    Thanks, and sorry, got another--is there shore leave going on? E.g., anyone who's not attending the wedding, are they free to go out?

    Yes, good point. Shore leave would have been granted to any Yorktown crewmember whose duties did not require them to remain aboard. I'll add that to the game thread.

    The Captain's opening remarks at the wedding ceremony, beginning "Since the days of Earth’s first wooden sailing ships...," are drawn from Capt. Kirk's remarks at another such ceremony in ST:TOS "Balance of Terror," as well as Capt. Picard's in ST:TNG "Data's Day" and Adm. Ross's in ST: DS9 "'Til Death Do Us Part."

    Daayum, I'm glad Nia can't hear Graham's thoughts. This feels like a hate crime!

    Just think how many future opportunities this opens up for Nia - or anyone really - to make Graham feel guilty about any happiness....!

    Is that smilie new to you? I think it's been around since I've been here, at least as far as I can recall. Anyway it's just Nia being a drama queen. Usually Kylah gets all that angst but Nia demands her turn.

    She looks up. “If anyone has just cause why they should not be lawfully married, speak now, or forever hold your peace.”
    Emphasis added...I can't believe Rangin took shore leave and is missing this!

    True, he is missing quite the juicy opportunity! Maybe that's why he left--too tempting. Although if Nia can control herself, Rangin probably can too.

    OMG soap opera moment...Nia stands up and shouts "Because I'm carrying his baby!" - which, of course, is all the more soap-opera-y appropriate since they never did the deed...

    Dang I seem to write more when my characters aren't actually doing a damn thing. Stop me before I burn my fingers off!

    Yeah! What she said! Damn she writes good.

    Also for the record, Nia's even lying to herself, because she does believe in Sid'Os.

    Oh my. Now here's a turn-up. During their rapprochement conversation, did Lizzie share a bit of news on the gender-identity front?

    Thanks EH for all your game-mastering (also the nefariousness... )

    And thanks all for your creativity, also melodrama, snark etc!

    Our pleasure! I'm still having a lot of fun with the USS Yorktown gang, and hope you are, too. Best Thanksgiving wishes to those who celebrate it.

    Please join me in welcoming stolz, who'll be playing the ship's newest medico, Dr. Bizhi "Biz" Mäkeläinen. His character will be appearing shortly. For more details, see the updated character profile listings here (the second listing in post 6): http://www.mellophant.com/forums/sho...acter-profiles

    Woohoo, what splendid news, EH! Big applause to you, stolz, it's a treat to meet another player as well as an intriguing new PC. I enjoyed the bio and am looking forward to being introduced in-game to Doc Mäkeläinen. (To paraphrase Indiana Jones: umlauts! why'd it have to be umlauts?) Certainly intrigued about those nightmares, not to mention his family tree!

    hello

    As for the umlauts, what did you expect? The man is literally from Mars.

    I know I'll be copying-and-pasting a bit more than before ;-)
