Ok.....

Who can come up with a good start to a simming thread here?
Don't bother god-modding it....i'll just start a new thread elsewhere!

:p

Or...if we have no ideas........


~Starfleet Academy~

Hmmmmm......first lectures were always a nightmare....whether one was in engineering class, medic school, pretending you were Einstein in the science department...or just a lowly administration clerk (think Lucy! )

......................


OOC- So many people think they have excellent simming skills, including me! So let's get to it...

the academy, his very first day at the academy was such a long time ago for Captain Gibson, yet at times it felt like just yesterday

espeically today when he was given a new command and a new crew, fresh from the academy
the ship, the USS Prestige, was a new as the academy graduates that manned it, it was a Polaris Class starship, inbetween the sizes of an Intrepid and Sovereign class, with the most sophisticated scientific equipment to date, but still with enough armaments to defend it's self if and when the need were to arise

Captain Gibson sat in his ready room waiting for their first mission order from Starfleet, wondering if this inexperience crew would be up to the task, whatever it may be


OOC: here's something right up the alley Shuttle's been asking for, fresh from the academy crew, new ship geared primarily towards exploration first, etc.. :D

~Quarters~

Sharing with 2 others, wasn't her idea of fun....but it had happened throughout the her academy days..surely she could last a few more years until promotion!

Ensign Anna Clarke waited for the next person to walk through that door and no doubt...have some impression on her life...

OOC: Alright...maybe its time for me to prove Shuttle wrong.

BIC:

Lazerus Jameson III, a recent Academy graduate strides into the Engine Room of the Prestige. Locating the most senior officer, a LtC, likely the CENG, he approaches and snaps into a perfect parade ground salute. "Ensign Jameson reporting SIR!" He had a lot to live up to carrying the name of a very skilled engineer who was remembered to this day, despite having been dead for many many years, was not an easy task for an ensign aboard a new starship.

It helped that he had inherited his great grandfather's talent with technical work and he had been helping his father work on flitters from the time he was old enough to pick up a wrench.

Ensign Rohfistan ch'Shansil mindlessly walked the corridors of the USS Prestige, his eyes glued to the PADD in front of him. Rohf had been and always would be a die hard procrastinator and now was one of those times when he really wished he wasn't. Already he had bumped into others in the corridors, while tyring to navigate his way from Astrometrics to the nearest turbolift to the Infirmary and finally to the bridge.

The bridge of the Polaris class ship was medium sized not as large as the one aboard the USS Atlirith-B, a Nebula-class starship that literally made the Prestige seem nothing more than a runabout, the place where he had served his Cadet Observation. The turbolift doors soon parted to admit Rofh to the bridge which he quickly scanned and soon spotted a Commander in Science teal bent over her console, Rofh amde his way over to her and began to introduce himself.

=/\= Commander Harris, please report to the ready room =/\=
Captain Gibson said tapping his commbadge, a few moments later Harris entered the ready room, he was surprised to see his first officer in a teal science uniform instead of a red command uniform, he motioned for her to sit before picking up the PADD infront of him
"So, tell me Commander, what do you think of the ship and crew?"

"The Prestige's sensor arrays are second to none, and I'm extremely impressed by her state of the art science labs, I just wish her maximum warp speed was higher than 9.8, and if Ensign Rohfistan ch'Shansil is any indication of the quality of the academy graduates we've been assigned I believe we have a very fine crew" Commander Harris replied

"so you've had a chance to speak to a few members of our newly graduated crew? I've only had the pleasure of speaking with the chief engineer so far, and it would seem that aside from his position none of the other bridge positions have been assigned yet, and I have to add I'm surprised to see my first officer in a science uniform" Gibson said getting up and walking to the replicator on the nearby wall "would you like anything commander?"

"no thank you Captain, and from what my orders from starfleet said when I was assigned this post I was assigned as the first officer and the chief science officer, I could change into a command uniform is you'd like Sir, also I'm sure that the assignment of bridge positions is entirely up to you, I could create a list of the most qualified officers for each position if you'd like, also may I ask when we're to depart on our first mission Sir?" Harris said leaning forward intently

Captain Gibson walked back to his desk from the replicator "I would appreciate the list Commander, and feel free to keep the science uniform, as to our first mission, Outpost 459 near the Neutral zone has detected an unusual temperal annomaly and Starfleet would like us to check it out, we'll be getting underway in 14 hours"

"aye Sir" Commander Harris replied as she got up and headed to the door

OOC: so is the senior staff going to be NPCed? just trying to make sure everyone's thinking along the same lines

OOC: I left it neutral so that either the senior staff/normal bridge crew could be NPCed or it could be made up from everyone's characters with only the Science officer and Chief Engineer appearently filled by someone already

Anna walked purposely to her 'office'....she had already seen it earlier when she arrived, and to be honest, she was bored stiff! May as well have a peek now as to what work awaited her....

