Welcome to the USS Antares!
The galactic south has become a hotbed of lawlessness. Each major incident in recent history has forced the Federation to send more and more of it's military forces north to help maintain the peace, leaving a power vacuum in its place. Into that vacuum has flowed pirates, slavers, and criminals. Some of the good men left behind have gone bad, some out of necessity, others out of greed. Now, the region threatens to crumble into chaos.
The USS Antares has been chosen as the first of many Federation vessels to return to the region and bring it back to the realm of stability. Their mission is to run out the pirates, track down the slavers, and root out villainy wherever it may hide. She will bring law to the south again.
Do you have what it takes to ride on the right side of the law? Join the USS Antares today!

I've failed in my COly duties! Please give a huge welcome (like extra huge since I screwed up and forgot to announce it before!) to Matt, who will be playing Lieutenant JG Sellehxian T'bex, our new diplomatic officer (lord knows our crew NEEDS a diplomat so Soren isn't the only sane one).
Welcome to the sim, Matt! Can't wait to see what you'll bring to the story!

Another new crew member today. Please welcome Matt B. to the sim, playing Lieutenant JG Zaverial Holder of Faith! He's playing another original race, which I think is awesome, and I'm looking forward to seeing what he'll bring to the mad house.
Welcome aboard, Matt B! We're excited to have you!

The Captain's Log I just posted sets us on course for Operation Looking Glass. We've got 9 in game days to get there (I'd like to push forward to arrival in a week or so OOC). Feel free to write up any character dev stuff or posts to establish yourselves more over the next week.
I'll be kicking off some JPs to get things started for moving ahead in a week or so, so be ready for those!
Good luck and good writing!

One in, one out, sadly.
Our own Lt. JG Silver is once again no longer with us after becoming unresponsive. I hope that he's well and that the road rises up to meet him. Until we meet again, good sir!
However, as Todd leaves, I'm happy to report that the lovely Lori will be joining us playing Lt. JG Kathryn Dallas, our new aCMO! Give her a warm welcome (and some JP starts!)
And keep rocking guys, I this crew :D

Eleanor had barely any time to recover in sickbay when she had first overheard chatter about a virus being sent to the Gorn device. She wondered how much information the crew was able to gather and if they too had managed to break into the Gorn's systems.
Once the shuttle…
T'vana, unsurprisingly, found her way to Claira's bedside, after the briefing.
She sat, quietly. She said nothing.
It was not the sound of her voice, that woke Claira.
It was the softest sobbing she had ever heard, paced by the occasional sniffle.
"I'd say..." Claira whispered. "I'm trying to sleep,…
It wasn't surprising to Kate that it'd taken some time to get an appointment on Garran's calendar. She could only imagine how challenging it would be to juggle the duties of a second officer alongside that of Chief Counselor. She imagined it wasn't entirely unlike trying to juggle the duties…

The crew was gathered around the holoprojection table in the war room on deck 2, looking at a 3D representation of their current predicament. More ships had been showing up in the anomaly, leaving them more and more at risk of being discovered, and even more out gunned. With all…

Captain's Log, Stardate 68289.4
We've launched to investigate an odd spacial anomaly near the border between Klingon and Gorn space. It could be nothing, or it could be something. It's preventing all scans to the inside. While many anomalies have fun features like that, the strategic placement of this one…

"We won't let you go,"
Dark shapes surrounded him.
"Take you down below,"
Formless, shapeless, huge and towering.
"Dark crypts of your soul,"
Their voices indistinct, echoing.
"Locked inside your head,"
They sounded intrinsically wrong.
"YOU'RE BETTER OFF DEAD!!"
They moved in, crowding Garran, their thunderous roar ripping through his…

Captain's Log, stardate... uh... computer, append Stardate.
We're back... successful... I guess. E'kruk is dead, Haruna is pretty well being committed for the time being... Voltaire is in jail, and Hunter is doing everything in her power to fall on that sword for him. I'd admire her commitment…
