New Player, New Ship, New Beginning

First and foremost, we now have our chief intelligence officer, Lt. Leonora Wollf played by Kay. Let's give her our warmest welcome!!
I'm also happy to report that most important parts of the site have been updated to reflect our new ship, the Arcadia, and that includes a new skin for the site (you can change the skin the site uses after you log in by changing the setting under "site option").
As for our ship, the Arcadia has a few quirks that set her apart from most ships in the fleet, and they are worth keeping in the back of your mind as you work on your posts. The most obvious would be its distinction as the largest ship in the OF along with the other ships of the Elysium class. Less obvious is the fact that the ship's bridge is deep inside the saucer section on deck 18 as opposed to the usual deck 1. This provides it with additional protection from enemy fire during battle.
More relevant to the ship's daily operation would be the extensive implementation of holographic technology. The ship is nearly 100% holographic accessible, and most access points have holographic user interface projected over the physical consoles/terminals as default with physical interface as a backup. The "ship tour" page has a few pictures to give you an idea of how it would look like.
The Arcadia is currently docked at the Beta Antares Ship Yards, and IC we are about two weeks before Mission Day 1. That would give us some time to push our recruitment effort. Once we have the mandatory minimum of six players, we will promptly depart the ship yards and begin MD 01.
Well, that's it for now. As always, if you have any questions or suggestions, just let me know! =)
