Subject: Well...


...I certainly consider you one of those "Golden Age Pillars," Tek. I'm pretty sure that you were around even before I joined the sit (certainly before I became active, at all) and you, sir, have run some of the most imaginative and entertaining to read games as I've ever seen on this site. On top of that, you created the Mith'ganni, which gave me the inspiration to create on of my most beloved (and, dare I say it, signature) characters in Nyx Shyndyn! That, if nothing else, makes you a pillar in my eyes, sir!

"And I'll sever the thread of any round-eyed breeder fool enough to disagree, yes?"

That said; it looks as if our beloved Inn is experiencing a resurgence, thanks, in part, to this thread, I believe, and, also, in equal parts, to the efforts of many of our other, long-standing Innmates and an influx of new ones, of late! So, I doff my hat to the Innmates, old and new, for everything that each and every one of you contributes (or has contributed... or WILL contribute) to making this place what it is!

Sincerely face-lickity,
Eol

Stardate: 2365.02.07
USS Peregrine, Bridge – 0717


“…otherwise, someone might get smothered today.”

Even over the scarcely suppressed chuckling of the bridge crew, Lt Zai heard the OPS officer’s audible gulp, at which time he, too, offered a chuckle and, also, a reassuring glance towards the OPS station. “It was simply a jest, Lt Moriden,” he grinned at the Benzite woman, adding a playful wink as he allowed himself to, finally, settle into the Big Chair, “At ease.”

“Aye, sir,” Moriden replied with a tentative smile of her own, then instantly returned her attentions to her console.

Tochi’s gaze slid back toward the viewscreen and, as often happened when he sat in the Captain’s chair, allowed himself to recall memories that weren’t wholly his own of a time when he’d held a similar position aboard a merchant vessel some hundred plus years ago. We weren’t bored then, his mind sighed, nostalgically.

Yes, Tochi countered, but the Federation was younger, we were much older, and the galaxy was a decidedly more chaotic place. That job eventually got us killed, if you recall.

Got Odia killed, his mind corrected, We are still here…

Semantics, Tochi smirked inwardly even as, without truly thinking about it, he assumed the almost sprawling posture that his symbiont’s second host had been known to affect in the captain’s seat of that, now ancient, merchant ship. He had just begun to recollect how very different that the very trade route the Peregrine now patrolled was back in Odia’s time when the turbolift door squelched open, admitting the powerfully built CTO to the bridge.

“Ensign Blackmon, I have Tactical,” Rockatansky rumbled, relieving his junior from the post.

Lt Zai listened to the two Tactical officers’ exchange…

“…Maybe some action…”

“…you know better than to speculate…”

…and flicked a glance towards the still closed door to Captain Drakes’s ready room. A little speculation is better than a lot of stir-crazy, Tochi mused; wondering, himself, exactly what command was relaying to the CO, and why it was taking Drake so long to relay the details of that communication to the rest of the bridge.

“…You are dismissed,” Rockatansky said.

“Aye aye, sir,” Blackmon responded.

Lt Zai straightened his posture in the chair and let his gaze swing toward the departing Ensign Blackmon and, then, fixing on the CTO. “Morning, Lieutenant,” he said, acknowledging Rock, “Anything from TAC that needs to be annotated in the log?”

((OOC: assuming something along the lines of “Little to nothing”…))

“Very good,” Tochi nodded, “Thank you, Lt Rockatansky.” He tapped the console to his right, made a note in the log that, yet again, TAC/SEC had had an uneventful Delta shift, and then let his eyes flit from viewscreen to Ready Room door and back, once more.

“Sir,” Ens P’Tammah said, just as Tochi was becoming irritatingly transfixed by the endlessly streaming starfield, “sensors are picking up a contact; bearing zero-two-four mark three-five.”

“Distance,” Lt Zai queried, leaning forward a bit.

“Approximately two hundred seventy thousand kilometers,” Vaela replied, “Profile is small, sir; no larger than an escape pod; but it doesn’t seem to be transmitting a distress signal of any sort.”

“Life forms?”

“Inconclusive, sir,” P’Tammah answered, her fingers dancing over her console, attempting to tweak more data from the sensors, “Sporadic, at best. There seems to be some sort of electro-magnetic interference garbling the scans. Trying to compensate, now.”

Tochi nodded and looked to Tactical; “Lt Rockatansky; bolster Mister P’Tammah’s scans and give me a tactical analysis, please.”

((OOC: Assuming an “Aye, sir” at the moment… Tann, I’ll shoot you a PM in regards to this… but it’s really nothing to worry about… stand by.))

“Ensign,” Tochi addressed Vaela, again, “set a course to intercept, maintain present velocity.”

