Hmm... I apparently had a different idea for the shape and placement of people. I thought Leah'd be hiding between a crate and the wall, and closer to the actual doorway. Also, that it would be more normal-sized. Gibbs would end up right in front of her without realizing. Something like that?

This confirms the depths of my ignorance concerning scifi...

I doubt it has anything to do with your ignorance, and more to do with different perspectives in regards to movement. I'm not going to have the same exact idea as to anyone's position as they did, so I would use it more as a rough guide than anything else. The bridge should be MUCH more exact, as I have the ability to place all the characters pre-entrance.

Coincidentally, making diagrams for battle scenes after the battle is over is usually a lose-lose prospect because of the difference in ideas. Anyhow, rough guide and not road atlas... hope it helps, though. That's (as I see it) general positions.

Usa, I am thoroughly amused by just how much the pirate ship's bridge looks like the Enterprise... Razz

Also, I promise I will post by the end of the day today

And still no one's answered my question! Does anyone have any hints for how I should maneuver to get to Mitch? How's he going to catch my attention, stuff like that? Should I be carrying an obvious medical bag, or will my more civilian clothing give it away? It sounds like the NPC medic you created was wearing a lab coat, Usa. Should I be? It doesn't sound very period-correct, to me.

The only source image I could find that seemed like a "good" source image for 1930's medical personnel was link. Whether or not that's actually white, I dunno. Black and White is sort of a tricky medium. Razz

Of course, now that I look at it, it occurs to me that she's a nurse and not a doctor. Bah.

As for how Leah is dressed: however she wants to be. We'll just play that Berkham likes dressing in white, I'll come up with some backstory about how it reminds her of some event when she was just a nurse, or something.

As for finding Mitch, given that she's not dressed in a similar style of outfit (almost like a uniform) as the pirates, she'll be easy to pick out from them. That's from Mitch's angle, but keep in mind that she doesn't really know that there are survivors, other than the code that the Bering was getting before they landed.

My suggestion there, would be to either follow the soldiers or trek off on her own to attempt to find survivors. She would be choosing between self preservation (staying with the soldiers, who have already routed the pirates once) or her instinct to help others.

No one's to say that Leah isn't a decent shot with a pistol, even though she's a doctor. In fact, you may want to take a page out of the medic from Firefly's book.

In response to "Doesn't the Bible have some pretty specific things to say about killing?"
Book says: "Yes, it's quite specific, but it's a little fuzzier on the subject of kneecaps."

@Sunny: Once a Trekkie, always a Trekkie. Sue me. Razz It may bear no resemblance to the Bering's bridge, in fact I'm planning on it not (well, not the middle section anyhow). The Tacoma was set up for a different task, and as such has a different configuration in several areas. Uh huh. That's my excuse.

Thank you. Should I talk to BS about how she and Mitch get in contact?

It might be easier to work out a plan that way, sure. You two can discuss how your characters would interact and work out a solid plan. One of the tricks I've learned is to have a plan of action, but at the same time be able to change it at a moment's notice if need be. "By the seat of your pants" as it were.

Asa - I did offer to help you out with figuring out what your character should do, however you declined.


Tenshi - I would tease you for your trekkie status, if not for the simple fact that the Enterprise's setup is, quite simply, a very practical and efficient one for the sort of stuff that happens in a bridge.

Remind me to do a diagram of that alternate RPG sometime, the bridge for that is also practical yet wildly different. Far more Firefly-like.

Back to the matter at hand, I'll make up diagrams for the rest of the ship at some point when I'm feeling inspired. Inspiration comes in spurts, so it's hard to say when exactly that'll be. I'm also relatively undecided on how exactly I want the layout to be, finally. I'm not sure the original diagram leaves much for entering the cargo hold...

To be honest, I was thinking of adding an elevator to the main area near the airlocks, hence the circular pattern on the floor. This elevator would lower into mid-hallway second floor (or "living deck", where all the quaters and kitchen and medical bay and such are) and then on to the third floor. This elevator would actually be a gravity pad, manipulated by either an on-board gravity generating system, or any users with a grav implant. There would be amplifiers suited for this purpose, allowing grav users to do this with ease.

...but that's totally just my brainstorming, so I'll hammer that out and finalize it fairly soon. I haven't given a lot of planning to Bering's interior, as I didn't really fully design it, myself. I'm also contemplating re-arranging a bit so we have more room onboard, although I think we've lost Rolaoi.

Anyhow. On to dinner, and then kicking around the 'nets for a while.

So you did, Sunny, so you did. And now I'm embarrassed and hesitant to ask for help again, because I don't know where to start and I don't like being ignorant, which is contradictory, I know, but there you are.

I think I'm going to indulge my tendency to avoid conflict for a bit longer while I settle into classes, and PM you in a bit. 'Kay?

Oh believe me Asa, I know exactly how that contradiction feels. It's frustrating as all get-out, and unfortunately leaves one feeling very, very sheepish when one realizes the easiest way out of it is to just ask.

I'll be at work for a good chunk of today, but I should be able to reply to PMs now and again. And I'll definitely be around later tonight Smile

Ah, by 'a bit' I meant 'a week or so', possibly longer. I'm not sure I'll even send BS a PM, I may just let her die.

You didn't miss much, especially since you acted early - the rest of us are still trying to catch up.
