Lieutenant Commander Shiho, Chief Medical Officer, U.B.S. Abandon

This year's mission to Capricon 2020, The Redshirt Survival Afterparty, was a huge success. All Command staff unanimously thought it would be appropriate to go back to the basics and revisit the very reason why we are Barfleet. Oddly enough, my medical staff all came in wearing the appropriate colored Starfleet uniforms. I swear none of us preplanned it! It just happened! I believe a holoimage was taken by LCDR JOG, and no doubt our Chief Recreation Officer will add that holoimage to our next deployment at Windycon.

Medical came up with 4 incredibly tasty premix drinks for this mission: Command, Engineering, Medical/Science, and Security (N/A). All four premixes were happily consumed by our wonderful guests and served by our amazing medical staff. It was nice to hear from several patrons and crew how much they enjoyed our drinks.

The Party Gods saw fit to bestow upon us the Best Party Award. We are incredibly proud of this honor, and look forward to our next deployment at Windycon.

We were honored to be in the presence of one of the Guest of Honors, Indycent's Captain Lucy. We were also thrilled to see so much of the Indycent crew, and truly appreciate their enthusiasm and willingness to fill in holes for us. We were also more than fortunate to be in the presence of various crew from the Delirium and Barbase Columbus. We look forward to seeing all of you again at our next departure at Windycon!

All in all, it was an excellent mission, one I am incredibly proud of and hope to repeat in the future. Again, a special shout out to my medical staff, the command staff, the crew of the Abandon, and all other crew members from visiting ships and barbase.

LCDR Shiho, out...with bourbon on hand.

Commander Ceiling Hawke, Executive Officer U.B.S. Abandon

I have set up quite the nice little arrangement as I return from multiple extra-regional diplomatic missions. Being the Chief Ginny Whisperer means her and I can come to an understanding: I provide her with slightly more access to the Abandon's key systems and let her make some I'm-sure-they're-very-minor-and-unimportant changes to the warp core and ordnance arrays, and in return she provides me with a steady supply of Bourbon.

Meanwhile, I've allowed Captain Bryn DuBois to set up a few more firewalls to keep Ginny from messing with the Life Support systems (again) and to stop randomly shocking the ODTs when they get too sober, and in return she provides me with a steady supply of Scotch.

This'll do nicely. As long as I have enough of the good stuff set aside to keep the rest of Command from asking too many questions, I can keep my slack field going for as long as possible.

... at least until we dock in mid-February for the upcoming Capricon conference. I have a sneaking suspicion that'll be the last rest I get for quite a while. Not to mention I keep seeing Yo! Lotta K'leavage in that sector with increasing frequency...

Feck. Where's the Glenfiddich?

Captain Bryn DuBois, Commanding Officer U.B.S. Abandon

Another successful mission to WindyCon - we took home the award for “Best Non-Alcoholic Drink” for our tribute to some of our favorite space oddities! We are gearing up for a few more fun events to keep the slack field running through the end of the year on the Abandon.

Our Second Breakfast Club will be kicking off… second breakfast… or elevensies… on December 7th in a newly unexplored sector of Palatine. The crew has informed me that they will mutiny if I do not provide enough coffee for them at this event.

On Friday the 13th, we are taking our chances with the Germans at Chicago’s very own Chriskindlemart. I, for one, and very much looking forward to quaffing large amounts of gluhwine and eating my weight in chocolates.

The Tropics of Capricon are nearing closer and closer. Captain Lucy Libidinous Long of the U.B.S. Indycent will be joining us as the Fan Guest of Honor and will likely be depleting our stores of Whaler’s that we have carefully stockpiled over the years. We have time to search out more supplies in advance of her visit and ready ourselves for an influx of visitors from our sister ship.

The Command staff is still mulling over some ideas for our visit to the Wheeling Sector and how best to celebrate the Tropics of Capricon.

Ginny, end log.

Captain Bryn DuBois, Commanding Officer U.B.S. Abandon

As the newly minted captain, I am still getting my sea legs – but with the help of an excellent command staff and a stellar crew – I am getting settled in nicely. One of the things that I need to get the hang of is sweet talking our dear Ginny into doing what needs to be done around the ship. In speaking with her previous captains, there is an art to it… and I just need to master it.

We have our second… or first temporal incursion in a few days’ time, and it will give the crew some much needed shore leave before we embark on the journey to the Lombard sector. WindyCon is one of our staple missions, and we are glad to be back in November. This time, I have been told, there will be a lot more glitter involved.

Now, where is my raktajino?

Captain Ron P. Añejo, Commanding Officer U.B.S. Abandon

It's been a good year for the Abandon. The mission to Capricon was its usual success, we rocked DucKon again, winning best party.

Then all of Barfleet descended ("rendezvous" was the word the Commodore used) on the Chicago Cluster for the "mission to Chicon 7". There, we confirmed the fleet's reputation as the most slack-inducing ships in the galaxy. The locals were so grateful they named ours the best party of the gathering.

But after the mission I wasn't feeling quite myself. Seems I became a zombie, more literally than figuratively. But we set down for shore leave at WindyCon where we helped them cure their own zombie outbreak and found a cure for me in the process. Yet again, they seemed to think we threw the best party. All in a day's slack.

So as we are completing our first five year mission, we are looking ahead to more fun and frivolity in the coming year — Ginny, end log. And pour me a gorram drink.
