Star Trek Logo

On September 6, 1966, the world was forever changed. And for once, it was changed for the better. Star Trek lands on TV sets.

52 years later, and Star Trek is still changing the world around us. To celebrate Star Trek's birthday, The Blue Report is doing a special Star Trek issue.

And we want help from OTF members. We have a couple of questions that we'd like you all to answer, so we can feature them in September's issue. Feel free to answer all, or just some of the questions.

  • If you could meet one Star Trek actor/actress (living or dead) for a day, who would it be?
  • You have access to a holodeck for the weekend. What program would you run? (Family Friendly answers please.. Morn is borrowing all of Quarks adult programs)
  • Star Trek has affected the lives of people around the world. How has it affected yours?
  • Q snaps his fingers, and makes Earth and Risa vanish by mistake. But he'll send you to live on an alien planet as compensation. Where do you tell Q to send you?

You can send your answers to potatofreak@gmail.com. Please include your OTF handle with your answers.

I look forward to seeing your responses!

OTF shot Greedo

  • Priority: Green
  • Posted By: Soka (CL7)
  • Posted On: 2018-05-29 22:39:45
  • Affiliation:
OTF Shot First!

While taking a holiday to recover, Greedo reviewed a recording of the last few days, so he could tally up the scores. It turned out there were a total of 132 shots over the 5 days of this shoot-out. About 90 of those shots were L2s - which means the local Security Force accepted the offered bribes, or they'd certainly have raided the Cantina.

The event started with an advantage for Greedo - because the locals obviously hadn't taken Lobot's advice and prepared their blasters, or lacked the practice in drawing quickly. This quickly was evened out, and even turned. On the first day 6 seconds was the quickest time, on the second already there was the first out of five 1-second shots.
Yep, it's true - there were 2 chatters practically hugging the armoury - eventually Greedo had trouble even staying long enough in the chat to post his first post. And that is without an entry-line posted in the chat.
As a result, each of them has more points than all the other chatters combined. Although to be fair, the others most likely gave up even trying to open the armoury at some point.

Mashed Potatoes was the only one who lost points due to bad aiming skills - he shot once Arwen and once Ashley instead of Greedo.
Lzrman took only one shot at Greedo, but he entered only to shoot - interrupting a quiet night in the Cantina. Actually, it was so quiet that Greedo hadn't said anything, but was on his way out again already. Only the cam-recordings showed the shot.
Speaking on sneaking up on an unsuspecting Rodian, Keith got the very first shot in, with Greedo just entering to look around the place, for places to hide and such. Or possibly, he'd just gotten his days mixed up, too?


Here are the points:

Keith - 54
Tyler - 49
Taters - 8
Mela - 5
Nathalie - 4
Arwen - 3
Carol - 3
Dr. Matt - 2
Goose - 2
Jersey - 2
Lzrman - 2
Michiel - 2
Robert - 2
Zel - 2
AJ - 1
Hobbie - 1
Tycho - 1

While he only scored (a pretty distant) third in points, Mashed Potatoes actually was the fastest draw in average: If he shot, he was quick.

The person shot out most (right after Greedo) was PV aka Michiel - and one of those shots was a L2. He earned that one by telling people not to shoot out Greedo, to give him a chance. Of course, he instantly changed his mind after having to log-on again ...

I'd like to give a huge THANK YOU to our patient ISAgents, and a more regular one to all of the other Greedos.

~ Soka, Holodeck Events Team



PS: Instead of OTF holding a full memorial, please take a moment to remember Greedo over the next week. An hour or two per day should do.

Holodeck Events present...
With the new Solo-Movie coming out, it's time to finally make a decision. What do we want to compare it to, the Original or the Special version? Is Han just the luckiest smuggler around, or did Greedo never get around to shoot at all?
This major matter (for SW-fans), which has caused lots of heated discussions over the years, is now to be settled - by a bullseye contest Shoot-Out.

Starting on Wednesday, Greedo will enter the Cantina from time to time - and try to draw, shoot and actually hit somebody. Of course, the locals (you) aren't likely to just be willing target-practice for Rodian bounty hunters, and will try to kick him out of the room by shooting him first. In self-defense, of course. After all, we know there is nothing better than a good blaster at your side. However, you have to set it to stun (L1 or L2). Thermals and similar weapons are banned.

The holographic bounty that has been put on Greedo's head will be awarded to the best shot!

The Points System:
  • +2 - Shoot Greedo before he can!
  • +1 - Shoot Greedo after he shot someone!
  •  -1 - Miss Greedo and shoot another chatter!
Greedo is allergic to Spoilers! Talk about the new movie in the main room, and you get cleaning duty - you don't want that, seriously!

Happy shooting!

There was a disturbance ...

...in the chat, caused by Surprise Trivia Events, with - of course - Star Wars as topic.
There were some ... less serious answers given too, which certainly increased the entertainment value. It only ended when the SW-Days ended, with May 6th - at least for the participants.
The Surprise Hosts, however, met later over some drinks (whiskey for the Porg and Ewok, oil for the Droid), to compare their notes: They learned, among other things, that the real reason Han was frozen in carbonite was as preparation for a return to Hoth, and just what kind of junk was to be found in the Death Star's garbage compressor. Of course, they also summed up their points - here is who won the big price of cleaning up!

    May the Fourth ... !

Having read the BR below, and noticing the date, the Holodeck's occupants (Droids, Porgs, even Ewoks) have decided to join in the celebration by popping up from time to time, testing your knowledge. You could call it surprise exams. Or, even better, a series of Tiny Trivias.
This event will last from Friday to the Revenge of the Sith on Sunday.

 This is how it'll work:
  - From time to time, a host will enter the chat and ask a set of 3-4 questions.
  - The usual Trivia rules apply.
  - Once the session is done, the host will leave.
  - The points are being tracked and summed up at the end.
  - The winners get to clean the Cantina. It'll certainly need a thorough scrubbing after the celebrations.

Hello, fellow Outposters!

First of all, thank-you to all who took the time to complete the survey regarding Online Gaming, the information collected will be a big help as we set up the Off-Post Gaming Team and get the ball rolling on events, etc.

Cards Against Humanity was a big favourite, so that is one avenue we shall be exploring. People also requested cheaper and/or free-to-play online games, or ones that don't require a high-end Gaming PC to enjoy. Again, this is something we'll look to incorporate, and I will personally look to compile a list of free-to-play or low-cost games that don't demand high specs from the PC.

As an initial suggestion, the following games will run on most modest set-ups, and they don't cost the Earth:

  • Garry's Mod ::: £6.99 ::: Includes a lot of multiplayer mods/games, such as Zombie Defence, Murder!, Trouble in Terrorist Town, Prop Hunt... etc, all of which are free to download from the GMod Workshop.
  • Left 4 Dead 2 ::: £14.99 ::: A very fun multiplayer zombie shoot-em-up, that is relatively inexpensive, and can run on more modest PC and Laptops. Highly moddable, there is potential for high-levels of hilarity!
  • Team Fortress 2 ::: Free-to-Play ::: A fun and addictive team-bases shoot-em-up, with a whacky and quirky style. Immensely popular, and, best of all - FREE!

    I've personally played all of the above, and had a lot of fun doing so, and they are games I would recommend, and games that I believe could be a lot of fun to group-up and play with OTFers!

    We shall revert back with further Gaming news in the future!

    Hi everyone!

    After a consultation with the Ambassador on how they dealt with this problem last time and a day and a half of labor, Al and I've been able to winnow out the pesky avatar infestation.

    However, the invaders are just so cute that we decided to leave them as an option for a little while, for those who enjoy that sort of thing.

    Enjoy!
