I've been on this site for nine years and this is my greatest contribution.

well... hey BZP. It's been almost two months since I used this blog. jeez.
so uh, what's happening? A lot of the familiar faces around here seem to be gone as of late, so I'm not even sure anyone I know is still blogging here.
Not a whole lot's up with me except that I finally downloaded LDD and made an awesome (IMO) lego Excelsior Class starship which I intended to buy before realizing that service is no longer offered.
aside from that been playing Star Trek Online and just been all-around Trek obsessed recently. Rewatched some of DS9, all of Enterprise, and some of Voyager. and yeah nothing else really is new.
oh no wait I got into college for music too. lol I legitimately forgot about that. Gonna be starting in september as a bass player (switched from guitar two weeks before my audition).
so yeah, just figured I should update this thing a bit after two months.
So yeah, I downloaded this game finally and it's been really great so far. Graphics are a bit less awesome than I expected but oh well. Anyway I just took screenshots and GIMP'd around with them and made some images, so here we are:
Here's my bridge crew so far, consisting of (left to right), Ensign Eyra Sar (Trill), Captain Thomas Nathan "Manatee" Xin (Human), Ensign R'Shee (Andorian), and Ensign Jhril (Andorian):
and here's my ship, the U.S.S. Nelson, NCC-93403, Miranda class variant:
Most likely will be upgrading ship class soon to something more practical like a Constitution refit or something, and equip more than two phaser banks and a torpedo launcher, but this one's served me well thus far.
so yeah fun stuff.
Just finally got it after all these years. Made a male science officer (named Tom Nathan Xin ) for a captain and got a Centaur class ship (could've been worse I suppose) which I named the USS Nelson. I have no idea what I'm doing, been so long since I played games with a keyboard. Also the graphics are nowhere near as good as I had thought, but that's probably due to my computer's lack of a video card.
Still, I think it'll be really fun once I get into it and get myself a better ship.
Ran me about $870 CAD, what with tax and shipping and all, but luckily my dad helped out and paid for half of it (thanks dad). I saw this back in 2008 and knew I wanted it but was never interested in learning bass as anything more than a hobby. But now I find myself liking bass more than guitar, surprisingly, and figured I'd go with my dream guitar. It's gotten 5-star reviews accross the board without a single complaint and is super rare.
I managed to order the only one currently available in Canada.
