Eerie
Hello all! The Rock man comes. Congrads on the riase
@Renos
Also, Hi Eerie
How are you?
Ayiana_Sevo
hopefully. the town im in right now sucks
Eerie
good.
Traenor
Hey skyfire !
Ayiana_Sevo
went to high school here over a decade ago, but its really gone downhill since then
@Renos
sorry to hear that
Ayiana_Sevo
lots of homeless drug addicts up here now. :\
@Renos
Not so good.... So welcome again to another Darwin/Victory ship chat.
I have some good news to share with everyone
Eerie
what do you have for us? I know how much you like secrets :)
@Renos
Promotions for the Darwin - which just got simmed today include Mister Jellico to Chief Petty Officer, Valdivia to Lt JG and Traenor to Lt!
I love secrets xD
So congratulations to everyone for their promotions. Again. There can never be too many gratzes...
KaelThomas
Congrats!!!!
Eerie
Congrads! Good to see some old Victory staff moving up
Traenor
Aww, thanks!
@Renos
Both the Victory and Darwin crews got awarded the Prometheus ribbon too, which is pretty cool
Traenor
The more shinies, the merrier!
@Renos
And the FO of the Darwin has changed with Kael Thomas becoing the Darwin's FO - again
It's destiny
Congrats KaelThomas
Eerie
Congrads to an old Vigilantee!
KaelThomas
:-D
skyfire
Ops just lost another shuttlepod.
@Renos
shame
Traenor
Yay KaelThomas !
@Renos
I want to send out a very special thank you to Ayiana_Sevo for stepping up to help us with these joint chats every month!
Thanks so much!
We really appreciate it!
* Ayiana_Sevo waves.
@Renos
Congrats to Jellico, for getting a Top Sim nomination for “An Update” & Valdivia with “Old Hobby” & Lt Traenor with “Fly on the wall.” Renos & Iy with Manius and N’rila in “Raising the stakes” and for the Victory Sevo with PO2 Xanti Ilas Ysa Liss in “A Cordial Visit”
Traenor
Thanks, Ayiana!
skyfire
:-)
@Renos
We've had quite a few top sim nominations so far this month
I want to encourage everyone who reads a good sim and likes it to nominate it to the competition
Traenor
We've had some awesome posts this month!
@Renos
The authors will love you and give you cookies for life :P
KaelThomas
5 out of 20 for the last 3 rounds :)
skyfire
Mmmm...cookies for life.
@Renos
The Darwin and Victory are pretty blessed with awesome writers
Ayiana_Sevo
sadly, i seem to see little from the victory being nominated. :(
* Traenor has cookie monster song stuck in his head now. Thanks.
@Renos
You could nominate some?
Eerie
yes we have some talent.:)
@Renos
We all have the power to put them forward
Ayiana_Sevo
i nominated my own. :P
@Renos
I was just about to say that
Self nomination is perfectly awesome. I've done that before and why not. Its a great way to share those sims you're particularly proud of with the rst of the fleet
Ayiana_Sevo
its just that ive judged 4 rounds so far, and only saw 1 from victory. :(
@Renos
Nominate some then
:D
Eerie
a good idea
Traenor
Start bugging your colleagues. With the Writing Contest done, it's the best way to showcase our ships' talent with the rest of the fleet.
Ayiana_Sevo
i have :P gratuitous emails to nugra. heh.
@Renos
Yeah. Victory sims can only win if victory writers get pumped enough about each others work to put stuff forward
Its the best kudos you can give
Same for Darwin and every other ship :)
Ayiana_Sevo
i asked this last time, but i was wondering if there should be another place to showcase sims besides the contest. for example i wrote a 5-part sim when ayiana was vacationing on earth, but it was too long. or other story arcs. some sort of showcase forum or something
@Renos
An extra section in the In Character section would seem to fit. Though I have to disagree that a 5 part sim is too long
I won the competition one year with a ten part sim
Ayiana_Sevo
...
well then
@Renos
The competition isn't all about the sinning anyway
Ayiana_Sevo
too bad its been over a month
@Renos
It is the ultimate place to showcase your own and others work
Ayiana_Sevo
hence why i nominated my slightly-shorter pahkwa-thanh's sim
Eerie
I have been listening to a lot of Star Trek podcasts. I wanted to share the address it is quite good.
http://missionlogpodcast.com/
@Renos
Even just having a sim you're proud of enough to nominate, or liking another's post enough to nominate it is a big thing.
We can't complain our ships aren't getting nominations if we don't put any in ourselves. It's not up to *someone else* It's up to all of us. Jyst sayin' :D haha
Traenor
Looks interesting, Eerie . I'll be checking that out later. ;)
@Renos
Who here is looking forward to/taking part in the Deep Space 6 shuttle race btw?
