The Black Fleet Report - August 2020

USS Europa

Commanding Officer: No report submitted


Executive Officer: Janice B.

Crew Posting Level: 8
Senior Staff Posting Level: 6
Overall Ship Health: 7

Ship Status: A little of a slow down with the ship’s posts during this month, but we’re still holding strong. I’m still very proud of the crew and enjoy reading their various stories.

Main Sim- As the crew discusses their next course of action during their data collection, there’s a split between establishing contact or continuing to observe. Things become urgent when a malfunction happens and the test ship drifts off course. It floats into a radiation heavy zone threatening the crew inside. All differences of opinions set aside, the Europa crew springs into action and goes into yellow alert. Now it is a race to save the lives of the crew.

Spotlight: This time, I’m spotlighting the Side Sim: Ancient(?) technology between Linds and L Lay. The short and sweet of the side sim is this: Engineer Greiss appears to have made a contract with an unsavory Bolian character, and now has been sneaking around collecting parts for an old human technology relic. Naturally, all that sneaking wouldn’t go unnoticed by someone, and Science officer Marshall was the cowboy to detect it. I love the character’s opposing personality with Griess’ nervous and worried nature complimented by Marshall’s good-hearted and cowboy attitude. It makes for a very good read as I find myself engaged with these two.

Vacancies: Currently, all roles are filled. If you have questions or want to try an appropriate swing-role, please contact JoeP or me (fallenreaper) on discord or with an email.

Sim Overview: Progress has been made. Primitive warp ships have been seen. Jinxes have been uttered which have thrown wrenches in the works. Can the Europa rescue the pilot in time before they become fried by binary sun radiation? How will the Europa pull it off without becoming crispy themselves? It will be interesting to find out.

AFComm’s Comments: CO was not excused from Ship Report.
I’m eager to see what happens with the Main and the direction it goes


USS Genesis

Sim Overview: The Genesis discovers a relatively new pulsar and nebula. Within it there seems to be a life form using the energy from the pulsar as nourishment. The creature has broken free from its feeding and has headed out of the nebula into uncharted space. It was accelerating, reaching light speed. The Genesis are pursuing it, trying to study this newly discovered creature.

Spotlight:


FComm’s Comments: Besides a few AWOLs that caught my eye, the Genesis is smooth sailing!


USS Merrimack

Commanding Officer: David Fergusson

Crew Posting Level: 10
Senior Staff Posting Level: 8
Overall Ship Health: 9

Ship Status: The Merrimack has begun a new Sim in which it has been sent to make First Contact with what is thought to be a newly Warp Capable species, not previously known. All we have are garbled radio messages and a weak Warp 1 signature. We have held a mission briefing to discuss the mission objectives and guidelines. We have been joined by three new crew members and the Merrimack now has the strongest crew level I can remember. Posting rates are good with only a few absences to note.

Spotlight: There has been some great conversational volleys between our new crew Charles Stevens and Nicole Cline.

Vacancies: Contact the Captain directly for custom character positions and swing officers. All DH positions are currently filled and most already have a junior officer but will consider any suggestion. Open to members for second characters only and I wish the keep the ship 80% human in respect of this time period.

Sim Overview: The Merrimack steams full speed ahead if you ask me, the sim is picking up with the CO/XO briefing the senior staff on their task to track down some old signals and warp pulses on a possible new first contact mission.

Spotlight:


AFComm’s Comments: Huge props to the Merry for keeping up-to-date with posts. David and David should be commended for this feat. I’m eagerly looking forward to seeing how first contact goes

Oed V

Commanding Officer: Russell Watt

Crew Posting Level: 7
Senior Staff Posting Level: 4
Overall Ship Health: 5

Ship Status: We’re still orbiting Oed.

Two new PRSims

Tony’s pilot character is doing a flight around the Oed and nearby systems and has invited all who wants to join him to climb aboard his vessel. Join him on the ‘Grand Tour.’

An adolescent wants to be ‘dehumanified’ so he can become fully betazoid and ‘read the mind of the smartest kid in his class so he can pass exams’ and ‘see what the cute girl in class likes so he can impress her’, yes it is the “Trouble with Karlos”, not an episode of USS Felisa Dales NCC 90210.

Spotlight: Tony Findora keeps on going, as does Sidney Parker.

Actually everyone on the planet needs to be spotlighted

Except the Governor. He needs a swift kick.

Vacancies: Anyone interested in working the soil? Our second dome has huge tracks of land waiting for farmers of all kinds and species.

Sit and shoot the breeze for a while and shake your fist at those darned kids to get off your lawn.

Or run a farm stay.

Plenty of other opportunities as well, tribble rustling, targ breeding, cockroach milking (a real thing: https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/cockroach-milk-nutrition.)


Executive Officer: Sidney Parker

Crew Posting Level: 6
Senior Staff Posting Level: 6
Overall Ship Health: 6

Ship Status: I’m optimistic we can maintain a 6 rating across the board but there has been a dip in posting lately. We gained some people but its touch and go still on Oed if we are trending steady or down.

Spotlight: Tony Findora playing several characters. Hjor for the same. Great dedication.

Vacancies:


Gamemaster: No report submitted


AFComm’s Comments: I would like to see more senior officials in the Colony post more often.

OED will need a few more people to fill it’s ranks.


USS Olympic

Commanding Officer: No report submitted


Executive Officer: No report submitted


Gamemaster: No report submitted


USS Wolverine

Commanding Officer: Terry Sullivan

Crew Posting Level: 7
Senior Staff Posting Level: 7
Overall Ship Health: 7

Ship Status: Things have slowed just a little bit lately and I’m just as guilty as anybody else on the ship whose posting has been a bit sporadic recently. My reasoning is that it’s time to go back to school and this year I have twice as many special ed. students on my caseload and dealing strictly with middle school students this year. These first few weeks of school I have been crazy busy, but hopefully things will start to settle into a rhythm.

Sim-wise, the ships sensors are in the process of being modified so that we can locate the artifacts we are supposed to collect. An away team has gone back to Risa to see if there are any more artifacts planet side, as well as try to track down any answers on who is trying to kill Capt. Boudreaux. It is definitely appearing that there is a reason to collect these artifacts and get them out of circulation, as Ensign Thienna is currently finding out how dangerous they can be.

Spotlight: I have to give a clap on the shoulder to our newest recruit, Charles Stevens. He comes to as Ens. Morning Bright, a Gnalish (kind of a dino-man) science JO.

I will admit, I was quite hesitant and not 100% behind Charles bringing this character aboard, but have been pleasantly surprised with his potrayal of this species. Charles has given very descriptive descriptions of Morning Bright’s personality, actions, and reactions to events on the ship. I’m glad you were able to prove me wrong Charles. Nice job!!

Vacancies: We currently have all DH positions filled and at least one JO in science, engineering, and security, but I would like to get at least one medical JO to help staff the Wolverine’s small sickbay.

Gamemaster: Jason Lee

Senior Staff Posting Level: 7
Overall Ship Health: 7

Sim Overview: The crew has been trying to figure out the universe of Warehouse 13 that they’ve encountered. Weird things are going on, and they are have barely scratched the surface.

Spotlight:


AFComm’s Comments: XO was excused
Very impressed by the Warehouse 13 sim.
Things seem to be moving along. I’m excited about what the crew will find.


FComm Comments Overall: While not affecting the flow of each sim, every ship has at least 1 AWOL that they should look into. However, I’m really intrigued by the current sims in place, and I can’t wait to read over them once I catch up from my LOA.
