TSP – Episode 4 (1hr 33m)

This is the episode that doesn’t end, yes it goes on and on my friend…

We are joined today by Piotr. He’s a disabled simmer that proves in this podcast it doesn’t matter your ability you can sim as good–if not better–than anyone and also write characters that are jerks.

Topics discussed include:

  • A character that has seen a lot over 10 years
  • Piotr’s fiction on Amazon *
  • Why Garak is the best character in Trek
  • Piotr asks us about our sims
  • What if Klinger (from MASH) was a character on a Star Trek sim


Sites mentioned: USS LancelotTango Fleet, 6th Fleet, Least I Could Do (NSFW webcomic), Star Trek: Renegades (the crowdfunding campaign)

* Piotr’s ebook on Amazon: Compromised

TSP – Episode 3 (1hr 24m)

Today we have our first guest!  Cars used to be a simmer and CO but left us to have a real life back in 2008.  So, we dragged her back to let us know if there truly is life after simming and when to know when it’s time to let go.

Warning:  There is a shit tonne of swearing in this episode.  It was like we all (mostly Sarah) got drunk beforehand and were told whoever used the most cursewords during this episode would win a prize.  Sadly there was no prize 🙁

Note: the sounds quality isn’t that great, you can hear a lot of breathing due to how close the mic had to be to Cars’s mouth in order to hear her.

Topics discussed include:

  • Interview with Cars, a former simmer and CO *
  • Why would you leave simming?
  • Original fiction (includes werewolves) **
  • Fleet politics
  • Fanta ***


This week’s question:  Do you like Fanta and if so, what is your favourite flavour?

Sites mentioned: Obsidian Fleet

* Cars’s former sim SS Walkabout
** Cars’s ebook: Animal City Police: The Cat Who Fell on Her Head
*** Every flavour of Fanta ever

TSP – Episode 2 (1hr 11min)

Warning: contains no intro or outro music.

Why?  My mac died this week *cries*, but thankfully it was after the podcast had been recorded.  Unfortunately it still needed editing.  There were too many umms and mhmms, so I edited out a lot.  Not all of them though, so play along at home and take a sip whenever you hear one 😛

Topics discussed include:

  • Feedback from others on what attracts them to a sim
  • Out of Character community (including IMs and IRC)
  • Being in different time zones *
  • The curse of the Executive Officer
  • Update on Sarah’s nova sim **
  • The joy of Lemon, Lime and Bitters (drink)


This week’s question:  How do you prefer to get to know your fellow players (IM, IRC, Forum, Email, etc)?

Sites mentioned: Federation Sim Fleet, Bravo Fleet

* Nifty timezone website
** Sarah’s nova sim site
