  1. This was a toss up between Archer and Kirk, for me. In the end I went with Kirk because I think Archer's situation as a pioneer sometimes left him on shaky ground where he had few alternatives and was often just winging it.
  2. Wow, truly unexpected. Thank you so much to those who considered me worthy enough of the award and congratulations once again to all the award winners of 2019! @Sal Taybrim thank you for your kind words and thank you for convincing me to take on the Marine role. I literally could not have gotten this award without your input. I too look forward to an exciting future working together on Ops.
  3. Congratulations to some of the hardest working members of the fleet! The work you all do behind, as well as in front of, the scenes is almost unfathomable! Thank you all!
  4. Congratulations again to the worthy winners of the above awards! @Sal Taybrim never has an award been more appropriate. I'm so happy to be working with and learning from you on Ops and I'm glad to see your hard work and dedication get the recognition it deserves. The fact that there are so many winners here that I am yet to sim with shows the strength of this community, I can only hope I get the chance to write with you all in the future.
  5. Congratulations one and all! Such a wonderful group of people who are all playing their part in making this community such a great and special place to be. Well done on all your hard work over the last year or however long you've been with us.
  6. Gogi is not a fan of Klingons and he'd most likely drive the Vulcans nuts! XD I think he'd like to experience Bolian culture as it's pretty similar in its values to that of his native Bardeez. He's also known to be willing to try anything at least once, so he'd love to give proper Bolian cuisine a try!
  7. There are so many things about Discovery that niggle me, that I wish they had just chosen a different time period, in all honesty. I prefer the stand-alone episode style for a start, which, if my memory serves, Discovery didn't have at all in either season. I hated the fact that they messed with Spock's history by giving him a "sister" who they then conveniently wiped from the history books in what has got to be one of the biggest cop-outs in television history - I mean, seriously, it was almost Bobby Ewing in Dallas stuff. Some of the characters grated on me and others, who I hoped they would explore more, didn't get the screen time they deserved. Honestly, I could go on with plenty more stuff that I didn't like about it, but, that being said, there were things I did like, too. I liked Saru as a character and I thought the twist with the Ba'ul was very clever. I loved Captain Pike and getting to see Number One and I would love to see them in a spin-off. I also liked the way they elaborated on Pike's future and I enjoyed the inclusion of Vina and the Talosians. Season Two was definitely a better effort, in my opinion. All-in-all, I tried to just enjoy Discovery for what it was, but I think it was just such a strange time period to choose and they took too many risks, many of which did not pay off. There were so many other things they could have done, I really don't know why they went with this. Also, what on Earth are they going to do next season? So strange. I don't hate it, but it's by far and away my least favourite Trek series.
  8. I was absolutely in love with T'Pol when Enterprise was on...I think in many ways, I still am...so anyway, easy choice for me. 😅 Putting infatuation aside, next in line would be Spock, then Riker, closely followed by Saru.
