USS Hera Books and Art


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.

» Upcoming Sim Hiatus

Posted on Fri Jul 31st, 2020 @ 2:51pm by Captain Enalia Telvan in Sim Announcement

I feel that this has been a long time coming, but unfortunately the USS Hera is going to have to close its doors for a while. Now before anyone freaks out, this is only temporary to refresh and recover from burnout. We've been going full steam for well over a year and with the world as it is, the pandemic, degrading health bars, social and racial injustice, as well as the world literally being on fire...

Well, the Senior Staff and I agree that getting ourselves and the crew motivated to write has become more of a job than a hobby.

Thus, we're going to take a hiatus of a minimum of 2 months but most likely closer to 6, stop all writing, put the plot of the Hera on hold, and let everyone focus on life for a while without worrying about the Hera. We'll still be here on the site and in chat for when we're ready to come back.

As for when we're stopping the story, That's the purpose of the Bulikaya Particle mission. We all have a grand adventure, wonder about our place in the universe, and go our separate ways for a while in universe - around 5-7 years we figure. Then when we're ready, come back together and celebrate with a shiny new coat of paint on the old girl.

How does that sound? ^_^

» New Year, New Plots!

Posted on Sat Jan 4th, 2020 @ 2:09pm by Captain Enalia Telvan in General News

Happy New Year Everyone!

So as we enter the new year in both real life and the sim (2397), we find ourselves wrapping up a long mission of diplomacy, combat, intrigue, and general mayhem. Unlike most missions, this one has taken a bit longer than most, likely due to the holiday season. Still, we have all done amazing writing and I applaud the outstanding work that you've all put into the USS Hera over the course of the year. Without you, there is no narrative. I may be the one throwing out ideas, but you're all the ones running with them and coming up with even more to them, creating the actual universe in which we fly. Thank you.

Also, as we enter this new year, several writers dear to us have left us to find their path elsewhere. for them, I thank them for their time and energy and wish them well on their way. We also have some new writers that I would like to welcome into our fold. Each of you are now precious members of our family. If there is ever anything we may do for you, please, let us know.

Now, as for the current mission. Soon we'll be finishing up with writing the last of those posts and posting the backlog. As a reminder, Dox, our Flight Chief, plans out which post gets posted next so that everything is in order - Flight chief navigates our path. ^_^ So if you have any questions on that, please let her know.

Our next two missions will be happening concurrently. There's been a bachelorette party in the works for an NPC for some time and our faster writers will be taking part in it as a side mission while everyone will be participating in the main plot of the Dedjoy system Mystery. We'll be visiting a planet we literally created with a genesis wave last season to see why a research team went missing. Que the eerie music. ^_^ Chronologically, the party will happen first, but we should be able to write that up pretty quick, giving us plenty of buffer to give us plenty of time to write the mystery at a much more relaxed pace.

So, with the new year, comes new missions and new opportunities and a slew of new plots! I really hope everyone is looking forward to the rest of Season 5 of the USS Hera!

» Theta Fleet Awards

Posted on Sat May 18th, 2019 @ 12:23pm by Captain Enalia Telvan in Sim Announcement

So it's been a while since we've done sim level awards, but there are some Fleet level awards I'd like to address.

First off, in April Lieutenant Sonak won Writer of the month for Area 51! Congrats! You've worked hard in both your personal life and on the sim writing our favorite Vulcan Kolinahr Master and have earned this recognition.

March saw the quarterly awards and Commander Rita Paris won XO of the quarter for Area 51! This just shows how awesome she's been.

Which brings us to a combined third and fourth and so on... April saw us our eighth Gold medal in a row. Frankly, I'm still a bit stunned and proud. I feel like a mama bear that wants to protect her kids. You're all doing so awesome, I want to maul anyone that gets in our way to death!

Great job everyone! Let's see if we can get an entire year of consecutive gold medals and a few more player/writer awards to go with them! ^_^

All sentient life suddenly began shifting through the multiverse, and Rita Paris found herself blinded by the light.

Nobody from the crew of the Hera was seriously injured, save a dislocated shoulder for Commander Rita Paris that was currently being healed back on the Nebula Class Starships sickbay. Rather, the casualties today…
