Yes! Mission 4 is a go. Make sure to read the new rules. And I'll make sure the USS Columbia status screen is up soon. Scooter, could you tell me the links to the pics of the Defiant decks with crew quarter labels on them.

Time to change your signatures everyone now! Make sure it says USS Columbia, not USS 10to5.

In case you were wondering, I chose USS Columbia, because it was easy to think of. I got it from British Columbia Grin

Also, I say when we leave, so everyone get settled in first. I'll put up the NPC's names too somewhere on here.

LOL, I was going to suggest that the name be the U.S.S. Arizona but we all know what happened to that ship.

Jeez, these rules are starting to get complicated. Maybe you should write a textbook and teach a class Na na! j/k

The USS Arizona? Doesn't ring a bell. Refresh my memory. Also, there is already a USS Arizona in Tango Fleet, I wouldnt want to copy.

The U.S.S. Arizona was destroyed at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 by the Japanese. The bodies of about 200 sailors are still trapped in the sunken ship today.

Sorry, I didn't think about whether any of you would know it. Where I live, everyone knows about it.

I like the new ship name. Wink

Do we still have in-story comments? Do they go after the OFF?
Personally, I think in-story commented shouldn't be allowed. That's what this topic is for.

We don't have an operations officer, do we? Because I don't think Starbase 5 would like anybody sitting on his lap. On Defiant class starships, CONN and OPS are the same station.

It is an 80's show based in Hawaii about a Private Investigator living on a rich writter's estate. The PI's name is Thomas Magnum. He fought in Vietnam. The caretaker of the estate's name is Higgins. He is a snobby British dude who tells war stories and does "high class" things. Thomas has 2 main friends. Rick and T.C. Rick owns a bar and has connections in the criminal world. T.C is a big black guy who owns a helocopter charter company and loves baseball. That basically sums up the details of the series.

Yep, Starbase 5, your station is at the front.

The defiant has a shuttle that can be launched at warp and keep travelling at warp. It cannot go to warp, only launched at warp.

What do you all think of my crew status page?

That's not meant to say homosexual. Dobberman must think it's a bad word, and censored it. It is meant to say:

Anga-yla (without the dash) - it is a name of someone from my school. It might mean something in Irish.

I changed it to Angela to get around this.

By the way, Bajoran names are lastname followed by firstname. You might want to change it to Ensign Kolari Angela.

It sounded Bajoran when it was Anga-yla. Angela doesnt sound right. Can anyone think of a better name (remember its Bajoran).

Obiko. If you want to be a bolian, can you think of a Bolian name for yourself. If you can, tell me, I'll change it. (They're just one word, like Chell)

Starbase 5, can you pick a first name for Ensign Daniels please.

Are you sure Cardassian names are the same? We did you see that?

Quote:
Bajoran names follow similar rules to American names, except in reverse: family name, than given name. They generally have a softer sound than Klingon or Romulan names. Examples are Kordan Lan, Talin Ra, and (of course) Kira Nerys.

To be fair, for the game the ranks are now based on experience rather than number of posts.

The science lab is on deck 2 next to sickbay, which is next to the messhall, which is next to Simmo's quarters. Look at the diagram of deck 2. See the 2 room a the front of the ship with the green things inside? Those are the labs.

LOL! That name came to his mind and he asked me who Jack Daniels was but I couldn't remember.

There used to be a magician in the UK by the name of Paul Daniels. He passed away by now I would think, but his son is named after him.

Go find one yourself. It takes longer for me to find a picture of him, upload it to my server, and post it here, than it does for you to just search for it yourself and see it that way.

Not at first, they'll be their own person, and if it gets so full that there is no room for any more, they take the place of NPC's. That wont happen for a while though.

Lieutenant Obiko was in Commander Scooter's office, swinging around in his commanding officer's swivel chair, when he saw the doors opening. Since he knew the Commander was on the bridge, and he knew Kolell was in her quarters, he jumped up. He had a question to ask the Commander, and he didn't want to be caught messing while on shift. The person in front of him wasn't Commander Scooter, however. He looked human, but with his long, scraggly hair covering his ears he could be Vulcan or Romulan. Obiko's hand went to his badge, but the stranger held up a phaser.

"Don't move, medicine boy," he said in a gruff, impatient voice.

He motioned with the phaser, and Obiko, weaponless, marched obediently to the corner.

"You and I are going to play a little game called 'Siege'" the man said.

Yes, YOU are, aren't you?


I wasn't here for that part of the conversation. I quoted it and posted before reading the rest of the thread.

Don't you start talking to me about posting out of context What ever!

