Here are the main plots of "A Diplomatic Affair" so far, in no particular order:
* Besm settlers moving onto the starbase.
* Interrogation of Zelda Alegari - progressing toward end
* Study of the jovian planet near SB-109
* Tram accident - finished
* Pirate plot continues. More stuff coming soon!
* Phantom of the Opera showing - finished
* Fallout from Col. Wellington's departure - finished
* Weird happenings with Dr. Dhuro's computer
* Addamses in Space! - and now on the space station!
* Dobbs Awfulness - The Plot Sickens.
I'm going to list a few major plot events that happen on specific days. Some days will have multiple posts occurring on them. When this happens (such as for the tram accident), please estimate the time of day, as well. Feel free to rearrange events as needed, but Jenny has the final say on the MD that an event occurs. Because someone has to have the final say, and it might as well be the CO. That's why they pay her the big bucks. :)

CG) You're welcome!
(JL) The Addams weirdness that has been the Crimson Assurance plotline ties in on MD 1 as USS Kingfisher arrives at the lower secure harbor with Crimson Assurance in tow. Yes; I need to start that moving. Mea culpa. The official opening of the Besm enclave is MD4, although there are one to two hundred engineers and construction experts already present, working on turning the area into a suitable habitat for their species. And, of course, the Ripper and Pearl sisters are already established on the promenade at the restaurant Pearl with a Chainsaw on deck 666.
(JL) As I've said before (and no doubt will again) I'm makin' this all up as I go along. I have only two cardinal rules: try your hardest not to contradict stuff that's already been written, and don't spoil someone else's plotlines. Please remember that my primary character is actually the base CMO, and that I'm always open for JPs.
But bottom line? Whatever makes you happy tickles me just pink.
Let me know if Artyom can join in on any of this.
Also, and I'm not sure if this is the right place to put this. If not, let me know and I'll throw it elsewhere. But I'm back and ready to get writing again. Sadly, I did not pass my exam but have rescheduled a second take for a couple of weeks from now.
Here are some log Ideas I've been putting together in my head. Any takers?
- Log between Artyom and Captain Torrog in which Artyom is called upon to fix something. Let the harassment begin.
- While performing maintenance in one of the turbo shafts, Artyom and ___ are knocked out by a energy cascade. They regain consciousness, discover their injuries, and discover that the cascade has saturated the tube preventing communications. Together, they need to reach safety.
- (This is a prelude to a subplot involving a custody dispute over Matthew between Artyom and Rees's parents) Artyom meets a potential romantic interest.
- New character named "Vis" is a Crab-like humanoid from an isolationist world -- bio will be loaded shortly -- who is sent to assess the Federation by joining Starfleet. Introduces him/it to the station.
- Matthew, being a smart and clever three year-old child, has figured out how to escape his quarters when Artyom is preoccupied. He decides to take Laika for a walk.
Rob- Did you have a romantic partner in mind already? I have a number of characters who would be charmed to come across Matthew on his walk. ~Ruth
(Susan) You said: - Log between Artyom and Torrog in which Artyom is called upon to fix something. Let the harassment begin.
This sounds good. I'll be home by Tuesday and will start a post asking for your help with something. We can have a little fun. =)
Ruth: So...our resident Romulans need some interaction with people around the station and I'm not just talking about the Ambassador! Anyone interested?
Josh - Good to be back! Let me know if Solan can be of use for anything :) sporting a new look and a temporary accessory.
