fellow Rihannsu, from the Romulan Star Empire. I am Commander Tal, captain
of the Romulan Imperial Navy Starship D'Deridex. This is the third vessel
to bear that name, and each ship and crew has a glorious record of service
in the Romulan Imperial Navy - a reputation you should be proud to uphold.
Any topic is open for discussion, within reason - we wouldn't want to
tarnish our reputation in front of our Terran allies. The D'Deridex is
currently docked at Outpost 10F, along
with the Federation starship Enterprise
and the Klingon vessel Rotarran.
All alien races are more than welcome to visit any of the ships docked
at Outpost 10F.
Every member of Outpost 10F has a clearance level. If you decide to register you will be assigned the clearance level of two. You will have the same clearance level no matter which affiliation you choose. (You can participate in the chatroom without registering, but you will not have access to all of its special features.) As you become more involved in Outpost 10F's departments, activities and events, you will have the opportunity to gain higher clearance levels. The highest a crewmember may be promoted to is clearance level eleven. In order to become promoted you must exhibit good behavior, follow our Prime Directives (listed below), and be respectful of fellow officers. As you work your way up the rank ladder you will earn various privileges. These include general armory usage at clearance level four, HTML abilities at clearance level six, and special login features at clearance level seven.
The D'Deridex offers a high level of cuisine and you can order drinks and meals for yourself and your fellow crewmembers from our bar. While at the mess hall, you should find our chef and proprietor, T'Lera, helpful in finding what you require. T'Lera is the owner of a very successful soup business on Romulus. Treat her with respect, she is your hostess. Officers with a clearance level of four and above have access to our armory, which contains various weapons. Some are used purely for entertainment, whilst others are used to remove any unwanted guests.
While we are docked here, we observe the rules of Outpost 10F, which are termed Prime Directives. The Outpost is a family-friendly, global community and these Directives are for the protection of all members. Do your best to follow them, and feel free to ask another officer if there is something you don't understand.
A more detailed version of these directives can be found here.
I would like to introduce you to some of my esteemed fellow officers that will assist you in getting acquainted with this ship and Outpost10F. The Sector Commander and Deputy Sector Commander are both here to oversee chat operations, coordinate promotions, assist with special projects, and be available to the members to address their concerns. Please feel free to contact them at any time with chatroom issues.
The Intelligence and Security Agency (ISA) is a group that helps in the chatroom in many ways. They keep us informed about the latest viruses, and remind members of the Prime Directives when necessary. While these members do carry phasers and are able to remove troublemakers in the various vessels, their main goal is to keep the Outpost safe and family-friendly.
Another team of people who are here to assist you are the members of the Welcome Committee. You will hear from one of them when you register, and their job in the chatrooms is to be available to assist you as you get used to our systems and functions.
Finally, I suggest you check out the following links. These pages contain information that will help you understand our systems and structure.
The documentation site contains detailed information regarding various aspects of Outpost 10F. Humuhumunukunukuapua'a, our tutorial fish, has some information about using the chat interface. You can also read detailed information about the role of promotions at Outpost 10F and use the Profile Management System to manage your member data and view your access rights.
Outpost10f is a base unique in the alpha or beta quadrants, representing a great Romulan/Federation/Klingon alliance. It is in this spirit I welcome you. May you serve your Empire, the D'deridex and the Outpost well!
