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.

The Author’s Outpost, also known as Outpost de L’auteur in France, and to our Norwegian friends, Forfatterens Outpost has just released it’s eleventh episode. With special guest, nobody, we reviewed Castmodean’s Digging in the Past(Creuser dans le Passe). We also discussed in great detail, the TNG episode The Defector.

So wherever you are, be it France or Norwegia, come join us for some down home foundry talk. because Episode 11 is now available. Do not miss the very latest episode of The Author’s Outpost. That’s Autorova Outpost for those in Croatia and if we’re talkin’ Igbo it’s Onye chepụtara si eche nche. Caio.

We discussed the DS9 episode The Siege of AR-558 and Kendra brought us some tips on dialog writing. Don’t take my word for it. It’s right here.

Despite an apparent misstep in the republishing effort on Thursday, It can now be stated that Foundry missions are available again for play in Star Trek Online. The editor remains turned off at this time, as are reviews, but this is the normal state of affairs post season update. With luck we will see their return within the coming week, if not sooner.

New bannerOutpost adds a new third host with aleniskendra joining the team, adding a touch of credibility to the lunacy. This week we go on the road to another time zone to prerecord our special guest, Zorbane. As we suffer through another foundry-less week, Cast delivers what little news there is. Our Trek Episode discussion takes us to Voyager and the adventures of Captain Proton in Bride of Chaotica. Give us a listen.

NOTE: You must be at least as tall as Balok to ride this ride.

New bannerIn the name of all that is sacred, please join us.

New bannerEpisode 8 of The Author’s Outpost is now available for replay. We had aleniskendra join us to

review One of Our Telepaths is Missing by Wombat140, and discuss Enterprise episode

Damage. We also went through news of the Season 10 launch in STO and its effect on Foundry.

Enjoy.

/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/foundry21.png
That’s right folks, we reached another one of those times again, and with this release we will see some new objects and destinations to play with, and of course a revisit of our old friend, waiting for the editor to get turned back on. So, first up, here is a list of things we should be getting when the season launches, this list isn’t final as the official patchnotes have not yet been released as I write this post:

Sector Space Revamp:
Sector Space has been revamped into three Sector maps:
Alpha Quadrant
Beta Quadrant
Delta Quadrant
This revamp also includes additions to:
If a door in a Foundry mission is connected to an old Sector door, it will be re-directed to the new Sector Space map.
For more details, please visit the Sector Space Revamp blog at: http://www.arcgames.com/en/games/sta…r-space-revamp
Added Earth Spacedock as a UGC Map.
Added numerous Earth Spacedock Map Support Objects, including:
Turbolift and Club 47 Doors
Ops Holographic Consoles
Ship Markers
Added a new indoor template map: Diplomacy Room.
Space Stations usable on ground and in space

Three things of note:

1) With the season publish, all Foundry missions will undergo mandatory republishing once the server is active. This means for a while, we will not have access to our missions as they work through the republishing log. The republish might not commence right away so we could be looking at 72 hours before we start seeing missions repopulate the lists.

2)The sector space revamp will move planets all over the map, so all missions should be checked to make sure they reference their ‘proper’ place in the galaxy once again. This will only of course be possible once the editor is back online, which brings us to…

3)The Foundry editor will be offline for an indeterminate amount of time. This could be possibly as few as 7 days it could be as long as ‘until everything is fixed.’ The editor will remain offline for as long as the republish goes on and the verification that no data was highly corrupted during the publish.

 

New bannerEpisode 7 has April’s Author Profile. RogueEnterprise joins us to talk about his experiences

with Foundry and discuss TOS’s Bread and Circuses. Enjoy

NOTE: For those of you in the US. I hope you filed your 2014 Income Tax. Today is the deadline.

Never say we don’t perform a public service.
