A weary group of chatters settled in and began testing their knowledge of Star Trek Alien Species... With one tired host, one helpful score keeper, a server blep, and many laughs they sought the ultimate champion. Although many of the chatters had vast knowledge of Star Trek aliens a lone champion was crowned! Who dazzled us with their knowledge of Star Trek Species and who was that champion you ask? Why, these fine people...

REAL POINTS:
Jade - 9
Robert - 6
Tanya - 3
John - 1

And with the help of many chatters we had a champion of hilarity helping to keep the search for our Star Trek Alien Species Genius light and funny! Thanks for the laughs guys!

SILLY POINTS:
AJ - 13
Tanya - 10
Jade - 10
Robert - 8
AJ's Brother - 6
Germ - 4
Arwen - 2
Ayanna - 2
T'Pel - 1
Thor - 1


A couple of special "special" points were handed out as well...
A Fifty Shades of -NO- Point to Jade and a Pumpkin Spice Point to Robert

A special thank you to Jessica for arranging this trivia and writing the questions/answers! Also a special thank you to Leslie for keeping track of the scores for me!

Thanks for attending!

FOUR DOZEN EGGS
DISNEY VILLAINS TRIVIA RESULTS!


The initial intention was for this Trivia to be in THREE parts, but we had so much fun in today's round that we ended up finishing early. How embarrassing... Anyway...

Thank you for tuning in to the results of FOUR DOZEN EGGS Trivia, where that was *ahem* NOT an answer for ANY of the questions, thankyouverymuch.

This was a really fun way to have an event, as a greater amount of chatters were able to be involved due to the additional time frames! We had a staggering 16 participants! The first round over the weekend saw a five-way tie that Tanya finally broke, while Brent DOMINATED the silly playing field. However, the tables turned in round 2, as Leslie showed up with her encyclopedic Disney knowledge (including earning one point by shouting at me, apparently) and Robert put his current life skills to good use with a variety of dad jokes and took over the title. Also, Navi the oddly overenthusiastic host was a bit Oprah-like in her delivery of special points, so those in themselves have a winner (or two)! Results are as follows!

RP's:

Leslie - 4
Carol - 3
Tanya - 3
T'Pel - 3
Brent - 3
Robert - 2

SP's:

Robert - 12
Carol - 10
Brent - 9
Ray - 8
Mashed Potatoes - 7
Max - 5
Adge - 4
Tanya - 4
T'Pel - 4
Arwen - 3
Leslie - 3
Katrina - 2
Shaker - 1
Missy - 1
Senses - 1
Shannon - 1

Special Points:

Wrong Movie Points - Shaker
Rhyming Points - Brent and Carol
Keep it Clean Point - Robert
Tom Petty Points - Brent and Carol
Ass-Kissing Points - Adge and Carol
Too Soon Points - Brent, Carol, Robert, and Katrina
L2 Point - Adge
Nice Try Point - Ray
Four Dozen Eggs Points - Carol, Robert, and Brent
Spam Point - Brent
Inappropriate But Yes Please Point - Ray
FINE HAVE A SPOOKYPOINT - Brent
Gassy Points - Tanya, Leslie, Carol, and Max

...and finally...
Host Fail Point - Navi

That's all for today! (I think that's enough, don't you?) Congratulations to Leslie and Robert for winning the event, and congratulations to Brent and Carol for being the Sideshow Winners, and stay tuned for the next event! We have some fun things in the works for Trivia and for HALLOWEEN!

Ridiculous Trivia Results


Hello all!

What an event! The Ridiculous, fill-in-the-blanks, Outpost Trivia had us all rolling in the aisles with laughter, thanks to the efforts of everyone who took part! It was a brilliant event, with some even more brilliant, witty, clever, and often border-line answers, and we learned about Guinan's varying pitch, how ISA relax after duty, and what the smudge marks on Tanya's windows really are!

The result was never really in doubt, and it was Michiel who triumphed by a comfortable margin in the end, picking up 12 points! Here's a full break-down of the final scores:

Michiel - 12
Navi - 8
Robert - 6
Tanya - 6

Anniversary Prizes!


Hello all!

During this anniversary, as before, house points are going to be awarded throughout the duration of the anniversary for the various events we have scheduled. As before, house points are collected individually and go towards whichever house you have been sorted into - remember to put your house in your tagline!

This year, however, house points will carry additional weight. The three members who collect the most house points will each also receive a prize! The prizes are as follows:

  • First Place: A prize worth £75
  • Second Place: A prize worth £50
  • Third Place: A prize worth £25

    The winners will be announced shortly after the conclusion of the anniversary festivities, and the winners contacted and arrangements made for the awarding of the prizes. The prizes can take several forms, determined by the winners, such as Steam gift cards, Amazon gift cards (etc)

    If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me and I will do my best to assist!

    Important Information:
    These will be issued in the winners' local currencies (eg, US Dollar, Euro, Canadian Dollar, Pound Sterling etc.) at a value equivalent to £75 (GBP) £50 (GBP) and £25 (GBP) for first, second and third place respectively. Conversions will be based on exchange rates at the time of issue. To avoid potential conflicts, members of the Bridge Crew will be exempt from prizes, and should a Bridge Crew member finish in any of the top three places, the prizes will move down to the next available member. To any who provides a voluntary donation to the Outpost, rest assured your funds are not being used to fund this venture. All funds have come directly from Bridge Crew members.

    Hello!

    We apologize for the delay in this announcement. Our announcement droid was overworked and needed to not only rest but refuel as well. Pesky droids. Anywhooo, on to the matter at hand!

    During the anniversary the Kiss The Wookiee Bullseye Style contest will be taking place! Yay! Are you excited? I know I am!

    What You Need To Know:
    - During the anniversary mysterious guests will be showing up at random times.
    - The mysterious guests will have a variety of requests for you. (You won't be just shooting them out.)
    - The first person to achieve the guest's request? Gets the point!

    An example of what to look for? Chewie logging in and asking for a kiss! The first person to kiss Chewie will get the point.

    So get your armory ready, get your bar ready, and get your google ready because you never know what our guests will ask for! And keep your eyes open for one of our guests! (Also; have fun!)

    Winners will be announced on Sunday as per the anniversary schedule!

    Thanks!

    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!

    Anniversary Kickoff Events


    This year, we are going to change things up a bit and have a couple of events run UNTIL the Anniversary commences! One of these events is all too familiar to some of you old folks long-time members, and that is...



    The Voting Booth is a fun way to recognize chatters for...more unconventional accomplishments. While it's always nice to include people who frequent the chat NOW, you can feel free to toss some names in there from the past if anyone really stands out to you, and maybe that might serve as incentive for them to come back! Votes will be tallied on Friday, August 24, so get your votes in as quickly as possible! Click on the image to get started.

    A new event that we are PREMIERING this year is a contest! Get ready for the Outpost's version of...

    2. Chatters may submit for each story title ONE time. Additional submissions will not be considered.

    5. All submissions must be sent in by 12:00UTC on Friday, August 24 to allow time for us to prepare the results.
