Station's Log – Stardate 68760.40

The Federation Council, at the behest of Kai Winn of Bajor have decided to host a conference on Starbase-42 focusing on the Spirituality of the Federation. There has been a vocal minority among the Bajoran people who have condemned Federation admission of Bajor on the grounds that the Federation is hostile to anyone who believes in higher powers. The accusation has been taken poorly behind closed doors. The part that troubles several officials is the possibility that they might be right.

DareDevil - The Netflix Series

So DareDevil came out last Friday, and pretty much everyone I know binge watched it. Everyone on every other geek site binge watched it, all like that. Frankly I don't care for, nor have the time all at once, to binge a 24 episode season. I like taking my time with a series, enjoying each episode, going away, thinking on it, then coming back. So I've ended up only at Episode 6 so far.

I tend to get pulled away at good parts at times as well.

Deep Dive for Old Fics

One of the things I want to do as I fix and recreate the story archive is go back into Archive.org and try to locate and repost old stories that have almost certainly been lost. We used to do this, acting as mirrors for eachother back when all anyone had was geocities websites and text files for our stories. No special php mysql stuff. IT made life a bit easier, or we at least linked directly to those text files.

Star Wars: Tie Fighter - An 80's anime style short years in the making!

I found this a few days ago, only now getting a chance to post it. Someone spent something like four years working on this, creating an 80's anime style short for Star Wars, focused on the Empire. I don't know why, but Anime from before computer coloring and such seems so much more detailed and intracate then current stuff. I think it's because people go for the flat colors far too often, not enough shading or something.

World Builders

Part of what we are hoping to accomplish with this section of the page is to create worlds others can take part in, create stories in, that sort of thing. THat takes world building. Anyone who is willing to work on World Building is more then willing to come here and help out, as long as you are willing to share that world with others.

Puttering Away

I thought I'd give an update to anyone keeping an eye on this page. I've gotten the majority of all needed and extra features active on the page. I'll keep working on new ideas but for now we should be at Feature Freeze. We'll be trying to get the legacy content properly imported into the system, and that will slowly but surely populate the story area.

I've added print outs of all the stories as html/pdf/epubs to read all at once, any improvements can be recommended in the suggestion box.

Current Features!

I figured you guys might appreciate an update on the site refit. Well right now we are processing through the stary database. Apparently there was a large amount of chapters not completely imported over when we did it the last time. Concidering how we have to go through now and manually attach chapters to stories, we're now also getting through and fixing these upload errors. IT's going to take a while, but we'll get through it. If you have time you can go through your accounts My Drafts aea and help fix things that way.

Station’s Log Stardate 68691.90

One of the interesting design decisions for Starbase-42 was to keep the enclosed Spacedock design from Starbase-1. The outer space doors sealing in ships that have been damaged or have needs which require a more protective area then just exposed space. The inside of the docking port is just massive when you consider it can fit a Galaxy-Class starship. The O’Neil Cylinder below that, and the additions of the primary anti-matter reactors that are used to provide power to the entire structure puts Starbase-42 closer to eight kilometers in length. Spacedock is only five.

Bug Report

Well, here I am telling you about some of the Nut's and Bolts of the page now. First off, it is going to get even easier to use the page over time. I'm hoping that we haven't done too much too fast, but so far everything seems to be working. I've squashed a bug in my user content management system so that is now operation normally. Any issues with it let me know, we can work on it.

We now have an IRC Channel!

I've had IRC channels setup for the groups for a while now but never did figure out how to present them to everyone. Well now here they are. If you look up at the menu on there you will see #(Group Name) Chat. Click that and it will take you to a javascript chat client page where you can join the chatroom and discuss whatever you want with everyone that joins in. Give it a shot. Things will be slow for a while until we get a regular crowd but don't give up on it.

Imperium Nocturna

A long time ago, Red Star started a forum fic that ended up balloning into something major. I copied all of the entries on those threads and tried to originalize them some. I've taken that and have held on to the material. I have a lot of ideas I never wrote down that may have been forgotten. But for now, this is being setup as our First World.

The Inside of the Dyson Sphere from Star Trek: The Next Generation - "Relics"

We’ve gotten most primary systems online and all information networks are operations as well as can be expected. We’re linked into the Federation Database and should have no problems sending reports and updates to Starfleet Command. I hope at least. There is always a shakedown period for any structure.

Epicon Reviews~Dracula: Untold

Before I begin, I wish to say one thing. To any fans of Stephanie Meyer's “Twilight” franchise, good on you. Enjoy your entirely ridiculous watering down and over-romanticizing of what makes a Vampire a FREAKING VAMPIRE (and, by extension, a Werewolf into a FRIGGING WEREWOLF!). I just don't see the appeal in this story: you have vampires who SPARKLE (READ PLEASE: S-P-A-R-K-L-E! AS IN TINKERBELL!) in sunlight, and have been around long enough to engage in the modern-day version of “mysterious teen angst”, as well as werewolves who hunt in large packs and look like BOY-BAND WANNA-BES.

Some newer things!

Well, I'm currently still trying to make things work better. It's a bit of a pain, but some things are improving slowly but surely. EPICON has helped out a lot in getting the main story archive edited and setup properly. I want to take this moment to thank him for that while I've been tweaking features and settings for the page. I'm hopefully going to soon be able to start shutting down certain things under the hood in order to speed some things up.
