Welcome to the USS Hera NCC-79010
"A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP"
-Leonard Nimoy (1931-2015)
"Pain of the heart makes pain of the body seem trivial in comparison."
-Azmaria Post (1980-)
After the USS Bonchune was refit and renamed the USS Hera, she was placed in a science and reconnaissance role across the Federation. That's the 'official' mission. The actual mission is a much more sinister and top secret affair that no one on board, not even the Captain herself, yet fathoms the complexities of.
Now that the Hera has undergone yet another refit supervised by Starfleet Intel using technology they're not happy letting be public knowledge, what dark and sinister secrets will the crew of the Hera discover as they embark on their new missions? What will it cost them? And most importantly, will they survive with their sanity intact?
Join Captain Enalia Telvan and her crew as they travel the stars under the command of the Hera's senior staff and her many experienced officers, as they discover the secrets of deep space.

Everyone please welcome Heather who will be playing our new Chief Medical Officer, Doctor Cassiopeia Yale! Even though it's still shore leave, we still have plenty going on, including a medical mystery for Doctor Yale to jump in and get to work on. Everyone who's not on the current side mission to 892-IV (Magna Roma) please try to find time to start a JP with Heather.
Thanks all and welcome Heather! We look forward to writing with you!

Hello everyone! So we all know what oddball equipment everyone has and there are no future surprises, I've added a space in the character bios so we're all on the same page. Please add in any unusual items your character has or uses regularly in this space. I've added the Captain's items already as an example.
Here are a few examples:
- bladed weapons or custom armaments
- unique features or customizations
- somewhat unique computer tech
- ships, etc...
- large booze collections

As you may have noticed, the new mission "Cardassian Mayhem" has been activated. Please wrap up any posts from "Refit Rondo" at your earliest convenience and begin any new posts after launch in the new mission.
On a more personal note, thank you for letting me guide you through a story from the darkest depths of my mind. I promise this will be a mission to remember.

Some of you may see a new font setup on the Hera. (If you don't, hold down Ctrl and press F5.) This was done due to possible visibility issues for people with poor eyes or other visual difficulties. If there are comments, complaints, or spam about it, please PM me. The new font is a google API font called Aldrich. The upper menu and dashboard as well as the sidebar menus are all still the same Trek font for immersion reasons.

The bridge was quiet when Doctor Cassiopeia arrived via the turbolift. She was greeted by a couple of curious stares, but mostly, the skeleton crew looked bored with their mundane tasks. Cassi didn't dawdle though and was ringing the chime to the Captain's ready room before anyone could ask for…
Mal led T'Pral to his ready room. Standing outside of it, clearly in a very bad mood, was Nexi. She looked as though she was about to say something, but Mal cut her off.
"Wait," Mal said, stopping Nexi with a word.
Mal keyed the code and submitted to a…

The bridge of the Hera was bustling with activity as Enalia looked over three PaDDs a crewman had handed her. Giving a thumbprint to all three, she handed them back and smiled at Crewman Jaxx as he nodded and went about his business. This new bridge module was finally feeling…
Daytona Ral was dreaming. These days, his dreams were usually pleasant. Being with Akira had that effect on him. Holding her in his arms as he slept comforted him and soothed away the pain of the past...usually, but not always. Some nights, he still had nightmares. Tonight was one of…

After a day at high warp, the Hera had finally arrived at Tortuga station, most of an old unfinished Cardassian space station that had been towed around Breen space into pirate territory and was now a piratical stronghold. It had long been a haunt of the Artan fleet when they…

Repairs were completed enough to perform the slingshot back to our own time and the slingshot successfully completed. We are now enroute to our next destination. Command has approved my request for shore leave with one stipulation. We have to be available for questioning afterwards. I imagine it'll…

I am unsure of how to begin. The recent loss of three security officers on an away mission has caused me to rethink the training and readiness of my department aboard the Hera. I will have to increase their hand to hand and melee training as they appear to rely…

I was just getting use to the Katana. I even had friends. Sure, I had too much work to do and way more responsibilities than Starfleet had any right to give to one person, but it was finally home. Like I'd been adrift for the past three decades and had…

The personal log of Lieutenant Commander Sinek
In an interview today with Petty Officer Takethen, I was caused to reflect upon my own logic. This logic dealt with life and death. My logical stance has always been if something is dead, it should remain dead. For all other living around,…
