Item #1: tags - I think this would be a GREAT way to help readers keep up. I must confess I'm not all that comfortable with having to put them in
each post, but I'm willing to bet I can get used to it in short order. Probably what I'll do is save the code for it to a text file, then copy and
paste for every post, instead of hunt it down and take it from there. That way, all I have to do is get it right ONCE, and my machine takes it from
Both crews have a Weapons Control Officer, so you might want to consider making that tag "permanent". It's not a unique position to either vessel.
Both crews also APPEAR to have a stowaway, but ours doesn't have a writer for it, and that position could just drop off into the ether.
Item # 2: For the folks dropping out, I've already read some of your writing, and am convinced, beyond question, that you can too do it! I had my
moment, too, but I'm like a bulldog. Hard for me to just throw in the towel. Everyone has been great about understanding the need for a time-out here

grab a beer (or whatever) for a time-out. Well keep your seats warm.
Specific to QA, for somebody that "can't write sci-fi", you've been doing a hell of a job so far! I can't find any post that has detracted from
the story, only added to it (and kept us on our toes, too
) See above advice.
I'm off to the story thread now, to see what fate has dropped on me today.
