Question A.

I will critique The Ginger Beacon's response to Question 1B. Placing a starbase in a sector with no Federation world or colony in it will place a hardship on Federation traders and trading partners requiring a port-of-call enroute to Senec or Oasis, do away with the defensive advantages of such a starbase, and also, deprive the starbase of the defensive structures of either Senec or Oasis. Additionally, it may serve to inflame the T'g'nar or the Nillavi and push them into anti-Federation expansionist activities. Finally, in the event of a Tzenkethi (or even a Cardassian) incursion into the sector, it would provide yet another Federation target, the defense of which might mean splitting your available fleet into segments too small to be of any real use.

Question B.

USS Maryland and USS Arcturus are my diverted starships.

Deployment of my ships will proceed as previously described, with my Tzenkethi Fast Response Force now only consisting of Gorkon and Perseverance (and then only after they have deployed sensor beacons). Because I am concerned about an underpowered force confronting the Tzenkethi, the Little Round Top will proceed directly to Oasis. Hope, meanwhile, will proceed to Nillavi on its diplomatic mission; out-reach to T'g'nar and Qorn will be postponed.

Question C

The Nillavi have filed a protest regarding the placement of our starbase. Hope's captain, who is now in Nillavi space on diplomatic assignment, is instructed to reiterate to the Nillavi that the Federation has a strict hand's off policy with Nillavi space, and in addition, that the Federation would be pleased to open our starbase as a port of call providing resupply, repair, and shore leave facilities for Nillavi civilian and military vessels.

Question D

The Senec had contacted the Qorn prior to Senec entry in the Federation; however, as Federation members now, does the Prime Directive apply? I inquire of the senior legal officer in the sector to investigate the legality and potentially refer the matter to Federation civilian authorities, and will continue to investigate exactly what is being delivered – if, for example, it turns out to be weapons, potentially arming one nation-state over another, I will use force to end this trade.

The ship which received the distress call is the Gorkon, and I am displeased that, as communicated to me, it appears the Gorkon is awaiting orders from me before responding; fortunately, upon contacting the ship, I learn the vessel has, in accordance with interstellar law and Starfleet policy, responded to the distress call, has offered assistance, and, after this offer was made and accepted, provided limited medical and engineering assistance until another T'g'nar vessel was able to arrive on scene.

While I don't believe the Nillavi are a danger, there are two options: the Nillavi are detonating advanced warheads outside of their space; or someone else is. While my first thought is to deploy sensor beacons near Nillavi space … given some of their recent concerns regarding placement of our starbase, they might view this as a provocation. I will order more beacons deployed along the Northern Border so that, when they enter the sector, I can now deploy USS Arcturus to Senec.

Question E

Two Nillavi military vessels engage an Orion cargo vessel within System S543 and give chase (several crewmembers of one of the Nillavi ships are killed in the engagement). One of your starships is able to intercept the Orion ship in System J0205, where, after a brief engagement which results in two fatalities aboard your vessel, and several on the Orion ship, your crew finds components necessary to the mounting of advanced weapon systems on starships, however, they do not find the weapons themselves. The Orion crew refuses to divulge information on their mission, and the Nillavi refuse to discuss why they had two ships in S543. However, the Nillavi point out that Starfleet was unaware of Orion weapon smuggling in the sector leaving the action to them, and demand that both the Orion ship and crew be turned over to them for prosecution.

Question One

A: Starfleet's priorities in this sector should be to support the well-being of all inhabitants and encourage co-operation between all political entities. To that end, diplomatic envoys should be sent to the Nillavi and the T'g'nar to inform them of our intent to set up a starbase in the sector. Determining their claims in the sector will be key in future relations, as well as informing them of the current galacto-political events. Should the Tzenkethi send envoys to the T'g'nar and/or Nillavi, we could have some interesting events forthcoming. Thorough patrols of all the uninhabited systems in the sector should be a routine in the event that the Tzenkethi decide the sector is appealing to them and try to set up a raiding base.

The Great Drift appears to be relatively lacking in information and warrants a detailed look. May also be a good hiding spot for Tzenkethi or perhaps rogue spatial/temporal anomalies (hey, you never know).

The relationship with Qorn is a bit of a grey area. They are pre-warp but have already been contacted by the Senac. Further information on how to handle this situation would be desirable, but trading in foodstuffs may be possible. Certainly no technology.

