*As the Windstar approaches the ship, trekkin' becomes concerned that this whole thing may be a trap. She checks her equipment, flashlight, tricorder, phaser, Pagan medallion given to her by a medium on Earth. In a twinkling of light, trekkin' and Ivan beam onto the ship adrift on the edge of the nebula. There is the sound of bellowing laughter coming from a distant, unseen corner. Ivan's tricorder begins to blink on and off. Something has entered the room.*

Did you see that?


*trekkin' and Ivan quietly walk through the room. It is dark, but the essentials have made it through the transdimensional -thingamajiggie… Bar, pool table, couches, alligator…*

I have to find Pink2…he should be here somewhere. This is really creepy.

*trekkin' walks past a large oil painting of a man dressed in a 19th Century, Terran, Captain's uniform. He is rather striking, blonde hair, a beard and a rather stern expression on his face. * Did you feel that? A cold spot….right here…I have goosebumps, look.

*A shadow runs across the wall and disappears. There is random knocking and banging alternately underneath the floor and above the ceiling, trekkin' rubs her eyes, trying to see more clearly. The jukebox suddenly starts blasting music and the lights start flashing. The tricorder in her hand is flashing to the beat.*

Blast! That scared the bejesus out of me. We really need to stop time traveling. I'm not sure I can deal with this.

*A green blob of jello flies past leaving a trail of slime. In the corner trekkin' notices a backpack with a blaster attached to it. *

Ah yes…that proton pack will be handy in case Zuul decides to pop in.

*On the bar a glass flips over and an orange frothy liquid begins to fill up to the rim.*

Well, at least I can get a Fuzzy Malcolm here! Ivan, signal the crew to beam over. It appears that the ship's Ten Forward is functional even if this ship has been floating in space for 100 years.

I've been trying multiplayer in Starcraft. As I understand their rankings, I am one of the very worst players out of all the hundreds of thousands of people in that game.

So, yeah, I guess it's back to single player.

Nice one, Trekkin'! Posted Image

So, yesterday was a marathon day, today I'm tired. It didn't help that I was woken by fighting cats at 3.30 this morning (or there 'bouts)!

Approve of the thread subtitle. Don't cross the streams!

@Apoco - hope you have a good weekend.

I had a great weekend. Nonstop RPGing save for breaks to sleep and eat.
Plus we were playing a survival horror game... at night... in the woods. Best atmosphere ever. :P

Well, I'm already getting sick of the discussions on Starcraft's official forum. They're starting to remind me of the ones around Enterprise. "Guys, retcons happen in sci-fi! Deal with it!"

Never!

I did two loads of laundry today AND folded everything and put it away. :flex:

Usually at least some of it sits in the basket for two days. :whistle:

There is a post-basket laundry phase?

you guys i have been playing the crap out of some Mass Effect this weekend. so that's how productive i've been.

Time well spent. You should put some thought into eventually buying the sequel, because as I have been broken record-ing to Plaz, it's about eight billion times better.

Ouuu - everyone's disappeared into, uh, thin air..... *tip toes to the bar - orders up a hot fudge brownie sundae w/nuts and whipped cream*


The floor's kinda creaky .... maybe it's my imagination.


@TL and Trekkin - you were right. T'was a critter. A HUGE monstrosity of a flying demon water bug. Length - 4". Wings!!! Crawling up my walls and flying into things all night I presume. Found it in the morning. Upside down almost dead. It was HUGE. And it parked itself by my closet door. I've never seen a creature that large before. Creepy to the max. I was going to take a picture - but instead I cut it in half with a pair of scissors and that grossed me out so bad that I almost tossed my cookies. I just scooped up the guts and remains and tossed it in the back yard for some bird to chew on. Ugh. Gross. Nasty critter.







@Apoco - sounds like fun! I like backyard camping - I like camping period. Especially in the hills where it's cold!

Okay, this is probably a stupid question, but since most people are here instead of elsewhere, in my personal settings, I have the time set to CST (USA) cuz that's where I'm at. However, the time displayed now says 7:23 and it's really 10:23. So, I guess I shouldn't be set to CST???? Anyone know what I should set it to?

The power source on my tricorder keeps draining. There seems to be some sort of entity draining it.

WELL...it is finally raining here. It has rained all day. My poor squirt kid woke up to rain on the tent. They all looked pretty happy to be back on the mainland when the ferry landed this morning.

I think I have swimmer's ear or something....My ears are kinda achy. I guess it is a good thing I couldn't go to the beach today.

I love making my character dance in Star Trek Online! It's fun! Last night, I was playing dabo and dancing with the Admiral standing next to me. We had a great time!! Then I won 100K bars of gold pressed latinum. It was a very fun night. *gigglesnort*

Elf approaches the ship under impulse power. He sees a light from a few windows at one end of the ship. He commands his ship to a stop and transports over to the Ghost Ship.

Where is Pink2? He walks up to the bar and asks for a coffee.

Good morning, Ten Forward.
*jukebox*

i dunno. the first one has been pretty awesome. i'm at like level 40 and still not done. wooo
also... video game sex? that one came out of left field :err: unfortunately you don't get any experience points for it :P

Welcome to Bioware games. There's always a romance subplot.
The second one improves vastly on the original formula, gets rid of the stupid vehicle missions, and streamlines everything. No more time wasted on picking out weapons and items, no loot, just an upgrade system that is completely optional if you don't want to deal with it but with enough depth to entertain you if you do. Plus Garrus is a super badass in it.
Sorry, Mass Effect 2 is one of my favorite games. :P

Bugs, the time on the site has been screwed up for a while.

What she said. It's a forum-wide issue. I suppose you could set your time zone to two hours ahead if you wanted to.

I've found some amusement in dancing in WoW. My favourite is the bear form druid dance. Dancing bear FTW! I also like the Tauren (giant minotaur-like race) dance. It's awesome.

I can only imagine how silly the bear form dance will look when Troll druids come out, cause their bear forms already look pretty bizarre.

Good morning/afternoon/evening TF!!

Not a whole lot going on here. (I know, kinda shocking...) Just have to try to get organized for the school year. I received the bus schedule for the kids over the weekend. My middle school kid's bus comes at 7:35 and the elementary school bus comes at 8:55....jeez...nearly 9:00!! They won't get OFF of the bus until 4:10. It might even be dark by the time they get off the bus in the winter. What a joke.


LOL!! My daughter was just doing the "Peanut Butter Jelly" dance. (Think of Bugs Bunny doing the conga.)

Where is that Pink2? I think I need some coffee...
