  1. Personally for the new year, find new ways to consistently work out at home while COVID-19 is on the loose. Read a few more books. Finish the novel I'm writing.

    On the SB-118 side, it's time for Hannibal to make Commander on his way to Captain. The road won't be easy, but he is more than willing to travel on it...

  2. It's a sticky situation, no doubt about it. Negotiation would be the first consideration. Second would be the safeguarding of Federation citizens. Intervention in a possible civil war is not something I would want to do. Defend my ship and citizens absolutely, then maintain the ability to observe the status of the factions on the ground and in space. Even offering assistance to those in distress could cause problems, but as a Starfleet captain, that aid would be provided to either side if requested on an emergency basis.

  3. Right now, you need time, and going into the nebula to make what repairs you can makes the best tactical sense. You still have working sensors, which are better than the pirates' gear, so you will see them coming long before they get there by dropping a relay just outside the nebula relaying sensor data to the ship. If you have shuttles which are or can be more heavily armed, place them on each side of the ion trail you are going to leave (and the pirates will follow) and ambush them, quick striking the pirates then retreating into the nebula, where your superior sensor capability will give you the advantage. If the shuttles can continue to keep the pirates in a running battle, whittling them down, then you come out with what ever weapons you have online to finish off whoever is left, or watch them retreat, or demand their surrender. Pirate vessels are not built for long running battles, and they have lost the advantage of surprise. Most likely at that point, they will retreat after taking such losses.

    If we're still talking about these ships and since I'm new here, I'm curious. Are we in distant future going to have another playable ship like a defiant class or maybe something similar to a Soyez or a Miranda class? Small ships are boss....just saying.

     

    👀🤫🤔

    Mirandas are playable as far as I know....Defiant Class not sure....

  5. I've got a real love for the Miranda Class. Lots of guns, multi mission capable and capable of just about anything. I like them so much when I do make Captain, I'm picking a Miranda Class as my ship...an updated one...with armor, regenerative shields and a bigger hangar bay. According to STO, Miranda production was restarted in 2406, so you never know...heh..heh..heh...maybe it started a little early...

  6. Interesting treatment of terrorism by Star Trek. The good part is the writers of ST tried to show enough of both sides ...but, as it has been said, one mans' freedom fighter is another mans' terrorist. At the end of the day, it's all about how survives to write the narrative. Neutrality is a nice thing, but it's hard to remain that way once you see the unbiased truth from both sides, especially in regards to the Bajoran/Cardassians and the Maqui. Very interesting program, and would love to see what Part Two has to say.
