  1. Read a review that really raved about it. Can't wait to try it!
  2. Some amazing new contributors on the News Team. I love reading the feature articles by @Sorel Kaidun and @aphelion. @Sal Taybrim also had an amazing Witty Wordsmith article that was so great. You folks are all great. Thank you for your contributions!

  5. Well, the production values look pretty incredible, I'll give them that. I couldn't glean anything coherent about the story, though.
  6. Welcome! What's STARFLEET like? I've never actually investigated it much and am curious to know more!
  7. I can update it for you with the Training team
  8. Thanks a million everyone! We couldn't have the Community News without your help
  9. It's a neat thought exercise to take the current model of scouting and put it in the future and imagine analogues to what we see today. For example, scouting associations today manage and run a bunch of camps across the world. Are there "scouting planets" or "scouting outposts" throughout the Federation? Whole worlds where scout troops venture out into the wild? The idea of there being a seemingly endless supply of habitable worlds make it feel like it wouldn't be too hard to find an unclaimed planet for any civil society organization that wanted one Do the scouts have their own ships? Has their focus changed from wilderness survival to space survival? Do you get merit badges in warp theory?
  10. It is surprising to me that, of all the ships we've seen, we didn't see Voyager land more. Considering that the poor crew never gets shore-leave, and that they're so starved for resources, it seems like any uninhabited planet with an M-Class environment would be an opportunity for Janeway to kick everyone off the ship for a few hours to collect berries and anything else they can get their hands on, with a healthy dose of fresh air. Just on the story-telling side, seems like there would have been lots more opportunities – in that case – for all kinds of crazy situations. The ground threatens to swallow up Voyager when it causes local earthquakes from setting down! Unexpected locals see Voyager and cause a prime directive crisis! Passing aliens blockade Voyager from lifting-off again! The entire crew gets sick from local pathogen!
  11. You're in good company with some other Scottish folks Welcome! Enjoy training.
  12. Here's the list of winners, for anyone that wants to help! https://forums.starbase118.net/index.php?/topic/13980-2016-awards-ceremony-– duty-post-awards/ https://forums.starbase118.net/index.php?/topic/13985-2016-awards-ceremony-–-special-awards/ https://forums.starbase118.net/index.php?/topic/13992-2016-awards-ceremony-–-length-of-service-awards/ https://forums.starbase118.net/index.php?/topic/13998-2016-awards-ceremony-–-staff-awards/ https://forums.starbase118.net/index.php?/topic/14005-2016-awards-ceremony-– general-awards/
  13. yeah, the wiki needs to be updated with all winners. We should work on that ASAP.
  14. Hope you enjoy training! We've got a small handful of people from the Netherlands here you can connect with
  15. It's on Netflix now! Has anyone watched it? Just finished it myself. I thought the format was manic and strange - reminded me of a crazy, disjointed and confusing story that Shatner tried to tell at the convention I was at last month - but one thing that really stuck with me was the stuff about Star Trek's optimistic vision of the future. We need that right now in uncertain times! Makes me hope, desperately, that the reason the new show is delayed is so they can retool the concept to be less technocratic and more about that vision of hope for humanity. Anyway, if you've watched this documentary, what'd you think?
  16. Couple other folks from the Netherlands here – you're in good company! Welcome, all!
