The Captain's Egg Lemon Soup- Soupa Avgolemono
This page is in progress
In the Star
Trek sim , the USS Eagle, we play a variety of characters from different
cultures and different worlds. A sim is an online role playing game. Ours
is played in a chatroom. We type in text and play characters in a story.
This is a page for the Captain's family and culture. It is written
as if he posted it. He is half Chinese and half Greek and enjoys cooking,
when he's not out saving the galaxy. If you would like information on our
Star Trek RPG just email me or check out the rest of this web page with the
links below. The recipe comes from his father's side of his family.
