Welcome to the USS Lionheart, a Star Trek sim taking place in the year 2382. The Romulans have taken their first hesitant steps towards peace with the other great powers of the Alpha and Beta Quadrants. The Klingon Empire is stable. Cardassia continues its long, slow march towards post war reconstruction and The Borg have not been heard from since Voyager's return. All seems at peace.
And sadly that is when peace is at its most fragile...

So while we're still going to use the Discord server I feel it might be more useful to talk to people live rather than post announcements. Some people don't seem to be using it much and I'm not sure how often they come on Discord, and I don't want to make people feel like they absolutely have to log on once a day or something. So I will probably be making news item posts through the Nova site more often than not.
First, we have another new player, John. John is another one of those guys I've gamed with before, we go back a long way and I'm happy to be able to play with him again.
Second, I'm going to try and get more Tour items up on the web site. Speaking of the web site, have you guys checked out the game's soundtrack in the Wiki section? I've definitely gone for an 80s vibe there.
That's about it for now. I know I have a joint post or two to catch up on, I'll be doing that this weekend.

The player running Stenn has decided the sim was not for them. What I had in mind was his character running an investigation regarding the ship's practical joker and we could not come to an agreement about it. They wanted to know the nature of the practical joker beforehand, I wanted it to remain a mystery that should be uncovered through an investigation.
Just so we are clear, I am not going to divulge every aspect of the game; there are going to be mysteries that need to be solved. I have an excellent idea where the game is going and that destination can be affected by player actions. But I'm not going to give up entire plot points like that.
Anyway, that player seems to be a nice person and the split was amicable. We will move on.

Alia Year 3 - Singing
[[I make several assumptions here though I believe ones based on what we've seen in the series(es). Though simulated experiences are easy (I'm quite sure they had holo-shows/recordings long before they had interactive holodecks.) REAL performances are still of keen interest. Especially on TNG, we've…
