  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. Ryan. Ryan, no. Please, won't you think of the children?
  4. Mandy beat me to it, but I have to throw in this gif given what Ryan said about his TOS watching....
  5. I've chosen to go with my first character to reach the rank of fleet captain, Cassandra Egan Manno, for my dressy avatar--but the actress who portrays her, Danai Gurira, has too many flawless looks to go with just one, so I've chosen this one for these festivities: And, because I can't leave Kells out, here's a particularly fun (if irritatingly watermarked) image of his actor, Timothy Dalton, posing with Whoopi Goldberg--perhaps Aron Kells has met the erstwhile Guinan?
  6. So many congratulations to all of our winners! If you guys haven't seen Mandy's amazing working with the videos and toons, I'd encourage you to swing by the Invicta forums. It isn't every day that you win an award you inspired--and I mean it very much when I say that the impressiveness she's brought to the forums was the reason I proposed Quark's Bar in the first place. Well done! Also, a special shoutout to our first Luminary Award winner! Over the years, I've seen some very impressive junior members come through (many of whom have ended up as captains or above), and this year, I th
  7. As Mandy knows (to her chagrin, haha), Lindsey Buckingham was my original avatar for Kells. So this is every kind of appropriate!
  8. I was trying to make it as serious as possible for the characters, even while I was giggling. Oh, delicious, ironic humor!
  9. I had to go with Ivanova, for XO (of course!). It was hard to pass up Ripley, but IMO she's not a good fit for the Star Trek universe. I absolutely would've picked Scully over Mulder (and maybe over the rest of the options, too!). Fun poll topic! I love me some crossovers.
  10. I'm 100% sure this will never happen! It's never happened! It isn't happening now!
  11. Ditto! I loved my old Encyclopedia back in the day and I'd get this just for the sake of having a reference guide when I'm not online -- but, wow, they're really pushing it with that hundred dollar tag! I think my old one was maybe thirty bucks new, back when I ogled it in and then finally bought it from Waldenbooks. Still, it's pretty awesome that there's a new one being released! Maybe the price'll come down after a few months.
  12. ((Q Continuum)) ::She smirked with amusement.:: Q: So much for the exchange of rooks. Quana: I don’t follow your meaning. :: She looked at her with a raised eyebrow.:: Q: You obviously weren’t paying attention, were you? Quana: Not particularly. Like I said, they need conflict and you refuse to provide anything worth while. Q: Conflict is more than the physical drama. It is mental as well. Despite their simplicity, they are quite adaptable. ::She flicked her fingers and a view of Aron Kells appeared before them.:: Q: He navigated his challenge rather well I think. :;glances at Quana.:: No, you
  13. This seems particularly relevant: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/RecycledINSPACE Though I don't so much think of TOS as recycling in space as in being really uneven with their allusions. New alien species? Cool Roman analogy. "But, guys, know what would be even better? Actual Romans!" *facepalm* But I am glad you included him, Rich! Of all the possibilities for the Invicta's bridge, that particular diplomat was not one that occurred to me
  14. (( Corridors, USS Invicta )) ::A new ship, and a new school. Not *entirely* new, something for which she was grateful. The faces were mostly the same, and of course Dylan now had new partner in crime, in form of Saavok. He didn't really need walking to the classroom, and she suspected it wouldn't be long before he wanted to be left to get to school alone. But for now, he was content with the company and she liked the few extra moments it gave her with her eldest. ::Though her company was lacking that morning. While Amelia was contentedly cocooned in her sling, as ever soothed by motion, Quinn
  15. // Captain's Personal Log, SD 239206.19 // Of course I didn't see it coming. Who would have? Who would have ever thought that he would have by the Architecting President? No one, that's who. Which is why, of course, I thought it was okay to let my mind wander in the first place. (( Main Reception Hall, USS Invicta )) Egan Manno: Kells! :: Egan Manno's voice was a whisper, albeit it a pointed one. Her elbow, on the other hand, was not so soft. He was surprised, a moment later, that she'd risked it; some of the cameras were already on them, and they would've caught not only that motion but als
  16. I just really liked the phrasing here. I knew exactly what this meant (as did Aron) but it's just unusual enough to establish the Va Wreth as alien but with the prerequisite commonalities for a good dialogue. Well done, Mandy!
  17. Harry Ross is just the creepiest. Well done on making me squirm with every line, Emma!
  18. Oh lord, as soon as I saw that sim and I was like OH NO HE'S BAAAAAACK
  19. Greetings and salutations, all! I'm pleased to say that Jess, Rich, and I have thought through things carefully, and we're pleased to announce that the winner of the Design Astrofori I Contest is Alora DeVeau, whose organic design we found especially captivating. Maxwell Traenor is our runner-up, with his excellent submission that showcased his graphics skills. We have banners for both winner and runner-up, which represent the colors of the four major powers aboard the station (UFOP, Romulan Empire, Breen Confederacy, and Kubarey Confederation). Of course, as promised in the contest descriptio
  20. Tim Russ was definitely a close second, but it has to go to Nimoy. I do wish we could've seen more of Kirstie Alley, though, especially her take on the Vulcan/Romulan mix.
  21. I do like J-Frakes's style a lot, but in the end it's Nicholas Meyer's directorly belief that starships should be shot like their oceangoing counterparts (or like submarines -- huzzah Mutara Nebula!) that wins me over.
  22. ((Lt DeVeau’s Quarters, USS Garuda))::There was a problem with being officially off duty - it meant it was difficult to work out of the eyes of those who had told her to take some time off. While Alora wasn't generally the sort to leave things undone, she also wasn't a workaholic either. Usually she knew how to balance work and pleasure and still participated in activities that would keep her busy. Alora couldn't shake the guilt, especially in light of her recent findings. Upon discovering the Chief of Science working against orders, she'd been ordered, again, back to her quarters, or the
  23. ((Holodeck 4)) ((Standard Phaser Training Simulation)) ::Raissa frowned at the different types of phasers laid out on the counter in front of her along with the species neutral targets arrayed at varying distances. She was a counselor, not a security officer.:: Moonsong: Why are we here again? :: Evan stood nearby, arms clasped behind his back as he regarded Raissa. :: Delano: One of my responsibilities as the chief of security is to ensure all senior officers maintain proficiency with standard armaments. According to the log, you’re overdue. Moonsong: Running away screaming isn't an option?
