So we can stay in better contact with each other I say we start using the discord app. It's similar to Skype but since my Skype no longer works and I use discord for my gaming crew on xbox with no issues I think it would suit our needs.  Here is the link to the chat servers.

Josh watched as his team enter the transporter room. "Set phasers on the highest stun setting. We're going down to secure the Cardassian down there. Hopefully peacefully but if needed then by force." Josh then looked over at the engineer. "Lieutenant if he chooses to do this the hard way i doubt he'll open up the shield grid. So you'll need to find a way to bring it down."

The lieutenant nodded his head. "Aye sir." Josh then stepped on the transporter pad . He then looked at the transporter chief. "Energize." Moments later they arrived on the planet's surface slightly closer to the hut than before. "I want to people on each corner. You two stay near the front door." Josh said to Harriman and the engineer.

Josh's team took their positions. Josh then knocked on the door waiting for a response.

    Character Bio:

    Early life Josh was born in St. Louis Missouri. When he was a small child he was on numerous ships with his parents.  Sometimes the postings had little to no action,  but there was times when the ships come under attack.  One ship they was all one together was nearly destroyed during a warp core design flaw. Josh was then sent to live with his Aunt and Uncle back on Earth. 

    When Josh turned eighteen he enlisted in Starfleet Academy. He excelled at shuttle operations but he felt that he could best serve in security and tactical. He won a citation for bringing another idea that gave his simulated ship a tactical advantage. At graduation he and his fellow friends attended a party in which some of his friends was arrested for fighting.  Josh was arrested as well but released do to his attempt to stop the altercation. His first commanding officer decided to punish him by putting a letter of reprimand in his file.

    Josh received his promotion to lieutenant jg. about a month after his parents death at Wolf 359 on his second ship. The captain took pity on him after seeing how hard he worked on trying to prove himself to everyone as Josh felt he was being punished for a crime for attempting to stop the fight before it could escalate farther.

    Josh then received his promotion to full Lieutenant and was chief of security. When a friend of his was killed on an away mission he requested a transfer to avoid the pain.  In his mind he let his crew down because of a booby trap that couldn't be detected. He was then selected to join the crew of the USS Atlantis as their new chief of security and tactical officer in which he took with great pride. He still feels responsible for the death of his friend but that is the one thing that happens in Starfleet and on away missions and he's still learning to accept that fact and move on. 

    While enroute to a mission on Hawking colony the first officer was killed by raiders and Josh apprehended those responsible. His captain awarded him the medal of valor and he was given a promotion to Lt. Commander.

    After several years serving on the Atlantis Josh was promoted to Commander and was told of a new assignment in which he was needed to serve as first officer. His captain put in a great recommendation and he was selected. He left his old friends on the Atlantis for new and exciting things.

    Hello everyone. It has come to our attention that things have stalled and the site is in need of a big transfusion. We will be basically restarting the site. People will be repositioned with new ranks. We're getting a brand new ship and we think you will all like it.

    This has been decided with the lack of activity and being spread too thin. We're going back to basics. One ship one crew. Hopefully in time We can get more members then open it up again to include another ship or revisit the space station station. It's a bright new day for the 8th fleet. Nothing but good times ahead