Here, let me make a rhetorical question for you to answer. Grin

Chapman, I'm mad only in the game, and there's nothing wrong with it.

Remember in that DS9 episode where Sisko got news that the 5th Fleet had lost, and only had 15 ships left out of 112.

He got mad and smashed the table with his fist. And look what happened, they WON the war.

I was just reminding you that I had posted that little bit yesterday because it appears that you didn't notice. Just trying to keep continuity. Wink

my guess that it is because there was a faction that broke off from the Dominion because they didn't like the fact of being allied with the federation, I am sure that it is sometime after the dominion war

You've only been here a week. Before you were here, there was a lot of spamming going on. Everyone was getting excited about the mod being released. As soon as the delays got longer and longer, we calmed down (well, most of us did).

Not spamming right now but maybe later carlos_technology said:
on:
I guess the rest of the team is asleep
Harry, go and scout ahead, I will back you up, I have layed up a plan, lets take route A

meanwhile: the rest of the team wake up and split up, some of them take route B, the others take route C.

now back to route A,
+simmo, we have found what appears to be a massive warp core, what should we do with it+
+you should examine it+
+we have found that it is linked to the dominion ships, it is helping them maintain warp 9.999999, they will be here tomorrow, what should we do, destroying the core will make them travel at their normal warp speed+
+do it+
+warp core destroyed+

to route B
+commander technology, we have found a recreational area, that is used to train dominion soldiers+
+shoot to kill, then report to the massive warp core in route A+

to route C
+commander technology, we have found a living quarters area and a door to route D+
+shoot to kill but don't go into route D yet, when done come to the massive warp core in route A, so that we can regroup and go to route D together+

+Captain simmo, can you examine what is in route D, and tell us, because we don't know the dangers in route D, because its locked and our scaners can't penetrate it+

off:
how will we disable the dominion fleet

well, at least it is not being split up into several pieces, which is spamming, if I was spamming I would split it up into 4 or more parts, I didn't solve it in one post, it will eventually be added to,

And how do you link a warp core on the planet to the ships coming to us. The reaction in the warp core powers the ship. Having one on the planet LOL! . That idea is really stupid, but we'll have to go along with it.

well, you can link a warp core to a ship by a very high powered deflector dish that sends lots of power to give the ship extra power to power a single system that makes the ship go faster

I can't remember where Carlos asked me to add the NPCs to the deck maps, so I'll just post here.

I've added the NPCs to the deck maps. As always, the changes are reflected automatically in ship status. Note: Obiko, I moved your quarters to deck 2 because you are Lt. JG. I'm keeping the juniors on deck 1 and the seniors on deck 2.

For mission 5, we will have more junior officers than there are quarters on deck 1, so I will be moving ensigns to deck 2, starting with the ones who will be promoted after mission 5 (Dobberman, Manhunter, and Chapman; in that order).

As Simmo said in another topic, the NPCs on the 10to5 don't get quarters. Assignment of crew quarters serves no real purpose. It's just for fun. The only reason they are on the 10to5 is to give cadets practice in using them. They are not even regular crew members because the 10to5 is only used between missions.

I'll try and update the 10to5 site today. That site will be for the 10to5. It'd be too hard always doing the Columbia on there, it'd be easier to use the forum for that.

The 10to5 site will have details of the crew when used for training etc, and what it is between missions, OK?

I think after we battle the dominion, that should be the end of the mission. This mission has been utter crap. We've done almost everything but help people in the Orias system. Most of the survivors we found were Jem'Hadar. Can we have a mission where we don't fight unfriendly aliens? Most often missions do go the way they are supposed to.

I wanted to help the people, but then there was sabotage and other stuff that went on that FliX started with his bad console. Sporto planeted a bomb. Obiko found the sabouter in sickbay with a phaser. Sporto said there was a dominion bomb. I sent them down to the planet to help, as I wanted them to do. I sent the medics to some injuries, as I wanted. Obiko found Dominion people who attacked you during rescue. I said that there were strange reading south-east of the city, coz I had to figure out how to make this plot come together (you have no idea how hard that is) by putting a something there. Then Obiko got shot at by Jemhadar. I identified the south-east thingy as a building, which Carlos messed up saying was a stupid warp core thing. Sporto made Dominion ships come. I had to say what ships to accomodate it well. Sporto got trapped in that building. Carlos goes 4 routes at once making the story worse. I had to solve it all by saying to fight. We fight, and somehow Carlos fixes the ship, modifies phaser fire rate, gives us regenerative torpedoes Huh? and then regenerative shields which cant just be done like that.

