Mission Update (December 2017)

Posted on Mon Jan 1, 2018 @ 2:29pm by Captain Edward Pearson

Happy New Year!

2017 has come and gone. Where did the time go?! So much has happened in the last year. I've been so busy with real life stuff and have had to make many changes. As you know, Karen and I have a daughter that was born in September. She's pretty much taken up our lives. Karen is going to be returning to work in February which means I'll be taking on the little one full time. Don't worry though, I still have time for Endeavour. I've even made certain of it! This is the only sim that I currently command. I've even postponed my studies until next September. There was just no way I'd be able to get three assignments done in the next four months. Oh and there's a chance that Karen and I will be moving house this year however when all of that happens we'll give you the details.

So what does 2018 hold in store for the sim? Well there are two things that are certain. One, we'll be wrapping up our current mission as soon as the two posts that are currently being worked on are complete. As per usual, please get to your tags as promptly as possible so that we can wrap things up. Second, Endeavour will be five years old in November. It has definitely been a long road getting from there to here. I'd like to put in some work again on the achievement system that has sort of slipped through the cracks. The other thing that I might do is put up a wiki. We'll see if time allows for that. Oh, is anyone planning to go to Destination Star Trek Birmingham in October? I was thinking of maybe having a little get together as I know several of our players are near or from the UK. Let me know so that we can start making plans.

Monthly Mission Recap
Whilst sifting through the information in the Livian archive, Lieutenant Hamilton Long and Ensign Reidar Nordheim found that the Romulans had, in the past, operated from a base eighteen light-years away. They also found more information about the ceremonial glaive ch’Ladiom. Ensign Nordheim proposed that they could maybe end the war by finding the two remaining pieces of the glaive and presenting it to the Romulans as a gift. The two senior officers continued to collect all the information overnight for their report to the Captain.

Crew Stuff
Karen is still not able to return full time (thanks to the little one) although we're going to be trying a few things to try and get our lives back to normal a bit. Other than her, Kaichi (Ishay) and Matt (Tanet) are both on LOA. Denver (Fisher) has recently returned from his LOA, and last, but not least, we welcome Jake as Ensign Huxley.

Yelchin / Mirror Endeavour
The majority of the Yelchin bios are complete. I think there's just Kaichi's character left but that's on pause because of her LOA. We need to get cracking on the Mirror Endeavour bios though. So if you're ready to put yours up, let me know and I'll turn on the position for you to create your character in.

That's about it. Let's have a really good year with alot of amazing stories and fun. I look forward to our continued adventures! Happy 2018, may you get all that you desire this year.
