    Hey! After an extremely long hiatus from all things BC, I purchased BCMG about a week ago. I'll try to be a little more involved now in fleet buissness, if I'm still welcome. Bugging out like that wasn't what I had in mind...but shite happens. Long, dull story. I'm not expecting to stay in charge of Wraith FIghter Command, and it doesn't look like there's been much intrest in fighter pilots anyways. Oh well. I left my sig off to denote my amiguous status. So, am I welcome back, Tac?

    Wraith Roster

    BCMG with a 56k that runs like 28.8, but I am told that cable will be avaliable by the end of the month. However, even then, as you can see, my system is a big, steaming pile of...laptop. No server hosting here. Man, I haven't done a roster in, what, two years? I'm getting warm fuzzies all over...
  3. Ah, 3020...I wish I had that beta Strik Pak still, that was a blast to play, even if it didn't have enemies...or turbolifts...complete decks...doors... Yeah, that was a blast! Seeing that BC pic reminds of when I first took by CC down to a planet in BCMG...I found myself looking for landing gear...*sighs happily*. Sometimes it's not what's there, but you wish was, that makes The Game so much more enjoyable... (edit: Whoo-hoo! 200 posts! I'm a real oldie-timer now! Man, it's great to be back!)

    Need help with fighters

    Another handy little trick is something that can only be done in BC... Retro-rockets are your friends. If you fly arsed-backward, the other craft will think you are runing away, and will persue with all vigor. Careful timing and clever flying will result in a nice, fat target that stays still right in "front" of you. This is a lasers-only trick, as missles will just make him scared and run off. 'Course, it's always akward if you're blasting away and run backward right into an asteroid. "Pilot, we usually see damage like that when folks run away. I don't care how many you got, no Medal of Valor."

    A Blast From The Past

    I had never heard of it (not into the gaming scene then) when I saw that some crazy dude was handing out a free game! The first time I launched from Galcom I knew this was the game I had always wanted: no fake boundries, no fake distances, and lots of buttons! Learning curve?! Who cares about learning curves when you can evacute your ship, blow it up, and STILL keep playing! Woo-hoo! P.S. Or not evacuate. That's fun too.

    Nothing much? Well, then, if it's okay... rp/ "Sir! Reporting for duty, sir!" "What? Who are...oh yes, I remember now. Didn't you go MIA or something?" "Sir, on route from my last mission I...ah...got lost, sir. The Navitron comp was disabled. I...er...mistook it for a microwave oven." "Well, that explains that messege from the chief engineer about cheese and tomato sauce in the circuit boards. You may...do whatever it is that you did, Commander...Whiny? Wipe-it?" "Whisper, sir. Commander Whisper." "Right. Whatever. Dismissed." /rp

    Fighter Command website

    Uh, hi! Sorry for the long delay. Hey! Cool! You do the additons yourself, Tac? Anyways, I do appritiate the update. I've been half-meaning to expand that site, but I doubt anything will happen until a) I get my stuff back together with Wraith and I learn HTML or get an editor. Perhaps Christmas break. And I shall be trying to check the boards more regularly now. Sorry about the rather dramatic AWOL, but I think I'm back. And viva BCM! It's out! I can't play it! My computer stinks! BHAWAHWAA!

    Not...dead...YET! *gasp* *gasp* First trip back after a veerryy extended leace from Wraith. Moving's hell for a fellow's web life. Anywho, I'm back. Tahnks for that standby, Tac, I was begining to wonder when I had to report to probe ops...

    New BCM weather fx shots

    Oooo...do Marine careers get to select umbrellas and galoshes? How far are the weather effects going? Will the snow pile up ("Damnit, Resnig, I don't care if there's 6 feet drifts! It's an All Terrain Vehical{/b], fer crying out loud!")? Will there be lighting? Heh, that'll make you think twice about flying you multi-billion dollar Battlecruiser in bad weather (if the STO's don't get ya first... )
  11. [rp] GCV-McKendrick Bridge [rp] The turbolift opened and let Liev onto the bridge. He saw Savage and a woman he did not recognize listening to a comm transmission of some sort. Savage was obviously exhausted, and whatever he was hearing did not seem to be improving matters. Stumbling a little with his semi-numbed knee, Liev approached Savage. Turning away from his comlink with an exasperated expression, Savage gace a weary eye to Liev and said, "Yes?" Giving a short bow, Liev replied a little hesitantly, "David Liev, sir. You...summoned?" [/rp] *sigh* Have to do everything...

