Poll of the Week: Just Dessert

This week we turn away from superstition and ask a question even harder then the Biscuit/Cookies or Cake dilemma. That is right, this week we are asking what is your favorite ice cream flavor? For many people ice cream is a common dessert especially in summer time. But with so many different varieties out there to chose from which gets your vote? Do you prefer a classic like Chocolate or Vanilla or do you have a hunger for something more exotic? And how do you decide when all the family likes something different?

While I wouldn’t recommend sitting down and taste testing every flavor out there just to decide which you like best for this weeks poll I am sure your taste buds would enjoy the experience. Just as I hope you will stay and enjoy the discussion after you vote.

Poll of the Week: It’s a Date

Of all the significant dates to arise throughout the ages, Friday, 21st of December 2012 has to be on top of a very short list. That date of course is the last day of the ancient Mayan calender which has inspired multiple films, untold amount of conspiracy and undoubtedly a lot of fear as it looms closer. The reason for such interest in that day of all others could only be that people will always be curious about the reason why the Mayan calender just stops this year and not some other random point in time.

So the question being posed this week is this, what do you think will happen on Friday 21st of December 2012? Do you think that it will be another normal day like the day after it or do you think that the world will come to a blockbuster finish as the movies suggest? I suppose that they are a few people that might have been able to tell us once upon a time but now it is up to us to figure out. If we have a little fun during the debate all the better.

So come on down and cast your vote at the forums and join in the speculation that will no doubt follow.


Poll of the Week: In the darkest moment

This week we continue with the theme of our character’s, this week we are asking if your character is religious at all? It can be said that in spite of all the wonders a Star Fleet officer can see during their career, they are also likely to see some truly horrific sights and even find themselves in the midst of unimaginable peril. In such dark circumstances does your character turn to some higher power for comfort .

A pioneer in early television and continuing such trends in its later series, Trek has certainly given a large amount of thought in creating a diverse range of religious backgrounds for our character to turn to. While in most cultures the idea of religion has dwindled its influence remains in the way each species thinks about an afterlife or even philosophies to live by. If your Character doesn’t believe what drives them in the darkest of times?

Poll of the Week: Vacation Vacation

Stellar CartographyThis week we will dive right in and ask; out of the whole universe where does your character like to take a vacation? Although it is a well known fact that life in the fleet keeps people busy, downtime is equally vital in order to keep the brave men and women of Star Fleet in ship shape condition.

The universe certainly doesn’t lack nice tropical planets with open beaches much like the divine Duronis Embassy. Or does your dream vacation spot have a touch of culture to it like Vulcan or Bajor. The possibilities are as numerous as the number of habitable planets out there.We would all love to hear what makes your characters dream holiday location special whether it be close to home or far flung and exotic.

Poll of the Week: Wonders of the Medical World

Prometheus Class Sickbay - from Memory-AlphaScience fiction as we all know, gives us a window into what the future may be like. This future environment shows us many instances of technologies that while quite ordinary in that particular fiction world, would have ground breaking implications in reality giving inventors something to work towards. A prominent example of this is the medical technologies seen in Star Trek. Like with all technologies seen on screen, Star Fleet’s medical equipment is far from perfect in a world that seems to continually find new ways to push the envelope on medical dramas. This week we ask which medical based technology do you think would have the greatest impact on a 20th century earth hospital? Do you think that the standard medical tricorder would revolutionize modern medicine or would having a EMH be for the greater good?

Poll of the Week: Favorite Pastimes

Hi POW fans,

This week we turn away from more serious topics and ask, as the title suggests, what are your favorite hobbies? How do you spend your free hours when work hasn’t got you bogged down or chilling with friends and family? Do you prefer to spend your time outside playing one of a hundred different sports, perhaps for a local club, or something more sedate like reading a nice book?

The categories are pretty broad this week and you may choose more then one. No doubt SB118 is among your favorites but let’s hear about your other interests. As always the discussion is all part of the fun.

Enjoy.
