Star Trek's one year anniversary will come to a close real soon
Along with an open game event like a celestial full moon

Cryptic has been gracious by giving us free stuff
And a new earth space dock that's looking pretty tough

Annoying epic party poppers and a new episode to boot
And Q's benevolent fountain quest to gain some nice free loot

But someone found out "HEY! I don't have to take these things!"
I can splash around all day until good fortune brings

Brings me a new Targ pup or maybe a purple shield
Or perhaps a new weapon for my gallant crew to wield

Or better yet if I really try I'll get something really swell
To link and brag in game chat and then go try to sell

But there are those who cheered for their epic beam array
To open up their inventory and find a hypospray

Sure there are legit ones who gave it just one try
Instead of being greedy and making others cry

Complain for what they did not get or better yet deserve
In the fountain-tribble pile with the random drop rate curve

I've heard "This isn't fair" or "Look what I just got!"
After spending all this time dipping in the pot

Cause while you've been fortunate or getting something lame
I've been out there questing and playing this on-line game

Believe it or not there are missions with BOE's to claim
Instead of fishing for epics, getting nothing, and complain

So I wave good-bye to another game event
I have seen so many that have came and went

I've been there for ********, City Of Heroes and Champions online
I've participated somewhat but I have not wasted my time

Because there are those who ruin it for true gamers like myself
Who think "YAY! I got the item! I get a trophy for my shelf!"

But in all reality it's just another online game
It's not a competition or a glorious road to fame

It's here for us to come to and have a little fun
Even if you missed your pet or your purple gun

And so I wrap up my little ditty and bring it to an end
I hope my satire and sarcasm simply did not offend

I will say that I'm sorry for grief that did occur
And end with "Happy B-day STO!" Live long....and prosper!

Thanks, yours as well. Very nice Klingonese, you must have the dictionary. AH, Yellowbeard! Some are not old enough to remember that.
Poor Graham, we miss ye.

Ty, though was just a hack job using the Twitter in Klingon function.

I enjoyed that Poem. The STO anniversary event was nice. I'm going to miss it. I was proudly not a pond dipper.

I pond dip until I get something spawned on my toon's level. Nothing more.

Conveniently, three of them are Vice Admirals.

Nice poem. I'm better at writing stories myself, couldn't write a good poem if my life depended on it. I tip my hat to your talent.
