebodies plus the existing crew and passenger compliment of Rocinante will definitely make for some cozy conditions, to say the least.

As Vanadia said, with that many bound up bungers coming aboard, traffic control is critical so, it's my thought that Fu Sheng will stay very near the "entry point" for the evacuees and perform triage - direct those with minor bumps and bruises to an "out of the way" location and help move those in worse shape and in need of more immediate attention to Willow - once we have them all aboard (or before if necessary), the little monk will switch to a more 'active role' in administering first aid or whatever to help Willow.

Miss a day checking the Inn and the posts go like gangbusters!

Good stuff all around, gang! May have some responses and what not up later today (or maybe tomorrow depending on how things go around the house, today). A couple of notes in advance of that:

Vanadia - I'm sure that Sifu Cheung would have happily accepted/approved Willow's request to join him in his devotions.

Loki - No worries about "paying little attention" to Fu Sheng in John's posts. The tech-guy's got a bit more on his mind than the "probably only going to be here for a short time, anyway" passenger. Thanks for the kind words regarding the character, though.

Had something else but it seems to have slipped my mind... :/

...changed a little from what I originally had since Brom posted so quickly for Wyatt and the Captain's instructions kind of made what I originally had in mind 'pointless' where the exploding cruise ship is concerned.

The rest of the post is more of my standard fluffy stuff meant to kind of fit Fu Sheng into the ebb and flow of life aboard this beloved firefly.

Rocinante - Eisley Moss Spaceport, Beaumonde Return Trip: Day One

Fu Sheng arrived at Rocinantes slip along with the farmers, their families, and hands early in the morning and, setting the pack that contained his few meager possessions out of the way, helped with the loading and stowage of their shipment before availing himself to Willow and allowing the lovely woman to show him to a small passengers berth, aft of the infirmary, that had been made ready for him with clean linens and a woolen blanket draped over the bunk. She was gracious and accommodating, of course, and even went as far as offering up something of an unnecessary apology for the compartments size.

This is more than enough room for me, Takahara Shao Jeh, he smiled at the woman, waving away the apology as he set his pack on the bunk and leaned his monks spade in one corner, Sheh sheh. He left his things in the small room, then, and followed Rocinantes doctor/spokesperson on a short tour through the rest of the ship meant to familiarize him with the common areas and introduce him to those crewmembers the monk hadnt had the opportunity to meet at the Double D the night prior

Apollo Shian Shen was the ships mechanic. The others often called him Wolf and the moniker fit. Outwardly, he was a large, brusque sort of fellow. Very physically imposing, with a physique obviously forged in the fires of adversity as opposed to the pursuit of the perceived ideal and an often stern visage that looked as if a true smile had scarcely ever touched it Fu Sheng knew this look well, remembered it from a reflection, long ago. Behind this, though, the little monk sensed a coarse nobility and a love for this ship and her crew that would, in time, make a smile and the mechanics lips more than passingly familiar.

Ryan Shian Shen seemed to be Wolfs counterpart; sharp on the technical side where Wolf was keener with the mechanical; smooth and polished where the big mechanic was coarse and gritty; complementary to Apollo Shian Shen in duty and demeanor, it seemed. Unlike most of the others (save for, perhaps, Willow) there was a definite air of the Core Worlds that lingered about the man and, like many of the rest, Fu Sheng sensed that this one, too, was afflicted with a private demon that he liked to keep caged and hidden from the rest of the world.

Talhone Gong Di (Aw, jus call me Asher); the epitome of youthful exuberance among Rocinantes se duhng from all that Fu Sheng could fathom. Where Wyatt was captain, Wolf and John tended the tech and mechanicals, Tess piloted the boat, and Willow served as Doctor and spokeswoman, this young man didnt seem to have a specific job aboard ship aside from generally assisting everyone. The little monk knew better than to assume that Asher was simply a hired hand, though. The affable Kid hadnt been in attendance at the Double D, last night, but Fu Sheng did recall catching a glimpse of him on the roof of an establishment across the way, eyes sharp on the streets below and rifle at the ready. Willow had introduced him as public relations which, Fu Sheng knew, was a more socially acceptable term for the guy whod wrap up negotiations with a well placed bullet or two if need be.

Trish Ay was the oldest (and most elusive) of the good people that called Rocinante home. A den mother, of sorts. Her outward scars (which she tended to hide in the shadows of her hood) could almost have been seen as a physical representation of those inner scars that others bore if Fu Sheng had bothered to see the womans scars, at all, that is Scars, physical and spiritual, were nothing new to him. He bore his own share of both and had learned that, in the end, nothing more than blemishes left behind by trials endured and obstacles overcome, milestones on a journey through life, and, as ugly as they might be, did very little to diminish the true beauty of the individual marked by them. Scars or not, Trish was a beautiful spirit and that was what the little monk saw when he looked at her.

