Summer Test Drive! (Calibrations edition!)

(Or Winter Test Drive for you Southern Hemisphere folks!)

Got someone you want to try out before you app? Well this is the post for it! Feel free to use anything that fits in the setting of Drift Fleet! Want to play bumper shuttles? Want to go wild in a med bay? Play around with the current plot? Have at it!

Threads from the Test-Drive may be made game "canon" but DO NOT count toward AC!

FOR NEW PLAYERS: You DO NOT NEED an invite to participate in the TEST DRIVE! If you decide to APP into the game, ONLY THEN will you need an invite from a current player!

Since June is a special month in which we'll be breaking from the usual plot to bring back the calibrations plot, the Test Drive prompts will come in two flavors!

OPTION A: Standard Test Drive
Go ahead and treat the test drive as you normally would, using past plots or fleet locations as your setting! Here's some helpful info for some ideas.

  • April/May's Star System
  • March's Star System
  • Game Details
  • SS Iskaulit

    OPTION B: Build-a-Calibration
    If you'd like, you can use the info given about the Calibrations plot to design your own calibration room for any characters you want! Got a character you want to explore their inner psyche but isn't in the game yet? Go ahead and try it out! It can be a fully fleshed out room, or simply just a small part of it you'd like to play with.

    Alternatively for any characters that are in the game, you can use this as a chance to either iron out, brainstorm, or test run any components of your calibration before the actual plot starts! We don't recommend posting the entirety of your calibration in this meme (as you'll have nothing new to post come plot time), but this can be a good chance to test out any parts to make sure they work how you desire.

    Test drives are posted SEASONALLY, so the next one will be in September!

    Worf || ST: Deep Space Nine

    Marsiva broadcast:

    [Cue a very large and angry Klingon getting up from the floor, after seemingly falling over or being knocked unconscious. Worf unceremoniously picked himself up off the floor and instinctively went for his phaser or Klingon knives, his Mek'leth, but found none. He growled in annoyance but then noticed a glint of metal in the far corner of the room. His Mek'leth knives. He picked them up and sheathed them behind him, grateful they had only been displaced during transport. Now, to realise what the hell had just happened.

    Had he been kidnapped by Jem'Hadar? Cardassians? Or worse, the Borg? If anyone entered the room he was in, he would kill them. What coward dared take him from Deep Space Nine?! He would surely demand an honourable fight with them. He still had his communicator on his chest, as he tapped it once.]

    This is Lieutenant Commander Worf of the space station Deep Space Nine. If anyone can hear this I am stranded aboard an alien vessel alone. If anyone can hear me this is an urgent message.

    [Perhaps there would be some sort of communications device on board the ship he could use.]

    Have at it:

    [Guess who heard ALL ABOUT YOU, Worf? Guess who has a the greatest, most badass image of you in his mind because of it? Yep. THIS GUY.]

    Oh wow!!! You're WORF!!!

    [He's so badass wooooow. ]

    Hi! I'm Sokka. I- be cool, Sokka, be cool I can hear you. I'm the Captain of the Blue Fish.

    [Sorry, dude but he has no idea who you might be. He's also in a bad mood so sorry for the usual Worf grumpiness.]

    How do you know my name?

    [Worf frowned deeply and looked around him. There had to be some kind of open transmission somewhere aboard the ship, yet he couldn't see it. Who was this Sokka man?]

    ...Blue Fish? Is this the name of the vessel I am on? I demand to know what is going on. If you are the Captain, then why am I being held here against my will?

    [He can absolutely live with it. ]

    Right! I knew Beverly Crusher? She was here for a while. She talked about you: good things!

    Oh, wow, no, sorry, I didn't kidnap you. The Blue Fish is one of the SS ships that is stuck under the Marsiva. Atroma, the people who control that ship are the ones who brought you here.

    I served with Doctor Crusher aboard the Enterprise. She was an honourable person for a human.

    [High praise from a Klingon.]

    Have you ever met these Atroma? Who are they and what do they want with us?

    [Guess what? He's not a happy bunny to have been kidnapped by cowardly aliens. He will have vengeance.]
    alwayscomeback: (Fight the demons inside you)

    [personal profile] alwayscomeback 2017-06-10 11:26 pm (UTC)(link)
    She's super honourable! I'm sad you've missed her, she spoke highly of you.

