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.
- Closing the Circle: The Inverse goes on a covert mission for Temporal Investigations. (Original)
- Background: During my couple of weeks of semi-hiatus, I posted little essays based on the background notes I use to keep the details straight. Here’s what I’ve posted so far:
- Starfleet Command Structure: Discusses civilian oversight of Starfleet command and how the fleet itself is organized, from top-level divisions down to individual ships and starbases.
- Starfleet Ranks and Roles: Lists enlisted, line officer, and flag officer ranks from lowest to highest, and discusses the shipboard and fleet roles commonly performed by each. Also gets into the internal organization of a Starfleet vessel.
- Warp and Transwarp: The history of warp drive, how it differs between the TOS and TNG eras, what “transwarp” actually means, and the three different scales used to measure warp speeds (TOS, TNG, and STO eras).
- The Federation Council: A little bit about Federation politics, briefly explaining the stances of the three major parties.
- The Alizar: Notes on Alizar biology, culture, and history.
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. But I’m on semi-hiatus, so there isn’t one.
I am still trying to get an RP-focused fleet together! Contact me in-game at Morwen@froborr if you’re interested.
