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!

Garran sat at a table, tall pitcher of drink untouched, PaDD in front of him and a thoughtful, distracted expression upon his wolven brow. He looked less than pleased, even forlorn, with his ears wilted and brows furrowed in concern.

"Doc! Get in here! She's wakin' up!" He called.
"Doc!" He called again as Soren stirred further.
T'kom entered the room, calmly and strode to a nearby readout, "Doctor Reyes in on her way. I trust you won't be assaulting her, Lieutenant?" The said, quietly.
"I already apologized for that.…

With all of the changes around the ship lately, to include her on duty promotion, Kate was glad that at least physically, her work hadn't changed much. Having an office nearby sickbay meant that she could still assist in sickbay in between counseling appointments, which was particularly important currently because…

I took this job to escape from these kinds of things, you know. This should've been a nice and easy, cushy job, migrator willing. No more being shot at, no more being stabbed, no more people trying to kill me. I know I shouldn't complain about those things, they come…

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 68320.6
We came, we saw, we managed to not get blown up. Information on the Gorn fleet hidden within the anomaly has been sent to Starfleet Command, and the USS Calypso took over searching the area for the remains of the device from us. We're finally heading…

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…
