Aha! Energy Allocation is in. Thank you for running our game, Eric.

It's on!

Not that my ship will last too long against the Juggernaut. Shocked

This is my first time ever for PBEM and the first time ever for flying this ship, so it'll be interesting to see where this goes. I predict good times and some laughter lay ahead for Tony and I.

I think Rick's Death Probe will be a pretty fair match for the Juggernaut BB.

Oooops! I shouldn't have mentioned what Rick was flying! Laughing

SOP in (finally). Sorry for the hold-up.

Even though we're not flying them, I wonder what the outcome would be between the Death Probe and the Jugger. Heh.

Or the winner of the Escalation even takes on a Death Probe with his fleet? Might be fun Wink

Oh look... that ship hasa funky chicken on it's belly. I wonder if there's a yeller stripe on it's back, too??? Confused

To paraphase a somewhat crotchity southern doctor many of us can relate to... "Bring it on, you pointy eared hobgoblin!"

And before the debate starts... I do understand the difference between Romulans and Vulcans, but it gets the point across! Wink

So, Rick... you're flying an armor-clad ship which can fire some sort of plasma-like weapon, crewed with beings intent on taking over the galaxy?

Little wonder you have a high mineral intake.

Yeah, except I have pointy ears, an awkward haircut, a bad attitude, and does "not play well with others." That and I'm not made of 100% poured concrete...

Technically, concrete is a homogeneous construction material that is placed into the formwork or "placement" area.
The addition of chemical agents can give it a "pourable" consistency, but the additives required to provide this consistency without a comparable loss of ultimate strength can double the cost of the final product. This typically results in the addition of copious quantities of water by the concrete finishers to replicate the "pourable" nature of super-plasticized concrete... along with the multitude of performance issues that process produces. But that's a lecture for another day.

And if it wasn't for those concrete finishers - there would be no need for QA/QC Special Inspectors! Wink
