Smile! Open Stardrive For All the USS Pantries. The Imaginarium.

News, Pews, Updates, Downdates....

Mr. Porter rallies the troops.  
Occasionally, when the chips are down and enthusiasm is low, when moral is lacking and a gray pall smothers the air, a good Space Center director steps in to rally the troops and remind them to focus on what's important (selling camp slots:)


Mr. Porter:  Connor, that's what I'm talking about.  That smile will sell 100 camp slots guaranteed.  It's your greatest asset IF you use it.  Now you get to that lobby and dazzle that crew.
Connor: But it's early Saturday morning and this smile is entire fake. I read once that to your own self be true. How can I be true to myself and to the people around me if I don't show my true feelings? 
Lissa:  Connor, I smile all the time whether I want to or not. It's not how you feel, it's all in how you look.  
Erin: What are talking about?  Anybody got a clue?  
Brynlee:  I think I can see myself in Mr. Porter's glasses.

Open Stardrive: Open Sourced Starship Controls for the USS Pantry, Your Home Based Starship 

     This message is to all of you who operate your own home starships.  The Christa McAuliffe Space Education Center, Telos Academy, Farpoint at Renaissance Academy, Jason Hills, and Allan Stewart are joining forces to create Open Stardrive, an open sourced, complete set of bridge controls for both the professional and home based starship.
     The Open Stardrive team met in Central School's conference room last Saturday to share ideas, imagineer, discuss, differ, debate, compare, contrast, envision, division all the bells and whistles needed to create a set of controls any simulator would be proud to have running on their computers.

James Porter, Ryan Anderson, Jason Hills, Derek Bunn, and Allan Stewart study Open Stardrive's Architecture

The results of hours of discussing. It was all Greek to Me.
      I spent much of the meeting nodding my head giving the impression I understood what they were saying.  They communicated using a form of binary with strong vowels accented with mono syllabic consonants.  James understood my situation and leaned over from time to time to translate.
     "Brilliant," I said whenever there was a lull in the conversation. They smiled showing appreciation for my input.

     Open Stardrive will be available at some yet to be determined date in the future. Until then, keep an eye on the blog to see how you can be a part of this history in the making project.
