Lost Harbor
Atlantis RP / atlantis-mission
For an evening, Atlantis's crew gets to take a break from worrying about the potential advent of war in favor of celebrating the beginning of our ship's twenty-fifth year in space. In the holodeck, on a cloudless summer night under Earth's bright full moon, the scene is a local county fair with a somewhat bohemian flair. Around a festively-lit central square with a dance floor and live music, there are carnival rides, games offering prizes, and food and drink stalls of all sorts, from cotton candy and kettle corn to beer and cocktails. Happy 24th birthday, Atlantis!
