Sim Updates

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US! HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR ELYSIUM CREW! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US!
On Feb 27th We turned 1. Not bad for a sim taken over because the then XO didn't want to loose the ship and the story lines - Also no one else would take the character so... but thank you to SHARR who let me take his baby and make it mine. I hope my crew and I can keep it going for many more years to come!

All crew received a special created ribbon for the occasion.

Crew Updates

We did loose three players, our Intelligence Instructor, Our Marine CO and our Medical Instructor/Medical officer this month, due to lack of posting and general 'don't wanna write'. These things happen and we take them on the chin. They are welcome back anytime...

That said over the past few days we have gained, a Marine CO, a Marine XO and have a bio pending with two other players in discussion to join. (That is as long as I can keep them away from my crazy crew long enough for me to convince them we are sane)

12 month Service award - Commander Gary Taylor, executive officer: As my wonderful Executive Officer, Commander Taylor has exceeded my expectations. He has worked hard over the past 12 months to make Elysium what it is today!

12 month Service award - Commander Liselle Qwyyn Our chief of Flight Control- A long time player with a wealth of experience, Commander Qwyyn has worked hard to maintain her department and has been a key player on the Elysium since I took command. I am grateful she came with me and that she has stuck around. Many thanks to her!

We have had numerous Golden Scrolls nominated and awarded over the past two months. The current mission is really pushing their creativity. These I would highly recommend a read: http://uss-elysium.com/nova/index.php/wiki/view/page/81

Story Elements

Current mission FACE TO FACE

A story told in 3 Sections

Section One: Prime Crew - The Elysium’s crew go about their day to day, running supplies to the USS Starling. BORING I hear you say, but sometimes normal can be fun. Two of the senior staff volunteered to host a party for the newly promoted CO and Academy Commandant. The CO is suffering in silence after the rupture of her private life and a wild night drinking on SB Gamma with her best friend. So she is in no real mood for a party. After their Rendezvous with the Starling they are heading on a First contact mission, to seek out new life and new civilizations. What’s this debris over this uncharted planet? -ALMOST COMPLETED

Section 2: Temporal Crew - Everything was normal, until something hit the ship and sent it spinning into a planet. Not only that, it flung them 10 years into the past. With a high loss of life, and no way off the planet they have no choice but to try and survive. The crew are writing their characters over a ten year span, who lives, who dies, who has children with who... _ ALMOST COMPLETED

Section 3: The Finale - The crew find themselves looking at themselves on the strange planet. What happens then? Who will freak and who will find closure for past events and hurts. (This will go live in the next couple of weeks) I foresee a number of loud comments when they find each other - along the lines of “I MARRIED WHO?” -
“WHAT DO YOU MEAN I AM DEAD?” - and my fav “YOU ARE MY ... WHAT? TWINS?!?!? WHO DID I PISS OFF!?!?”
"WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU ARE SLEEPING WITH MY LITTLE SISTER!?!!"
- GOES LIVE 2/3/18

Now is an exciting time to join the Elysium and her wacky crew.

Other plots: The Prime crew are settling in. The new crew transferred over on MD3 of the mission and are slowly adjusting to our band of lunatics.

The Captain is trying to kill her EX with jealousy.
Her sister is facing boy trouble at 14!
The Chief of Flight Control and the Chief of Security are determined to have a long conversation around the Trill's unrequited feelings for the XO, who has locked onto the Chief of security.. for safety maybe?
There was a promotion party... and some people are doing walks of shame in MD3...

TEMPORAL Subplots:

Cassandra and Yanalla work to build the 1st Born on their planet's confidence.
Liam, leads the teens on a midnight hike. His goal? The Wreak of the USS Elysium!
Daniel is plotting against his Irish twin sister Cassandra.
Liselle JR is struggling to be more than herself.
Gary and Liselle SR combat each other over Liselle's choice to let Aurelia die in the crash.
Wynter and Jaeih are discovering very interesting things about themselves and their children in this brave new world.
Ian and Arrianna fight, make up, fight again, get married!

So plots abound!

Just a SHOUT OUT to the following players for their hard work and dedication:

Jeff AKA Commander Gary Taylor
Ayesha AKA Commander Aurelia Holmes
Willow AKA Commander Liselle Qwyyn
Sar AKA Lieutenant Arrianna Salannis an Vantar
Mike AKA Lieutenant Ian Murphy

These players work hard to include everyone in their plots and they have taken the current mission and run with it. Without these players, the Elysium would be an empty vessel orbiting a lonely star somewhere. These players also keep our discord going where they greet new players *Grabs Arri and mutters 'Put the pitch fork down'* and are friendly to all!
