  1. The Transport Union have a right to be concerned about their safety. Its unfortunate that they haven't been provided with proper security and that they've had to resort to a strike for this issue to be noticed. As for Bacco's handling the situation . . . what more and what less could she honestly do. One can't simply snap their fingers and immediately assign security forces to these ships, and it's not really Starfleet's job to play the role of security guards.
  2. Peace talks between Brekka and Ornara end with a fistfight between planetary ambassadorsBy Vian NovaStardate 239201.19 ORNARA — Peace talks between the two civilizations of Ornara and Brekka came to a spectacular end today when an Ornaran ambassador threw a fist at a Brekkian delegate. The sudden aggression by Ambassador Wenrequi Cartop was reportedly caused by "an offensive remark regarding the Ornaran people" from the Brekkian delegate Renei Oberm. The Brekkian delegate denies this remark was ever made. Having finally removed the addictive drug felicium, of which was initially supplied to the Ornarans by the Brekkians to combat a fatal plague many years ago, from the streets of Ornara, the peace talks between the two were supposed to abolish murmurs of war between the two races and ease the tense relationship built up since the Starfleet intervention in 2364, when it was revealed to the Ornaran race that the Brekkians were exploiting them for a better lifestyle. Since then, the Ornarans have become a thriving race, now a unified planet and having become warp capable in recent years. The Brekkians, however, have simply stalled in their current way of life. "Despite reports of their own technological advances, the Brekkian race still heavily rely on Ornaran engineering," says Ornaran representative Kyyn Serrenor. "They are in severe disarray. Brekka have several different governing entities, all of whom want something different for their part of Brekka, making it difficult to work with their 23 ambassadors. Parts of their world are at the present moment facing things like famine and interstate conflicts—as much as they deny it, they need our help." Regardless of the urging by his fellow delegates, Oberm is not pressing charges against Cartop - though if the peace talks are to resume, a statement by the Brekkians demands a formal public apology by Cartop on Brekkian soil; "We believe that it is in Brekka's best interests that we withdraw from negotiations with a race of whom obviously cannot control their own aggression until such a time Ornaran Ambassador Wenrequi Cartop gives a formal public apology on Brekka for the assault on Delegate Oberm."

  3. Narala of Nimbus III joins race for the presidencyBy Vian NovaStardate 239201.18 NIMBUS III — On the heels of Ambassador Lily Ventu's presidential campaign announcement, Nimbus III Chief Administrator Narala joined the race for the presidency. Many citizens of the Galactic Peace planet Nimbus III had gathered in Paradise City for what quite possibly was the ambitious chief administrator's most staggering announcement yet. "My fellow citizens of Nimbus, these are troubling times in our galaxy. Strong leadership is needed to handle both the challenges ahead and those that will always require a watchful eye and a steady hand. We as a planet have experienced similar disarray, and look at what we have accomplished," said Narala to cheers. "I believe that I can steer the Federation as well back towards the right direction. How? With the ideals and experiences I received after a life of service here. Today, I announce my candidacy for the Office of President of the United Federation of Planets." Narala's entry stunned many political commentators, who were still reacting to Ambassador Ventu's earlier announcement. "This is shaping up to be one of the most exciting presidential elections in decades," said Professor Samit Blutan of the ShiKahr Institute. "We've yet to have a member of the Federation Council throw his or her name into the race, and that's practically unheard of." Although Terra Novan councilman Kevin Steiner has long been rumored to have his sights on the presidency, the councilman has yet to make an official announcement. Incumbent President Nan Bacco has also not yet officially announced her re-election campaign. Still, others found Narala's bid highly unusual and were skeptical of her promises. "Nimbus III isn't even a Federation member," said Erol Broam, Governor of Proxima Centauri. "Yes, she's done great things there, but the fact is she would have no experience dealing with the Federation Council. People think the presidency is all-powerful, but the truth is you have to work with the council as a partner to get things done." Yet Narala's outsider status is likely to be the crux of her campaign. She was born in 2297 to a Vulcan mother, from whom she received her own Federation citizenship, and a Romulan father. Her parents were residents on the joint Federation-Klingon-Romulan colony, and Narala has spent most of her life there. She started her career in the Paradise City Police Department, rising through the ranks, before attending law school and eventually becoming Chief Prosecutor for the colony. During this time, she was credited with leading several operations to eliminate Orion Syndicate activities and those of other major criminal organizations that had long treated Nimbus III as their own fiefdom. Having solidified her support among the population, she next focused her efforts on eliminating corruption within the Nimbus planetary government. In 2377, Narala and officers from the Nimbus III Police Force stormed the office of Chief Administrator Ventimago Weil while he was giving the annual State of the Colony address, dramatically arresting him live on air and charging him with breach of conduct. Her popularity, already high, soared overnight, and when the next chief administrator was to be selected, rallies broke out across the planet demanding that she take office. Although she claimed she had never sought the position of Chief Administrator, within her first year in office, she balanced the operating budget of the colony and announced renewed investment in education, crime reduction, and other quality of life services. By her third year in office, she had managed to halt the population loss of the colony, and she is credited with turning around what was once the poster child of failed colonies into one of the most promising hotspots in the galaxy. "I can't wait to see what she does when she gets to Paris," said Pai Xi Feng, a shopkeeper and Narala supporter who attended today's rally. "The people of the Federation only need to see what's happened here to know what prosperity is possible with the right leader, and she's the real deal." FNS Home • FNS Data Feed• FNS on FB
  4. I think for now the Cardassians and the Federation are playing nice towards each other as much as they can. Starfleet's gone so far to allow them to share a joint command of DSX (also called DS10, depending on who you talk to) in the Menthar Corridor. The Garuda has simmed a lot of contact between Starfleet and the Cardassian Union, though tensions are still sort of high, especially since the terrorist attack on the station (the original co-captain of DSX was killed during this event). I haven't seen anything on the Romulans. There may have been one or two Romulan characters I've come across, but none of them mentioned their homeworld or anything regarding a new home planet.
  5. Best parts of these movies, I have to admit, is McCoy. He doesn't get a lot of screen time, maybe, (and I was disappointed to see that Bones was also minimized in the Into Darkness novelization as well) but he always brings a smile to my face whenever he's in a scene.
  6. A British tar is a soaring soul, as free as a mountain bird. His energetic fist should be ready to resist, a dictatorial word... Sing, Worf, sing! One of my favourite moments, and that song was stuck in my head for days . . .

  13. Before I read this sentence properly, I was quite honestly looking for the full stop . . . and then realized there wasn't one . . . And then me in my silliness decided to attempt to say the entire thing without stopping . . . I failed miserably. Vaala must have a serious pair of lungs.

Have you ever had that experience where you'd sit there and absolutely *loathe* a character and dread having to read them, and then you look back on them two years later and you're like "OH MY GODS I LOVE YOU HOW DID I NOT SEE YOUR EPICNESS!!?! I AM SO SORRY FOR NOT LOVING YOU EARLIER!!!"? That's what I'm experiencing right now.

  18. Happy Good Friday!
