Re: Ship creation
Sounds like long serving probably takes the vote. Is there anything else we have to decide for our ship?

Re: Ship creation
Long Serving it is! Now only two things remain:

1. Name

2. What to do with 10 refits. You can increase any system by one for each refit, but a system cannot be larger than 12 and there no system can be improved more than twice.

There's also bridge stations I see them as following:

1 commanding officer positions: Graves
1 helm position-Tens
1 navigator position- supporting character
1 tactical position: S'rela
1 security oversight position- Krillek
1 sensor operations positions- Klaxton
1 communications position- D'rala

Off bridge: Nixor- engineering
            Akira- medical bay
            Tsolo- chapel

I agree that we should use the refits to make each category 10 points, that way we are pretty even and well functioning all around.

That bridge arrangement makes sense to me!

What species is Krillek, by the way? Haven’t heard about this character yet, looking forward to learning more.

Yellowknife is cool.  What was the origin/source of the name?

Re: Ship creation
Yellowknife   as its actual name.

The Dark Lady is a nickname some of us use.

There was a link provided earlier with a list of Mranda class ship names. I found it on that list and liked its registry...NCC-1666

Re: Ship creation
It's a city in the Canadain NW territories.  Perhaps the only city up there?

Re: Ship creation
Is so, ship is dark in color?

And don't forget such things as the radar-absorbant material and radar-absorbant paint used on our current military aircraft. Even as far back as the SR-71 with its RAM leading-edge panels and its "iron ball" black paint job.

Wikipedia
Yellowknife (/ˈjɛloʊnaɪf/; Dogrib: Sǫǫ̀mbak’č[8]) is the capital, only city, and largest community in the Northwest Territories, Canada. It is on the northern shore of Great Slave Lake, about 400 km (250 mi) south of the Arctic Circle, on the west side of Yellowknife Bay near the outlet of the Yellowknife River.

Yellowknife and its surrounding water bodies were named after a local Dene tribe at one time known as the "Copper Indians" or "Yellowknife Indians", today incorporated as the Yellowknives Dene First Nation, who traded tools made from copper deposits near the Arctic Coast.

Re: Ship creation
So, I guess majority want USS Yellowknife as the name and I am calling it. There were two suggestion to raise all of our systems to 10 with refits. Are we all down with it, or someone has a different idea?

Ok, so ship is decided. I will be putting all ship details in a separate thread to simplify things.
