! It is good to see new members bonding, too. Check out the Redshirt Lounge as soon as you are able. It is a good place to get to know each other better.
Just a note for all newbies: The Lounges are a good place for fun, games and fellowship with people of similar rank (time aboard & post count). Look for one and join in. As you move up in rank, you gain access to the appropriate lounge [Captain's Lounge, Fleet Captain's Lounge, etc.].
