Welcome to the USS Mercury NCC-74676

"Our small steps turn to our giant leaps..."

Curiosity brought humanity and other races out of the darkness and into the light. It was curiosity and the thirst for knowledge that separated them from other species. It drove them to discover fire, learn to farm, reach out beyond their narrow territories, form clans, then nations. It moved them to explore their worlds, then reach out into space.

The Federation was formed when worlds united and came together. Exploration was at the center of the foundation. The Mercury has returned to that foundation. She was designed for that purpose and Starfleet sought out those with the pioneer spirit. Those men and women of every species with a sense of adventure and discovery, who want to bring the Federation into a new and greater light.

Come with us as we seek out new life and new life forms, as we explore and patrol the far reaches of the Beta Quadrant.

Welcome to the Mercury, a diverse sim, where everyone can feel welcome. A place where the people who tell the stories (character development) and the stories we tell, and create together, are of equal importance.

The year is 2394 and the U.S.S. Mercury has been sent on patrol duty of the Beta Quadrant and to start exploring its far reaches. Who knows what they may encounter but one thing is for sure, they will go through many life changing experiences so join us and have your life changed as well.

Hey all,

Sorry I've been gone for a bit. My abuelo(grandfather) recently died then I got caught up with a bunch of other stuff. Went to NYC Pride yesterday marched in the parade with my hermano(brother) representing Disney and her affiliates/subsidiaries. 'Twas a fun time.

Now, let's get back to work.

Phase II has already begun. A JMP with all current characters was started. Here are the events that this post will lead to...

1) A problem has occured on the L-4 station. Hayes and a team will need to investigate and help the Andorians.

2) Dr. Chaparral must begin work on a cure/treatment for the disease plaguing the Ventarans

3) Zaedra leads an investigation into the deaths of former crew and the origin of the lightening storms.

4) Kea will be on ship running over watch.

I will be on later today to catch up on my current posts and to start the new ones. When I log in I'll have more details and as always please feel free to come up with unique ideas while posting!

Posted on Thu Jun 1st, 2017 @ 3:02pm by Captain Zaedra ch'Anidem in General News

Hey everyone,

Once we wrap up the current Joint Mission Posts, please don't rush them quality over quantity; we will start Phase II of Redemption.

Here is a summary of events so far...

Arrival at Ventar system, the senior officers have met with Ambassador Noriaga and Commander Zaedra. The Andorian General, Commander T'Vir and Ambassador Noriaga have met on the L-4 station which is ready to go online. Most of the command staff and some marines have gone to the Capital City for a greeting with the Aeldor(elected monarch) until a freak-lightning storm arrived and several people were killed including Commander T'Vir, Ambassador Noriaga, Yeoman Cortez, and the Aeldor. Starfleet Command has placed Commander Zaedra in charge of the U.S.S. Mercury and the Ventar mission and Jeassaho is promoted to the rank of Commander. Officers assigned for the Ventar mission have been reassigned to the Mercury.

Currently in progress taking place during the arrival time, Kea admits to being pregnant to Commander T'Vir. A memorial service is being held for the fallen. Zaedra is having his first mandated counseling appointment with the new Chief Counselor. Some back posts for this mission and to be placed in the Timelines mission area.

Phase II:

Following another Priority One Message from Starfleet Command, Zaedra is promoted to the rank of Captain to ensure his diplomatic authority. The Mercury crew begins to investigate the origin of the storms. A war-time Aeldor is in place titled the Reigning Monarch which is the daughter of the previous Aeldor. Tachyon emissions are discovered in a remote area infested with high levels of radiation on the planet the ruins of the former Capital City from the last true Empire of Ventar. If anyone has any character subplots they want to continue or start please PM me so I am aware of what they are.

Phase II will start on June 8th and all current JPs that have not been posted will be reviewed.

Thank you guys for all your hard work!!!!

» Congratulations!!!!

Please give Becca/Kea a round of applause for her promotion to Commander. Since the inception of the Mercury, Becca has been most helpful in helping me update and our sim a pretty one. Leading up to her promotion as XO she was also helping with recruitment, missions and has been responsible for a lot of the awesome posts. She's a team player and all of us should follow her example.

I was promoted by Obsidian Fleet by Captain Harrington and Admiral Hurin to the rank of Captain. They have been impressed with my work in getting the Mercury back up to speed. Mostly due to Becca and those of you who keep writing with us.

Finally, all of you should congratulate yourselves for the awesome work this month. This past month of May reminded me why I love simming!!!!
