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.

Ok, I guess we're a bit of the curve, what with having a queue of posts to post every month... But we've just about caught up with our queue and we've now posted everything that happened over the shore leave mission Earthly Visitations! Huzzah! Everyone did extremely well and I'm very proud of all of you.

As for Dance of the Valkyries, most of the mission dependant posts have already been written and we're working on the aftermath posts for it now. For our time after it, I have created a new mission called Recovery Trek, which will take place at DS9. We will be offloading our Federation and Romulan refugees there, as well as resupplying and performing some repairs. On top of that, some drama will be happening on several fronts.

The Tribunal is drawing closer. Several posts will need to happen regarding that.

Asa's father is dying and there's bound to be a LOT of drama surrounding that.

The Bajorans will likely protest the USS Hera.

We have an Asgardian wedding coming up.

There are a few more things, but I can't think of them off the top of my head. This is the time for character development and side quests so let's see what we can come up with!

» December and Escaped Pantheon Awards

Posted on Fri Jan 11th, 2019 @ 2:24am by Captain Enalia Telvan in General News

It was another banner month for the Hera in December. With the holidays and the stress and travel, most sims go on hiatus. But we rolled on through like a boss, due to all of the cool stories we had to tell this month. The spatial anomaly containing the Worldship of Log’yerm/// offered opportunities for character building stories alongside high adventure, intrigue and even a climactic battle with demonic cultist Keebler elves who were trying to summon Asmodeus.

Picture the brass reading this one.

A great month with great writing and good times, so let's get to the awards, which you all so richly deserve!

-=Fleet Level Awards=-

- Area 51 Gold Medal
This is based on post count and average posts per user- a pure numbers game versus other sims in our Task Force. We’ve now gotten Gold four months in a row! This is amazing and unprecedented! Let’s keep up the amazing work and we are already on track to set more records this month!

- Area 51 Player of the Month - Commander Rita Paris
The spirit of the 23rd century is alive and well in the Hera’s First Officer. Always at hand and ready for story consults and plotting, she also makes herself available to anyone who wants to write, even as she seeks new recruits. Flexible, level-headed and good natured, Cmdr. Paris always seeks a diplomatic solution whenever possible, and her enthusiasm and drive make her an invaluable asset to the USS Hera in her ongoing mission.

- Area 51 CO of the Quarter: USS Hera: Captain Enalia Telvan
Taking a ship adrift with no writers and no posts, shuttered and done, and turning it into the powerhouse of the fleet practically overnight is no mean feat, and one accomplished by few. But Captain Telvan and the Hera came out strong and hasn’t let up. Her crew are writing and all aboard are happy, and that’s recognized by the fleet in the CO of the Quarter award, which she couldn’t have done without the support of the finest crew in the fleet.

-=Ship Level Awards=-

- Hera's Crew Choice - Commander Rita Paris
Commander Rita Paris is, in many respects, the glue that holds the Hera together and the Engine that keeps her moving. An instrumental figure in organizing key arcs, keeping stories alive, and bringing other characters together.

- Departmental Distinction: Sciences - Lieutenant JG Asa Dael
Doctor Dael's amazing commitment to the well being of everyone on the Hera and skill at diagnosing and treating problems at every level while providing unparalleled compassion. All of this and more is on perfect display in her emotional counseling, diagnosing and ultimate treatment of Lt. JG Dox in the story "Medical Revelations".

- Departmental Distinction: Technological Services - Lieutenant Commander Thex sh'Zoarhi
Thex's ability to investigate and diagnose the artifacts of the gods has been instrumental in the HERA's mission.

- Good Conduct Ribbon - Lieutenant Commander Thex sh'Zoarhi
Always ready and willing to write, Thex will reach out to others to start a story and never turns down a request to write. In and out of character, Lieutenant Commander Thex sh'Zoarhi represents the true spirit of Starfleet. Even if her name is a pain in the butt to write.

- Team Dynamics -For their cooperation and assistance in the Anansi Affair.
Lieutenant Mnhei'sahe Dox
Lieutenant JG Asa Dael
Ensign Mona Gonadie
Petty Officer 3rd Class Ila Dedjoy
Emergency Medical Hologram Mk X

- Enigma Ribbon of Excellence - Commander Rita Paris
Once again, a threat to the Hera is stopped by the simple conversation of an onboarding by Commander Paris. Ensign Mudd, we hardly knew ye.

- Purple Heart - Baroness Schwein von Alcott
For taking a blade to the gut when the fate of the galaxy hung in the balance.

- Captain's Honor - Lieutenant Mnhei'sahe Dox
For outstanding enthusiasm for writing and creativity for the continued narrative.

- Tour of Duty: Deep Space - For active participation in the mission 'Escaped Pantheons'
Commodore Farenia Meowlith
Ensign Mona Gonadie
Ensign Tathaa
Petty Officer 3rd Class Ila Dedjoy
Baroness Schwein von Alcott
Captain Enalia Telvan
Commander Rita Paris
Lieutenant Commander Thex sh'Zoarhi
Lieutenant Seregon French
Lieutenant Alex Sexton
Lieutenant Sonak
Maica III 47
Lieutenant Mnhei'sahe Dox
Lieutenant JG Asa Dael
Ensign Avendar Jurot
Lieutenant Samuel Clemens XV

That brings us to the conclusion of the awards for the month, and we really couldn’t be more proud of each and every one of you. Everyone did an outstanding job of keeping those creative juices flowing, offering what time they have and crafting some really amazing writing. All of you should take great pride in your endeavors throughout this mission, because you have certainly made us proud. Because the Hera’s pretty darned amazing, and we owe it all to teamwork- the Starfleet way.

Warp speed.

» Happy New Year!

Posted on Tue Jan 1st, 2019 @ 12:30pm by Captain Enalia Telvan in General News

Happy New Year everyone! As we start 2019, we start off with hope and a freshness for writing together that can last the whole year. That being said, the sim is also transitioning into the year 2396 to follow the progression of the years. On top of that, we have four annual awards that have been earned.

Gold Crown of Fantastic Writing - Captain Enalia Telvan
- For providing a great Captain character as well as many memorable NPCs and villains.

Silver Crown of Fantastic Writing - Commander Rita Paris
- For always being on watch and knowing the habits of every crewmember through every storyline as well as providing a wonderfully amazing storyline of her own.

Bronze Crown of Fantastic Writing - Lieutenant JG Melanie Dox
- For diving into the deep end and nearly drowning in the joys of collaborative writing.

Spirit of Hera - Lieutenant JG Melanie Dox
- For showing us the joys and innocence of writing an amazing and evolving character side plot, most of which is still developing or has yet to be posted, coupled with a joyful willingness to write with anyone.

Again, Happy New Year! It's 2396/2019 so let's show this world what we can do!

» Amazing Crew Gets More Awards!

Posted on Thu Dec 13th, 2018 @ 5:59pm by Captain Enalia Telvan in General News

Everyone, you are all so amazing that the fleet has awarded us, for the third month in a row, Unit of Distinction: Gold for Area 51. On top of that, we've also gotten the Task Group CO Unit of Distinction Award for the third month in a row. I can't begin to tell you how proud I am of everyone. Your dedication and enjoyment shines through so much that other sims and the fleet are taking notice. Not a week goes by that I don't get asked what my secret is and I have to tell them that it's all of you. Without your support, none of this would be possible. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

All of our Awards

Thanks in advance!
