Must I really continue seeing him?

If not careful, I may be inclined to write something about a nasty disease and very large boils.....

I've edited crew lists in the OP of the main thread.

Is everyone OK with this arrangement?

Also, this thread is moving so fast I can't keep up.

I've also edited the rules loam came up with into the OP of this working thread.

Any changes/additions, please let me know.

I have found the posting of "real" theresa or not... and then under the influence of QA, but - I still couldn't find a complete Theresa discussion.

So..... whenever someone gets the chance, just let me know the jest of what you want in a theme of Theresa from me... and I will put something together!


Oh, loam, no prob with the one liner taking care of talking to the rebel.

If worse comes to worst I'll lend you my namesake. No teeth will make 'stud' loam much less desirable... that or just contract an STD, that should take care of it.

I originally used Theresa as an old flame of Luder's from his days at the academy - who used to keep on and off contact with him throughout their respective careers. I was looking at her as being an element of drama when the Penelope arrived at Alpha Cent. and saw that it was her ship that had gone rogue.

As with collaborative fiction - the excellent story twists produced by my shipmates made her end up as an intruder on the vessel - during our entire 'mind control' incident.

Right now, they are on the verge of arresting her - and neno wanted to know if I wanted her to be real or be something else.

I just thought it would be a very interesting twist if somehow, she was under your control - could make for an interesting story arc. But it's up to you.

Studious is worried about firings with the Tribunal. After all everyone else was being controlled but he was not.

I've decided to actually work the badges into the story, new ID badges that identify and will....hopefully....prevent friendly fire. Maybe we could work something in about the badges "watching us." Reporting our actions back to command, Big Brother style.

The Admiral's in the Tribunal are all the ones previously mentioned in the Story thread.

Rear Admiral Johnathan "Hellcious" Hollingsworth III, was the Admiral who Fooks said owed him one. I assume therefore that he is going to be torn up about the loss of Fooks, and angry at Neno.

Admiral Stevenson, was mentioned by John Q. Maybe John Q gets transferred so Stevenson won't be at the next tribunal guy angry at whoever killed John Q. Just a thought.

Admiral James Gordon, angry at mf_luder for disobeying orders and mad at Seeker for the attack.

I think a tribunal is a good idea it should prevent us from seeming to have that unusual immunity that all main sci-fi characters seem to get.

I like the idea of having Theresea under QA's control. Maybe the counter acting signal Seeker set up only blocks new mind control signals. Since Theresa was the only one under control when the signal was put in place everyone else is safe.

Don't forget my friend....

Someone will be mad at you too for drawing a weapon on a fellow star fleet officer.

You aren't immune either.

I think there is something very logical about space whales and navigation.

Just posted nenothtu's discovery of Theresa. Of course, HE doesn't know the intruder was Theresa, or even that the intruder was female. All he knows is that he's suddenly got 2 captains, one non-responsive.

Now we can go before the Courts-Martial and take our beatings like MEN.

The thought of getting to chase someone down the hall was just too much.

Now instead of being grumpy I'm becoming whimsical.

(whimsy - A whim, or quaint and fanciful idea)

Oh Cane-Fu is real by the way

That was hilarious.

He had me visualizing House on a stretcher, rolling down a hall for some reason. Too funny guys - too funny.

I just added some very soap-opera-esque (that a word?) drama. I just kept hearing in my head the whole time...

duh duh DUH!

Sorry... but the 'invisible thread' idea just can't happen. Nice idea, though, I'll admit.

I had a sneaking feeling we'd be all neeked and visible - but that's ok!

I can just me sneakier than a bean and keep the juicy stuff to U2U!

Couldn't hurt to try!

Mine looks very similar, although I have thrown in a post or two elsewhere just for some spice. I've seen so many thread titles that I hover over and then just click MyATS and see if anyone has posted anything new here. You guys are my favouritest.

On a completely unrelated topic I must say a nice Rigellian ale on a Friday after a long shift at the command post hits the spot very nicely. Especially at The Swamp. (That's the name I vote for CM!)

I knew you would like that one.

Goodnight all!

Is there a way to read Cadbury's posts without pdf?

Here ya go - I had this for Whisper so I'll just stick it here.

Vagueness of a particular objective. That, amongst other concerns, was the cause of the foul mood.
A mission? A mission to install a mission? What? A Captain–whom we shall call 'Cadbury'–knew
not, as his final preparations were undertaken to undock from the Regellian out base in Orion's
Nebula and depart aboard the Yydryl. A new crew awaited, encased safely inside the hull of this
newly constructed and more than sufficiently armed and manoeuvrable ship of the line. A
predominantly Regellian ship of the vast, expansionary Orion Alliance... it would also have speed.
“Such short notice...”
And words equatable only in part to 'Swine' or 'Bastard' were muttered through sharp fang in the
general direction of a Supreme Commander, despite its non-presence.
A short while ago in most perceptions of the passing of “time,” it had been threatened by
Commander Zogby-Poll that Captain Cadbury be eaten by creatures of a larger and more predatory
size than he, for the near ruination of certain diplomatic relations in and around the vicinity of
Betelgeuse during an unauthorised excursion to there. For the mission that now lay ahead, it had
been mandated clearly to not make such detours again, or suffer directly the consequences of
'extreme indiscretion.'
“Why, I ought to sodding well abrogate! Casus Belli! I ought to f...” his communicator cut him
off mid-sentence with sounds, reporting to him of a tragedy aboard the Yydryl. New crew members
already aboard, Spec-Ops technician Whisper67, Empathic Chief Medical Officer Antar, and
Navigation Officer Sky(floating) have discovered the body of their Communications Officer, who
has apparently zapped himself in the cranial mass. “What? Another suicide? Are you sure?” It
would be the 27,000th reported across the Orion Alliance in the spacing of one Regellian
“Yes, Captain. He's evaporated himself with a standard issue Hyper-Vortex Proton Disintegrator
in a small library in his quarters. There is not much of a remainder for Antar to autopsy, but the
general consensus among us so far is that this is a suicide. We're almost certain that it is.” informed
Skyfloating. “He was the first on board and we have not been able to find a trace of any assailant
through any available detection apparatus, only traces Visible_Villain left before he took his own
life.” Sky's accent was carefully attenuated so the 70% Regellian Captain could properly understand
his dialect, which was similar in nature but also very different at times.
“Thank you. I trust your judgement. Hold all non-crucial investigation until the rest of the crew
is aboard. I'll be joining you all shortly.”
Would the death of a crewman before even undocking cause to further ill-omen this already far
too egregious mission? he wondered to himself. And then he wandered back to his original
“You've been assigned a new crew since most of your last were eaten as punishment for your
own mistakes. Prepare. Board. Undock, then await further instruction” is all command had told him.
But they forgot to say “And brace yourselves!”

We've talked about droids that take care of the Ship needs, and don't forget my little rug friend...

Since the Ship is *alive* I thought the crew and a few NPS's was pretty much it?

I've based the majority of my posts on that so it's going to be tough to go back and edit...

Help me here...


Oh, and having the Whales as navigators is a AWESOME idea!