“Aye, sir. Adjusting course; zero-two-four mark three-five; full impulse.”

Tochi tapped his comm-badge, then: =/= Bridge to Captain Drake. We’ve pinged an unknown contact just outside our patrol route, sir. We’re en route to intercept.=/=

Natasha's description is much as I imagined it might be when I was scrawling out the post for Megan.

Also, for Silent One's benefit, I've stubbed in a Medical Dept NPC, named Ryan Bachmann who could, quite possibly, bring some modicum of internal drama to the sick bay.

As to Tochi being the XO - I just figured it was cuz I was sooooo shmexy!

Subject: Early morning cram


Stardate: 2365.02.07
USS Peregrine; Observation Lounge, Deck 5 – 0700


It had been two hours or so since Petty Officer Second Class Megan Owen had slipped into the observation lounge. Aside from stopping at the replicator for a bowl of oatmeal with cinnamon and raisins, and a cup of tea when she first entered, the young shuttle pilot had scarcely moved from the table nestled in the forward corner in all that time. She had chirped out a cheery “g’mornin’” to the two other people who had seen fit to take an early breakfast (or a very late supper) in the lounge when she had first arrived, as well, but, other than that and an occasional murmuring under her breath, she had been uncharacteristically quiet for the duration. Rather than the frisky, hyper-social Megan that her shipmates were accustomed to, those that were in attendance this morning were treated to the spectacle of seeing the young shuttle pilot sitting in the corner, still and silent, with her sparkling, pale-blue eyes scarcely ever peeling away from the PADD that she held in one hand.

It was unusual… perhaps even unsettling to some… but there was good reason for her to be locked into her rapt absorption of the information on the device. Her tour aboard the Peregrine had provided her with an opportunity that she never imagined she would have been afforded; to be one of the very few NCOs in Starfleet with a Bridge Certification, and not a simple certification that would simply allow her access to the bridge, either, but one that could honestly see her sitting at the helm! The coursework and requisite examinations that would see her achieving that, though, were daunting, to say the least. In the weeks that she had been studying, already, she had come to have even more respect for CONN officers like Lt Zai and Ensign P’Tammah than she ever had before…

T’ree sep’rate courses in Starship Op’rations, alone; plus, t’ree SoSD engineerin’ courses, an’ two electives from the College o’ Space Flight Hist’ry catalogue, Megan thought, finally taking her eyes off the PADD to glance at the chrono and take a sip of her long-cold tea, An’ that’s just to qualify to take the exam! How they e’er managed ta cram all o’ this into their heads before graduatin’ Academy’s bloody astoundin’!

Her nose wrinkled by way of response to the tea’s temperature and, as she’d been staring at the PADD for so long, she rubbed at her eyes with the back of her hands in order to coax them to move again. She stretched, then, stifled a yawn, and tucked a stray lock of auburn curls that she’d unknowingly pulled free of her pony-tail back behind her ear. That done, she let her gaze sweep the near-empty lounge, again, and, smiling cheerily at the woman in OPS gold who happened to meet her eye, slipped from behind the table and made her way towards the replicator again. “G’mornin’, Tasha,” Megan chirped as she passed by Crewman Pierce’s seat, “Invent’ry this mornin’, is it?”

Natasha Pierce smiled, shook her head, and nodded toward one of the large windows at the front of the lounge; “Just taking a moment to enjoy the view, Meg.”

Megan smiled, nodded, and slid her empty cub back into the replicator niche. “Tea, English Breakfast, hot,” she said.

“You’re here very early,” Natasha noted as the replicator acknowledge Megan’s request with a beep, “Trouble sleeping?”

“Studyin’,” the waiflike shuttle pilot smiled brightly, “Didn’t wanna keep my bunkmates from getting’ their fair share o’ winks, y’know?” She gave a little shrug, claimed her fresh cup of tea from the replicator, and started back towards her own seat.

“Oh, yes,” Natasha grinned, “the XO recommended you for the Bridge Certification, didn’t he?”

Megan’s smile brightened all the more, then, and she nodded enthusiastically. “He did,” she squeaked, “C’n you believe it?” She sipped at her tea and tried, with only marginal success, to affect an exasperated pout and continued; “The curriculum’s a bugger, though! I dunno that my head’s big enough ta hold all o’ that!”

“You can always put it in your hair,” Natasha chuckled softly as Megan veritably skipped the rest of the way to her table, “There’s plenty of room there, I would suppose.”

