And with that admiral, it seems we have an accord.
I have seen a lot of good men die and alot of young ships morph from top of the line to space dust because we are ill informed and trained. Left to roam free from SFA with bright eyes and bushy tails and filled with the sickness of hope and acceptance. Reliance in the prime directive... to boldly go where no one has gone before, only to return with horror stories that no one wants to hear. The buck will stop here with us, it has come this far and no further.
So the imposing question here is what do we do about it? We have yet to discuss it.
What will kill everything without a federation comm badge? Not stun, not detour, not scare. Kill.
It needs to be universal Ladies and gentlemen. A cookie cutter model that we can churn out at high numbers for as minimal cost as possible to the captain implementing it. It has to have ease of use. Even the most inept captain can run it efficiently. This is star command after all... we certainly do have an influx of those.
So I suggest we start with selecting the best in each discussable class to create our task force ships in that manner. We'll do it simply. State what ship you like to be the cruiser and if you get 5 captains to agree or state the same ship then that ship will hold that place. Once we have the Cruiser, Escort, and Exploration ship determined we can determine it's armament and crew training. Atleast this in theory will keep use from bickering. And disprove the urban legend that not even Q can get 4 captains to agree on the color of a tactical officers shirt.
Ladies and gentlemen.... I will say this now. I am not what you will call orthodox. I do not believe in the prime directive and only uphold it because the alternatives are lacking. This forum will get you court-marshaled and there is no doubt about it. We will check the prime directive, our position, and our oaths at the door and sanction this off as section 31. As far as Star Command is concerned this meeting isn't happening. And if it was then the rest of you renegades will be sharing a cell with me in Facility 4028. If you decide to leave I will not hold it against you. You may be the smartest person amongst us.
This is a movement to solidify Federation dominance. Goodwill comes to the victor of wars not the losers. If you understand that much then let's begin back from where it started.
The Lead Flagship of the Task force. What will be our cruiser? IT has to contend with The Borg, The Klingon's, and the Romulon's. Keep that in mind...
Universal, ease of use, and devastating. Those are the criteria we must fill to make a single strike force. I am sorely lacking when it comes to these things. Even in my ship I only have command in tactical situations beyond that the Sigma team runs the ship. So until we discuss escorts I will be in your care.
