I was going to just send this to a select few in the Command Staff, but I figured that I'd stop by and say hello.

So, a quick intro for those that haven't ever heard of me. I'm Retired FCAPT Arma, also known IRL as CAPT Zachary McCauley of the 1701st Fleet. I'm a college student at Penn State, still working on Mechanical Engineering with 2 years to go. I used to lead the Browser Based Games SQN here, eventually rising to the Command Staff myself. Leading a group of people through the Internet taught me a few things.

In any case, to the reason I'm posting... I just wanted to give the people that knew me an update. Over the past couple years, I've had the unique opportunity to run and create a RL meeting non-profit that actually dresses in Starfleet uniform. I even own a TNG Movie/Late DS9 uniform myself! In my personal life, my mother has had a cerebral aneurysm, and I was the one to urge her to go to the hospital. That was easily one of the hardest things I've had to do. I've gotten the opportunity to see another NASA launch, which I actually was in uniform for part of the event. Image

Appreciate all the comments and replies I may get here, but I figured I'd stop by and say hello.

P.S Command Staff, when I get over to the UK or wherever you're at, remind me to have a drink with you all, even though we've had our troubles. What we decided on has let me do some fun, and unique things.

Good to hear from you. Neat to see the real life influences you brought to your Mr Scott. :)

Thanks, Soong and Intercity! It was very odd talking to the Deputy Administrator for Programs in NASA's Science Mission Directorate about orbital mechanics in uniform. The entire event was pretty awesome though, and I got to see MAVEN launch to Mars! I honestly think that NASA wants me to see every Mars launch they do. :P

Uniform looks good on you, sounds like you have been keeping busy! Stop by and catch up if you get the chance, been too long.

I do occasionally check the forums here. If you, and this goes for any of you, you can always contact me on Facebook, or Skype. Skype username is the same as my username here, and I think I've added most of you to Facebook. :P

Not really. Though, I saw something by Gadget, and I might be getting back into BC, if I still have everything. :)

Bleh, airline cancellations really suck. I slept in an airport last night, and got all of two hours of sleep. I'm now going through the fun process of writing them a letter.
