Welcome to the USS Ulysses!

In an era of unprecedented tension, the year 2293 finally brings peace and stability to the entire alpha quadrant. Following the destruction of the Klingon moon Praxis, peace talks began with the aim of bringing an end fifty years of hostilities between the Klingon Empire and Starfleet, and the proposal to dismantle all starbases in and around the Neutral Zone. The peace talks at Camp Khitomer are threatened when the Klingon Chancellor is assassinated and the blame falls on the crew of the USS Enterprise but, thanks to the timely intervention of the starships Enterprise and Excelsior, the peace talks result in the signing of the Khitomer Peace Accords and a new era of peace and friendship.

With attention freely turning elsewhere for the first time in decades, Starfleet is ready to begin many new missions of peaceful exploration and scientific endeavour. At Utopia Planitia, “Project Ulysses” enters the final phase of construction and her new Captain is assigned to get the ship and crew ready for an exciting new mission of exploration. The third Excelsior-class starship to be completed, the Ulysses launches to great fan fare when shown to the public for the first time, but the course of peace never runs smoothly and soon enough, Ulysses will become embroiled in a turn of events that will make fifty years of Klingon conflict look like child’s play…

Hidden away on the far side of Mars, Utopia-3 is home to a classified construction project that only senior officers in Starfleet have been briefed on. The vessel is in the final phase of its construction, a name has been chosen and a commanding officer assigned to lead the final stages of this 'Project Ulysses'.

As construction enters the final stages, Captain Tharia sh'Elas, one of the fleets rising stars, assembles the final pieces of her staff jigsaw puzzle and prepares to take the Ulysses on her shakedown cruise to test out a number of technological enhancements. The ship is soon rushed into service when she receives orders from Starfleet Command to launch a covert investigation relating to the sudden disappearance of a Starfleet vessel...

OOC: not sure as to Day and Time, so leaving it as default.

Chaol Westfall had just slashed his test blade down on his opponent, between the neck and shoulder, after he dodged the swiping swing. "Gah!" Ensign Trev grunted as his free hand went to the test blade impacted.…

When Wyatt had told the Captian that he would have the intra-ship's communications system fixed by the end of the day, he had meant it. He thought it would be an easy thing to fix and that he might even have some spare time to explore around the ship. As…

He was rapt. Soft red light crept like a hazy fog about them, an ember in what was, to Ennani eyes, true black. To Fyn, it was a different creature. True black was rare to a tetrochromat. Pinpricks of what were white were not just white but understood in shades…

Lieutenant Mitchell placed his elbows on his desk and began slowly massaging his temples. So far today had been spent speaking with four different Admirals at Starfleet Command in San Francisco and the head of the Federation’s Diplomatic Corps in Paris. 'Communications must have been having a field day.' He…

Lieutenant Nathan Mitchell was not happy. He'd worked his entire career for a billet on a Constitution-class starship and after only six months on board the Endeavour, Starfleet had ordered him to return to Earth for reassignment. That was unusual enough but when he reached Starfleet Command, he was directed…
