    Default [Star Trek Adventures] USS Bernard: Mission to Corachaidd

    Welcome to the OCC thread for Mission to Corachaidd. Our heroes are the intrepid crew of the USS Bernard, a venerable Excelsior-class ship dispatched on an urgent diplomatic mission.

    IC thread




    The planet of Corachaidd is located in neutral space between the Cardassian Union and the Federation. The local government has arrested several independent traders and contact has been lost with the Federation embassy. Starfleet fears the worst and has called on a retired diplomat familiar with the Coranneit Union to resolve the situation.

    The Bernard's mission is threefold:
    1. Secure the embassy.
    2. Observe the trial of the independent traders.
    3. Avoid a diplomatic incident with the Cardassian Union.


    The Crew
    Captain Vrelek Thran
    Lt. Commander T'Loran, First Officer

    Lt. Xani Kuschei

    Lt Phlal

Phlal is warm and approachable but has little time for the overly emotional.

    Lt. Gullerg Wekrer

    Lt. Yvonne Dobson reporting for duty in Engineering!

    Spoiler: Character Sheet
    Show
    Lt. Yvonne Dobson

    BACKSTORY
    Yvonne Dobson was not born on Earth or on a colony, but rather among the stars. Her home for most of her youth was aboard the 'Venture', a very small trading vessel her parents owned that had been converted from an old garbage scow. She learned a lot about spaceships during that time as the family traveled from planet to planet, sometimes hauling cargo and sometimes selling goods. Her father, William Dobson, was the smooth talker who handled negotiations with potential partners while her mother, Marianne, handled the heavy lifting and taking care of the Venture.

    Through both necessity and an intense interest in the subject, Yvonne learned all about how to keep a ship going when spare parts just weren't an option. Sometimes that meant scavenging or removing components from non-essential systems to keep the very much essential systems running. Sometimes it meant coming up with an unorthodox solution on the fly. While her mother taught everything she knew to Yvonne about repairing a spaceship, it didn't take long for the student to become the master.

    And though the Venture had been her home, the older Yvonne got, the smaller it seemed that little scow seemed to become. She wanted to travel, she wanted to explore the stars and see all the amazing things that were out there. It was no wonder then that she wanted to join Starfleet. Over the years, her parents had saved up a tidy little sum that they could retire on, taking Yvonne to the nearest Starfleet Recruitment Center before finding a quiet colony to enjoy the fruits of their years of hard work.

    While her general education was lacking in a few places, Yvonne's raw potential, particularly with engineering matters, was enough to convince the Academy's recruiters to give her a chance. Fully aware of the risk being taken with her, she made every effort to prove her worth in Starfleet Academy. During that time, she more than impressed her instructors on several occasions. Once, during a seemingly routine run aboard a training vessel, the ship suffered a nearly catastrophic system failure. With some quick thinking, Yvonne was able to keep the warp engine from going critical and prevent a disaster.

    At the Academy, Yvonne developed the nickname of "Chopper" due to her penchant for taking apart old, discarded, or replaced equipment to construct useful devices or upgrades to existing systems. Apart from her studies, Yvonne also found opportunity to engage in extracurricular activities like wrestling, gymnastics, as well as practicing her mother's martial arts training in the Savate club. Despite a few dangerous situations, nothing too unusual for Starfleet Academy's training, Yvonne has recently graduated and eagerly awaits to see what ship she will be assigned to.

    Personality: Mostly 'Vulcan', but with the default behavior changed from 'blank, logical, stoic' to 'faintly amused, logical, stoic'. It's probably quite jarring to see a Vulcan sport a faint grin... but contrary to popular belief, the act of smiling doesn't make them melt!
    Appearance: T'Loran appears to be a heavily tanned Caucasian woman. In truth, she's quite pale by her family's standards - growing up on Andoria rather than Vulcan left it's mark on her. Due to Vulcan longevity, she also looks a lot younger than she is - humans who don't check the rank pips (or first see her out of uniform) will often mistake the Lieutenant Commander (in her 40s) for an Ensign (in her 20s).

    T'Loran is 1.9m tall and very slim - between their more-powerful-for-their-size muscles and high Will Saves vs Snack Food, Vulcans tend to be slimmer on average than similarly built humans anyway. Her hair is dark, wavy, and rather abruptly cut off just above the shoulders. It's typically worn loose, leaving it free to cover her ears.

    Relationships:
    Rank and Role: Lt. Commander, Ops Officer (probably also doubles up as 1st officer, looking at the relative ranks of the other active-duty members of the bridge crew, but her primary role will be Ops)

    Needless to say, I'm taking on the five of you as players.

    Do you want me to populate the upper ranks of the crew a bit? Yvonne's backstory and Kor's exchange officer status demand superiors in Engineering and Security, at least.

    In that case, I may promote T'Loran to full Commander, so the other department heads can be Lieutenant Commanders without threatening her spot as First Officer

    EarthenRite: I counted the stats for each character - Cap'n Thran seems to be 2 attribute and 2 department points short compared to the others.

    As to why I noticed that: Behold, the comparison table!

    Character Control Daring Fitness Insight Presence Reason Command Conn Engineering Security Science Medicine
    Captain Vrelek Thran 11 10 7 7 11 8 5 3 1 3 1 1

    That could be rather interesting. I had some ideas for some holodeck recreation Vrelek might participate in.
