Session Start: Fri Jul 26 20:23:46 2013 0200 [20:23] Rezal: So, it looks like it's a rare occasion when everyone is online ish. Meeting? [20:23] Robert: sure [20:23] Cameron: I haz plot rewritten [20:24] Rezal: lets see then [20:24] Stephi: Well, i can't make it [20:24] Robert: No offence Cameron,but a plot is just a plot. You kinda did the sim part for us. [20:24] Robert: You just write down general plot lines,the characters do their parts [20:25] Cameron: I wrote what happens [20:25] Stephi: I'm going to go out to store and buy RE6 [20:25] Robert: sim leader puts in actions to continue the plot alone and make sure no one is off track too far [20:25] Stephi: or whatever game i find [20:25] Cameron: You guys fill in the convos etc [20:25] Rezal: Stephi - that's a mistake, the RE games suck [20:25] Stephi: THEY DO NOT! [20:25] Rezal: Sorry, Sorry, MY opinion...it's valid [20:26] Rezal: But yes, it's the over all premise we need, and an idea of where it's going to go [20:26] Robert: I think we're a bi off topic... [20:26] Rezal: keeping in mind that the players will likely screw the over arching plot, and cause us to shift weekly [20:26] Rezal: but well [20:26] Rezal: that keeps us on our toes [20:27] Cameron: I needed to write that out, because I need to know how things are gonna go, If people get confusecd they'll have a way to check [20:28] Brandi Cline: The way Cameron has it set up is fine. This is why we have a captain and what not. To try to keep the story on course. However somethings may be omitted due to what the crew does. [20:28] Robert: I'm noticing some folks working solo... or saying they prefe to work solo... we need to be a team... otherwise this will fail before we get our frst sim out [20:28] Cameron: I work best late, at ungodly hours. [20:28] Robert: That's okay,but at least bounce ideas off your assistants. [20:29] Rezal: well, as most of us are in the US, this isn't too much of an issue [20:29] Robert: Rezal and myself do it a lot over skype, so far, things are progressing [20:29] Rezal: ungodly for you is normal hours here [20:29] Cameron: oh [20:29] Rezal: in two weeks I'll be back in the UK, so it'll change for me [20:29] Rezal: but I can be kept up to dat otherwise, you do need to work with T'Pel and Stephi closely [20:30] Brandi Cline: However I am thinking this would also be good to mesh with the idea Stephi had. [20:30] Robert: and on forums, to show the work. Even if you just copy/paste skype conversations [20:30] Brandi Cline: A way for the Romulans to try and steal the new tech. [20:30] Cameron: Um [20:30] Cameron: The Vulcans stole it [20:30] Rezal: ok, so romulans sgtealing or Vulcans [20:30] Rezal: as I've had mixed signals there [20:30] Cameron: I rewrite the plot [20:30] Robert: Vulcans stole the idea from Romulans, could lead to war. That's the general plot [20:31] Cameron: Um [20:31] Cameron: 'Before he enters a Romulan Squad beams in and a Deridex decloaks in orbit, The Romulan Commander explains that this Technology was originally designed to be a weapon but was uncontrollable but the Vulcans took it and converted it too there so called 'Shadow Drive'.' [20:31] Darth Jadus: I forgot my Skype was on ** [20:31] Cameron: '*Main Lab* Ambassador Solok and the Captain are escorted to the seating area to watch a demonstration of the new 'Shadow Drive' which was designed to create a small Field around A ship which would look like a shadow, It would apparently be 30% Faster than Warp 9.9.
