Tipping-Point

It’s our Author Profile show for August. This time, we highlight the work of Drogyn1701. We discuss his mission Under Grey Skies, as well as StarbaseUGC’s six mission series. Our Trek Take 5 discussion focuses on TNG’s The Inner Light. We also announced the winner of our $10,000,000 prize giveaway, and Robert Downey Jr. pays us a surprise visit in the studio(not really). So tune in for all the excitement. You won’t be disappointed. Well, you won’t be very disappointed. I suppose it all depends on what you’re expecting. I’m not a mind reader. Listen anyway. It’s a good episode.

Fed sided solo mission.

Lvl 51+

Space combat only with some dialogs to spice it up.

The Vaadwaur hacked a Transwarp hub to invade Vulcan sector. Your ship must rise up to the call: Your ship has been assigned to 24th Starfleet Counterstrike Squadron. Your immediate goal is to seal shut or destroy the hub in Bhea system, along with any Vaadwaur forces you encounter.
You will be assisted by Reman Fourth Phalanx.

Entry point is Bhea system in Beta Quadrant.

You have to escort a sanctioned Starfleet unit to Starbase 77.
The USS Berlin are good stuff, only too incline to twist orders in a way Admiral Quinn does not like. At all. Try to ensure Captain McLane and his crew arrive there without causing any problems.

Single player mission, Fed sided, level +35

30 minutes long mission, some ground and space combat.

The usual, unusual people, discussed the usual STO things with the usual monthly Author Profile of the unusual AdmiralMurphy. We talked about things and stuff, as well as Enterprise’s Season 1, Episode 6…The Andorian Incident. It was the usual segment concerning the unusually good first season episode. If you usually enjoy the show, then there’ll be nothing unusual about this one.

Ok people. If you didn’t catch our live broadcast because your priorities were mixed up and you payed attention to Pluto instead, you may watch the show now. I don’t know what the big deal is, anyway. We knew it was there. It’s like Pluto took a selfie. So what? Not only that, but do we aven care after it lost planet status? Sure, I guess its an important thing, if you’re into that sciencey stuff. Wow, we mapped the universe. Pfft. WE had STOAdmiralAaron on our show. We even reviewed his first mission, Adrift. Then….hehehehe…then, we discussed the Voyager episode, Lifesigns. Huh?, Huh? Beat that, Pluto nerds!!! I’ll tell what our show has that you planet nerds don’t…Girls, for one thing…wait a minute….Kendra was a bit under the weather so she wasn’t there, but she usually is.

Oh c’mon. Please watch our show? I was joking. I kid the Pluto nerds.

Episode 14 of TAO, that’s The Author’s Outpost for the internet generation, had no special guest this week. We talked STO(again, abbreviated Star Trek Online,….kids…) as well as StarbaseUGC’s new six episode mission series. We had a discussion about TNG’s(….sigh…) The Big Goodbye. I’d tell you more about it but I’m just too lazy to spell it all out. That’s why there’s a typing free video. Fingers don’t even have to hit keys for one to enjoy it.

The header says the bulk of it, but as of last evening 6/22/15 (22/6/15 for those in Europe and Stardate 47634.44 for those outside Sol system) all english foundry spotlight missions were unpublished by Cryptic so that authors could make any fixes to them required by the changes to sector space, or general repairs that are required.  The period for this should be 2 weeks and all fixes should be submitted by that time. When you have finished your fixes, notify either LaughingTrendy, Zeroniusrex (or both) and remember to resubmit the mission for spotlighting.

The Children Of Khan Banner

P’trell, I go by the name of Cyclops and well… let’s just say I hear you’re the person to talk to for the information I have. You see, I’m sort of a freelance intelligence agent, and I’ve got some information I’m willing to give to Starfleet for the right price. Your name is starting to get around for some of the arrests you’ve made in the sector. Friendly advice, do keep an eye out. There are those who won’t like your work out here. Rumor has it though you are hunting down some of the nasty escaped prisoners from that high secret security prison breakout last year. I’ve dug up that list of fugitives Starfleet has still not rounded up and well I happen to know where one of the more high profile ones is currently hiding out. Meet with me in the Xleen System, and we can discuss business. I can assure you, you will want to hear what I have to say. The foundation of the Federation is about to be shook, and I’m betting you all would like a heads up before the storm hits…

You were there during the breakout at Facility 4028. You even had the chance to meet and see who some of the high profile prisoners were at the installation. Now, you have the chance to hunt down one of the most infamous escapees in my latest foundry series, The Children of Khan. In this five part series, you will be tasked with capturing escaped fugitive James Fadi Mehra, who prefers to go by the name Princep Khan. He led an augment terrorist group known as the Children of Khan responsible for several violent crimes against the Federation. Since his escape from the facility, Starfleet has wanted to get their hands on him before he could stir up more chaos. He’s been unheard of since the escape, scheming, planing… Now the time has come to make his return…

This five part foundry series, constructed by the well known foundry author AdmiralMurphy, previous host of the Foundry Files podcast, takes you on the wild ride of facing off against one of the most infamous criminals in this decade of Federation history. You will have to outwit Princep Khan and his allies, and uncover his dark history in order to stop his future plans. Best known for previous publications like Deep Space 11 or Victory is Q, this series promises to tell a gripping saga that will keep you pushing forward into the disturbing past of Princep Khan in an effort to put him behind bars yet again.

Search The Children of Khan and accept your new mission, or search for the author name @futuremurphy to locate this latest series.

New bannerEpisode 12 of The Author’s Outpost is fresh baked from the oven. This week’s show is, again, without a guest, which just left more space for us to fill up, and fill it, we did. Ep 12’s theme is on Social Commentary in Star Trek, which spun off into social commentary in general. We did, however, manage to slip in a review of Leviathan99’s Yesterday is Tomorrow. our Trek Take 5 was a discussion of Past Tense: Parts 1&2, DS9’s look back at our very near future. A word to the wise “Always carry ID.” Sanctuary Districts are probably being planned as you’re reading this. On a more positive note, we’d like to congratulate Harmon Buck Gin Bokai, who is having himself a record breaking rookie year with the London Kings. Seventeen year old, “Buck”, as his teammates call him, was recruited out of high school in Marina del Ray, CA. Born on Hallowen in 1998, it is a treat to watch Buck’s tricks at the plate. Good luck, Buck. We’ll be keeping an eye on this shortstop’s career.
