Discussion of The Down Payment Mission
« on: April 16, 2017, 05:09:32 PM »
Hi all!

I have posted the first part of a two-part post that will introduce the mission and begin roleplay.  Roleplay will officially begin tomorrow, once everyone who happens to celebrate Easter has had a chance to conclude their celebratory activities.

Part II is coming soon.  Thanks to everyone who has decided to join.   I hope to help make this a memorable trip.  :-)

If you have any questions at any point, please feel free to post them here!

Cheers!

Hello everyone!

The intro post is completed. 

Here's our current setting:

In the final seasons of DS9, the Romulans built a field hospital on Derna, a moon in the Bajoran system.  By our current timeline, that field hospital has been long-vacant.  Officially.

The abandoned field hospital has been turned into a center of commerce for the likes of Jor Trem, a sketchy Bajoran crime figure who deals in the smuggling trade.  The hospital rooms have been largely converted into offices and living quarters for his associates.  There are large landing bays on site that were once used to receive Romulan medical shuttles and are now used as berths for his smuggling ships.

The crew of the Last Chance has been assembled in one of those landing bays, awaiting the arrival of their Captain and First Officer.  (Who will be arriving presently.)

The facility is unofficially referred to as 'The Outpost' by those in the know. 

Feel free to post any backstory you like, or proceed to make your introductions in the Landing Bay.

Cheers!

So, I'm the drive technician. But, um, what does a drive technician do here?

I'll work on my intro later.

Well, the Drive technician works on drive systems under the direction of the engineer.

But the title is a triple entendre. 

There's the Drives of the ship, but also the human drive aka seduction assignments, and the occasional bit of ultraviolence, which is represented by the drive to survive.

Between the three, your full skillset is covered.

Many of these titles are only tangentially related to their actual function.  Because 'Mechanic, Seductress, and Assassin' looks suspicious on a resume.  ;-)

Oh good, I don't have to worry about the double entendres. ;)

I think the second one would be "sex drive".

But D'Zyre's no assassin. The coroner ruled all the deaths to be accidents or due to natural causes: heart attack, pheromonal overdose, suffocation...

Tag Lucille and Rod.

Continuity seems to have gotten a bit confused around here, or maybe Jenna and Maura jumped ahead to the meeting too early? It took me a while to decide where to put D'Zyre.

Also, Roderick and D'Zyre are going to have quite a surprise when they turn up in the same bedroom... ;)

Hello!   No worries.  I intended the briefing to be after the tour, but I don't mind early-birds getting ticked at the Johnny come Latelies.

There isn't much to the ship, so feel free to jump through the highlights quickly and I'll get the briefing going immediately thereafter.

Tags to all in my vicinity.  I anticipate arriving at our mission destination by the end of week 2.

Cheers!

Hey all,

We're headed to the mission briefing, next.  I'll be adjusting the roster based on who shows up (posts) to that briefing.  There may have been some crew fluctuation over the past week.  I think we lost someone and gained a couple.

After the briefing is complete, we will be time-jumping ahead to our ship's arrival at the mission location, where the meat of the mission will progress.   Because these featured sims tend to have a limited duration, we'll be jumping right into the thick of things relatively quickly.

Cheers!
