  1. @Meidra Sinir wrote this, and I thought it was outstanding. (( Prime ministerial offices, Vman – Da’al capital city )) Zeneth watched as the Prime Minister deftly spun his diplomatic web, inwardly rolling her eyes at his use of existential crisis. Always the showman, but was he really in tune with this new audience? StarFleet, from what she’d understood from her research, was not just humans, but many other species. What worked with one species might not be accepted by another. Still, she remained silent as her friend played the benevolent leader, only concerned with the safety of hi

  2. Right, 'cause this poll was for TNG and I just can't read! 😂 For me, it was the 'tude. She wasn't just the stereotypical Starfleet officer. If she thought there was a better way to do it, she'd let you know, regs be damned. Also, the come from behind story. When she was first introduced, she had been in the stockade for something that I was never quite sure about. Everyone disliked her. But she proved herself and even earned the respect of both Picard and Riker. And Guinan, and you know if Guinan likes you, you gotta be okay. 😀

  3. I think Ro's character was a popular choice because of her characterization. She was different from the other crew members. Less polished. Shady background. Not perfect. There was conflict with other members of the crew and she seemed to have a chip on her shoulder. She was someone more imperfect that we could relate to rather than someone on a moral pedestal we could strive to like the rest of the cast. Conflict helps to make good stories and so while she wasn't on the show as long as some of the other characters, her appeal grew quicker. I found her to be someone that I did not initially lik

  4. @Judiciar Westus Grevious never disappoints to provide realistic and insightful descriptions, has perfect timing for both action and humour and is more than able to get you hooked with his sims, no matter what he's depicting. Man, you are really cool, keep it up!

  5. One of the problems with SB118 is it's high quality of writing. I'm constantly shamed by the beautiful writings of others, and wish I could infuse humour or realism the way others do. @Judiciar Westus Grevious uses his experience to give us insight into what it's like to be in the military, even one that's space faring. It's a pleasure and honour to write with him and every single other person in this community. ((Valkyrie 4, Grey mode, Orbiting New Bajor)) Josh Henderson had wanted to be a pilot ever since he saw his first air show when he was seven. Alas, it wasn’t in

  6. I am so late to this party but out of all the new Star Trek announcements, this one really got my attention. I always used the Star Trek Pike Comic books as my pre-Kirk canon so it'll be fun to see what they do with this Enterprise!

  8. That @Iron Captain Geffrond Tell is a great writer is a fact, like the water is wet and the sun will rise again tomorrow (unless you are very close to one of the poles ) For that alone, this SIM already deserves to be read. If we add to that the presence of fighter pilots (which I think polarizes the fans quite a bit) with a slightly different perspective quite interesting to read, the magnificent way of knitting tags for others without directing the answers too much and that this SIM is a scene that connects two other scenes (so that the whole act gains a more cinematographic momentum)

  9. Whole heartily agreed! Responding to this was a blast. Outstanding set-up, and elegantly written.

  10. Following on from last week's poll for Best Male Character of TNG , this week we want to explore what made the women of TNG special and which of these wonderful women captured your attention week on week. Were you a devoted fan of Beverly Crusher? Most often the soothing voice in troubled waters, our forthright Doctor Crusher could whittle the woes in the medical world with nary a scalpel spent in the process. In the series, she slipped into the role of the ship's Chief Medical Officer with ease, providing the contrary opinions to Picard, and the sole parent of Wesley. Arguably included

  11. DEEP SPACE NINE, BAJOR SYSTEM — The crew of the USS Thor (NCC-82607), temporarily housed aboard Federation Station Deep Space Nine, have spent the last several weeks pursuing recreational activities in and around the Bajoran system while their ship received significant repairs and upgrades. “The ship has received an extensive refit of its primary systems,” Chief Engineer Lieutenant JG Sirok said as he paused and arched an eyebrow before continuing. “Although with the propensity of this ship to get into trouble, it is likely that they will need the next refit in six months.” While staying in

  13. Returning after a LOA is not an easy task. Doing it in the middle of a mission, even less so. Still, @Furious Angel Benvus Garci has managed to do it smoothly, bringing the good humour and light-hearted spirit that is his trademark and taking the chance to tie up loose ends (or leave breadcrumbs for future developments) for other crewmembers, turning this in a magnificent SIM, no doubt. Kudos and praises and, overall, welcome back!

  16. Hi everyone! I've always been interested in the minor ship classes in Star Trek - the ones that show up for about five seconds in an episode or two or else exist to be blown up in some way or other. My personal favourite of these is the Sydney class (like the USS Jenolan) because it has a design that I just find really neat as a midway point between a shuttle and a larger ship. What's your favourite?

  17. Such a hard choice, to be honest. And what about the Dax's (Jadzia and Ezri)? I cast my vote, but honestly it was a tie.

  19. OOC: I was not ready for this. ((Far Rock Resort, Endaasi)) Salzaar had needed some time away, and Tenna had respected that. But there was a certain point where she went from respecting his need for space and becoming genuinely concerned for his wellbeing. That time had come, and she had attempted to contact him, unsuccessfully. So Tenna had gone sleuthing, a skill she was quite good at after years of working in trade and development. She knew her boss had gone down to Endaasi and hadn't returned to th

  20. I love going on missions with my fellow writers. Exploring situations and seeing how our characters respond is definitely a wonderful experience. However, one of my favourite parts is seeing what people do with their personal arcs, and that allows me as a reader to follow along in their journey. Sheila's journey has been on going, but I love how Aly is giving us insight to a new sort of beginning along that journey. I love how she makes it easy to connect with her character, and allows us a glimpse of what it might be like to be Sheila. ((Sheila Bailey’s Quarters - Habitat Areas

  21. Data 100%. I was never a big TNG fan, but my kids watched a couple of episodes and they got absolutely hooked on Data. A character who experienced the world the way they do was great for them to see. Some of them still watch TNG with me, just so we can talk about Data.

  22. Mister Riker, for the exact reasons, Mister ch'Ranni mentioned above. 🙂 Although Mister Picard follows closely.

  23. Another good example of @ElandraDAR 's good work. Not only does she add extra weight to the scene, but she is able to write 3 very different characters in it, knitting everything masterfully with the contributions of her cowriters here: @Iron Captain Geffrond Tell , @Sirok and @Tara Wilkins . An excellent job and a great way to close a scene leaving us full of questions and wanting to know more. Good work to you all!