*Upon Entering the Captain recieves a call from the ship explaining that other Ships warp fields are being destabilized by emissions from this area*
Before he enters a Romulan Squad beams in and a Deridex decloaks in orbit, The Romulan Commander explains that this Technology was originally designed to be a weapon but was uncontrollable but the Vulcans took it and converted it too there so called 'Shadow Drive'.' [20:31] Brandi Cline: Ok...so the Romulans haven't finished their prototype...so they try to steal the Vulcans to save time. [20:31] Robert: no..... [20:31] Robert: The Vulcans stole the technology from the Romulans. [20:32] Cameron: OKAY [20:32] Rezal: google hangouts? [20:32] Cameron: Read what I posted and you'll see how I've done it [20:32] Robert: idk why this has gotten backwards [20:32] Rezal: might be easier to bandy ideas? [20:32] Brandi Cline: I just do not understand how the Vulcans would be so back handed as to actively steal the tech from the Romulans without trying to negociate with them first. [20:32] Cameron: Brandi [20:32] Robert: google hangout works, let me put my other kid down for nap [20:33] Cameron: Pretend the Vulcans arent normal [20:33] Brandi Cline: If someone else stole it and took it to them, different story. [20:33] Cameron: This is going to end with me rewriting the plot....again? [20:33] Brandi Cline: Also...this is in response to a Borg threat, correct? Why not try to ally with the Romulans against a common enemy like during the Dominion war? [20:34] Cameron: Incorrect [20:34] Robert: One plot at a time [20:34] Cameron: I heard nothing about borg] [20:34] Brandi Cline: Just tweeks, Cameron. Not a re write. [20:34] Rezal: The Vulcans could have a team of unorthodox vulcans that are employed to get thigns done when it goes against the normal leaders logic. It's a logical solution to being back handed. they don't need to know where things come from, reasonable deniablity, and it gets what they need when they cant otherwise get it [20:34] Rezal: like MI6 for britain.. [20:34] Soka: oops, I was afk, got some stuff to read up on I guess [20:34] Cameron: VT6? [20:34] Robert: wtf is T6? [20:34] Brandi Cline: Or section 31? [20:34] Robert: *VT6 [20:34] Cameron: Vulcan Team 6. [20:34] Brandi Cline: [20:34] Cameron: S31 is federation [20:35] Cameron: This is COMPLETLY Vulcan. [20:35] Brandi Cline: Let me come up with another name for it please. [20:35] Robert: (Link: (edited out, as no longer valid anyway) [20:35] Cameron: Thats why a Starfleet Admiral is going to watch a demonstration [20:35] Brandi Cline: Mhm...you do not think Section 31 doesn't have agents on Vulcan? [20:35] Cameron: I really cant hangout atm. [20:35] Rezal: The Blind Ones? blind to normal reason, as their logic is so totally out of whack? [20:36] Brandi Cline: That could be a noticable flaw. Which would get them hospitalized for help. I would think anyway [20:36] Cameron: Green Blooded Hodgoblins. [20:36] Brandi Cline: [20:37] Cameron: Anyway, [20:37] Cameron: I gtg. [20:37] Rezal: ok dude [20:37] Cameron: T'Pel can rewrite the plot till I get back in a week [20:38] Cameron: I've sent her a copy to do so. [20:38] Robert: okay dude,enjoy your vacation [20:38] Cameron: Thanks! I will! [20:42] Soka: ok, I've read up on it [20:42] Rezal: would you be interested in joining the hangout? [20:42] Soka: sorry, last time I tried that it bluescreened me [20:42] Rezal: no worries [20:43] Robert: I got the hangout beside the skype, so it's all good. I'm sure Rezal is doing the same. ** [20:43] Brandi Cline: Same here [20:44] Rezal: yup [20:44] Brandi Cline: How long are these Live Sims going to be scheduled? [20:45] Robert: Probably 1hr max, maybe only 30mins to start [20:45] Rezal: 30 mins is nothing for a live sim [20:45] Rezal: I'd say 2 hours min. [20:46] Brandi Cline: 30 would go by fast. [20:46] Rezal: Typically they were 2-3hrs back in the day, as far as I recall [20:46] Soka: but back then people who didn't like them could evade to other chatrooms too [20:47] Brandi Cline: We can plan for an hour and see how it goes. Because what we don't finish, we can continue on the next time or on the forums. [20:47] Rezal: indeed
