intrepid 1

When planning first began for Operation Delta Rising, the Starfleet Corps of Engineers quickly realized that an updated version of the famed Intrepid class would be essential for the mission’s success. Most of the advanced technology used in the Pathfinder was first tested on the U.S.S. Voyager, which was completely updated before it departed for the Delta Quadrant. When Admiral Tuvok was satisfied with the ship’s performance, work could begin to produce Pathfinders for the fleet.

The Pathfinder Long Range Science Vessel is a Tier 6 version of the Intrepid class science vessel. It features a hybrid Intelligence Bridge Officer seat and comes equipped with an Aero Shuttle Bay universal console. Additionally, it can equip the Long Range Science Vessel Retrofit’s Ablative Generator universal console.

Aero Shuttle bay

Console – Universal – Aero Shuttle Bay

The Pathfinder Long Range Science Vessel comes equipped with an Aero Shuttle Bay universal console, allowing the science vessel to deploy a useful support craft to aid the starship in combat. The Aero Shuttle provides support with offensive science abilities and is equipped with special phaser beam arrays that have a greater chance to knock the target’s subsystems offline.

This unique console may be equipped in any console slot on any Long Range Science Vessel variant.

Ablative Field Projector (Starship Trait)

Trolls vs Christians

So one of the guild leaders in Star Trek Online was recruiting people for her fleet/guild on Earth Space Dock. Her guild is a Christian guild and so she was recruiting Christians to her fleet. Well things went downhill quickly for her as other people who play the game began to complain that religion should not be brought into the game. Zone chat is very unforgiving on Earth Space Dock and debates about the Christianity from the misinformed is very frustrating and always follows the typical “What I heard about Christianity…” then the individual(s) go on a rambling much about nothing even vaguely resembling a passage or scripture. Then a lengthy debate begins with “Christians are…” and “Religion is…” followed by the “I think…” and the “We should…”. When asked by Christians, maybe two or three will speak up, to cite the scripture the usual remark is “Well that’s what I heard.” Obviously these individuals are judging by what other people say and not reading the bible. These are difficult time for us Christians that face many, unknowingly, adversaries. When these unknowing adversaries are faced with a Christian that sits down and explains the truth most will run seeking cover not knowing what to think. However there is that small percentage that looks at you with amazement and say “What?”. These are people that we to talk with. The others will come in God’s time.

So the last test blog actually failed going to the webpages. Hopefully it is working now. While I was writing this Test Blog a conversation came up in Teamspeak 3 about favorite bible verses which I added at the bottom of the article. Romans 8:28
Recently the Christian Gaming Community have acquired WebPages on twitter, face book, and Google + in an effort to…well advertise. As a Christian God has asked us to spread his word for all to hear so they may come to know Him. So I was trying to find something to write about when I found this scripture.

Romans 12 New International Version (NIV)

Love in Action
9 Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. 10 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. 11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. 12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. 13 Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.
14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. 16 Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position.[c] Do not be conceited.

Romans 8 New International Version (NIV)
28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[i] have been called according to his purpose.
