Hey all,

So, I was thinking today. The Fleet Council just had a proposal laid before it, and while I can't discuss the details, I was thinking that we could adapt this to the Shanghai. I have a rough outline of the plan, but I figured that anyone who wanted to could look at it, comment on it, and read it. Therefore, I'm going to put it on Google Docs today. If you'd like to look at my idea (it essentially turns the ship into a colony, then back to a ship), then please email me or PM me, and I'll add you to the list.

I'm excited for this I think that it (if approved) will be a great way to turn the simm, and great for character development as well. I hope that you all will find the below excerpt intriguing enough to join with me on this to make it the best mission/story arc that we can think of.


The Shanghai is sent as an escort on a long-range survey mission in the Gamma quadrant. Accompanying them is the USS Salk, a Nova class surveyor. They have a directive from Starfleet: Find and acquire a system for the express purpose of resettling special groups that request amnesty from the Federation. They move through the Bajorian Wormhole, and set out in a direction towards the center of the galaxy.

Along the way, they encounter many systems, but none that have an uninhabited class M planet. In system J-94821A, the Shanghai and the Salk find a planet, seemingly uninhabited that is perfect for their needs. The planet has a super-dense atmosphere, and scans that penetrate it are weak and garbled.

Unfortunately, the reason why this system wasn't settled soon becomes apparent. For about 10-11 months out of the year, a massive ion storm caused by the system's gravitational pull excites a nearby pulsar. The ion storm moves in, and the Shanghai and the Salk move into the planet's atmosphere to try and escape the ion storm. They're stuck. They can't get out.

Now, here comes the colony part. I have a lot of ideas for this part, but I wanted to get your input first. Would you guys be willing, wanting to make a mission or a story arc out of this? I think that it will be very good for the simm, and I want to make sure that we are all on the same page with it. Let me know what you want to do with it!

Hopefully my brainwave is received well.

Anyways, please look to posting shortly, and trying to move this mission along. We're going to rescue the captives soon , and hopefully we will then either A) drop into the Kzinti Joint Mission or B) start another mission that's on the table or C) move towards the colony-esque thing.