[00:40] Rezal: For the record, everything said in this chat is Simming Internal only [00:41] Soka: yub yub boss [02:02] Stephi:

[21:40] Rezal: Ok, I can live with it like that. Atkins, you'll need to co-ordinate with Stephi how you want to proceed with running the first Sim and feed back your ideas through me and Numbahs [21:40] Atkins: Will do. [21:40] Robert: Yes. We like to be informed. [21:40] Soka: and another update, this time the recruitment-text on top [21:40] Robert: I forgot I had Skype on phone. [21:40] Atkins: Don't have her contact info though... [21:41] Atkins: I'll look it up on the doss. [21:41] Robert: Yeppers [21:41] Soka: doss linked on the roster [21:43] Atkins: ... [21:43] Robert: Also, try to show work on forums. [21:43] Robert: So rezal and I know work is being done. [21:44] Soka: Tanya just asks what time we want to hold the first simm on [21:44] Rezal: i don't think the email in her dossier works [21:44] Robert: Not totally sure on time [21:44] Rezal: but i just added her to the call [21:46] Rezal: stepi, Atkins is your new ADL [21:46] Stephi: Woo [21:47] Rezal: add each other to skype if you don't mind [21:47] Rezal: you'll need to work together on planning how the Sim is going to progress, using the plot cam and T'pel provide [21:48] Stephi: Well ok [21:48] Brandi Cline: I am sure we can also provide suggestions. [21:48] Atkins: Added you Steph. [21:48] Rezal: sure, I have no issues you guys working together [21:49] Rezal: A "One Team" Spirit and all that [21:49] Rezal: we work together to make things work, or it all falls to pieces [21:49] Rezal: T'Pel - you're good with Vulcan, can you give me a good name for the Vulcan test ship? [21:50] Stephi: Sounds like a plan [21:52] Brandi Cline: Give me a sec [21:52] Rezal: ok [21:54] Brandi Cline: Nisa? [21:54] Rezal: Sounds good, what's it mean? [21:54] Brandi Cline: Which literally means test in Vulcan. [21:54] Rezal: haha, that works [21:55] Stephi: Yeeap [21:55] Rezal: do Vulcan ships have Prefixes? [21:56] Brandi Cline: Prefixes? [21:56] Soka: like ncc [21:57] Brandi Cline: Not sure actually [21:57] Rezal: like uss? [21:58] Atkins: I think it is just Vulcan ship Miss [21:58] Atkins: I don't believe they use ncc or USS that is a human thing [21:58] Atkins: Nisa [21:58] Stephi: USS nisa [21:58] Brandi Cline: The Vulcan ship Nisa. Unless it is for Starfleet. [21:59] Atkins: Yeah... [21:59] Soka: I looked up on Memory Alpha [21:59] Soka: seems like this one at least has no prefix [21:59] Soka: (Link: en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/D'Kyr_type)http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/D'Kyr_type [22:00] Soka: oh wait it's a class [22:00] Soka: (Link: en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Seleya)http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Seleya [22:01] Soka: but no doesn't seem so [22:01] Rezal: cool, thanks [22:02] Brandi Cline: Vulcans would keep it simple and to the point. [22:02] Soka: It's a miracle they name their ships at all? [22:02] Stephi: Yes [22:03] Brandi Cline: [22:03] Rezal: Ok, first draft of the Update I plan to post fo the Pulsar, opinions:
Season 1: Episode 1 - Shadows in the Light
Starfleet has received word that their allies have developed a new faster than warp drive called the "Shadow Drive", reportedly more stable than Trans-Warp, though not quite as fast.
Invited to witness the test flight of the Vulcan Science Ship "Nisa", the Federation deploy The U.S.S. Pulsar, an Ascension Class starship, and it's leading military research vessel, to over see the test flight, and to provide additional protection to our allies during this exciting time.
Your mission, as the Crew of the U.S.S. Pulsar is to ensure this milestone in technological advances is carried smoothly, and to gather as much data on the first flight as you can.
So Join us, on Sunday 25th August for the Anniversary Celebratory return of the Simming Team in this exciting new adventure, of which is going to be the first episode in this new Series of Role Play fun!
We are taking applications for the Captain and XO positions, if you are interested please click here to let us know, and we'll be in touch.
