USS Phoenix is obviously a nod to the Phoenix, Cochran's vessel, and humanity's first warp capable craft.
And if not...you might want to at least have it say so on the dedication plaque. lol Because otherwise it might be confusing IC. ^_^
Such a wise woman you are!
and according to this Betazoid joined the Federation in 2273
Whether 2269 on Memory Alpha or 2273, it doesn't matter. They're in and relatively new. :)
Why do enlisted members have to be Federation world members? The US military and others such as the British allow foreigners to serve as long as they speak the right language, are qualified and take the respective oaths all she needs to be is known to the Federation as a race. That was the case for some time before the games start. Officers only need a sponsor who is a command rank officer to try to get into the Academy aka Nog I suspect unless the race is a big question mark (enemies of the Federation or something) it shouldn't matter for someone enlisting.
She has good reasons its a reliable career path with a force for good (a meaningful life), likely offers people like her a nice pension after her thirty and a top technical education frankly for her as an eighteen year old apprentice on a trading ship seemed like a better deal overall. It shouldn't be an issue in her case.
And the Trill merchants had Earth in the standard trade routes so they did have contact. If I couldn't work it out I wouldn't want to be one.
They don't. See Ebony's very good explanation. :)
Thanks! I will wait and see what positions are and aren't taken and see what I can take. If you need a good First Officer (Number One!) I can pull that off rather well. I can also easily have her duo has Navigation or Weapons if those bridge stations are not occupied! I am thinking of playing either an Andorian, a Human, or with GM's approval an Orion.
I vote to keep it on a Constitution class ship. I, personally like the design and layout of the 'Connie' over the Miranda. But like any good Starfleet Officer I'll go where I am posted!
Oh! And a good 'background' explanation... While usually on citizens from Federation member worlds can apply to Starfleet Academy citizens of non-member wolds can take the placement test if they have a letter of referral or such from a Starfleet officer, or other Federation official.
We already decided on a Connie refit. Layout is in accordance with Mr. Scott's Guide to the Enterprise. I will put it all on the info thread.
As to XO, just might, Ebony and from what I've heard about you from an unnamed source, you'd be a wonderful fit. PM me, if you would, please. I'm trying to get a 2 year old in bed after Girl Scout cookies just arrived.
Peace, joy, happiness and we will work all this out. :)
Flatter the GM about his hair and he will likely let you have a klingon.
No Klingons, no matter how much my hair is flattered. Worf is the first on any Federation vessel.
