  2. Hi, I'm brand new, don't know much about this kind of thing at all, so I wanted to check out the rules. I clicked the link under help, but it just takes me back to the home page. I found that when clicking news, schedule, or anything under help I was taken back to the home page. I started off on chrome (signed in), tried firefox, microsoft edge, and internet explorer (without signing in, not sure if that matters), as well as the samsung internet browser on my phone (also signed in). I encountered the same problem no matter the browser. I'm not sure if I'm missing something obvious or what. Any help would be appreciated, whether it's saying 'You dummy, it's this, this and this" or providing a link to a pdf version of the rules or something. Thank you!

  7. SD 1024.2021 MISSION BRIEF: Excalibur is working on a back up plan in case the Kavians prove to be unwilling to abandon their plans to harvest the Opterans for ~slavery~ powering their civilization, while Captain Swain and Commander Stanton have beamed aboard the Kavian vessel to ~make mischief~ stall them. TBS is about 30-45 minutes.
  8. MISSION BRIEF: Excalibur, in an effort to protect the creatures known to us as the Opterans have sent to the Kavia -- who are intent on harvesting them, presumably to power their civilization -- a recording from the Opterans to show that they are sentient life forms. The Kavian commander has agreed to investigate the possibility further, but has ordered her crew to resume harvesting in the interim. When we last left our valiant crew, they were considering their options. MEE6 BOT 17-Oct-21 07:12 PM ======== BEGIN SIM ======== ======== BEGIN SIM ======== ======== BEGIN SIM ======== William Chocox 17-Oct-21 07:14 PM William was in engineering, coordinating the people fixing the mess while they waited to hear back from the Opterans. Captain Swain 17-Oct-21 07:14 PM Swain sat, looking cross at the viewer as shuttles continued to go back and forth from the Kavian ship to the surface Irene Mincine 17-Oct-21 07:14 PM Irene and some nerds are huddled at the science station trying to work out a way to make the tachyons unpalatable without starting an armed conflict. Erich Jaenke 17-Oct-21 07:15 PM Indaura found herself back in medical, just in case something happens. Something always happens. CdrMirandaHawthorne 17-Oct-21 07:16 PM Cdr Jalen Stanton> If they could defend themselves, they would have done so before now. Wouldn't they? ::Musing aloud to himself.:: Captain Swain 17-Oct-21 07:16 PM Frowning Rex> I would hope so. Maryse Dubois 17-Oct-21 07:17 PM ::Steps out of her office, and out into medical. She spots Indaura coming in.:: Counselor. Captain Swain 17-Oct-21 07:17 PM What about the barrier around the planet's core? Is there any way we could disrupt it? Its what’s keeping the Opterans here in the first place. Erich Jaenke 17-Oct-21 07:18 PM Doctor. :: she paused :: Things are ready here in medical. Not a lot of counseling going on at the moment. Irene Mincine 17-Oct-21 07:19 PM Irene looks up from the huddle. "You'd have to talk to Engineering about that one, Captain. Disrupting an energy barrier is the easy part, doing it at that depth without blowing out the deflector and every power conduit on the ship is the hard part." Maryse Dubois 17-Oct-21 07:19 PM ::Nods.:: Have you been on the bridge recently? Captain Swain 17-Oct-21 07:20 PM +Will+ Want to blow something up? William Chocox 17-Oct-21 07:21 PM William looks up from his console +Swain+ "Does a bear walk in the woods?" Erich Jaenke 17-Oct-21 07:22 PM I was there an hour ago. We appear to be defending our new friends. Captain Swain 17-Oct-21 07:23 PM +Will+ Good. I want you to work with science to figure out a way to disrupt the energy field around the planet's core without blowing out our deflector dish. Looks over to Stanton I also have an idea on how to slow the Kavians down, if you're up for a field trip. Looks mischievously Though you might think I am a bit daft. William Chocox 17-Oct-21 07:24 PM +Swain+ "I won't let you down." Irene Mincine 17-Oct-21 07:24 PM Irene> +Will+ "Irene here. I've got some ideas on how we can do it, but we're going to need some pretty strong amplification to get past all