If anyone who hasn't posted already in From the Ashes and wants to cover something with their characters, please do so as soon as possible since tomorrow, a post is coming up which will progress the story in the Chapter and open up for Supplemental Threads! :)

NEW DEVELOPMENT IN FROM THE ASHES, CHOOSE YOUR CHARACTER'S FATE!

Here it is, the conclusion of the first battle:

From the Ashes

Everyone needs to post in the Plot Discussion thread, stating whether or not they want their character on:

A) ...this "suicide" mission on the Allegiant, described in the last post, or...

B) ...if they want to stay behind, and deal with both repairs and the surviving Asurians, who will break out eventually.

So, depending on what you like to write (ship-based or exploratory), the OOC choice is free, whereas the IC choice could either be your character(s) volunteering, or being ordered to come along for some plausible reason. The full crew complement, which can be adjusted, is this: 10 officers, including the Commanding officer, a Helmsman, an Operations officer, a Tactical officer, a Communications officer, an Engineering officer, some kind of Mission specialist (Ensign Six, in this case), a Medical officer & 2 Security officers.

Here are the characters you have to make a choice for:

Vector 03 - Stallion Battle Bridge Staff

Commanding Officer: Natalie Stark @Brutus
Executive Officer: Zelosa Ejek @FollowTomorrow
Tactical: Lt. Masuda Yukimura (Auctor Lucan) @Auctor Lucan
CONN: MCPO Mala Kariko (NPC) + PO3 Lillee t'Jellaieu @Griff
Operations: Lieutenant JG Yvette Conway (NPC)
Science: Cir'Cie @StarDuster
Off bridge:
(Main Engineering): Billy Bob O'Connell @Doc M.
(Security): Ens. Mariner + Ens. Six @Triton & @Multificionado
(Medical): EMH Mk II
(Counseling): B'Nila (Injured) @Absinthe

USS Cayuga Crew

Commanding Officer: Anya Ziegler @Arista
Executive Officer: West (NPC)
Tactical: Salem Martin @Masorin
CONN: Mektari Dumral @Gadget
Operations: CPO Ekon Okotie-Eboh @Fife
Science: Vanya @Veridian
Off bridge:
(Main Engineering): Lieutenant Kaylon Jeen @alphawiz
(Security): Winter Bannin (NPC, KIA?)
(Medical): T'Panu @lisavw
(Counseling): Lt. Rhys Williams @Juzzie
(Civilian): Iris Cyrene, a Ryn Diplomat  (NPC)

(I hope I am not forgetting anyone)

Post your choice here! Except for Multi, of course, who has to be on the Allegiant since she can track the Borg. :)

Best,

Auctor Lucan

Oh, I can't wait! :D

I think it makes sense for Ziegler to stay ship-side.

I also have ideas on which who should go where, but I'll leave that for other writers to decide where they should put their characters

Ejek would be utterly useless on the away mission. She's staying shipside, unless someone has a better idea

Edited:

I'll have Chief Eboh volunteer for the away mission.

His people were wiped out by the Borg, so if there's a mission that may protect other from that threat, he'd probably volunteer to prevent other races suffering the same fate.

He's also (unsuccessfully) fought the Borg twice, so he's got a bit of experience with what they're potentially heading into.

As with Ziegler so too with Natalie - she's in command of the Stallion and her place is on the ship.

Oh this should be fun! Mektari will definitely volunteer to fly the mission, she would be of more use there than she would on repair teams.

If there's enough weapons, gear and equipment aboard to stick it to the Borg, Jimmy's interested in the Aerowing mission. He already feels somewhat honor-bound to apologize to Cayuga crew for impersonating an Officer to gain their trust. Aboard, he would then give an outsider's take on Theurgy in their favor during the flight out.

If there's a break-out on the Stallion itself with the Asurians, is it possible to use/make/borrow an NPC to participate in the team that will deal with that threat? Mariner himself would opt for the exploration option. .

Looks like we got ourselves another time skip.  I recommend that we share ideas for any character development or shared scenes that involve any of our characters in the meantime before the window closes and the plot recommences.  We can then see if any of our ideas intersect and can contact each other and get those threads started.  I'll start off:

The only character I have in Vector 03 is Billy Bob O'Connell, but as acting chief engineer he could participate in a scene aboard either ship (that likely involves repairs).  If sent to the Cayuga his first scene aboard would no doubt be checking in with Anya Ziegler, the Cayuga's CO and the Theurgy's former XO.  This would give him a chance to reunite with Ekon Okotie-Eboh and reminisce (and provide exposition) on Ekon's unique career and how long it took for him to get recommended to take the Chief's exam.  And of course it would allow O'Connell to personally update player characters (such as Kaylon Jeen) on past events and what REALLY happened at Starbase 84.

I encourage other players to make suggestions for their characters on this thread and we'll see if any of our ideas coincide.  Looking forward to hearing from you.

I highly doubt that B'Nila will be any use on this away mission in her current state, and given that I don't think anyone would even ask her to go, I am betting she will remain in Sickbay for a while longer.

That's an interesting insight, Doc. :) Perhaps it would be a chance for Six to make new friends, depending on how many are afraid of/intimidated by her.

I was just about to get that bucket back together again when the damn ram heads started tearing it apart again.
No way is Kaylon going anywhere but maybe into a few Jeffries tubes.  :)

Well, freshman Bila would volunteer for the mission, science must be done, and he would made it

Lillee would volunteer to fly the mission, primarily since it's quite clearly a 'good guys' mission to avoid all the moral complexity back on the Stallion and Cayuga. And because Lillee is just about crazy enough to volunteer for a mission tracking the Borg when assimilation can happen at any time.

I'd like to volunteer T'Panu for the mission since you will all need a medical officer and her previous dealing with the Borg!

I think Rhys would stay on the ship. It would make most sense for his character and there would be more for him to do.

So it looks like there's seven or eight (including Six) volunteers so far (been counting, of course).

Re: Plot Discussion | EP05 CH03 From the Ashes

Since Ziegler and Stark remain on their ships, Masuda will lead the mission with Martin at Tactical. We can't have a single CONN officer, since the two would need to sleep too, so both Lillee and Mektari should come along as well, along with the rest of the volunteers. :)

Best,

Auctor Lucan