Support for the colonists on Oasis and bringing the Senac up to date with the current Federation average technological level is also high on the priority list.

B: I would like to park the Kedmar Starbase in the same system as Oasis. Not necessarily in orbit of Oasis, one of the other planets may be suitable depending on their disposition. Placing the starbase in a non-inhabited system would unnecessarily distance Starfleet resources from Oasis and Senac and may infringe on territorial claims by the Nillavi or the T'g'nari.

C: My transport to this system is the USS Zutshi NCC-62546. I would request the following ships from SF Command for efforts in this sector:

USS Hollander NCC-59817, Oberth class
USS Ellyson NCC-59841, Oberth class

These two ships will survey The Great Drift as well as updated surveys of the uninhabited systems.

USS Kaamil NCC-69737, Freedom class
USS Beresford NCC-70136, Freedom class
USS Atieno NCC-70211, Freedom class
USS Mayette NCC-70329, Freedom class

These four ships will patrol the sector, split into quadrants. Each ship will be assigned a 5x5 region based on the provided map, taking care not to infringe on T'g'nari or Nillavi sovereign claims:

-USS Kaamil in the upper left quadrant, home port Oasis;
-USS Beresford in the upper right, home port Oasis;
-USS Atieno in the lower right, home port Senac, and;
-USS Mayette in the lower left. home port Senac.

The Beresford will also provide support to the Hollander and Ellyson in their investigations of The Great Drift. USS Kaamil will also provide escort and interdiction duties for traffic traveling to/from Oasis. USS Atieno will also be responsible for monitoring trade traffic with the Qorn. USS Mayette will have the most difficult patrol, keeping a wide berth around the T'g'nari.

Additional vessels include:
USS Franjo NCC-69518, Istanbul class
USS Kaifeng NCC-69764, Istanbul class
(see ASDB for design)

These two ships will provide transport duties for goods within the sector as well as deploy sensor buoys on the trade routes between Oasis-Nillavi, Oasis-Senac, Nillavi-Senac, Senac-Qorn, and in the general vicinity of a route between Senac-T'g'nar.

USS Marc Antony NCC-56611, New Orleans class
USS Aarchun NCC-59322, Korolev class (also see ASDB)

These two will be the heavy hitters and showing the flag in the sector, divvying up the sector roughly in half between them. They will also be available for fast-response to any trouble spots that might come up.

I plan on transferring my command to the Marc Antony, leaving the Zutshi to be attached to the diplomatic envoy team.

Question Two

I'll be criticising Snay's response for part A.

A.a) I applaud further exploration of The Big Drift, however I'm a little leery of the suggestion of profiling the Nillavi society. I think we should be a bit more open minded with the approach to their potential membership and answer any concerns they may have about joining the UFP.

Meeting with the governments of all sovereign states in the sector is indeed a key priority, however deailing with the T'g'nari may not go well. I believe that any meetings arranged with the governments of these nations should be done through the Senac, who seem to be the default go-betweens of the sector.

The T'g'nar wish to be left alone, but I would be hesitant to say they have no interest in the sector. They may decide to expand their sphere of influence without notice or justification, something that should certainly be monitored.

A.b) Can't really argue with the logic of placing the starbase in the Oasis system. Although, given the delicate situation we find ourselves in this sector, I think the management and outfitting of this starbase should be less SB375 and more DSK7.

A.c) Only using one ship to chart The Big Drift seems like it may prolong the mission unnecessarily and invite shenanigans to a lone science vessel.

B: Due to the skirmish, the Marc Antony and the Atieno have been delayed. My command will remain on the Zutshi while the Aarchun will handle the diplomatic envoy team. The Zutshi will handle the Atieno's patrol in the lower right quadrant.

C: Starbase is in the Oasis system, everyone is happy. (By my reckoning, Oasis is at least 3-4 ly from Nillavi claims).

D.1) I take the Zutshi over to Senac to ask how things are going with the Qorn and if they need any assistance.

D.2) The Mayette sends a message to both the distressed T'g'nari warship as well as the T'g'nari homeworld asking if they may be of assistance, all the while heading towards the stricken warship on yellow alert.

D.3) Freedom class sensors aren't necessarily the best equipped for identifying weapons testing. I divert the Ellyson to within scanning range of the area identified by Beresford, all the while sending the Beresford's sensor logs to Kedmar 'Base for further analysis.

