StarBase 118 Staff Posted January 2, 2016 Share Posted January 2, 2016 We know how often the world can be a tough place and that sometimes when â€œlife happens,â€ it can leave us feeling alone, in the dark, and helpless. During these most difficult times when life is difficult or frustrating, remember that what we have here is more than just a game. Itâ€™s â€œohana.â€ In Hawaiian that words means â€œfamily.â€ You may remember it as a central concept of the Disney movie â€œLilo & Stitch,â€ about a destructive little alien who was adopted by a family here on Earth. But Ohana is about more than just blood relatives. Itâ€™s specifically about extended, adopted, and intended family. While weâ€™re not a bunch of cute and fluffy little blue creatures from another planet, running around blowing things up â€” well, okay, maybe we blow a lot of things up! â€” we still have a togetherness that transcends acquaintance. Thereâ€™s a thread that binds us together, giving us all something in common.The vision Gene Roddenberry created inspires us to come together despite our differences, despite whatâ€™s happening in our real lives. That vision inspires us to that most consequential and human action: Gathering together to tell stories. We each have an individual story to tell, and those stories are best when told together, as part of this community.So as we begin the new year, we wanted to remind everyone in the fleet about ohana. This community, a family â€“ extended, unplanned, and intentional. Often unconventional!Sincerely,The Staff of UFOP: StarBase 118(Based on a letter by David Cody.)The post Ohana appeared first on UFOP: StarBase 118 Star Trek RPG.
