Current Mission:
Mission 01: A New Beginning


The USS Ascension, newly arrived in the Delta Quadrant, is ready to accept its first assignment. The Dristrins, a peaceful race whose planet sits alone in its solar system, are under attack. Aliens who they describe as "phantoms" have been raiding supplies, hunting down their leaders, and generally causing chaos. In order to defend themselves, they've asked both for orbital protection and for the training of a planetary defense force. Starfleet, wishing for allies in the region, has agreed, and has dispatched the strongest ship they have. What awaits the Ascension, however, remains to be seen...

Sam exited his private dining room with a small groan, PADD already back in his hand. Just like every other meal recently, it had been a working dinner. While the ship traversed the Raeyan Transit Corridor, he was receiving constant updates from the other Starfleet assets in the area. With…

ON:

Tyson stormed out of the CO's Office and started heading towards the XO's Office before he remembered that there was no XO aboard. He then veered to find Lieutenant Remy, the Chief Operations Officer. He'd know what to do about this bullshit.

King consulted a terminal to locate the…

The last day or so had not been an especially enjoyable one for Adam Fletcher. Word of his reassignment had reached him late, allowing just a few hours for him to grab the few belongings he'd had at hand and make his transport toward the Providence fleet yards. Combine that…

Executive Officer's log, supplemental.

I am beginning to settle into my new position, and my new office. On a ship as large as the Ascension, it's both convenient and curious that my office and quarters are only one deck away from the bridge. To be honest, I might have preferred…