By the end of the tour and introductions, Cheung Fu Sheng found himself more than assured that the Guild had hired the right crew for this venture. Differences and demons aside, Wyatt Sung and his people were more family than crew, there was no mistaking that, and that, in itself, was enough for the monk to feel comfortable among them. It would be a good journey, he was sure of it.

Day Three

Given his sense of ease with Rocinantes crew, Fu Sheng had found it quite easy to slip into a normal routine aboard ship. He rose early every morning, addressed his prayers and meditations, then made his way to the cargo bay to practice for an hour or so. It wasnt unusual for the entirety of the crew to be up and about by the time his exercises were finished and so the taolu were often followed up by a trip to the common area where Trish Ayi could be found preparing breakfast. He always offered his assistance, of course, be it setting the table, chopping vegetables, or stirring the congee before joining the Rocinante family at the table and delighting in the morning banter. Following breakfast and helping with the cleanup, the small monk found plenty to occupy his time, whether it was helping others with their chores, playing mahjong with Tess (or engaging in favorite pastimes with other members of the crew), finding a few moments alone in which to finally begin reading the book he had brought with him, or, simply more meditations, prayers, and practice. Of all these times, Fu Sheng had come to enjoy meal times most of all. It gave him the opportunity to see the crew 'at ease' for the most part and it always made him smile to see the 'family' emerge from the 'crew' in those conversations across the table.

The only notable interruption to this routine came on the third day when Rocinante was boarded and searched by an Alliance team. He had gone to the cargo bay when they arrived and stood silently by the pallets of food-stuffs, expecting, at first, that the Feds would certainly want to inspect the cargo. He wasnt surprised when they didnt, though From the instant they boarded it was obvious that cargo inspection wasnt high on their list of priorities. There wasnt the slightest hint of concern from the lot as to whether or not there was any contraband hidden amongst the freight. They were looking for someone not something.

Despite having never heard the names Simon and River Tam before, Fu Sheng couldnt help but be concerned for them following that visit from the Alliance. Whoever the Tams were and whatever they may have done, Fu Sheng sensed that should the Alliance manage to find and apprehend them, the Verse would likely be the darker for it.

Day Seven

Following the visit from the Alliance, it was back to the day-in-day-out routine and, as Rocinante neared the halfway point of the trip, it seemed highly likely to stay that way. There had been no more boarding actions from the Alliance (or anyone else) and scarcely so much as another ship that passed within viewing distance for the next three days. So it was that, on the morning of the seventh day, Fu Sheng found himself in the common area, sipping at a cup of tea and watching Asher play a shoot em up game on the Cortex as Trish put the final touches on this mornings breakfast. The monk didnt necessarily approve of the violent themes in the game but he did enjoy watching Asher play much as he had enjoyed watching the children at Moriah Gulch play and even found himself offering encouragement and congratulations as the young man immersed himself in the virtual action. He was just beginning to let himself get as immersed in Ashers game as the Kid himself when, suddenly, the display winked out and was almost instantly replaced with little more than white noise and static.

Asher cursed at having been interrupted in the middle of his game.

Fu Sheng blinked and looked from the young man, to Trish, then to the corridor that led forward from the common area to the bridge There was a sudden sense of confusion (but not panic) from all over the ship that was confirmed and punctuated by Trishs shrug when Fu Sheng looked questioningly in her direction. This wasnt a common occurrence, it seemed, but no one seemed overly worried or concerned at least, not until the shipwide comm. speakers hummed to life and crackled out a distress call

"This is the Star of Sihnon Cruise Liner. We are badly damaged by internal explosion. Starboard escape pods are lost. There are not enough for all passengers. We need help! In the name of Buddha, God and the 'verse please can someone hear me!!!!"

The little monks smile faded and a sense of foreboding washed over him. He indulged in another sip of his tea as his bare feet carried him across the room. He set the cup down in the sink and was about to excuse himself when the distress call was replaced by the clearer tone of the Captains voice; "This'll be your captain speakin'. It looks like we might be havin' a few guests fer supper t'night, so let's make preparations accordingly."

An honorable man. Fu Shengs smile brightened a bit as the Captain confirmed that hed be offering up Rocinantes assistance to the distressed cruise liner. He offered a quick bow to Trish; Excuse me, Auntie, then turned to catch sight of Asher already disappearing through the door and followed quickly after. He wasnt entirely sure what Captain Sung might expect of him in this situation but it hardly mattered to the little monk, right now. He would be able to help, somehow, he was sure. He made a quick trip to his own cabin and retrieved a small bundle that contained his acupuncture needles and some liniments and medicines which might come in handy, draped a string of prayer beads over one wrist, and then found his way to the infirmary where Willow was also in the midst of her own preparations.

Takahara Shao Jeh, he said, Should we bring on any injured, I have some small knowledge of healing if I might be of any use to you

((OOC: And, pause My thoughts here are that Fu Sheng will initially offer his assistance in tending to any wounded, of course, unless Wyatt is planning some sort of craziness like actually boarding the exploding cruise liner to help passengers off, in which case, if asked, hell certainly be more than willing to go with the boarding party Point me where you can use me best))
