    For those PC fleet numbers there is a few things to consider. Many players want to create a fleet so that number rises over time. The larger numbers partly come from bigger fleets creating multiple fleets to have more donation options and each fleet only holds 500 roster spots. So bigger fleets need more sister fleets to fit players/characters in their fleets. Also one thing a lot of serious players do is create a fleet or fleets with temporary members that leave after creation. Allowing a player to have a solo fleet for storage AKA a “solo banking fleet” which allows a player to have centralized storage space that they can transfer items/EC using the account bank or mail to and from all their alts. Which is free compared to the price of expanding the account bank storage spaces at 1k zen per row of space.

    Great show as always. This one will probably be a little long, I apologize in advance.

    First up, I want to start by saying there have been two trailers recently that have left me in awe. The first was the new Rogue One trailer. It was amazing. It is possible to like both Star Trek and Star Wars, there’s nothing wrong with that notion. You can even like Stargate as well, which I do. Trek and Wars are completely different. Wars is more fantasy set in space than anything. I once wrote an article in high school about how Star Wars is essentially a heroic epic about Anakin Skywalker, covering his origin, rise to power, downfall and eventual redemption at the end of Jedi. Trek is more about the exploration aspect, both of space and ourselves/society. That doesn’t mean one is better or worse than the other, it’s all a matter of personal preference.
    The second trailer that left me in awe was American Gods. I devoured that book, and was really excited when I heard Bryan Fuller was going to be the one to bring it to screen. My friends know I’m a Whedonite, I’ve been a Browncoat since September 20th 2002, to the point my main ship in STO is named Serenity, my Galaxy is the Hoban Washburne, and I have lots of other Firefly/Whedon themed ships. That being said, I actually prefer Bryan Fuller. Pushing Daises is another one of my all time favorite shows, and I also loved Wonderfalls and Dead Like Me. So naturally I was thrilled, like most people, when it was announced he’d be in charge of Discovery. As far as the recent news goes, I was a bit concerned at first, but I’m choosing to look at it as good thing especially because it’s important that American Gods gets the love it deserves. Only if Fuller completely walks away from Discovery altogether is the cause to be concerned.
    One final thing. Awhile back you were instrumental in getting Cecily Adams added to the memorial plaque. Now there’s another name that needs a shout out. William Schallert who played K7 administrator Nilz Baris in Trouble With Tribbles as well as Varani in the DS9 episode Sanctuary passed in May and has yet to be included on the plaque. Thanks again for everything and sorry for being so long winded.
