I have some sad news to share.

The mother of one of our (former) members, SyNii (Michael Ayres) passed away. As they are very low on money, but do want to give her a good ceremony, (which'll help him to properly say goodbye) they've started a GoFundme. More is explained on the page.

I hope it's okay for me to share it here. Michael didn't think he would be remembered by many, but I beg to differ.

Hello All,

I hope you are all well, and hopefully keeping safe during this pandemic world. (Who would have thunk that would be said in a message).

Just reaching out to say I miss my Outpost family, and I just wanted to put a post on the updates board because it is shocking to see not a single post in 2021, and hopefully it is because people are living in the real world, and not pandemic related. Hope you all had a great 2021, and have great plans ahead for 2022, and if you need to catch up, I am always on the OTF discord group.

Love you all - David

And now for the armory results!

We also had a Greedo bullying shooting contest! We have three separate categories for this: Total number of shots, quickest shot, and cleverest shot / bar orders / whatever in relation to Greedo being in the room. Here are the results!

Total number of shots
Keith - 11
Michiel - 4
Pheebs - 3
Brent - 3
Naberrie - 1
Steph - 1

Quickest shot
Keith - 6s
Brent - 6s
Michiel - 9s
Pheebs - 12s
Naberrie - 16s
Steph - 17s

Cleverest shot
This award goes to Michiel. He shot Greedo once for Greedo having Michiel as his running mate, stating it was not acceptable for Michiel to not be the "big cheese". Greedo came back with Michiel as the "big cheese," whereupon Michiel blasted him again, stating he cannot handle the responsibility of being the "big cheese."
Runner up goes to Pheebs for ordering Greedo a delicious barrel of w00tstout intsead of shooting him.

Big thanks to everyone who exercised their trigger fingers for this one! Keith takes two of the three categories, and Michiel takes the award for cleverest shot!
Now let's give poor Greedo a break for a while. If you see him around, buy him a drink at least before you shoot him. Until next time!

Hello friends! The anniversary month is upon us! In the spirit of years past, we are going to run a couple of events in the weeks leading up to the anniversary, which will be celebrated on 22-23 August this year. With that in mind, here is some more information:

Starting Monday 3 August, keep your eyes open for special agents of Spectre who may be stopping by to ask you trivia questions! We have an inside source that tells us they will be stopping by at 8pm UTC and 8pm PDT, although they may make other surprise visits! In a departure from your typical trivia, these points will be tallied throughout the entire event and a winner will be crowned at the anniversary celebrations. Points will be awarded for the first correct answer, as well as any silly answers the Spectre Agent likes.

Also! That pesky Greedo has been seen lurking around the Cantina. Keep your eyes open for him and shoot him on site! Awards will be given for the quickest shot, and for the most creative armory usage against poor Greedo. Get your trigger fingers ready!

May the Force be ever in your favor!

OTF celebrates the life of one of its beloved family members, Carol, who has gone before us to prepare the way to the stars.

Carol joined OTF in September of 2001. Most recently she was the senior editor of the Blue Report, along with her sister Leslie, and before that was instrumental in the reorganization of the Department structure and was co-manager of the Holodeck alongside Hobbie. A frequent chatter, she was never short of creative ideas to get and keep her fellow OTFers engaged in what was going on.

She loved the fall, and specifically Pumpkin Spice Lattes. So, let’s all have a PSL in her memory as we recall her energetic and creative personality, along with the hard work, dedication, and most of all the love, that she poured into OTF in order to make us all a little bit better.

Thank you for everything, Carol.
We miss you dearly.

Hello, people of the Seven Kingdoms! Winter is here!

Over the last few days we have been posting pictures on Twitter of Game of Thrones characters! We wanted to let you all know that they are available as avatars in King's Landing! Below is the whole group of new avatars that were created for you to enjoy. So, enjoy!

Also a note that the chat rooms are to be considered spoiler-free zones. If you want to talk about the latest episode, please open a temporary room, or ask someone CL6+ to open one for you. This is a zero tolerance policy. We want to give everyone a fair chance to enjoy the show without it being spoiled. This will be in effect for the duration of the show, plus an additional time (probably an additional two weeks, for eight weeks in total). We thank you for your understanding.

Winter is here, and so are the new avatars! What is Brent may never die.

A huge thank you to Carol for creating the avatars!

Hey guys!

We're back with another issue of The Blue Report! It's a very exciting issue! Why? Oh because... *drum roll* The Blue Report has received a make-over! Yay! Thanks to a combined effort of Leslie/Wyvern, Mashed Potatoes, Katrina, Al, and myself The Blue Report is looking pretty spiffy right now! So at the very least go check that out.

In this month's issue you will find articles written by Mashed Potatoes, Keith Is Brilliant, Mr. Numbahs, Sasha_J, The Bridge Crew, Nathalie, Leslie, and myself! With a variety of articles it is our hope that there is something there for everyone to read. And feel free to leave comments on the articles! We love it when you do!

Coming soon to a Holodeck near you:

Over the next few days, the Outpost is celebrating couples. Not because Valentine's Day dictates we should, but because we want to. It really is just a coincidence that we are starting on that day, and you cannot prove otherwise!

At various times, and based on when the chat attendance is high, be on the lookout for some of our Holodeck spectres, as they are likely to start posting images depicting couples from our favorite science fiction and fantasy series. After each picture is posted, you may attempt to identify the characters shown or to come up with a witty caption for the picture. Scoring will be similar to a Trivia event, where the first participant to correctly identify both characters will be awarded an RP, and the funniest captions will receive SPs.

We hope you have fun and do not spam the Betazoid Gift Box too much and do not forget to shoot Greedo if he pops up, he seems to have broken free once again.

After boldly going in to a blackhole the USS Trivia pulled through and set course for an interesting event....

After waiting an extra 15 minutes to allow more people to show up for the General Star Trek trivia things got underway. Our first real point went to returning member, Alice Ellen Hook. From there Keith took the reigns to show us that he knows everything about Star Trek while managing to not be nerdy. Along the way to crowning a trivia master there were spookyfish floating and laughter being shared! It was indeed like a Rhapsody sung by a Borg wearing green!

Now on to the important part! The points are as follows....

Real Points:
Keith - 6
Jade - 3
Alice Ellen Hook - 1
Robert - 1

Silly Points:
Tyler - 9
Nathalie - 9
Tanya - 8
Robert - 6
Jade - 4
