« on: January 05, 2021, 08:58:01 pm »
Disco crew,

It's that time of year again when we give out awards to players, and for this one we need your help.

The Crew Choice Award is given out every six months to a player who the crew have voted for. The criteria for this award is just to pick someone who you feel should be recognized, for whatever reason. We had a three-way tie, so this time we're really picking the winner!

Only those who are currently active Discovery members may vote. The poll will close Wednesday January 13th, so make sure to place your vote!

Holodeck / Memorial Service - USS Burke(Open to All)
« on: May 02, 2020, 06:47:39 pm »
3 Days after Destruction of Federation Vessel USS Burke

[Deck 6 - Lounge - USS Discovery]

T'Lara stood in an empty room, her back straight and mind finally completely calm after recent events. Much had changed, but at least now she thought she could take a moment to focus on just one of them: the sacrifice the crew of the USS Burke had made.

Walking around the ship the past couple of days she saw members of the Burke crew making their way to their temporary quarters or coming to and from sickbay for counseling or to visit recovering friends. She knew that something needed to be done to clear the air before they returned to Earth, to obtain some semblance of closure after the heroic deaths of the chosen officers. Her own heart ached when faced with the absence of Captain Franklin, even though he was not her captain and she had barely known him. The looks on everyone's faces, Burk and Discovery crew alike, was enough of a reminder. So, she arranged this memorial service.

They had already paid their respects to those who had perished before they could complete the transporter sequence that allowed them to live in this time, but something a bit less formal was sorely needed. In the lounge, T'Lara set out a few refreshments and a plaque she constructed with the names of those who had passed away along with some flowers. She knew each individual person would hopefully have a proper service once the crew returned to Earth and she wished she could be present at all of them to pay her respects. Her display wasn't really what they deserved, but it would have to be enough for now and she hoped it would be a comfort for all. Once everything was all set up she tapped her commbadge and gave a ship-wide announcement.

 =/\= For those who would like to take part, there will be a memorial service for the departed crewmembers of the USS Burke in one hour in the Forward Lounge. T'Lara out.  =/\=

She waited silently for people to arrive.

Hello, Disco crew! As some of you may already know, I'm T'Lara. I'm the new XO of the Discovery, and I just wanted to say that I'm thrilled to be here and am looking forward to writing great stories with all of you. Currently we are finishing up a mission, but I thought it would be a good time to do some introductions for our new members and current members who might not know everyone yet. For those who don't know, we do have a Shadowfleet Discord server, which is a great way to communicate about both IC and OOC things.

For that reason, I'm proposing that we share a little bit about ourselves on this thread and this can be either IC or OOC and only as much as you are comfortable. I'm hoping this will help people put a face to the name (Or Discord tag to character, as the case may be) XD

I'm going to start. My name is Jackie and on Shadowfleet I play T'Lara and Vasilisa Belmont. My Discord tag is Jackie (T'Lara, Lisa) #7440 and if you would like to use another form of communication to talk to me feel free to send me a message on this site and we can figure it out. Echoing what I said on the Discovery Discord chat, I wanted to let you all know I have an open door policy so if you ever have a problem IC/OOC, want to discuss the mission, or just have a chat, I'll try to be online as much as possible.

As for getting to know me, I've been involved in Shadowfleet off and on since 2014 and have always loved the opportunities this site has given me to meet new people and write about what everyone came here for, Trek. T'Lara is half Vulcan/half Human and has always been a Science officer. Most of the time she'll be very blunt with you, but as usual with Vulcans you should never take it to heart. Who knows, maybe you'll be lucky enough to encounter her human side at some point. :) Well that's all from me. Feel free to add your own comments, I'm excited to meet/re-meet everyone!

Hey there,

It's been awhile but I promise I haven't forgotten about SF. Life got in the way. I'd like to start writing again with T'Lara and possibly Vasilisa Belmont if I have the time but no promises.