that rock and subspace energy down there." Maryse Dubois 17-Oct-21 07:25 PM I see. Have they found a solution I wonder. CdrMirandaHawthorne 17-Oct-21 07:25 PM Cdr Jalen Stanton> Is that any different than usual? ::Slight grin.:: I'm game. William Chocox 17-Oct-21 07:25 PM +Irene+ "I'd love to hear your ideas. I'm starting to get some of my own." Erich Jaenke 17-Oct-21 07:26 PM Last I heard they were searching, but yet to find. CdrMirandaHawthorne 17-Oct-21 07:26 PM Ens Reynolds> ::Lifts eyebrows at Will.:: Captain is giving you permission to blow something up? William Chocox 17-Oct-21 07:26 PM William turns to Reynolds "This is absolutely the best day of my life." Captain Swain 17-Oct-21 07:26 PM Clark, open a channel to the Kavians. Clark> Looks over to Val and the does so Channel open sir. Irene Mincine 17-Oct-21 07:26 PM +Will+ With a grin, that surely can be heard over the radio. "I'm on my way down to Engineering." And with that, she and a few of the other science ensigns head on down the turbolift. Maryse Dubois 17-Oct-21 07:27 PM Is it true that the hunters are using the Opterans as an energy source? Irene Mincine 17-Oct-21 07:27 PM Val> Looks at Clark at the same time. "This should be interesting." She gets out before the channel opens. CdrMirandaHawthorne 17-Oct-21 07:27 PM Ens Reynolds> I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't heard it with my own ears! Captain Swain 17-Oct-21 07:28 PM +Kavia+ Excalibur to Kavian vessel. I'd like to propose a... rapprochement. I believe we may have been too hasty in demanding you not harvest the creatures, but I will need to send a team over inspect the ... conditions that you are keeping them, for my report back to my superiors. Surely you can understand. Erich Jaenke 17-Oct-21 07:30 PM Yes, a biological source of energy due to their unique physiology. Maryse Dubois 17-Oct-21 07:30 PM ::Nods.:: Have we considered offering other means of energy? Consider, if we were to be successful in stopping them from obtaining the creatures, then what would happen to the other society? Captain Swain 17-Oct-21 07:32 PM Kaladok> +Excalibur+ Appears on the screen I see. I would be willing to allow a small team from your crew to... inspect the creatures holding area. Though this is most irregular, I am willing in the interest of ending this standoff. Sending transporter coordinates now. Erich Jaenke 17-Oct-21 07:32 PM Altering their means of energy production is not an easy task. They feel they are farming a renewable resource. Captain Swain 17-Oct-21 07:33 PM Looks over to Jalen as he stands up Rex, you have the bridge. Jalen, shall we? CdrMirandaHawthorne 17-Oct-21 07:33 PM Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::Straightens his tunic as he stands, nodding.:: Captain Swain 17-Oct-21 07:33 PM Rex> Starts to protest, but has the good sense to keep his mouth shut Maryse Dubois 17-Oct-21 07:34 PM I can see where there is an appeal. Irene Mincine 17-Oct-21 07:34 PM Val> Looks to Clark. "How in the world did that work?" She whispers to him. Captain Swain 17-Oct-21 07:35 PM Clark> Shakes his head equally unsure (I did a dice roll behind the scenes lol ) Erich Jaenke 17-Oct-21 07:36 PM What do you give them? Solar? Geothermal? Fusion? Irene Mincine 17-Oct-21 07:36 PM Irene arrives in Engineering with eggheads in tow, making her way straight to Will. "Okay. To counteract a field of this strength... we're going to need... this much energy. We need to reduce that, uh, significantly, if we want to have a ship left afterward." Maryse Dubois 17-Oct-21 07:37 PM ::Shrugs:: That is for engineers to decide. CdrMirandaHawthorne 17-Oct-21 07:39 PM Ens Reynolds> ::Backs up a bit as Science arrives, more than a little intimidated by their big brains.:: William Chocox 17-Oct-21 07:39 PM William looks at the numbers. "I'm sure we could make this work. Maybe if we took an ultra-condensed beam." Captain Swain 17-Oct-21 07:39 PM Television magic takes them to the transporter room fairly quickly Irene Mincine 17-Oct-21 07:40 PM Irene shrugs. "I just come up with the numbers. If you can make 'em work, great." Captain Swain 17-Oct-21 07:41 PM Looks over to Jalen This may not be one of my better ideas. William Chocox 