Welcome to the USS Ascension!

Fortis Fortuna Adiuvat- Fortune Favors the Bold

Welcome to the USS Ascension! The first of the Ascension-class Dreadnoughts, the Ascension is one of the most advanced and most powerful vessels ever built by Starfleet. Rated for combat, exploration, scientific, diplomatic, and logistics missions, the 1,600 member crew is dedicated to serving at the forefront of Starfleet and the Federation. The Ascension is also unique in that it serves as a training vessel for the finest of Starfleet Academy’s cadets. Under the command of Commander Samuel Reynolds and closely monitored by the Academy, these cadets, and the crew alongside them, plan to tackle the most challenging of Starfleet’s missions.

Join the USS Ascension as it bravely serves as Starfleet’s vanguard and staunch defender!

Current Mission:
Mission 01: Trouble in Transit

The USS Ascension, freshly launched from the PFY, begins its long transit to the Delta Quadrant by setting course for the Raeyan Transit Corridor, the buffer zone between the Romulans and the Kilingons that leads straight to the Fourth of July Nebula. However, disaster strikes the ship as critical systems fail, causing the crew to have to rush to repair them, a sitting duck to those that wish to harm them.
