hmm..

Pushing the rock... That might do it. We probably need to alter its course only slightly for the asteroid to miss Calican II.

But... Even with 70's or 80's technology, would they not be able to see us do it? Unless ofc we would be able to do it by hiding behind the thing, latching into it well enough to stay connected when pushing and the firing the warp engines to give it a shove?

Could we use the holodeck to simulate different kinds of results? Or are the holoprojectors on the Bridge powerful enough to visualize the effects of different things we can try?

Breaking the asteroid apart with torpedos would possibly leave us thousands of smaller asteroids to destroy with phaser arrays, right? And those would be flying in all directions.

Hey folks,

Post from me is in process.  Sorry, this is my on call week, AND I'm working out of a different office.  AND baseball practice has started. 

I wanted to take a moment to talk about post formatting.  Trek is funny in that we regulate this more than typical games, I get that.  But here are a few reminders:

Character speech goes inside of quotes, no matter who they are talking to - it can be someone in the same room, someone over a communicator, the computer.

"Hello, Doctor," the Captain said.
"Drake to Engineering, damage report!"

Character thoughts go in italics. 

What sort of hare-brained scheme was he up to this time, Bob wondered.

Speech coming from a communicator or intercom, or comuter speech, gets the little =/\= markup.

=/\=Stand by, Captain=/\= Kennedy replied over the intercom.  =/\=I'm trying to figure out just how bad it is!=/\=
=/\=There are no known contacts between the Federation and the sentients on Calican II    =/\= came the computer's report.

You don't use the little =/\= symbol to dictate your own character's speech into the communicator unless you are writing from someone else's perspective.  If you're confused, just ask, I'll be happy to hekp you format!

Also - please refrain from rainbow posts.  Don't use color to indicate who is writing; handle that with your narrative skills.  You don't buy the latest George R.R. Martin, then have five different font colors to indicate each character.  The author lets you know if it's John Snow, or Cersei, or Seamus the dirt farmer speaking through words.  Please do the same!

Yes, I know.  I'm prickly and picky and a big ol' meanie.    But please do try to follow these, and if you are confused at all, pleae reach out - I'll be happy to help!

oops

Sorry for the different colors, I forgot that was frowned upon.     

I've changed it all to one, but I can't seem to figure out the default color.  I will remember not to change them again in the future.

No worries.  Just a reminder for all - I've seen the colors and the confusion over the =/\=designations, all par for the course.

Yay

Cook's rotation list works just fine. I had the same trouble you had with such a small number of people, but I think it was doable somehow having three shifts rotating every 18 hours. BUT! Never mind that. Veen gave the task to Cook and she came through with a solid plan. We'll definitely go with that.  

And the table works well too.

Hold the phone...

Martin is actually going to publish another GOT book?  I figured that after what... 20 years and all the money HBO threw at him that he was done.  

I'm off topic.

I have given up hope of another book.  And I forgot what was happening, anyway.

Does that mean I have to re-read all of the great stuff... and the painful character deaths... and the betrayalals... and the 13 year old boy fantasies of women and sex?

I thought this was pretty cool even if it's missing a lot of stuff/

EDIT: Seems I spoke too soon. There's plenty of these to go through and some are far better than that one.

She got away with it... it was close though.
