  1. I think this pretty much sums up that entire scene/the Rahman/Moonsong relationship so far:
  2. I know he's too young for this (at least, I think so. Not quite sure with Vulcans), but this popped into my head while reading this: Narrator (in the voice of John Cleese): And that was the day Saavok learned he liked girls.
  3. Rahman upon overhearing Alora's laughing behind closed doors in the science lab considers walking in to investigate. Then she remembers her last encounter with Alora's plants.
  4. A few fun ones from Act 3: Hmmm, this makes me think this isn't her first time. I wouldn't be surprised if Saveron runs for office in the 2396 presidential election... and wins. I've also submitted Sarah's sim to the Top Sims contest as a great little snippet into life in other corners of the galaxy that puts our adventures in the Corridor in context. And from the mind of one Luna Walker...
  5. ((Vireinn Colony, Federation Space)) ::Images of the ships involved flashed up on the screen as the Andorian news anchor reported on the attack. Unexpected, unexplained and apparently independent of any known government or terrorist group. The slipstream starliner, the Charles Lindbergh, had been carrying the Trill Chief of Staff, Anaria Kthria, on her way to some important negotiations, along with three hundred tourists enjoying a cruise through the exotic Menthar Corridor. Suddenly, they were all involved in something none of them could have anticipated.:: ::One of the ships on the screen was very familiar.:: Vorana: You served aboard the Garuda, didn’t you? ::The Commandant of the Romulan refugee camp gave him a sidelong look from dark eyes.:: Saveron: Affirmative. ::The Vulcan acknowledged.:: However I – and the majority of the crew that I served with – transferred to the Invictaalong with Fleet Captain Kells. Vorana: The Menthar Corridor seems a volatile region of space. Saveron: An accurate summary. ::He allowed.:: It lies beyond Federation space, and is politically volatile. ::Nearby two Romulan youngsters were teaching Saavok a game of chance, but Saveron knew that his son would be listening. Like his father, the boy had friends in the Corridor.:: ::His companion snorted in amusement.:: Vorana: I think, Commander, that you are a master of the understatement. Between the Cardassians, the Tholians and the Breen, they are caught between a rock and two hard places. Never mind the Kubarey and these other new powers beyond them. ::Refugee she might be, but Shatil Vorana made it her business to keep abreast of galactic events. One never knew when her people might be able to take advantage of them. In their current situation, they could not afford to miss an opportunity.:: Saveron: The galaxy is volatile; we impose a regularity upon it. ::He observed.:: ::Turning away as the news report wound to a close, he surveyed the bare-bones community hall where many of the children were being supervised. Vorana moved ahead of him and stepped through the door into the late afternoon sunshine. The star was a yellow main-sequence primary, the light slightly yellower than on Terra, less orange than on Vulcan.:: ::Around them squat pre-fab dwellings were being arranged in pie-segments by teams of Romulans using a small crane, whilst the larger buildings were being assembled from kits. A cold wind blew and Saveron tucked his hands into the voluminous sleeves of his heavy robe. The buildings were square and grey, the ground barren, the wind biting.:: ::Commandant Vorana regarded the scene in silence for several long moments.:: Vorana: Your Federation wasn’t exactly the epitome of generosity when they gave us this world. ::She observed dryly.:: ::The Vulcan gave her a bland look.:: Saveron: You would consider something else more preferable? ::He queried.:: Vorana: I’ve seen Federation worlds, they are luxurious. You could have given us the same, and all the comforts you enjoy. ::The Vulcan knew well that there weren’t any fully terraformed temperate worlds entirely unclaimed in Federation space. This planet had been a deliberate choice, in more ways than one.:: Saveron: And made you dependant on, and indebted to, Federation generosity? You would not have thanked us. ::Vorana gave a humourless snort and looked away, knowing that he spoke the truth. Romulans were a proud people, and found taking charity difficult. And always there was the paranoid suspicion that they would be forced to reconcile – and blend – with the Vulcans. Here they had freedom to be themselves. This Vulcan man, who was nothing like what she’d come to expect from their distant kin, seemed to know them all too well.:: Vorana: Be careful Saveron; if you prove too apt you may find your posting permanent. ::That earned her a look from grey eyes, thoughts uninterpretable behind the customary mask.:: ::To his eyes Vorana was the classic Romulan, from her forehead ridges and sallow skin to her instinctive mistrust of the Federation and his people; yet she was also a talented leader and cared for her own. Saveron knew that it was imperative that the Romulans have space to preserve their culture. Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations.:: Saveron: That will not be the case. ::He told her simply.:: I received my transfer orders two hours ago. I am to return to the Corridor. My transport arrives in the morning. Vorana: Then I guess this is goodbye. ::She said dryly.:: ::He nodded.:: Vorana: Not everyone will miss you, but you helped give us something many others wouldn’t have; a place of our own. I think that many of your fellows would have seen us absorbed into your population, but we will not be Vulcans! ::She looked again at the unprepossessing sight of the plasticrete pre-fabs and the dusty plain they sat on.:: It’s more than we would have done. Saveron: That is one of the reasons that you are here, and not on t’Kashi. We would not be Romulans. END Commander Saveron Acting Ambassador Romulan Colony Vireinn
  6. I would watch this show. Made by the same guy who did the Worf of Wall Street trailer:
  7. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the theme drop down menu to select Modern instead of Basic Blue.