Also, if you would like enquire about any other role, let us know Here, though we are accepting sign ups on the day too! [22:03] Brandi Cline: Logically they have to so even they can keep them straight. [22:04] Soka: Ship 1243-D would do there wouldn't it? [22:04] Brandi Cline: It would also depend on who the ship was for [22:05] Stephi: I can't wait [22:07] Rezal: opinions? [22:07] Stephi: Sounds good [22:08] Brandi Cline: It works [22:08] Atkins: I like it. Straight and to the point. We can come up with plot lines between now and then. [22:08] Rezal: thats my thinking [22:09] Atkins: Well folks I have to jet. I will ttyl. [22:09] Rezal: I was thinking something a long the lines of the romulans having a spy on the ship sabotarge (sp?) the drive, causing the ship to explode, maybe the spy can be the Liason to Star Fleet, and be on the Pulsar during the test, to escape the explosion, and be all sneaky like? [22:09] Rezal: laters Atkins [22:11] Rezal: thoughts? [22:11] Soka: I'm discussing start time with Tanya right now [22:11] Soka: well, start time of the anniversary [22:11] Rezal: Cool [22:12] Rezal: Start time would be good to add [22:12] Soka: we have free choice on Sunday so far, when do we want it? [22:12] Brandi Cline: At one point Stephi was talking about having the ship called out near the neutral zone to assist with a distress call and it being a trap [22:13] Rezal: I like the idea of it being more subtle than that, I want to try and hide the romulan involvement as much as possible [22:14] Stephi: Well it wouldn't appear one [22:15] Soka: oh it's an update [22:15] Rezal: yeah [22:15] Soka: There are some grammatical errors that could be removed [22:16] Rezal: and didn't we settle on the vulcans developing tech that was actually Romulan tech stolen by a shadow group in the Vulcan society not even known off by it's government? [22:18] Stephi: O [22:19] Soka: that doesn't have to be in the update though right? [22:19] Brandi Cline: Yes...though....I need to work on this shadow movement [22:19] Stephi: Hey [22:19] Rezal: That part doesn't no, the distress call vs the testing of new tech though alters the starting plot [22:19] Rezal: so it would alter the update [22:20] Rezal: unless we are called to the distress call while at the test flight [22:20] Rezal: causing the pulsar to abondon it's post, and the romulans could attack at that point [22:20] Brandi Cline: They could get a distress call curing the test drive [22:21] Stephi: That's what I ment [22:21] Rezal: ok this could work [22:22] Brandi Cline: And honestly, I like the idea of the Romulans trying to steal tech from the Vulcans rather then the other way around. Makes more sense to me. However we can do it that way if you really want. [22:22] Rezal: it seems like the obvious though, the expected. People expect the romulans to be sneaky [22:22] Robert: Wow really? [22:23] Brandi Cline: Really what? [22:23] Stephi: Yeah [22:24] Rezal: Numbahs - whats up? [22:25] Robert: The plot is that way because it makes for a good plot twist [22:25] Robert: A creative first story is what's needed to bring in new people [22:25] Rezal: So vote, Romulans stealing tech, or Vulcan shadow organization stealing tech, but romulans being implicated during their sabotarge?
and thats what I thought [22:25] Soka: Quick question [22:25] Soka: had we decided on how long we plan the simm to be? [22:26] Rezal: I think we are going for an hour, and seeing how people feel after that [22:26] Stephi: Ok [22:27] Soka: so we need an 1-hour timeslot at anniversary, or 1,5 hours? [22:27] Soka: 1 hour of pure simming or does the hour include welcoming, announching the rules and stuff too? [22:29] Stephi: No idea [22:29] Soka: I like the idea about the vulcans [22:29] Rezal: 1.5hrs then [22:29] Rezal: gves greeting and sign up time [22:31] Stephi: And pee breaks [22:31] Rezal: I have to head out though, discuss what I've said, feed it to Cam, and let me know what you come up with, I want to post an update with information this week. [22:32] Soka: I'll post the whole conversation on the Forum? [22:35] Rezal: sounds like a plan [22:44] Soka: looks like we'll have the first slot of the evening on Sunday unless I misunderstood something [22:47] Soka: 18.00 - 19.30 UTC is our time on Sunday [22:47] Soka: Trivia starts on 20.00 [22:48] Soka: after Trivia is the closing, probably including bullseye results [22:48] Stephi: Woo [22:51] Stephi: I know [22:55] Soka: all right, I'll post the log of this conversation on the Forums now - in its own thread.
