Some points for considering possible changes:


1.             A permanently new commanding officer character.


I don?t see the need for a new CO, myself ? I think the crew structure is 
working well as it is. (Despite some curiousities ? I don?t know if it is just 
that the site needs updating, but at the moment the Chief of Science is a 
Lieutenant and second officer of the ship, and there are Lieutenant-Commander 
in both Science and Command?  J  I know she had the position long before Cynan 
and Kieran reached those ranks, but it still seems slightly curious)


2. Different types of missions. (Please be specific.)

I like political/intrigue missions, personally, I think they play out much 
better than combat oriented ones on-line, but by and large the game?s been fun 
for me, and I?m not inclined to ask for more or less of anything.


3.               Reorganization of ?command structure??Players who have not 
posted in 

months/have not emailed in three missions asked to leave.

               People who don?t post? Where do you set the cutoff point? No 
post in a month sounds a reasonable time to send out a warning, but of course 
someone will have to keep track of this, and we don?t want it turning into a 


4.             More feedback from Andy, Chris and/or Mel.

I hope I?m not so vain that I need more feedback!!! Hehe?


5.             More focus on character development/interaction with other 

(Or less character development and more mission- and story-driven 


               I think the gap, if there is one, in the missions, is here ? the 
idea that character development phases and mission phases are somehow discrete 
and need to take turns? Shouldn?t our characters be growing (up, apart, 
together, astray?) more than is usual at those times when the extreme 
situations are at hand? I.e. during missions?



Other. (Please be specific.)
            I know that I am probably more guilty than most of only posting for 
Kieran, and letting other people post for others? I have a tendency to think of 
Kieran as ?mine? and the other characters as belonging to someone each, rather 
than thinking of him as my creation which I?m adding to our collaborative 
effort. Thankfully, in Kieran?s case, that?s sometimes helpful, as he?s quite 
an introspective character, and the internal monologue?s are his best chance of 
getting things across. Still, I shall endeavour to write for other characters 
in the future a little more, and try not to think ?Kieran wouldn?t do that!? 
when someone else writes for him ? after all, he just did! :)
