» A Few Introductions

Posted on Sat Feb 17th, 2018 @ 5:59pm by Captain Daniel Westphalen in General News

Hello everyone!

I've a few introductions to make - one late, one roughly on time.

First I'd like to welcome Scott, playing Lieutenant Oroyo, to the ship as our new chief of science! He's rolled with the punches from my unfortunate time away from the sim, and has already gotten involved in things.

Second, welcome Oliver, playing Sevel, our new doctor! In light of recent activities, we'll probably need him!

Excelsior!

Hello crew!

Thanks for putting up with the long pause while I got myself together. I experienced a few deaths in the family, and then got married... it was a very tumultuous time for me, and something had to sit for a bit.

That said, Charlie's done an amazing job keeping things going while I've been gone. But now I'm back, ready to go, and I'm ready to see us get to our next mission.

Hi, everyone!

Will, our Chief Engineer, modified his Iona skin for the Aurora. It is now the default skin you see on the main page before you log in.

If you want to change your skin preferences, you can go My Account and click on Change Display Options. You can set the skin you see for main, wiki and admin. :)

It had been twenty-four hours. For Amber, it had been a long period of stress and frustration as Engineering worked on getting the ship back on course and every other department made sure they wouldn't be the next area to fail catastrophically. She herself had run level one diagnostics…

The corner of Nastari's mouth curled up when she heard the other console say 'thank you for playing' she was curious though and so she queried "So klingons do not play practical jokes?"

Personal Log, Captain Daniel Westphalen, Stardate 94931.32.

The last six months, on assignment for Admiral Hastings while my command was being refit, reminded me of a simpler time. Adjutant work is by no means easy, but it is an environment where my decisions are not scrutinized, my ship's positive attrition…