E) While scanning The Great Drift, your vessel detects what appears to be an old spaceship, dating approximately from the time of the initial colonization of the Nillavi cluster. Despite all efforts to keep this information under wraps until further analysis can be performed, both the Senac and the Nillavi find out about this vessel and lay claim to it as a lost exploration vessel. How do you handle these claims?

Question 2

A) I shall critique Omega's reply. Placing the station in orbit of Oasis makes good strategic sense to mitigate Tzenkethi threats, will encourage trade and aid in colony building. However it places the base of operations for the sector away from the Federation member planet and shifts the balance towards Oasis and away from Senac. This could lead to a diplomatic incident as the Senac may feel slighted.

Your decision to include runabouts in your request is very clever. Since runabouts are effectively starships in miniature they can do most jobs in the sector, at the cost of durability and size.

Your policy with the Qorn is sensible, as first contact has effectively been made already. The Tzenkethi situation is unknown as yet so it sensible to take precautions. A mutual assistance pact with the Nillavi would probably work well if they were to go for it.

B) Starfleet have granted me my requested ships in addition to the USS Frederickson (Excelsior Class) which I arrived with, my fleet will be:

USS Bentonville, Excelsior Class
USS Aquarius, Constellation Class
USS Shelbyville, Springfield Class
USS Minerva, Miranda Class
USS Rutledge, New Orleans Class
USS Bondi, Sydney Class
USS Baltic Ferry. Deneva Class
USS Moore, Obeth Class

Due to the recent skirmish USS Bentonville & USS Rutledge will be delayed.

Because of this I shall communicate with the Nillavi over subspace instead of in person. I shall offer them free travel from their space to the station and invite them to visit and take full advantage of our facilities for recreation and trade. I will stress our non aggression and alter patrols to the north so that they are further from their space.

The USS Moore will patrol south of Senac in lieu of the Rutledge and exploration of the Great Drift can wait as initial scans have shown it to be unexceptional. The USS Frederickson will be on standby to assist.

C) I do not believe that I can, after temporarily loosing the Bentonville and Rutledge, afford to take more ships to tow the station - it will have to stay put around S543. As expected the Nillavi are not too happy with this, but we have offered them the use of the station for shore leave and trade. We can extend this to repair if necessary and will not encroach further towards or upon their space without getting their permission first.

D.1) As contact was made between Senac and Qorn prior to the former joining the Federation I am happy for the two to continue trading. I will ask the Senac fleet to police trade as they see fit. However I have ordered all Starfleet ships to leave the Qorn alone until such time as they wish to open trade with the Federation as a whole, not just Qorn. Starfleet will only step in if it becomes apparent the Senac can or won't deal with any serious trade issues (e.g. illegal goods, smuggling etc.)

D.2) We are not at war with the T'g'nar, and as such the USS Moore has moved from it's patrol to assist the ship. They inform me of this and I order them to offer any necessary medial support and to offer to make the distressed ship secure until T'g'nar assistance arrives. The offer was begrudgingly accepted and the Moore was able to aid in restoring life support, but the T'g'nar crew declined medical assistance. Upon arrival the second T'g'nar ship thanked the Moore for helping but made it clear that they could handle it from there. USS Moore confirmed that we would assist again if called upon and then retired and continued on its assigned patrol.

D.3) I will alter my strategy to deploy a limited number of automated beacons to monitor the Nillavi from the north, allowing my patrol to continue further from their space and thus being less provocative. I will reassign the USS Shelbyville to patrol closer to Oasis and continue subspace niceties towards Nillavi. They are within their rights to develop such weapons if they want to and we should not provoke them.

E) One of your ships on patrol intercepts a suspicious trader, and impounds, among other items, a set of sculptures in their itinerary. The sculptures were originally from Senac, but were exported without permission by a collector to Navilli prior to independence. The Senac have wanted them back since, but the collector sold them to the Navilli government who put them on display in a museum. After independence they remained on display until they were stolen, along with other Navilli artworks about 15 years ago and have not been seen since. You have not informed either the Navilli or the Senac governments yet of your discovery. What course of action do you take and how do you decide who do you return them to?

I decided to post the next question a little early! Just don't consider this a precedent for next week. [Wink]

Question Three
  1. Respond to any two scenarios posed by other participants in part (E) of the previous question. (Assume that your two delayed starships have not yet arrived. Also, if you chose to move your starbase in part (C) last time, those ships are also not available for this response.)

