    Forgive my impertinence, and correct me if I'm out of line, yet I think we are getting into some weeds concerning the Cardassians relative to the overall mission of the Ares. Should the discussion be devoted to it's own thread?

    Scarlett has a point guys

    Evening all,

    I'm new to the forums and I'm looking to quench my RPG thirst. I have done forum RPGs before but not Star Trek or in this narrative style.

    I would love to give it a go. I was thinking about the Diplomatic Officer position or a Science Officer.

    As a newcomer any suggestions on which position?

    Ollie

    Hello Bugsy6 and welcome here !

    I would say that a Science Officer is the more "classic" one, as it only requires you to have Star Trek Science knowledge (our lovely "technobabble").
    The Diplomatic Officer is - I would say - a more free (freer ?) position, as there wasn't really any DO in the Star Trek shows/movies (at least not with this precise title/job). But it can become complicated if you're not used to that.

    I'll let you choose what position you prefer, then please send me a PM when you're ready Wink

    Indeed, or even this lol
    RIKER: Computer, release command control to this station. Authorization, Riker-Omega-Three. Okay, Morta. The Enterprise computer system is controlled by three primary main processing cores cross linked with a redundant melacortz ramistat and fourteen kiloquad interface modules. The core elements are based on FTL nanoprocessor units arranged into twenty-five bilateral kelilactirals with twenty of those units being slaved to the central heisenfram terminal…..you do know what a bilateral kelilactiral is, don't you?

    MORTA: Of course I do, human. I am not stupid!

    RIKER: … No, of course not. Now this is the isopalavial interface which controls the main firomactal drive unit. Don't touch that! You'll blow up the entire firomactal drive!

    MORTA: What? Wait….What is... what is a firomactal? Just explain it to me!

    RIKER: *Sigh* That is the firomactal drive unit...it controls the central ramistat core and also keeps the ontarian manifold within forty thousand KRG.

    That's good because I'm not a scientist, engineer or even a particularly clever person... I love Star Trek but I've never got too involved with the techie side of being a Trekkie. (Although I do have a Klingon dictionary and "Mr Scott's Guide to the Enterprise"!)

    Don't say such things, we're not here to judge people (remember the Star Trek open-mind rule). If you want some technobabble lessons I'm sure everyone here will be more than happy to teach you that Smile

    I enjoy a lot of the tech in Star Trek, having collected several technical manuals and science analysis books. Some of them are more like overviews than actual information but others are actually quite helpful.

    Take universal translators for example. They analyze someone's speech patterns and neural waves, brain activity, in their attempts to find common phrases, processes, and root terms in order to create a translation. The more it is used, the better it understands the people who use it and becomes better at translating. There were several episodes which demonstrated how it works and also the limitations, with these three being notable examples.

    I enjoy a lot of the tech in Star Trek, having collected several technical manuals and science analysis books. Some of them are more like overviews than actual information but others are actually quite helpful.

    Take universal translators for example. They analyze someone's speech patterns and neural waves, brain activity, in their attempts to find common phrases, processes, and root terms in order to create a translation. The more it is used, the better it understands the people who use it and becomes better at translating. There were several episodes which demonstrated how it works and also the limitations, with these three being notable examples.

    ENT: Fight or Flight
    ENT: Aquisition
    TNG: Darmok
    Darmok was amazing, I loved that as a kid. Such an awesome story; they speak the same words, it's translated, but the meaning and expressions are without context, so you still don't know what they're talking about.

    I also liked that the need for a universal translator started being addressed in DS9 and ENT. I also like the Star Wars idea of speaking in your own language, yet, you have to be able to understand multiple languages to communicate.

    A friend of mine at work, we both speak a little bit of each other's language, but when we want to get deeper into understanding something, I been trying to use metaphors with words and phrases I understand haha Picard and Dathon at El-Adrel
