rules take effect 2/21/10)
All in all, we have a great
attendance record. I would like to request that if you know for sure, or even
have a suspicion that you will not be here, please contact someone. Call them
to relay the message, sign onto the Cortana website, send a personal email. Somehow,
as soon as you know or think you will miss, let me know. I plan storylines based
on who will be here; if you aren't going to be here, I can work around that.
you miss a SIM, and don't let someone know beforehand, or a member of the command
crew within 24 hours afterwords, you will receive an unexcused. Three unexcused
in six months, and disciplinary action will be taken.
First time: A verbal
Second time: A second verbal warning
Third time: An In Character
Fourth (and last time): Being removed from the sim
you request to be excused, just a short explanation is all that is needed. ie:
I will not be at the sim on Sunday, I have something to do with my family. ie:
I have to work. ie: I am sick.
To be counted as attending the sim, you must
attend at least 30 mins. This is 50%. So if you are late, or have to leave early,
try to be there for at least 30 mins.
Last, but not least. We understand
that sometimes you have no way of knowing if your cable/internet service will
go down and keep you offline. If this is the problem, this counts as an excused
absence. You cannot control things such as this.
PARTICIPATION IN LOGGING:
are an IRC sim and logging is optional...sort of. If someone sends you a log and
you don't wish to participate, please notify them and let them know this. Don't
leave them hanging, wondering what is happening. If I tell a particular set or
dept to log, I expect a log. If you don't like someone, too bad. Get over it and
log. I am not asking you to be their best friend, I am telling you, as the Captain,
that in order for a section of storyline to be done, YOU HAVE TO LOG. If you as
a group or dept prefer to meet and do it in real time, so be it. Otherwise, you
have one week to finish the log.
New Rule: You MUST log with each person
in the sim at least once every six months. It can be a simple duty log, an R&R
log, or something else. If you make an attempt to log, and you get no answer,
contact me and I will either excuse it, or take care of it.
order to participate in a sim, you MUST take the Basic Course and preferably the
course related to your department. Any other courses are at your discretion. If
you have a character, or another name on another sim, make sure you let us know
when you take a course, and you will get credit for the course. Vice versa, when
you take a course thru us, you can let them know and you will get credit.
you are uncertain of something, ask a member of the command crew. If they don't
have an answer immediately, they will find out for you.
OF THE WEEK:
Chardan (as the evil ghost pirate): "Violence lacks a touch of creativity."
- By Talari
Cortana is trying to catch up with the Romulan ship that has the ghost pirates.
(Our Captain, CEO, AEO, and others. See below. )
SICK BAY: Medical personnel
were attending to the less seriously injured, and waiting for test results. Jora
was the most urgent at the time and Kosuke was seeing to her, making sure she
was fine. Talari was attacking a pile of PADDs, updating medical records.
SECURITY: O'Brien went to see the Romulan Capt down in the brig. She discusses
the fact that the Capt took over their ship and why. The Romulan Capt believes
it was planned and nothing O'Brien says will change his mind. Beckerson expresses
her concerns about the Romulan to O'Brien. The Romulan Capt is released and Beckerson
accompanies them on a walk from the Brig.
BRIDGE: Lt.Cmdr Draven and Ens
Jones (NPC) found the warp trail of the Romulan ship and started to trail it.
It was faint, the ship was cloaked, but it was a start.
SIM LOG 241002.21
BRINING EVERYONE CURRENT IN THE STORYLINE
the Cortana departed from DS9 on a routine mission to take cargo containers full
of supplies to a new colony outpost and escort Ambassador Green and her entourage
to meet up with the Romulan delegation to help for negotiations between the Klingon
and Romulan Empires.
Just after the Cortana left dock at DS9 when a crewman
in Cargo Bay 4 heard odd noises and came to find Chief Bjornson went to check
it out. Spirit beings were hitchhiking in the containers
and one by one
they took over 333 members of the Cortana Crew
including Captain Chardan,
Cmdr Moore, Lt Lishan, and Cmdr Bjornson. The ghost pirates gained the knowledge
their host bodies had, and shut down life support to incapacitate the crew and
civilians on board they couldn't take over. While the 'pirates' celebrated having
bodies and all the sensations that go with them
they plotted their next move.
started passing out from lack of oxygen all over the ship including sick bay where
the quick thinking Dr Kosuke grabbed a re-breather, and then gave one to Dr. Williamson
Williamson took care of the patients, getting masks to them. And Dr. Kosuke located
O'Brien and Ambassador Green in the turbo lift she brought them masks. Stormy
tried to override the commands given to Cortie to turn life support on to no avail.
Back to sick bay they went. Time to move the patients and themselves to where
whomever was in charge of the ship would not see them
they got rid of com
badges and Stormy ordered the computer to delete their life signs.
the medical staff and patients moved through the Jeffries tubes towards the Gym
where they could set up another temporary sick bay, the Pirates continued their
take over of the ship, beamed the rest of the crew to a near by Class K(?) planet.
The Romulans arrived to escort the Ambassador to the Meeting and the Pirates took
over their ship and put them in the Cortana's brig ( for more story read the past
logs). Then the Pirates shut down Cortie and began a destruct sequence. Racing
against time and uncertain of what obstacles faced them Draven and O'Brien raced
to Engineering where they could manually shut down the Self-destruct sequence.
The Pirates set sail on the Romulan vessel locating their first target
- a Ferengi Freighter.