17-Oct-21 07:41 PM "I'm sure we can make this work." Turns to Reynolds "You think we could make this work?" CdrMirandaHawthorne 17-Oct-21 07:42 PM Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::Shrugs.:: It isn't the worst, I'm sure. We have to at least give them time... Captain Swain 17-Oct-21 07:43 PM Nods as he steps onto the transporter padd Remind me to tell you sometime about the time I nearly caused an intergalactic incident in a bar when I was a cadet. Erich Jaenke 17-Oct-21 07:44 PM How have you been doctor? You know, I should schedule you for a session. CdrMirandaHawthorne 17-Oct-21 07:45 PM Ens Reynolds> ::Blinks, looking at the data.:: Ah... yes. Though with a beam that strong, we'll also need to factor in the stresses on the power systems. Irene Mincine 17-Oct-21 07:45 PM "And we're going to get plenty of feedback trying to neutralize that power output, too. I don't know how long we can keep our beam going." CdrMirandaHawthorne 17-Oct-21 07:45 PM Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::Rolls his eyes.:: Somehow, I'd guess that is fairly commonplace with you. Sir. ::Smirks.:: Captain Swain 17-Oct-21 07:45 PM Looks to the transporter chief Energize. William Chocox 17-Oct-21 07:45 PM "Well, if anyone has experience blowing out the power system it's me." Maryse Dubois 17-Oct-21 07:46 PM ::Smirks:: Long enough to know how to get out of things. Irene Mincine 17-Oct-21 07:47 PM Irene laughs at that one. "Hey, at least I don't have to clean it up afterward. Okay, let's figure out how we're going to do this..." Erich Jaenke 17-Oct-21 07:47 PM :: mockingly writes in her hand :: Avoids obligations., Maryse Dubois 17-Oct-21 07:47 PM ::Grins:: Erich Jaenke 17-Oct-21 07:48 PM It's hard to get people to see me... ship obligations and all that. William Chocox 17-Oct-21 07:49 PM "If I remember correctly, the station monkeys had to fix it." Maryse Dubois 17-Oct-21 07:50 PM ::Nods.:: Just as hard as getting them to their physicals. William Chocox 17-Oct-21 07:51 PM Has not had a physical since his entry physical at the Academy. CdrMirandaHawthorne 17-Oct-21 07:52 PM Ens Reynolds> ::A bit scared at the level of damage they're assuming the ship will undergo.:: Captain Swain 17-Oct-21 07:52 PM $ Shimmers on to the Kavian vessel where they are greeted by the ships first officer and a small cadre of what appear to be security officers Irene Mincine 17-Oct-21 07:54 PM "Not our problem, then." Irene nods sagely. William Chocox 17-Oct-21 07:54 PM "We still have to get back to the station." Irene Mincine 17-Oct-21 07:56 PM "...true." She takes over a nearby computer panel. "I'll start setting up simulations and see if I can get any help from the computer." William Chocox 17-Oct-21 07:57 PM "Thank you Irene. We should have some open consoles down here if you don't want to trek all the way back to Science." Irene Mincine 17-Oct-21 07:58 PM "Good." She starts reciting technobabble at the eggheads, who split off into teams and turn the open consoles into a simulation lab. "...probably safer in here, anyway." Erich Jaenke 17-Oct-21 07:59 PM Indy tapped her comm Doctor Ryssan to bridge. What is our status? William Chocox 17-Oct-21 08:00 PM "You'd be surprised about the dangers here."

CdrBrown: @ So, if we continue to close it, the gravitational waves will persist at greater intensity? Scott Coleridge: @::nods at Brown:: If we aren't careful. See, the field is like a battery. It has been soaking up potential energy from subspace and storing it as it expands. Our torpedo didn't work; it fed the field energy, and that's why the field grew. Our deflector pulse caused the battery to discharge its energy in the form of those gravitational waves, but only partially. Scott Coleridge: @ So we need to find a safer way to discharge it the rest of the way, because we can't just go about setting off gravitational waves willy-nilly. I'm not *that* irresponsible. CdrBrown: @ So, we either need to do things slowly, or have something with the ability to handle the energy. Scott Coleridge: @ We need a controlled demolition. CdrBrown: @ What if we positioned multiple ships around the epicenter and use lower yield pulses.... We can use the Deke, Missouri, Iowa, and Nimitz.