[Personal Quarters]

After she left the cargo bay T'Lara went straight to her quarters. Not to meditate, but to find something to wear. From what James had described, the event was a formal one. Somehow, she didn't feel that wearing a Starfleet dress uniform was appropriate. She would not be attending in an official capacity.

She sat down and gave the matter some thought, looking in the mirror and paying attention to her appearance for the first time in a very long while. Narrowing her eyes a little, she touched her hand to her cheek, watching her mirror image copying the movement. Her face looked softer, more relaxed. Had she finally begun to allow herself to feel as she once had? Were the reflexive walls she had built when her mother died breaking down? She could not tell for certain. Neither could she ask anyone if they knew. Not many people in Starfleet had known her before her mother died. Not even her own father, who had been in San Francisco at the time.

Perhaps tonight would reveal the answer to her. James Hawke had known her for quite a while. It was possible he could see the changes that she was seeing. If he paid attention to such things. She took a single, long breath and ran a hand through her soft hair. It was time to turn her thoughts back to another matter, what she was going to wear...

She was looking in the mirror once again, but her reflection was much different from what it had been hours before. She had chosen a slim-fitting red dress that complimented her tall stature with a neckline that went well with her short haircut.

 Giving a nod of satisfaction, she stood and pushed back the chair. At that moment she heard the door chime. It was time to put her preparation to the test.

"Enter," she stated.     

Old Topics / Personal Log- T'Lara

*Computer, begin log*

I have been reassigned once more. This time to the USS Discovery. Looking at the crew roster I see many familiar names. Although it has become easier to become acquainted with other non-Vulcans over the years, it is still a comfort to know that I will not have to establish relationships with an entirely new group of people, as I have had to do in the past.

I am eager for the ship to launch, as I prefer not to remain idle, and I have no personal research projects at the moment with which to occupy my time. My martial arts training has been beneficial, and lately I have been wondering whether to tell anyone about my sessions. The methods are Vulcan, and I have always been taught never to reveal them to off-worlders. However, it would be acceptable to have a partner that will be a bit less predictable than a holographic opponent, and I would assume that there are at least a few crewmembers who would like to learn. I shall give more thought to this matter and will update accordingly. That is all for now.

Character Details

Character Name: T'Lara

 Character Age: 32

Character DOB: 21 October, 2361; St. Paul, Minnesota

 Character Image 

 Character Species: Vulcan/Human hybrid

 Gender: Female

 Character Family:

Father: Christopher Fletcher

 m'aih (Mother): T'Rena

   sa-kai (Brother): Simik

 Character Bio: T'Lara was born on October 21st, 2361 in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Her parents are Christopher Fletcher, a retired Starfleet captain, and T'Rena, a Vulcan who served as a Vulcan ambassador of Starfleet aboard her husband's starship. T'Lara was named after a Vulcan Starfleet flag officer who was T'Rena's friend when she was at the academy. Shortly after T'Lara's birth, Christopher and T'Rena traveled to Vulcan where they resided in Shi'Kahr because T'Rena disliked the frigid winter temperatures. A year later, T'Lara's sa-kai Simik was born. The two of them grew up immersed in Vulcan culture. Their father felt alienated by his wife's people and he often wished he could be captain of a starship again. T'Lara struggled with the formalities of Vulcan culture and often thought of what her life could be like if she returned to the planet where she was born. She envied her sa-kai for his effortless ability to control his emotions. When the two of them came of age, they went their separate ways. Simik continued his Vulcan training and later attended the Vulcan Science Academy. T'Rena saw that her ko-fu (daughter) was much like her father; she was unable to restrain her constant flood of emotions. She allowed her to return to Earth with her father to enlist in Starfleet. T'Lara was interested in the same subjects as her sa-kai; science in particular. In her spare time she learned to play the Vulcan lyre from her mother and she also learned the Vulcan martial arts of ponn-ifla and kareel-ifla from a mentor on Vulcan. In Starfleet she chose to apply for the science officer position and was accepted. Despite her interest in the science field, T'Lara had her father's personality and often debated with herself whether she'd made the right decision in following the logical path of utilizing the skills she had instead of the ones she had the potential of unveiling.

