About"Space... the Final Frontier. These are the voyages of the Starship Enterprise. Her continuing mission: to explore strange, new worlds; to seek out new life, and new civilizations; to boldly go where no human has gone before." - Captain Jonathan Archer, Enterprise NX-01 (2151 CE)
*The Great Seal of Starfleet Command. Our organization has been chartered since the founding of the Federation in 2161 CE, and is headquartered in the city of San Francisco on the planet Earth.
Welcome aboard the United Space Ship Aurora, registry code NCC (for Naval Construction Contract) 3150, an Expedition-class uprated galactic survey cruiser (F-GSC ) stationed with Starfleet's Third Fleet, operating under the auspices of the United Federation of Planets. As her commanding officer, it is my honor to extend greetings on behalf of this proud ship, and her fine crew of 400 officers and enlisted staff.
We are currently stationed in the Gomeisa sector, an unexplored region of space on the very edge of Federation territory. We're on a three-year scientific and survey mission, making in-depth star charts, conducting research and scouting new worlds, looking for new civilizations or ascertaining new planets' usefulness to the Federation.
Please feel free to use any of the amenities available on our vessel. If you have any questions, I hold open office hours daily from 8:00AM to 10:00AM and from 9:00PM to 11:00PM, here in the Captain's Ready Room adjoining the Main Bridge.

Welcome to my profile! My name is Shaolan Lu, and I'm currently an alumnus of the University of California, Berkeley who hopes to become a scientist or possibly even a college professor.
I graduated on May 21st, 2009 with a Bachelor's of Arts in Molecular & Cell Biology and a minor in Music, and after taking a year off to figure out what step to take next while working part-time at a local grocery store, I have currently enrolled at Winthrop University in Rock Hill, SC where I will spend the next two years pursuing a Master's Degree in Biology.
My hobbies include anime (especially Gundam Wing and Gundam Seed), reading, Star Trek, roleplaying (when I can find the time), chatting with friends, collecting Star Trek, anime, and Transformers memorabilia, and music. If you'd like to find out more, feel free to PM me anytime.
However, my primary hobby during my Berkeley days was "GunPla" - constructing, detailing, painting, photographing, and of course, playing with Gundam Plastic Model Kits - snap-together model representations of famous machines from the legendary Kidou Senshi Gundam anime metaseries.
I have a special Photobucket album dedicated to housing and displaying photographs of some of the many kits I've built and/or painted up over the past year and a half. I update this album periodically. If you want to see what a "Gundam" is, or what these kits look like, check it out - the URL is here:
Please feel free to comment or PM me if you'd like to talk. I'm a busy college student, but I'll get back to you if at all possible. I appreciate meeting new people, as many of my dearest friends are fellow Gaians and Gaia is the only way I can keep in touch with them.
Live long, and prosper.

"Those of you who seek to sow the seeds of chaos and tyranny throughout this universe, hear our cry and know your fate. For we are the men and women of the Federation Starfleet. No matter what comes our way, we will survive, & we will carry on. We will fight 'round perdition's flames and to the end of time itself, for there is no sacrifice too great to be made for the sake of liberty and justice."

Captain's LogFrom the desk of Captain Shaolan Lu (OF-5), United Federation of Planets
A lot's been going on in my life recently, and I guess I just feel more comfortable if I've got stuff to write about and a place to put it. Unlike my Livejournal, this space isn't meant to have any rules.
Space: the Final Frontier. These are the voyages of the Starship Enterprise. Her continuing mission: to explore strange, new worlds. To seek out new life and new civilizations. To boldly go where no human has gone before.
Tai Naito is my imouto-chan!