  2. Respond to the following developments in the Kedmar Sector, detailing your fleet movements, diplomatic efforts, and any other actions taken by your staff. (By this time, the rest of your fleet has finally arrived. Also, if you chose to move your starbase last turn, that relocation has been completed.)

    1. The USS Chesapeake, on defensive patrol in the sector “north” of Kedmar, is attacked and crippled by a Tzenkethi raiding squadron. The battle took place about 5 light-years past the border of the Kedmar sector; it’s the furthest that the Tzenkethi have struck into Federation territory yet.

    2. A nation-state on Qorn engages in a border skirmish with one of its rivals. While this is not exactly unusual, what is unusual is that both sides are using plasma-based weaponry. The origin of this technology can’t be conclusively determined; all the non-Federation spacefaring cultures in this sector use similar weaponry.

    3. A scientific team surveying dense jungle on an uninhabited continent of Oasis makes a startling claim: there is a species of sauroid creatures that is starting to exhibit signs of developing intelligence. The closest analogue to Earth species would probably be Australopithecus. The claims have yet to be confirmed—but if they are, how will this discovery affect the Federation settlement on Oasis?

  3. The Nillavi contact the Federation with an urgent request for assistance. One of the stars in their cluster (H7417, known to them as Darev) is showing increasing signs of instability. For the past two decades, Darev V has been experiencing notably warmer climate due to increased solar radiation. They’ve been trying to cover up the true extent of their troubles, but the effects of the warming are growing more severe.

    The Nillavi report a couple immediate effects: First, Darev V produces about 30% of all foodstuffs for the entire Nillavi Syndicate. As crop yields drop, the impact to the entire cluster will be obvious. Second, population movement is starting to impact the other worlds of the cluster as people start fleeing Darev V. With the Nillavi’s already-high population density, they’re ill-equipped to absorb so many people, so quickly.

    Respond to the following questions and scenarios given recent developments:

    1. Compose a query your superiors at Starfleet. What additional resources, support, or intelligence do you require to start addressing this crisis? If you think you will need additional ships, specify the number and type of ships.

    2. The Nillavi attempt to open trading relations with the T’g’nari, with the goal of obtaining a new supply of food. However, the T’g’nari are not interested in any trade. The Nillavi ask the Federation to assist in the negotiations.

    3. A passenger transport carrying approximately 2,000 Nillavi refugees arrives at Oasis. The Oasis government is willing to help, but they’re concerned about opening the floodgates and becoming overwhelmed by refugees.

  4. Compose your own scenario that deals with the situation in the Nillavi Cluster.

Question Three

Respond to any two scenarios posed by other participants in part (E) of the previous question. (Assume that your two delayed starships have not yet arrived. Also, if you chose to move your starbase in part (C) last time, those ships are also not available for this response.)


Well, since this means there are only two scenarios to respond to:

Fabrux's: While scanning The Great Drift, your vessel detects what appears to be an old spaceship, dating approximately from the time of the initial colonization of the Nillavi cluster. Despite all efforts to keep this information under wraps until further analysis can be performed, both the Senac and the Nillavi find out about this vessel and lay claim to it as a lost exploration vessel. How do you handle these claims?

I declare the vessel to be a memorial and a gravesite and that it, and its crew, shall not be disturbed; and deploy a beacon to that effect.

And Ginger Beacon's: E) One of your ships on patrol intercepts a suspicious trader, and impounds, among other items, a set of sculptures in their itinerary. The sculptures were originally from Senac, but were exported without permission by a collector to Navilli prior to independence. The Senac have wanted them back since, but the collector sold them to the Navilli government who put them on display in a museum. After independence they remained on display until they were stolen, along with other Navilli artworks about 15 years ago and have not been seen since. You have not informed either the Navilli or the Senac governments yet of your discovery. What course of action do you take and how do you decide who do you return them to?

I return them to the estate of the original owners on Senac. I am particularly disappointed that Navilli museum would purchase items they must have known had been removed from Senac illegally. If the Navilli wish to pursue the matter, they are welcome to file a claim in the Federation judiciary system.

Respond to the following developments in the Kedmar Sector, detailing your fleet movements, diplomatic efforts, and any other actions taken by your staff. (By this time, the rest of your fleet has finally arrived. Also, if you chose to move your starbase last turn, that relocation has been completed.)

