Heidy breaks the Fourth Wall…. Just a little. Entirely not serious.
I finally finished the boring and frustrating Omega Event grind and got the Bajoran Interceptor for all my toons. While I have no intention of flying it, any ASS card is good and the console that comes with it looks pretty useful… especially on Phaser builds and I have 3 toons who can benefit from it. Anyway, I may talk about them another day, but today, something I idly wrote over lunch break…
“Sir! We’ve lost aft shields! We have hull breaches in section 10 thru 12 on decks 4, 5 and 6. Emergency structural force fields are up but I don’t know how long they’ll hold!”
Lt. Adam Kunzel didn’t even have time to acknowledge the report as an explosion made the ship lurch violently to the side. He barely managed to hang on to the captain’s chair, but both his navigator and comms officer were thrown off their seats.
“Fire aft torpedoes full spread!” He barked to his tactical officer, who was thankfully clinging to his console, then turned to his helmsman. “Then make a hard bank to port, see if we can shake them loose.”
“Aye sir.” Ensign Collins called back. Ensign Shyant only nodded a silent acknowledgement without taking her eyes off her console — Adam privately hoped that the young Andorian helmsman’s fancy flying could take them out of the mess.
And indeed, what a mess it was.
I have mentioned my Bajoran toon Kala Kendris a few times in the past, although I have tweaked her appearance and backstory quite a bit since then (she is no longer a Wonder Woman surrogate). She is a Federation Engineer (the original intend was to round out my main Fed toons: Heidy is a Sci, T’Leia a Tac, and Kala is the Eng), but has been overshadowed a bit by Admiral Brown. That said she is at the endgame point even though her build isn’t completely optimized, and she is lacking some crucial pieces of gear and traits etc.
I made a couple of these posters for two of my toons, Heidy and Congilla. Self-explanatory, and summarizes everything about them in one neat page! Just posted the one for Congilla on STO Reddit, too!
As if it’s not obvious, I like to daydream about my gaming characters, give them background stories, their friends and foes, and occasionally write fiction about them. This is especially true with my STO characters, because Star Trek is such a well-developed setting, so today I just want to do a simple and brief update on what my various Federation toons are in the current game setting.
After much contemplation, I’m finally going to start dipping my toes in the world of MMO Roleplay. I intend to take it slow, and going to start off with not one of my main toons on Guild Wars 2, but a low level one I’m slowly leveling. Here’s the profile I put together for her.
