We've Moved!

*dusts off the Announcements forum* *chokes on dust* Ahem. Well, it looks like this old place just resurfaced from the shallow grave it was put into eighteen months ago by a SQL table crash. :) In the interim, the denizens of TerranBBS have moved to a new board, kindly hosted by Huggle , at http://w...

Re: The Black Steel RP. Rated R.

"Aye, Captain," Akraya nodded, already planning how to store the contents of the buoy securely. She glanced at Pedras, who led the way from the mess hall in the direction of his quarters, where he'd kept the device for safe-keeping. Desuko followed, as she'd need Pedras to help her set up the commun...

Hyperlight 3 - The Wisdom of Ages Past

With Earth on the verge of discovering hyperlight, Captain Hinsharis of the AEV Umbra elects to accelerate her ship's investigation into the presence of Selene's first hyperlight vessel, Explorer One , in Earth's solar system two millennia ago. The base her crew uncovered two months ago in Canterbur...

Re: Post Every Time You Enter #3

Oh yeah, it's Monday... :p With, apparently, a vengeance.

Got into work to find that Friday's deployment went wrong... bringing down our entire reporting environment. Fortunately we took a backup just beforehand so we can roll back and re-do.

Desuko nodded. "We could organise the display directly via Senator Kayree - she's been looking for a way to cement Alliance-Kaltor relations," she suggested. "She doesn't need to know the details of the plan, just that I had the chance to perform here on Quaylar Four, it was popular, and I think we ...

Re: Post Every Time You Enter #3

Possibly. Here's the news story from our local paper.

The 30-45mins was for people at the front of the train, where they could disembark onto the platform. At the back... I think I was disembarking at around 9:00, so a bit more than an hour. (I was in the rearmost carriage.)

Re: Post Every Time You Enter #3

I believe so. The driver said someone had "jumped", rather than "fallen".

The girl was still alive but trapped when emergency crews arrived, I haven't heard any other details.

Re: Post Every Time You Enter #3

Morning all. On my way to work but someone jumped in front of the train so we're going nowhere. Hope they're OK, suspect not. :(


Edit: took 90min to get us off the train. From what I could figure out it was a schoolgirl.

Re: The Black Steel RP. Rated R.

"You are most welcome, Captain, Doctor," Pedras answered, bowing his head to them briefly. He didn't elaborate on his reasoning - that they'd need something to show the Theirrins to prove they were who they said they were, and this was the swiftest method he could think of to obtain something. He su...

Re: The Black Steel RP. Rated R.

Akraya blinked. She knew very little of the Prakeshi as a species, and much less of their culture, but it sounded like he was about to offer his civilisation's one chance at finding their lost Worldship, whatever that meant. Hopefully the crew would be able to get the device back, but there was no g...

"Separating prior to landing would be less of a logistical challenge," Pedras opined. "Prakeshi courier companies are known to take on non-Prakeshi staff regularly, so that's not a big problem. We'll possibly be asked to provide evidence of the transfer, but I may have something that can help with t...

Re: The Black Steel RP. Rated R.

Desuko nodded at the captain's suggestion; she had to admit, a public display would be better. She glanced at Akraya, certain her sister would still be upset with the idea of her putting herself even at minimal risk. "Actually, having Desuko's team give a public display gives Firestorm a good reason...

"We could always use my shuttle, either as a distraction or as a main attack vector," Pedras offered. "It's not as good as the Firestorm, but it can still move quite nimbly if it has to."

Desuko was a little uncomfortable accepting monetary compensation, since she hadn't gone through her Long Flight, but given the situation, she nodded her acceptance. "Thank you, Captain." She glanced around, saw that most of the primary crew had finished their meals, and started clearing up. Fortuna...

Desuko only needed a quick glance at Akraya to see her sister would prefer her to stay where the crew could keep her safe. She had to admit, the way they were talking, the Firestorm sounded safer than Kaltor, even if they were heading into battle. "I'd be happy to help in the kitchen - all my family...