Sample post

T'Lara glanced up from her packing to see her father standing in the doorway.   

"I'm almost ready, Dad," she said quickly, stuffing a rumpled pair of socks into her bag.   

"We're not in too much of a hurry yet, T'Lara." Her father smiled at her warmly and sat on her bed.   
"Dad?" T'Lara requested his attention.
"I don't know if I'm making the right decision."

"We went over this T'Lara; it's a good thing you're coming with me. Both of us feel out of place here and we will be useful on Earth."   

"It's not that; I'm ready to leave Vulcan. I just don't know if I want to study to be a science officer when I get to the Academy."   

"What would you rather be?"   

"It's not a matter of preference, it's what I think I'd be most useful as. Given my abilities, I think I would do well as either a science officer or as second in command."   

"Why not both?" Her father asked. "You'd be the second half-Vulcan to do it."
"Could I?"   

"We'll see what the instructors say when we get to the Academy." He sat up to leave. "Your mother, brother and I will be waiting for you outside." Being the only fully-human member of his family, Christopher Fletcher chose not to use Vulcan words; even though he had a good grasp of the language.

Once T'Lara had packed the last of her belongings, she shut her suitcase and slung her bag over her shoulder. As she walked through her house for the last time she breathed in the warm musty air that traveled past the stone walls and out the windows into the bright sky. Too bad she was going to California to attend Starfleet Academy. It would have been nice to finally feel the biting cold air of Minnesota winters that her father told her about, and which she'd never felt before. Outside the house, her family waited patiently. A little ways away, a shuttlecraft laid ready to launch with a couple Vulcan men standing by to assist. Christopher had a pack with his own belongings and he stood ahead of his wife and son; having already said his goodbyes. T'Lara set her bag down gently and stood in front of her m'aih; she strained against the longing to embrace her. T'Lara knew that to do so would be a grave insult, and she couldn't do that in front of the emotionless Vulcans watching her. Instead she waited for her m'aih to initiate a parting gesture. T'Lara waited nervously for her m'aih to say something, but she only stared; making her ko-fu feel like a specimen under a microscope.

"M'aih-" T'Lara started, but her m'aih put a finger to her own lips to silence her.

"You will do well, ko-fu. Even though you weren't able to understand the importance of kolinhar, your spirit and knowledge will help you to achieve great things." Her mouth curled ever so slightly at the end of the statement. Then she reached out one hand and touched T'Lara on the shoulder for a moment before going back to her stiff composure. Next, T'Lara's sa-kai stepped forward. He too remained silent for a moment, looking as if he was searching for the proper words to say. So different was he from their childhood when he hadn't begun training to control his emotions yet, and they played and ran through the forge for hours; even after the sun went down. Simik was T'Lara's protector when she was chastised for revealing her feelings. She was his friend, a playmate to keep him company when the other children wouldn't play with him. Now she had become his equal, someone who shared his life struggles. The only difference was that he was being accepted by the people of his heritage, and his ko-kai (sister) was not. After awhile he fixed his gaze on T'Lara and spoke in a monotone.       

"I will miss you, ko-kai. You have been a friend to me, and I am grateful for the comfort you gave me when the both of us were discriminated against by our peers. You have a great amount of wisdom and strength, and Starfleet will have gained a valuable member. I wish you well in the future, ko-kai. Live long, and prosper." At this conclusion, the three Vulcan family members raised their hands in a Vulcan salute. Simik stepped back and put his hands behind his back. T'Lara forced herself not to cry. Her lifelong friend, her sa-kai, would be light-years away. There was no one to protect her now.

"We should go, T'Lara," her father encouraged.

"Sochya eh dif," T'Lara waved as she was led to the shuttlecraft.   Inside, she sat down in the cool leather chair and gazed out the window. Slowly she felt the shuttle leave the ground, kicking up orange dust. Below, her m'aih and sa-kai still stood, like little wooden figurines. "Rom-halan," T'Lara whispered. "Until we meet again."
