Roll Call/Welcome New Members!
« on: April 18, 2020, 03:57:56 pm »
Hello, Disco crew! As some of you may already know, I'm T'Lara. I'm the new XO of the Discovery, and I just wanted to say that I'm thrilled to be here and am looking forward to writing great stories with all of you. Currently we are finishing up a mission, but I thought it would be a good time to do some introductions for our new members and current members who might not know everyone yet. For those who don't know, we do have a Shadowfleet Discord server, which is a great way to communicate about both IC and OOC things.

For that reason, I'm proposing that we share a little bit about ourselves on this thread and this can be either IC or OOC and only as much as you are comfortable. I'm hoping this will help people put a face to the name (Or Discord tag to character, as the case may be) XD

I'm going to start. My name is Jackie and on Shadowfleet I play T'Lara and Vasilisa Belmont. My Discord tag is Jackie (T'Lara, Lisa) #7440 and if you would like to use another form of communication to talk to me feel free to send me a message on this site and we can figure it out. Echoing what I said on the Discovery Discord chat, I wanted to let you all know I have an open door policy so if you ever have a problem IC/OOC, want to discuss the mission, or just have a chat, I'll try to be online as much as possible.

As for getting to know me, I've been involved in Shadowfleet off and on since 2014 and have always loved the opportunities this site has given me to meet new people and write about what everyone came here for, Trek. T'Lara is half Vulcan/half Human and has always been a Science officer. Most of the time she'll be very blunt with you, but as usual with Vulcans you should never take it to heart. Who knows, maybe you'll be lucky enough to encounter her human side at some point. :) Well that's all from me. Feel free to add your own comments, I'm excited to meet/re-meet everyone!

Hello,

You know me from my other chars - Ruth and Hrafn probably.  Looking forward to writing with you again, T'Lara.

Everyone else... looking forward to getting to know you.  Luby is relatively new so I recommend reading her bio when you get a chance... as she has an interesting background.

Whazzup, all?

You'd know me as Nira Said and, depending on which simm you came from, Gid Sherem. I go by "multificionado" but my name is Chris. I've joined Shadow Fleet, one of the first forums I joined after my banishment from "Star Trek: Theurgy." I've been writing here on Shadow Fleet for more than a year, and I really love writing here. As you can tell from the misnomer, I'm a fan (aficionado) of a wide variety of franchises, Star Trek included. I loved this forum in that the admins are nicer, especially in making any recommended edits or posts, than the admin of "Theurgy," one Auctor Lucan, who, along with the majority of the writers I had gotten to know there, is a practical jerk (and that's the most polite term to describe him), and in that it's unique, in that this forum were the multiple simms centered on different ships or stations.

To sum up with Nira and Gid, Nira is a Betazoid who was raised in Arabia (hence the surname "Said.") and has an investigative mind. Nira originated from an OC in a Harry Potter forum I created (the first forum I joined after my banishment, but SF one of the first Trek-based forums), and I realized she worked better as a Star Trek RP character. Her being a forensic science officer is from an inspiration of a character I inherited on "Theurgy," who was a freed Borg Drone, who was also a forensic science officer. As for Gid, he was born on Bajor but raised as a Cardassian.

I look forward to getting to know y'all, old crew and new guys alike.

Hi,

I play Crewman Charles Stratton, in Operations. I am new to Shadowfleet. There are still things I am trying to sort out. I have rp'd for decades, but first character here, so bear with me if I ask a lot of questions.

I am on discord. Still learning that too. Roth is my discord account name, but I did figure out how to change it on Shadowfleet channels to Stratton.

I am not an expert on Star Trek. TOS and TNG are ones I am most familiar with. I was going for a red shirt character, which is why I picked ops.. only to find out.. Ops is now gold. >.< Live and learn, roll with it. 

Not really sure what else to say, except.. I do like torture my characters. So if you need that guy thats going to get beat up for the good of the mission.. just let me know.

Hello everyone.

I am Torra's player.  My online/discord name is Sinthija.  I have three characters on Shadowfleet - Rayek tr'Lhoell (Romulan male) my main (Katra), ShranLahr ch'Verret (Andorian male) my 1st alt (Challenger) and Danjar-Torra Addams  (Grazerite female) my 2nd alt (Discovery). 

For naming clarification I have head-canon that Grazerite naming resembles Bajoran wherein the family name comes first (but for Grazerites its the yearling name for a particular family group or upsol that comes first...) so everyone born in Torra's family group the same year as her are named Danjar.   Her personal name is Torra.   When she married (Damien Don Addams), rather than fully hyphenating her old and new names she added Addams at the end to honor human custom but had noted in her official records that in addressing that both her yearling name and married name are used.... so the proper addressing of her is Ensign Danjar-Addams.    But her written name is Danjar-Torra Addams. 

As a player, I have been with Shadowfleet for 2 and 1/2 year having started in the fall of 2017.   I fell in love with the site and love the writing I am able to participate in.  I make it a priority to write daily on each of my characters if at possible.  Personally, I am in my late 40's, married, mother of two.  A pet owner of 4 dogs and 2 cats.   I tend to overextend myself with holodecks but that's just because I want to build up relationships with any and all players.   So if you have a holodeck idea and you need someone to join in, do let me know... I may be slow on the holodecks... but I won't let it drop.

Hugs to all!

Oh one last thing.  I love playing NPC's.   

And I'm terrible at remembering to tag.. sorry.

It's mostly pronounced "Sai-eed," how it's usually pronounced. Then again, sometimes it's easy to read it as "Said" just from reading the name on, say, a PADD (some bouts of humor would have someone saying, "Nira said what?" Also, Amid is also an Arabic surname, pronounced ah-meed, but it can also easily be prounounced as "amid," and also the same thing, "amid what?")

Hands Lek a brown box with 'Oral B' on the side of it. "You may be needing these, Chief!" Ruth said with a knowing wink.

OK that is pretty much how I would say it, it's difficult without using official linguistic symbols (like you'd get in a dictionary) to say how I'm pronouncing it in my head. 

As for the name joke thing.... oh yeah my other char - Ruth.  Her surname has been an ongoing thing for years.  To the point that she gets 'The Siggy Twins' for her younger sisters and 'That Viking one...' LOL

What's good?

I'm Avicus. I play Ensign Four of Twenty (Freed Romulan Borg Drone), lackey in the Engineering Department.

I'm still pretty green to Shadow Fleet. Not the most social of peeps. But, I'm hoping to write with y'all soon.