    Ready? Set? ARGUE

    <----Shameless Plug If you don't like Galcom and thier dirty dealings, but your not too wild about the Insurrgents either, Wraith Fleet, comparativly, is less involved in Insurrgent stuff and "underhanded" dealings, and deals more with the rest of the galaxy. And don't you fellas start saying this stuff about "black hand" and "special forces" and such! We'd never do a thing like that...
  13. I killed my last post, so Liev never left the Med Bay. Him being on the bridge would have casued to many conflicts. [rp] GCV-McKendrick Med Bay Liev was tranported from the Vulture Med Bay, and in good time. The klaxons and countdowns were begining to annoy him. He found himself in other Med Bay, but this one was larger, contained better equipment, and had a number of Galcom uniformed medics rushing about, suggesting that he (and probably everyone else) had been rescued by a Galcom vessel. The efficiency and competence of the medical staff was light-years better than the hodge-podge triage of the Vulture, and Liev's leg was mended in quick order. Just as he was heeled, what seemed to be the CMO of the ship approached him and gave Liev a datapad. He unlocked it with his thumbprint. Noting it came from Savage, he read on: quote: Despite all the screw ups and our near fatal exit from the Vulture, we have made our rendevous. The mission is still a go and we still have a lot of work ahead of us. An hour from now this ship will be back on itÔÇÖs regular patrol route. Twelve hours later, that patrol route will take us into near Earth orbit. At that point, two teams will beam down to the surface and rendevous with their respective contacts. The McKendrick will continue on with itÔÇÖs patrol and return to earth exactly six hours later. At that point, providing everything goes to plan, both teams will be extracted with Akira Exact specifics of the mission assignments will be divulged to you by your mission leader before we beam down. Assignments will be posted in the briefing room in eight hours. Until then, get yourself some food and rest. This ship is running on a skeleton crew, and like the Vulture, all external comms have been disabled for security reasons. Two teams will be formed and at the appointed time, will beam down to Earth. During the last few days, two operatives working on the surface have been able to pinpoint the location of a secret Earthcom facility, deep underground. DonÔÇÖt ask me how, because I won't tell you. Team one is charged with infiltrating this facility and taking control of the security center. Once this facility has been taken, they are to place explosive charges at several vital operation locations, including a heavily guarded transport scrambling centre. This facility must be neutralised if team two is to have any chance of success. Team two is the rescue team. They are charged with retrieving Akira. Once the transport scrambling facility has been neutralised, team two will beam into a quiet corner of what we believe is the interrogation centre and locate Akira. This area is heavily patrolled and guarded with automated defense systems. Our operatives on the surface have equipment that may make youÔÇÖre job a little easier. Once Akira has been secured, the teams will return to the beam in point for immediate extraction. As soon as you recieve this and are healed, Liev, come to the bridge. We need to talk. Liev finished the message, and in promptly deleted itself. He thought about the last lines in Savage's message. As he accepted his discharge and left the Med Bay, he thought, "Perhaps now I shall find out what a commando raid needs with a pilot."

    What's your MBTI type?

    ISTJ "...follow the hierarchy..." LOL! Yeah, right! "Cautious..." Heh...my friends say I'm clinicly paranoid... "...while you don't SEEK leadership positions, you might find yourself in one..." Tac will know why this is incredibly funny. YOU'd be..." Not really. I like difference in people. I respect other's opinions, and I hope other's respect mine. And if they don't... We'll just see how rigid I am when MP comes out. *chuckles* But by and large, quite correct.

    Guess whos birthday it is today?

    Happy Birthday! Hope ya got a good one!
  16. Good point. Is this "Empire vs. Federation" or "ST vs. ST". If the latter, a Q in the mess would end things real quick-like (unless he was feeling playful... ) But, if Feds vs. Imps, I'd go with the Feds. Torpedo bays and phase cloaks aside, phasers can burrow through soild rock with pin-oint accuracy while in orbit (episode when E-D drilled in order to make a transport underground (rebels of some sort, I think)). So, we got weapons that could shoot between Vader's eyes at ~100km, while in SW ANH a SD had trouble hiting the Falcon which was no more than 5 klicks away. Then there's warp drive. SW ships are blind using their FTL drive, yet ST ships can not only see but use the drive like a fine tool (whereas SW it's "point int the right direction, turn it on, turn it off). Imgaine this: A Fed ship warps in to within 50km of a SD, oh heck, make it a SSD. Phasers take out the shield generators (practical bulls-eyes) and some torpedos get pumped into that lovely exposed command deck. No more bridge, no more SSD (ala RotJ at Endor), while the off-gaurd SSD is still rying to power up the turbolasers and have those monster turrets lock on (from 50km away.) Repeat as needed. Fighters? Pah! Those puny TIE's barley have a hull, they don't even have life support! Barley worth the phaser energy. Besides, in an attack like above they wouldn't have the time to deploy. The Force? Double pah! In TPH (Episdoe 1), it's explained that the Force is basicly a bunch of amoebas talking to each other. Amoebas that don't exsist in the Milky Way, which I can say becasue WE certainly don't have the Force! Jedi's and such would be some many monks with little plasma swords. ST and SW technical stuff is a perverse hobby of mine. I got every cannon technical guide from both universes in front of me right now, plus the SW trilogy on tape and almost every ST episode in my head (except DS9, which was just bad ). Cower before my nerdness!

