I would like to welcome you to the USS Tikal. My name is Capt. Charles Redex Sr. and I'm the Commanding Officer of this fine vessel.
We are proud members of Bravo Fleet, Task force 99.
The year is 2388 and we are functioning in a post Dominion War environment.
The Tikal is an Enigma class vessel previously commanded by Captain Tyler Marshall and now under my command;I was his XO. Most of the crew was transferred from the USS Oberon when, due to a major engagement with the Yang Zutal, the ship needed extensive repairs.
The Tikal is one part of StarFleet’s defence against those foes and will continue to serve the federation in this mission.
Capt. Charles Redex Sr.
CO, USS Tikal-A

Life Preserver has been saved. The Bruce portion has been saved in a separate JP for those on the Bruce (Amarith, Terri, Deke, etc.). EVERYONE else is either on a shuttle or escape pod and waiting for rescue from the Bruce. Please keep your writing consistent with what is going on. If you have any questions...please ask before putting it in writing so their is no more confusion. Remember....this is about the aftermath and waiting and being rescued....nothing else. And since we still are not getting email notifications on mission posts...please check the site frequently for tags.

The Preservers post had become erratic and was subsequently moved. It has be sent to a folder and can be returned once the edited continuity our our rescue has been perimetered.
* Lt Miranda Black Fur is the shuttle commander and all shuttle pilots should be following her as she will track down the Bruce.
Everyone else Find a pilot and stay with your people. What would be good is if several jp's go out with interaction as to how your coping.
A general jp will follow where we all meet up with the Bruce and taken home.
This jp will conclude our Romulan mission and when we arrive to McKinley we will focus on the new ship and changes that follow.
Have fun and enjoy.......