I wanted a simple mission, a nice easy one. Like I did with the diplomatic mission 2, and all the training ones.

I was thinking that the engineering items could be condensed into one

Engineering Kit
Plasma Torch
Hyper Spanner
Holographic Projector

could be condensed into something called Advanced Engineering Kit, with a plasma torch, hyperspanner, holographic projector and the engineering kit in one package.

I was thinking that the medical items could be condensed into one

Hypospray
Medical Kit

could be condensed into something called Advanced medical kit, with a hypospray and the medical kit in one package
add the dermal regenerator and the experimental organ regenerator (shown in a tng episode, the episode where Worf gets his spinal cord damaged) to the list

you could make a weapon (any weapon, but one1 weapon only but you can have more as extra) and a tricorder standard equipment, and have extras for each skill level (not more then 4) and use the pattern buffer I talked about earlier to store equipment

if so, here is an updated list for when the ship gets refitted
(at drydock after mission 4 is completed)

Items on board:

Tricorder (9)

Tactical/Security
Phaser Type 1 (3)
Phaser Type 2 (4)
Phaser Compression Rifle (4)
Phaser Compression Rifle Type 2 (2)
plasma grenades [10 grenades in 1 package] (1)

Med/Sci

Advanced Medical Kit [all medical items in one package]
[except for the Experimental Organ Regenerator] (5)

Hypospray (5)
Medical Kit (3)
Dermal Regenerator (1)
Experimental Organ Regenerator (1)

Engineering

Advanced Engineering kit [all engineering items in one package](10)

Engineering Kit (6)
Plasma Torch (2)
Hyper Spanner (1)
Holographic Projector (1)

what do you think of my idea

Some good ideas here. Isn't the holographic projector ONLY in EF?
There are definitely times when it seems silly that the hypospray is not part of the medkit, like when I'm supposed to fight off aliens without any weapon. Yes, we should all have tricorders, but a medkit has a medical tricorder already included (slips in the side). I think in VOY they introduced an engineering tricorder but I'm not sure. We don't need a standard tricorder for everyone. Would be nice to have a dermal regenerator on away missions. Then I wouldn't have to keep bringing people on board.

that engineering tricorder is true

from
http://www.bigrp.demon.co.uk/database/engtrivoy.html

Engineering Tricorder

Diagnostic device specially calibrated for use on mechanical
systems. The layout of the Starfleet version is intentionally
similar to their standard tricorder to allow easy operation.

I believe someone has the holographic projector in their inventory

it is on EF and Away Team

i think things should come standard for whatever skills/posision you have

IE: engineering: standard engineer kit
security: phaser t-2
medical: medkit
command: phaser t-1
science: tricorder
and then two of whatever else you want

i think that the advanced kits (refer to carloses above post)
should only go to people of higher rank

and different races should have different abilities depending on race

klingons have more strengh and stamina
humans have more charisma and are more adaptable to surroundings

and so on......

I think we should sorta have the Character sorta tell you their race,age,blady blady blah.

It would realy help us actully understand
who your character is...


Also,in Star Trek people dont just have "Standard" weapons that they choose.They actully carry a large amount of weapons with them.

EVERYONE:Ohhhh....

Also,what would a puny Defiant class ship be doing all alone sent to fight off aliens??Realy!I mean,mabey if there was a stronger vessel,or a few more Defiant Class ships,then ok,but a defiant would be destroyed by dominion like DAT.Well shure,they can fight of 10,but MOST OF THE DOMINON FLEET??By the way,we dont call the rebeling Dominons dominons.AHHHHHHHH!!!!By the way,I just posted a link to this.Also,mabey someday you could advance from this puny forum,into an EZboard.

I wanted to help the people, but then there was sabotage and other stuff that went on that FliX started with his bad console. Sporto planeted a bomb. Obiko found the sabouter in sickbay with a phaser. Sporto said there was a dominion bomb. I sent them down to the planet to help, as I wanted them to do. I sent the medics to some injuries, as I wanted. Obiko found Dominion people who attacked you during rescue. I said that there were strange reading south-east of the city, coz I had to figure out how to make this plot come together (you have no idea how hard that is) by putting a something there. Then Obiko got shot at by Jemhadar. I identified the south-east thingy as a building, which Carlos messed up saying was a stupid warp core thing. Sporto made Dominion ships come. I had to say what ships to accomodate it well. Sporto got trapped in that building. Carlos goes 4 routes at once making the story worse. I had to solve it all by saying to fight. We fight, and somehow Carlos fixes the ship, modifies phaser fire rate, gives us regenerative torpedoes Huh? and then regenerative shields which cant just be done like that.

