  1. Welcome, Gary!

    For me, my favorites were TNG and Voyager. Great shows both and probably shouldn't mention it here, but I'm also a big fan of the 2004 version of Battlestar Galactica. Glad to see that I wasn't the only one that didn't enjoy Enterprise. It was alright it was just lacking something.

    Good that you made your way back to Email RPG. I'm new at it myself but am enjoying the experience immensely. I really like digging into a character that is so different than myself, doing the research, and making it work.

    And ... this is an awesomely supportive community.

    Sochya eh dif,

  2. I'm Remy and I live in the Eastern US where we are having a brief respite from single digit temperatures.
    My brother is a huge Star Trek fan. We tried playing the Star Trek version of trivial pursuit with him because some one bought it for him as a joke.
    He ran the table. Literally.
    So far, I've watched the original series, The Next Generation and Voyager. Tried to watch Enterprise but stalled about halfway through. 
    And just started working on DS9.  I found this place through a Google search when someone mentioned the idea of roleplay by email.
    Course, he does it in a forum and its based on My Little Pony of all things (I was shocked, shocked I tell you - but apparently, in his world, pony hooves can do everything hands can do.)
    While that didn't interest me, Star Trek did. And so, here I am.

    It sounds absolutely revolting. I'm with Chris on this one - chips and gravy (we northerners know our gravies...) or chips and cheese. Never together, you crazy Cannucks. Never! Mind you, we English can't talk. We have the likes of bubble and squeak and bread and dripping.

    I did chuckle at the way Tracey said 'brown gravy'. There I was thinking that the Canadian delicacy involved green gravy laugh.png

    This is old I know but I just saw an article about bubble and squeak.
    The writer, who says its used in the royal nursery, says that they put things like broccoli into the mashed potatoes as a way to introduce new vegetables.
    Sounded good ... though I'd use fresh, not old.

    *deep breath* Hi guys. I'm Izzy. I'm from the UK and I'm a journalist, writer, streamer and larper.

    I was invited into joining by a larp pal of mine who knew I was jonesing for some more Trek in my life. It's been many many years since I did text based RP online, so I'm kinda nervous. But really keen to do well. Uh.. thanks for having me.

    Welcome! I'm new here myself. You know, I was nervous going into the Academy and nervous when I was assigned to a ship ... but there really wasn't any need. Everyone I've met has been very welcoming and easy to talk to ... so, relax and have some fun. Its a great group. Seriously.

    I had a situation similar to this with Choi's player a few months ago. It was great fun. It went like this:

    Choi (human): Okay, I'm super uncomfortable, so I'm going to be curt and civil to try and wrap this interaction up.

    T'Reshik (vulcan): What a respectful and efficient human. We shall be best friends.

    Okay ... I love this.
    And I think it would be great fun to write those sorts of interactions between two Vulcans.

    - Mess hall quieter than your average library

    - Always a queue for the 3D chess board in the lounge

    - 90% of crew members have the same two haircuts

    - literally everybody knows what's up when you take two weeks' leave to go home because nobody ever takes leave otherwise

    - non Vulcan admirals hate visiting because the temperature is always cranked up high and there's no alcohol, anywhere

    - nobody knows why there is a baseball team but everyone just accepts it because apparently it's some sort of tradition now??

     

    Ok, yeah, if I ever get to Captain, I'm totally going to try and do this.

    I was reading a book about the nuances of Japanese culture back when Samurai strode the land. I was wondering if the subtleties of a culture where everyone works hard to be polite would apply to Vulcan culture? Two people can think about something logically and come to different conclusions based on their own set of experiences and knowledge. Suppose that happened? how would that be expressed in roleplay? I was thinking there could be those same sorts of subtleties (maybe microexpressions?). Is that possible?
