"John Weikle, founder of Skybus, has announced he is working on a plan to revive the bankrupt airline. Weikle has stated he has put together a team to examine the possible reorganization and restart of the airline. Weikle stated he planned to use $10 million the airline had left in its treasury at the time of its demise to attract new investors. Little more is known at this time, but Skybus owed its creditors in excess of its $10 million cash on hand."

In August 2008, Weikle acknowledged interest in Springfield, Ohio as a site for a startup airline that would draw passengers from nearby Dayton and Columbus. [28]"

These guys were the best and worst thing to happen to Barfleet since the invention of the YT. $50 flights to Columbus (home of many Fleet events, for you non-members) from Chicopee, MA (which is like 20 minutes from my house). Yes, there were fewer amenities, and yes, the terminals were ghetto. But, seriously. $50 for a round-trip flight. It was totally worth it, and I never got to take advantage of it because gas shot up to $5/gallon and they declared Chapter 11 less than a year after opening their doors.

Don't tease me, SkyBus. Don't do it.

THE BARFLEET PARTY(S) SCHEDULED FOR PI-CON HAVE BEEN CANCELLED FOR THIS YEAR

In a nutshell, if we try to have it in a suite, we're not allowed to have a DJ and we'll be shut down promptly at 10pm.

If we try to have it in a convention room, we're not allowed to serve adult beverages.

We are working on an alternate plan for a private (read: ship and friends only) party for Saturday, but things are up in the air for that. I will edit this post if things change.

If you have booked a room at PiCon this weekend, and are willing to "buffer" around our suite, PLEASE LET ME KNOW. Otherwise, the hotel is just going to put anyone there, and we'll end up getting noise complaints and shut down... again.

Thank you.
The Management

P.S. If you are coming, and need floor space to crash on, also let me know. The suite will be available-ish. There's one bed and one couch, but the bed is going to belong to SMEE, and I think Ron has already called the couch. I can request a cot, and I have an air mattress. I just need a head's up.

OK, to alleviate confusion:

If you're interested in Barfleet, but are unsure about the details, let me clarify )

If you have further questions, I'm easy to get a hold of. If you are a paid member, I expect to see you at xXxMas on the 16th (so you can get your money's worth). If you are a non-paid member, dues are due on January 1st. If you are a curious non-member, BYOB and come have a good time with us.

OK, disregard if you have no interest in Barfleet.

The U.B.S. Shameless website has been up and running, and is nearing pseudo-completion. I have profiles up for the following people: (please do check them out and let me know if you'd like anything modified or if you'd like it removed)
Kelly, Ned (Command)
Dave H., Tiffany, Damian (Medical)
Matt (Security)
Jay H. (Engineering)
John V., Michael (Communications)
Greg (Intel)

I have no one for Navigation or Science. I also have several folks that need to be put somewhere (Dave Sirotnak, the Rathbuns, and Lurch, as well as anyone I may have missed at NEE). So, look it over, think it over, and get back to me. If you want onboard, I just need a pic to post and the time to make you a name.

Also, I need someone to draw/digitize me a pic for our logo. I was trying to make one of two crossed martini glasses, where the olives look like nipples (and the open part of the glass looks like boobs). Anyone with talent out there? Big prizes for ya if you get it done!

Barfleet's next un-official function will be our away mission to Barbase Foxwoods on Friday. The away vessel "Workitsister" can accomodate 2 more passengers, if anyone is looking to carpool. I will be leaving the Northern sector at approximately 17:00 hours.

I am a bumbling a$$hole when it comes to web design.

That being said, I am in need of web pages for the UBS Shameless and for The Midnight Ride. I have had offers, and Seth has done some work on the Boston page, but I have nothing for the Shameless page and that needs fixin'. Can anyone help? Please?

I'd be willing to waive ship's dues for anyone willing (and able) to make a page in the next couple of months.

OK, so my Mom finally asked about my weekend in Ohio. We chatted for a little bit, and then I said (this is our ACTUAL CONVERSATION, mind you),

K: "OK, within the Sci-Fi community, there are celebrities. Like, the guy who invented Star Trek--"

Mom: "Gene Roddenberry."

K: " ::blink:: Uh, yeah. Exactly. But he's dead. His son, Gene Junior, kind of picked up the torch and--"

Mom: "Didn't he do other stuff after that? Like 'Earth Final Conflict'? I could swear I've seen his name in the credits for other things..."


:: blink ::

What the fuck just happened? Is the end of the world nigh? Some of you have met my Mom. Does this seem like her? Should I start fearing doppelganger attack, or secret government conspiracy???

OK, so I have to second Matt's comment. It was all we could manage to say during the plane ride home.

Best. Weekend. Evar.

I hung out with some of my favorite people on earth, made a pile of new friends, threw a history-making party, and saw a couple of friends that I hadn't seen in 3-5 YEARS. It was awesome. Details upon request, or if I have enough ambition after Gillian goes to bed.

And for those of you who do not know, when Matt (or I) refers to "The Admiral" or "Rod", we are in fact speaking of Eugene Roddenberry, Jr. He's the Admiral of Barfleet, and a hella cool guy.