I wanted a simple mission, a nice easy one. Like I did with the diplomatic mission 2, and all the training ones.


I was just trying to go with the flow. But I agree, we should lay off the hostile alien routine, it's getting old.

Also,mabey someday you could advance from this puny forum,into an EZboard.


No way! phpBB is a zillion times better than EZboard. EZboard is utter crap. With phpBB, Vanhal and Dobberman have 100% control over everything. You won't get that with EZboard. Besides, EZboard you have to pay for if you don't want stupid banner ads. I like our good old free phpBB just fine thank you very much. The only changes should be upgrades of phpBB when new versions are released (if that's possible).

OK, I like the idea of standard items for your position. You'd get that, AND your 2 items of any choice from MY list.

I think only department heads should get the advanced items.

And the items should be available separately too. Look on "Away team." One of the people had 'just a hypsopray' and stuff.

I still want my hypospray and compression rifle. But I want to know what all the departments should have as standard (since you missed some out)

Command
Navigation
Engineering
Security
Medical
Science
Other (eg Counsellor)

the counselor doesn't need counseling tools, but maybe they could have it called a skill that they get if they become a counselor (eg. they become a betazoid)

I disagree. I think the Starfleet Marines were a stupid idea. It completely goes against Starfleet not being a military organization.

well, there is a pod for marines that can be attached to a New Orleans class, and I believe it is just quarters for the marines.

there are real marines for Starfleet

Errrr......Its a little hard to role play on a Forum without a spec. of the ship(not just a drawing!!!!),info on people.....

Geesse...Im leaving this place.BRAVO fleet is way better.





Ohh by the way Sporto,there are seprate sims!Each ship has its own
crew!Theres 50 ships!!And positions are always open!And you know more about the character!!!!!

For all I know,Scooter could be a bolian!But is anyone telling us that??Nooooo.

Include a little "Sign Up" thread,where they would post info about their character,like wieght and heght,or age!ALSO!At Bravo fleet you get to choose their personality,and character history!

So Sporto,is this realy better??If your looking for the fForums,there is none.Its called Play By Play Email Role playing!!

Well, this is a forum. We play the virtual game here. If we did it on a PBEM basis, it wouldnt be on a forum would it. You'd have to check the email too. If anyone wants to try this in a PBEM way, then post it in the new poll i've posted.

Aren't there specs under ship status? I don't think I'm a Bolian, at least not the last time I checked. Although Carlos is species 8472. Wink I have nothing against detailed characters, but I don't see a real need for it either. Knowing how tall Simmo is wouldn't make the Virtual Game more fun for me than it already is. We already know a few people's ages, where we're from is in our profile (if you filled it in), and we don't have much history because the 10to5 was our first assignment. We all (except the admins) started out here as cadets at one time or another.

Really? Because this place isnt just for the Virtual Game. That was my idea about 5 months into it. So if you're going to leave, just leave the ship.

DANG IT!!All thosse fleets take forever to exept you!

But realy Simmo,is training realy neccisary to join??I mean,we dont need to do it,and to tell you the truth,I just want to play a mission!



Im not leaving this ship.
All the other sites are weird...

Scooter,Detailed characters are needed!
We dont know the age,because where did they tell you?We are talking about the virtual game,not the forums!!!!

And history isnt realy starfleet history!You could have been,say,a Cardassian Malitia for most of the war and then you went to join starfleet because you were tired of Cardassia...That helps a lot.

I don't think so, but if you want to detail your character that's fine by me. I don't see how that helps the game. Maybe someone who thinks so should explain it. I think it's more fun to develop our characters as we go along, rather than sit down and figure it all out right away.

The basic layout of the game is what makes it so great. When we post, (at least for me), I try to follow the list of crewmembers and ship inventory/stats. As it is now, following these things when making a post to the game is almost too much work for me to do. Any more detailed and I wouldn't really care enough to play. Besides, what good would adding detailed character info do? Knowing that, say, Scooter is a Bajoran, wouldn't make much difference in how the game is played. If anything, it would make too much of a clutter. Using these forums are, in my opinion, easier to keep track of.

Though I beleive that the virtual game has become a highlight of efmods, it really just started out as a thing to do to hold us over until VE is released. It was not started to be a serious game, but a casual one, which is what I prefer. To tell you the truth, when I come here, I no longer think about VE, just these forums. VE will just be a very cool bonus.

I guess the moral of the story is: STAY!!!!! This game is so much cooler because it is casual, easy to use, and most of all, FUN! Grin
