Captain Anita Drynke, Commanding Officer UBS Abandon

Well, I've settled in & I sincerely hope I've found the last of the confetti. Q really put the hard sell on Capt. DuBois. Office smelled like tacos for a month!

The EMH is still hovering at me every time I lift something heavier than the aforementioned confetti. He's absolutely convinced I'll undo his expert surgical repair on my shoulder, which is why I was sporting that terribly fashionable sling at Windycon, for those of you who saw me.

Sadly, we are not going to be able to host an in person party at Capricon 42 either. The current state of the Covid-19 pandemic makes a crowded, in person party unsafe & we try very hard to throw a safe party. We're in the process of looking at what virtual options we can provide. It's frustrating to stay away, but the needs of the many...

Until we can raise a glass together again, Sláinte!

The Q have thrown a wonderful curve ball at me in the past few months. A full taco and nacho bar, mariachis following me around… and well, with that kind of fanfare and dedication – they made an offer I couldn’t refuse.

This will be my last journal entry as the Captain of the U.B.S. Abandon, but it will not be the last you will see of me. I will be travelling the galaxy as an ambassador and doing exhausting inebrium research to report back. It is hard work, but honest. Someone has to bring new inebrium to Barfleet.

Cmdr Anita Drynke will be taking the helm of the Abandon and her crew and I could not be happier that someone with the drive and experience will be taking the Abandon on her new chapter. I look forward to rendezvousing with the Abandon on the regular to keep tabs on her crew.

Now, I must find myself a Mr. Homn and speak to a Betazoid tailor about getting my kaftan collection in order.

Greetings crew members!
As Halloween approaches I hope everyone has embraced the season of pumpkin carving, candy stashing and getting your inner ghoul on. It's been a long strange time as we all enjoyed the break from staying home to stay safe, (Yay Science and Vaccines!) The turn-out for our Picnic in August was fantastic and I anticipate at least one more outdoor event before the Chicago winter slams into us. Who knows, maybe the weather during WindyCon will be kind to us. It would be great to gather with our lunches, or even an outdoor grill, to share our adventures, troubles, awful jokes and terrible puns. Plus I saw Dune and would love a good in person conversation!

Be safe, be smart and watch out for wild tribbles.

Greetings fellow crewmates!

Happy New Year! Hopefully all of you are well and safe during this unprecedented time.
For amusement purposes, we've been hosting almost weekly virtual events via Zoom, Twitch, but mainly on Barfleet Discord. We have had Jackbox Games, watch parties, breadmaking, and hoping to incorporate more events such as crafting, cooking, and more!
If you haven't joined any of our past events, we'd love to see you! We primarily run them in the 10 Forward lounge on Barfleet Discord, but definitely keep an eye out for those emails, our Facebook page and Discord for event announcements. Please join us in the future! We also welcome ideas for events! Just let us know!
Speaking of Virtual events, Capricon is coming up in less than 2 weeks! If you haven't seen the announcements already, check your emails, our Facebook page, and the event channel on Barfleet Discord regarding Capricon. We will have our DJs spin their sets Friday night, and then we will run Jackbox gaming Saturday night with Insane Ian first followed by SnuSnu, then the following Sunday we will have Coffee with the Captain. If any of you have other ideas on activities you'd like for the Abandon to do, please reach out to your department heads, but don't take too long! We have less than 2 weeks left!
Thanks everyone and hope to see you all at Virtual Capricon in under 2 weeks!

LCDR Shiho, out...with booze...and lesson planning...and more booze...with blackjack…and...

Greetings from the Reba Kitty Cluster!
I’m still quarantined here, but have been promoted to making sure Queen Chonkybutt is satisfied. Much better than Litter Detail, that was an icky job. Currently Queen Chonkybutt demands that her green blankie be arranged ‘just so’, the cooler temperatures mean more napping. And of course, food bowl filling. Captain Chewy came through for me at the last minute, so we won’t starve! (whew)

This weekend I’m going to virtually visit the BreezyCon system, they were kind enough to build out a website for everyone!
The website is http://breezycon.isfic.org/
And I found that Barfleet warranted their OWN TAB! How special! You can see the events we are sharing with the humanoids of BreezyCon. http://breezycon.isfic.org/Home/Barfleet
And on their Discord, which you can join from their front page, we have our own channel! They must like us.

See you for MASH trivia, or Jackbox Saturday night, or if you want to hang out with me and make stuff, I’ll be doing that Saturday at 4pm central. Zooooooom!

Be safe! Don’t forget to wear your space helmet (aka Mask)
