Captain’s Log, Weekly Digest 9

The Kickstarter‘s at $446! Thank you all so much! We’re nearly halfway, let’s see if we can push past that mark!

A summary of the past week of posts to my in-character Star Trek Online Tumblr, chronicling the adventures of E.N. Morwen, a science-loving and thoughtful young woman trapped in a galaxy of warring space giants.

  • The Vault: In which, every time Morwen is about to get out, Starfleet drags her back in.
  • [Promotion]: Rear Admiral, Lower Half: In which Morwen crews the Phoenix with faces old and new.
  • Mine Enemy: In which Morwen discovers more than one dark secret on a mining planet, and makes a new friend.
  • Frozen: In which Obisek turns out to be surprisingly decent and T’Nae somewhat less surprisingly not.
  • Hfifar System Patrol: In which Morwen works out her frustrations and protects some scientists.
  • [Promotion]: Rear Admiral, Upper Half: In which Morwen’s rapid rise through the ranks is more transparently politically motivated than ever.

As the flag officer of a fleet or tactical group, Starfleet regulations also require Morwen to provide a Fleet Status Report briefly summarizing the current status and mission of all ships under her command, every Stardate that’s a multiple of 10.

Also, I am recruiting to found a new fleet (the STO equivalent to a guild), dedicated to roleplay and crossovers between people’s characters. Any Fed-aligned roleplayers welcome!

(Are people enjoying these? Anything you’d like to see more of? Less of?)

  1. Well, I like ’em enough to start playing the game because of ’em.

    Something that occurs to me. Diegetically, Morwen publishes the logs on Alizar’s network. Do they appear on Alizar just as they do on tumblr? It seems likely to me that some things would be different – for example, the logs regarding the Devidian episodes amount to a public confession to major time crimes.

    It seems likely to me that Drake would quietly arrange for the publicly viewable versions of those logs to be consistent with the comet’s destruction being part of the original timeline. If nothing like that happened, I would expect some consequence from the disclosure.