The USS Chesapeake, on defensive patrol in the sector “north” of Kedmar, is attacked and crippled by a Tzenkethi raiding squadron. The battle took place about 5 light-years past the border of the Kedmar sector; it’s the furthest that the Tzenkethi have struck into Federation territory yet.


Welp. I order the Pastur to the Northern Border Patrol force. I reiterate orders to these ships: they are NOT to engage a Tzenkethi ship or group of ships, but to monitor their movements and await for our heavy ships -- at Oasis -- to respond and engage.

A nation-state on Qorn engages in a border skirmish with one of its rivals. While this is not exactly unusual, what is unusual is that both sides are using plasma-based weaponry. The origin of this technology can’t be conclusively determined; all the non-Federation spacefaring cultures in this sector use similar weaponry.

All ships bound from Senec or Oasis to Qorn will be subject to cargo inspections. While regretful, these inspections will be conducted to ensure that there are no violations of the Prime Directive. Additionally, we will utilize our sensor beacons to determine who else is visiting Qorn.

A scientific team surveying dense jungle on an uninhabited continent of Oasis makes a startling claim: there is a species of sauroid creatures that is starting to exhibit signs of developing intelligence. The closest analogue to Earth species would probably be Australopithecus. The claims have yet to be confirmed—but if they are, how will this discovery affect the Federation settlement on Oasis?

If this information is confirmed, we will have to evacuate the population from Oasis and do everything we can to erase our presence on the planet. We will also need to move the starbase, but if they're just beginning to develop intelligence, this is perhaps something that can be done within the decade.

The Nillavi contact the Federation with an urgent request for assistance. One of the stars in their cluster (H7417, known to them as Darev) is showing increasing signs of instability. For the past two decades, Darev V has been experiencing notably warmer climate due to increased solar radiation. They’ve been trying to cover up the true extent of their troubles, but the effects of the warming are growing more severe.

The Nillavi report a couple immediate effects: First, Darev V produces about 30% of all foodstuffs for the entire Nillavi Syndicate. As crop yields drop, the impact to the entire cluster will be obvious. Second, population movement is starting to impact the other worlds of the cluster as people start fleeing Darev V. With the Nillavi’s already-high population density, they’re ill-equipped to absorb so many people, so quickly.

Respond to the following questions and scenarios given recent developments:

Compose a query your superiors at Starfleet. What additional resources, support, or intelligence do you require to start addressing this crisis? If you think you will need additional ships, specify the number and type of ships.


Well, we need a ship equipped with Dr. Reyga's metaphasic shielding technique to get into the sun, and determine what's wrong, and if we can do anything about it. While we wait on that ...

We can immediately provide basic industrial food replicators to the Nillavi. This should help with the food issues they may experience, but they will need to accept that these replicators will be under Federation supervision. In addition to requesting these replicators from Starfleet (my staff will determine quantity), I am going to request the transfer of several transport vessels to distribute these replicators across the Nillavi planets).

Evacuating a planet quickly is going to take thousands of starships, and there's no time to waste. The Nillavi need to begin devoting their resources to this task (and our transports which will deliver the replicators can then move to assist). Meanwhile, Starfleet can identify planets which have preselected for potential colonization. Preferably, these worlds will be within one or two sectors of the Nillavi sector, but any port in a storm.

The Nillavi attempt to open trading relations with the T’g’nari, with the goal of obtaining a new supply of food. However, the T’g’nari are not interested in any trade. The Nillavi ask the Federation to assist in the negotiations.

The Federation is of course willing to help, but adding a second knock to a front door that will never be opened doesn't lead anywhere.

A passenger transport carrying approximately 2,000 Nillavi refugees arrives at Oasis. The Oasis government is willing to help, but they’re concerned about opening the floodgates and becoming overwhelmed by refugees.

Whether or not the transport is permitted to land is up to Oasis; but I do communicate to the Nillavi the situation in the jungles there. If there is a sentient species developing on the planet, anyone they send to Oasis will just need to be evacuated. Further transports will need to be directed elsewhere.

Compose your own scenario that deals with the situation in the Nillavi Cluster.

Compose your own scenario that deals with the situation in the Nillavi Cluster.

