  1. An XA will address your ban appeal, but this is my side of the story: You were banned for being actively, and intentionally, toxic and offensive with the clear purpose of attempting to irritate or upset those you were talking about. When you were asked to stop, all be it in a fairly aggressive way, though I'm sure it's fairly obvious as to why it was said like this, you carried on regardless. That was clearly in response to what I said below, obviously attempting to ridicule my statement. When people called you out on it as clearly they had thought you had gone too far you said: "making fun of dumb idiots online fuels me" There were a few further messages after that back and forth between other players, but nothing particularly pertinent. Though I do wonder what you would have said next, considering the conversation was still going on, had I not banned you. The difference is between unintentionally and intentionally trying to offend someone. Unintentionally offending someone by bringing up a certain topic may be looked down upon as a mistake with a slap on the wrist. Going out of the way to INTENTIONALLY offend someone (which you clearly did) in that manner for their own amusement, regardless of who is doing or receiving it, is wrong. It's on the same level as racism, sexism and many other isms in many ways. Imagine if I went into a channel and started targeting Lit for being Asian and was being actively aggressive and venomous about it. Imagine if every time Alice, Sami, or Bianca came onto the discord or server I targetted them and harassed them aggressively because of my dislike for women. Is that okay? Free speech, right? By that logic, I could be actively and horrifically offensive to whoever I wanted to about whatever I wanted and get away with it simply by saying, "it's just a shitty joke guys." So why say it? What makes you think it's okay to say that in the first place? Funny how now it has inconvenienced you, you apologise, instead of apologising when I made it clear that what I thought you were saying was wrong. The reason it was carried onto the server was that this is all one whole community. A ban is a ban.
  2. Because a few people have asked recently: ROSTER CLEANED UP due to inactivity. If your name was removed and/or is not on the roster, your character is not on the ship. If you wish to contest this removal for inactivity, contact me. Or if you wish to reintroduce an old character, you must get an admin to run an event dedicated or semi-dedicated to retrieving your character.
  3. UPDATED. Will update life support document later.
  4. UPDATED with requirements. Thread cleaned up a bit. All logs now in here.
  5. See for further details on the life support system.

  7. This is a Frequently Asked Questions thread. If you need to know something regarding Fleet, consult the list of questions here or ask in a post and, hopefully, your question will be answered. Why do TAC pilots start at Ensign? For a member of Fleet to become a TAC pilot, they must first serve as bridge crew. Generally, one-to-two years served as a member of a vessel's crew, typically as a navigation's specialist, will suffice. They then may request training upon their assigned vessel to begin accumulating flight hours. This is usually done by flying a dropship or other light spacecraft, but rarely in an actual combat aircraft. The crew may also be sent to flight school to complete these flight hours under more rigorously instructed conditions within simulators and monitored flight environments. Once these hours are accumulated, the prospective pilot can then move onto gaining their flight hours in actual combat aircraft (TAC/VTOL) flight and then move onto the final examination. These last flight hours must be gained at the flight academy and the examination performed by a certified instructor. While at the academy, the pilot will also receive officer training. Once completed and passed, the crew will then be assigned to a dedicated TAC wing.