Nijil tr'Korjata: @ A kind of space moth? :: looks at the readings again :: Nijil tr'Korjata: @ If that is the case, we only need a flame. CdrBrown: @and while it may not be a lifeform per se, it may respond similarly - particles attracting or repelling particles. Scott Coleridge: @ I think we're maybe straying from the problem parameters here. Scott Coleridge: @ Nothing in the readings we have at this time has suggested a life form is involved. Nijil tr'Korjata: @ :: the knocking about reminded him of being on an ocean :: Nijil tr'Korjata: @ Magnetic monopoles? Is that what these are? Chirakis: Lt Slater> We're good, ma'am. A lot of information is coming through.... from Command. :::sends it over::: CdrBrown: @::jolts again, with more intensity:: That was a rough one Chirakis: ::Moving to her console and nods to Mimi as she begins to page through the information:::: mimipavilion: ::nods:: Cptn d'Ka: @ ::::watching and listening as he passes info on to Missouri::: Nijil tr'Korjata: @ To this day the monopole is unproven. Scott Coleridge: @ We have subspace field of indeterminate origin that disrupts warp fields. Scott Coleridge: @ Our initial attempt to disrupt the field using calibrated antimatter explosions didn't work. My next idea was to emit a deflector pulse to invert the field on itself, but I'm willing to abandon that if we think it wouldn't work either. CdrBrown: @ Which means mass does not affect it. Scott Coleridge: @ What we need is a new hypothesis about how we can disperse the field…. or, as Commander Brown suggested, perhaps move it. Nijil tr'Korjata: @ Which could be in a domain where magnetic monopoles exist. The antimatter likely reached the domain these monopoles exist within. CdrBrown: @::Scott: were you looking at wide-beam or narrow-beam for the deflector pulse? Nijil tr'Korjata: @ It's likely a 50-50 chance. Scott Coleridge: @::Brown:: Wide. CdrBrown: @::Scott: no reason to assume it won't work. It may not cause the field to collapse, but it could produce a response, give us more data on the next step to take. Nijil tr'Korjata: @ If it moves, it could move us with it. mimipavilion: ::does her work and whatever work that's needed in CnC:: Scott Coleridge: @::Nijil:: Is that a reservation or a vote in favour? Nijil tr'Korjata: @ Both of us have reservations. If we prepare enough we may be able to ride out a less than desirable outcome. Scott Coleridge: @ We already ran the simulations ::glances at Cayne:: Scott Coleridge: @ I think we have all the calibrations ready. I was waiting to hear any objections or alternatives. But if this is our best idea for now, we need to try something. Chirakis: ::Leaning back with a sigh, she stands and walks through CnC:::: Cdr Wyatt Cayne: @ I have nothing to add. Prepare to fire. Scott Coleridge: @::Brown:: Alert Aegis about what we are going to attempt. CdrBrown: @::Scott: Aye Jylliene: ::scrolling through the updates:: CdrBrown: @+Aegis+ this is Aegean. Tarisa: @ It is the most sound strategy at the moment. Jylliene: +Aegean+ Aegis here, go ahead. Jylliene: ::glances over to Chirakis, waves her over:: Chirakis: :::turns:: Yes, Commander? Jylliene: Aegean on comm. CdrBrown: @+Aegis+ We are going to attempt a wide-beam deflector pulse in an effort to invert the field on itself. Chirakis: Send it through. Jylliene: +Aegean+...come again? Chirakis: :::sits at her console::: Jylliene: ::sends voice to Chirakis:: Jylliene: +Aegean+ Could you repeat, please? CdrBrown: @+Aegis+ We are going to attempt a wide-beam deflector pulse in an effort to invert the field on itself. Chirakis: :::covers her voice to listen::: ((Captain here. Proceed)) Nijil tr'Korjata: @ :: Checking power levels :: Annisha: :: At the nearest window, looking out into space :: CdrBrown: @+Aegis+ At best, the field goes away.... otherwise, the plan is to see if the pulse causes any kind of movement of the phenomena, perhaps provide us data to see if we can steer it away. Chirakis: ((Commander Brown, and Commander Coleridge agrees?)) CdrBrown: @+Aegis+ yes Captain. He believes this to be the best course of action at this time. Chirakis: ((Very well. Proceed.)) CdrBrown: @+Aegis+ understood. Aegean out. CdrBrown: @::Scott:: We have final approval from Captain Chirakis. Scott Coleridge: @ All right. Bring Aegean into the optimal position, Commander Brown. Scott Coleridge: @ Commander Cayne, prepare to initiate the deflector pulse on my mark. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: @ Aye, at your command. Nijil tr'Korjata: @ Power levels are in the green. Jylliene: ::keeping a very close watch on sensors:: Alexis McFarland: ::Looks out into space as well, glad they finished the weeding:: Scott Coleridge: @ Commander Tarisa, once we initiate the pulse, I'll need you to watch the readings very carefully. If there are any adverse effects we need to be ready to react. Scott Coleridge: @::Nijil:: Acknowledged, thank you. Tarisa: @ ::Nods.:: Aye. CdrBrown: @::brings the ship about:: CdrBrown: @ We are in position. Scott Coleridge: @::Brown:: Are we in position? Chirakis: :::stands, listening under cover:: CdrBrown: @::Scott: Aye Cdr Wyatt Cayne: @ Ready CdrBrown: @::thinks to himself, one day our greatest challenges will be able to handle just by playing "Indian Love Call" by Slim Whitman....:: Scott Coleridge: @ Initiate the deflector pulse. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: @ Initiating pulse. :: presses :: Chirakis: =/\==/\=PAUSE SIM=/\==/\= Chirakis: =/\==/\=PAUSE SIM=/\==/\= Chirakis: Thank you Chirakis: Now I wonder what will happen. Chirakis: Or perhaps did happen? CdrBrown: If we wind up time traveling, I hope we wind up in the Renaissance... Scott Coleridge: Shhh don't give Chirakis ideas. Chirakis: Very well... Number One, have you any thoughts other than "The sky is falling, the sky is falling"? Scott Coleridge: Nope Chirakis: Thoughts for anyone else? Chirakis: Apparently they do not think much Number One.... Chirakis: Crew dismissed. Be well. Be Safe. Don’t forget your towel.
  25. = /\ = Aegis Mission Brief 10/8/21 = /\ = 12 August 2388 - Stardate 2388.225 TBS is 1300 hours. The time is 08:00 (8:00 am) Aegis Local As personnel aboard the Aegean continue to investigate the unusual phenomenon, the area gives sudden jolts. The jolts are not enough to injure personnel, but powerful enough to jerk the area now and then. USS Missouri and USS Iowa attempt to put a cordon around the area. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. Starfleet Command sends USS Nimitz to assist. No other ships are allowed in the area. The bubble that surrounds Aegis has remained stable. The Aegean advised the Deke Sayton to hold 0.5 AU from the estimated epicentre

  28. Hello, Rampage. We'd be excited to have you join any of our ongoing sims. We no longer do academies, however. You're encouraged to watch a sim in progress that works with your time and see if you're interested in joining. Just contact the commanding officer of which ever sim looks good to you. Currently there are four sims operating using two chat programs to play. Sky Harbor Aegis, Fridays, 9 pm ET - Official STSF Chat Room USS Arcadia, Sundays, 9 pm ET - Discord USS Excalibur, Sundays, 10 pm ET - Discord USS Manticore, Mondays, 10 pm ET - Discord All times and dates are in US zones of course. I'll post a discord link at the bottom for you if you're interested in looking over there. If you have any questions or are unfamiliar with Discord please feel free to ask. Discord Link----> https://discord.gg/97XnXuJn
  29. Hello all. I am a Star Trek fan from the UK (Wales specifically) and I have been interested in joining for a while but as I am in the UK the timezone was an issue. I am starting a new job soon where I will be working nights and so I'll be able to take part in STSF sims! Are there any starfleet academy sessions planned?