* Traenor hand up wildly in the air
@Renos
Eerie always has the best podcasts to listen to
I don't know how Renos will get involved yet and maybe ne will end up just being a spectator (we need those too after all haha)
Manius will be competing though
KaelThomas
Someone better invite me onto a team, or else!
Eerie
lol they keep me running. I nearly tripped and fell , laughing and listening to the Star Trek V podcast it was so funny
@Renos
I hate to see what happens if he loses (which is more likely than not)
KaelThomas
Else I'll just have to create another team and win
@Renos
Thomas we're still looking for people for the joint Victory/Darwin team, what about joining that?
Traenor
Oh, btw, I tried to fill in the race team form yesterday, and it was tagged as read only for me...
KaelThomas
I like it
@Renos
Ah. Ok. I wondered why no one was updating it!
I'll check the permissions later
@Renos
What about you Sevo?
Eerie?
Into the race or not so much?
Eerie
Eerie isn't a good pilot. LOL
Ayiana_Sevo
Eh....not sure. Ayiana isnt a good pilot.
KaelThomas
lol
Ayiana_Sevo
plus im sure there is a weight limit EERIE
KaelThomas
practice makes perfect!
Traenor
Haha! Ballast!
@Renos
LOL!!!!
Eerie
he broke a seat in a shuttle once, during the academy
Ayiana_Sevo
i can believe it
@Renos
Each team can have 3 - a pilot is a must
Not all of the team will be/have to be in the shuttle when it races anyway
Ayiana_Sevo
but your problems dont come close to Xanti, my pahkwa-thanh. he can't even use humanoid chairs! and dont get him started on the jeffries tubes
skyfire
Exploding shuttlecraft, demon-possessed ambassadors, and a full-on riot.
@Renos
So slots two and three can be an engineer or scientist
Design a shuttle
Traenor and Valdivia, two scientists are designing and creating their own shuttle
Traenor
But not an exploding shuttle ;)
@Renos
The third slot can be used in whatever way the team wants - so getting the scoop on the other teams, negotiating for parts... whatever
So yeah. Have a think of some unique ways you might get involved, if you want. :D (Or PNPCs)
Traenor
Oooh! An industrial espionage agent!
@Renos
You *could* try sabotage other team's ships
KaelThomas
You know what happens when you get caught Traenor
@Renos
(Just discuss it with them OOC first!) xD
Traenor
They'll send Eerie to sit on me?
@Renos
OMG if someone wrecked Manius's ship with the stakes he has for failure.... whooo boy...
Eerie
crushing prospect.
@Renos
LOL Traenor
KaelThomas
^
Traenor
Haha!
@Renos
harsh
So. The Darwin is ALMOST ready to head out to mission two
KaelThomas
Bit excited
@Renos
We are going to an O class - water world where a repitilian species called the Asvaii dwell
I am excited for this
KaelThomas
I'm an Asav Veteran!
@Renos
Me as well obviously being as I created them for my Commander's exam, then reused them for the Captains exam!
Traenor
I can't wait to see Kael's reaction IC when this is announced...
@Renos
Now we're going to answer a few more of those pesky unanswered questions
Omg.... yeah
He has had some rough experiences with that
Manius won't be so happy when he's told either
Boy his life IS harsh times
KaelThomas
That will be made all the better
Eerie
Eerie and water not a good combo
KaelThomas
when all my FO presents arrive!
@Renos
Eerie/Sevo tell us about what's happening with you on the Vicotry and what you're enjoying
Obviously I'm there
Ayiana_Sevo
yea
@Renos
I'm kinda a double simming agent
Ayiana_Sevo
about the eerie.sevo thing...
ayiana sorta punched a romulan, then the talk from eerie
@Renos
LOL FO presents... KT deserves them for sure
That was a great JP! Mister immovable actually bent a little
Eerie
ah, Eerie called Sevo out and had him come to the XO office for a chat, your turn!
Traenor
Any ramifications IC for the punch?
Eerie
go ahead Sevo
Ayiana_Sevo
a blemish on her record. if she is good, he will remove it in a year
http://wiki.starbase118.net/wiki/images/9/95/SoR_2.jpg
http://wiki.starbase118.net/wiki/images/5/5b/SoR_3.jpg
Eerie
if she is bad, he will make it a part of her jacket
@Renos
Oh yeah I can't remember if I said before - excellent pics!
Eerie
very nice!!!
Eerie actually was tempted, but ....
Traenor
Your skill with your renders is top class!
Ayiana_Sevo
:D
you should see the back forty i did
Eerie
hopefully repairs to Victory will be complete for next miss
KaelThomas
refit looks very flash!
Ayiana_Sevo
i wonder if we could create a new wiki template for a starfleet record? or would that be a bit too in-depth?