This is to represent the service a character has to do prior to being assigned to a front-line combat pilot assignment. Also note: Master Chief Petty Officer is a unique rank and you cannot obtain the rank bonus for it unless you have been promoted to it. IE: served as a Chief of the Boat Rank Explanation - Cadet (Cdt.) - Equivalent to a Recruit (Rct.) in the Mobile Infantry. Fresh out of the academy, this is the entry rank after being assigned to a vessel. You will complete the training you received in the academy at this rank and begin learning your way around the vessel and its systems. - Crewman-Apprentice (CmA.) - Equivalent to a Private (Pvt.) in the Mobile Infantry. Once the initial level of training is complete and your superiors are happy with your progress, you will be assigned the rank of Crewman-Apprentice. At this rank, you will begin more in-depth training into general operation of the vessel and the various bridge consoles. - Crewman (Cm.) - Equivalent to a Private First Class (PFC.) in the Mobile Infantry. With your time served as a Crewman-Apprentice, you will be assigned the rank of Crewman. With attainment of this rank, the Enlisted should be capable of basic operation of all ship systems, able to fill in when more senior personnel are not available. - Petty Officer Third Class (PO3.) - Equivalent to a Lance Corporal (LCpl.) in the Mobile Infantry. The Petty Officer ranks are the beginnings of the training to become specialised in a station. Before being promoted to Petty Officer Third Class, you will be asked which station you would like to be assigned to. You will then begin your training in your chosen specialisation (Navigation, Warfare, Weaponry). - Petty Officer Second Class (PO2.) - Equivalent to a Corporal (Cpl.) in the Mobile Infantry. When your superiors believe you are suitably far enough along with your training, you will be designated at Petty Officer Second Class. By this stage, you should be helping to train the lower ranking Enlisted and those less experienced than you. - Petty Officer First Class (PO1.) - Equivalent to a Sergeant (Sgt.) in the Mobile Infantry. The rank of Petty Officer First Class will be awarded to those that display a significant aptitude for the station they are assigned to. Enlisted of this rank are responsible for training those below them in what they have learned and are expected to be able manage a station on their own. - Chief Petty Officer (CPO.) - Equivalent to a Staff Sergeant (SSgt.) in the Mobile Infantry. A Chief Petty Officer will be an Enlisted that displays serious leadership abilities and has capacity to begin mastering the harder functions of their station. Being elevated to a Chief position indicates that your have been recognised by your superiors as a serviceman/woman of great talent. - Senior Chief Petty Officer (SCPO.) - Equivalent to a Master Sergeant (MSgt.) in the Mobile Infantry. Senior Chief Petty Officers serve as the penultimate rank of general enlisted, however they are generally considered to be the last attainable rank before becoming an Officer. This is because the highest Enlisted rank, Master Chief Petty Officer, is reserved for the Chief of the Boat. Senior Chiefs act as the Ship's Boatswain's, supervising the Enlisted in carrying out the Officer of the Deck's orders. - Master Chief Petty Officer (MCPO.) - Equivalent to a Sergeant Major (SgtMaj.) in the Mobile Infantry. The Master Chief Petty Officer is the Chief of the Boat. They are the right-hand of the Commanding Officer and the Executive Officer of the ship and serve as the senior enlisted adviser. They are responsible for the order and discipline of the crew of the ship and are in charge of training and managing the progress of the Enlisted. One important thing to note about the rank of Master Chief Petty Officer is that it is exclusive to the Chief of the Boat and so does not follow normal promotion protocols. It is possible, when a new Chief of the Boat is required, for any rank of Enlisted to be promoted immediately to Master Chief Petty Officer and therefore Chief of the Boat. - Officer Cadet (OCdt.) - Equivalent to a Second Lieutenant (2Lt.) in the Mobile Infantry. An Officer Cadet is the first rank of Commissioned Officer and is the first stop on a fresh Officer's career. Generally, this is a rank reserved for Enlisted that are commissioned as opposed to members of Fleet that graduate as an Officer from the academy. An Officer Cadet is, for all intents and purposes, a purgatory rank until the Fleet member passes OCS (Officer Candidate School). Until then, they have no real responsibilities aside from whatever was assigned to them prior to their commission. Therefore, they should focus on studying for the Officer Candidate School exam. - Ensign (Ens.) - Equivalent to a First Lieutenant (Lt.) in the Mobile Infantry. Ensigns are widely accepted to be the first real