September 2019 Post Counts

Post totals are seeing a slight downturn in sim counts for the month as the touch of Autumn weather signifies the coming of a number of events and holidays. In September we saw a fleet average of 174 sims per ship, for a total of 1563. Historically, this time of year is when many of us are gearing up for the next few months, which can be quite chaotic for some.

This month, the USS Atlantis leads the pack with 259 sims written. Following a bit behind, with 200 sims, is the USS Astraeus, making strides to come from only 131 last month. Right behind them comes the Veritas, falling to third from their pretty big lead last month.

This month, the USS Veritas leads the pack with 296 sims written. Following a ways behind, with 235 sims, is the USS Gorkon, falling just slightly from their lead last month. Right behind them comes the Columbia, in third for two months in a row, who has clocked 203 sims in August.

Poll of the Week: Crossover Confusion Part II

Last month we visited the idea that our favorite Star Trek characters could make some pretty awesome additions to some of our other favorite science fiction shows or movies. On the heels of that question, we will now consider the opposite. With so many well loved shows and movies out there, each with their own beloved characters, it might be easy to blur some of the lines to see crossovers in both directions. What? Is that Han Solo at the helm console? Is the Doctor over at science?

This week’s poll of the week question asks, if you were putting together the perfect crew, and you could pull over one character from another ‘universe’, who would you choose and what role would they play?

Consider the chaos that could ensue! There really is no limit to who you could pick, but be sure to let us know why you chose what you chose in the comments below the poll!


Poll of the Week: Everyday Speech

There are a number of quotes from our favorite television shows that we can return to, inviting a flood of memories back about the episode and what we were doing in our day when we heard the words. Few shows have grown beyond that, but Star Trek is definitely one of them. Rather than having to stop and explain a scene to your friends or coworkers, it’s easy to let one of these popular phrases fly and get a response from nearly any audience. Even those who don’t consider Star Trek a part of their lives will recognize some of them.

Perhaps that is why Trek had such an amazing following throughout the years. It wasn’t just the progressive attitudes and the willingness to delve into the unknown both in the show’s reality, and in our own psyche, but the manner in which the words resonated through multiple generations.

And that, of course, brings us to our poll of the week. What is your favorite famous Trek saying?

Let us know if it’s one of those we love, or if you have your own, and don’t forget to join the conversation and tell us when you put your favorite phrase to work in the discussion that follows.
