    Yeah, well, I made this crew as a "what if Star Trek had been an Andorian show?".
    One of them is an Android, though. ;)

    An Andorian Android? Neat.

    I figured you liked them since they were blue. "Not TARDIS blue, but close enough." ;)

    I went with more of a early TNG/DS9 feel for the Odyssey uniform..

    Can we send fleet invites to our own toons? (If, I suppose, we have the right to do fleet invites.)

    Hi, everyone.
    I am planning to run an Poker evening in the best tradition of the TNG Bridge Crew.
    How is the interest there?

    Obviously the game doesn't have an in-game poker apllication and likely never will, so we will have to use an external program to deal the actual cards.

    But I imagine it like this.

    We meet in the lounge of a ship or the fleet base and have a good time playing "cards" with chat.
    So we don't have to minimize thegame all the time the best way would be to use a poker app on mobile devices and ideally a voice chat application would be optional.

    There are different poker apps available, depending on what platform the players can use.

    Rules would be as follows:

    Texas Hold'em

    1,000,000 EC buy in
    300,000 EC re-buy in

    so, if we get 5 players together for this the pot would be 5,000,000 EC at least and up to 6,200,000 if 4 player re-buy in.

    Winner takes half the pot.
    2nd gets half of the remaining pot
    3rd gets half of the remaining remaining pot
    ...
    final 2 players split the rest between themselves 50/50.

    Dixie Flatline - Just getting setup again after a move, but usually 11pm-ish Central European Time.

    Timelord - Did they fix the voice chat in the game? I use Ventrilo with some of my other connections.

    Anyone from the fleet planning on attending Destination Star Trek: Frankfurt, Germany? (Besides me...)

    Probably not. I plan to attend the Fedcon in Düsseldof, though.

    Anyone else up for that?

    I would love a meet-up at such an event.

    Far too distant for me to travel to, unfortunately.

    KDF Communications Array II upgrade is underway! Next up at the starbase is the upgrade to Tier II for the Industrial Fabricator. Then personnel contacts for science and engineering divisions (common doffs).

    Dilithium mine is closing in on being able to upgrade the two tracks, then the mine, to Tier 1. This is still the main focus so the discounts will come into play, should anyone be logging in to their KDF characters.

    Happy Canadian Thanksgiving! Qapla!

    I've tried to attend a couple of FEDCONs, but we always seem to be busy at work during that time of year and all vacations are denied.

    Some friends attended Destination Star Trek: London and enjoyed it. Hopefully DST: Frankfurt will be just as fun. Plus it's a 20 min train ride away. I've never had a problem parking at the Messe, but a small group of us are going so the train is the easiest mode of transportation.

    I'm trying to decide if I should wear a regular Star Trek costume or a STO costume. Hmmm...

    Update - William Shatner has been added to the guest list. I saw him about 10 years ago and didn't like his arrogance; however, I'm told that he's more personable now.

    Haha, how did my original board name, which has been changed for years now, get into that quote? :lol:

    Saw the Shat last year at the Fed Con. Was cool to see Captain Kirk live on stage once, but won't get out of my way to see him again. To be honest it was a bit boring listening to him for an hour. Maybe I didn't get him on his best day, I don't know...

    Dude, that was just a "poke", once I realized that you'd changed your name. :p

    Sorry that I couldn't chat last night. Stayed up late doing some stuff for work.