Megan’s laughter was a tinkling of glass bells and she shook her head vigorously, causing the thick, springy mass of her ponytail to bounce crazily off her shoulders. “Aye! I could like fit the whole o’ the Peregrine in this mop, then, couldn’t I?” She slid back into her seat, indulged in another taste of her tea, and took up her PADD, again, sneaking a quick look at the time before brushing several more freshly loosed tendrils of hair from her face. “I’d had this mop all secured b’fore I left quarters,” she smirked, “but all this studyin’s got me pullin’ it out, willy-nilly. I s’pose I should put the PADD away an’ go try an’ get it restrained again, b’fore I’m due on post.”

“Finish your tea, first,” Natasha suggested with an amused smile, “I’m sure you’ve earned it and you don’t want this cup going cold, hm?”

“Sure, you’re right,” Megan returned, setting the PADD aside altogether, and cradling her cup with both hands, “May’s well enjoy one, good, hot cuppa e’re I need ta deal with Master Chief Stiff-Knickers. Kook’s talkin’ runnin’ some in-flights on th’ shuttlecraft, today, an’ if we don’t keep to schedule, V’Lur may well get a crack in that stone face o’ his. I’ll need my caffeine if I’m gonna hafta see that.”

Natasha snickered and nodded at the other woman’s assessment. “I suppose you will, Meg,” she said, gathering her own things up, now, and making ready to take her leave. “How was the oatmeal? I hope you got to eat that before it went cold?”

“Marvy,” Megan answered, “The raisins don’t have the gritty texture they did last week. Nice and plump, they were. And just the right touch o’ cinn’mon.”

“Wonderful,” Natasha said, moving for the door, now. “Best of luck with your studies, Meg. I’m sure you’ll do well. Have a good day.”

“And you, luv,” Megan smiled, “Ta!”

Crewman Pierce waved a response and disappeared into the corridor, leaving Megan alone with her tea and her study materials.

Megan savored a nice long sip, then, and, afterward glanced at the PADD, considering whether or not she should read for a few more minutes. Tea cup still cradled in both hand, she leaned towards the device to do just that but, when all of the loose auburn coils fell forward into her view, again, she made an irritated little noise and decided better of the whole thing.

“Bollocks,” she grumped, getting to her feet again, unceremoniously pouring the remainder of her tea into her mouth, and scooping up her things, “Not as if there’s gonna be no time to study later. She held the PADD tucked under an arm with one hand and reached up with the other to tug the pony-tail holder from her mane with the other as she flitted out the door. “I bloody well hope I’ve got time to braid this mess,” she said to no one in particular as her hair spilled free, engulfing her shoulders, chest, and upper back as it fell.

Subject: Flight Control Personnel


Okay, so if you glance at the roster for our game, you'll notice that I've added several NPCs to flesh out the Flight Control department of the PEREGRINE. While the bios are far from complete, I've hopefully stubbed enough info into them, so far, that you can get a general idea of what they're like as individuals and, as such, feel marginally comfortable using them in your own posts if you feel like it.

That is to say, we actually encourage you to utilize these characters in your posts, even if it's just in passing... perhaps you spied PO2 Owen in the corridor, head buried in her studies as she walked, and, being so engrossed in the info on the PADD she's carrying bumped right into you. You get the idea.

So... yeah... that's all.


For now.

Absolutely; ask away any time! Also, if nobdy's around to answer you right away and that's the only thing that's keeping you from posting, just put in the regular time and someone will update for you.

The easiest way to look at "military/24 hour time" is that any given day starts at 0000 (12:00 a.m.) and ends at 2359 (11:59 p.m.). The a.m. hours are pretty much as you'd expect them to be on a "normal" clock (with the exception of midnight being 00:00 rather than 12:00) once you get past noon (12:00 p.m.) just take whatever "normal clock" hour you need and +12... that'll give you your military time.

1200 - noon
1300 - 1 p.m.
1400 - 2 p.m.
1500 - 3 p.m.
1600 - 4 p.m.
1700 - 5 p.m.
1800 - 6 p.m.
1900 - 7 p.m.
2000 - 8 p.m.
2100 - 9 p.m.
2200 - 10 p.m.
2300 - 11 p.m.
0000 - midnight

...I'm in the process of creating (or, more accurately, fleshing out) NPC characters to fill out the Flight Control portion of our roster. If any of you Innmates out there want to nab a spot as a PC role, instead, please don't hesitate to let me know. There are 4 spots to be filled, 2 Shuttlecraft Pilots and 2 Systems Specialists, that I would happily swap out for player characters.

I'd also entertain the idea of swapping out my AFCO, Vaela P'Tammah, if somebody really wants that spot (but I kind of like her and would love to see her remain - even if someone wanted to take her over as a PC). Anyhoo... fair warning; here comes the FC crew!
