USS Portland – November 5, 2018http://ussportland.net/
Task Force 47, Task Force 47 Command
I've been working on the new website, but ran into a lot of compatibility issues on the back end. I've got them mostly sorted out now, however, but the skin for my forum is still facing compatibility issues, so I'm just running the old, kind of ugly, default skin at the moment.
No major updates
Focusing on the back end right now, do have plans for a future mission where Meru catches a virus on a diplomatic mission to an undersea world. I've fleshed it out. Said virus will mutate her into a water-breathing basically mermaid, and it's up to the rest of the crew to suit up in scuba suits and aquashuttles and investigate.
Basically, this planet used to be a land planet, but facing global warming and rising sea levels as the ice caps melted, instead of trying futilely to reverse climate change, they genetically modified themselves to live underwater, with some sort of genetic modification that could be passed on to the entire population easily via a virus or something and spread it around. This virus has lain dormant for a while, and Meru seems to have caught it somehow.
Meanwhile, the planet is facing some issues of pollution in the water, etc., so that is another issue for the crew to explore.
I think when the new forum goes live, which should be soon, I will kick things off with a costume party, at which point Meru will be interrupted by an admiral informing her of the mission and asking her why she is dressed as a pirate.
