Welcome aboard the USS Ark Royal!

"You know the greatest danger facing us is ourselves, and irrational fear of the unknown. There is no such thing as the unknown. Only things temporarily hidden, temporarily not understood." James T. Kirk

With a rich legacy that lives into the late twenty-fourth century, the USS Ark Royal, an Ambassador-class Heavy Cruiser, is assigned to Task Force 72 of Bravo Fleet .

2389- With the destruction of Deep Space 7 by Ravager forces in the Inconnu Expanse late last year and confirmed reports of socio-political factions positioning themselves as heir-apparent to the sitting Autarch of the Tzenkethi Coalition, the Federation Council escalated Starfleet's presence along the Federation-Tzenkethi-Breen Border, while consolidating Federation assets in the region.

The U.S.S. Ark Royal, an aging yet sturdy Ambassador-class ship of the line, was pressed back into service after spending the last ten years in mothballs as a premier force-multiplier. Outfitted with the latest advancements in Command and Control technology, Captain Charles F. McFadden and the crew of the U.S.S. Ark Royal are poised to confront the heart of current galactic intrigue that will define the balance of power in the region for years to come.

» An appointed Interim Commanding Officer

Posted on Friday October 5th, 2018 @ 4:40pm by Lieutenant Commander Esmée Haas in General News

Good morning crew of the USS Ark Royal my name is J. L. Galloway and I will be the interim Commanding Officer of the ship till Captain Charles McFadden returns from his real life military deployment. My official position on the ship is First Officer, which was approved today by the Task Force 72 Command Staff.

My first order of business is to establish who is still with us? I have spoken to Archeron, Emily and Vanth and I know they are willing to return. I sent out an email not to long ago, asking the others.

My second order of business is to start up the captain's mission today. Anyone wanting to be added to the mission please tell me, if you are staying with the sim. The first Joint Post will talk about the captain being called away on an important mission, but we have orders to proceed to the Inconnu Expanse.

My third order of business is the appointment of a second officer, and my interim executive officer, note that the interim position is limited time, once Captain McFadden returns you will be demoted back down to Second Officer, and I will be demoted down to executive officer. We will not be looking for an interim second officer.

I am always available for questions.

Ark Royal,

We are on the verge of starting our mission. Our efforts to date have convinced the leadership to keep Ark Royal running, but I fear those efforts may be in vain unless we address our standing inactivity.

By the end of the day, there will be a joint post entitled "Ninety-Six Hours Part 1" saved on the site. This post will be a mission briefing for all department heads and assistants in the Observation Lounge. If we dedicate ourselves entirely to fleshing everything out, I am confident we can wrap everything up in a few posts.

On to better news.

I approved the application of 'Lieutenant JG Elizabeth Elaine,' authored by Patrick, to be Ark Royal's Navigator earlier today. With this appointment, we are finally on the verge of filling all critical player positions.

I know this has been a protracted process, but the missions we will write together will be well worth the time and effort spent sustaining the Ark Royal.
