It was difficult out there at first.
I was on a new ship, with new people, and new things to learn. Of course, as a cadet, I was getting used to that.
But I was assigned weapons – one station that I knew I could handle.
So there I was. My second favorite station on a ship that was confident, thinking I could happily nuke everything in range.
Boy, was I wrong.
It started with the targetting. About 3 different people were talking at once and “Aim at Alpha six-seven” was lost in “Power to shields and beams” and “Frequency Bravo Bravo”. I fumbled, managed to swap to manual, clicked the wrong ship, and forgot to raise the shields.
We were hammered.
The last thing I heard before I blacked out was, “Beams at 0%, rear shield down, front shield at 0%, heavy damage to hallways.”29/01/2017 at 21:28 #20207
I woke up about 10 seconds later, with the ship I was on, the Hunter, seeming to be perfectly fine.
Then the fun started.
I don’t know how we did it. Our ship came round the back of the lines and tore through the Caltron ships, with Senaries having no weapons and the Primaries dust. I felt like I was one with the manual systems – they and I were a single being.
Our engineer was a god – throughout the fight our shields never dipped below 25%. My beams seemed to rip through enemies like Chuck Norris swims through land.
And our comms officer… somehow got half the Caltrons to surrender. One being barely scratched by a chance homing.
Even as we fought, science was scanning away, getting frequencies so fast it was like he could see the future.
This was truly how it felt to be part of a first-class crew of TSN.

//One small suggestion: naming the crew you were with seems to please people, so you might want to add that in future logs. 🙂30/01/2017 at 18:47 #20272

// If you were wondering, referencing my own screenshot, it looks like the Hunter had the following crew:
Lt. Cmdr. Aramond
Lt. Sr. Hall

//Funny thing is that our engineer on that run, Cdt. Royce, is my RL roommate. I’m debating if I should tell him about the “god” comment. XD04/02/2017 at 06:01 #20552Matthew VajParticipant