  8. XD ...little did they realize this was all part of Rahman's diabolical plan to get her laughs.
  9. There are now three themes to choose from: We've installed a new default theme called "Modern" with user-selectable backgrounds (you can pick from one of 6) by clicking on the paintbrush on the top right. If you prefer, you can also still use the "Basic Blue" theme. Or you can choose a dark variant of the basic blue theme, known as "Basic Dark." Just scroll down to the bottom and click on "Theme" to pick among the three. You may need to also manually change your theme to the new default if you haven't noticed the change yet to Modern. Any questions or comments, leave below.
  10. Hehe... this week on Days of Our Invicta Shoreleave We've all been there, Nia. We've all been there. Also...
  11. Haha, gotta love Nia. Who could decline that invitation?
  12. I voted Jadzia but Ezri was a great, different character, too. Plus, nice to see a new depiction of a Starfleet counselor.
  13. Well, at least we have confirmation the pilot is going to air on the network. If the numbers are impressive, I wouldn't be surprised if CBS decides to rerun episodes at some point later after their exclusive first-run on CBS All Access.
  14. Congratulations. You just earned this look.
  15. Hahaha, didn't they have them drop pots on people's heads in that Robin Hood episode?
  16. That awkward moment when you realize your boyfriend has a crush/is best friends with your ex.
  17. Attention, fleet mates! With the recent awards ceremony still fresh in our minds, an exciting new section of the wiki has just opened: the StarBase 118 Hall of Honor! Under the directive of Fleet Admiral Wolf, the awards and service ribbons pages have been completely transformed into a new comprehensive and integrated section of the wiki that serves to recognize the achievements of our fellow members. New Menus You can navigate through the awards and service ribbons through the new menus at the top of each page. Highlighting Recent Recipients Award recipients are given more prominence. For instance, the most recent award recipients are displayed right on the award overview pages such as the duty post awards, staff awards, etc. (For those wiki-curious folks, the recent recipient data for these pages is pulled directly from the individual award pages themselves, using transclusion similar to how the Fleet Roster works, meaning these pages won't need to be updated). New Individual Award Pages We hope the new Hall of Honor reflects the level of distinction that award recipients have earned. To be awarded a "fleet level" award should be something to be proud of, and the old table listings lacked the proper recognition. A full comprehensive table listing is still available for easy record keeping, especially come next awards season, but each award now has its own page. When you click on the link to an award (or the image of an award on a person's ribbon rack or display case from their bio page), you will be taken directly to that award's own page. If the award is a fleet level award (meaning only one person is usually given the award per year) or a length of service award, you will see all the recipients displayed like award plaques on a wall. For instance, here's what the page for the Rising Star Award looks like. Interactive Plaques Each plaque is interactive. Click on the name or picture to go to that person's bio. Click on the year to read the full awards ceremony from that year. Click on the writer ID number to go the user page of that character's writer. Comments, questions, and suggestions are welcome!
  18. Aww! Noble Del. And nice job, Amanda, on making Chase a grade A a hole, haha.
  19. Although to be fair, their trailers can be heavy on the action angle, too:
  20. So a fan on reddit made a new version of the trailer that was in the style of the previous JJ film trailers. What do you think? It's well done, but then again a bit cliche for blockbuster trailers, but that's what he/she was going for, so... Unlike a lot of fans, I actually wasn't that appalled about the original Beyond trailer and think it does exactly what it sets out to do: grab the attention of people who probably wouldn't normally give a second look at Trek. I think the movie holds potential, with a new setting away from Earth and an interesting idea of a reaction against colonialism (and the frontier pushing back line is a good one, reminding me of Kira telling a naive Bashir the "wilderness" he finds so exciting and where "heroes are made" is her home). That said, one of the issues I have with the new movies is the idea that the only way to expand the Trek audience is to go the Transformers-popcorn kind of flick. After films like Gravity, Interstellar, and the Martian, I kind of wish the new Trek movies would have followed that route. Given how much money those movies have made, there's no reason to think a Star Trek filmed made in that kind of more "serious" style wouldn't be well-received:
