  • The Borg on my ship were basically inherited when Jinx got the ship, or rather, when the Nightingale was designed and built. The reason behind this was because given all the Borg tech being used in the Nightngale's construction, and the fact that it…

  • I received my acceptance today, so I'll be joining the DFA Cromwell-B as an engineer sometime over the next week or so I've asked the Captain about introducing the Personal Transporter Buffer as a personal project, and we'll see what he says.

  • The effects aren't different colours, just the icon. And when you use it, it stops you shooting things, regenerates a prtion of your health depending on how many targets you've hit with it, and in STFs is useful against mobs of low end Borg up to…
  • Not having any tattoos, I'm not sure how violently an artist shakes their bottle before starting, but from what you have said, I now have this image in my head of a Starfleet officer running from someone shooting at him, diving into cover, then remo…

  • Nice Marcus. Somewhat longer and more in depth than my application
  • Marcus, I just got round to reading your polished story, wth the epilogue. Superb. It almost brought a tear to my eye, lol. I do have to ask though... orbital skydiving? Have you been reading my background story? That is something I had Jinx do d…

  • I've just applied to join the DFA. My character choice was easy - the next host for the Jinx symbiont Also, I'd like to agree with Marcus... Love the uniforms and comm badges.
  • So, how do you get free lobi in game? I know about the 20 crystals spread out amongst the FE missions, but you guys are talking like there is another way to get free lobi without opening lockboxes. So, how do you do it?

  • Thanks for the review Brian. I've ben in and made a few changes based upon your recommendations, as well as a few given by others.

  • Mine is another Trill-based entry. Since I've been writing my character background out, I've spent a fair bit of time reading up on Trill, it's inhabitants, and it's past. One thing that is never mentioned is how Trill developed in the mirror univer…

  • I've made a few changes as people have recommended, and I think it will help. Thanks again guys.
  • Brilliant. Thanks for the review Brian. I'll take a look at it and see about some of those 'Continues'
