Captain’s Log, Stardate: 87958.97

Admiral Bryn Aev, Captain of the U.S.S. Nym Kae

We’ve just completed a patrol of the Arawath Sector. The crew and I are returning via transwarp conduit to Earth Spacedock to resupply before heading to the Gamma Orionis transwarp conduit near Risa. Since we’re going to be in the neighborhood, I thought it would be an excellent time to schedule shore leave for the crew. After spending months in Cardassian space dealing with Jem’Hadar, and now looking forward to months fighting the Borg, a few days on the beaches of Risa should be excellent for morale.

Out of Character…

Bryn made max level, Rear Admiral 5, in Star Trek Online on Sunday night. He still had several missions in his journal from RA1-4 and hadn’t even entered the end-game zone of Gamma Orionis. To celebrate Admirals Longasc and Tipa took Bryn to the Borg infested sector and tried to get him killed in elite-level exploration missions. They succeeded once, but Bryn and the crew of the Nym Kae did pretty well. It took a heavy attack of Undine battleships to trigger the first experience of the new death penalty. Fortunately the Nym Kae suffered only minor damage to it’s sick bay which slowed the pace at which crew men were cleared to return to duty stations.

While not a difficult accomplishment, this is another check mark on my goals for the year just like reaching the level cap in Champions Online.

    Gratz Admiral. Sure does feel good to finally get there. The Exploration missions in Gamma Orionis can be a bit difficult solo, much more so the ground missions which require you to use a bit of tactics to avoid getting run over.

      I was doing the daily mapping mission for the B’Tran Cluster last night and ended up getting two scan 5 anomaly missions and then a ground mission versus Borg. The Borg ground missions do require more tactics and movement than most of the other enemies, but they were still very fun.

    Speaking of anomaly missions and scanning, does anyone else enjoy doing that besides me? Even with Memory Alpha not being useful until the revamp (coming soon), I find the anomaly collection relaxing and fun.
