Welcome to the Langley Station!

We are a Star Trek RPG, set in 2395. We are part of Obsidian Fleet’s Task Group 72 C, the White Tigers.


Langley station is a space station near the old Cardassian demilitarized zone, in orbit of the Lyshan 1 in the Lyshan system. Langley station is categorized as a military waypoint and research station. Next to the standard facilities you’d expect on a station, the station has a large research facility.


We’re not your average RPG. Our main focus is to provide our writer with various opportunities to write. Either with their PC or with a NPC. We focus on character development and collaboration between writers and other RPG’s. We don’t do mission after mission, but we create an open world concept. We’ll be doing mini missions that will focus on something related to the fleet or something related to the development of the station. Most of the time we will collaborate on Character Development. The Command team will function as a mediator between the writers in accomplishing a writers goals.


We are always looking for new writers for various position. Feel free to contact us, or join us on Discord!

Hey all,

In about two hours I'm going on holiday. I let you know on Discord, but just wanted to send out an official message.

I'll be back around the 25th and will be able to tag some. But I don't know how much. Neither will I know how active I will be on Discord.

If there is anything, feel free to PM or ask Caoimhe or Ron.

Sim Updates

This month has been quiet in terms of the site. However our story writing is taken a really positive turn, which should see some nice new story arch’s coming in the following months.

Crew Updates

We have two new members of our crew this month;
A civilian affairs director, by the name of Jason Avery, and a Colony based character, by the name of Nadiya Blackford.

Both of these characters have shown a lot of promise within their writing thus far, and I look forward to seeing what is to come.

We also had two promotions this month, Lt Cmdr Caoimhe O'Connor got promoted to full Commander, and Lt. Anahera Chernova was promoted to Lt. Cmdr. Both of you very well deserved. We also did a round of awards.

Story Elements

Our focus this month has continued to be on our opening ceremony. That being said with the addition of our new characters the story is taking on a few new directions. The main one being that now we have a Colony base PC, the Colony is taking a more centre stage role than it has been just recently.

» Episode 1 - First Dawn

Posted on Mon Jul 9, 2018 @ 10:07am by Captain Kate Banninga in Awards

Hello everyone,

After 8 months we have finally closed of our first mission. It was a great first mission, that absolutely didn't go as I envisioned it at first. We had some amazing stories, got a lot of new friends, and lost a few. Together we've been through some hard times, but we got through and now have a thriving simulation, that I am very proud off. This is really a team effort, I probably wouldn't be here without all of your support and enthusiasm in coming up with new stories.

After the closing of an episode I want to do promotions and a rounds of awards. In recognition of all of your hard work.

Promotions

During this episode I was promoted to Captain, something I didn't give any attention to because when we started I decided to have Kate keep the rank of Captain because a demotion didn't fit her story. As with OF tradition every CO that reaches the 6-month mark get's promoted to Captain.

This round there are two people I want to promote.

Lieutenant Commander Caoimhe O'Conner will be promoted to Commander.
Lieutenant Anahera Chernova will be promoted to Lieutenant Commander.

Both promotions are very well deserved.

Awards

This time the following awards will be given:

Service Citation: For serving on the simulation for more then 6 months.
Kate, Caoimhe, Anahera, Rose and Nehini.

Tour of Duty - Expeditionary: For participation in the simulations first mission.
Kate, Caoimhe, Anahera, Rose, Nehini, Ishresse, Megan, Eliza, Ronald, Kael’ko, Amelia.

Rose award: Ishresse. Her Andorians are so well though written and are a real joy to read. All the background she found/came up with about how the bonds relationship would be is amazing. I can't wait to see this relation develop even further- Kate

Non Player Character Award: Anahera. Ana has given our simulations a lot of very interesting characters, not to even mention an entire ship with characters. All of his NPC's are great and really are well written and thought of - Kate

Newcomer of the Month: Kael'ko. He joined us with such enthusiasm and a great background story for his character - Kate

Whoopi Goldberg diversity ribbon Megan. Even though this award is usually to Alien characters, I want to give this award to Megan. Megan is such a unusual character, a 40+ woman that ends up in the body of a 16 year old by a transporter accident. But she is so well written that its a real joy to read posts with this character involved or interact with her - Kate

Outstanding volunteer award: Ron. Ever since becoming part of the command team Ron has helped us a lot with behind the scenes stuff. Mostly with mission progression, and I'm very grateful for that. Without him we would probably still not have finished episode 1 - Kate

Crew's Choice Award:Ishresse.
For the excellent writing in The Andorians: Baby making - Ron.
A lovely example of interaction with other crew members and encompassing them in character developed and plans so no one is side lined.(Counseling sessions) - Caoimhe
I'll vote for the Andorians. They're always fun to read.(The Andorians: We're going to have a baby!) - Megan

And last but not least

Captain's personal merit: Eliza. Eliza has been a challenge for Kate since she stepped over the station's threshold. She has been ungrateful, rude, disobedient, brake in Kate's office and like that wasn't enough she also held a gun to Kate's face. It's a amazing character, one that will make sure life will never be boring for Kate - Kate

Congratulation everyone! The awards will be added to your account, as well as the OF website soon. Till next round of awards/promotions.

Sim Updates
Nothing major. Just some slight changes to images. We did become one of the guiny pigs for the OF website, I’ve edited our ship page but haven’t gotten much time later on because of my illness. I’ll try to get my crew added to that page this month.

Crew Updates
No new players this month.
That only leaves us with two open department head position and that is that of Director of Civilian Affairs. Someone who is the go to person for all the civilians on the station and who will act as a in between person with Starfleet. And the position of Chief Engineer.
We are off course always looking for more civilians and researchers. We also have almost all assistant department head position open, as well as officer positions.

Story Elements
This month we’ve worked hard and have succeeded, but more about that in next report. Our current mission is progressing as hoped, even with the summer season. Next few months as people will be on holiday we hope to keep activity going as now, on summer mode. Slightly lower than normal.

Other Information
Last month I’ve had some health issues which caused me to get very much behind on work, personal stuff and therefor also on my writing. I’m slowly catching up. That’s also why this report is so hugely late. I just had a hard time finding a moment to sit down and write it. I hope next month I will be on time, as I usually am.

I also want to use this report to thank my XO en 2XO very much for keeping things going while I was sick. I couldn’t run this simulation without them. Especially my XO, she’s been my rock for the last few months, to keep me sane, and even to remind me of stuff that needs to be done. (Like writing this report )
I also want to thank my crew for keeping up with their writing even when my time is limited. Thank you all, you are what makes this Simulation amazing. Your enthusiasm is what gives me the motivation to keep going.

And I want to thank my TGCO for keeping up with me. I’m probably not the easiest CO around, but he manages to keep his patience, even when he is struggling with stuff himself.

Number of Posts: 44 (higher due to the late date of this report, but will be corrected next month as I always count posts from report to report.)
