I think it could just be that they are very different types of interaction... As above, PC issues have prevented me from even playing STO, and my laptop can't even handle the download, let alone run the game However, I really like the vibe here, and love the literary challenges, as they force me to stretch my writing, rather than just writing whatever I want to Badlands would certainly satisfy my love of writing, and although this isn't part of my application, I have a self-created alien race, as well as a unique piece of technological hardware, so I see potentially two awards already It's been a very hectic day for me, but I'll get my application in within 48 hour...
[Edit]
I'll do it now

Well, I'm glad you're joining the Borderlands family. As to the self-created alien race and technological hardware I'm not too sure, but I'm sure a couple of the CO's or XO's will take a liking to it. You never know unless you try.

I just stuck with having two Human characters since I'm familiar with being Human. And both are marines since I'm familiar with being a soldier myself. I could've done something outside what I know, but I figured I'd stick with something I'm familiar with. Experience with both fields have helped me out lol

I'll see how the application goes, and then bring them up and see I also stuck with a Human character for similar reasons, even though I'm no fighter pilot I posted the application entry here as I enjoyed writing it so much, but thus far, no critiques

I was thinking about bringing over the Portable Transporter Buffer, since I love that piece of tech.

I'm setting up my Badlands character as a transporter specialist engineer though, if I'm accepted, so hopefully I'll be able to develop it in game

Heh, this is much the same reason I've gone for Joined Trill again. I've done a lot of research on the Trill background, so know them well. And playing a new host for an older symbiont I've been playing for a few years now means I already know the character well.

The piece I had in mind, is something I came up with a few years back: A minaturized Type I phaser, wrapped in evasion polymers, to be kept in an officer's bootheel, which uses an electrodynamic fluid as the powercell instead of sarium krellide. The idea is that the fluid is inert until extrememly violently agitated, where upon it would build enough of a charge for a few shots, but would otherwise be undetectable to scanners

Not a bad idea, although I'd not like to be wearing those shoes whiel having to run somewhere. You might accidently blow your foot off

I'll be completely honest about my peice of tech - I stole it from the game Elite Force.

The phaser has to be VERY violently agitated (like when a tattoo artist will shake a bottle of ink to blend it properly prior to pouring) for 10 seconds to build the charge, even the most strenuous workout wouldn't affect the fluid powercell I figured anyone running from their enemy prior to capture might be scanned upon capture, so it needs much more kinetic input to power up (the idea is that it has absolutely zero stored power until agitated, and even then, only develops enough of a charge for maybe a few shots on level one, or a single shot at level 4, before needing re-charging) as would have to read as inert plastic unless it was actually in use

Hee hee, not sure if borrowed ideas will qualify for the new tech award I saw

Not having any tattoos, I'm not sure how violently an artist shakes their bottle before starting, but from what you have said, I now have this image in my head of a Starfleet officer running from someone shooting at him, diving into cover, then removing his boot and furiously shaking it before pointing it out of cover and opening up at the enemy. Brilliant

I don't mind if I don't get the new tech award for the PTB. I have plenty of other ideas. My friends and I have often sat around chatting about Star Trek and how we would abuse... erm, utilise, the advanced technology.

Awesome mental image, but the officer would take the phaser out of their hollow boot heel first I guess if you were to shake something in your hand, moving your hand about an inch up and down as hard and fast as you can, that's the kind of agitation the powercell would require to build a useable charge, anything below that ie running, it would remain inert The idea was that this would literally be a last resort tool to maybe blow open a cell door, and stun the guard, before then taking their weapon for extended use (Or indeed having to keep ducking from cover and building the charge up again) But essentially, the idea is that if scanned, it would simply register as an inert piece of plastic, so indistinguishable from the rest of the material of the boot heel

As the awards go I know a few of the DS's still use them. But just remember that there is a chain of command we use in game and OOC. As to creating the tech that also all depends on the CO of the station. Just ask him/her if it's okay and they'll give you the go or no-go.

Also another piece of information: You guys can have multiple characters on multiple DS's.
