  1. RRF Captain Cybyl’s synopsis of the Star Trek Online News for week ending 05/15/2016:
    To celebrate Star Trek’s 50th anniversary, a new expansion was announced May 5th: ‘Agents of Yesterday’. ’Agents of Yesterday’ will allow players to create a new captain in Star Trek: The Original Series era and will set them on an adventure featuring classic story lines, locations, celebrities, and era-appropriate starships. In 2270, the year following the third TV season of the original series, the player will adventure with Walter Koenig, reprising his role of Chekov, and Chris Doohan, filling in for his late father as Scotty. There is a new threat to the security of the Federation, and they are invading with hopes of overwhelming the past to destroy our future. More details are available on the Star Trek Online website <>.
  2. But that’s not all: as added incentive, the ’Agents of Yesterday’ Beta will be open to Gold and Lifetime subscrption members on the Tribble Beta server. A Tutorial episode, ’The Taurean Affair’, where a science survey vessel has gone missing near the Murasaki-312 nebula. Starfleet Command believes it may have crash landed on Taurus II, the same planet that cost the lives of two Starfleet officers several years ago. As first officer of a Pioneer-class starship, you will be leading a landing party to the surface of the planet to discover the fate of the survivors. Additional Beta stories in the story arc will also be added until official launch, however, once ‘Agents of Yesterday’ is officially released, all these and more episodes will be available to all players.

So, we have been kinda busy in EVE.

Where should I begin?

I know! Let’s talk about back when AIEU was living in Fountain.

You see back in the day AIEU used to be part of TEST Alliance Please Ignore and all was good with the world.

We use to fight with this group called the CFC and they became the strongest group in the game and we were cool.

Until one day, the Fire Nation Attacked!

The CFC who has changed their name to The Imperium decided that we were no longer cool and kicked TEST from it’s home in Fountain.

We were kind of mad because Hoots had just started to run Planetary Interactions in our part of space.

So we went gypsy and wandered Faction Warfare and we decided to leave TEST and join this alliance called BRAVE.

And for a while things were cool. We were even able to find a new ancestral home land.

And then BRAVE blew up.

And we went gypsy once again and we decided to really check out a new alliance.

And we did, and this alliance used to be in the CFC and they were betrayed when the Fire nation… I mean the CFC kicked them out. Because they were independently minded and ask questions.

And that’s our show for tonight. While the chatroom begins suggesting show titles, we want to thank Lanc for joining us.