    No, sorry. Only their voicepieces, and even them never in person. They say they want us for a TV show, for other people to watch for entertainment. Chances are it's more than that, though.

    [A little relief, a little but of an awkward pause. Does he know her or is he still married to Jadzia? That hadn't been a fun conversation with Beverly, oh she misses her, it would be less fun now.]

    No one will hear your comm, we're nowhere near Federation Space. There's a communicator nearby, it's broadcasting you to the Fleet.

    [Another that knew his name, yet he did not know the voice. He looked around and eventually found the screen where the voice was coming from. A communications device it seemed.]

    I do not know who you are, but you seem to know me. You know Federation Space?

    [She It couldn't be. She looked very familiar indeed. The markings on her forehead....Worf frowned.]

    You are a Trill?

    [Oh. Oh no. He doesn't recognize her, she's probably still on the Destiny. Or in the Academy by his time.]

    I- [She can't bring herself to say anything yet.]

    I'm a Trill, yes. I'm the counselor on board DS9, Ben pushed the paperwork through. My name is Ezri, I'm captain of the S.S. Caprine here.
    sonof_mogh: (determined)

    [personal profile] sonof_mogh 2017-06-07 07:37 am (UTC)(link)
    [DS9 had a counsellor now? It never had one before, did it? Worf didn't really pay attention to that side of the ship, as he never needed such services before.]

    My Par'Mach'Kai is a Trill.

    [Uh-oh. Timeline confusion times coming up. Worf studied the woman with a fascination. He had not noticed another Trill aboard the station before. Jadzia surely would have mentioned her to him.]

    Perhaps, you arrived recently to the station, since I am currently living aboard the Defiant. The station is rather....loud and busy for my liking when I am trying to sleep.

    [Yeah, she needs to know all of that, Worf.]

    I must say it is good to meet another Starfleet officer and a Trill.

    You're wife-to-be, right? Jadzia.

    [She thought this has been hard when she'd gone to find Ben? Ha! Or meeting Leonard again here. She hated when time was being toyed with.]

    I've only been on the station a few months. [She remembers that. Hadn't it irritated Jadzia?]

    You'll meet a few others here too. Captain Kirk, Pavel. You just missed Leonard and Beverly.
    sonof_mogh: (dishonoured)

    [personal profile] sonof_mogh 2017-06-07 07:57 am (UTC)(link)
    Yes. Jadzia and I are to be wed soon.

    [When she can eventually pick a date and stop being so....her.]

    That would explain why I do not recognise your face. Captain Kirk? From the Enterprise?

    [What the?- Surely, he was dead and buried? That was almost one hundred years ago, wasn't it? Or somewhere along those lines.]

    Berverly Crusher? The doctor aboard the Enterprise? The one with Captain Picard as captain?

    [This was all pretty surreal to Worf right now, who was trying to swallow all the words the Trill was offering him. Was he dreaming? It seemed like some sort of wild dream. Was he being tested by the gods? Was Kahless judging him?]
    musicalhost: (neutral)

    [personal profile] musicalhost 2017-06-07 08:03 am (UTC)(link)
    [Good questions, Worf.]

    I don't come to Deep Space Nine until 2375. That would be why.

    And yes, James T. Kirk himself. And Beverly Crusher, she was a good friend. I hope she will be when I get a chance to go home too.

    [This is going to take a bit.] Atroma doesn't much care about the Temporal Prime Directive. They'll take anyone from any time.
    sonof_mogh: (pissed)

    [personal profile] sonof_mogh 2017-06-10 07:37 pm (UTC)(link)
    [All of this was becoming too much for Worf to understand, as he growled in annoyance.]

    This is not....possible. How can I have gone back in time? These Atroma you speak of...are these the ones responsible for bringing us here?

    [He looked around warily at the room. Who were these cowards who took both him and this woman from their homes aboard DS9. He would surely kill them for this.]
    musicalhost: (neutral)

    [personal profile] musicalhost 2017-06-11 05:20 am (UTC)(link)
    Ahead, really. You and Jadzia had already been married.

    [She's trying to keep vague about home. Trying so hard. It was easier when it was just Beverly, she hadn't been attached to Jadzia.]

    Atroma, yeah. They brought us here. We're supposed to be entertaining, like some of those old Earth shows.
