The quotes are not from this forum but from the blog

I absolutely agree with that, great!

Just like in an episode of one of the shows, it is your crew that informs you of a situation, provides more information, or offers options for action.
That sounds like a tough challenge. Though I think you're doing well with it. The things you have written sound well organized and thoughtfull. I'm really looking forward to playing "my" first missions to see if they fit my imaginations of the Star Trek universe.
The way I read these things makes me think that missions are going to be like small episodes from Star Trek, which I think is the best way of doing it. For the feeling of being a main character in one of these episodes I could even take some limitations in my actions or choices, if they are not to harsh.

So, all in all I have to say: great job, great piece of reading, thanks a lot!
