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.

STO Admiral Aaron’s Foundry Contest: http://www.arcgames.com/en/forums#/discussion/1195083/july­2015­sto­admiral­aaron­foundry­contest­win­zen

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.

This week we continue our long-term mission build. We start by bouncing plot ideas off each other while Dragoon works on his prison and we eventually shift gears to a space map.

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.
