  1. I agree about "The Thaw" ... but I had to go with "Schisms." Saw that one when I was a kid and it stuck with me, to the point that I haven't wanted to watch it again as an adult. The clicking! The clicking!
  2. Gotta jump on the "In a Mirror, Darkly" train. The Mirror Universe felt so fully realized, and we got so many nice and plot-relevant Easter eggs -- the Constitution-class! The Gorn! The Tholians!
  3. Great Bird, I wish we could've had more of Julian living his 007 fantasy.
  4. I went for "The Visitor" too, but this was a REALLY hard choice. "Family" and "The Inner Light" are both phenomenal, but what pushed "The Visitor" over the edge for me is that you know, you know Patrick Stewart is a powerhouse actor and so you expect the best ... whereas "The Visitor" showed the Jake-Ben dynamic primarily via an actor we didn't know in one of the parts! And man, did it pay off.
  5. Well done to everyone! I'm really proud of Matt, Wes, and Jacob especially because I know how talented you guys are firsthand ... but honestly, the duty post awards are my favorite category every year because it shows off how talented folks around the fleet are at bringing their specialties to life. Congratulations to you all!
  6. The staff awards this year reflect correctly the dedication and commitment of the folks who toil behind the scenes to make sure everything runs -- not like clockwork, which would be rote and boring, but like some kind of Dali-esque, zany-as-heck clock that keeps things continuously interesting. Congratulations!
  7. Well done everyone, and I'm so very impressed by those folks who have won length of service awards. A year of simming and continuous membership in this community is no small thing, to say nothing of those folks who have simmed for even longer periods, and you should all be immensely proud of your accomplishments!
  8. Brilliant work all around! I'm continually awed and inspired by the impressive community of simmers at Starbase 118, and this set of awards is an excellent way to reflect on the best of our community!
  9. I know there are tougher ships, but it has to be the Galaxy for me. The way they were shown to be the backbone in the Dominion War, oof. *chef's kiss*
  10. I chose Timothy Dalton as Kells's avatar years ago at the suggestion of @Moonsong, and finding formalwear for a former James Bond makes dressing Kells for the awards a snap! (Although he looks kinda angry here. So maybe he doesn't like dressing up, eh?)
  11. Very, very impressed with how well @Sirok handled this beautiful mission-ending sim! Plus the Interstellar soundtrack fits VERY well. -- OCC::I recommend read this post (and all the last ones) with this soundtrack: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lM5IxG1qhl0 _____________________________________________________ ((Main Engineering, USS Thor)) Sirok: =/\= Sirok to Captain Kells.

  12. I have an inexplicable soft spot for the lil' weirdo that is the Oberth class.
  13. I just think Janeway could do anything, soooo
  14. I really want Star Trek: The West Wing. Show me how those politics actually work!
  15. Actual footage of Aron parading around in a skant and the senior staff's appreciation. (And also DiDa Ritz is awesome.)
  16. So clearly I had to drop back in to say hello, to thank everyone above for their kind words, and to congratulate my fellow winners! I'll start with James, who is absolutely deserving of the Picard Award and the T'Pau Cluster. I was endlessly disappointed when I saw that James was taking some time away from the group several summers ago, even though I knew it was necessary, and I hoped that -- when he came back -- he would do so with a vengeance. He exceeded my expectations at every turn! James has redefined in many ways how our group functions and how simming takes place. I've been lucky
  17. My skant powers are tingling! What's going on around here?!
  18. ((Engineering, USS Za)) :: As soon as Laura entered engineering she knew something wasn't quite right, it didn't sound right. She couldn't put her finger on it at first, then she noticed the warp core it wasn't glowing or make the usual humming sound she was accustom too. :: :: She moved quickly towards the warp core and heard people busying around. :: Human crewman: Ready to reactive reactor injectors Bajoran crewman: Go ahead. I'll monitor the anti-matter flow from here. :: Laura watched as the warp core light up, it was an impressive site. :
  19. ((Arboretum, Deep Space 32)) ::It was a strange thing, this need for nature. And it was a need, a telling mark of the tether that bound them to planets; to ground and open sky and growing things. They were, all of them, creatures of living worlds, not truly adapted to an existence in space, however much their technology might allow them to move through the dark between the stars. And so they brought these little pieces of planetary ecology with them.:: ::The trees of Deep Space 32's Arboretum were majestic, the small patch of grass lush and inviting, to those who were accus
  20. I went with my absolute favorite, but mad respect for another program. I think you'll know what I'm talking about if you take a good look....
  21. I can't not post this again, because it was that good!
  22. Just saw it yesterday! A lot of folks have said what I've been thinking already, esp. Rich & Ryan, but there's one major thing I want to give them credit for: I had a few other problems with the film, but overall it was a hugely and unexpectedly fun time.
  23. I've seen a lot of discussion of the new show around the interwebs. A lot, and I mean a lot, has been about the design of the ship. To this, my favorite community of interweb Trekkies, I add my thoughts: They could have them flying around in a giant rubber duck with the registry code NCC-Z 1/2, and at this point I wouldn't care, because... I'M JUST SO EXCITED WE'RE GETTING A NEW TREK SHOW!
