Knittin' Crap: SFAC May Shore Leave

May is a shore leave month in the Starfleet Fiber Arts Corps, but we still had a shuttle mission, plus afghan blocks and a brig release.

Shuttle: Something about voting on ownership of a disputed ice planet claimed by both the Romulans and the Klingons
Your mission: • Option A: Craft something in Blood wine red to show your support for the Klingon claim to Poosh.
• Option B: Craft something in Romulan ale blue to show your support for the Romulan claim to Poosh.
Purely out of curiosity to see for what use they need a frozen moon (if betting weren’t against Starfleet regulations, my credits would be on ice hockey training so they can sweep the next Interstellar Games), I vote for the Romulans. My vote takes the highly appropriate form of an Earth peacock, as they are a symbol of pride, and the Romulans are a proud race, indeed.
Afghan Challenge Planet of the Month: Qo’noS, the Klingon homeworld.These squares either represent Kang’s Summit or the pointy end of a bat’leth, both of which a tourist on Qo’noS may encounter.

The Brig - the place where unfinished projects languish in shameThis prisoner promised to deliver a personal force field 2 whole tours ago and failed miserably, causing some damage to engineering. It has since cleaned up the damage and adopted Starfleet safety protocols. Requesting release back to regular duty.
Excuse me, some crew members have no manners….
