No force in the 'verse

"I would like to nominate "No force in the 'verse" this month. Science departments can become such an underused department on any sim in my opinion. I really enjoyed reading a glimpse into the department and what they are doing, while some of us are playing cowboy on the bridge. I also loved the way these two characters interact with each other in this post. Now I want more from the two of them."

"No force in the 'verse" really grabbed with the portrayal of deep emotion. Both PCs struggled to find comfort and to know how much to involve M'ndi during the mission. Their decisions set up some great storytelling during this mission."

"No force in the verse deserves recognition. I liked how it built personal commitment into a heavy science / med mission and I can't wait to see what happens"

"At its heart, Star Trek is about people. M'ndi and Desai shared a wonderful, challenging, personal situation. It really was an outstanding post"

Breakfast With A Side Of Discomfort

"Gantt's motivation to join Starfleet, to learn more about his Bajoran heritage, comes back beautifully in this JP. I loved all the little touches of excellent writing: apt body language, on point descriptions, natural dialogue, and windows into his and his family's personalities. It made me want to read more about Gantt's personal journey on the Firebird."

"My choice for Outstanding Post goes to "Breakfast with a side of Discomfort." This award is well-deserved despite loosing Savin because of the outstanding character development we see in Gantt. From the keen description of smells and taste, to the shared insight about making others carry out his plans, it is a great post that made me want to be sitting at the next table."

"Breakfast With A Side of Discomfort was a very well written, revealing post. Well done!"

Do No Harm

"I would like to nominate the ‘Do No Harm’ series of posts. They were really a joy to read, highlighting each and every writer and their respective characters. I thought the interactions were wonderfully written to tell a great story."

"For all the writers in Do No Harm, for the human way they approached the tense and terrifying reality that turned the Monterey's crew into a science lab. This was the heart of Mission 2 and they nailed it. All the combat would have been half as meaningful without the desire to save those people."

"Do No Harm. There were a lot of great JPs at the end of Mission 2, but none brought as many authors together as smoothly and with as much impact as "Do No Harm." Desai plotted the whole JP out very well with opportunities that all 7 writers contributed uniquely to. I felt like each character's personality stood out well from the others, which is hard to do when they're all in the same room. Each scene was smart and memorable in its own way and the built together to the ending we've all been working toward when they woke up the first member of the captive crew."

"The Do No Harm series is my selection for Outstanding Post. In every story, there is a climax. The point where all of the things that have come before come to fruition. The point where the marine enters the laboratory in Do No Harm, is that moment. It hammers home the reality of what the crew of the Monterey has suffered for twenty years. It raises the stakes. All of the descriptions were elegantly written and each writer was crucial to the story flowing forward. Kudos!"

The Warrior Plant

"I am nominating Stern and Lak's The Warrior Plant thread. It was entertaining to read, developed both characters as well as their relationship, and I just enjoyed the idea of a plant that responds to command and diction."

"The Warrior Plant" stood out for me this week in large part because the hikaru kept slumping down. Seriously funny and clever, without sacrificing character development and long term plot related content. Yelling at a plant that only responds to certain languages? Genius. We overuse 'lol', but I did laugh out loud while reading this post."

"For the Warrior Plant story, just because it was the most enjoyable."

Stood Up.

This post received a number of nominations and they are well deserved. The depth of emotion revealed on both sides was just superb. I am pleased to see that my fellow crew recognized the work that went into crafting this post. Here are a few of the comments from the nominations:

"Stood up, was one of the most fun posts I have ever written. The depth of the relationship built in the time on the ship has built to this form in the road. I'm waiting to see where it will go."

"Brian had an amazing week, especially: Capt. Mox, Zabu Stew, Stood Up. He did a great job in all of them and is handling the pressure Jackson is under very well"

"Stood Up. This was an intense moment and very defining for the characters and their relationship."

"Jackson and Ina are in a complex, sincere relationship that has been building for a while now. Their writing is true to both their characters and each other."

Honor the Fallen

"Honor the Fallen was an awesome post with lots of great interaction from many characters. Nice job, all!"

"Honor the Fallen. This was a nice post to see how each person dealt with the death of one of their own. It showed a lot about each individual character."

"Honor the Fallen. A touching post with lots of brushes of character from everyone. "

"I feel that this post displays the very heart of Firebird. The coming together of a disparate group of entities to mourn the loss of a member. The connections that have grown between characters reflecting the connections between the players. If it is necessary to choose one person for the award, then I choose Luka who in her character has taken on the joys and sufferings of the crew in a singular person. As the Linguist she bridges the gaps between characters and gives the ship a central focus."

I'd like to add a little to this as well. I went and re-read this JP and it really has an emotional impact. The fact that the NPC who died was really an unknown before his death, makes it all the more powerful. Everyone added their part to the JP and it is incredibly emotional. I thank all of you for your efforts on this post. It really does represent each of us and the Firebird well.

A Rough Landing (Llwyedd, Smith)

"Rough Landing was a culmination of Jackson's story. Finally becoming a full fledged member of the crew and almost not having to keep any secrets from the rest of the crew. As his new job might give him some new ones to keep."

"Rough Landing was a really compelling piece of work and Jackson has a super interesting thing going on with his character history."

"A Rough Landing Loved it. The suspense. The Twist. Really good work."

"I feel that this post displays the very heart of Firebird. The coming together of a disparate group of entities to mourn the loss of a member. The connections that have grown between characters reflecting the connections between the players. If it is necessary to choose one person for the award, then I choose Luka who in her character has taken on the joys and sufferings of the crew in a singular person. As the Linguist she bridges the gaps between characters and gives the ship a central focus."

I'd like to add a little to this as well. I went and re-read this JP and it really has an emotional impact. The fact that the NPC who died was really an unknown before his death, makes it all the more powerful. Everyone added their part to the JP and it is incredibly emotional. I thank all of you for your efforts on this post. It really does represent each of us and the Firebird well.

"Honor the Fallen was an awesome post with lots of great interaction from many characters. Nice job, all!"

"Honor the Fallen. This was a nice post to see how each person dealt with the death of one of their own. It showed a lot about each individual character."

"Honor the Fallen. A touching post with lots of brushes of character from everyone. "

"This post was the culmination of a lot of work. It is difficult to write a joint JP with so many characters and also involved combat. It also is unique because it brought two separate stories, Yumi's and Smith/ Soto/ Kipp, together. The award is well deserved."
-Malcom Llwyedd

"Eye of the Storm 4: ...Out! was an awesome thrillride. Cool setting, great action scene, spot-on dialog. Very exciting and I loved it. There were so many great posts this time it was hard to pick, but this one earned my POW vote."
-Luka Stern

"I thought Jackson was excellent in Eye of the Storm 4. His fight scene was well executed and he showed tremendous fight against a superior opponent. Way to battle!"

A Rising Storm

I enjoyed the argument between the Cardassian, especially the way they both heard the call of war but had different responses to it. The storm was a nice eerie backdrop. It made me want for us to race the Firebird out there to stop them ASAP!