introduction into Officer-hood. They are responsible for managing their chosen stations and are capable of cross-specialising at this point if they wish. Ensigns form the bulk of the officers on board a vessel and regularly find themselves in charge of several Enlisted at once, sometimes overseeing several Senior Chief Petty Officers as they in turn oversee their Enlisted directly. - Lieutenant (Lt.) - Equivalent to a Captain (Cpt.) in the Mobile Infantry. A Lieutenant is an Ensign's direct senior and generally serves as the executive officer of a department. They function as a Lieutenant-Commander's right hand when running departmental business and, as such, should be masters within their chosen field. While a Lieutenant doesn't necessarily need to be the XO of a division, it is uncommon for Ensigns to be promoted to Lieutenant unless they are highly skilled and very competent individuals. It is very rare to see a non-XO Lieutenant that isn't cross trained. - Lieutenant-Commander (LtCmdr.) - Equivalent to a Major (Maj.) in the Mobile Infantry. The Lieutenant-Commanders of the vessel act as the departmental heads, leading the Navigation, Warfare, and Weaponry sections. Each departmental head is entirely responsible for everything that falls under their section, culpable for organising maintenance, training regimes, resupply, and everything in between. - Commander (Cmdr.) - Equivalent to a Lieutenant Colonel (LtCol.) in the Mobile Infantry. The Commander is the Executive Officer of the vessel. They are just as powerful as the Captain when they are not around, culpable for everything and everyone on the ship. They are responsible for drills, ship works, exercises, and personnel organisation. They are also the person that will inform the Captain that the ship is ready and capable for combat when going to action stations. The Commander will also retire from the Bridge to the Combat Information Centre when the Captain is present, so that a single direct hit to the Bridge will not incapacitate both Officers and cripple the ship. - Captain (Cpt.) - Equivalent to a Colonel (Col.) in the Mobile Infantry. The Captain of the vessel is the Commanding Officer. They are, for all intents and purposes, the king or queen of the ship. The word of a Captain is final in matters that concern their ship and is referred to as Captain's Law. They have ultimate authority over their vessel and are given a large remit to run their ship as they see fit, so long as they abide by the law of the Federation. It is worth noting that, officially, the captain of a ship does not have to hold the rank of Captain. Technically, any commissioned officer can be the captain of the vessel, however it is common that a Captain hold the title of master.

  10. AFC-FG-103-Charles H. Upham (UCF-103) - Yukon-IV Class Frigate Unfinished systems/sub-systems System - Power Unfinished sub-systems: Secondary nuclear fission reactor control – Requires 2x control consoles physically installing and electrically testing for safety. Consoles can then be integrated into the Upham’s systems. Consoles are stored inside the cargo bay. Requires: anyone for physical installation, systems engineer for electrical testing, systems engineer and fleet support for systems integration. No secondary power source currently available until this is fixed. OPERATIONAL Cold fusion reactor fuel delivery system – Requires second automatic fuel delivery system installed. Consists of one radiation shielded automatic robotic pick and place system, stored within the cargo bay. Requires physical and electrical installation by someone familiar with robotics. Systems integration then needed by robotics tech and fleet support. Reactor currently only working at 50% capacity until issue resolved. Back-up solar arrays – Requires 25x solar arrays on the lower port quarter of ship wiring into the existing system. Hull of the entire Upham is covered in reactive panels that have 3 purposes. They act as armour, the absorption surfaces for the Aegis sensors, and solar panels. They are physically already in place. Requires electrical installation. The system already in place will automatically update when new panels are detected. Requires systems engineer with EVA training. Port quarter solar panels not currently functioning (solar array functioning at 80% capacity). Unable to support ship entirely on solar power while in orbit. System - Structure Unfinished sub-systems: Static build-up 'earthing' rods – Requires 2x static discharge rods physically installed on the keel. Rods are NOT currently in stock within the cargo bay. Rods act to discharge static build-up collected through various means, typically flying through electrically charged nebulae, firing the MAC cannon, or flying through MISSME clouds. Rods extend below the keel and skim the atmosphere during specially designed static-discharge flying paths. Requires