Cardassian Mayhem

Post Count: 65

The Hera has finished her Intel refit and has been sent on a mission investigating an old Cardassian bio-weapons facility in the badlands.

Death is in the Details

Post Count: 101

The Hera is sent back in time using a slingshot maneuver over the sun BEPI 113. Any knowledge of this star has been removed from all known databases so even finding it is nearly impossible without prior 'arrangements' made with secret organizations.

In the year 2160, the crew has to track down the location of an Orion genetic research facility thought to be run by the master of the prior stations. Infiltration and destruction are preferred, but the crew have to maintain temporal isolation during the mission.

Hera v Hera

Post Count: 169

The crew of the Hera heads to Meroset 347 where Hera herself has issued a challenge to the vessel that has inherited her namesake. There they must overcome Minotaurs, Harpies, Amazons, and marble soldiers in order to sooth the irate woman's anger before she destroys the ship. While they do this, they learn of the plight of the natives to this planet and the hardships they've faced during Hera's reign. The Prime Directive comes into question as they must decide the Goddess's ultimate fate.

It turns out Hera returned because she's pissed at Zeus again because he really couldn't keep it in his pants and she's sending her minions out across the galaxy, harassing civilizations and trying to kill off all his other progeny, including about 40 sentient races, several other gods, etc... Included are Humans, Romulans, Trill, Vulcans, Cervan, Pomtol, and many others.

The initial plan is to go to the planet she's set up operations on currently, a primitive planet of Zeus's offspring that she's torturing, and assess the situation. Use the Selune and Thor to land a covert ops party while the Hera takes a more direct path in. The away teams are to find Hera's power generator and disable it and disable her army's base infrastructure while the ship uses wipe beam phasers to disable her armies and disable her outer defenses using the stealth plating in harrying tactics.

After that, the crew need to reassess the status of the Goddess and determine her future in Federation space. Will diplomacy win out or will Hera's wrath force the crew's hand in the end?

Escaped Pantheons

Post Count: 243

The Hera is sent to a world in the galactic core where reports of sightings of ancient deities have been made. Not just a few times, either. Hundreds of reports have filtered in through diplomatic channels. Aphrodite, Frigga, Hermes, Hercules, Erebus, Loki, Anubis, Sheva, Ra, Bahamut, and even Molor have been supposedly spotted and identified, along with many others that can not be identified due to a lack of database information. The USS Hera has been dispatched to the New Texas system where they will meet with a diplomatic attache about this and further investigate the issue.

What they find is a world ship with a castle at its core filled with what can only be described as elves with eight meter tall summoning stones summoning them back into this realm using the power of the titans.

Fractured Fairy Tales

Post Count: 399

The Tribunal started by Enalia Telvan against her mother has come to a head and the family is split so that eight of the Baronesses support the Princess but the four old guard Baronesses still support the retired Queen Artan and support her outrageous plan of forcing Enalia to give up genetic material to create an heir so the Queen can raise it.

As this has caused a loss of stability in the sector, Intel Command has authorized a covert mission to deal with it... But not with the USS Hera. The command crew and hand picked members of the USS Hera will have to enter the world of the Artan family and not only complete the Tribunal, but board the Captain's personal Miranda class ship and battle it out with her mother for the control of her own fate and the fate of countless others.

During the space duel, a crescendo of plasma fire will rake across each ship, the Princess in her Miranda class and the Queen in her hers, proving the command abilities and skills of each, but it won't be until the boarding action until we see the final death blow. What chaos, mayhem, and sorrows will await us in these corridors?
