The USS Hera searches for a cure for the Black Blood plaguing the crew. Hints and folklore say that the Goddess Danu's cauldron can cure any ailment, but locating it could be harder than they're prepared for. The crew must infiltrate a pre-industrial society and locate Danu in her sanctuary temple on a planet known only as NGC-193475 in the Federation database but known as 'Granweh' to the locals. Blending in and adhering to their customs and rituals to gain an audience with Danu might be the easy part, as the crew finds out.
Due to a freak dark matter ionic storm throwing the Hera into a tizzy, the holodecks malfunction and release several holographic horrors into the rest of the ship. Unfortunately, the ship-wide emitters are locked as well, the safeties off. Will the crew be driven mad by the random holographic scenarios before they can regain control of the ship, or will this be the end of the crew of the USS Hera?
Takes place 2 weeks after the last mission
Stuck in the storm for several days
1 week after escape, we arrive at the Artan Orbital Fortress
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?
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.
The Hera is sent to a remote planet near Breen space where an old Section 31 facility just transmitted a distress signal. Will there be a rescue mission or will they be wiping out an old experiment gone wrong? What will they find locked in those vaults?
The USS Hera takes a bit of shore leave to visit Earth and while the crew relaxes, a few old friends decide to say hello.
Odin, against the wishes of the Federation, has sent his Valkyries to attack Starbase 336 and the USS Hera is one of the only ships in range. The crew will have to fight a prolonged space battle against chariots and pegasus mounted Valkyries in orbit of Galorndon Core as well as ground based boarding action defenses against spear maidens aboard the station itself. Why has Odin ordered such an attack at this time? What does he hope to gain? What is Command hiding in the inner depths of Starbase 336?
After the recent mission involving the slumbering Titan Iapetus, Starbase 336, and the Aesir, the USS Hera is headed to DS9 for repairs and resupply. What adventure and insight awaits the crew at this juncture?
After having dealt with the remains of the Titan Iapetus, which was being experimented upon by the Tal Shiar and Starfleet Intel Command and assaulted by the Aesir, the crew of the Hera get an urgent call to arms. Gaia has reformed from the dark matter ion storm the USS Hera previously encountered, and is using a protomatter 'weapon' similar to the Genesis device to not only wipe out any life on planets and moons she comes across, but reseed life on it afterwards, leaving behind a utopia of flora and primitive but deadly fauna.
The Hera is thrown out of the frying pan and into the fire when the crew use an experimental quantum jump drive, taking them to the location of Primordis. Within a day, the Titanic being is finished consuming the local system and is preparing to move on to another star. Will they keep him from consuming all the stars in the sky? Will they return him to his slumber before trillions are left to freeze to death? Or will he just go on consuming every star in his path like an angry, all consuming ice cream cone of death and destruction?
A collection of side stories while the USS Hera makes its way back from the encounter with Primordius to the Artan family orbital fortress.
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?
A warning from Kodria that seems to be from before she was frozen but contains clips from after she was frozen and in the future is delivered warning of Mudd and his daughter changing the Federation's future to try and create the Terran Empire. The crew of the Hera must travel through time to stop him.
