Greetings All! This is a hail from Captain Erica Stark
Just a quick note to let you all know that our usual Friday night RPG game will NOT be happening this month. Our Retributor GM’s have a family commitment that night. (Silly peoples, thinking a birthday is more important.)
Don’t be discouraged, however. We will still be having a game night that night, but it will be a board-game night, instead. All other details will remain the same.
Held at Kathy Campbell’s home, beginning at 7:00 pm.
If you have a favorite board game, please bring it along.
Any questions? Email me. I’m sure I can come up with an answer.
If you happen to see Justin Rouviere, in person or online, wish him a happy b-day.
See you all on Friday.
Just a quick reminder, the next USS Ticonderoga meeting will be on Wednesday the 13th at 7:00pm. This will be at our usual spot at the Weber County Library on 25th and Jefferson in Ogden. Don’t forget to bring a show-n-tell and a friend. Do we want to go out for dinner afterwards?
Also we held our last USS Ticonderoga RPG earlier this month. The question I want to know from everyone is what would you do when the announcement came over the speakers that we have accidentally entered Romulan space? We had a massive overload of power get dumped into the engines and we had to eject the primary warp core to stop. Unfortunately we still careened into enemy territory and we now have a Romulan fleet racing towards our position. On top of that we still have the unknown entity that has been taking over Vulcans and causing the technical problems.
So what would your character do?
As you all know, the crew of the USS Retributor has been putting together the Seventh Fleet RPG using the Decipher Star Trek RPG rules. For the past several months we have been putting together characters and Captain Stark has been getting fleet updates of adventures that our fellow chapters have been going through. On Friday we finally had a chance to sit down and game an adventure set up for the USS Ticonderoga. Several crew members were in attendance with their own characters and Captain Rouviere (who was our game master) was prepared with several pre-generated characters for those who showed up. We had a mixture of RPG veterans and those just getting a taste of Role Playing. The crew had a blast.
Currently we are headed at top speed to the Romulan Neutral Zone in response to a possible Romulan incursion. There is a lot more happening on the ship as well.
If you participated in the game on Friday, please post a report from your character in the comments section. If you are working on a character or if you would like to make a character, please post in the comments what you would like that character to be (name, race, special features, etc.) We are looking to hold another game soon and we have several volunteers who can help you put your character together.
Here is a note from the Executive Officer about the June USS Ticonderoga meeting:
Many thanks to those of you who braved the rain to join us at our little picnic. We had fun, and lots of kids got wet. =)
To those of you who participated in the Ticonderoga RPG run for us by the USS Retributor, please send me your mission logs. (If you played one of the pre-made characters and can’t recall your character’s name, son;t worry about it.) Tell me what you did, and please indicate where you left off. =) I intend to compile all of them and we will use them to bring everyone up to speed when we have our next game session. I don’t know yet when that will be. As soon as it can be coordinated, I will let you all know. =)
Many thanks also to Capt. Rex Rouviere and the crew of the Retributor for running the game, and playing with us. =)

X.O., U.S.S. Ticonderoga
Additional notes: Congratulations go out to Lt. (j.g.) Tim Madden for being named June Crewmember of the Month. Tim has worked hard for several years on the USS Ticonderoga website and will be missed when he moves his family to Nebraska this summer. Also we had orders given out to a new crewmember, a recruit returned for her second meeting (and will receive her orders next month). We also had a new recruit show up to check us out (he was brought by a friend who will earn 10 Leadership Points for him when he receives his orders) . I also wanted to welcome the crewmembers who had not been to to a meeting in years. It was good to see you.
Captain Carl Stark
