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.
- B’lii System Patrol: In which the New Dominion try to cut off communications with Cardassia and the Badlands, and the Phoenix responds.
- Bavar System Patrol: In which the newly upgraded Phoenix joins in a renewed Starfleet offensive against the True Way and Alpha Jem’Hadar.
- Aria System Patrol: In which an attempt at shore leave goes rapidly badly wrong.
- The Tribble with Klingons: In which Morwen is forced to interrupt the Second Great Tribble Hunt.
- Malon System Patrol: In which Morwen finds a True Way communications post and tries to take it out.
- Tear of the Prophets: In which Morwen travels to Cardassia Prime to pick up a recently rediscovered Bajoran Orb, and things get a bit weird.
- Elwing System Patrol: In which Morwen unwisely ignores the advice of her doctor.
- Reimers System Patrol: In which Morwen stumbles onto a Klingon fleet massing in a remote corner of Cardassian space.
- Crack in the Mirror: In which Deep Space Nine is occupied by duplicates of Starfleet officers. Again.
- Obrom System Patrol: In which the True Way attempt a multi-pronged attack.
- The New Link: In which the Phoenix goes looking for an Alpha Jem’Hadar stronghold, and finds something rather more.
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! Tentative premise is exploring the fact that we’ve pretty much all done the same story missions at different times, implying some weird temporal or parallel-universe shenanigans for us to investigate.
I have finished the game’s main story. I’m still finishing up the Rep missions, which will be inserted into the story as appropriate, but they’re well off in the distance. I think it’ll be okay timing-wise.
Next month the game is doing something called “Delta Recruits.” Based on what they’re saying, it sounds like it’s mostly a way for new players to catch up to established players quickly, but it’s also got a lot of incentive for people to make alts during that time. I’m probably going to make one per faction. Depending on what happens, I may or may not cross the Fed one with Morwen. The Romulan and Klingon alts I have… other plans for.