  18. I toasted this. Me being on the bridge ect. didn't agree with other more plot critical posts. Whisper still in Med Bay. [ 04-23-2001: Message edited by: Whisper ]
  19. Foss: Err...let's just pretend that the docs just ignored me. okay? Actually, I can think of a better reason: Liev already has a fieild cast on his leg, so the docs might consider him "healed", even if he is in some pain. Thus, they ignore him, and Liev (not knowing triage procedures) is sitting around waiting to be worked on. And since it's not the doc's fault, I'll just forget that revenge bit.
  20. [rp] May 19, 3008 S.S. Vulture Medical May Becoming rather impatient after waiting for someone to look at his leg, Liev decided to have a little fun and hack into the Vulture's TacOps computer. After easily bypassing the rather perfunctary merc firewall and gates, Liev saw with some surprise that they were not alone. A Nightstar with an independently registered IFF signal. As he watched, the GCV Graf Spree decloaked no more than 20 clicks from the, hmm, Leo, powered its weapons, and waited. Small wieght lifted from Liev's shoulders. Fliting off to a no-doubt heavily fortified Earthcom base (Remember why we're here? He he, I just did!) in an unarmed frieghter did not sit well. But with a Battlecruiser and a Nightstar on their flank, the odds looked a little better. That is, if a frontal appraoch was the plan. If Liev found out that it was, he had quietly promised himself that he would leave the Vulture at post haste, and try to spring the Akira on his own. An all out assault on an Earthcom prison (or whatever) by the leader of the "lemmings" sounded more like suicide than a succesful mission. If worst came to worse, he could always lift a fighter from that Nightstar... ...which just surrenederd, according to the white flag the TacOps AI had placed over the ship. "Curious," thought Liev. An assault cruiser surrenduring to a merc transport? Stormcarriers, mercanaries, rebel Fleet officers, Gams...an intresting week indeed. Feeling advantures and more than a tad curious, Liev conviced the computer to "prescribe" him some painkillers, and hopped off to the bridge. The medical ignored him, as they have been. [/rp] Yes I'm a teensy bit muffed about not being treated (most everyone is dead anyway, right?), so I'm going to extract revenge and casue some trouble... muwahahaha!
  21. Of course, with the Insurgents, they only have the goal of wresting Earth with military force. While on the other hand, Galcom is helping to liberate truly repressed people all over the galaxy, stopping the Gammulan horde from enslaving every known sentient being...that sort of thing. Plus, in GCO, Galcom has way more resources, trade lines, and allies, meaning exploring the galaxy is a viable option, while the Insurgents are more or less on their own. Then there's the Independant Trader, friend to all, loyalty to none, looking for the fast buck. Given all the options, I made a hard choice (but I like it!): ------------------ Commander David "Whipser" Liev GCV Bold Voyager, WRAITH HQ(LYRIUS) Leader- Wraith Fleet/Wraith Fighter Command "The underestimated weapon will deal overestimated havoc." http://www.geocities.com/cmdliev/flightroster.html External Beta Tester Battlecruiser Millennium
  22. [rp] Modified TRT-15 Trnasport S.S. Vulture 11:31, May 19, 3008 ST-6 "Arr, meheartys! Abast, thar, lanlubber! Swing up the mast, lower to starbard! He be lookin' for booty, mates! Captain Liev is the most ruthless pirate on the sevean seas! Yo ho..." Liev woke with a start. What kind of dream was that?, he though. I had a wooden leg!. He tried to rise. With a start, he realized that he couldn't move his leg, and it felt rather...wooden. He looked down and saw a crude field splint over his broken leg. He realized that someone had come while he was out and did a rough patch-up on him. He tested his weight on the gimp appendage. He could hardly feel anything, probably due to pain drug of some sort. He winced, remebering the wild dreams he had when he was being treated for a burn. Realzing the drug might wear off soon, Liev decided to make his way to the med bay while hs still could. He walked rather awkwardly into the corridor. And saw a stun gernade bounce past. He quickly hobbled down the corridor, trying to get as much metal between him and the radiation that would soon follow. As he turned, he heared Gammulan gunfire and yelling humans. He heard the wump of a stun grenade. During back, he saw one of the men he noticed at the briefing (the one who threw that punch?) run down clutching a Gam rifle. Hoping whatever the man was shooting at was to distracted to notice an injured passenger, he hobled quickly to the neaest turbolift. As the door was closing, he could hear more shouting from where the man with the rifle was running to. When he arrived at the med bay he could begin to feel his leg. Whoever had set it did a great job...for someone with no medical training. Liev was beging to feel bits of bone digging into the muscle around his leg. Entering, he saw what looked like an understaffed triage, with patients on the beds and floor, but few doctors. A second look told him that those were actually bodies. Another testament to Gammulan efficiency. "Pargdon," he grated out, "could I be looked at?" One of the doctors looked up from his paitent, a bloodied man straped down onto his bed. The doctor looked very, very tired. "What is it? Hmmm, broken leg? Sit over there and Ensign Donalds will be with you." Liev nodded and hobbled to the chair the doctor had indicated. [/rp]
  23. "All you need to know is that, Battlecruiser Millennium is still on track for release in May..." Wha?! Last I heard SC hasn't announced a date yet. Was I sleeping, or is VE cooking some news?
