Summary Winner January 2015 – Mass Effect: Paradise Lost

The Asari team digs into the stations computer system, attempting to send a message. “We’ve found more than we expected, we’ll need a bigger ship!” that’s the good news. The encrypted transmission also contains the bad news, “The station is crawling with Cerberus troops” so much for being abandoned. The team manages to bring the internal sensors online to track the Cerberus troops, and discover that there are only about 20 on board… and 6 of them are heading right towards the other half of their team.

Down in the lower levels of the station, the Krogan / Human team had just stumbled into a room full of crates, some of which contained combat mechs. Something that might have helped the previous occupants retain possession of their station, had they been activated. Their search was cut short however as a sniper who’d been hidden in the rafters opened fire. The team dove for cover, and had just started the process of flushing him from his perch when the message came in that 6 more enemy troops we’re headed right for them. That left them very limited time to deal with this new threat. The problem with scoped weapons is that it narrows your field of view, thus leaving the Krogan, Urdnot Chatok a chance to get onto the catwalk. Going into a full charge, the 800 pound Krogan slammed into the Sniper, sending him sprawling down to the floor below, where Patrick was able to easily finish him off. All that was left was to prepare for the incoming enemy team…

Back home, the rest of the team works diligently to bring the new power core online. Working together, they managed to dampen ambient vibrations that the core was causing, discover that the station wouldn’t be able to handle the core at full power, and figured out where to throttle it at, and finally start to power it up. 5%… 10… 15… 20… so far so good.

Summary Award (For August 2014) Starbase 35

Excerpt from the summary:
Starbase 35 is anything but your typical startbase. This is where those that have been deemed to difficult have been sent. In the more recent past, things are not what they seem to be at all on the station. George Williams, the irascible barkeep, has yet another secret. It would seem that he is Commander JoAnne Ross’ father. In some strange way that has yet to become clear, he is there to over see what happens to Ross and Merlin and the rest of the souls on the station. . .

Sim of the Month (for May 2014): Star Trek: Andromeda
Community Award: Mass Effect: Paradise Lost
Fleet Activity Award: Delta Fleet
Summary Award (for March 2014): Star Trek: Eternity

Excerpt from the Summary:

As Hope nears launch, Ens. Farooqi finds time for a meal in the mess. Cdr. Vreenak and Lt. Ambrose consider the Chronitin bridge, as both make preparations for liftoff. Cdr. Byrne has an uneasy conversation with Dr. Reese, who finds some relief in a medical call from Lt. Halvorsson in the Armory. Lt. Scott arrives on the bridge just before launch, as does Capt. Barlow, who gives the order. Lt. Hocevar ponders a favor to ask of Cdr. Vreenak as she oversees Engineering’s support of the ship. Hope lifts off, smoothly breaking orbit, before docking firmly to the side of the carrier “Rim.” Now, as both ships move as one at impulse speed, the repairs can begin in earnest.

Hope, having safely departed the planet under the hand of Ens. Farooqi, now rests, docked alongside the carrier Rim, leader of the patchwork Hirogen fleet. Engineering matters rise to the forefront with the removal of the damaged strut and footpad for recasting. Once the job is done, Lt. Hocevar meets with Lt’s Scott and Halvorsson to discuss security’s needs. In the void, Gabriel “Matrix” Logan practices sword proficiency as he ponders the cost of his aspirations, versus the destruction in his brother’s wake. Lt. Scott considers his station in life versus those of his parents. With counsel by the unseen King Calmest, he successfully marshals his department. Lt. Ambrose finds irritation with Lt. Hocevar, and engineers in general, as he manages Ops. Cdr. Vreenak maintains his position on the bridge, as his mind puts itself toward the detailed review ahead. Captain Barlow holds the command chair, experiencing tiredness, yet driven by an unrelenting need to reclaim Eternity, one way, or another.

February 2014 Community Awards

Congratulations to the following winners of the February 2014 Community Awards, our first monthly awards of the year!

Sim of the Month (for March 2014): Torchwood: United Front
Community Award: USS Ghost Rider
Fleet Activity Award: Delta Fleet
Summary Award (for January 2014): Star Trek Eternity

Excerpt from the Summary:

Escorted by Thelon DeKinder, Amelia Moore exits the Elven kingdom of Fi. Once her crashed shuttle, still cloaked in the guise of a dead wyvern, is discovered, the pair settle in for the night with a fire and game to roast. The fire’s light draws in Cdr. Vreenak and his away team, who find themselves challenged by DeKinder. Conversation begins, and peace is the mutual objective. Aboard Hope, Cdr. Byrne has a counseling session with Janelle James. Upon returning to the bridge, they find the ship ringed by a massive army. Their king, Calmest, issues a greeting and a wish for peaceable interaction. Byrne and James follow Capt. Barlow onto the field to meet with the king and his men.

Negotiations are begun on two fronts. Before Hope’s fierce countenance, King Calmest presents a serene image to Capt. Rick Barlow, as Janelle James and Colin Byrne look on. In the depth of the wood, Anam Farooqi, Gabriel Logan, Talla Vreenak, and Marisol Hocevar join with Thelon DeKinder and Amelia Moore. In the fire’s glow, the conversation quickly moves to the next phase of their journey, crossing the Blighted grounds to locate the mysterious Source.

On the plain, Calmest asserts his power, agreeing to meet with the Dragon in the company of Cns. James. Capt. Barlow is to remain behind, hostage, to assure the king’s safe return. A nervous archer sets off a domino effect, sending the Reptilian Colin fleeing for his life. He travels a great distance to evade the army’s pursuit, before hunkering down for the night. In the wood, the meting by the fire takes a new sense, as the away team’s guide, a dwarf known as “Hammer,” rudely presents himself.

Congratulations to the following winners of the December 2013 Community Awards!

Sim of the Month (for January 2014): USS John C. Stennis
Community Award: USS Ghost Rider
Fleet Activity Award: Delta Fleet
Summary Award: (for November 2013) USS Ghost Rider

Excerpt from the Summary:
Amidst the quiet on the Ghost Rider, tension still remains constant. Things in space have calmed down, but the battle still rages on the surface. But are things as safe in space as it seems? The ships A.I. works tirelessly trying to identify something at the extreme edge of sensor range… it was too big to be a ship… but the sensor resolution, or lack thereof, wasn’t allowing her to see what it was… Inspiration… what if it wasn’t a single object, but multiple objects flying close together… she compared parts of the edges to known Terran ship profiles, and quickly began to spot identifiable areas. It was an Armada… soon a second group appeared… then another… The counter-attack was coming…