There has been unrest and rioting in some cities of Darev V. The Nillavi, with their already stretched resources, have requested Federation troops to quell the rioting.

Out of hand, I reject sending troops in. This a matter for the Nillavi police. However, the Hope will be available to provide whatever medical or other emergency aid may be needed on an immediate basis. I have also given the Hope's captain a wide latitude in responding to Nillavi requests for emergency aid.

In more detail, here is the scenario:

Riots have broken out on Darev V, including in the planetary capital. There has been destruction and the loss of life. With Nillavi forces occupied elsewhere, and police resources stretched to the limit on Darev V, the planet's governor has contacted Starfleet directly with a request for Federation troops to end the riot and restore order.

Question Three

A.1) (Snay) I kindly point out to the Nillavi that as both S543 and J0205 is outside of their sovereign space, that they have agreed to Starfleet's presence as the enforcers of the sector, and that it was the USS Kaamil that eventually subdued the Orion vessel, we will retain custody of the Orion vessel and its crew at Kedmar Base pending a full investigation. Furthermore, we will share all our findings with the Nillavi government to ascertain who was the intended recipient for these weapon components.

A.2) (Ginger Beacon) Being that possession is 9/10ths of the law and the Nillavi have maintained possession of these sculptures for centuries, the most prudent course of action would be the return the sculptures to them. If the Senac wish to negotiate with the Nillavi for the return of these sculptures to their place of origin, I offer Starfleet's services as a mediator.

B.1) I dispatch the USS Marc Antony to aid the USS Chesapeake in the northerly sector. I also send an update to the USS Kaamil and USS Beresford to be wary of potential Tzenkethi activity along the northern border of the sector. I also post the USS Aarchun to the northern half of the quadrant while Marc Antony is assisting Chesapeake while the USS Zutshi continues to patrol the southern half.

B.2)I dispatch the USS Hollander to Qorn to conduct a survey of the planet to search for plasma-based weapons in an effort to determine their source. An undercover cultural team (think the team on Tilonus IV) is also assigned to investigate on the surface. The USS Atieno re-directs its patrols to stay close to Qorn and monitor traffic in-and-out of the system. I also send envoys to Senac and Nillavi to inquire about the incident and if they supplied the weapons to the Qorn. If the Senac are only trading with certain nation-states on Qorn, and one of them is one of the nation-states in question, they will be looking awfully suspicious.

B.3)All new colonists to Oasis are asked to delay their planetfall indefinitely. The continent in question is quarantined and declared off-limits to current Oasis colonists. I send a request to the Daystrom Institute for their best xenologists to investigate this sauroid species. I also send a request to the Saurian Science Institute to send their best saurologists for insight into this developing species.

C.1) Further investigation into what is happening to Darev is needed. If their is anything that can be done to stabilize the star, these efforts will be offered to the Nillavi. A request for stellar experts is sent out.

I request permission to offer the Nillavi industrial food replicators to help supplement their food supply with the condition that they are installed and operated by Starfleet personnel.

I also commission a study to determine how many ships will be required to evacuate Darev V in the least amount of time, and how many of the required ships will be available in the near future.

C.2) I stress to the Nillavi that the T'g'nari have rejected or ignored all attempts at relations from the UFP. Given that we are relative newcomers to the sector, however, they may be open to negotiations with a long-time local. We offer to assist the Nillavi in negotiations with the T'g'nari under the condition that our assistance will only be available if they think it will improve their chances. I advise the Nillavi that they may be better off on their own or with the assistance of Senac.

C.3) Being that Oasis is currently closed to new arrivals, I advise the refugees that they are welcome at Kedmar Base for the short term however they will need to find long-term arrangements. I open negotiations with the Senac about accepting refugees as well as positing the question to my superiors about the possibility of settling refugees on an uninhabited continent on Qorn.

D) Word of the events in the Nillavi Cluster spreads fast. Within a month of the initial contact from the Nillavi requesting assistance, patrols suggest that there is a T'g'nar convoy en route to Darev V. As far as you know, no negotiations have yet to be made with the T'g'nari in regards to aid, and your patrols have not been able to get close enough to the convoy to determine if they are freighters carrying foodstuffs or armed vessels looking for a fight...

Hate to say it, but I'm probably going to have to skip this week. I have no days off this weekend, what with a rearranged work schedule and family duties. I promise I'm not abandoning the scenario, though! [Smile]
