# 1 Let's Ride

Howdy Klinks! Been back for awhile and checking out the new content. I like what I see but I'm a bit annoyed at everything we get is cross-factional. And I'm not sure the Klingons would be so willing to help the Romulans whom they have had a long standing fued with but hey who knows lots of time has went by so maybe some of those old wounds have healed. Anywhoo I read above about a possible KAW3 this year, I was one of those who volunteered last year for the unofficial KAW2, and thought maybe we ought to do something to inspire interest in the KDF more than once a year.

I'm an old biker guy and we make several runs to various places every year for reasons such as:

-Charity
-Traditional
- Or just because we can to have fun

Anyway I thought it would be cool to do something of this sort on the KDF side. Valentines Day is coming up and I thought maybe we could organize a run to Defera for a weekend of KDF awareness and have some fun. We could camp out at the ruins and hold some events such as starship races, PvE & PvP matches, and maybe an Orion girl wet T-Shirt contest. If it goes well then we can organize others, maybe do a Summer run to Bajor and a Fall run to New Romulus.

Let me know what you think.

I think its a good idea too jack but i'll wait on more input from the community before I start organizing. I will put this out there though. I'd like to be able to provide a badge/patch of some sort for the KDF, something that says Defera Run 2013. So I'm asking anyone out there with artistic ability to come up with something for us. Make it something you can drop in photobucket so folks can get it. I doubt Cryptic would make one for us but it would be cool if they made a patch and a black leather jacket we could put it on. If this goes over really well then a lot of folks will be logging in for the event and spending money in the store so it would serve Cryptic to throw us a bone.

so..hmmm...PvP Boot Camp was going before Cryptic signed off on it, maybe the KDF community SHOULD take that page from the PvP'ers and form a KDF week committee (like a ConCom) to organize, promote, and arrange events, and lobby Cryptic for support and a firm date?

(just floating an idea here...)
"when you're out of Birds of Prey, you're out of ships."

Look into Vanilla PvP if you're tired of the endless pursuit of grind, utterly unbalanced selections of geardo-inspired traits, and generally unbalanced and careless 'development' made mostly to turn this game into a second job.

I think some folks misunderstood what I was planning, The Defera Run isnt for KAW3. This is something I thought we could do in addition to KAW. KAW is only once a year so I thought we could do some more stuff to further enhance interest in the KDF faction. The Runs would be short, only 2-3 day events and would be annual events that happen at different times throughout the year. For instance the Defera Run would always be around Valentines Day and would be an annual event that happens every year. I also have planned a run to Bajor in the Summer and New Romulus in the Fall. The Runs would be sort of what we do in my motorcycle club.

My suggestion would be, Once whoever is organising events for Klingon awareness week sets a firm date we can then plan dates for the first Defera run for either the start or the finish of that week. Personally I like the end of the week. To me it'd be fun to start out with some mass killings in Kerrat, Then maybe some raids on some cargo freighters in PI-Canis (to stock up on snacks and adult beverages). Then Maybe swing over Gamma Orionis to to flex our muscles against the Borg Queen. By the end of the week be at Deferra for the Rally.

there should be more more ship fluidity in the whole omega leonis sector block, not for a week but forever.
