Come rest your heels among friends and let me tell you a story..
It's for people like us.
The gamblers, the risk takers, heart breakers, the restless. It's the land of opportunity promised to our ancestors when we could only dream of wishing on stars, never quite daring to touch one. The time is ours. This is our ship. These our our stories.
We are the crew of the Langport.

So, hello to everyone. As our XO said, I've come on board as the new CO.
We should be getting things going here again soon.
More information on my character will go up over the next few weeks, but if you have any questions about her, feel free to ask me and I will see if I can remember than information.

I want you all to give a warm welcome to Captain Anna Feildman, our new commanding officer. I know we've been waiting a little longer than we though, so she wanted to get added sooner rather than later.
Her biography is still being worked on, but the basics are there and she is excited about getting into the game with us. Over the next few days I will be filling her in on what has been going on, as well as discussing what our next plot is going to entail.
On the issue of her rank... Due to Pegasusfleet rules, she has to be set at the rank of Commander to start. That being said, as far as In-Character goes, the character itself is a Captain. I'd like us to treat her character that way; the promotion issue is more or less a formality, and an out of character issue, rather than an in-story one.
Thank you all once again, for your patience as we work through the transition. Now that she's been added, we should get underway in fairly short order. I want everyone to wish her a warm welcome!

Wow! What a month it has been for the Langport.
It is never easy for a CO to make the heavy decision as to whether or not to step down, especially from a sim that they love. It is with that in mind that we all bid farewell to Captain Maksima. Though the last few months have been extremely tough, we all know how much she cared about this sim, and the players. I think many of us can agree that we hope there will be a day when she can return.
That said, we must forge on. Many of you have decided to stick with the sim, and I am pretty damn pleased about it. This sim is fairly unique and awesome. For those of you that have decided to step down from your positions, I wanted to once more thank you for the time you spent here, and leave an open invitation for future returns.
I wanted to point out that just in the last two weeks we've managed to get five logs up. That's quite an accomplishment, all things considered! I've sent out a few joint posts, and will most likely be sending out a few more this up-coming week. As always, feel free to write solo logs or tag me in a log if you should desire.
A brief update about our oncoming CO; she is in the process of completing her application and creating a new character. Once that has been completed and she has been evaluated by the Admiralty, I believe she'll be added to the roster and we will write her in. In the meantime, the Langport is going to remain in drydock, story-wise. That said, I will continue to promote posting, and if the process is delayed for any reason may come up with a mini-plot.
Thank you all for your patience as we go through these odd, untimely transitions. This sim was built up by some amazing writers and an amazing CO - let's try and keep that legacy alive.

Look look look! We have new people!
Please give some love to our new XO Validus Sicarius! I'm sure there'll be a salad named after him in the mess hall in no time. Just be nice and proper 'cause he's a big Andorian type fella and he could probably step on you. Also- we lost an Andorian and gained one in the same mission. It's like a blue revolving door.
Also share a little love with our bear of an OPs chief Oscar Djokovic! He'll love you back most probably. I'm so glad to finally have someone in OPs!
And welcome back Michelle who is now our CMO the good and sweet doctor Danielle Davenport with her sweet little kidlet Aiden. Be nice and be prolific 'cause you know she likes to post a LOT.
There are two more apps proposed: one for an Intel chica and the other is unknown so far. So stay tuned: we're growing!
In other news, Nova is broke. According to Nova peeps, all will be fixed in the new patch. According to host peeps they need upwards of a month to fix stuff in relation to the site. So check often for posts because they may catch and if you're sending in an app, keep a copy. You're better off sending the CO (me) your app so I can input it manually.
It wouldn't be the Langport if stuff wasn't broken, right?

It seemed like forever since the last time Commander Sicarius had eaten. The Captain, in her weakened state, had all but left him in command of the ship while repairs were underway. Between that and he desperate need to focus on his own studies, he had lost himself in work…
Fudge's gait was very familiar to Madeline. She's witnessed it thousands and thousands of times. But more than that, she'd programmed him to move that way. Eversince the very first spiderbot prototype, the locomotion subroutines hadn't moved much.

Sickbay was dead quiet. A few people milled about, nurses checking them over quietly. There was a hum of medical equipment, and a distinctly sharp antisceptic scent in the air.

Phew. That took some doing, fixing that sizable crash. Most secondaries and some primaries had gone out when a relay blew, taking several primary distribution nodes with it.

A skittering sound announced to those present that the eccentric engineering chief's personal assistant, Fudge, was making its way through the corridors. It was on a mission. It had a destination. And once it arrived at the door to Sicarius' office, it sent a small signal to the doorchime to…
