|Voyager Volunteers in character locked safely in the brig. Bracken Funk, ?, ?, and Taylor Herring. Do you|
remember that glow in the dark carpet I had installed in the brig? What was I thinking????
I've cut and pasted their original postings to a Googledoc for everyone to see. This document will be printed and kept in a binder in the new Voyager's control room for reference. Voyager volunteers and staff will use these characters in second storylines to enrich the Voyager experience. You old timers from the Space Center's Voyager Era who wrote these gems will be happy to know your work will be used today.
This is the link to the character database. Enjoy reading and please remember that the writing is that of young teens whose computers didn't have the fancy spell checking abilities of modern computers. You may recognize several of the authors like James Porter, Metta Smith, Admiral Bill Schuler, and many more.
Newly Discovered Pictures from the Space Center's Voyager Era
Jennifer worked with me over thirteen years in a variety of capacities. She developed multimedia presentations and packages to deliver a highly interactive and engaging learning experience. She developed support graphics, movies, and animation for simulator missions and classroom learning experiences. Jennifer was great at creating advertisements and flyers. She developed complete lesson plans and curriculum for distribution throughout Alpine School District in conjunction with the mission learning objectives for the Center. Jennifer wrote and delivered summer camp curriculum including star shows, physics lessons, simple machines experiments, team building skills, and many other educational and recreational activities. And finally, as if all of that wasn't enough, Jennifer supervised summer camp students during all camp activities.
And finally, we end today's installment with a photograph of the bestus of friends taken at Pleasant Grove Pool during one of our 48 hour overnight camps. The 48 hour overnight camps were challenging. The camps were always full with between 42 and 62 campers depending on the year. The volunteers and staff bonded during these long camps and became good friends.

Meet More of Farpoint's Young Astronauts at Renaissance Academy
I'd like to introduce you to two more of my 26 Young Astronaut and Voyager Club squadrons. The 4th Grade Cobra Squadron launched on the first segment of their seven-month mission last Monday. They were lucky to have sixth grade Andrew as their temporary captain. Andrew was substituting from the 6th Grade Tiger Squadron. The 4th Cobra's numbers were down due to Thanksgiving absences. The Voyager eased out of space dock with barely a scratch. A few calculations later and the starship was on course to the Klingon / New Earth border in search of a diplomatic shuttle with a certain briefcase with certain papers I'm not at liberty to discuss in this forum.
Below is the 5th Grade Scorpion Squadron under the brilliant command of Captain Foxton and First Officer McKay. They too launched on their seven-month mission.
The 5th Scorpions have a real attitude when it comes to dealing with a certain stubborn, evil, dictatorial Chancellor who happens to lead a political organization called the National Front. Why just mentioning his name brought this reaction from the crew.
