Long title, but when you are thinking or playing the game, doing various things, do you have certain thoughts or images pop into your mind?
A bit confusing of a question, but here's an example I have:
When I'm sitting at an Academy, grinding up DOFFs, I tend to get a rather gruesome picture in my mind about 5 poor, unfortunate common duty officers being ground up in a giant meat grinder a la Pink Floyd's, 'Another Brick in the Wall'.
Rather nasty I admit, but I can't help but think about that a lot of the time I am doing that.
Anybody else have interesting/weird thoughts and such about anything in the game?
I normally sit in my ready room and think what or who should I feed to my carnivorous fish... then I summon a red shirt ensign. The conversation usually follows these lines.
"Ensign I need you to clean the fish tank, I know it is a thankless job, but I trust you will be gentle and not injure my fish."
"Yes Sir, Captain Rox, I will begin immediately!", they always respond with a big stupid smile. The kiss ups are always good for a few laughs. Then as I leave the room, I listen at the door for the faint sounds of screaming.
I look at it as a test of their metal. If they survive, it will make them better officer material. What doesn't kill you, will make you stronger... so what if you have one or two artificial limbs. If they don't survive, then I have a standard accident report. I just fill out the name and date and Starfleet seems to expect those on a regular basis.