anyone to physically install, preferably an engineer with knowledge and respect for electricity. Currently have to enter deeper into the atmosphere to discharge static from the hull of the vessel, which is an incredibly dangerous manoeuvre. Automated fire control systems – OPERATIONAL Remote blast door control – Requires blast door wired and wireless control units integrating into Upham core systems. All blast doors are fully fitted and currently functional, however only on an automatic level. Remote manual control is not possible. Requires a systems engineer and fleet support. Remote deployment of blast doors will not be possible until this system is integrated. OPERATIONAL Dropship launch control – Requires auto-pilot control board installing and electrically testing for safety within navigations console. The console can then be reintegrated into the Upham’s systems. Board is stored inside the cargo bay. Requires systems engineer for physical installation, systems engineer for electrical testing, systems engineer and fleet support for systems integration. Automatic dropship launch and landing unavailable until the console is installed and functioning. (Effectively, autopilot docking for dropships doesn’t exist currently and is all done manually by the pilots, which requires significant skill and incurs substantial risk) OPERATIONAL System - Propulsion Unfinished sub-systems: Alcubierre drive – Requires 4x capacitor banks require physically and electrically installing. 2x capacitor banks are stored within the cargo bay. 2x capacitor banks need to be located. Requires electrically qualified engineers to physically and electrically install. Systems engineers and fleet technicians are required to integrate capacitors into the Upham systems. 8x capacitor banks are used in total to power the drive, which means the drive is only current functioning at 50% capacity. Automated docking systems – See Dropship Launch Control. The docking system is controlled by the same board. OPERATIONAL System - Life Support Unfinished sub-systems: Pressure control system – Pressure monitoring and control in some areas are not functioning. Requires diagnosis and troubleshooting. Likely a system integration or electrical issue. Some doors must be left open to ensure that the functioning area pressure systems can compensate. This is obviously a large problem considering security and airtightness in case of a breach. Areas affected: enlisted barracks, canteen, medical bay. OPERATIONAL Gas/vapour collection (air intakes) – Some of the HVAMS (High Volume Air Movement Systems) are not functional and require diagnosis and troubleshooting. Likely a system integration or electrical issue. Air movement system is not functioning at 100% efficiency and therefore potentially harmful build-up of toxic gases or vapours is possible. Areas affected: all HVAMS unit #4 is currently still in fault. Electrical fault detected on fan #2 motor. Possible electric motor replacement or repair required. Likely an issue with the windings. Please rectify. Fault investigated. New motor required. Part no: A06B-0044-B423-0100 Gas/vapour distribution (air outlets) – Pressure control systems on some decks are not functioning. See life support systems diagram. OPERATIONAL Oxygen recycling (scrubbers/pumps) – Due to low intake of air, 2 of 4 scrubbers have entered fault mode, the high volume scrubbers. This is causing a low volume of gas recycling and therefore a low percentage of vital components in the overall air. This means that the systems are accessing the gas reserves to compensate. It’s a minor drain as the low volume scrubbers are still working, so at the current rate, gas reserves will deplete in approximately 2-3 weeks. HVAMS issue needs resolving before this can be resolved. OPERATIONAL Nitrogen recycling (scrubbers/pumps) – See above OPERATIONAL CO2 recycling (scrubbers/pumps) – See above OPERATIONAL Mixed gas recycling (scrubbers/pumps) – See above OPERATIONAL Water vapour recycling – Requires 2x industrial grade vapour condensers installing. Currently 0x available on the ship. Requires a systems engineer and someone familiar with air and water movement for physical and electrical installation. Systems integration to be performed by systems engineer with fleet support. Currently, most liquid vapours are not being removed from the air and, as such, the air humidity is steadily growing every time someone showers, or turns on a tap, or flushes the toilet. Approximately 2-3 weeks of build-up will mean humidity will reach dangerous levels for electrical equipment. Waste collection system – Requires 2x industrial grade pump/macerators installing into the waste system. One pump without a macerator has been jury-rigged in for the meantime to ensure no sewage back-ups happen, but issues will arise soon as solid matter as large as is going through the system currently