All aboard the USS Aurora, and towards discovery!

Welcome to the USS Aurora, relaunched in 2393 after a massive refit effort. A brand new mission awaits those aboard, as the Federation refocuses its efforts on its core values: Exploring new worlds, and new civilizations.

A character who was once an NPC on the ship, operations officer Iona, is now inhabited by a player! Welcome Lt. Iona to the Aurora! Hopefully he'll keep us going through the mountains of paperwork a starship generates.

I've gotten all crew who have participated up and running, including in the Theta Fleet roster as well. So welcome to Lieutenant Ka'Tock, Dr. Maxwell, and Lieutenant Nastari! I'm super excited we now have almost as many blue uniforms as red and gold combined!

Additionally, I'm going to be making a push here soon to update our wiki - it didn't come with when we re-opened the site, and my life's been a little hectic, so that sat by the wayside. But it's time to make it way clearer what's aboard the Aurora (for example, the ol' bird's far too small to include a holodeck, but it does have a small gym!). I'll have complete deckplans, and a breakdown of the crew - these may be entirely irrelevant to some, but given that our sim's based on a ship with a very finite amount of resources, I like people knowing what's around.

The first big mission post has split the senior crew - half going to Nal'daya in the Waverider shuttle (http://memory-alpha.wikia.com/wiki/Waverider) to work out what the scientists there have seen, and the other half staying behind to try and get the Aurora working properly. Looks like we're all going to get busy soon!

Since it hasn't yet been said, it's time to!

Welcome to Lieutenants Nakano and Hadren! The Aurora now has a complete set of Operations department heads!

This also brings us up to the point that the sim could be considered active. To that end, I think we'll start moving towards making some things happen! I'll be working on more aggressively recruiting, but in the meantime, settle in! Get in some post time with your crew mates!

Once upon a time, the Aurora plied the quadrant, studying unique lifeforms and interesting phenomena. Then, their adventures faded to the background.

But they've returned, with new anomalies to scan, new survey missions to complete, and new science experiments to perform! So let's get out there, people, and start learning!

Daniel took to the ready room while he waited for something to change. The ship was oddly silent while the engineering team worked on repairs, which left him ill at ease. He took to his desk, reviewing new crew allocation reports, with a mug of black tea in hand.

Personal Log, Captain Daniel Westphalen, Stardate 94931.32.

The last six months, on assignment for Admiral Hastings while my command was being refit, reminded me of a simpler time. Adjutant work is by no means easy, but it is an environment where my decisions are not scrutinized, my ship's positive attrition…
