  1. I've always wanted more information on the Nova's waverider. It's an atmospheric shuttlecraft. I would imagine on a science vessel it has to be pretty neato.
  2. Welcome to our community! I agree that you've found the right place.
  3. I've always loved the majesty of Voyager's opening credits. A tiny ship with a HUGE bravado of brass.
  4. Welcome! I've been simming for about the same amount of time. I'm sure you'll find this a great place.
  5. Greetings! I'm very excited to begin the process to join this community. I've researched a number of different communities and found this one to be quite active and well organized. There are some online "fleets" that work hard to be big. Everyone who applies can get a ship. That's not exactly my motivation. I'm interested in flexing my creative writing muscles. For many years I belonged to an online writing community and have not found the same connection as I have in the past. That site has thousands of members and if you step away due to life concerns things can move too fast and it's tough to get back into the culture. So far it's been a pleasant experience applying. I have tons of questions, but am practicing patience to savor these early moments. Often joining and being the newbie is something we want to rush out of quickly, but I'm going to lavish in the attention and time. 🤭 -Dr Moon (Cadet Airik Tierney)
  6. Gazing at the impressive expanse floating in a vacuum of space, Airik Tierney had to admit it was much bigger than he envisioned in his mind. Having primarily been a land-dweller, the cadet was less accustomed to starbases as he was to planetary stations. The awe still caught him each time he came upon one of the feats of scientific and engineering minds. Cadet Tierney blinked with interruption by a glimpse of his face reflecting on the side panel of the transport’s vessels window. The image of his pale face and shocking white hair made him appear almost like a specter, old or ill. It was most common on the world of Deneb IV where his people, the Bandi, called home, but not as common in the broader communities of the Federation. Unfortunate for most Bandi their species is most known because a small group of unscrupulous leaders held a space dwelling being under enslavement during the construction of the Federation’s Farpoint Station. The Bandi’s leader, Zorn, was particularly insensitive to the realities of his poor leadership. Groppler Zorn was impeached and a new government elected by the people of Deneb IV. Since then the planet gained entrance into the Federation. Farpoint Station was rebuilt using advanced technology with particular sensitivity to the impact of design on culture and life. It was in his early childhood Airik felt an odd calling to help ease the emotional turbulence experienced by others. Living near Farpoint Station allowed him interactions with species from across the cosmos. With his Bandi’s inherent ability to sense the needs and emotions of others, he easily gained friendships with members of Starfleet. It greatly influenced his decision to join. Prior to formal entrance into the Academy, Airik began training in psychology and psychiatry. This course of study followed him through his Academy training. In the end Airik settled on psychiatry with specialization in psychopharmacology. His scientific mind found interest in the interactions of substances – be they food, herbal, or pharmaceutical – on the human mind. Technically trained in the methods of talk therapy, he has introduced alternative methods of healing the mind beyond talk. As the transport vessel docked and opened the hatch allowing passengers to disembark, Airik made his way onto the Starbase. He made attempts to learn what he could about the specifications prior to his arrival. The engineering feats employed in the construction were truly exceptional. The Starbase hosted a myriad of sub-communities connected via a large commercial sector. It was a large city itself and with that full of culture and opportunity. It was all so new, so different and Airik caught himself wishing time moved faster. -Cadet Airik Tierney
  7. Howdy there. I'm Dr Moon(e), it's my real name. Most people call me Moon. I've applied under a character whose name is Airik. I'm still fairly flexible in the medical or other sciences. I applied using a race that was not listed in the database, but is a known race in the Star Trek universe and isn't anything obscure. I live in the U.S. in the State of Minnesota. I found this site through a Google search. I was a big Star Trek pbem fan a few years ago - er - 20 years ago which makes me seem old, even at 41. I fell away from it for many years and am really interested in getting back. I was/am a big TNG fan and have seen all the different series except I think the cartoon (does that even count). For the last 12 years I've operated a consulting business working with nonprofits and governments on policy and programs for older adults and their caregivers as well as some policy for people with disabilities. This month I've made a big transition and decided to accept a full-time faculty position at the local university where I oversee work in gerontology (the study of aging). I guess that's all for now. I'm accustomed to using boards, but each have their own functions and idiosyncrasies so I hope I can find my way.