Sitting down, there was a note from the Captain...along with a full list of instructions...

Best get to it then.....

I'd like to assume Tactical - will submit another post when not at work, as don't have the time to do so from here.

Is that wise folks, I mean with Shuttle doing the guns we wont be able to hit the broad side of a barn and when we do it won't even scorch the paint.

Nah - have plenty of experience in tactical. Just because the sims that I participated in were primarily exploration-themed doesn't mean that we didn't have our ship get into trouble. I just preferred it when the ship we utilised was tactically outclassed - made the battles more interesting in my opinion, and our members submitted some really interesting posts, some based on their character's NOT being convinced that the ship would emerge victorious, as a result.

hmm well alright. But umm shouldnt we get something of an idea of what this ship is? I mean Ive never heard of a Polaris class, maybe under a different name.

From the description that Galaxyclass posted, it sounds a little like something in the size-range of an Akira class, with a mission profile similar to that of a Nova-class.

I mean visually, like as in an image. You know, like is it sort of compact like the Nebula or just massive and huge like the Galaxy, sleek like the Sovereign or sort of bulky and more practical like the Constitution.

blend a Sovereign and an Intrepid basically, hence it's size is inbetween the two exactly, 20 decks (the Sov has 24, Voy has 15) 10 type X phaser arrays (the Sov has type XII and I think the Galaxy type X, so after the Sov's arrays X would seem not so strong yet stronger than an intrepid) 3 torpedo launchers, two fore, one burst fire aft (not sure if it has Quantums or not, I don't want to make it super formitable in battle) it has a just slightly elliptical saucer, not as elliptical as the Galaxys, it has shorter Nacelle struts than the Sov, but a slightly wider hull, and it's nacelles are shorter than a Sov's, kind of a cross in look between at Galaxy/Nebula and an Intrepid.. just longer
basically it has enough weapons to likely fair well in a ship to ship combat situation, but it's main focus is exploration
it's like the new Obeth class, tons of science geared equipment, but since we all know Obeth's get their ass handed to them quite readily starfleet gave the Polaris class some teeth, just not the sharpest ones

if anyone want to tone down any of the specs make it so

Captain Gibson was going over the list of crew members that Commander Harris had complied for him, he grinned when he found Ensign Rohfistan ch'Shansil placed at the top of the list for the Ops position
amoung other various names were Ensigns Lazerus Jameson III, Kovek, and Anna Clarke to name a few

of all the candidates only Tactical had been decided in the Captain's mind, with the Chief Security officer position going to Ensign Kovek, he needed to make up his mind, there were only 8 hours left before the Prestige was to depart on her first mission and he he needed to make his decisions with enough time to hold a meeting with the newly appointed bridge officers and allow them an hour or two to get situated

Ops he was debating between Ensign ch'Shansil, and Jameson
though Jameson's engineering background would make either Ops or Conn a good fit Ensign ch'Shansil's affinity for Astrometrics would come in very handy for a Conn officer position, but Ops required a science background too in Captain Gibson's mind.
he didn't even want to start thinking about the Chief Medical officer position

he needed a change of scenery, Captain Gibson headed to the Turbolift "Deck 8" he called out to the computer after he entered, upon exiting the turbolift on deck 8 he proceeded to room 1 forward section of Deck 8 where the crew lounge was located, as he headed to the bar he noticed Commander Harris already there "You're just the person I was looking for" he called out to her smiling pleasently

"Hello Captain Gibson, what can I help you with?" Commander Harris replied

Captain Gibson laughed "we're sitting at a bar, Please, call me Tomas"

Sarah Harris smiled "only if you call me Sarah and not Commander Harris, now what was it you were having trouble with?"

"This" Tomas Gibson slide the PADD he was holding across the bar "I filled the Chief Security officer slot, but I'm having a heck of the time filling the others, especially the Ops and Conn positions"

-----------------------------------

OOC: Conn= Flight Controller or the Helm officer, I tend to use the "Conn" term since the station is labeled that in all TNG and post TNG shows
and I didn't want to blindly assign people positions yet I still wanted to keep the simm moving along, so I figure you guys can hint at what you want that's left in your posts
Anna apparently already has an office, so I was think CMO perhaps? otherwise I guess the CMO could be NPCed and Anna could be incharge of one of the labs or something, like I said just hint at what you guys want in your next posts

OOC: Lucy, the reference she made at the beginning is a yeoman on another SIMM so I would presume Anna is also the Captain's Yeoman....
----------
When Rofh's superior, Commander Harris, entered the Captain's Ready Room he was left with the Science Console. It wasn't like he didn't trust himself to run the console, it was just he hadn't exactly majored in Science. Sure he had minored in astrphysics but his real passion laid in Operations, just like his thavan Captain Vanithelis th'Shansil.
