USS Europa

Commanding Officer: Joe P

How is your ship looking overall? We’re limping along; slower than last month, but we are still moving. We managed to do more than the minimum this month despite the fact that we have at least one person who spent most of the month on LOA. The sim is reaching a point where we should be able to drive it to a resolution sometime in the next two months, or at least I think it is. When the sim is over we’re going to have some people change roles and characters and that’ll hopefully bring us a breath of fresh air.

What was your favorite moment/post on the ship this month (include a link if possible!)? I don’t know if I have a single favorite moment. I am liking the thread between James Sinclair and Amber DeSadier; it’s just the standard boarding psych eval but I feel like James’ portrayal of Doctor Vock is very grounded in Vulcan stoicism, though there’s a hint (the “very slightest hint”) of some sort of mischief behind it.

Name one thing you want to improve on the ship for next month.I think it’s been pretty hard for newer members of the crew to join the sim in a natural way with where we are in it, so I would like to go out of my way to make sure that we have some kind of side sim threads for them to play in with everybody else at once in something a little more structured and directed than a Lounge thread. We have a lot of individual side sims going on, which is good, but I think we could benefit from something with a small plot that would include everybody doing their regular jobs.


Executive Officer: Janice B.

How are the DHs doing? Are they all active and participating, both in the main sim and in any side sims?Yes, the DHs are engaged with the Main Sim and a smaller Side Sims. Currently for the Main Sim a communication thread has been made to progress communication between the Ship and Away crew using a crude morse code. Off the top of my head, I can list at least three currently in progress. One with the CNS and CMO, CoS and CMO, and a social one in the lounge area of the ship.

How are the JOs doing? Are the all active and participating, both in the main sim and in any side sims?All the active JOs have been participating in the main and at least one side.

Who is the shining star this month? I want to nominate: James Sinclair. In the last few months, he’s had some ups and downs with real life. Despite this, he still puts in the effort and I want to recognize that and applaud him for it. I know when life hits us harder than expected, it’s tough to get back up. Some times we don’t want to and I’m happy to see him push through with the best of his ability. Congrats James.

AFComm’s Comments: I’m so happy to see that Europa is back. Great job Europa! Keep up the good postings.

GM is Excused


USS Genesis

Commanding Officer: Luke Hung

How is your ship looking overall? The ship has had a slight upturn in posting and quality. There is a number of side sims going on and we’ve added some new players who always inject energy. The main sim seems to dragging a little as we have found the ship into a standoff with an heretofore unknow alien race. Since they don’t have the firepower to mess with a Star-Fleet ship and well… star-fleet aren’t the invade and subjugate sort of people were a little stuck.

XO and GM are excused

USS Merrimack

Commanding Officer: David Fergusson

How is your ship looking overall? The Merrimack continues to remain healthy. Merrimack won the Black Fleet Shining Star ship award for the month of April. Most members are participating regularly this month within posting limits. This month there have been some LOAs and AWOLs which I will deal with. There are 2 active main Sim threads and 1 active self-Sim threads. The main Sim has reached the middle of the story. The Captain and CE are in discussion with the Habitat leader, Dol, while the rest of the landing party are taking a tour with his second-in-command, Sal. Back on the ship, we are still baby-sitting the cuckoo child, Franz.

What was your favorite moment/post on the ship this month (include a link if possible!)? I’m enjoying the interactions during the tour of the Habitat which have given an opportunity for some character development for all involved. The latest post in that thread can be found here:

Name one thing you want to improve on the ship for next month.I would like to build up crew numbers. Melissa is leaving us, so I will be looking for a new CE. Contact the Captain directly about vacancies on the USS Merrimack. I will reply as soon as possible, possibly taking up references first, if necessary. The ship is 90% Human, although TOS Movie-era aliens are allowed. You can play a Junior Officer, or your pick of any custom character you can think of - Nurse, Yeoman, Navigator, Helm, Captain’s Chef, Ship’s Historian, Ship’s Physicist, and Transporter Chief.


Executive Officer: No report submitted


Gamemaster: Robert Archer

Summarize the sim plot so far as if you were providing it to a new member joining the ship: The Merrimack overall has had a good time this past month, we’ve finally gotten the CO and CE to chat up Dol and did a Q/A with him on things, plus are now moving on to get a tour of the habitat’s control centers. Elsewhere the rest of the diplomatic party are getting a tour of the habitat’s cultural centers and just arrived near the collective schooling yards.

Who was the biggest contributor this month to driving the sim forward?


AFComm’s Comments: It’s regrettable when any player leaves a ship. A new DH slot is open for the club. Contact David Fergusson if interested. The Merry will definitely keep you busy.
