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!

We're back at the station folks! The Log I just posted pushed us forward. Have a bar fight, spend a sultry night with someone green, or sit around in zero-G staring at the ceiling! It's Shore leave time :)
Keep your eyes peeled, though! We're setting up some fun plot points on this shore leave! IF you want to be involved, let me or Kitty know!

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

Kyt frowned, upon receiving the news that Soren was missing. With a scowl, she suited up in her holstered phasers, comfortable running shoes, and security uniform, pausing to absent-mindedly fiddle with the ear missing it's earring.

Captain's Log, Stardate 68345.3
We've finally reached the Starbase and I think everyone is far past ready for some much needed R&R. A lot of things are still up in the air with the crew. I have no idea what's going through the minds of Hunter or T'Vana, but…

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…