is not recyclable by the current system. Systems engineer for electrical installation, someone with a strong stomach for physical installation. Currently, no waste matter is being recycled as it cannot be correctly collected. Waste recycling system – Recycling is performed by a dual system which is currently installed and functioning, however, it cannot currently function correctly due to the lack of correct pumps for the collection system. After the collection system is installed properly and issues rectified, the recycling system will need fully isolating and cleaning out of all matter. Until then, recycling cannot happen and sewage back-ups will become more and more likely over the next few weeks. Potable water distribution system – A pump was removed from this system to power the wastewater collection system. Once that system has the correct pumps installed, the jury-rigged potable water pump will need to be reinstalled back into the distribution system after being thoroughly cleaned and sanitised. Until then, the water pressure all over the vessel is very poor. Taking a shower is, frankly, depressingly slow. Waste plumbing (showers/toilets/drains) OPERATIONAL Humidity control systems – Humidity control is currently shut down due to lack of vapour control. See water vapour recycling. Humidity is controlled by the 4x Air Conditioning units which are currently not all functioning due to the lack of condensers and other components. Humidity cannot be fully controlled room by room until the AC units are fully repaired. Air conditioning – Requires the water vapour recycling system to be repaired. Also requires 3x new expansion valves for the refrigerant lines and a new set of evaporator coils for the two high volume AC systems. Valves and coils require installing by an engineer, preferably with knowledge of HVAC systems. Severe temperature and humidity problems may be experienced until this is rectified. Temperature regulation systems – Controlled by the Air Conditioning units. Currently not functioning correctly due to bad evaporator coils. See Air Conditioning systems. Temperature cannot be fully controlled room by room until the AC units are fully repaired. Hydroponics – Hydroponics can commence once the organic waste is recycled and turned into compost by the wastewater recycling system. System - Data Handling Unfinished sub-systems: Data recorders – Automatic data recorders are non-functional, due to telemetry suite errors. Resolving the telemetry suite errors will allow the data-recorders to correctly gather navigational data. Telemetry suites – Some navigational/telemetry sensors require realigning, reteaching, and resetting on the Upham control systems. 2x sensors are located on the upper port beam, 4x sensors are located on the upper starboard quarter, 3x sensors located on lower amidships. Sensors require EVA and systems trained engineers for physical work and Fleet technician assistance afterwards. System - Telecommunications Unfinished sub-systems: Long-Range-Radio systems – LRR is not fully encrypted due to issues with encoding/encryption systems. Rectifying encoding/encryption system will fix this issue. Encoding/encrypting systems – Encryption software currently not installed. Base level encryption using a 1024-bit key installed by PO3 Imperius. AES-4096 level encryption required for full protection. System - Sensors Unfinished sub-systems: Tactical sensors (Yinimina Precision Devices 'Aegis' Self-Defence Sensor System) – See solar array, as panels are both solar and sensor panels. There is currently a blackspot in the Aegis in the lower port quarter of the ship, between approximately 122° and 147°. System - Weapons Unfinished sub-systems: 6x Brunham Ballistics MW-888 'Trip Eight' 35mm Defense Guns – 4x require physically connecting to the ship systems, needing an EVA trained Systems Engineer to complete. 6x require connecting to the fire control system by a trained Fleet technician. 6/12 Trip Eights currently online. 2x FedCom 'Firestorm' MK1 Multi-Purpose Missile System – Both Firestorms require physically connecting to the ship systems, needing an EVA trained Systems Engineer to complete. Both Firestorms also require connecting to the fire control system by a trained Fleet technician. 4/6 1x FedCom 'Retaliator' Thermonuclear Torpedo Launcher – Torpedo loading crane for port side Retaliator currently has no power. Requires 1000 volt 3-phase power lines installing by trained Systems engineer. Until the crane is powered, only the starboard side Retaliator can be used. OPERATIONAL 1x Morita Colossus MKVIII Mass Accelerator Cannon targeting systems integration – Targetting systems need to be hooked up to 32 forward-most gas manoeuvring thrusters (those responsible for MAC alignment). Until then, MAC cannot be aligned correctly without almost impossible levels of involvement from the pilot. OPERATIONAL
