Langley Station



Welcome to Langley Station!



We, here at Langley, are absolutely not your "average RPG". Our primary focus is providing our writers with a shipload (of individual opportunities, including a focus on PC and NPC reactions. As a simm, our focus is on individual character development, coupled collaboration between our writers, and even with other RPG’s. We operate in our own, unique open world system. As a result, we run 'mini-missions' that focus on events related to the fleet, or more frequently, specifically to station development: reflections of an ever-changing set of political and logistical realities in our stellar neighborhood. We strive for each writer to have a firm idea of what their personal story is: and as a Command Team, it's our goal to mediate, and facilitate, the growth and development of our entire crew as writers and as characters.

Posted on Mon Aug 3, 2020 @ 9:34am by Captain Kate Banninga in General News

Hey everyone,

A small message from me.

I know I’ve dropped the ball the last few months as the leader of Langley Station. I might have had great excuses, but that doesn’t mean you don’t deserve an apology from me. So, I’m sorry for my inactivity. I have every intention of getting Langley active again. Back to our old level of activity I mean. Langley has always been a slow-paced sim, and that it shall be as that’s what fits best with us. But the activity of late was even too slow for us. Which is mostly my fault.

The kids are still on summer break, and I still have my normal life with work and house stuff. But I want to use this month to work together with all of you to get back to writing the stories of our station, our ship and off course our characters.

The team and I have started brainstorming on some activities that make it a bit more fun, instead of just nagging people to get tagging again. But right now, I don’t have much info on it. Which will follow more in later news items.

In the meantime, if you have an idea, please come to me. I’d love to discuss possible stories. Or if you got other ideas that might benefit Langley Station, I’d love to hear it.

With regards,

Kate
Commanding Officer Langley Station

A small IC update as I submitted it for the fleet. In time I hope to write updates like this for new people so they can easily read back what happened so far.

“Monthly Update for Starfleet Command” Kate said to start the new report she had to send in. Normally Ron would do this, but he was on a mission so the task had fallen back to her.

“It’s been almost six months since the station got activated here and I think we’ve almost completed settling in. We’re still looking for some people in key positions, but overall, all department have everything they need to run.

This week has been a bit slower due to a simple virus that somehow got through the filters and caused many crew to be sick and unable to work. Engineering says the filters have been fixed and medical reports most crew will be ready to work in a few days.

Most actions on the station are just normal activity of what you’d expect on a frontier station. The research department is working hard on finding a way to reverse the planets soil problem. Other then that the XO is on a away mission with a small team. The Sedna is on a diplomatic mission, they’re due back in a couple of days. The Canterbury is about to set of on its first big mission since joining Langley. They have a 3-month survey mission planned of the space surrounding the station.

That’s it for this month.” Next month’s update would hopefully be done by Ron, Kate thought. She hated jobs like this.

» THAT virus - what it means for us

Posted on Wed Mar 18, 2020 @ 11:53am by Commander Ronald Hawk in General News

Hello all.

As you are aware there is a current health pandemic spreading across the globe (unless you live under a rock). As much as we are an online space, it does mean it will have some effect on what we do here.

Firstly we anticipate illness among us, and that may have an effect on activity. As such there is no expectation for posting requirements to be met at this time. We simply ask you to attempt to post and tag as much as you usually would. But no fear if you can’t. We get it.

Secondly Kate is currently self isolating and is having to deal with homeschooling as the schools in the Netherlands have closed. As such she is unable to spend as much time as she usually would on Langley. For the time being could you all please send any queries, questions, or issues in my direction rather than in Hera. This will help her to focus on her family and her own health.

Keep well
Ronald Hawk
Executive Officer


» Valentines 2020

Posted on Sun Feb 2, 2020 @ 12:31pm by John Sheppard in General News

Ladies and gentleman of Langley Station.

As of January 1st 2020 I have been appointed the Community-hero position here on Langley, this means that I together with the command team of this station will be in charge of creating non-mission critical events to bolster our post counts and more importantly character development and just plain fun!

That being said I am happy to announce our first event of this year! Valantines day 2020! For this event the we have come up with the idea that each member of the crew goes on a blind date with another crew member and that each crew member sends a ' secret letter' to another crew member, the same way someone would do if they have a crush on someone in the real world. As for the blind dating part create a post together with another crew member where you take your character/NPC to dinner.

At the end of the event the command team if possible chooses two crew members who will vote on which couple deserve the Valantines day 2020 award, now keeping in mind with everyone's personal life and so we don't rush you all, the event shall last until the 28th of February.
