Summary Award (From September 2014) Star Trek: Eternity

Excerpt from the summary:
After attempting to halt the progress of the Kazon, Anam is overtaken by them, before the door to the ready room is cut. Within, Amelia Moore suffers contractions of childbirth, hoping that a security field shall stop the invaders. On the surface, Logan discusses the capabilities of generation 7 nanoprobes, exposing concepts that give the visibly impaired Talla Vrenak and the unaffected Marisol Hocevar cause for more questions. In the scout vessel Ja’Narr, Colin Byrne, having devolved and freed himself of the borg skeletal structure, ponders his surroundings, and his last living companion.

The FSF Welcomes FSF Titan as its new Commanding Officer

The FSF welcomes FSF Titan as the new FSF CO. Below are some questions that were posed to FSF Titan by FSF Merlin.

FM – What drew you into simming and in what year?

FT – I got into simming in early 1996. I was all of the ripe old age of 13 and we had just gotten AOL and I started going to the community chat room called “The Bridge.” It was there that I was introduced to simming. People would come into the room and say “If you wanna sim then IM ME.” So whatever group got together at that time would go off to another room and sim and then once it was over then they went back about their business. Eventually a core group of us all kept finding ourselves together in these flash sim sessions so we eventually formed our first sim called the USS Venture and that is was eventually grew into my first sim group called the FSFF, Federation Special Forces Fleet.

A farewell from Admiral Jonathan Shuni

FSF XO, FSF Falk had a chance to talk with Shuni on his final words to the FSF group. It was also recorded and presented on FSF Radio 2

Here is an excerpt to that interview.
JS “Hello, my name is Luke, but you may actually know me better as Jonathan Shuni, or Admiral Shuni for short. I founded the FSF back in 1993 and it’s been a wild ride for the last 20 years. You may or may not know, but I announced my retirement last month. After being the head of FSF for so long and knowing my own personal commitments, I decided to pass the reigns to the next generation of leaders.”
