“Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers, but to be fearless in facing them." ― Rabindranath Tagore

It’s 2394, and new threats lurk around every corner...

In the last decade, the galaxy as we know it has changed beyond measure. Mars and the Utopia Planitia were attacked by rogue synthetic lifeforms, and the hub of ship design and production spread around the Federation. With the subsequent ban on synthetics, holographic technology advancements surged. Elsewhere, the after effects of the synth attack were felt far and wide. A rescue armada gathered together by Admiral Jean-Luc Picard was destroyed, leaving the Romulan people to suffer in the wake of a disastrous Supernova in their home systems. Cyberneticists from various empires saw their work wiped out and tensions with the Federation suffered. In the aftermath of these life changing events, outlying Federation worlds continue to spread dissent and threaten to cede from paradise, but a newly elected President seeks to unite the worlds again and seek an end to growing tensions.

However, on the evening of her inauguration, President Iden Morr of Bajor was assassinated in an attack that sent shock waves across the Federation. Fleet Admiral Clancy has ordered Starfleet to its highest level of alert since the synth attack on Mars. Border patrols have increased with all major powers and Ambassadors recalled as investigations take place. In the outer rim, Federation starships begin to assert their dominance in a crackdown on rising tensions. Despite the dark days behind us, there is still hope for sense to prevail. The Starfleet mandate of peaceful exploration and scientific discovery remains, and it is our job, the crew of the Polaris-class USS Ulysses, to carry out that mandate.

Together, we will boldly go where no one has gone before…

The Polaris class.

Without question, the third vessel she had now served upon in as many months was beyond impressive.

Three minutes to spare... Materialising aboard the soon to be renamed USS Cassiopeia, Doctor Nyall Siana flashed a decidedly charming smile in the direction of the ensign on duty as he shouldered his bag and stepped down from the transporter platform. Now that he was safely aboard, he could afford…

Whilst the bridge of a starship wasn't the biggest room on the vessel, it was perhaps the most important. As always, it was the focal point of the ‘Bridge Module’, the nerve-center of every starship, and was manned by the top officers of each department when required. For a ship's…

Jayse woke up once again with a cold hard surface on her back, her eyes slowly opened and as her eyes focused she was once again greeted by the unusual environment that was her prison cell. It was not the worst cell she had seen, it was cool but not…

Adam had expected a lot more longing for his last ship when they transferred. The familiar faces probably helped a lot. Especially that both he and Jon had been assigned to the ship, both maintaining their department head roles. Medical had not been assigned a full DH for the shakedown.…
