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.

As the last of the 2017 awards roll in, I'm reminded that while we have all received local awards and many have received fleet level awards, It takes all of us to receive the multitude of golds, silvers, and bronzes that we did. On top of that, the quarterly awards that both I and Mal received were in no small part due to the writing abilities and dedication to the stories we've put together of every member of the sim. This goes doubly so with Mal's XO Area 50 XO of the Year award. There are a lot of great sims in the fleet and he's not only shown them that he's a great XO directly, but indirectly with your abilities and writing. Thank you.
On top of that, this has been an absolutely epic year for awards, both before and after we moved to Area 51. Don't believe me? Take a look!
As the year ends, we begin to wrap up a story arc that's lasted many years on the Hera - the Master has haunted us for almost as long as the sim has been running. Hopefully the next long term arc is just as intriguing and everyone sticks around for it. ^_^ Thank you for writing with us and being part of the Hera's Family.

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.

Inside the sphere, Enalia was one of the first to wake up. The Iconian transporter beam was hard on the crew being as fast and sudden as it was and had knocked almost everyone out when it swept everyone off of the Hera. Looking around, she took in…
The ancient lighting systems in the probe lab flickered to life and the atmospheric vents glowed briefly as they started producing an oxygen-nitrogen based atmosphere, starting to fill the room filled with racks upon racks of Herald probes.

The starcharts they had obtained rom the information broker on Tortuga station had been useful.

It took everything Crewman Dedjoy had to arrange this meeting between the new Science and Medical Chiefs and herself. She just hoped she could answer all their questions satisfactorily. Tapping away at the main testing stations, she monitored the samples inside the level ten forcefield for any further changes to…
Clio wasn't sure if Enalia was keeping herself updated with the progress on the Master's profile. Regardless, she felt obligated to at least talk to Enalia about what Aewia had shared with her. Whether Enalia had read the file or not, Clio felt the need to tell someone, and Enalia…

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,…
