Welcome to Nova!

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.

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!

Amber stopped by science to pick up the bag she used for away missions and paused when she saw the new science officer. "Hello." She looked around the department with a smile. "How are you settling in?" She had a couple of minutes to chat before they had to…

Mission: Taking Wing
Posted on Wed Apr 12th, 2017 @ 5:26pm by Captain Daniel Westphalen & Lieutenant JG Lucy Maxwell

Daniel found himself wandering down to sickbay during a quiet moment in the duty shift. He knew that a doctor had boarded, but a lax policy on reporting aboard meant he hadn't yet met them. Time to correct that, he figured, stepping through the sickbay doors and peering around.

The Aurora snapped out of warp speed, decelerating smoothly as it passed the heliopause and officially entered the system.

"Report," Daniel said from his perch in the command chair. The new operations duty officer, Ensign Iona, looked down at her console, entered a few commands, and spoke.

"Sensors confirm a…

Djeneba stood in her current quarters and looked around at the myriad of the few items she had to pack and were packed. She knew her new quarters would not be as spacious as they were here on the Savannah. The science officer’s short legs carried her across the room…

Daniel had summoned the ship's... strangest new crew member to deck one, ready room. It was a formality - the captain simply liked looking his new officers in the eye. But he admitted curiosity on this one, for more reason than one.

He busied himself on ship's status reports while…
