OOC Question

Postby Allen Chi » Mon Dec 01, 2003 2:28 pm

Hey, I'm a new guy around here and I was just wondering; I've been receiving posts through email, and I take a read through the forums and I see that there are also posts going on in here. Am I supposed to also post via both methods or just email?

At the moment, I'm still catching up to the story but I am somewhat confused at some points. If someone could please fill me in to the current mission that'd be appreciated.

Anyways, hello to everyone, and if my questions could be answered, that'd be great. I look forward to meeting you all.

With this being an e-mail sim, all logs need to be submitted to the mailstring.

Everyone is welcome to post their logs here, on the Zealous forums, as a way to "showcase" their writing. Some do it, but not everyone. It can be helpful for others, but it's not mandatory.

The only time that it becomes essential that logs be posted on the forum is when there are problems with the mailstring. I'm hoping that I don't jinx us by stating this, but we thankfully have not had any major malfunctions with the mailstring in a while.

As for the storyline, the summary should be updated within the next day or two, so that should hopefully fill in some of the gaps!

Another question if I may;

my duties as a Tactical officer, what do they entail? Will I be assigned a specific role or should I just make stuff up?

I actually found this on a site, which details various crew positions. Here is what they had to say for Tactical:

Depending on the situation, Tactical can be one of the busiest, but most enjoyable positions. The Tactical officer is the backbone of the ship.

Tactical is responsible for all defensive systems (shields, phasers, photons, etc.). Tactical also scans and provides data on all encountered vessels. The Tactical Officer on the bridge must also coordinate with the Security Officer on duty.

When ordered to by the Captain he fires weapons, raises shields, and determines damage done to the enemy. He also raises people on hailing frequencies. The Tactical officer must know the correct balance of damage inflicted to the other ship for each firing of the phasers and photons.

Tactical controls the cloaking device and coordinates with Operations in running the Tachyon beam to scan for other cloaked ships. ONLY Tactical may detect ships in the vicinity. (I.E. Tactical has ship-to-ship sensors, not ship-to-shore sensors, which are at Operations).

In the absense of Security officers, Tactical handles all intruders and away team security.
