Status of the Mission

Posted on Sun Mar 20th, 2011 @ 4:47am by Commodore Samantha York

Hi, everyone!

This month has been interesting, to say the least. We have a lot of crew who have real life issues right now.

Damon and Alen are on ELOA.
Amy and Tony are on LOA.
Adam and Will have RL issues that aren't allowing them to tag in as often as they would like, but they haven't requested LOA yet.
I haven't heard from Bo in over a week. Hopefully he's okay.

I have included Damon's NPCs in two JPs in case he is able to post, but I'm not going to wait for him in case he can't. So, even though Allen Riley and Trent Kushner are included, they may not tag in.

So, where does that leave us? Slow. :)
I am more than willing to give them the time they need to deal with their real life issues, but I also don't want to stop everything and wait for them to return. That would not be fair to the rest of the crew and I know these people wouldn't want us to grind to a halt because of them.

So, this is where things stand. Ideas are always welcome.

Ensign Stran (Adam) noticed that the trees are behaving oddly. He will be getting "touchy feely" with a tree. He's going to do a mind meld and discover that the trees are sentient.

The science/tactical/ops team will find a way to break through the blockage and make contact with the away team -- briefly. Then there will be too much static until something is worked out with the trees.

I don't know what is going on with Leo and Erin or Daniel and Seren. The other two teams (Allen/Marek/Lizzie and Stran/Yvette/Jason will meet up and join forces.

The Marines are training on the holodeck in case they have to go down to the planet and do search and rescue.

This was originally meant to allow the crew some character development time on the planet, but with at least one person on each team away or slower than usual it's made things a little awkward.

No, I'm not going to end the mission prematurely because people are away. I would like to find some workarounds with NPCs and PCs who aren't busy so we can find things to do while we move forward at a slower pace.

So, if you have ideas, let me know.
We can send a team to the nearby planet to see if there's anything there to help (if people want to explore there). Or we can have people helping with the communications and probes.
Do you have an idea of how to work your PC or NPC into the plot? Send me a PM.
Everyone should have at least one JP now, so there should be something for everyone.

I appreciate all of you and know that this is a temporary setback. Life happens, so we're making other plans. :)