  9. Gogi will be in traditional Bardeezan garb. Just imagine his hair and beard are red/ginger. 🤣
  10. What can I say about this JP? Except... D'awww. (( Awards Ceremony )) :: The crowd was getting thick, and with no other problems at hand, Aria's mind was free to obsess and worry about nothing about that crowd. She grimaced and took a sip of her drink. :: Turner: :: walking up, teasing her a little about her shyness:: Bracing yourself for giving out promotions? Oddas: To be honest, Toni, sometimes it's still a little ... foreign. I'm a little surprised this what I do. :: Aria shrugged and looked back out on the crowd. :: Turner: :: facing the crowd with her:: I've always looked at it as one of the CO's more pleasant missions. Oddas: Well, don't tell anyone, but sometimes I actually admit I like it quite a bit. :: Aria gave Toni a humorous smile, then changed to something more genuine, she knew she owed a lot to the other woman: not everyone would look at a shy Engineer and say 'there's Command potential'. :: Turner: I never asked you to do anything that I wouldn't do myself. Well, except the things I didn't know how to do, but you did. :: Toni had the monthly report forms in mind, not to mention engineering duties.:: The secret is to project your voice to the back of the assembly, and never let them see you sweat. :: Turning to glimpse the podium, she asked.:: Turner: Is the comm on the podium working? :: Aria looked at the podium toward the back of the room, as it was mostly holographic she had to assume it was working - otherwise, it would be a fairly bad trick and more realism than she cared to experience. :: Oddas: I would imagine so. Turner: Mind if I check it for you? Technical difficulties will only make you more nervous. :: Aria gestured toward the podium with her free hand and Toni took the podium smiling about what she was about to do. Projecting her soft voice with the aid of the comm, she called for attention.:: Turner: Ladies and Gentlemen, your attention, please. :: It took a few moments for the crowd to settle down to quiet whispers and the music to stop playing in the background, but when it did, she began.:: Turner: Tonight we have gathered here on the USS Eagle for the promotions of some of the brightest, most competent officers in the fleet. Officers who work within the crew seeing to the safety of their crewmates and making decisions for the betterment of the ship and Starfleet as a whole. Some will be from different species and different planets, but they all bring unique experiences from living life, and sharing them in a cooperative effort to bring peace and tranquility to the Galaxy. A few years ago, one such officer came to the Embassy on Duronis II. She was an unassuming, shy person, who sought no public attention or acclaim, but within her glowed a spark of potential that made her stand out from the rest. :: turning to Aria, smiling:: Yes, I'm talking about you. :: Aria fought back some embarrassment, forcing herself to remain standing still and not fidget, despite being the center of too much attention in the room. She let the Admiral continue. :: Turner: Everything you did to better the crew and the Embassy allowed you to hit every mark for promotion. And this time you have hit the final mark that makes your days as a Commander come to an end. :: taking a small silver box from her pocket and removing a lone pip.:: I am pleased and proud to be the one to promote you to Captain. :: Pinning the fourth pip on Aria's collar, and hugging her congratulations, Toni turned back to the crowd, beginning the applause. Aria let herself smile and holding back her own emotions. :: Turner: Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Captain Aria Oddas! :: Stepping back and continuing her applaud with the others, tears of happiness began to well in Toni's eyes. Aria had met the potential and the next step up awaited her. Aria looked around the room, friends, crew, family, applauding for her, and she was touched. :: Oddas: Toni, everyone, thank you very much. I will spare you my normal long speech and just say, Thank You, I'm honored, and I will continue to strive to make you, and everyone proud of me.

  11. Gogi is yet to meet a dish he couldn't devour! But mum's cooking is always the best.
  12. I really enjoyed this episode. I'm loving Captain Pike and his character was the one I was most worried about going into this season. I totally agree that they need to give some of the other officers a bigger share of the limelight (and less to Tilly - controversial, I know 🙈), it's good to see that they're making a bit of an effort to do so, but an opportunity was definitely missed here to develop Owosekun's character a bit more. Does anyone else find watching Pike in action tinged with sadness in the knowledge of the fate that will eventually befall him?
  13. Since the first episodes of season one, I have enjoyed Discovery in parts and been disappointed with it in others. I still can't reconcile that all of the sudden Spock has a foster sister, I just don't know why they had to do that, to suddenly introduce this new element to the life of one of the most beloved Trek characters. I am also not a fan of the spore drive, I know season one basically couldn't have happened without it, but it just feels too advanced for a pre-TOS Trek. Despite not being happy about her being Spock's foster sister, I actually quite like Burnham's character. Tilly, however, is super annoying and off-putting for me. I was really excited about Pike and so far I like his portrayal. I'm intrigued to see how the season evolves. I hope there are more stand-alone episodes this season. I also found it hard to swallow that the Enterprise wasn't called back for the war effort. Overall, I'm still not sure why this period was chosen for a new Trek series. I personally feel that there are a lot of other options that could have been explored and would certainly have been less controversial. However, now it's here, I'm trying to make the best of it. I don't think it's terrible, but there are a lot of things I would have done differently. Just my feelings and opinions.

