Right. Here's an idea for something to do. Does anyone know these internet game things where you post to move the story along (eg. Tango Fleet etc.). The commanding officer (eg. Dobberman) starts a story off something like.

"The virtual enterprise has been sent on a mission to the planet Verdinia 5 to investigate some unusual readings that were detected on a long range scan."

Every person is assigned a job or position (eg. Science officer, First Officer etc.). The person sensibly makes a post to move the story along.

Like I (Chief Science Officer) say,

"Sir, I'm detecting some unusual readings from the northern hemisphere of the planet. I suggest that we beam down a team and investigate."

Then the Chief of Security (eg. Skipper) says,

"I advise caution. Suggest that an armed security escort beam down aswell, we never know what could be going on down there."

Then, people beam down to the surface and investigate.

You'd need to post where you are and the time in the story (like an hour later if doing some repairs) but if everyone was sensible, then this could work quite well, I think. Grin

Yeah I like the Idea. We do it a few times on the Raven boards, but they generally put some comedy into it to make it more interesting because it could get boring after a while. Wink Ok, Admiral Dobberman on the Bridge Grin

So how do we register for this? And why are all the global announcements locked.
