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.

Posted on Mon Feb 26th, 2018 @ 2:57am by Commander Mal Xustos in Out of Character

We know not everyone got a chance to tag in the Dance of Death JP. Not to worry. There will be plenty of opportunities to tag coming up, as well as a little down time between missions while we're at Mckinley Station for repairs. That'll be time for sub-plots. There may be some opportunities for side missions, perhaps involving the 'Return of the Gods" theme. Everyone who has the black blood infection has to get cured and that is going to involve I believe Celtic Mythology. The ship needs repairs. That may be it for this shore leave, but there will be more side missions as we move through the next season, mostly occurring during shore leave, like we did last time, but we'll try and involve more people. Remember that side missions have to progress quickly so as not to hold up the main story so those who wish to be involved with them need to be able to check tags everyday and reply as quickly as they are able. Side missions are not a requirement and no one will be penalized if they don't have time to participate.

Great work on this mission, especially those who came aboard mid-mission with very little idea what the Heck was going on.

Thanks All,

Mal Xustos

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!

Posted on Tue Feb 21st, 2017 @ 2:08am by Captain Enalia Telvan in General News

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

Thanks! ^_^
