  1. As for as positronic backstories go, I really enjoy this one - it shows how IPCs are an oppressed group in lore while having their own desires, shows a fairly atypical background for an IPC (most seem to be involved in an industrial or security setting, judging by recent backstories), and the answers given demonstrate an understanding of IPC lore. Combined with your answers to Stryker's questions (I also screwed up the timeline at first, don't worry), I have seen all I need to support this application. Good luck with the rest of the process, and I hope to see Mable alongside the rest of the Aurora's shells soon enough!
  2. This is a very good point. Fire is one of the primary weakness of the titular "thing/thing from out of this world" from The Thing, and it's something that's not really easily accessible for the station's crew unless they go looking for it.
  3. HSF Titáv and NSS Aurora Assaulted by Pirates! A photo of the engagement captured by a member of the NSS Aurora's crew Earlier today Republic of Biesel and Hephaestus Industries authorities reported that the HSF Titáv and NSS Aurora were both attacked by tajaran pirates earlier this weekend. NanoTrasen authorities have confirmed several crew injuries, though names have not been released yet. Security officials with both Hephaestus and NanoTrasen have confirmed the death of several boarders during engagements with the Titáv’s and Aurora’s security wing. Boarders initially assaulted the Titáv as it began to pass through the Romanovich Cloud, managing to hijack one of its cargo shuttles despite efforts made by the security forces of the Titáv. The shuttle, slightly damaged due to fighting that had taken place in its shuttlebay, rapidly lost control and crashed into the NSS Aurora’s asteroid - inflicting severe damage onto the station’s central ring. NanoTrasen authorities have refused to reveal much detail regarding what had ensued aboard the NSS Aurora, however it is known that a skirmish between three different factions of boarders took place. Following a gunfight between several tajarans, the Titáv’s shuttle was relaunched by an unknown party. The shuttle itself was rediscovered by a Tau Ceti Foreign Legion patrol vessel patrolling the Romanovich Cloud several hours later, but was empty of its crew and cargo. A Republic of Biesel official stated that pirates and smugglers were likely to blame, a stance supported by NanoTrasen officials interviewed by the Bugle. In response to the suspicions about the boarders’ allegiances, all three governments of Adhomai have disputed the accusations and claimed the boarders to be simple bandits. The People’s Republic of Adhomai has stated that it will be stepping up its anti-piracy patrols in the region, and has stated its willingness to cooperate with Republic of Biesel and NanoTrasen authorities alike. The New Kingdom of Adhomai’s diplomat in residence for the Republic of Biesel has stated that he is “saddened by how the people’s frustration and economic downturn following the [Second Tajaran Civil] War has caused piracy to be a tragically common lifestyle for this one’s people.” In other news, the Mendell City Police Department’s commissioner for district six has reported a spike in March’s crime rate compared to last month (continued on page 6)...
  4. Yeah, they need pain immunity. As it stands a changeling really has no way to escape from security once the stun baton comes out, making it one of the weakest on-station antagonists.
  5. As per my in-character promise, I am now here. Over several rounds I have both observed and played in - both as command staff and regular staff - Shen has proven herself time and time again to be an effective and engaging head of personnel. It's fascinating to see a head of personnel that has come up from the ranks of cargo in a fairly organic manner. I hope to see Samsara as a head of personnel for months to come, and fully believe that Shen has what is needed to pass her trial with flying colors. +1
  6. These are a huge improvement, frankly.

  7. Our current floor sprites are horrifically dated, and this is a vast improvement. This has my full support.
  8. Hello, supporter of BRAINOS’ sprite here. I stopped objecting to Wezzy’s replacement due to assuming that a version taking in the community’s feedback was being worked on, either by Wezzy or BRAINOS. Since one is, seemingly, not being worked on, I support a full revert to the BRAINOS sprite. The support is there, if we take this thread as evidence.
  9. Cybsthe is somebody I know can provide quality RP in roles they play, and I find their take on a tajara to be very interesting. Any questions I would have asked have already been answered, and this application has my definitive support. +1
  10. I agree with this. Having been there for the head of staff antagonist round Cybs is referring to, I can safely say it was one of the least fun rounds I have ever had: anything and everything that could be used to fight against the combination of an antagonist RD, two antagonist security officers, and two ninjas was rapidly shut down by the hellish array of antagonist armed with the most frightening equipment science could produce and supported by two ninjas. Any coordination done over the radio was shut down by the RD, our PDAs were cut off, security was either imprisoned or murdered, ERT was unavailable, and even an emergency shuttle call seemed to be out of our reach. My other experiences with antagonist heads of staff have been equally unpleasant, ranging from being called into their office for "a discussion of your projects" then walking out with half of my blood missing, watching a RD vampire turn their entire department into a coven, and seeing a traitor CMO implant people in surgery with explosives for reasons beyond the pale. Perhaps the worst part of head of staff antagonists is that they absolutely ruin a department's coordination unless a robusto steps up to the plate and puts their foot down to coordinate a department while lacking authority, command channel access, and access. I'd rather lose the possibility of good on-station head of staff antagonist gimmicks than have to suffer through another round like the one Cybs and I experienced. You can't really coordinate a department and teach its new players while also playing a traitor.
  11. Bereft of my normal opportunity to play Twenty Questions with the applicant, I will simply have to state that your response are good and this has my support. Best of luck! +1
  12. Personally I like departmental security as an officer, since it allows me to be more present in a department rather than just visiting in the lobby or asking to be let inside to enact a warrant. It makes security officers feel more like members of the crew rather than entities that only leave the security office to hunt an antagonist down. It's very nice, and it seems to do a lot to encourage trust in security when your officer isn't an absolute glue-huffing idiot that attempts to arrest engineers for hacking into atmospherics or science for building guns. But I do have some concerns, particularly in regards to the extremely fun experience that is the antagonist security officer. Not only do they have authority and the best armor and tools you can get as a regular member of the crew at round start, now they also have access to most of your department and your radio channel. We had a round last night where two departmental security officers rolled traitor and took it upon themselves to become the Gestapo of the station, and they mostly got away with it since the non-traitor members of security that were still alive were otherwise indisposed. It was an utterly miserable experience to watch a security officer roll into a department loaded to bear with traitor equipment and walk straight through the door, the threaten the (unarmed) department with his traitor revolver and edgy black voidsuit. Overall, however, I like departmental security a lot! Finally, I'd also like to see departmental heads have more control over their officer (particularly on code blue). It's meant to be a departmental security officer, not a security officer that happens to be in your department.
  13. Good responses, this has my support. I particularly like your response to #2, as you haven't jumped straight to the obvious solution of "GET MORE GUNS FROM CARGO AND VALID" and have instead opted to work around your situation in a very interesting manner. Best of luck!
  14. Good responses. This application has my support, and I wish you the best of luck. +1
