Relaunch....
For those who want to continue the journey of the USS Lincoln, she will officially relaunch on a mission of exploration on Saturday, February 3rd, and... so that I can let people know what I'm officially going to do, I'm offering one of two options:

A) The Lincoln as a 23rd-century Constitution-class vessel. As appropriate for the Kirk era, this would be a light-hearted, action-heavy series, but definitely on the more cerebral end of things.

or

B) The Lincoln as a Galaxy-class vessel of the late middle 24th century (so TNG -VOY era, probably starting a few years before the Dominion War).

Either way, I'm officially bumping Will down to Captain when we relaunch. It's just the most appropriate place for him.

The reason for the change is simple: honestly, the Sovereign is a nice class of vessel. She's one of my favorite types. But truthfully, I want to honor the legacy of Kirk, Pike, and Picard with this campaign, and the great Treks of the past, and I can see no way better than this.

By the way, if anybody would like to double play, feel free, if you think you can handle it. Otherwise, please respond to this to remind me of your posts so we can get started and I can get better ads up.

I'm good to play either of those eras I have an Orion girl for both. :) So I can go with whichever you and the others prefer, but in the event of a tie would lean toward continuing with Dala in Option B.

I'm with Dala (no, not like that!) both options are acceptable, T'Rani can fit into either scenario, but I lean towards B. I just like the latter-day era of Star Trek better.

The Captain's Log is incomplete. What is our mission?

To explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before? I am sorry, but I had to make that joke. You walked right into it.

Dala's got a knack for that, but I meant our current mission. :p

I do not know how to do phonetic stuff but my idea would be that the "uf" are pronounced together followed by a distinct "n" then the "m"s. It would sound something like getting hit in the stomach. Air flows out with the strike like and "oof" sound then pain sets in with a sort of groan on the others. Any of that make sense? Also, thank you for the welcome. It is good to be here.

I'm assuming by 2IC, Dala means Second Officer of the Lincoln? I had thought T'Rani was keeping the XO's post.

In general.

Your character description is currently empty so I couldn't tell.

An Engineering Master Chief I would say its possible, depending on things, she would have seen a lot of action over her career though.

Hello, Kaper. I remember you from an old game set aboard the USS Valjean - the old rustbucket starship "where careers go to die." (I played Chief Jack Larson in that one.)

Hello to the new faces! Or new names, for those of you without faces. :p There's an index of Trek portraits on RPOL at the bottom of this thread (the game itself has died, I'm afraid).
link to a message in another game

By the way, what's the current date for this game? I guess I need to redo my backstory again.

In reply to Lt. Cmdr. Dala Simri (msg # 20):

The current date for the game is early February of 2368. However, our new first episode is set in medias res, so to speak, so I'm literally treating the Lincoln as having been launched in the wake of Wolf 359.

Re: Relaunch....
Okay. I'll shift Dala's wartime experienced to the undated Cardassian wars. Good thing we have so many wars against them. :)