@Renos
No such thing as too in-depth
If there's a template people aren't obliged to use it but I bet a fair few people would be very happy to have such a thing
Eerie
agreed you can really do your wiki page look sharpe
Traenor
Our wiki's beauty and completeness is a BIG draw. Any enhancements are only a plus.
@Renos
I agree.
Traenor's mission archives on the Darwin are among the very finest I've ever seen
Ayiana_Sevo
im trying to work on ayiana's academy transcript, but there are not enough classes listed in the academy library for what i want. Quantum Mechanics and Subspace Mechanics
* Ayiana_Sevo checks out Traenor.
@Renos
Make some classes up
* Traenor blushes
Eerie
electives
@Renos
You're not obliged to choose only from that list. It's just there as a starting point mainly
Ayiana_Sevo
Subspace
Eerie
how to punch a Romulan PR101
@Renos
LOL
KaelThomas
haha
Ayiana_Sevo
Subspace Mechanics is only one course under engineering, but i would think it would be on par with physics and Quantum mechanics. with multiple classes
lol
@Renos
That one is in the security courses
Traenor
Hand-To-Hand Whupping 101
@Renos
Tarna must have been in for effective stabbing 101
Eerie
Romance RO101
Ayiana_Sevo
well im thinking ayiana is going to start taking weapons and melee training under eerie and/or sharpe or someone
@Renos
Sounds good! :D
Ayiana_Sevo
because she feels totally responsible for loosing tarna and rosek in the first place
@Renos
I haven't decided whether Tarna will survive the mission yet
Ayiana_Sevo
...
Eerie
what?
@Renos
Maybe he will but end up a total fruit basket
Anything could happen
Ayiana_Sevo
...
@Renos
Pretty sure no one will miss him anyway
Ayiana_Sevo
...
Eerie
are you kidding. After those simms....
he has made his "mark"
Ayiana_Sevo
im sure rosek would have something to say about that
ayiana thought his starfleet bio pic was cute
@Renos
Yeah Rosek will be there at his miltary funeral, shedding a single tear as his coffin is blasted into a sun
^ dawww
Ayiana_Sevo
...
@Renos
If only he knew
Eerie
DeBarres will nurse Renos back to health
Ayiana_Sevo
make another Genesis Planet
@Renos
heh? Eerie?
Ayiana_Sevo
i can in no way see myself killing off Ayiana. i love her too much.
@Renos
But - you know it certainly seems that everyone is having great times IC
Favourite moments so far in April?
Eerie
I mean Tarna! ::confused::
Ayiana_Sevo
punching a romulan in the face
hands down
@Renos
I killed Blackwood and I'd had her over a year
Nice
Thomas? Traenor? Fav moments?
Eerie
I remember that well.
Ayiana_Sevo
see, Ayiana transcends franchises. i use her for all my gaming and stories
she is my alter ego
Traenor
Can't say I will always play Traenor as primary, but I'd never kill him off. Too fond of him.
@Renos
^ Ah :D
Ayiana_Sevo
a little weird that a female is my alter ego but we wont go there...
@Renos
I love Traenor - what a great character
Eerie
Eerie too. Might get send back to Brikar Prime but would always be available
@Renos
Heh. Don't worry about it! xD
Traenor
Hmm.. favorite moment...
Prob Jorey's unhealthy phobia of pizza...
Ayiana_Sevo
...blasphemy
pizza is a gift from the universe
KaelThomas
lol
@Renos
It was a gift that Jorey feared would be spread all over the Darwin's falls and door frames apparently
Traenor
IC, Renos and Traenor had a trip to Traenor's fav holodeck program. I really enjoyed the character development that happened in that JP.
@Renos
That was the only character development I really managed to squeeze in due to CO like duties in the end
xD
Traenor
Well, when we go to Waterworld, we can see Renos have character development when ne is on the beach in nir Borat swimsuit...
@Renos
Omg what a vision....
Traenor
Haha, sorry everyone for the image that will never go away.
Ayiana_Sevo
Nugra in a bathing suit.
KaelThomas
oh der
Ayiana_Sevo
you're welcome
KaelThomas
*dear
@Renos
It won't but scarier still I might well inflict it on everyone else so they can remember it for life too
Eerie
well Eerie's race don't swim. They sink
@Renos
He needs an anti-grav sled for a float
Traenor
That would be problematic... do Brikars breath oxygen?
Eerie
they do
Traenor
Damn. There goes my plan to jettison Eerie during the shuttle race 'a la' green turtle shell...
Eerie
Teenage mutuant Brikar turtle
Traenor
Haha! That's awesome!
@Renos
Love it
xD
KaelThomas
lol
Eerie
time to feed the dogs all need to run
@Renos
Thanks for joining us Eerie
It's about time to call it anyway!
Eerie

Traenor
Take it easy, Eerie .
@Renos

Eerie
