hoops, would you mind ordering me to put people in the brig? I'm not sure I'll be around after the away mission, and before day ends.

Wait, you probably can use that AP for more important stuff. I'll figure something out. I'm leaving at 5 Central, but as long as we finish all away missions by then, I should be all right.

Barkeep49 07-08-2008 02:49 PM

The crack of the whip is heard as Saldana takes a crew of five slaves out to mine for some Cyrstilium.

Barkeep49 07-08-2008 02:50 PM

I do accept conditional orders.

Why not go ahead and put the order in? Kwhit and path both have used up their AP and it shouldn't effect anything.

hoopsguy 07-08-2008 02:56 PM

I concur with Alan. I can issue the order, but that would keep me from being able to chat with Path (assuming he responds that he has time to chat this afternoon ... his schedule can be hit/miss from what I've seen).

I'd rather wait and see what happens with the away missions. Conditional orders are a little hard, since I'm not sure what can happen on them.

RendeR 07-08-2008 02:58 PM

Just got caught up folks, Sorry I wasn't here to lead the away mission. I'll take the next one out.

Do we need a third mission today or should it wait until tomorrow?

I think my best actions today are to:

Train one Private to become an Ensign (BK does the second training cycle HAVE to be the necxt day or could I do a Day/night training to promote them faster?)

Assign one Private to be another MEDIC.


Thoughts?

RendeR 07-08-2008 02:59 PM

Nevermind BK, I just re-read the rules and see that training is a DAY only action.

jeheinz72 07-08-2008 03:00 PM

Well given that only 16 out of the 23 of us can sleep tonight anyhow (that's how that works, right)?

I'll sign up to sacrifice sleep tonight to do a night-repair. I'm not sure I want to publicize where I'm going with it though.

We're going to need every engineer we've got once the spawn get going.

RendeR 07-08-2008 03:04 PM

I also think we need to vote for no execution tonight. No real reason to suspect anyone yet so why take the risk of losing valuable personnel?

I think I'll second this unless someone has a better idea. I can work through the night as well.

RendeR 07-08-2008 03:05 PM

It sorta sucks that the Officers can't assist in repairing anything. makes us a little useless at times I think.

Not a bad idea, though we should likely cap it at 2 of the 4 of us I'd think.

Barkeep49 07-08-2008 03:07 PM

When Saldana and the slaves return, he's not terribly happy. "Listen the site should have been good. And what was accomplished wasn't all that great. You all know that this planet is arid. It's hilly. It's dusty. It's boiling hot out there which doesn't make the work easy. But there are just some places you expect to find Crystilium and this was one of them. But there just wasn't a whole lot of it there."

When the results are refined you discover that the away team only recovered 16 units of Crystilium which isn't bad but not what was expected based on the exploration.

Sign me up for no sleep, too. I figure I can guard the security HQ. Provided I get a phaser, though. If I don't get one, I might as well just sleep.

Training can only be done during the day cycles.

claphamsa 07-08-2008 03:08 PM

I dont have any real night time value.....

KWhit 07-08-2008 03:11 PM

Was the saldana away mission the planned one or unplanned?

Tyrith 07-08-2008 03:11 PM

My suggestion would be that two engineers repair the slave pens tonight - we already have at least two volunteers. Slave Pens can't be attacked if the Security HQ is fixed, which it should be at the end of the day today. Then the other engineers can do their own thing, or nothing at all; there should be a decent amount of out and about activity tonight regardless so I'm not too concerned about running out of beds.

KWhit 07-08-2008 03:12 PM

I agree on the No Lynch vote tonight. I normally hate that strategy, but everyone is important in this game, so we need to wait for something more than just a simple shot in the dark.

Barkeep49 07-08-2008 03:13 PM

"Doctor, if you could come with me," hoopsguy says to path. The two disappear into a room where they can talk privately.

KWhit 07-08-2008 03:13 PM

So the question on the table is should render lead an away mission to mine or should he train.

I think I am leaning toward him taking a team on an away mission.

Thoughts?

i dont know if it made any difference in the result...i requested my mission be mining in the area scouted by Telle's exploration mission

i also volunteer not to sleep tonight...i will guard the slave pen

Tyrith 07-08-2008 03:16 PM

Someone has to start what we're already saying we're going to do.

Slave Pen will be automatically guarded if the Security HQ works.

hoopsguy 07-08-2008 03:17 PM

Also, does the next mission still benefit from Telle's scouting? Or was that lost on the slave mission?

PurdueBrad 07-08-2008 03:17 PM

Thanks for the protection, I sent in my plans to work overnight. I'll follow my fearless Chief Engineer on this:

vote no lynch

Barkeep49 07-08-2008 03:17 PM

This mission did benefit from the exploration bonus garnered by Telle.

I'm leaning towards him training someone to become an ensign.. either way I feel if he goes today he should continue to be available for outside away missions. I think we should minimize the amount of crew that gets exposed to the outside.

It provides a decreasing bonus for an unknown number of missions.

Chubby 07-08-2008 03:20 PM

No Lynch

I agree with others that there really isn't any point to taking a shot in the dark when there's so many roles with a purpose.

Do we for sure have the Security HQ fixed? I know me, Tyrith and PB count as 4. Did Danny check in affirming his repair of it?

sorry if I just missed it.

I think he was asking if future missions benefit, or is it just the one immediately following Telle's mission (i.e. the slave mission).

If Danny doesn't show up soon I'll take care of putting him to work.

I don't think he did. That's the other thing I was waiting for, before I could put people in the brig.

Alan T 07-08-2008 03:26 PM

Ok, here are my thoughts...

I'm thinking we should stop here for away missions for today. I think we should have Render train one of the privates that did not go on the away mission today (so either Bulletsponge, Chubby or Mark Vaughn) to become an ensign which will take today and tommorrow to do. Tonight kwhit works on more mission plans as well as tommorrow and tommorrow Saldana and Telle can lead two mining missions to get more crystlium.

The following day we should have three teams available with the new ensign also available to lead an away team.. If Render feels strongly about going or the crew really thinks it is a good idea to get another away team out there, then Render can make that choice..

Did it benefit from the bonus of being one of the missions that I planned today?

Vote No Lynch

hoopsguy 07-08-2008 03:29 PM

As you might be able to tell from my signature, I hate the idea of "No Lynch". I would have been willing to consider it before seeing the flavor on the Day 1 post but knowing that there are spawn on the ship I think we definitely should take a shot.

Quote:

But if the fear of turbulence isn’t enough it’s what happens as the emergency lights start to come on that really frightens people: there are sightings of Spawnlings. Not at all once, so people aren’t sure if there is more than one (though through later reexamination it becomes clear that there couldn’t be more than 3), but there was definitely a Spawnling aboard. And then there wasn’t.


Just about all of the public roles are replaceable. Are you worried about private roles? If so, how is that different than a normal game?

Heck, vote me if you think that I'm a bad guy here. But I think "No Lynch" is a losing strategy that concedes Day 1 to the wolves. Even more so because we sent people out on away missions who could have been compromised.