  15. Borg + Holodeck + Scavenger Hunt = lots of fun! ((Holodeck, USS Apollo-A)) ::Without a word, the two of them began to pick their way through the drones, who stood immaculately still. After what probably seemed like a much longer time than it actually was, they found themselves standing face-to-sphere with whatever this thing was. Dante’s mind was racing, he felt his gut dropped and a chill run down the back of his neck until he heard a voice:: Borg Queen: Greetings, one of two, two of two. ::The officers looked at each other. Evidently the sphere was addressing them as their Borg personas. It was...unsettling, to say the least. But in that unsettling voice Dante found comfort. It felt like everything around him was chaos, out of controll and trying to team him apart but there was a calm stillness in the voice, there was order. :: Borg Queen: You have wandered far from the Hive, but fear not, you are home now. :: Bliss rolled through Dante as he heard the voice speak once more. As he opened is eyes, or rather, seemed to peer harder with his holographic scanner that took the place for his eye Dante was puzzled for a second as he saw that he was now standing alone in a black void with nothing but the glowing ball. He paused for a moment, unsure what to do.:: Borg Queen: I see you are failing to understand. Perhaps you have been absent from the collective for too long. ::The darkness retreated for just a moment and Dante saw a Mandolin on the ground, just like the one he had as a boy. He hesitated before going over to it:: Borg Queen: Take it. You know what to do with it. This is where your answers lie. :: As Dante took the instrument he began to pluck out a few notes, the notes of the dirge that he had heard before. As he did the darkness retreated even more and he saw the figure of Gogi as a Drone playing some strange instrument of his own, but playing perfectly what Dante was playing. As they continued on the blackness retreated further and further revealing all of the drones in the room , still in perfect formation, holding instruments of their own. Together they filled the room with a perfect harmony of thousands of instruments playing precisely the same tune. Every note was perfect, every player in their place It was a beauty which Dante had never experienced before and he began to openly weep, overcome by the harmony of it all. Everything made sense, everything had a purpose, there was an undeniable reason for his existence and he had nothing to wonder about. :: ::Then, Dante tried to wipe the tears from his eyes and Dante found that his arms no longer moved of their own accord:: oO what’s this? My… My body. I can’t move my body! Oo :: Under the beauty of the music Dante now heard a new sound. It was the sound of millions and millions of voices screaming in pain and in anguish. countless bodies controlled while minds were suppressed, shredded and sacrificed for the order of perfection. If Dante felt nauseous before he felt like he was had just plummeted off of a cliff and his stomach rode in his throat. :: Termine: Commander!! Commander! :: Dante called out but he say that the Commander was still playing his strange instrument but deep in his eyes there was fear and tears:: oO I… Have… to.. MOVE. I Have to… RUN! I have to SAVE….. my … CREW! Oo :: With all the mental effort that Dante had inside him he willed his feet to move and slowly they began to, step after step Dante brought himself closer to Gogi and with one last heave threw his limp body at the other man’s. They both collapsed to the floor. With that the spell was broken and what was once music was now entirely screams and horror. :: Termine: Commander we have to RUN! Fairhug: ? :: The two men stood up and began to run to the perimeter of the circle, while every drone began to move slowly twoards them. Dante could now see their face and among them there were face of the crew of the Apollo,:: Termine: We need to escape this, we can’t outrun them for long and there’s too many to fight. Fairhug: ? Termine: It’s a better idea than anything I’ve got! :: From behind them the ball of light grew brighter and the screaming stopped and in it’s place a thousand voices chanted:: The Borg: We are the Borg. We will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own. Your culture will adapt to service us. Resistance is futile Lt. LG Dante Termine USS Apollo - HCO Officer A239503DT0
  16. Great job, everyone! Welcome to the fleet!
  17. Space may be the final frontier, but it's made in a Hollywood basement...

  18. Easily Trip. His sister died, his daughter died, he died, he got killed off in every alternative timeline/universe. Even his clone got killed off! In fact, his clone was bred with the intention of being sacrificed! He never ended up with T'Pol even though he should have. Why did the ENT writers hate him so much? WHY??? 😭
  19. Tough one for Gogi. Family is important to him so possibly a trip home. But he's also a wanderer and would feel equally at home on an adventure holiday as he would on a city break. So basically, you could plop him down anywhere and he'd find something to do. 😅
